The Shaman has finally been exorcised, leaving us with our Final Two.

Shaega was a character I worked hard on this season, and I'm happy with how he came out. During the initial stages of the game, there wasn't much to be said about him. The early episodes were all about setting his character into stone. A character with a stoic face. No Expression, No Emotion, Just Empty. I was not surprised in the least when people called him useless. Since I needed to build up his original self.

Once it was time to start evolving him, he started being a blast to write, adding his subtle manipulations in the game before he was officially revealed and having his odd moments which alerted some players, but not enough to truly harm him game. However once the merge hit and he began moving to the front and center. He was just out there to try out all of these new sensations, feelings and abilities he never had before and trying out the power that he'd never been able to use before. I heard claims that he was a shitty villain because he failed alot... and that was kind of the point. He wasn't out there to be a diabolical mastermind. He was just trying out his new powers on whoever, and trying to push things to their extremes, and most of the time.... This was not good for his game, but really at that time he didn't care.

I don't think Shaega is an overwhelmingly bad guy and a pure villain, he just got carried away with his power, and if he does come back later once he's more mature, things might be different. But in the end, his fate was decided in a twist that, I'm not sure I'd like in the real Survivor, but since Shaega had been a dick for a good portion of the endgame, having the rug pulled out by his partner and facing the sting of betrayal that he'd never faced before was something that needed to happen. Overall, as a competent villain, not so great. As a character. I approve.

Well. Congratulations, Dustin, you just lost yourself the game. And congrats to all the dumbasses who were actually rooting for him. Seriously, those who were jumping onto Dustin's bandwagon...you people need help. Fast. Even right now...if you REALLY think Dustin STILL deserves to win over Taro, or thinks he CAN win...please seek professional medical help. Please? Thank you.

Now that what needed to be said WAS said...let me just say the most important thing of all: OWNED, SHAEGA, YOU BASTARD! GET OUT! And props to the jury for helping "aid" Taro in tricking moronic Dustin into making the worst decision in the entire game. Take Shaega and you win the game. Take Taro...you're likely not getting a single vote to win. Wow. I mean...what can you say? That's one of the most pathetic, yet hilariously awful tribal council decisions...or whatever you can call it...EVER! Just glorious.

Shaega was terrible. Stop trying to defend him and say that he was funny, because he wasn't. There's nothing funny about taking control of someone's emotions and making them feel scared they're going to be kidnapped (Marie). There's nothing funny about him bullying someone into breaking down into something they hate being (Ky). There's nothing funny about him messing with others' minds to make stupid decisions NOT out of strategy, but just out of hilarious fun (Daisuke, Brandi, Gekkota, Zach). It was just disturbing, uncomfortable, annoying, and downright RIDICULOUS. You all thought Cordelia and Brandi got away with a lot of shit they shouldn't? Well, so did Shaega. He was literally one win away from making the final 2 and maybe...MAYBE having a shot to win, depending on who would give Dustin votes or not. He could've won this game being a bully, an asshole, a sleazebag, and pretty much a monster. That is NOT. FUNNY. Please, for the love of God, do NOT bring this asshole back. I'd almost prefer Desmond over him, and that's saying a lot, since Desmond was a scumbag, too.

I never cared for Shaega. From the start of the game, even without emotions...he was an asshole. With emotions...he was an asshole. He NEVER CHANGED. I don't care if you don't like the show, I'm going to reference it. In My Little Pony, there's a great emotionless character who NEVER shows emotion named Maud Pie. But, she's a LOT more fleshed out and amazing, because even throughout her emotionless facade, she has a heart of gold underneath, and you can honestly relate to her and understand her. With Shaega...he was just always a dick. He never cared about anything other than himself. He played with others like they were marionettes on strings, laughed at their misery, and was a dick for the sake of being a dick. There's no entertainment there. It's just...unpleasantness. Someone you WANT to see get punished and NOT succeed, because they don't see the bigger picture. They're just there to hurt, and that's not fun. I'm sorry, it's just not.

FINALE RANKINGS:
1. Ky (Perfect)
2. Taro (Perfect)
3. Marie (Adore)
4. Daisuke (Love)
5. Zach (Love)
6. Xeradonus (Love)
7. Freddy (Love)
8. Billy (Love)
9. Brandi (Love)
10. Lea (Neutral)

16. Sylvia (Hate)
17. Gekkota (Hate)
18. Cha'Telle (Loathe)
19. Shaega (Loathe)
20. Cordelia (Loathe)

EXPLANATIONS:

PERFECT - Bring it home, Taro. You've earned it. The crybabies about the food poisoning bullshit will still be there to root against you, but...they're just jealous and hypocritical fools, because we've ALL done things we aren't proud of while trying to get ahead. We're ALL guilty of something. Who cares? You play to win the game, not play for integrity or morals. I will always stand by the fact that I would want to win and be hated, over lose and be loved. ANY day. Give me my damn win, because after that...who cares? I won, so hate me all you want. Taro, you can do this. I'm expecting a 9-0 perfect game victory for you, but...you never know. One or two moronic jurors might screw it up. I hope not, though.

HATE - Dustin...look, at the end of the day, I can tell you've got a good heart. You're a nice guy. But...just stay out of Survivor. You're not Fabio. You're not Keith. You're not Tai. You're not anyone worthy of being beloved. You're TOO stupid. You're TOO grating. You're TOO unbearably moronic and ridiculously dumb. You tried, but the social game and the challenge wins aren't enough, buddy. You have to show SOMETHING in the head. Just a LITTLE something. Lola did. Ker did. Cherman did. Jackie did. At some point, you can't just expect to win because you're a good guy at heart and you win a ton of challenges. It doesn't work like that. We all make mistakes, sure, but when you start making them again and again and again AND AGAIN...and you piss people off who are also trying to win the game...it's just a really, REALLY bad look. It's not endearing or funny. It's funny when Ky, Gatemaster, Damon, or other characters like that do it. It's not funny when it's just a constant theme the entire way through. You lost. Outside of the game, I'm sure you're a great guy, just like Geoff (Total Drama), but you're not made for the game. Please do not come back, either. I'm not sure if it was your creator's intention to make you THIS ridiculously stupid, but...I can only imagine so, or otherwise SWSU would never go this far. So...hey, Dustin's creator? Congrats. Your character is the biggest idiot to ever play the game. He's getting 2nd place, in all likelihood. Not bad. He accomplished his mission. Hope you're happy.

@Tailslover13: Shaega may be a complete asshole, but the more I think about it, that was basically his whole purpose, so you cant get too mad about that I suppose. And yes, Dustin was to stupid for it to be funny. The guy made Brenton look like freaking Vinnie.

Reply Tailslover13, June 18th, 2016, 10:26 pm

@DrMarble: Well, you and others are free to just toss aside all the bullshit he did and forgive him, but I'm not so forgiving. Just like in real life. After all the stuff I did in SFC11...there are still people who refuse to forgive me. So, why should I feel any different? Take the high road? Nope. Shaega is still a dick, and all his torture isn't to be forgiven. At least not from me.

Dustin was funny for pretty much the whole pre-merge. If he was the first juror, I think that would've worked perfectly. Stop him before he started to try and get strategic and just get more and more unfunny and stupid. He really should've been the first juror.

Reply Tailslover13, June 18th, 2016, 10:42 pm

@DryIceBros: The food poisoning, honestly. It was the backbone I WANTED to see from him to make him perfect. The revenge and anger I HOPED to see him do once Ky was voted out. Him not wanting to give up and not going down without a fight, and doing WHATEVER it took to survive. Plus, he did it to three people I personally did not like, and I felt deserved it.

Reply DryIceBros, June 18th, 2016, 10:45 pm

@Tailslover13: Oh yeah... I was expecting that moment for a while (I also suspected it would be from Ky's elimination), and while I was kinda hoping it would last a little longer, I like it the way it is. Taro proved he wasn't just a sushi chef letting everyone take each other out while letting Ky stay a little longer.

Reply dat4yc, June 18th, 2016, 10:07 pm

YES! PERFECT!

Gotta say I was soooo nervous that he was gonna get rid of Taro, but I knew deep down that Dustin wasn't gonna be smart enough to recognize Taro as a bigger threat than Shaega.

Shaega... is the best character this season. I still LIKE Ky more, but in terms of character he was the most fully developed and interesting. I'm glad in the end he finally realized what he was doing and how horrible it was because he experienced it himself. That doesn't redeem him for his actions in the game, but it definitely is a step in the right direction for him. Going forward, he won't be the asshole he was in the game (at least I hope not lol) and I really hope we get to see the new him sometime in the future.

Alright, pretty sure Taro has this in the bag, but we still have a few comics to go!

Reply anime9001, June 18th, 2016, 10:15 pm

Aw well. It's the final two I've been expecting. It was obvious Taro was winning regardless, but at least Sheaga would have made the Jury questions interesting. Oh well.

To be honest, I think Sheaga may have been the best written character of the season. And that's in a season with a plethora of well written characters. Typically, every villain written in this series is either complete fail or completely god-like until their inevitable demise. It made me appreciate the semi-competence Sheaga brought to the table. However, I will say, if Sheaga wanted to experience all he could, perhaps he should have tested out the more positive spectrum of emotions as well as the negative. Or maybe not. Like I said, I was very impressed with his character already, so maybe that wouldn't have added anything.

Reply DryIceBros, June 18th, 2016, 10:33 pm

@anime9001: You could argue that he experienced the negatives one first, so he was caught up by those and less interested in the positive ones at the moment.

Anyways, as for Shaega, I couldnt stand him for most of the season. But now that I look back, im honestly not so sure why he infuriated me so much. Maybe i'll warm up to him on a second read and appreciate the kind of character he is supposed to be.

Reply DryIceBros, June 18th, 2016, 10:19 pm

@DrMarble: Sometimes you feel different about something while you're experiencing it for the first time, but looking back, you may like it better or worse than in the moment... Either that, or I'm trying too hard to be philosophical.

Reply GaryHawkinsLandscaper, June 18th, 2016, 10:17 pm

Shaming King As someone who favors character quality over my own opinions of said characters, I will say that Shaega was one of my favorite characters this season. He went from being an emotionless waste of space to an evil waste of space. However, like Brandi, I can't forgive him for most of the things he did. But on the bright side, maybe he will indeed mature if he comes back again. If everyone else lets him come back.

Sucky villain Shae is best Shae.

Taro's got a commanding lead over Dustin on Jury Votes. Ky, Marie, Leah, maybe even Sylvia... It might even be unanimous. I mean... Dustin's an idiot. His only saving grace is that he's good at challenges. Taro may not have made earth-shaking moves or the like, but you only need so much effort to tip the scales into your favor.

Makes sense that Shaega gets booted right before the FTC. Personally it always irked that during many seasons of survivor that after an abysmal performance (not just being bad at the game, but also just having a bad personality) during the entire game, the finalist goats are given $100,000 just for making to the end, so it's nice to see that Shaega doesn't get that even if he seemed to lighten during the end. All in all, Shaega was a blast to watch throughout the season.

And now the wait for the finale begins, but not to see if Taro wins (which he pretty much does at this point), instead we wait to see if Dustin will get even a single and how he handles a jury.

@Sonofhades: Eh I think it will be more among the lines of heavy disappointment instead fiery rage, since it's not like Dustin had any malicious intent. There will be some stern words for Dustin from his allies, but I feel like the jury is going want to learn more about Taro's game since he was pretty much playing from behind-the-scenes.

Unless it's suddenly revealed in a epic twist that Dustin is the second coming of Tapioca (I just can't believe that he's THAT dumb even after this entire season and if so then the jury's reaction is completely up in the air.

Dustin is Woo confirmed

I've gone into detail about why I love Shaega so much before, and I still believe it. He was not the most affective villain, and as we found out in the authors notes, he wasn't supposed to be. He was trying to test out his newly granted powers and emotions to their limits. Out of all the villains in the comics history, I think Shaega might be my favorite, tied with Vinnie. Still I think this was a good way to take him, out, with him being screwed over by his "bro" and finally realizing that maybe being a total asshole isn't a good idea

But yeah, they might as well just give Taro the million dollars already. There is no way in hell that Dustin is getting more than three votes. Not that I am complaining about it.

He he he. Dustin's just confirmed two things. One is that Taro is going to win. Two is that he's the Woo of this season. And to think last episode that he said "Who needs brains to win Survivor?" Possibly the dumbest Survivor in SFC history. He's going to get reamed by the Jury. As for Shaega, good riddance. He was a good character and an effective one. Good character arc. Shame that arc involved him torturing innocents for days on end.

Brandi - Dustin (Probably wants a Normal to win?)
Leah - Taro (Doesn't like Dustin.)
Ky - Taro (If he doesn't vote for Taro, then this is not the same Ky we've known for days.)
Sylvia - Taro (Fed her for 38 days, and kept his word over Dustin.)
Shaega - Taro (Will not respect Dustin's decision to vote him off.)

Taro being SFC's first LGBT winner will be fresh to be completely honest. I mean, I'm pretty sure all the Richard Hatch comparisons were there from the beginning... just without the manipulation.

@TJBambi93: HEY THAT'S MY JOB..

I was going to wait for the jury questions comic, gives me a little more info. I'd like to see how the FTC goes down before making predictions.

Honestly, this was almost EXACTLY what some of us expected to see ironically, where Dustin was THE ONE to make BOTH of his BIGGEST Allies/friends, get eliminated. & to think it was ALL bc he ALLOWED himself to get Tricked THAT easily TOO often. & for that, he made this FTC LITERALLY Cagayan ALL over again, w/ a NEAR-TOTAL Perfect Victory/Game achieved for the Winner, that is Taro. But overall as a whole, Dustin is LIKELY a good Dude at heart in general, but CLEARLY beyond hopeless for this KIND of game (since he skills are MAINLY to stay for surfing, not MUCH of anything else, as the game PROVE it too).

For Shaega, I'll be honest. I started Indifferent, then actually got INTERESTED, to Finally getting IRRITATED=HATEFUL of him even. So throughout my stages I went through w/ him, I think he did EXACTLY what he was MAde for ite;
Broken Emo = Psychotic Nutjob = Malicious Villain

As such, now that I think about him overall, since he was FINALLY starting to Recognize that just MAYBE he should NOT be such a DICK as often like he was for this merge (even though it did NOT help really gamewise). & now Couple that w/ him TRUELY experiencing the PAIN of Betrayal, this will HAVE to force him see what has been doing to others, & face the music at LAST about it to. whether this is even a Serious note or not (bc I kinda think he's NOT otherwise after ALL this development he achieved for his ENTIRE Arc), if he EVER has to be back, then he BETTER be the Opposite as MOSTLY positive, bc otherwise, he will NEVER last again. Period.

Now for the REAL FTC to begin VERY soon, it's a DONE DEAL that Taro Won this game now. But the question is, will it be a TRUE Perfect game indeed, since Taro NEVER got a vote Against him, or is someone actually WILLING to give Dustin ANY little hope to Credit him a VOTE or 2 of Sympathy even? Find out in the NEXT few Comics/Days, on the FINALE of, SFC15: Normals Vs Supers!

PS. Now then, for the LAST time, who wants to place their Bets on Dustin Getting ANY single vote? & if so, is the ANYONE willing to DOUBLE/TRIPLE it, depending on getting a 2nd/even 3rd Vote overall in this FTC? Come on now you Gamblers, for I KNOW you have to GOOD-ASS extras to help fund this little Project/Game in my Casino indeed!! ^D^

Hey, this really ended like the last SFC7 TribalCouncil but I didn't expect Dustin to be the one deciding that way. I wonder why he actually voted against Shaega when he could have easily done that last time. I'm still glad he did it.

Shaega definitely doesn't leave as a favourite of mine. His questionable votes before and his villain motivations after getting paranoia prevented me from rooting for him during the season. However, I know as well that he couldn't have fought the second problem at once anyway. Besides his late realisation I hope he leaves the island without intending to hurt someone again.

I really wonder how the questioning will go. We have a rather naive but powerful surfer and we have a sushi chef who was never voted against and who pulled the strings almost the whole time. That's what we have seen but what did the jury see...?

Thinking more about it, I think this is how the season could've been improved down the stretch:

8th - Dustin (Instead of Brandi wasting her idol on Dustin and overthinking things, she saves it and Dustin leaves instead, freeing up Sylvia at long last to actually having Brandi as her rival, and having to resort to relying on Shaega instead of Dustin)

7th - Marie (HERE is here Brandi needs to use the idol to take out Marie, just one spot later. As much as I love her, Marie just had no story purpose past this point, but Dustin needed to leave before her. Brandi just misplayed her idol on the wrong person)

6th - Leah (I'm...not entirely sure HOW this would work, since Sylvia/Brandi/Shaega is a lot less functional than Sylvia/Dustin/Shaega would be, but...one way or another, she still leaves here, since she's irrelevant and has no purpose being this high anyway)

5th - Taro (He sacrifices himself for Ky, preventing any food poisoning from going on, and giving us a conflict of Sylvia/Brandi and Shaega/Ky in the final 4, not to mention Ky at a 3-1 disadvantage to work out of without any dirty tricks)

4th - Brandi (THIS is where Brandi needed to leave, and ironically still in a 2-1-1 vote. Ky would win immunity, and Brandi wants to target Sylvia for being the bigger threat, while Ky wants Shaega out. Sylvia and Shaega both vote out Brandi together. This caps off Sylvia's rivalry with Brandi PROPERLY, and makes Brandi leave in a much better place so we had some more drama by this point)

3rd - Shaega (Once again, Ky wins final immunity, and he takes out Shaega, avenging Taro through actual game-play rather than dirty tricks, and setting up a good final 2 of Sylvia vs. Ky, one female Normal and one male Super, which honestly would be a very intriguing vote)

THIS is how it really should've worked, if you want my personal opinion. Taro needed to leave instead of Ky, and we needed Brandi instead of Dustin in the final 5 for more actual drama that didn't just center around Taro poisoning people, Shaega being Shaega, and Dustin being tricked a million times.

@Tailslover13: The only way Taro sacrifices himself is if he actually quits the game. Nobody would listen to his wishes, especially not the crowd left. Ky would still go home despite his wishes unless he quit. I don't really think Taro would quit the game for Ky honestly. He obviously cared about him, but he had his own game to play. It's just that if he couldn't win, Ky would be his next best choice.

@Guest: It still makes the most sense, so one way or another, it had to happen. It was just written incorrectly. It could've happened.

PWNT!

I think Shaega might have been a little too hated. But he did turn Brandi into.. Well.. Brandi. So he loses a lot of points for that.

Dustin pulled the Colby Donaldson. Fucking idiot. HOW CAN YOU REALLY FUCKING THINK THAT SHAEGA WOULD BEAT YOU?! The Jury was obviously full of shit there. (But I guess Zach really did get to take out Shae. Cool.) But this means that Taro wins. Which is awesome. He'd be my favorite winner by far. Sorry Cherman

LOL thanks Dustin. I was worried for a bit after Taro lost the challenge, but then I realized there was still a moron left in it that would be very likely to throw away his game to someone like Taro that played better than him in every possible way. This is very similar to how Woo took Tony to the end, except there I was still hoping for Woo to somehow win since I loved him and he was one of my fav players in survivor history, Dustin.... not so much.
