Fan Characters will be competing for $1,000,000.
With everyone cured, who will be going home, Shaega or Sylvia?
THERE, you idiot commentators, are you happy now? Taro not only apologized and owned up to it, but he healed them all to make them better. Get off your freaking high horses and stop your pathetic self-righteous attitude bullshit. IT WAS FOR THE GAME AND TO SURVIVE! LEAVE. TARO. ALONE! So many of you piss me the hell off.
And...again, don't care who leaves. Any of them leaving will be glorious and make me very, very happy. Hate them all.
@Tailslover13: True. Can't disagree with that. I still don't love Taro as much as some others who are still in but w/e. But would Shaega cheating Ky out of immunity and then giving him the necklace right before the vote have redeemed him in your eyes? Just curious.
I disagree about being happy no matter who leaves but that doesn't matter. Glad you're happy :) That's a net positive, right?
@coolkyledude: Not really. Shaega has done so much to mess with others that nothing he does redeems himself.
Well, when you hate everyone left over than Taro, like I do, of course I'm going to be happy. No matter who leaves tomorrow, I'm going to laugh my head off and mock a select group of people that wanted Sylvia, Dustin or Shaega to win...and it's going to feel glorious.
@Tailslover13: I would say that sounds mean, but I should be the last person to talk about shaming people XP
@ChronoAlone: It's the internet. Nobody online is 100% innocent. Leave your shame and dignity before you turn on your monitor or pick up your stupid phone or whatever. Say how you feel and have no regrets. Who cares? I just like to be happy.
@Tailslover13: You do that then, fam.
I'm just glad Dustin is safe, honestly <3
I guess I'd prefer Sylvia to leave, but I'm okay with either.
Someone's face is getting punched, I'm predicting that much.
Honestly, I'd much rather see Sylvia leave, but Shae leaving seems appropriate here. There's not much else he can do at this point other than just brood around the camp.
And Taro apologized, so that's good.
I'm thinking whoever Dustin decides is who Taro's going to vote for too. It could be either of them, really.
Here we go. SO excited to see how this vote turns out. Really hoping Sylvia is sent home because it seems that she is the only one that is significant competition to Taro. But, in the end, I'm just glad Taro's safe.
Also, I think it's pretty amazing that Taro managed to both shift the focus off of him about the food poisoning and make it so whatever happens tonight, someone is gonna be pissed off at Dustin.
Hoping for Sheaga elimination.
Expecting Sylvia elimination.
Taro might even vote Dustin so she leaves 2-1-1. Either that or Sheaga's just gonna ghost up a fire in the tie-breaker...
@anime9001: Dustin being in control of tonight' vote is just what Taro wanted. I find the situation hilarious. He's pissing someone off tomorrow.
@Guest: Actually I'm willing to bet that you're completely right about that. Taro's been pretty good at manipulating situations to his liking, so I gotta give him props for that.
@coolkyledude: I mean he's been pulling it off casually all season. I think the cause of this are:
1. Taro's really good at it.
2. To a lesser extent, many of the characters this season aren't really too intelligent (whether that be strategically or emotionally). Zach however is one example of the contrary, who was aware of how Taro operates, but was never looking to go against Taro.
I'm not really sure which of the three is going home. I am leaning towards Sylvia because it seems to me that Shaega and Dustin still have a little more story to go through.
@Misterjakester : Like what? Dustin is more than likely pissing someone off tomorrow. The only one left with any chance of beating Taro in a hypothetical finals is Sylvia. Say she leaves, and there's a twist Final Two: Dustin/Shaega is more unpredictable, but, Taro is probably the preferred winner overall. Regardless if it's a F3 or F2, if Taro makes it there, he's more than likely winning (especially if Sylvia isn't there).
Taro votes for one, Dustin the other and Both Shaega and Sylvia vote Dustin.
I can't tell what Taro's expression is in the last panel. Is he happy or annoyed with Dustin's decision?
Alrighty, so this is the other really big season that everyone loves. If I didn't decide to be an idiot and jump around seasons my first time reading, I would've been shocked at how much of a contrast this season is compared to the ones that came before it. It's dark, it's evil, it has the most satisfying downfall in SFC history, and I'll admit, this season's a little hard to watch at certain points. But that just makes this season so much better. Who doesn't love cringing? ...Just me? Okay then.
While I think that Season 9 is, for the most part, a bit overshadowed by Bonnie, we still had a good amount of creative characters. Okay, a lot of them aren't very smart, but as I said in my last review, I'm fine with dumb characters if they entertain me. This cast is similar to that of a horror movie, in that while they're part of the reason why the villain was so successful, I still took their side. And I hate horror movies, so that's saying something.
That ending was better than I thought it was going to be. Cherman caught "Prescilla" confessing to everything at the worst possible time, and was able to report of his findings in front of the jury, leading to a never-ending string of hate speeches. I don't usually support winners who only pulled one real big strategic move, but in the case of Cherman, his win was well-earned.
No more waiting; it's time to talk about the devil spawn herself, Bonnie Quinn. Now, what's the best way to describe her in as few words as possible? Imagine Slim Shady as a chick. Okay, maybe that's a little extreme, since to be fair, I don't think Bonnie would actually kill anyone. While I usually hate mean-spirited stories, Bonnie is such a horrible human being that you have no choice but to keep watching, just so you can see how hard she falls at the end. It worked so well, but sadly, it only works once. I'm not at all surprised by the fact that she hasn't come back for another season.
...Except she *did* come back for another season. Why.
* Something I want to address that only a few people seemed to notice. This season's Jury Speech comic was uploaded the same day Colton's medevac episode aired. That could not have been timed more perfectly.
@GaryHawkinsLandscaper: Taro's happy. I couldn't tell at first either.
@ChronoAlone: I'm pretty sure his default expression is 'mildly pleased' and I don't think it's deviated much from that since the very beginning :P
@GaryHawkinsLandscaper: Ah, season 9. Bonnie's only good season. A fantastic twist, real emotional investment, and a fantastic winner. I love that Cherman sucked at pretty much everything... except winning the game.
Wow what a shock. Taro still being a douche.
Pretty sure Sylvia's number is up, but it could be anyone.
I am so excited about the second tribal, because Taro is going to get voted off!!!!!!!
@Guesty: Taro isn't leaving. He's winning the season. If you really think Dustin or Shaega is being given a win after all the shit they've done...I think I should call you a doctor.
It's probably time for your yearly checkup anyway. We all need one once a year, after all.
@Tailslover13: I think its going to be the battle of the goats, and its going to the funniest wtf moment ever.
@Guesty: We had that in SFC12, basically with Lola vs. Spongebob since Shelby was never a part of the equation. I really don't think we're getting Dustin vs. Shaega...just not happening.
@Tailslover13: Not to mention, of course, that Lola and Spongebob were light-years more entertaining than Dustin and Shaega combined could ever hope to be.
@landis963: And insanely more likable, too. At least for me.
@Tailslover13: Well that was my rough summary of what I think the FTC, I think the FTC will be two of the WORST players this season sitting in the end, and the jury has to pick out which one deserves it more. The F3 in 12 all had positives to their games, so that is why I think it is different here.
PLEASE let Shaega leave already. However, I'm pretty sure it's going to be Sylvia leaving. If she goes, Taro has this game in the bag, because Dustin and Shaega sure as hell aint winning this game.
Also, I only just noticed this, but I think Taro's sprite is a heavily modified version of Deigo's sprite.
:) Can't wait until one of those two leaves. With Shaega being evil and chaotic and Sylvia being slightly entertaining but tiring by now as well as Taro's biggest threat seeing one of them gone will bring me some joy in a time when I'm needing it.
So, Shaega vs Sylvia. Considering Dustin's intelligence is comparable to seaweed left out in the sun too long, it's not a bad idea to take him to the finals, but a worse one to put your trust in him.
While I would hope Shaega would be eliminated, I think it WILL go down to a tie. Sylvia and Shaega will duke it out... but considering Shaega's strenuous effort to win Immunity before, he might be too tired to make use of his shaman-powers.
Also, Dustin will be punched in the face. Because casual violence is funny, right?
There we go! I'm glad Taro apologized. I would still have admired him even if he didn't, but it's nice to know he doesn't bear an excess of ill will towards these jackasses. This Tribal is going to be interesting. Who does Taro want to go with him? Shaega, who's tormented literally every person in the game since he got his powers? Or Sylvia, a moron with absolutely no social skills or ability to back down? This is actually a difficult pick. It's like having to pick between Russell Hantz and Twila Tanner.
"Shaega's like a mastermind..." Shouldn't that be reason enough to vote Shaega? It was pretty much inevitable that Dustin is torn between but suggesting a tiebreaker? *facepalm* As a friend, he should totally know that Sylvia can hardly beat Shaega and paranoia without cheating herself. There's nothing fair about it. Unless Dustin ends this with a Shaega vote, Sylvia is gone. We better don't get to see that...
Everyone's talking about Dustin being the swing vote. Why don't Sylvia and Shaega team up and take out Dustin?
@landis963: Because Dustin is the biggest goat at this point...even over Shaega. Why do you think Brandi wanted to take him to the end? Say all you want how "likable" he is, but he isn't winning ANYTHING, even over Shaega. If you've paid attention to the jury, you'd see how they've been slightly more impressed with Shaega over Dustin. So, that's why; you don't take out the goat.
@Tailslover13: >he isn't winning ANYTHING
except most immunity challenges, even over the Supers
@uhbihbjnk: I could ask you the same question. I find YOU to be annoying and self-righteous. I don't even care what you do; it's when you start attacking, bullying, and harassing ME that pisses me off. Like putting a mocking avatar of something you know I hate, or always yelling at me to act in the way YOU want me to act, or saying something completely stupid or ridiculous that is simply wrong or illogical. Seriously, how about you take a little of your own advice and shut up?
I'm not FULL of hatred and anger, either. I just tell things like it is. Final Fantasy VII I can sing nothing but praises about. The new Goosebumps movie brought up so many childhood memories and made me happy. I love kitty cats. I enjoy eating a nice, hot pizza and drinking some cold mountain dew. There are PLENTY of things that I love that make me happy and I'm always positive towards. Who the hell do you think you are by telling me I can't be negative towards things that genuinely irritate me? You know, if you love your precious Shaega so much, why don't you listen to him and how he bullied Ky and made him angry? Anger IS a damn emotion you know, you moron! It's not a bad thing to show it when you want. It's not like I'm doing what that psycho Orlando gunman did, or anything like that. Jesus Christ, I enjoy calling out bullshit or mocking things that amuse me in a freaking comic. WHO THE HELL CARES? LEAVE ME ALONE! IF YOU DON'T LIKE WHAT I SAY, THEN IGNORE ME! TAKE YOUR OWN ADVICE AND IGNORE ME!
My GOD you piss me the hell off. I'm here TRYING to have fun in my own way. Did you ever stop to think that me being pissed at these comics is me actually being happy and having fun? Don't you think The Nostalgia Critic, The Angry Video Game Nerd, A Dose Of Buckley, and many other people online who enjoy being angry and use it for their job are actually nice and happy people? Seriously, I'm being happy the way I am. If you actually met me in real life, you might actually like me. Maybe, maybe not. Just because I act a certain way online doesn't mean that's who I am in real life.
If I go attacking YOU or others on your/their comments, that's one thing. If that's the case, I'm pretty much allowing you guys to attack me back. But, if I'm just being me...and you want to engage me...do so by trying to argue against it or asking me WHY I feel a certain way. Don't just yell at me and demand I be nice, or tell me to stop, or tell me to leave, or say that I'm delusional/irrational, because that's just annoying.
There, happy? Now leave me alone already.
Dustin F-U-C-K-I-N-G sucks. I hate everything about him. He can go die. The fact that he is now in this bullshit power position makes me barf. Fuck you blonde piece of shit.
Can we just have Sylvia and Shaega both go home because for one Shaega will be cheating and Sylvia will lose so.. I think that's fair then we crown Taro as the great well deserved winner of this season. Oh and unanimous.
Middle fingers to Dustin, Sylvia and Shaega.
Dustin I really hate you. I loathe you. I loathe you and Shayga. You guys are the worst. Fuck you.
Friend.. Or other friend who he probably wants the have sex with but can't because she's not interested..
I think he'll take out Sylvia in an epic betrayal, because plot, only to get booted shortly thereafter when Taro wins the FIC and votes him off. And takes Shae to the end.
But why am I giving you important details.. I should just give you.. VOTE PREDICTIONS!!
3-1. Bye Sylvia you dumb bitch. Won't miss you for that short time period you're gone.
Lighting round challenge at TC, Taro wins again, so have another VOTE PREDICTION!!
1-0, the dumbass finally leaves. Shaega and Taro are the final 2. It should be easy to figure who wins if that happens.
When do you guys think I should do the FTC vote prediction? Right before they go to FTC, The jury questioning comic, or the comic right before the votes are revealed?
@Blastoise_FTW: I think either would work.
@ChronoAlone: I think i'm going with the Jury questioning comic. That's right before they vote.
@Blastoise_FTW: Sounds good =)
@Blastoise_FTW: I honestly believe the Final 2 is going to be Dustin/Taro based on all the random scenes the two of them have been getting.
