An End to a Great Season
Thanks SWSU for a great season from start to finish. I enjoyed reading this season live as always. This was definitely an All-Star season done right.

I'll admit, until Junior was voted out, I did not see a Doris win coming. I thought for sure Junior was the winner. The main reason being was because I figured anybody else winning would make for a poor winner. I still agree with that sentiment - Doris was dull and uninteresting from start to finish, and not once did I ever find myself rooting for her before the Final 3. In fact, I was rooting against her and Bradley for most of the season. She absolutely deserved to win, but so have just about every other SFC winner.

Still, a winner that in my opinion wasn't good doesn't change the fact that this season was very good. Definitely in the top 5. I would argue SFC16 has possibly the best pre-merge in the series thus far. That's an accomplishment.

This was definitely an excellent cast as well, which I felt would turn out very well from the beginning.

Since everybody else has done character rankings, I'll go ahead and post mine:

20) Lake - Hate
19) Rosella - Hate
18) Iyzebel - Dislike
17) Sierra - Dislike/Mixed
16) Doris - Slightly Dislike
15) Bradley - Neutral
14) Clydia - Neutral
13) Bonnie - Neutral (This was Bonnie done RIGHT)
12) Eli - Slightly Like
11) Cassidy - Like
10) Scott - Like
9) Vinnie - Like
8) Tialayla - Love
7) Thorne - Love
6) Angelo - Love
5) Brandi - Love
4) Bowser - Love
3) Damon - Love
2) Riley - Adore
1) Bowser Jr. - Adore

The ratio of likeable characters to unlikeable characters is really telling for a season. Good job. Not often are my opinions this positive for a cast.
This is going to be where Doris loses immunity and is voted out. It's incredibly obvious that she's the biggest threat, and she doesn't have any sort of story that suggests she's the winner.

And if she somehow does win immunity, there will be a Final 2 twist of some sort.
Hi
With Tialayla gone, I can say with 100% confidence that Bowser Jr. will be the winner of SFC16.

That is my prediction, and I am sticking to it.

Peace.
Yeah, it's likely at this point that Sierra is a FTC loser, big time. I don't hate her, I think her character arc is an interesting one, and she's a very human character with a lot of emotion. However, she's terrible at the game.
I'm actually going to go against the majority opinion here. I believe Sierra is more likely to be the boot this episode. Her character arc is pretty much finished. She's gone through the entire season trying to get proof that Thorne cares about her. Now that she's finally got that evidence, she's got no development left. Plus, if Sierra is really a bigger threat according to what Thorne said, then she's the one who's going to be targeted.

I can't wait to see the shocked reactions when Sierra leaves.
I dunno about that Thorne. You don't seem emotionless to me. You're clearly expressing annoyance right now.
Hooray! Now Doris can develop as an independent character!

Also, nice reference to Damon's knot tying abilities. http://sfc.smackjeeves.com/comics/2007035/sfc13-day-16-all-tied-up/
Wait, tonight's the night that Were-Riley comes out? Is that true?

I still think one of the Staggs will be leaving.
Minority opinion here, but I'm really hoping one of the Staggs goes at tribal. One needs to go so that the other can develop further.
@StarlightNexus-Chan I have the webcomic in my favorites list, so I'm notified every time new pages are posted.

Also, I think you can directly reply to my comments by adding a @EJ122.
Thanks for the Smackjeeves mirror! I've followed a little on DA, but I often miss new pages there.
Tialayla is 100% justified here. It's not good to blow up on an ally, but Bradley kinda has it coming after that move. What Tialayla needs to do rather then rant is fight from the bottom... and she's good at that.

Tialayla and Riley are the best couple. <3
Yeah, I saw this one coming. Brandi had no story or character development left at this point.

I could go into detail about how much I love Brandi's redemption this season, but everybody else already has. She has really become an endearing character. Still dislike her SFC15 version though.

I'm very glad that Vinnie's alliance came out on top. The season would have become boring if the Staggs and Tialayla/Riley dominated. Now, more chaos and entertainment can resume.

And finally, Thorne and Sierra's relationship may finally be coming to a climax next episode. That is, if Sierra doesn't blindly trust her sister again.
This definitely isn't Junior's boot episode, but I'm very torn because we just had a rock draw last season. I'm pretty sure Bradley's alliance is supposed to take the hit here... if I had to guess, I'm going to predict that somebody's going to turn on Brandi, and try to get Damon to replace her in the alliance next round.
Shy Guy Says! I love all the references. I used to be really good at that minigame. Good times.
All of that hard-work just for spriting the background of one reward comic. That takes dedication.
Interesting, we're getting more personal development from Vinnie. I always like getting background info on these characters.

If and when Bowser Jr. decided he doesn't want to be taking orders anymore, Vinnie's the one who is going to get payback.
Unique challenge. I like it.

What's the joke behind the inconsistent naming of the poltergeist 3.1415s? It's hilarious, but I don't think I'm getting the joke.
Going Off-Topic for a moment...
I just wanted to mention that Nintendo announced a Superstar Saga remake at E3... How coincidental is that? Announced just a few days after SFC had an amazing comic about it. Can SWSU predict the future? lol
I like Brandi's approach to the game here. She's trying to support someone who's clearly struggling with a personal relationship, and yet is witholding information to benefit her game. Very well played.

If Brandi gets to the end with the right people, she's likely to win the jury vote. However, I don't think she'll get there considering that she's a threat moving forward.
