This is a hard one, since I really don't like either episode. Regardless, I've already made my vote.

Wow, two average Orange Iguanas episodes at best. I am not going to lie, this vote was way too easy for me. I voted for "Butch Cassidy" because I remember it much more than "Gordian Knot". I remember Paula and Matt being repeatedly called the "Comeback Kids", Matt's sweep of the Steps of Knowledge, the Orange Iguanas comeback in the third game with a controversial call, and the easy temple win. I am not even a fan of "Butch Cassidy" but I am voting for it because "Gordian Knot" was way too boring and forgettable. And at the end of the day, I will take an easy win over a flawed temple loss.

The winner is

THE SILVER HORSESHOE OF BUTCH CASSIDY


And I was the only one who picked against this episode. I really find this one highly overrated as the Orange Iguanas had the weird third game win barely. Then Paula gets a cakewalk layout, and apparently she is better than Missy from Lucky Pillow because Missy took a direct path and was slower [/youtube logic]. No! Paula is highly overrated, therefore I go against.

I am not a fan of Butch Cassidy in anyway, but I had to pick it over an episode that I hardly even know exists half of the time. And in Butch Cassidy's defense, the earlier rounds were a little interesting and memorable to me at least. And I will take the lame temple win over Gordian Knot's boring temple loss. It doesn't matter anyways because Butch Cassidy is going to be blown up by Sultan Saladin next round. ;)

But yeah, I don't see how this episode and Annie Taylor are related to each other. Aside from both teams coming back in the team game, these two episodes are on two different spectrum. Annie Taylor is much more memorable in every aspect than Butch Cassidy. Plus, Missy's win was better earned than Paula's. Paula's layout was basically an actuator journey through the temple. She wouldn't have finished with a lot of time if she had actual objectives like Missy.  :roll:

I second everything TRJ said. I can't believe people consider Paula a better player than Missy. Just because *gasp* she moved fast through all the rooms and *gasp* just because Matt is fast crossing a moat. And don't forget how people used to call Missy a bad player just because "she took a direct path." That only wasted what, 5 seconds? Missy was a better player in every aspect, and her temple win was way more deserving. But, this isn't about Lucky Pillow of course. This is about Silver Horseshoe, which I voted for over the utterly boring Gordian Knot. A highly debated episode with a cupcake layout gets my vote over a filler episode barely anyone remembers. But truth be told, I don't care for either episode. I wouldn't have cared who got eliminated, so I guess it really doesn't matter.
