I feel like maybe I should explain the reasoning behind my vote, because everyone seems to be attributing it to Dalton's powers of persuasion, and while I don't doubt those, that's not the whole story.

It had occurred to me on Monday afternoon that Liz could be mafia. People around Random had mentioned hearing that Liz had asked Ami and Andrea to be the monster, so I assumed this was more-or-less common knowledge. In that case, it would make perfect sense for the mafia to have conscripted Liz and then had her create a monster. The town would trust the monster, the monster would trust Liz, Liz would orchestrate the lynching of all the innocents, and then the monster would die. It wasn't evidence, but it was a point in favor of killing Liz.

The second reason was that in my mind, from God's point of view, the most awesome possible ending was the monster killing its creator. The second most awesome was the game coming down to ET, which had been a fortress of invulnerability for most of the game. And third was Liz hiding all day on campus while Dalton gave chase.

The main point in favor of voting for Dalton was that Liz and Adam had decent alibis for Jaxxson's death, but that reasoning ended up not winning.

Dalton's PM to me made sense, but it was a trigger that caused me to think about the above points, not a decisive argument in itself. In fact, since Liz wanted Adam dead, Adam wanted Dalton dead, and Dalton wanted Liz dead, the whole thing was pretty much a wash.

Anyway, the game's over, and probably no one cares, but I just wanted to assert my claim that I wasn't just Dalton's mindless slave. (Not that there's anything wrong with that.)
