Welcome to ‘Shiptober 2019! Throughout the month of October, CarterMatt will be bringing you our annual tournament featuring some of best ‘ships in all of TV. What is a ‘ship? It is comprised of characters you want to see together romantically. Maybe they’re already together, or maybe they’ve never been together. It doesn’t matter. ‘Shipping is one of the most popular parts of any TV fandom, it’s super fun and this tournament is a celebration of that.
For today’s ‘ship battle, we’ve got a couple of popular pairs who know a thing or two about helping others. Is it ironic that one of the two contains the devil in Lucifer Morningstar? Probably, but look at the evidence from the Netflix series. It certainly seems to fit the bill for him. Today, Lucifer & Chloe are squaring off against Bobby & Athena from 9-1-1. One of them is going to have a chance to move forward to the third round, but we’re hoping for an intense battle first!
Voting Rules – Voting will be underway in the poll below from now until Saturday, October 19 at 1:00 p.m. Pacific time. Vote however often you’d like! (For more voting instructions or technical questions, check out the bottom of this article for answers.)
Be sure that you subscribe to CarterMatt on YouTube — there are frequent video discussions there for many of the shows discussed in this tournament!
Bobby & Athena, 9-1-1 (#6 seed) – What sort of tests are coming their way through the rest of season 3? We’re curious to learn a lot more about their future, especially since there haven’t been too many recent opportunities to explore some of this. They’ve been busy doing a little something otherwise known as protecting all of Santa Monica after the floods, but now, they have a chance to move forward and showcase what their life as a married couple is like. We already have a feeling that it will be crazy!
Lucifer & Chloe, Lucifer (#2 seed) – Meanwhile, with Deckerstar at the moment they’re just working to find a way to be back in each other’s orbit! The love that they have feels clear at this point. However, the same goes for the obstacles. Think about some of what they’re up against here as they have to try and make it back to each other. We’re expecting a lot of drama and even a little bit of pain after all they’ve gone through … but don’t we deserve some chances for Deckerstar smiles at the same time? Getting to see them together before the series ends would be all sorts of perfect.
