Prophecy Girls: A Buffy Rewatch Podcast
S3E15: ”Consequences”

S3E15: ”Consequences”

January 27, 2022

Faith and Buffy’s walk on the wild side ended with them becoming stone cold killers. Poor Deputy Mayor Allen Finch met his end at the end of Faith’s stake, and Faith does not want to deal. Buffy, on the other hand, might be dealing too much. Never fear, one man and one man alone will step up to give Faith the help she needs—we’re talking about Wesley, of course.

 

Hear us discuss…

  • Daddy Giles knows best
  • Xander needs to zip up more than his pants
  • RIP to another great Buffy villain!
  • So much quality Angel lurking
  • Doesn’t Wesley have anything British to be doing?

S3E14: ”Bad Girls”

January 20, 2022

Faith is back and badder than ever, and this time she’s looking for Buffy to join her team—if you catch our drift. While Buffy takes a ride on the wild side of Slaying, a new Watcher arrives in town (but he’s totally not evil this time, promise), the Mayor marks a milestone in his evil plans, and a demon and his vampire minions scope out a location for a new bathhouse.

 

Hear us discuss…

  • Faith is hopefully regretting her horny turn towards Xander
  • We are not regretting the Faith/Buffy subtext tho
  • Wesley is delightfully awkward
  • The Mayor is delightfully evil
  • Angel is just delightful

 

Trigger warnings

Ableism, death, fatphobia

January 13, 2022

Xander Harris just wants to be cool. But what is his thing? He’s tried watching girls while they change, cheating on his girlfriend with his best friend, and generally not taking responsibility for his fragile masculinity. Nothing has worked! Then he gets a car and some zombie friends, and suddenly, things are turning up Xander. So of course the world is ending.

 

Hear us discuss…

  • … NOT slandering Xander, for once!
  • Willow getting bolder in her use of magic
  • Guess everyone’s forgiven Giles?
  • Since when are there gangs in Sunnydale?
  • The cake is a lie

Bullying, death

Bonus! Twilight (2008) Movie Review

Bonus! Twilight (2008) Movie Review

December 28, 2021

Once upon a time, another Stephenie was also obsessed with vampires. Sexy vampires that glitter! But not so sexy you’d actually have sex with them before marriage, because that’s wrong. This Stephenie wrote a book that became a movie that became a phenomenon known as the Twilight series. The plot? Girl meets boy, boy is a bloodsucking fiend, boy has to help girl flee other bloodsucking fiends who aren’t good vegetarians like him. Truly a tale as old as time.

 

Hear us discuss…

  • The metric tonne of pretty privilege at work here
  • Kristen Stewart’s pitch-perfect portrayal of teen girl horniness
  • Woman power behind the camera, and why we need more of it
  • These vampires are so silly and it’s great
  • Did Joyce write this movie? Because this movie is tripping balls

S3E12: ”Helpless”

December 23, 2021

The Watchers’ Council woke up this morning and chose violence. Literally. While Buffy is dreaming of ice shows with daddy, Daddy Giles injects her with a suspicious substance. Coincidentally, Buffy’s powers begin to wane. It’s all part of a plan to test the Slayer by sending her into a deadly situation de-powered and utterly betrayed. Worst. Birthday present. Ever.

 

Hear us discuss…

  • The betrayal of fathers, biological and otherwise
  • Oh Faith, where art thou?
  • Our discomfort with a lot of the choices in this ep
  • Buffy is a serious badass with or without Slayer powers!
  • The real enemy, as usual, is the patriarchy

Joyce’s attempt support Buffy’s Slaying by bringing her dinner in a bag is cut short by the discovery of two murdered children. Scarred, Joyce creates an army of moms to take back Sunnydale from the witches and Slayers. And if she and Willow’s mom have to burn their daughters at the stake to do that, well, that’s a small price to pay for avenging the deaths of these two children no one had ever seen before.

 

Hear us discuss…

  • We learn Willow’s mom’s name rather quickly!
  • We will never tire of Buffy calling out Xander’s BS
  • The funniest name for the Devil

S3E10: ”Amends”

S3E10: ”Amends”

December 9, 2021

It’s the most wonderful time of the year … to feel guilty about murdering hundreds of people over the course of your undead lifetime. At first Angel tries to deal with this on his own, but when Buffy gets involved via her dreams, she and the rest of the Scoobies resolve to help him. Something is amplifying Angel’s guilt, and whatever it is won’t rest until Angel succumbs to his evil within … or takes himself out of the picture, forever.

 

Hear us discuss…

  • Buffy can’t pull off baby bangs. No one can.
  • Snow-less Cali Christmases are weird to these two Canadians
  • “Maybe you shouldn’t help” should be Xander’s motto!
  • At least Buffy and Angel can get it on in their dreams?
  • This ending is one of the heaviest to date

Sexual assault, suicide ideation/attempted suicide

S3E09: ”The Wish”

December 2, 2021

Cordelia is back and she’s over Xander Harris. So over him that she definitely isn’t pretending to kiss other boys or talking about him constantly. Eventually, she talks to the wrong (or right?) person, new girl Anya who shares Cordy’s love for designer labels but also happens to be a demon out to grant wishes of revenge. Cordelia’s wish that Buffy had never come to Sunnydale catapults her through the looking glass into a twisted version of her hometown … and Xander and Willow are still into each other! This girl cannot catch a break.

 

Hear us discuss…

  • So you’re just going to leave that demon corpse there?
  • We cannot with Xander’s revisionist history
  • All these actors are so old!
  • We are here for queer-coded vamp Willow
  • Steph is ready to be Asian Anya in the reboot CALL HER

It’s your boy, Spike, back in town to wreak havoc and … feel sorry for himself? That’s right, the bad boy has been reduced to emo boy after being dumped by Dru. Circumstances conspire to cause him to kidnap Xander and Willow in the hopes that Willow can cast a love spell that brings Dru back to him. The clock is ticking for Angel and Buffy to find her friends—but Cordelia and Oz beat them to it, with devastating consequences.

 

Hear us discuss…

  • We just love that Spike is back
  • Angel is being a supportive bf
  • In fact, everyone is being super supportive of Buffy, yay!
  • Willow seriously needs to learn about consent
