Buffy-Heroes Showdown, Lost-Walking Dead Duel as Bad Boy Bracket Continues!

Round 3 of TV’s Ultimate Bad Boy Bracket Tournament continues with four dudes who’ve witnessed some seriously messed-up moments in their time on this planet.

We’ve got Spike from Buffy the Vampire Slayer fighting Sylar from Heroes, and James ‘Sawyer’ Ford of Lost slugging it out against Daryl Dixon of The Walking Dead.

Every day for the next couple of weeks, we’ll kick off a new set of matchups in a single-elimination format that will whittle our field down to one ultimate champ. So make sure the right choice is made by heading down to our polls to vote for your favorites (Round 3 voting will be open for 48 hours), and hit the comments to justify your picks.

If you’re wondering what criteria we used to pick our players, we cast our net rather wide — including fellas who are dark and a little bit dangerous, truly good guys with naughty, maybe even promiscuous streaks, and actual evildoers who are nevertheless tough to root against. (We also put a cap of two cast members per show for the bracket, which meant some fan favorites had to warm the bench this time around.)
