Just when Derek and Jenny make a breakthrough, the one who had been trying to get the kids to stop fights get blindsided. Slash leaves the game tonight.

I don't think it needs to be explained how much I loved writing for Slash this season. He was such a fun character, and a concept I had been wanting to try out for quite a while, where similar to Gabriel Cade from Marquesas almost being cast on another season.... I wanted to see how this would play out if this happened on accident. With Slash's role in the story, I had several things I wanted to do. 1.) Focus more on Slash's personality and build on it.... since if we're being honest in SFC2, he really was a big ol' wad of nothing. 2.) Have him be the supporting role in other players stories. Normally when there is a returning player in seasons with newbies, that person takes up the narrative and takes center stage with the rest of the cast being linked to them. But with Slash, I wanted for him to be a supporting role, both in a narrative aspect, but also as a personality style. He was someone who was very supportive of people who needed it. Derek, Jenny, Jeannie. And even though he did take a backseat to them in the story. I'm thrilled with how he came out this season. And 3.) Have him leave in the Early Jury. Again like with most solo veterans in these scenarios. They almost always make the end, so for Slash, I wanted to avoid that and have him be one of the first few jurors seated.

Building upon Slash's minimal character foundations that were set up in SFC2 were very fun especially with the Time Skip. For someone who started out as a parody of bad Sonic Fan Characters in SFC2.... Slash in SFC17 became much more than a gag character, and was a really positive force on this season, and it is sad to see him go home just after Jenny and Derek got over the worst of their feud... But I don't think Slash is too torn up about everything.... Even though it doesn't look like he lost ANY weight out here...

Yep. Of course the only likable person on the tribe has to be the one that leaves. I'm so close to being done with this. Jenny is a two-faced bitch. Derek is a hateful dumbass. Kade is a creep. Jeannie is literally nothing more than an actual tool at this point and it's making me despise her even if it's not technically her fault. Slash didn't deserve to leave here. So 19th and 11th are his two placements. Yeah...nothing to be proud of. Him going out is just the start of the end. I still prefer the old Slash more. Honestly, age should not affect your personality and character...you should always be true to your heart no matter how old you get or what changes go on in your life. I still loved him, though. I'm just...too sad and over this to really bother going on. I'm just sad.

@Tailslover13: I see why u would hate Jenny after that. But honestly I would have done the same thing if I was her. Just a pity it was Slash that went. Plus if Derek and Jenny had put thier differences aside they could have taken out kade instead.

@Crazy Fan: what did Ollie do :(
Edit: AND Mele and cutiecat
Edit: why is raiza perfection? I can sorta see why but you have to admit she did abuse the ex-machina’s powers even if it was that she has a bad self worth

Saw it coming, but it sucks nonetheless. Slash is a cool dude.

@ChronoAlone: Super Cool, and Super Chill.

I had a feeling, but it doesn't sting any less. Slash this season was an absolute delight, the fun, loving Dad that everyone wishes they had. I was expecting you to send him out in another scattershot vote because lol, so I'm glad you actually sent him off with some dignity.

Anyways, now that Slash is out, this will hopefully light a fire under Derek's ass and make him realize how dangerous Kade is. The fact that Derek and Jenny came a little closer to understanding each other gives me hope that the fabled team up will actually happen.

@DrMarble: Nice to have a Dad character that isn't constant CPM4/CPN4

RIP Slash man, a great concept, good execution

So now Derke and Jenny don'te HATE each other, they just dislike each other? Eh, who cares. Next episode will feature CC going batshit

Man that was a really great moment between Derek and Jenny. I’m hoping this leads to a mending in their relationship and they can work to take down Kade.

Slash was a fine character, but he was getting a little stale for me so I think this was a good time for him to leave. His relationships with Derek and Jeannie were great and I’m glad he got a second chance!

Raiza > Ollie > Parmesan > Jeannie > Jenny > Mele > CutieCat > Derek > Josh > Kade

@dat4yc: In Slash's defense I dont think he got stale, but this is the perfect spot for him to go.

Reply vanilladream, May 27th, 2018, 10:16 pm

I did really like Slash this season, but I think this was the best time for him to leave as his main goal seems to be accomplished. And if nothing else, at least he'll be on the jury.

And really, this was helpful to give me a new perspective on the conflict between Derek and Jenny. Ultimately they're just two people interested in very different things, and Jenny's patronization and Derek's cockiness just stemmed from their hatred for one another. So I'm glad to see Jenny is actually very human as well.

@vanilladream: Both of them aired their complaints very well it seems.

You Turned This Into a Slash Fic The concept of Slash’s return alone seemed perfect for this series, and I was not disappointed. Who would’ve guessed that this middle-aged red hedgehog really turned out to be one of the most forgotten early players in the series? That’s just surreal. After reading that comic, I was laughing in disbelief for quite a while. And I’m glad this previously one-dimensional joke character turned out to be a pretty cool guy after all this time.

Wow, that preview does not give me good feelings. I hope the exile wasn’t too cruel to CeCe.

Reply DryIceBros, May 27th, 2018, 11:19 pm

Well, that sucks. I'll be honest, my first impressions of Slash weren't that great. Something about the way he carried himself and talked didn't sit right with me the right way. But that started to change with the reveal of his true identity, and I began to better appreciate him and the moments he had along the way. I wasn't really sure how much I liked him most of the way through a good part of the season, but your final comments on him made me appreciate his role better. Not to mention his final words to Probst were a good conclusion to his original appearance. So yeah, I liked it. I'd go as far as to say that he's fat, but he's good.

I'm quitting this comic.

Slash didn't deserve this.

You suck.

It's too bad this boot makes so much sense but at least he didn't miss the jury.

Slash should really get a "Tribe Dad" badge after the season, he cared more about the problems of the other contestants than his own chances of winning. If Derek weren't so pigheaded and his biggest rival wouldn't have been Kade Slash's story might have continued but I think he left a very good impression for somone who fills the first jury spot.

It's pretty cool Jeff's persistent questions made Derek and Jenny sympathise a little bit. However I fear they will be back to the blame game next comic. With the good soul of the tribe gone and a shaken CutieCat joining Bulu, there won't be any peace and quiet.

Damn there goes my one of my final 3 pick but oh well I'm not butt hurt. Slash was amazing, plain and simple. He's probably going to be the best character in this season in my opinion. Jeannie I'm going to rooting for your comeback.

Yeeeaaah, this seemed like one of the likelier results. I'm sad to see it happen, but not all too surprised. I really enjoyed Slash this season, and I'm glad he was able to make the jury. His kids got to be here to see him off, and he's going to get to watch them grow for the remainder of the season.

You go Slash man.

I'm honestly really glad about how this Tribal Council went, and not just because I called it. It's nice to see Jenny and Derek overcoming their differences and reaching an understanding. Seeing them grow as people is truly heartwarming.
As for Slash, he was one of my favorites this season. It was great seeing him shine after his lackluster performance in his first season. A truly excellent character. He will be missed.
