TOURNAMENT PREDICTIONS – Hungry vs Mulder & Scully Meet the Were-Monster / Wetwired vs 731

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!).

December 14th/15th




Tony: “WERE MONSTER – absolute slam dunk for the best episode of Season 10.”

Carl: “Yeah, WERE-MONSTER is going through. I think it could go far in this tournament, actually. Will it be the Darin Morgan episode that does best?”

Sarah: “WERE-MONSTER has this one in the bag. Hungry is one I’d not seen again until my rewatch recently. I actually kind of liked it, but WM is far and away better.”

Sam: “I actually found the concept of Hungry concept quite terrifying, but a poor episode all in all. Were-Monster for sure this time!”

Baz: “I quite like HUNGRY, particularly the concept but it’s not an all-time classic and comes at the point where interest in the show was starting to wane. I think WERE-MONSTER is much closer to classic status and the highlight of the revival. No contest really, WERE-MONSTER will win.”

Paige: “Go Were-Monster go. As with all Darin Morgan episodes, the more you see it, the more you get out of it.”




Tony: “731 – relatively close match as neither are beloved, but Mulder on the speeding train should do it.”

Baz: “Ah 731 is one of my favourite mythology episodes the show ever did. It’s exciting, has a great climax with Mr X rescuing Mulder from the exploding train and really builds on the show’s mythology. WETWIRED is great but not quite as memorable, even though it has the Mr X works for the CSM twist. I believe 731 will win this one.”

Carl: “Relatively close, I agree. I think WETWIRED might edge this, the examination of the trust between Mulder & Scully resonates with a lot of fans.”

Sam: “I agree with Baz, 731 is a great mythology episode. I’m going with that.”

Paige: “I love the Wetwired/731 matchup. That’s a really good one. I think the mythology fans might push 731 through.”

Sarah: “731 is an iconic episode in the mytharc. I think it’ll beat Wetwired but it might be close.”

Ally: “I think Wetwired might just take it.”

Andrew: “I love Wetwired! You’ll probably be surprised at how high the episode ranks on my list… that said, 731 features one of my favorite scenes of the whole series. Tough call.”
