Great season with nice implentation of Mario games and items, however the finale was a bit disapointing to me. I don't have a problem with Doris' obvious victory but Sierra simply feels like a terrible 2nd place to me, especially since Vinnie did much more to earn his spot.

Showing villain qualities shouldn't make you automatically lose to one or two overall nicer finalists. I hope this will change in a future season but don't let this criticism discourage you.Just like I said I enjoyed the season as it had more likeable contestants than usual with some exceptions. Will be around for SFC17, that's for sure.

From worst to best: Rosella - Bonnie - Cassidy - Clydia - Iyzebel - Lake - Sierra - Angelo - Scott - Eli - Bradley - Tialayla - Thorne - Doris - Brandi - Bowser - Vinnie - Bowser Jr - Damon - Riley
Well, besides the obvious votes I hope for a head-to-head race because that would be so fitting for this season.

I wonder if Bonnie shows up in a wheelchair tomorrow...
Weakest Thorne moment this season. As much as I liked her during the season connecting Doris and sociopathic tendencies is a terrible way to discredit her. I certainly prefered the other jury comments like Junior and Tialayla pointing out Sierra's "strategy" just Angelo going into this totally unprepared compared to Brandi.

Aw, just two comics left...
Well, for once Sierra really knew how to apporach such a situation. Still not sure if "steering the game" fits here when most of her votes were affected by others.
The other two speeches aren't surprising, Doris pointing out her not agressive game and Vinnie going for respect votes since he cannot get any based on sympathy. Tomorrow will be entertaining
I hope Vinnie doesn't ruin his chances for something better than a third place. In contrast to Sierra he always had a good focus on his plans and took out many people with higher chances to win. Sierra would have to admit that she was easily to manipulate and only stayed cause she wasn't a threat most of the time. I wouldn't say this is impressive.

While I'm pretty sure Doris wins this because of her far from agressive game I gotta admit I'd like to see a nice result for Vinnie. It's not like a winner shouldn't be allowed to have villainous moves on the scorecard as well
Oh well, at least he really is a formidable final jury member.
Junior was one of the earliest contestants I could easily root for. He questioned his father's short term villain plans but formed his own big moves. He seemed the most likely winner to me for a very long time but once I saw him winning so many immunities in a row and basing his bigger moves on personal vendetta I started to have my doubts. I would have loved to see him compete with Vinnie but it wasn't meant to be.

Definite win for Doris with only Junior and Thorne voting for the others? This would be kinda boring so I hope Vinnie left a bit more of an impression than just being the mean old veteran.
Sierra is reliable enough to turn this into a tiebreaker. Then I still have the opinion that Doris will beat Junior in one just because over-confidence is a Koopa trademark.

No matter who leaves tomorrow... Except for Sierra everyone of them can be proud to have made it this far.
That's actually an outcome I'm ok with. Vinnie went through a lot to get there so even though he had his jerk moments it's cool he won when he finally tried and was full of determination.

No skipping to the final SFC16 comic. There's no rule you have to fill the Final 3 with at least one person so having Doris leave after Riley would be cruel but make the finale more interesting.
As usual: Many contestants learned from their experience but some few inconvincable didn't.

I wonder how many Mushroom Kingdom residents actually watched the season. Either most of them didn't or they did but were too scared to prevent Iyzebel's and Scott's marriage and honeymoon.

With so many likeable and interesting characters I like the the conclusions the others are drawing about the season here, especially Thorne's and Riley's. Still I'm glad we didn't get more details on Angelo's love shack and Bonnie got enough reasons not to return a fourth time.

Looking forward to final immunity and the right winner.
Although it's far too late trying to impress the jury I applaud Vinnie for confronting Sierra. His approach was far more effective than the others trying to reassure her.

Despite his winning streak I think Junior will lose to Doris since he seems overconfident. If anyone else than her wins then Junior has the best chances to become sole survivor. I think a lot of respect will play a role in the end.
Oh well, no surprising outcome but at least nothing close to a rampage.

Riley was easily the most likeable character this season. His Kopeii personality prevented him from being a one-sided character and despite being very timid he tried his best to comfort other contestants. It seems obvious to me SWSU didn't want him to be compared to Cherman afterwards because of his not so good challenge performance. He's still a winner

So our sole survivor will either be Doris or Junior, depending who wins final immunity. Vinnie can at least celebrate the fact that he made Final 4 again and Sierra... well, I want to forget she's still in the game
I'd hope Junior was right with his remark but there is a lot pointing to Riley leaving with an unthankful 5th place like many fan favourites.

I'm starting to wave goodbye to him as well but change to celebrating instead if for some reason he survives this.
Junior is surprisingly agile for a Koopa, I thought it would be head-to-head race with Sierra but he left the others no chance.

Vinnie has obviously prepared another mind game. Pretending to vote against Doris so she plays the idol but vote Riley instead since he is a jury threat. The question is if Kopeii agrees with that plan. Will Riley leave at the same point of the game as Ky? Yeah, this TC probably won't be for for the faint-hearted.
The way Sierra is handling this the others will just keep her till the finals as an "easy to beat" rival. She cannot finish the season with zero votes since Thorne will vote for her but everyone else has higher chances to become sole survivor.

If the upcoming night doesn't have the effect of a wake-up call then we should get used to gloomy Sierra throwing with random votes and... coconuts.
So now we even get a comic where Vinnie seems more likeable than Sierra...

I don't feel any sympathy for hypocrite Sierra. Doris and her alliance offered her a good spot in the alliance and as a thank you she was even willing to get rid of her in the second vote. Doris had no real reason to apologize apart from making a single not very heroic move.

I wonder how the others want to handle the Kopeii problem since they usually watched the muscle bros or Tialayla taking care of it. The last full moon will determine if the jury gets the chance to vote for him or not
The wrong sister left but it was pretty much inevitable after the first part of Tribal Council.

Although it was obvious from the beginning that Thorne had no chance to win this I was rooting for her and hope she could make the Final 3 as a personal victory. She often seemed to be as empathetic as a rock but this made her more interesting + she was pretty good at strategizing. Too bad she wanted to guarantee she'd be the one leaving first.

The seating arrangements are so fitting here. Sierra is totally left out and no one had a problem with Doris completing the deal with the devil. The next days will be very akward.
Did she really ask "What did I do?!"? Sierra has sucessfully burned so many bridges behind her it's not funny anymore. I expected her to act smarter this time but after helping to fill the jury with people who cannot stand her she might as well stop bothering.

It was great to have Tialayla back this season. I felt sorry for her when she couldn't catch a breath during her original season but she lasted a bit longer than I expected this time. Despite some cheeky moments I cannot say I didn't like the way she played the game. There is much truth in Vinnie's explanations, Tialayla really was a a threat this season and she would have deserved to get closer to the finals. At least she left with a smile.

Will Vinnie succeed in breaking up the last couple of the season? I think the only thing saving Thorne would be Sierra giving her the Luigi hat but I better stop expecting something like that...
Interesting how Vinnie dropped his revenge plan and counts on Thorne to manipulate Sierra once more. Since the preview mentioned that one survivor will go against the loved one I think that Sierra will vote against Vinnie since she'd lose too many jury votes if not doing that. I don't want to imagine she'd decide differently just to please her sister.

In case the twist really is a double boot either Tialayla or Throne will have to follow. I doubt Sierra can leave this TribalCouncil as a winner.
Heh, interesting how Bowser knew his son was responsible for the homerun. The special bond between father and son or just enough cameras in the losers lodge? The precision landing made it even more satisfying to watch.

Some other contestant performances were disappointing instead. Especially Doris obviously never watched a Smash Bros match and Vinnie keeps being the King Of Giving Up. Looks like Thorne's a goner unless Sierra saves her sister for once.
Uno... One of my favourite card games till today. I certainly didn't expect a relaxing filler comic that late in the season but I appreciate it.

Too bad Thorne missed the chance to form a counter-alliance but at least Riley can shine in something he's actually good at.
