S3E21: ”Graduation Day, Part 1”

March 17, 2022

The Mayor’s ascension approaches, and the Scoobies are still in the dark as to how to stop it. They know one thing: it’s going down at the graduation ceremony. Any possibility of a new plan is derailed, however, when a well-aimed arrow poisons Angel. Good news: there’s a cure! Bad news: it will require Buffy to make an ultimate sacrifice.

 

Hear us discuss…

  • How real the yearbooks and grad stuff feels
  • Does Xander see Anya as a person?
  • Does the Mayor really love Faith?
  • Buffy and Angel’s awkward post-breakup feels
  • How far is too far to save your vampire ex—asking for Steph

The Prophecy Girls interview Kendare Blake, author of In Every Generation along with a trove of original fantasy novels. Blake’s new novel from Disney Hyperion takes us to New Sunnydale, 16 years after the town collapsed into the Hellmouth and Buffy turned every Potential into a Slayer. But when a tragedy leaves all the Slayers missing and presumed dead, Frankie Rosenberg, Willow’s daughter, discovers that in addition to being a witch she might be the new—and only—Slayer.

 

Hear us discuss…

  • What it was like to pick up the Buffy mantle
  • Kendare’s thoughts on the importance of Buffy today
  • How Kendare has made it possible for James Marsters to play Spike again
  • What you might expect from the other books in the trilogy
  • Why moving in with your parents can help your writing career

S3E19: ”Choices”

S3E19: ”Choices”

February 24, 2022

While Faith and the Mayor continue to bond over evil, Buffy is tired of waiting for her enemies to come to her. If she’s ever going to get out of Sunnydale, she needs to take the fight to them. But a heist on City Hall leaves Willow at the mercy of the Mayor and Faith. Buffy’s choices are looking ever more constrained. Meanwhile, Snyder gets suspicious of lunches.

 

Hear us discuss…

  • Willow is high octane awesome in this episode
  • Just how many colleges are these people applying to?
  • What’s in the box
  • We do enjoy when Buffy takes charge

S3E18: ”Earshot”

S3E18: ”Earshot”

February 17, 2022

After a close call with a mouthless demon, Buffy starts to hear the thoughts of everyone around her—yes, including Xander, and yes, he’s thinking what you think he would be. Just as the torrent of thoughts threaten to overwhelm her, Buffy hears one thought loud and clear: “This time tomorrow, I will kill you all.” Soon the Scoobies set off on a search across school for a possible shooter, while the Slayer lies in bed, awaiting a cure that might never come.

 

Hear us discuss…

  • This ep belongs earlier in the season
  • And these demons belong in season 1
  • Where’s our exposition, Giles??
  • Cordelia has NO filter and she is our queen
  • We would drink blue kool-aid if Angel asked us to

S3E17: ”Enemies”

S3E17: ”Enemies”

February 10, 2022

Buffy and Faith were allies, and then they were frenemies, and now they are totes enemies! How can you tell? Well, if Faith’s sketchy behaviour in general wasn’t already a dead giveaway, consider her failed attempt to seduce Angel so he would lose his soul. Fortunately for her and unfortunately for Buffy, the Mayor brings in a ringer to wrest away Angel’s soul by magic and make Buffy’s worst nightmare come true. Don’t worry though, because Wesley is on the case!

 

 

Hear us discuss…

  • The Fuffy subtext is strong
  • Some demons can be good, if a little greedy
  • Faith ruined Angel’s best top!
  • We live for Angel punching Xander
  • Cordelia back with the Scoobies for any reason = perfection

S3E16: ”Doppelgangland”

S3E16: ”Doppelgangland”

February 3, 2022

Willow is tired of being the reliable one: the reliable friend, reliable tutor, reliable Wicca. Why should Buffy be the only one who gets to be a bad girl and an accessory to murder? Willow can eat her banana whenever she wants, even outside of lunchtime! Thanks to a misstep with Anya, Willow gets a chance to see what she would truly be like as a bad girl—and Oz and the rest of her friends think they have lost her forever.

 

Hear us discuss…

  • Snyder’s exploitation of Willow continues
  • Faith now has what we all want: a PlayStation
  • Poor Anya just wants to do vengeance again
  • Finally, Cordelia gets the chance to say her piece!
  • WILLOW. ROSENBERG?

S3E15: ”Consequences”

S3E15: ”Consequences”

January 27, 2022

Faith and Buffy’s walk on the wild side ended with them becoming stone cold killers. Poor Deputy Mayor Allen Finch met his end at the end of Faith’s stake, and Faith does not want to deal. Buffy, on the other hand, might be dealing too much. Never fear, one man and one man alone will step up to give Faith the help she needs—we’re talking about Wesley, of course.

 

Hear us discuss…

  • Daddy Giles knows best
  • Xander needs to zip up more than his pants
  • RIP to another great Buffy villain!
  • So much quality Angel lurking
  • Doesn’t Wesley have anything British to be doing?

S3E14: ”Bad Girls”

S3E14: ”Bad Girls”

January 20, 2022

Faith is back and badder than ever, and this time she’s looking for Buffy to join her team—if you catch our drift. While Buffy takes a ride on the wild side of Slaying, a new Watcher arrives in town (but he’s totally not evil this time, promise), the Mayor marks a milestone in his evil plans, and a demon and his vampire minions scope out a location for a new bathhouse.

 

Hear us discuss…

  • Faith is hopefully regretting her horny turn towards Xander
  • We are not regretting the Faith/Buffy subtext tho
  • Wesley is delightfully awkward
  • The Mayor is delightfully evil
  • Angel is just delightful
