The Captives - July 7
On the last show, Mark and Jeanne, despite the lack of
chemistry, sneak into this week, at the expense of
Somere and Greg. Will Jeanne and Mark, who realize that
they are on the bubble, bounce back this week? Or did
they just postpone the inevitable by an episode?
For this Screen Test, there will be less action and more
acting, as this scene focuses on the man and the ex-wife
who betrayed him. They will be tied up and delivering
the drama, as the women has to face her greatest fear in
order to survive. Not a lot of action, but it is a major
acting chop scene and it may separate the light weights
from the Hamlets.
House says that the closer the show is to ending, the
more you want it. The door rings, and someone who has
really wanted it walks into the room - Denise Richards.
She wows the room while she shows up and talks about her
life. Her words seem to motivate everyone into kicking
it into overdrive, as she leaves them with, "There's no
magic thing to this. Their dream can be achieved if they
pursue it and work hard."
The hard work looks to take a break as everyone gets to
go to a auto race track. Everyone gets to take a few
laps around the track, and the person who takes care of
their car the best gets a "retake" card, which allows
you to redo the scene if you didn't like it the first
time. This is probably even more important than the
Jared starts it off with a 24.81 second time, and he
thinks he stunk. He actually set the bar high, as no one
can beat his time. Mark, however, instead of standing
and watching, gets advice -but it didn't do him any
good, as he gets it completed in 27.31. The 24.81 time
holds, and Jared wins the retake card. Jared, however,
is seeing the bigger picture than just a card. "I want
to do the best, so I can be the best."
That night, House is trying to make the moves in Corinne
- and maybe she is in his own mind, but Corinne isn't
buying what House is selling and laughs it off, saying
that she has her situation and he has his situation,
that doesn't sound like the strongest defense to me, but
they don't go past talking, so Corinne - for now - is
continuing her celibate ways.
Corinne and the other women are distracted by a French
film that they get in the bucket. Most of the women
enjoy it, but Linda savages the film and the
performances in the movie. The next morning, they all
bicker about the movie and Corinne tells Linda that she
better not talk about her like she talks about the movie
actresses. That was pretty funny, as Linda calls herself
the Blonde B#tch. Appropriate, no?
In Howard Fine's acting class, they were doing a
rehearsal of the scene as they were both blindfolded and
tied. Corinne and Mark seem to like each other, while
Mae, who has House, wants nothing to do with it. Jared
likes working with Linda, but Howard didn't think they
took it seriously and Melisande, who is used to working
with Jared, thinks that if Jared got a big head, it
could lead to disaster. Foreshadowing?
Howard gives the Casting Card to.... Mark, who will get
an extra hour worth of training with him and his female
partner. Outside of the area, House is concerned because
he felt that there was no fear in the performance - and
he thinks that it could haunt him. We already have Mae
saying that she has no desire to work with House.
Mark gets to select his co-star, and he picks....
JEANNE!!! Only kidding. He selects Corinne. Everyone
else has to write down someone's name on a piece of
paper. John selects Melisande, and Melisande picks John,
so that's settled. Everyone else's card got a little
complicated. Jared puts a question mark next to his
sign, as he says that it doesn't matter to him who he
gets selected with. Sean comments that it's because
Jared can't make up his mind, and that gets Jared
cursing out at Sean. They have a war of words and I have
a feeling that we haven't seen the last of this.
It's not the Jared vs. Sean show, so we'll get to rest
of the selections. Jared gets selected with Linda and
Jeanne gets to act with Sean - which means that Mae gets
stuck with House. Mae says that it has nothing to do
with House, but she thinks that she's screwed if she's
stuck with House. The way she is reacting to House, she
may want to exchange him for Viviana.
Mark gets the hour - but it seems like Howard is working
more with Corinne, which gets Mark a little steamed.
When their hour is over, Mae and House come in and
Howard immediately realizes the tension between them. He
warns House to not put up the comic front and to get
into the drama aspect. He lays into Sean for not being
dramatic, and he realizes that he wanted more time with
Howard. "I want to try to understand what he's talking
He can find more drama with Jared, as the continue to
get into it. Sean was joking around and Jared thought he
was being serious. Jeanne notes that Jared has to get
out of his candy-coated bubble, as things are going to
get harder from this point on...
House and Corinne are talking about bringing characters
up to life - and they compare noted to try to create the
fear for him. Jared has the fear of not getting up on
time, so she goes around and makes sure that everyone is
awake. Jared waits outside for everyone else, who are
taking their sweet time to get out of the house.
Gerry Lively warns everyone that there is no action to
hide behind, and Marki adds that they have to rely on
each other only - and if they can pull it together, they
deserve to advance. Gerry warns Jared that if he uses
the retake card, the first take is thrown out and the
second take is the one that they use. As always,
everyone only has one shot. Will they use it wisely?
Melisande was 'interesting', said Jared, but in a good
way. Corinne and Mark looked good, but Mae feels very
frustrated with House. After the acting, she eats her
words, adding that she was ashamed because he was
actually very good and turned it up.
It's Jared's turn. He didn't feel like he was
emotionally connected, so he uses the Retake. The second
time, to him, was worse, and he felt that his
overconfidence may have cost him. Gerry didn't like it
and Linda wanted to punch him in the face. That would be
the sign of some dissatisfied people.
Melisande is having an episode of self-doubt as she is
concerned about being eliminated. Jared thinks that he
is toast. The producers and directors think
that...Mark/Corinne - the two of them are terrific.
House/Mae - they are both stilted and not growing.
Sean/Jeanne - they are connected. John/Melisande - John
was driving the scene, and Melisande dropped the ball.
Jared/Linda - Jared overplayed to the camera and Linda
was over the top. Linda/Mae/Melisande is like
rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic. The men seem
more cut and dry - Jared or House will be gone.
Tina (who seems like this is her only role now) is there
with the next scripts, which is a watery action sequence
- but only 8 of them will see the scripts. Those 8
people are... Mark, Jeanne, Sean, Corinne, John,
Mae...and Jared and Melisande. House and Linda are
Jared knows he got away with one, while Corinne and
Jeanne cry openly that House got knocked out. The lack
of emotional range did House in, while Jared's flubbing,
which forced Linda to overplay her hand, may have gotten
her. Also what may have gotten her - the producer and
director, who apparently have their sights on Jeanne or
Corinne - which means that Mae or Melisande could be the
next to go.
Can Mae or Melisande turn it around? Can Jared get out
of his candy bubble? We'll find out next week as two
more people are chewed up and spit out like... well, you
