Prophecy Girls: A Buffy Rewatch Podcast

S1E06: “The Pack”

March 25, 2021

A trip to the zoo leaves Xander acting strange—well, stranger than usual for a horny teenage boy. He and his new group of friends think they rule the school. It’s up to Buffy, Willow, and Giles to save Xander from his animal self before he crosses lines that shouldn’t be crossed.

 

Hear us discuss…

The absolute lack of class supervision on a field trip. Also, bullying, of course. And this is an episode with some extremely racist content. Hey, is Giles ok with all this head trauma? Finally, Kara and Stephanie both dig deep into how poorly this episode handles issues of rape culture, masculinity, and sexual assault.

 

Trigger warnings

Animal death, bullying, implied cannibalism, racism, sexual assault/rape
