Season 8 Episode 15: Princess Camille is Here!


Theory time!

This episode was originally going to air as episode 14 under the name "Camille's Sick Day". However, the name was changed to "Smooching Cena". On the Wipeout Community Server there's been some discussion about this potentially being a season 9 episode airing with season 8.

https://www.tbs.com/shows/wipeout/season-1/episode-19/episode-207

This link, with a season 9 production code, redirects you to "Swole Daddy Issues", another episode that had it's episode title and description changed.

I know it's unlikely, but I wouldn't be surprised if we were getting a few episodes with the new course early. The thing that has almost sold me on this theory is the description changes. They replaced the teams in the descriptions with completely new teams and I don't see why they'd do that for no reason.

Re: Season 8 Episode 15: Smooching Cena


Okay, so I’m excited but a bit confused.

First of all, did you mean to name this episode 15 or 14? Next week would be 14 and if you’re saying this replace Camille’s Sick Day, this would presumably be numbered 14.

But if that was just a typo (or I’m missing something), then I’m pretty happy about this. If we’re going to be stuck with seven more episodes of the original course, better to mix in some new ones so it’s different each week. It does seem they’ve done this as the link you’ve given has “season 1 episode 19” in its name. So that’s definitely an episode that’ll air within the first 20 but with a new production code. So I would bet that they also did that this week - because they’ve obviously had the mindset to do it at all. Are those the only two that have had their description changed? But if there is a new course in three days, where the hell is the promotion for it?

On one hand, it looks like we’re entering a more exciting period of the show, at least for now. New course episodes and an interesting subplot in one of the original course episodes. But the descriptions being all about the contestants makes me fear that we’ll see the same lack of variation on the new course and be bored again.

It’s funny though, I’ve always thought of this second course as like a Summer season 4 course (I guess your Jiggleator prediction worked on me after all!), while the first course was more just a general season 5 course. And now, the course I think of as Summer season 4 will have the older, old-news course repeated sporadically throughout it, just like they did for Summer season 4.

I forgot to mention that episode 14 and 15 were swapped.

"Nips, Flips 'n' Dips" airs next Tuesday.

Re: Season 8 Episode 15: Smooching Cena


here's the link to episode 15 (Smooching Cena) with the "episode 205" path segment

https://www.tbs.com/shows/wipeout/season-1/episode-14/episode-205

if all this speculation that we could be getting season 2 episodes (three of them based on the three episodes that had title/description changes) this early is correct, then on one hand I'd be excited that we're at least getting *some* variation in the remaining season 1 episodes--but at the same time, this probably means that by the time season 2 airs, we'll basically be left with nothing we haven't already seen (if all of season 2's episodes ends up being the same course a la season 1).

Who knows, maybe we're all delusional about getting a season 2 episode early and we'll end up getting a normal episode after all lol

Re: Season 8 Episode 15: Smooching Cena


Hey, minerboi! Welcome to Keshi Heads and glad to see a new face join in this discussion.

Thanks for linking too. I agree with you, it'll be a shame if this really is our last blast in terms of new stuff. I'm really just hoping there is a bit more variation (even if that means using the first obstacles only three times instead of five and modifying one of the obstacles in the second half of the Qualifier every couple weeks, for instance). Of course, three times would be unlikely for a 10-episode run, but you get my point. I'm not asking for the show to even be variated throughout the episode (though that would be amazing), but a couple of changes each week would make things so much better.

I definitely think you guys are onto something here. Should make things a bit more interesting for the next month or so.

Re: Season 8 Episode 15: Smooching Cena


so TBS swapped episodes (again)

episode 15 is now "Princess Camille is Here" and Smooching Cena was bumped another week to episode 16.

Princess Camille Is Here is supposedly another season 9 episode so either way I think we were getting a new course regardless.

Re: Season 8 Episode 15: Smooching Cena


Lol, shuffling two episodes that probably feel exactly the same. All of the titles are so random - either about the Big Balls, a host or some generic catchphrase. I guess that's what happens when your course never changes, though most of the original episodes (that weren't specials) were named after a running gag or theme anyway.

Hopefully both episodes have different starting obstacles so then we'll have *gasps* four consecutive episodes of different starters. Though then we'll have nothing to look forward to. I wonder (assuming it's 20 episodes again) if since they're changing things up a bit with the mixing, will we still get two starter pairs now and two later on (in the Summer/Fall) or will they just mix all the different episodes together regardless which starter?

If there's more changes made during this block it may be good to jump around all 20 more - but if it's just the starter changing (occasionally) again then maybe saving two new starters for later is better.

Being that this version is what it is, it’s the day of a new course (right?) and yesterday we get a montage of the sledgehammer we’ve already seen and today we get a clip from the old course with no obstacles about women empowerment. Screw women empowerment, advertise the actual course!*

*For legal reasons, that was a joke emoticon

Re: Season 8 Episode 15: Princess Camille is Here!


Well, unfortunately this episode isn't a new course one. It actually was the original "Camille's Sick Day", just renamed to the princess thing. Not sure of the reasoning there - and the title is ironic for the one and only episode that she's actually not "here"! Well, this makes me think the Smooching Cena will be another renamed episode - or perhaps was just ANOTHER name for this same episode.

Quite weird though as the Instagram says "tune in for new obstacles" (although we all know they don't put much effort into social media) emoticon Is the TBS site just wrong?

The silver lining is I'm glad we can still joke about getting sick without it being taken "in poor taste", AND Spin Cycle does have a foam variation (though it never showed in my preview).
