...It's really a lot of people's faults here. You could blame Sid for giving Couscous immunity, Stiletto for not committing, La'Toya for dealing the killing blow, or even Bart himself for coming up with that last-minute plan and losing Sylvester's trust. But regardless, Bartholomew is out.

I don't know whether you could tell but Bart is probably my favorite character this season. The Siamese Twin idea was one I've always thought would be so interesting to write out. Having one twin want to do one thing and another twin do another and being forced to compromise. Plus the strong brotherly bond they'd have in general leaves a lot of room for character development. Putting Bart and Sid in this season was a stroke of genius.

As for Bart himself, I wanted to make fun of some of the hardcore Survivor fans for sure, but at the same time I didn't want to limit him to parody. Bart COULD make moves, and he DID make moves, but he progressively lost control of the game to his brother, and while it should've been obvious Sid was going to be the surviving brother I wanted to keep both of them in for a good long time to flesh their bond out. And I really like how it ended up, though I do think I could've given Bart a little more screentime this episode I think?

Either way Bart was amazing, but now it's time for Sid to stand on his own. How will that happen? Hint: the Episode 13 title lol.

By the way, by the game going in hyperdrive, I mean the game schedule's going to be as follows:

Episode 13: Day 35 immunity and F6 TC, Day 36 immunity and F5 TC. So it's a double boot episode.

And the finale goes: Day 37 immunity and F4 TC, Day 38 Fallen Comrades final immunity and F3 TC, then Day 39 FTC.

Okay I wasn't a huge Bart fan but that was a perfect ending for him actually

@DrMonkeyman: I briefly considered making him bitter...but then I decided, nah.

Reply Missalice3, December 19th, 2014, 10:44 pm sort of weird, I'm shocked - but it felt so weird for him to leave this episode, was there any hints?
I think Bart was an interesting character, and the dynamic between the brothers was VERY well done, it was nice seeing that play out, but now I don't really know how anything will happen...because I SORTA expected for the twins to be in a final 3. :P

@Missalice3: I kept the hints at a minimum, because I like blindsides. :)

Reply Missalice3, December 19th, 2014, 11:02 pm

@Vilecheese: Well done for sure! ^_^ But question...why was Bart's story done? Out of curiosity.

Reply Vilecheese, December 19th, 2014, 11:29 pm

@Missalice3: Because Sid now needs to go on his own.

And there goes any chance of getting Latoya out. Still wanna know how Sid will not be there... perhaps a blindfold/mask with heavy duty earplugs and/or noise cancelation earphones?

Reply Vilecheese, December 19th, 2014, 11:29 pm

@qazox: There may still be another chance...

Personally it's Bart's fault, but it's my opinion.

Bart had his moments (like with the constant Brenda worshiping). still, Sid isn't going to be happy that his brother is gone.

Bart was certainly my favorite from his original tribe. I usually like meta characters and Bart certainly delivered on that. Plus Bart was just generally awesome.

Reply DrMonkeyman (Guest), December 20th, 2014, 2:18 pm

But wait will this work...? Is Bart's mouth gonna be taped shut or something for the rest of the game?

Reply Congo (Guest), December 20th, 2014, 4:10 pm

awwww they were close to getting rid of la'toya :(

so bart and sid will be separated. my guess is either cartoon magic will separate them (they get their own body) or bart will be strategically edited out of every comic panel from now on. that would be funny. but what about bart at ponderosa?

winner picks: stiletto (for some reason i think she's being set up as a wtf winner)
sid (he feels decoy-ish but he has a strong edit, with being the opposition to la'toya and all)

You can do it, Sid! Remember, Natalie had to survive most of the game without her twin sister Nadiya, and she ended up winning!

But then again, I guess it was easier for her, due to her not being a Siamese twin and all...

@Bad Asp: Imagine how difficult the Amazing Race would've been for them if they were Siamese...

How could you do this to bart ;(

Reply Vilecheese, December 22nd, 2014, 7:14 pm

@LandenMaster: I'm an awful person. :(

uh is Latoya completely blind to how badly going up against a jury that knows what she did to Megumi a terrible idea, cause that's at least 3-4 votes she's in no way getting

Reply Vilecheese, December 22nd, 2014, 7:15 pm

@EEK: Maybe
