BEST KILL AWARD:
Hansel Williams, for killing Daniel Whitten
Alright this kill/death entertained me quite a bit. It was sudden and I like that - it's realistic to me. Not every death/kill needs to be something dramatic and that's what won me over. The scenario was a fun thing that worked well in my imagination. It was chance meeting between three characters, where Hansel had his gun ready, not really looking to kill but to threaten the unknowing Daniel from a distance/hiding. Amaranta, might I add was an excellent fit as the unfortunate witness to the whole thing, bumping in Daniel when the whole surprise happened.
Best of all, it seems this scene will have a long lasting impact on many characters and not just the ones involved. Daniel was a friend to many and his death will shakes things on the island. Hansel has blood on his hands from this, and Mara after witnessing this just a few inches from her face, is already having a deep development on her character from when she first started and looks like she'll be taking this thing more seriously than before. Great, amusing scene that will leave an impact.
Joe Carrasco, for killing Jason Meyers
Honorable mention: I thought of the first couple deaths, this was probably the best thought out scenario and it played off interestingly. Nice swerve where it looked like Finn would be the killer, but it turned out to be Joe who did it instead. The kill also looks like it will have a strong impact on Joe's story.
BEST DEATH AWARD:
Slamexo, for the death of Gabriella Parker
What I really liked about this death scene. was Gabriella's reactions to Theodore through out the whole scene. it was different I thought and was a good first kill scene. What made it different to me, was Gabriella instead of trying to fight back or run or escape or anything like that... knew she was trapped and was determined to reason with him. Throughout that whole scene it was evident to me, where you could almost feel Gabby's increasing frustration after each post, when Theo just wouldn't listen to reason or the sense she made. The frustration and defeat was a pretty serious and dark moment that truly fit the SOTF feel for me.
