Michelle is in tears, reading her letter from home.
Libra: Did you get your wine? Your Portuguese wine?
Michelle: No, Napa Valley.
Keesha: Is that your dog?
Michelle: OMG!! I didn't even see him!!
Keesha: Well, congratulations.
Michelle: Thank you. Man, my nieces are having such a good time... they get to stay up late.
Keesha: (looking at a pic) Oh! Are those your nieces?
All kinds of family QnA... nice .. a little tense.. but Libra and Keesha are doing well stepping out of the game and just being there for her. April and Ollie barely make a noise. Give them time. Renny is visibly moved seeing all the family pics. Michelle asks if she's ok. Renny says yes and leaves.
Michelle starts going through her goodie basket.
Meanwhile, Renny has gone down to the Hippie Room and is having such a good cry, I wanna hug her! Poor honey.
Back upstairs in HoH, Michelle is very graciously offering her goodies to everyone.
Dan comes to comfort Renny. Keesha too. Keesha gives her a good hug. Libra comes back down too, and talk returns to game, and how they're sure April & Ollie will stay up there kissing butt for ever.
Michelle is so happy to have all the pics from home. She looks like she feels grounded again, perhaps for the first time since she entered the house. April & Ollie are asking all kinds of questions about her family and life. Jerry is perched, not talking much.
Memphis is perched on the bed, not shovelling any bs, but spot claimed and firmly.
April leaves the room, just for a moment.
Michelle's just thrilled and bouncing around the room... looking at all her stuff.
Michelle: I wish you were here, Jessie! But that's ok...
Pleasant chatter continues...
So far no game talk. It seems as though April may be waiting, hoping Memphis might leave. Then she offers to leave, if Michelle wants to jump up and down and scream.
BB: Michelle, please come to the Diary Room.
Michelle tells them they're welcome to stay, if they like. She goes. Memphis follows. They're hoping alcohol may be involved.
