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!).
ICE vs 4-D
Tony: “ICE, ice, baby.”
Carl: “ICE, of course. 4-D is one of the few Season 9 episodes that may have made round 2, had it been up against weaker opposition.”
Sarah: “I think if ICE doesn’t go through a lot of people will be so mad we’ll have to check them for worms.”
Paige: “This is so sad, I love 4-D but it won’t even chip away at Ice. Rightfully so, but bummer to lose that one in first round.”
Baz: “ICE will win, a very strong classic. Which is a shame because, as Carl and Paige said, 4-D is one of the stronger season 9 episodes.”
PUSHER vs APOCRYPHA
Tony: “PUSHER – not by a landslide but it should succeed. I’m eternally biased so will always hope for Pusher!”
Carl: “I think PUSHER will win as well. I’m a bit more confident than you – I think it will be clearly ahead once the votes are counted.”
Paige: “Yep, I think Pusher will pull past Apocrypha as well. I’ve never heard anyone say, Pusher, YUCK!”
Sarah: “Only when they’re talking about CARBO BOOST!”
Michael: “Definitely PUSHER.”
Baz: “PUSHER will win though APOCRYPHA is a great follow up to the already ‘through to round 2’ season 3 mythology episode PIPER MARU.”
