Prophecy Girls: A Buffy Rewatch Podcast

S1E10: “Nightmares”

April 8, 2021

Students at Sunnydale High, including Buffy, Willow, and Xander, start to slip into waking dreams. It’s not too long before the walls of reality themselves start to blur and crumble. The secret to saving Sunnydale, and perhaps the world, might lie in the mind of a comatose boy who just wanted to play baseball. But to save the day, Buffy will have to confront her greatest fear.


Hear us discuss…

  • Stephanie tries to give Xander credit (and very nearly succeeds)

  • How this episode sets up the psychology of Buffy for the seasons to come


Shout out to the Becoming Buffy podcast for their comments and Jen Campbell, a YouTuber recommended by listener Chloe on issues of disability.
