You heard us, we know you heard us. You know we loved the Courtney/Gwen friendship, you spent a season putting them back together. Then you do this. You take all the good and development Courtney had, all of it, and just threw it away. Everything she and Gwen went through, just added up to nothing. You screwed over her character, again, just to make it easier for her to get voted off. Why her, exactly? What is it about her, that makes you pull out all the stops to make people not want to like her? Why is it she goes through more humiliating and dehumanizing shit than the villains of the season? Why do you make it no one will stay friends with her, when she had plenty in the first season? Why do you hate her? Why do you make her VA, who loves the character and says she deserves some good to happen in her life, act out all this shit that happens to her. Why? Why I ask you?

This episode. It just hurts me. It hurts me as a Courtney fan, and the show in general. All those sweet moments we loved and reblogged and faved? Gone. Totally pointless. They added up to nothing. Nothing came from them. Oh and the "friends" she had, they just dumped her. No second thoughts, no regrets. Just drop her. All they had to see was a fucking drawing (yeah, explain that shit to me Fresh, why would she doodle it like Ezekiel and draw on their faces?) and they immediately act like she did some unforgivable sin, like set fire to a dog or something. Great to know such strong bonds were formed this season.

And what's worse, this entire episode, this entire plot, was just an excuse in how to torture Courtney. Her friends abandon her, they bring out the very worst of her character to the forefront when we haven't seen any of that since she made up with Gwen and got with Scott, Chris changes the rules intentionally to screw her over, her former friend gets her to vote for herself just to insure she's gone under the pretense she'll vote for who Courtney wants, and she's flushed with nary a care by anyone, and my hatred for Fresh grows ever more.

Thing is, while I'm typing this, I'm not even raging mad or breaking the keys. What burns inside me is a slow burn, a tranquil fury. Tempered by sheer disappointment and shame. I've kept the faith people. Through TDA when they shoe-horned Courtney in as the villain and with the piss-poor writing, pacing, and characterization, through TDWT and the Love Triangle and the fucked up implication that THAT was a good thing and that Gwen and Courtney's friendship wasn't as important. I thought that ROTI was a God-send, that you had learned your lesson and everything would be better. But instead it just showed what happened when you didn't have any old characters to FUCK OVER!

And the sad part is, this isn't the end. Oh no. I'm so close to the end of the season, I just can't stop now, even after this bullshit. I guess I'm just sick that way. A small part of me hopes this'll all be fixed in the finale, but the larger part of me knows that shit isn't gonna fly. I'm going to see this through, because stopping now would be the cowards way out. I'm staying with this bitch people. Right to the flaming crater that is the end.

But the most important thing is this, I'm not gonna take this shit quietly. I'm not gonna just let Fresh think this is a good decision or that this is something we're okay with or that those that do are just a vocal minority. Oh no. I'm going to let them know, let them hear, let them SEE, that this shitty, piss poor writing, is not gonna fly. We're not gonna keep this to message boards, forums, or Facebook posts anymore. I'm not anyway. I'm gonna start an f'ing petition and send it to Fresh. For what? BETTER WRITING! We're gonna list all the huge flaws they've made as writers, the failures to follow through with the stuff they've built up over an entire season just to throw away and the characters they've fucked up for "drama".

This shit just can't stand anymore. You've got a complaint about the show and how it's being run, let me hear it. I'm going to compile every shitty thing they've done into one giant mountain of bullcrap, and email it to Fresh. We're gonna let them know we're not doing this out of hate for the show or it's characters, but because we LOVE the show and the characters. But I can't say the same for what they're doing for it anymore. This isn't a show anymore, it's a trainwreck.

Couldn't agree with you more. I know when I saw the sneak peek at it I was sure they wouldn't show some big spoiler like that to show that Courtney would obviously get the boot. Boy, was I wrong. They just keep twisting her character more and more since TDA. Actually, it had to be the one episode before TDA and the very last episode of Total Drama. Drama Drama Drama Island I think?

Courtney developed a lot in TDI, especially the episode Basic Straining. Showed Courtney could be lax and have fun. They messed up a lot of my favorite characters since then and Courtney probably the biggest one just for the sake of 'drama' as you say. It's like watching Heather again in TDI accept worse. Like winning will always be above friends and relationship then of course. It's like the writers went out of their way to  just completely demonize Courtney. Nothing wrong with being bossy or taking charge, but it's like they threw out any kind of development for her character at all. Courtney was a nice person. Even in the first episode of TDI when she helped Izzy out of water after falling off the dock. First person to do it too and now they just have her as a cut throat CIT that would do anything to win. I mean, seriously. It's like they favor Gwen among anything and just decided 'let's not make them friends anymore. Too easy.'

Honestly I would have thought the next episode to go with Mal trying to boot Courtney off since she's a strong player and a threat. Could see him trying to sabotage her with fake evidence or something of the like, but having Courtney make such a immature chart like that with a crude drawing and very vaguely not showing HOW Mal got the chart either? I don't think she'd be so dumb as to leave it around for anyone to find. It's probably going to end up as Zoey vs Mal. I hate this. Minus well look at the last two episodes. Chances are the next one will be a double elimination.

Could Zoey be so dense not to see ALL the signs of Mike not being herself? It's like she's in some loop of denile. She knows it's true but she'll just brush it off with any hint of suspicions she has. Like he really couldn't do any wrong. They really make Zoey out to be really dumb, even though she's just as resourceful  as Courtney is. It's weird it's like Zoey is a bit like how Courtney should have been. I just...blergh. Do the writers hate Courtney that much? Sheesh, wonder if the voice actor herself even likes Courtney as much as she did.

Just so many characters ruined and underrated. TDI is always gonna be the best one due to the development of the characters and friendships established.

Far too naive to the point where I just think it's stupid. Even with the obvious signs. This season has gotten way too predictable, especially in the sneak peeks and their challenge.  Pretty sure Scott and Gwen are history in the next episode and then it'll just come down to Mal and Zoey. No doubt something anti-climatic..

You would have thought the cross over season would have been a good idea and it was for a moment until they decided they didn't want to stick to character development. Blahh fresh tv why?

People trying to justify it as her just being Courtney is just stupid. She's been known to be cut throat and bossy, but this is just really amplified. Fresh TV just gave up trying to have a quality show anymore. '5th season so let's not even try.'

Been gone for awhile. DA seemed mre like an awful cess pool for a long time so I disappeared. XD Along with Life keeping me overly busy.

:V Someone needs to get rid of all the foot fetishes and inflation art then maybe I shall consider this! Least you guys and others aren't part of the cess pool.

Seriously. You don't see everyone else being grilled as hard as Courtney. As manipulative as Alejandro was in TDWT and Heather was in TDI it all just got written off for the fake of canon relationship and because of their looks. Seriously they're not good guys. Heather isn't even good. She wasn't that hard nose Queen Bee in TDI as much, but she still wasn't looking to make friends or anything in any season. Courtney, like you said is like ten times amplified.

So what if she's bossy and gets really competitive. So is Heather, but you don't see people with pitch forks up for her. I was happy about the other two episodes that showed Courtney's nicer side and how she can easily be friends with Gwen, heck probably even other girls too, but didn't seem like Fresh didn't want Courtney to have like ANY friends of the like or gal pals. Seriously, it's like she's the outcast of the group. So many lost opportunities. >:

Gotta draw me some Courtney art now.

I agree so much with you, as a fellow Courtney fan, watching this episode was like a big slap in the face. Even people who didn't care that much about Courtney understand this.

Courtney's elimination was very obvious, even from the sneak peeks. I hoped that it wouldn't be so obvious, thinking that something else will happen or Courtney gets to continue. But sadly, the writers decided to write Courtney with her worst traits magnified throughout the episode without any development or reason for it.

And its becoming more and more clear that the writers can't even handle the characters correctly. I've tried to shrug over as many OOC and stupid moments as I could, thinking they'll do better. But no, they're proving that the fans are much more dedicated and faithful to what "Total Drama" should be.

Welp this episode sucked. Not only because of Courtney, but Zoey's stupidity is seriously grating me. Scott and Mal were the only two ok characters well more of Scott than Mal since I still think Mal is a pretty weak villain. Overall, I agree. TERRIBLE episode.

Well Courtney's attitude in this episode IS spot on to her character...... BUT for it to come out of the blue to destroy her again is another thing. But yeah I'm still not excusing her actions toward Gwen and Scott in this episode.

This came out of no where. No reason for her to act like this, no reason for her to make such a crude list, no explanation on how in the hell Mal found it, no reason they should react this badly to THIS when so much worse has been overlooked or forgiven. After all the crap they went through to make this work they drop it in ten seconds. Real great their Fresh.

And they call Lindsay, Tyler, and Lightning stupid.  If Bill Engvall caught on about how dumb these guys are being, he'd probably tell them, "Here's your sign!" and make a comedy bit out of it.  I wonder how many of those writers were featured in clips shown on "World's Dumbest".

Gwen just means that much to her
i have a feeling that they will make up at the finale
