Prophecy Girls: A Buffy Rewatch Podcast

S2E05: “Reptile Boy”

May 27, 2021

Cordelia has a problem: if she wants to attend a frat party, she needs Buffy to come along. Buffy has a problem: Angel doesn’t want to go on a date with her! Xander has a problem: no one cares about how much he isn’t over Buffy. There’s a lot of problems in this episode, but don’t worry, because you know what solves all problems? Ritual human sacrifice to a lizard lord.


Hear us discuss…

  • Shut up about how much you hate Angel, Xander
  • This episode’s entirely unsubtle metaphor for date rape
  • Who’s the true reptile boy here?
  • Willow, go off, girl!
  • The swift, unyielding justice that is Sunnydale


Trigger warnings

Date rape, drug abuse, kidnapping, sexual assault
