Prophecy Girls: A Buffy Rewatch Podcast

S1E04: “Teacher’s Pet”

March 18, 2021

After the disturbing death of a teacher who had the gall to be kind to Buffy, the substitute teacher is hot for students. Especially male students like Xander. But Buffy might have other problems, because Angel is back to warn her of a dangerous old enemy of the Master’s in town.


Hear us discuss…

Totally inappropriate teacher–student relationships, ew! This is such a horny episode, in the worst possible way. Fortunately, Buffy and Willow come through. Also, the existence of a “she-mantis” monster raises interesting questions, both about the nature of monsters in the Buffyverse, and whether or not this show is Othering female sexuality. What do you think?


Trigger warnings

Rape, sexual abuse of a minor
