Prophecy Girls: A Buffy Rewatch Podcast

S2E21: ”Becoming, Part 1”

September 16, 2021

Archaeologists unwittingly uncover exactly what Angelus needs to prove he is the Biggest Baddest of all—by sucking the entire world into Hell. Although a chance discovery leads to the recovery of Jenny Calendar’s translated Ritual of Restoration, Willow isn’t sure she can restore Angel’s soul in time. Buffy must make her move—and kill Angel, if necessary, to save the world. Meanwhile, we learn more about how Angel became a vampire and the events that brought him to Sunnydale and Buffy’s life.


Hear us discuss…

  • Angel’s journey from villain to hero to villain again
  • Surely Willow’s newfound love of black magic is safe
  • Say what you will about Xander: he’s never afraid to be the biggest jerk
  • Always have a spare sword, duh.
  • Kendra’s back, yay—oh. Oh my. Never mind
