The season finale of "Big Brother" is upon us, and Dan, Ian and Danielle are the final three houseguests vying for the $500,000 prize.

Sunday night's episode left our trio hanging (literally) in the first part of the final Head of Household competition -- one of three contests to determine the last HOH, and the person who will decide which of their competitors to take into the final two with them to face the jury.

In our exclusive preview clip, we see that Dan is still scheming to make sure he has all his bases covered and that both of his rivals are prepared to take him into the finals with them -- but will his plotting pay off? And if it does, will his evicted cohorts award him the prize money after he stabbed so many of them in the back? We'll find out tonight.

The 90-minute "Big Brother" season finale airs Wednesday, September 19 at 9:30 p.m. ET on CBS.
