Welcome to a new episode of The Addison House, where eight different strangers try to get along with each other and retain their sanity while locked in a haunted house for $50,000. Let's review how the eliminations have gone so far:
This week is Workout Week. As a small reward for surviving this far, the contestants will be allowed to leave the house (and cure some of their stir-craziness) to take a class in athletics. Back at the house there are two treadmills, two workout machines, and a swimming pool. Doing well at this task is crucial -this is the LAST week that contestants can earn Immunity. This is also the last opportunity to earn money and Free Passes. Prizes this week goes like this: Whoever gains the most athletic skill points by the end of the week wins Immunity. Second place receives a Free Pass. Third place receives $100, to potentially gain enough to buy a Free Pass. After this week, there will be no more money-making opportunities, no more Free Pass giveaways, and no more Immunity. Make it count, guys!
We have looked around and, oddly enough, our ghost friend hasn't altered anything this week. Has he calmed down, maybe? Regardless, let's check in on our contestants.
Rocco! You're eating like a pig. Slow down or you'll--
Alyssa: Aw, Lucas, your jokes always cheer me up.
Lucas: I'm glad...you have a really beautiful smile.
Alyssa: Awwww, Lucas!
It's about time, you two. We've been waiting five weeks for this.
Lucas: Uh, Dewayne? How is dropping a spoonful of spaghetti sauce on the floor a horror story?
Dewayne: Have YOU ever tried to scrub spaghetti sauce out of white carpet?
Alyssa: Sometimes when I look at you, my cheeks go red...
Rocco: *giggles like a little girl*
Alyssa! How could you?! You would flirt with Rocco while Lucas is still sleeping? Shame, shame.
Well, folks, it's a beautiful Thursday. The contestants have all of today and tomorrow to finish up their athletic skill gaining, before discovering on Saturday who gets Immunity. They're all working very hard - this is a very close one. Meanwhile...uh, there's a black cat on the front porch. Black cats are usually a sign of ominous things to come, like....wait, who is that that just entered the house?
Christine: Nyeh heh heh heh!
We didn't realize you were coming today.
Christine: It's been fifty long years. I was a young woman when I last entered this house. And....why is the place a mess?!?
Well, it's being used as the setting for a reality TV show right now. We started out with eight contestants, now there are four. They've, uh...heard quite a bit about you.
Christine: Well, they should have. This is my house! I'm going to go meet them.
Yeah, you do that, Christine...while we keep our cameras carefully trained on you...
Christine: You're a charming little darling, aren't you? I'm Christine Addison. Pleasure.
Dewayne: Whoa, lady...
Christine: You insolent...! I shan't say what I'd like to do to you!
Dewayne: *yawn* I've beat a German in a fistfight. What have YOU done?
Lucas: Well, I figure you gotta get on her good side, right?
Well, I wouldn't get TOO friendly with her. She may start liking you more than you intend, and we already know what she's done with ONE lover...
And, although we could not capture it on camera, we did find Christine leading Lucas to the cellar to "pillow fight" (although she had the symbol of a certain Lifetime Wish known as "Gold Digger" in her thought bubble at the time). Alyssa interrupted their play time to flirt with Lucas. It appears Christine has not taken this well. Her interactions with Alyssa have consisted only of this:
Rocco: I'm, uh, I'm Rocco. It's really a pleasure to meet you...um...did you sleep well last night?
Christine: I slept in my own bed, so yes.
Rocco: Oh, uh, heh heh, that's great. So, um...have you heard this house is haunted?
Lucas: Oh, Rocco, don't talk about this...
Christine: "Haunted"? By...whom, pray tell?
Rocco: Uh...nothing, it's just a rumor I heard.
Christine: You mean by that pathetic man I used to call my husband? Pah. When I see his ghost, I'll believe it. Take my word for it - he's gone for good. I...rather made sure of that.
Rocco: (Yes ma'am!)
Well, it is Friday evening and the contestants are in bed. Like last week, not one contestant was sent to the cellar this week - no one broke even one appliance! They've gotten much more careful during their stay here, evidently. Meanwhile, the winner of Immunity, with 6 1/2 skill points, is......once again, Dewayne! Being spared from Immunity last week, Dewayne has worked hard and has earned it again. He has guaranteed a spot for himself in the Top Three. Meanwhile, Alyssa, with 6 skill points, has earned another Free Pass (now she has three!), while Lucas, with 5 1/2 skill points, earns $100. Unfortunately for Lucas, that isn't enough to earn him a Free Pass. He is, in fact, the only contestant without one now, and he won't have another chance to earn one. He'd better be extra careful with his appliances.
And now--...what is that noise? Oh dear, the house is being robbed. No burglar alarm has been installed. Well, we'll just hope she doesn't make off with too many things...oh wait, Lucas has woken up.
Lucas: You ain't never seen an emo kid with guns like mine!
Well, whether it's putting out stove fires or fighting off robbers, the Addison House is a pretty safe place to be while Lucas is around. At least for now...
Meanwhile, Saturday is reward day, and we have installed a luxurious hot tub in the backyard for the contestants to enjoy.
Lucas: Dewayne, has it ever occurred to you that none of us want to see you naked?
Dewayne: I'm staying until next week and there's nothing you can do about it. So I can sit around in my favorite birthday suit all I want.
But alas, as much as we'd like to, we can't dwell on the romance forever. There is the reality that someone must go home tonight. Our second-time Immunity winner, Dewayne, will make the announcement.
Incredibly, yes, Dewayne. Now that we see him with his shirt off, it's no wonder he beat that burglar. Emo boy's starting to become emo MAN!
Dewayne: And if you are standing, you are in the bottom two. Unless you have Immunity, like me. Now I will announce who will be leaving tonight. The person I choose to leave tonight, is Lucas.
Dewayne, again, you can't pick Lucas. He's not in the bottom two.
Dewayne: He hid my clothes!
Then you shouldn't have stripped them off. He's been taking your clothes all week. Learn sometime.
Dewayne: ....It's another tie.
Once again, Dewayne, you are the tie-breaker. By revealing your vote, you will reveal who goes home tonight.
Dewayne: Well...my vote goes to...
Alyssa: I'M going home? But I...Lucas....
Like the week before, hard work to gain Immunity saved Dewayne once again, and his vote eliminated the last female in the game. Although a bit of a worrywart, Alyssa has been kind to each contestant and a very hard-working person, earning Immunity twice herself. She was the first one to develop a friendship on the show - one that just began to blossom into romance this week with Lucas. Unfortunately, such a pure and delightful thing to watch ended up being what eliminated her - she spent so much of her time interacting with Lucas that she'd hardly paid much attention to Rocco or especially Dewayne.
We're so sorry, Alyssa. We loved watching your work ethic and your blossoming relationship with Lucas. We'll miss you.
Lucas: This is just....I can't believe this. This is so stupid.
We're sorry, Lucas. We can't control how the game goes. We simply watch. And thus ends this episode. Goodnight, everyone.
