Who will be going home? Brandi, Lake or Vinnie?

This was extremely uncomfortable. And...I just feel bad for everybody involved. Literally EVERYBODY here I feel bad for in some way:

Damon: He's not even a father (at least as far as I know), and even if he's being preachy and self-righteous, he's saying the right things. And it really is sweet.
Riley: Continually targeted just for having a werewolf side that is...well, violent. It's wrong.
Brandi: Basically not doing anything wrong and trying her best, and pretty much everyone agreeing to it.
Vinnie: Having a pathetic excuse for a daughter and basically having no choice but to stand up for her by fucking with Lewis and Brandi.
Bowser Jr.: Eh, he's fine.
Lewis: A small part of me feels bad for him, even if he deserves this and everything said about him was true. I just...I still feel bad. I just do.

Lewis is leaving tomorrow, not Brandi. If it really is a tie, he'll likely just throw the challenge and let Brandi beat him, so...he's gone. Vinnie gets his "wish", but not in the way he wanted. Brandi survives and makes the merge. Everyone wins.

@Tailslover13: I think Lake is meant to be a tragic character. Someone you know deserves what he gets, but you can't help but feel sorry for him because you KNOW he knows he fucked up.

Definitely a good final pre merge boot for this season.

Reply Tailslover13, June 2nd, 2017, 6:28 am

@Guest: Yeah, if it really is him, I agree. This likely means he doesn't make the jury, either, since typically pre-merge contestants don't make the jury, but maybe that's for the best. Everyone left, other than Lewis, has earned a jury spot. Even useless Sierra and asshole Angelo.

Reply Guest, June 2nd, 2017, 7:56 am

@Tailslover13: Interestingly and speaking of which, Artemis was the last pre merge boot that sat on the jury. Although I think that was only because of the stupid double boot idol.

Still, Arty got lucky in that sense to be pre merge, but a juror regardless. ^^

@Guest: Ugh you just reminded me of the million gazillion Idols on that season and how much it hurt my head.

Reply Tailslover13, June 2nd, 2017, 6:24 pm

@Guest: I honestly was TRYING to not remember or bring that up...since, yes, I remember that as well...but, she had to be anyway. It was a final 3 and a jury of 7, so really SWSU wrote himself into a corner. I got 'lucky' in that regard, I guess.

Reply ChronoAlone, June 1st, 2017, 10:01 pm

Damon is the man, sticking up for Brandi like that. It's about time someone drilled that into Lake's head.

That being said though...I wonder if, in the case of a tie-breaker, Lake would actually throw the challenge to keep Brandi in the game. It would certainly redeem him a little bit, but not by much. Well...we'll see tomorrow.

Reply DryIceBros, June 1st, 2017, 10:04 pm

Isn't the tiebreaker just Purple Rocks? I'm getting the feeling Lake has no plans on tying the vote up, instead he'll vote Vinnie, Riley, or anyone other than Brandi so that he can sacrifice himself for her sake. Much simpler that way anyways.

Reply rac567 (Guest), June 1st, 2017, 10:06 pm

Aww it's nice Lake realize how much of a butt he has been and wants to make peace with Brandi. Too bad one of them will get eliminated tomorrow unless they can turn the tables on Vinnie.

Reply rac567 (Guest), June 1st, 2017, 10:10 pm

Uh oh looks like Vinnie is getting over confident. Telling your target that you are eliminating him or her openly rarely ends well although it does look like there is nothing Brandi and Lake can do to change the vote.

P.S.: Damon's speech was so awesome!!! Lake had that coming for a long time.

Reply Misterjakester (Guest), June 1st, 2017, 10:11 pm

Thank you Damon for saying what I have wanted to say for a long time. This comic alone probably brought him to my top 5 this season. A "the reason you suck" speech has never been more deserving
Lake will probably throw the tie breaker to let Brandi stay, if only to get the last laugh at Vinnie

Reply Sinjoh, June 1st, 2017, 10:18 pm

Cue Lake or Brandi returning because "You voted out your daughter/father".

Reply GaryHawkinsLandscaper, June 1st, 2017, 10:23 pm

That sound you heard? The sound vaguely resembling a small gerbil making sounds into a metal fan? That was me giggling during Damon's speech.

It appears that Lewis Lake is not as indefensible as I thought he was. I doubt him simply throwing the fire-making challenge is going to fully redeem him, but hey, I'll take this. It's progress.

And can we go back to the fun Vinnie? I swear to god, he's going to turn into Frankie Grande any minute.

Reply Guest, June 2nd, 2017, 6:16 am

@GaryHawkinsLandscaper: This is the cocky Vinnie we all know and remember from Season 2.

Reply Guest, June 1st, 2017, 10:24 pm

Lake throws his vote so he goes instead of Brandi. Calling it

Reply Floorman (Guest), June 1st, 2017, 10:29 pm

You tell him Damon! Yeah!

So...Who wants to bet that Lake has no intention of voting for his daughter. I think he's going to get Brandi to vote for him, and then he's gonna throw a vote to Vinnie or someone...And then he's gonna go home.

Reply anime9001, June 1st, 2017, 10:29 pm

Wow. The person to finally set Damon off into a 3 panel rant about how bad of a person they are was not Iyzebel. Thought that bubble was never gonna pop.... Not like he's wrong though. And while Lake doesn't seem the most appreciative of what he's saying, at least he seems to have listened.

On that note, as I've been saying, Brandi's not going home yet. And while Lake is claiming that they're going to go for a tiebreaker.....that's not even possible, right? Whether they vote for each other or not Vinnie would simply get to decide who's leaving in the re-vote. Lake's lying to Brandi to get her to vote him out, in one....mostly self-redeeming move.

Congrats Lake. You may have played a TERRIBLE game. But at least your departure will be your high note.....

Reply RedBeryl, June 1st, 2017, 10:44 pm

So instead of scrambling (which is completely useless, of course) Lake decides to let the vote go 3-3 instead.

Of course, as pointed out in the comments already, Lake or Brandi could throw their vote at Vinnie in the hopes their daughter/father survives. Odds are Lake pulls this off instead, and finally does something for his daughter.

BUT... what if Brandi ALSO does the same thing? There's probably gonna be a lot of talking at Tribal Council, and when the votes are being read, the father/daughter team would probably reveal they tried to sacrifice themselves for each other... and ends up in a 2-2-2 tie. THEN, Vinnie tries to enact 'Destroy Brandi' but Damon gets a change of heart seeing familial love firsthand and the vote goes 3-3, Vinnie and Brandi. Then--

But that probably won't happen. This won't be a happy Tribal Council (except for Junior and Vinnie, anyways).

Reply Smasher 101, June 1st, 2017, 10:49 pm

Damon is great

Yeah there's no tie-breaker and it's not Brandi. Lake's going to convince Brandi they have to for each other, only to sacrifice himself by instead casting a throwaway vote for Vinnie.

Bye Lake. You were pretty much a dick in general and can't play Survivor to save your life, but if this is right then you're going out in a good way.

Reply Tsurasa, June 2nd, 2017, 1:20 am

Thank you, Damon. Already loved you and this sorely needed speech just solidified it. Especially since Lake at least seemed to take this to heart somewhat. Joining the train of thought that he'd probably take the bullet to let Brandi survive to the probable merge and carry on, as he seems to be catching on to their respective Survivor smarts.

Meanwhile, Vinnie... kinda went off the deep end there, didn't he... can't help but wonder if he's stopping this rampage when either of the Lakes is going home or if it's just going to get worse.

Reply lstaff4, June 2nd, 2017, 1:25 am

Damon is the best character confirmed

Reply Blastoise_FTW (Guest), June 2nd, 2017, 5:57 am

Sometimes a quick verbal kick in the balls is the only way to get through someone's thick-ass skull. Damon is the man. I love the detectives' ''oh SHIT'' reaction at hey're staring at eachother in panel 3.


Bowser Jr.: Brandi

Brandi: Lake

Damon: Lake

Lake: Brandi

Riley: Lake

Vinnie: Brandi

Tiebreaker. Lake throws it so damn hard it flies out of the TC area and knocks Rosella out cold over at Ponderosa.

Reply Guest, June 2nd, 2017, 6:11 am

Uhhh guys

Lake and Brandi voting for eachother does nothing.

There's still a re-vote, assuming SWSU hasn't ditched those. Brandi's fucked unless Lake throws his vote away to send himself home over Brandi.

There will be no tiebreaker. If there's a tie, Brandi still goes home. Lake only goes home if he sabotages the vote against himself.

Also, I totally called Lake/Brandi's story having a good ending. I saw a lot of "SHE VOTED OUT HER DAD" posts especially after how horrible their start was... but I knew by the time one of them left, the story would end on a high note.

Reply Tailslover13, June 2nd, 2017, 6:31 am

@Guest: Even if it's kinda cheesy and cliche, I admit that that would be a good way to do the whole "SHE VOTED OUT HER MOM!" parody here. In Blood Vs. Water, Ciera did it simply to remain in the good graces of her alliance. Here, IF it goes the way we think it will, Lewis pretty much sacrifices himself and tricks Brandi into voting for him because he knows she deserves to stay over him, which would be a lot more touching. So, not ALL ways SWSU "parodies" sometimes work, but I think this one might.

Reply EJ122, June 2nd, 2017, 8:24 am

I see what's happening here. Lake is having Brandi vote for him so that he can take the fall. He's going to cast a throwaway vote, probably against Vinnie, to save Brandi.

Reply SkySurfer, June 2nd, 2017, 11:55 am

Looks like we don't need Eli to tell Lake he shouldn't even bother to continue fighting the way he does right now. Damon proves once more why Angelo will never surpass him in awesomeoness.

This pretty much confirms it for me that this is Lake's boot episode. The vote will probably end with a 3-2-1 vote and Lake voting someone random just like most of the others pointed out. I'd rather be interested in a "I'll avenge my father" than a "I'll avenge my daughter" arc so I hope Brandi doesn't have the same thought

Reply dat4yc, June 2nd, 2017, 1:15 pm

Woah round of applause to Damon for finally telling Lake what I believe this whole community has been wanting to tell him for a while. Good stuff.

Looks like Lake is gonna probably end up voting for Vinnie, sacrificing himself for his daughter. At least I hope that's how it happens, really not ready for Brandi or Vinnie to leave.

Reply anime9001, June 2nd, 2017, 5:39 pm

This is a bit late and all, but I just want to point out that after Damon's long spiel about Lake his first words in the confessional was "A simple 'No' would have sufficed...." But if you look back, Damon did give a simple "no." He only went on his rant after Lake asked why.

I just felt like pointing this out cause it's just kinda amusing.

Reply qazox, June 3rd, 2017, 9:47 am

(keep in mind, 2 days later.. and i have no idea how the vote went yet...)

Lake- 75% to go
Brandi- 25% to go.

Lake tosses a vote at Vinnie to save Brandi.

BUT what i want to happen is:

Lake and Brandi say screw it, both vote for Vinnie, making it 2-2-2; and forcing the other 3 to re-vote. in the re-vote Riley and Junior flip and vote out Vinnie as Lake gets Damon's vote
