September Silliness Buffy Episode Tournament: The Elite Eight


Just 8 episodes left! This Buffy episode tournament has really brought the surprises along the way. I thought I knew this fandom, I really did. After that last round, I'm kind of in shock. Let's review what happened in The Sweet Sixteen:

"Restless" beat "Consequences" clean and simple
"Becoming Part 2" beat "The Gift." Wow, "Becoming 2" is the ultimate game changing episode of the entire series, imo...but I never would've thought "The Gift" wouldn't make the top 8. "Becoming 2" better take the whole tourney after that drama.
"Hush" totally beat up "This Year's Girl" Story-wise, not sure I agree but I do get it.
"Innocence" edged out "Graduation Day pt 2" but it was very close.
"Becoming pt. 1" beat "Prophecy Girl" putting both of the eps in that particular 2-parter in the Elite 8!
"Once More, With Feeling" beat the epic writing and acting that is "The Body"...that was a toughie.
"Doppelgangland" beat "Surprise" aaaand now I'm really confused
and finally
"Tabula Rasa" took out "Band Candy." Well, the southeast Region "England" has always been the silliest of September Silliness

A few fun stats about The Elite Eight. Of the remaining episodes:
