    Some Statistics

    Number of nominated episodes per season in Round 1:

    Season 1- 7
    Season 2- 12
    Season 3- 15
    Season 4- 13
    Season 5- 10
    Season 6- 10
    Season 7- 7

    Number of episodes per season that have made it to Round 2:

    Season 1- 0
    Season 2- 3
    Season 3- 3
    Season 4- 2
    Season 5- 3
    Season 6- 2
    Season 7- 1

    Number of episodes per season that have made it through to Round 3:

    Season 1- 0
    Season 2- 1
    Season 3- 1
    Season 4- 2
    Season 5- 2
    Season 6- 1
    Season 7- 0

    What I find interesting is that Season 4 is often considered one of the weaker seasons within the show yet over half its episodes were nominated for this tournament. In fact Season 4 has more episodes nominated than Season 2 despite Season 2 being treated as the better season.

    Since it's been over 24 hours since anyone has voted, I'm thinking of announcing the result tonight instead of tomorrow. Therefore only just under 6 hours to vote if you haven't already! :D

    An honorary mention goes to Becoming Part 2 which led the first 2 rounds and the majority of the third before being pipped at the post by OMWF :D

    Tough loss for Becoming Part 2. I was convinced it would win all along.

    Isn't that everyone's dream? Also, that is by far the best definition of something to sing about I've ever seen.

    Congrats OMWF!

    This is a good winner. Not my personal favorite, but it used to be when I was younger so I always have such nostalgic feelings about it. I would invite friends over to watch it and we'd roleplay the roles and sing the songs! :)

    Again, @DeadlyDuo thanks for doing this!

    I can see why so many people love the episode. I love it too and it never fails to lift me if I'm a bit down. Just wouldn't be my choice personal.

    OWMF is my go-to episode when I want to watch some Buffy. (My second choice is "I Only Have Eyes for You".)
     
    Mr Trick: Well that's an interesting contrast. Both great episodes but in different ways.

    A lot of great episodes were nominated throughout this whole tournament, some of my top favourites making it right though and I'm pleased with the winner. Thanks to DeadlyDuo. :)

    How about a kind of battle tournament between the characters which would have to have 5 rounds. Round 1- People nominate 20 characters of their choosing. If their is a tie on points to get into the top 16, then there will be a mini tiebreaker battle before Round 2 starts. Round 2- The top 16 characters go to battle. Round 3- The 8 winners battle it out. Round 4- The 4 winners battle it out. Round 5- The two winners battle it out and the overall winner is announced.

    The characters thing could work as long as it had a different format to the one the board held awhile back.
