'Big Brother 11' Recap: Star Wars - Episode I: The Russell Menace (Page 3/3)
Darth Ronnie meets with his non-jock minions to consider doing what's right, using the force for good and backdooring Emperor Russell-tine.  They go to Princess Laura and tell her the plan, wanting a promise that if she wins HoH, she won't target any of them.  Princess Laura blindly agrees.
Next on his docket is for Darth Ronnie to recruit Jessie the Hutt and Natalie Fett.  The bounty hunter is all for it, but the Hutt wants to keep Princess Laura chained to the block and protect his Emperor.  However, he'll go with the flow, mostly because his mobility is very limited.

So all the pieces are in place, and despite being tempted by the Dark Side, it looks as though Ronakin Skywalker may not give in.  However, that's not the way the movie ends, and we all know it.

Power of Veto Ceremony

As expected, Jeff Solo uses the Power of Veto to bust himself out of his frozen carbonite nomination.  It looks like the Force will finally win, and then Darth Ronnie puts up Queen Jordan-dala, betraying her just like Anakin did to Padme.

Why would he make this move out of nowhere?  Well, Darth Ronnie is afraid that Princess Laura has finally caught onto his master plan.  And fear leads to anger that she might expose him.  Anger leads to hate.  And hate leads to suffering.  In this case, it's the suffering of Princess Laura, the viewing audience, logic and reason.

Because what Darth Ronnie fails to notice is that he told everyone about his plan to backdoor Princess Laura, and Grand Moff Kevin, Lydia Calrissian and General Chima-us were all right next to him when he told Princess Laura that he was 99.9 percent certain he would backdoor Emperor Russell-tine.  So his fear of being discovered as a liar is ruined by the fact that, in order to evict one person who knows his secret, he revealed his secret to everyone.

On Thursday, either Carrie Fisher or Natalie Portman will go home.  I guess there's no room in the Big Brother universe for a strong and independent woman.
