End of Round 2! MARCH MADNESS 2013: "Most Shocking Moment" of the Whedonverse Tourney

OK, we're on to the second half of Round 2 and this tourney is getting tense! Basically, we've weeded out some of the less shocking moments and all that's left from here on out is doom and gloom! I mean, really...who's idea was this again? 

If you're just joining us, this year's tourney begs the question: What is the most dramatically shocking moment of the Whedonverse? The times that made you shake your fist in the air and scream "Joss!!" Here's a recap of the last part:

1. "You think you are Jenny Calendar now!!?" Not anymore. Darla got resurrected but Jenny was a Gypsy no longer. Doesn't really seem fair! Winner: Angel snaps Jenny Calendar's neck!

2. This Angel murdering thing just won't quit! Even Spike's ultimate(ish) sacrifice couldn't stop Angel from his reign of terror in this tourney. Winner: Angel snaps Giles' neck!

3. Poor Lorne. He's not a killer. And Wes having Justine locked in the closet really wasn't so out of character by that point in his crazy. Winner: Lorne murders Lindsay!

4. Spike got a soul but Wash speared to death. Oh Joss, what did you do? Winner: Wash's death.

5. I actually really thought Angel trying to suffocate Wes with that pillow was going to make it to the Sweet 16, but apparently people are still mourning Doyle. It was pretty shocking, especially being so early in his story. Winner: Doyle's sacrifice

6. It was Anya vs Anya in this battle! Poor Anya, she was socially awkward but not sure she deserved all this. Winner: Anya's death.

7. Cordy ascending to higher powerdom was pretty ridiculous and is definitely no match for THE EYE! Winner: Xander loses a damn eye!

8. Shockingly, Wes getting his throat sliced by Justine gave people the "Joss!" more than Buffy's first death. Well, it did only last a second and that "Father will kill the son" arc was cray. Winner: Wesley's throat slice!


OK, last part of Round 2! Voting ends this Thursday, March 21st at 11:59 pm EST.

Obviously there are **Major Spoilers** ahead in this tourney. If you're not familiar with all things Whedon, tread lightly or avoid.

Here is the Region 2b Battle, taking place on the east side of the bracket (Stark Headquarters/The Hyperion).

I'm predicting a "Tara's death" vs "Joyce's death" in the semi final...(Joyce's wins hopefully)

Ooooh.... I think the winner could be Tara's death, Joyce's death, or Wash's death. I could see any of those sweeping this whole thing!

To all those that chose Willow flaying Warren over Bennett's death, I hate you. So much. You probably didn't even watch Dollhouse.

I watched Dollhouse, but I watched it last out of the Whedonverse. At that point, Joss killing off characters didn't come as much of a shock to me anymore. ...But when Warren was flayed - I knew there would something bad was coming, but not like that. My Joss-newbie self was not prepared!
