This can't be good....
Brandi, you done goofed.
Pretty sure tomorrow she's going to return to camp with friendship bracelets and Brandi's going to look like a fool.
Brandi, seriously, screw you. And screw you too, Tamara and Cordelia. Marie is innocent, I just know it. You three bitches will pay for this. Freddy, make them pay!
Dustin...just shut up; you're starting to sound kinda rude, no offense.
Cordelia and Tamara managed to spin that really well, I'm impressed.
Marie seems way too upset to be actually evil. Her arc seems to be getting interesting, so it should be good seeing where this goes.
Also, where the hell is Shaega? I know he's aiming for that INV edit but he could at least show up every now and again.
@Thorne: shaega is at the left side of panel 5, standing around. hilariously, the camera is actually panned away from him in all the other camp panels. he's just straight-up cropped out. guess he's just that boring!
@Congo: Thanks for pointing him out, I completely missed him. It's becoming hilarious to me how redundant he is, even the camera's can barely be bothered framing him.
Brandi is the worst (as in gameplay) 'gamebot' ever. She has no idea what she's doing. She's so arrogant and she's showing it in front of everyone.
"The worst thing you can do in this game is doubt my integrity!"
"All those events paint a pretty ugly picture showing your true colors!"
All Brandi *knows* is that Marie succeeded in finding an idol. All she *knows* is that Marie knows how to use a machete. I love how her first reaction is "She's EVIL!" instead of just "Wow I guess she knows how to play Survivor!"
Whether Brandi's right or not - and she is, in that Marie knows what she's doing and is a bitch - doesn't matter. The fact of the matter is that all Brandi has to go off is that Marie is playing the game, and she's vilifying her as if she's Hitler.
Come on. Tell your alliance that Marie has an Idol, not that "She's EVIL!" It makes you look immature and childish.
Something tells me that Brandi's leaving this episode. She's been reminding me a lot like Savage from Survivor Cambodia lately and it seems like she's going to get her comeuppance soon.
Brandi go to the bottomless pit and never return. sayonara motherfucker.
CPN bitch and her sidebitch is once again ruining everything. -_-
Man, honestly the CPN bitch trio downrights only wants trouble like srsly Brandi, I hope you're wrong and you get humiliated in front of the whole tribe.
Freddy, Marie, Slyvia, Dustin, and Shae should just team up and end the lives of these three bitches. and I also want to see Gekkota perform a fatality on these three. <3
I love you Billy forever and I hope you and Xera are now successful in your further evil ambitions <3
brandi thinks she's channeling phoenix wright, but... she isn't. is she getting an ottn edit? that actually sounds fun and exciting! a lot more fun than cp toneless brandi. poor marie!
hm, if brandi felt nervous about how she would be perceived after booting cha'telle, what's this "gotcha, marie" thing going to look like?
@Congo: Maybe that's what she meant at the beginning of episode 2? She's already shown herself to be 'intolerant' or whatever, so she figures she might as well go the whole nine yards now.
@coolkyledude: that would be funny. i'd like to think brandi will at least be able to take a step back and say "my god, what have i done?" at some point, even if it's when she's voted out.
Geez, people turned against Brandi really fast here. Yet it's stuff like this why I really like her. I have personally always liked the strategy bots, but Brandi is the first one to really have *Flaws*.
And it's not just the fact that she has flaws, but her flaws fit very well into the type of character she is. She works for the CSI. Figuring out who people are through their little lies and grilling them over it is her JOB. And she's obviously very proud of the type of person she is. Does this make her right for her accusations? Not particularly. But she believes she knows what she's talking about because it's what she does in her everyday life.
That being said, it was stupid not to tell the others that the deal had fell through. Like, even strategically that was dumb. That aside, I look forward to seeing Marie's true colors soon enough...
@anime9001: I agree wholeheartedly. Brandi's one of the most interesting gamebot-type characters I've seen.
What frustrates me, though, is that she KNOWS Survivor. She's made a hundred references to it so far. You can't say that she's a recruit who has no idea what she's doing. She should know better than to make a big fuss over what amounts to almost baseless accusations because in Survivor, the only court of law is Tribal Council and the law works MUCH differently there.
@coolkyledude: While you're right, she has shown that she knows people better than she knows Survivor. If she thinks you're up to something, she's going to call it out, even at her own detriment. She seems to believe that these two things go hand in hand, which they partially do and they partially don't.
Ok, what the ever-living F@%K!? Brandi, like really, for 1 this was SO STUPID of you to pick the WORST timing to COMPLETELY try & DESTROY little Marie like that. & 2, regardless of whether you do THIS or not in the CSI, no just NO, as this got you NO favors from ANYONE, especially Freddy/Marie at that!
Also, I'm as infuriated w/ Brandi bc she just, UGH...really went down the DEEP-END, from a SOLID contender at CP, to now a NUTJOB at OTTN in less than a WEEK of being there. As such, she just made herself maybe the WORST "Stratbot" we've seen YET in this series. It's all even WORSE bc she is NOT a recruit that is Clueless, but instead a Solid Applicant who should KNOW better on Survivor101 here.
For the other 2 in the so-called "Bitches Coven", while they ARE having t try ANYTHING, Tamara/Cordelia are just going TOO far here, as they are resorting to Character Assassination as WELL, ttp of having NO Morals whatsoever. While Cordelia is a LOST cause regardless, Tamara has fallen DEEPLY into this trap as well, which is REALLY depressing there, as I expected WAY better from her too.
For Princess Aqua-Marie, basically getting a TOTAL assassination in her ENTIRE character/being like that, & from BRANDI of ALL people, *groans SO much* that was Low, just WAY too low for even Survivor to allow there. Yeah yeah it's a game that NEVER cares whatsoever, but the Degree is SO horrendous, that it's BEYOUND as JARRING as ANYONE could possibly tolerate. & now, bc of this, that BITCH Brandi may have completely CRACKED this TRUELY innocent Princess now. & from her little Confessional, we are ALL likely in for a, dare I say it, GOD AWFUL TIME here until the boot for the Normals. & considering that I almost NEVER go this far in using this kind of terminology, this MUST mean that we're getting into a VERY bad situation at hand here.
All I can hope beyond ALL hope for now is that, Marie (w/ some BIG help from Freddy) can somehow fix herself, & this situation she NEVER really had any fault in, DESPITE basically trying to be low-key w/ an Idol in her possession.
@Yumichika Time: P.S. Forgot to mention this but, Brandi made another mistake as well, but a MASSIVE 1, by NEVER letting neither of the Bitches from their Cove know that the deal was off about Marie. Bc by NOT informing the WOULD-BE minority like that pair, she GAVE them ALL the ammunition they needed, to "push" both Brandi/Marie over the edge, & likely make them go into all out WAR now. So yeah, that's ANOTHER dock AGAINST the Investigator but, ugh, whatever *eyeroll*
@Yumichika Time: yaass fuck the Bitches Coven. I love their alliance name!! great insight tbh. and thats the only thing I like about them. Everything else about them I hate so much >:(
Looks like things are getting hot in here! At first I could understand Brandi's actions, but now she turning this into a witch hunt. Cant wait to see how Marie will "Show them all"!
I just felt like chiming in for one last thing. I actually don't think this is how SWSU perceived us to react to this comic. I think he expected most people to be so suspicious of Marie at this point that we'd agree with Brandi. Perhaps I'm wrong....but that's the feeling I got while reading this.
I do have a question though. If Brandi ends up being 100% right about Marie....is everyone still going to demonize her actions on this? Not trying to be sarcastic either, I'm actually curious of peoples' stances on this.
@anime9001: Personally, even IF Brandi turns out correct...I'll still feel bad about Marie. Because, basically, Bonnie brought it upon herself. In SFC9 and SFC10, she CHOSE to act the way she did and she got called out on it and punished for it. Here...even IF Marie is somewhat the same...she's really done nothing to warrant it (at least so far). Just small "hints" and minor coincidences shouldn't require you to harass and berate someone, because that's just wrong. So, Brandi is still in the wrong. Any GOOD police officer knows that you need ALL the facts before you just start accusing; you can't base your conclusion on just guesses. You need SOLID evidence.
@anime9001: Yeah. Two reasons.
One, it's bad gameplay - there's no way this ends well for Brandi, because she's the ONLY one who's suspicious of Marie. Unless Marie does something incredibly obvious in the next episode, everyone's going to turn on Brandi.
Two, Brandi doesn't have PROOF. She knows the Marie is smarter and more game-savvy that she lets on. That's not a crime! She knows that Marie knows how to use a machete. That proves literally nothing. . I'd assume that Marie actually did some preparation for the game like someone who's smart. But no, the *detective* goes straight to the assumption that Marie is evil and wants to destroy everything or something? I dunno.
All of the bad things Marie has said were all in confessionals. Unless Brandi's been listening in on confessionals she has no reason to think Marie is evil. So *IF* Marie's actually 'evil,' then Brandi is either an amazing, perceptive detective who made a really good assumption, or a Mary Sue who, despite her outbursts, still got her entire tribe against someone who's (publicly) done nothing wrong.
I'd be a lot less pissed if Brandi used the fact that she had an idol and was good at the game as reasoning to get the tribe against Marie instead of this evil bullshit.
Well, it's obvious Cordelia & Tamara benefit from the situation while Brandi most likely burned herself. No matter if Marie admitted that the others still haven't seen her real self... was that kind of direct confrontation really necessary?
Brandi shouldn't have been overwhelmed by her feelings so she better hope that her accusations are close enough to the truth. If that's not the case, it might put her into an even more akward position. I wonder if the "evidence" aka the idol is still at its place...
Whoever said Marie was a man probably was right, but more so in the sense that she's trans.
I mean it just makes sense, it's the new "thing". Every show wants to get one of those "creatures" (which is so wrong to begin with but w/e)
Actually that was.... actually good of Cordelia and Tamara to call Brandi out in the middle of camp, and just sit back and watch the fireworks. Good on them.
Still though, this was either going to happen at tribal council or when they got back from camp. Brandi is going to make a huge mistake, and Marie turns out not to be evil.
Although at the same time... Marie's confessional is odd enough. Don't become a try-hard, there, princess.
Maybe Marie is Wendy O. Koopa in disguise???
Starting to dislike Brandi. Getting way too.. Sure of her self, I guess you could say.
I think Marie is going to make a scheme to blindside Brandi.. Brandi being the forth boot would definitely be a shocker.
Also, Shaega just doesn't give a fuck about anything does he? I wonder if he would keep that same calm expression if he was being voted of..
Yas! Maria slays! But also I am making a book about your stuff! Only for fun, not really making a business... but it is really cool! I love your work!
