DAY 15! (Results from yesterday can be found here.)
Today, we reach the quarter-finals. We're fast approaching a final. Who will be in it? Over the past couple of days, we've had polls with single figure votes separating the episodes - one poll with ONE vote in it. This competition is getting close folks, so keep the votes coming! Your vote will matter! (Note: if you check back the NCIS-Grey's Anatomy poll and the Game of Thrones-Arrow poll will both be as ties. Unfortunately, Polldaddy reopened the polls and by the time I closed them again, the votes had changed. The results that you see in the spreadsheet are accurate.)
The rules are as follows:
1. Two episodes go head to head for 24 hours. The episode that emerges as winner will go through to the next round.
2. Vote for your favourite episode, and tell us what you voted for.
3. Tell others about the competition.
4. Be respectful. This is a competition, but be friendly.
We begin the quarter-finals with two heavyweights. The Mentalist's 'My Blue Heaven', which has so far taken out Dracula, Bones and Supernatural, faces Game of Thrones's 'The Rains of Castamere', which has made it through against Pretty Little Liars, Supernatural and most recently, Arrow's 'Sacrifice' by only two votes. Next, Arrow's 'The Scientist', which has had arguably the toughest route, battling Breaking Bad's 'Felina' and 'Ozymandias', along with The Blacklist's 'Anslo Garrick'. It is up against Beauty and the Beast's 'Kidnapped', which triumphed over Once Upon a Time before beating Fringe's 'An Enemy of Fate' and 'The Boy Must Live'.
We then move on and see Castle's 'Still', which has taken out The Good Wife, The Walking Dead and the ever popular Beauty and the Beast, and that faces Person of Interest's 'The Devil's Share' - which previously beat Grey's Anatomy, How I Met Your Mother and NCIS. Finally, The Mentalist's 'Red John', having beaten Criminal Minds, How I Met Your Mother and Revenge, faces Person of Interest's 'The Crossing', which has taken out Game of Thrones, Homeland and NCIS.
Don’t forget to share the poll; the more people vote, the more chance your episode has of winning!
Check back tomorrow for the semi-finals!
