Prophecy Girls: A Buffy Rewatch Podcast
S4E7: ”The Initiative”

S4E7: ”The Initiative”

May 19, 2022

Riley Finn thinks Buffy Summers is “peculiar.” If she wanted to go out with him, well … that wouldn’t be so bad. Unfortunately, Riley’s lusty wrong feelings are complicated by his role as a military commando in the top-secret Initiative. He and his frat boy grad student soldier buddies have to hunt down an escaped Hostile—but Buffy is also hunting this familiar, bleach-blonde vampire. Who will get to Spike first?

 

Hear us discuss…

  • Buffy doesn’t know her own strength
  • Ugh, Parker, please disappear into a deep, dark hole
  • Willow and Riley in cahoots!! So adorable.
  • Spike: always hilarious, always making us uncomfy
  • OK, but DO flares ricochet??

S4E6: ”Wild at Heart”

S4E6: ”Wild at Heart”

May 12, 2022

When Oz encounters another werewolf—a female werewolf—on campus, it throws his and Willow’s entire relationship into question. As Willow senses Oz drifting away from her, she wrestles with how to win him back. But Oz’s deepest fear might soon be made real: maybe the wolf inside is just too strong to be won.

 

Hear us discuss…

  • Is this the new saddest episode of the show?
  • Willow is trying so hard and we can’t. We can’t.
  • We’re not here to kink-shame Professor Walsh, but …
  • Xander not only being unslanderable but giving GOOD ADVICE now?
  • Oz is still our bestest boy but he’s so in the wrong here

S4E5: ”Beer Bad”

S4E5: ”Beer Bad”

May 5, 2022

Buffy sad. Parker bad. Willow mad. Beer foamy. Xander … heroic? All bets are off as the Scoobies get a taste of campus pub life, from alcohol to bad philosophy and irresponsible bartenders. Everyone get ready to drown your sorrows, or your triumphs, or whatever you’re feeling. Underage drinking has come to UC Sunnydale!

 

Hear us discuss…

  • It’s a season 1 episode in season 4!
  • We got what we asked for: more campus life
  • Parker vs Willow? We know where to place our bets
  • What is going on with Willow and Oz?
  • Xander is verging on heroic and we’re shook

S4E4: ”Fear, Itself”

S4E4: ”Fear, Itself”

April 28, 2022

It’s Halloween again in Sunnydale, and that means House Party: Peeled Grapes Edition. Thanks to some ignorant frat boys scrawling a demonic summoning on the attic floor (and Xander not bothering to stop them), this party is more “scary” than “sexy.” The Scoobies must get over their fears in time to stop Gaknar, Lord of Nightmares. Is there a Slayer in the house?

 

Hear us discuss…

  • Buffy not being over Parker (or Angel?)
  • Is Willow’s enthusiasm for magic getting the best of her?
  • Anya’s greatest fear: bunnies OR losing Xander?
  • Giles with a chainsaw?? SWOON.
  • Why Gaknar is the bestest little demon, oh yes he is, yes he is!

S4E3: ”The Harsh Light of Day”

S4E3: ”The Harsh Light of Day”

April 21, 2022

Guess who’s back in Sunnydale? It’s Harmony! Oh, and Spike is there too. Looking for some gem … thing … it’s not important. What matters is that Harmony is back, she’s got fangs and France pangs. She’ll stop at nothing to get what she desires. But while Spike fixates on the Slayer, Buffy fixates on her new crush: Parker Abrams, grade A dick—and not in the good way.

 

Hear us discuss…

  • We love the new, mature girl talk!
  • Buffy doing the walk of shame! You go, girl.
  • Xander and Anya are doing … something.
  • Once again Xander is FAR FROM the worst dude in this episode!
  • Ok but is it seriously 5 miles to campus?

S4E2: ”Living Conditions”

S4E2: ”Living Conditions”

April 14, 2022

Buffy has her groove back—almost. Her roommate, Kathy, is intolerable: playing Cher on repeat, flossing too loudly, sitting with Buffy and her friends, wearing Buffy’s sweater without asking … the list goes on. There’s only one conclusion: Kathy must be EVIL. What’s a Slayer gonna do, but slay?

 

Welcome to Kathy on Trial.

 

Hear us discuss…

  • Get a new CD already, Kathy
  • Roommate code and girl code
  • Oz is the sweetest in this episode
  • Xander … still isn’t that annoying? What is happening?
  • Why do Buffy’s friends still not believe her from the start?

S4E1: ”The Freshman”

S4E1: ”The Freshman”

April 7, 2022

Buffy heads to UC Sunnydale, even if she isn’t sure which classes she’s taking. Life on campus seems so overwhelming at first: so many events, a new roommate, patronizing profs. Then the first nice guy she meets barely notices her in favour of Willow, and the second one turns into a vampire! This year is off to a great start.

 

Hear us discuss…

  • The realistic portrayal of the freshman experience
  • Steph’s got some stories about college!
  • With one big exception, Xander … isn’t bad in this one?
  • Drink every time you hear "Maggie Walsh"
  • Giles is getting some!

S3E22: ”Graduation Day, Part 2”

S3E22: ”Graduation Day, Part 2”

March 24, 2022

With Faith out of the picture, Buffy has no choice but to sacrifice herself to save Angel by having him drink from her (because he is, you might recall, a vampire). Fortunately, Angel avoids draining Buffy completely, and a quick trip to Sunnydale ER and she is good as new! (The same cannot be said for Faith.) Buffy has a plan to take down the Mayor, but it requires everyone’s cooperation, flamethrowers, and a lot of explosives. The Scoobies might survive high school, but will high school survive them?

 

Hear us discuss…

  • How efficient is Sunnydale Hospital?
  • So. Many. Great. Spin-Off. Ideas!
  • Oz and Willow deserve all the sex they can squeeze into tonight
  • Cordelia and Wesley’s epic KISS
  • RIP so many great recurring characters!
