The X-Cast blog team are going to share their daily predictions about the Episode Tournament fixtures coming up, talking about who they think will win (not crucially who *should* win – that’s up to you!).
JOHN DOE vs 3
Tony: “JOHN DOE – a mixture of being possibly S9’s strongest episode & 3 being hated by the fandom should see it through, but 3 deserves more love.
Carl: “JOHN DOE – if 3 is going to defeat anything it’d probably be a Season 9 episode. However, it’s up against one of the strongest ones here, and will probably be on the end of a 70% – 30% beating.”
Sarah: “I think 3 has a decent chance to squeak through with a win in this one.”
Baz: “JOHN DOE is one of three best episodes of season 9. I would love this to win. But being season 9, who knows?”
Paige: “Good lord, I hope John Doe wins. That’s a top-10 run of the series ep for me.”
DRIVE vs BIOGENESIS
Tony: “DRIVE: much as Biogenesis is a fine episode, it’s hard to see beyond Vince Gilligan, Bryan Cranston and a dash of Speed. Win.”
Carl: “DRIVE win. Biogenesis is no slouch, though, so Drive’s winning margin could be an early signal of its tournament potential. Could go far.”
Baz: “Biogenesis is okay with a good cliffhanger, but a weak end to a very strong season. I think Drive is clearly the winner though for the early magic of Gilligan and Cranston.”
Paige: “The first teaming of Gilligan and Cranston must prevail!”
Sarah: “Gilligan and Cranston FTW!”
