John. Walking. Shannon shudders. Mark L. Walberg stares. John smiles at Shannon. Shannon looks down. To Mark L. Walberg. John! Shannon! John! Commercials.
Back. Mark L. Walberg, leaning in, desperate to be accepted and talked to and loved. He gives Shannon time to "speak from [her] heart" and tells John to listen. Just listen. Just listen, fucker. Oh yeah, and smirk righteously. That's what you do best.
Shannon. Here come the dramatics. Okay. So Shannon says that this was the hardest thing she's ever had to do in her whole life. She says that she met ten of the greatest guys and "three" of the greatest girls she's met in her life. (Which of the four, including Genevieve, is she leaving out? Which of the boy hos?) John also starts with the dramatics, putting his fist to his face and crying and shit. God. The both of them. They deserve to be together. Forever. She goes on to say that all these people were her friends and she decided after about ten days she should surround herself with the most positive influence on the island (Chester, the dog?) and there was so much negative going on and (cry, cry) she hated it. (In other words, she hated watching people get together on fucking Temptation Island 2 -- GOD she pisses me off.) She begins the Kevin bullshit that she got really close to him and his Gigantic Soul Patch and he's a great guy and John should know this and he's crying too and fuck off. Kevin has passion and Shannon learned a lot from him. On their final date, they learned and "went really, really deep" and she needs to learn to respect herself and their relationship and she cries that she's sorry she's taken John and their relationship for granted and "mothered" him and put up a wall and judged him by standards of her past but John is not her past but, she hopes, her future. She wants to fight and cherish and she's sorry she hasn't and if that's what she takes away from this and even if John doesn't want to, it's good and her love has grown stronger and that's her decision. "I love you," says Shannon. "We don't give a fuck," says America.
