Prophecy Girls: A Buffy Rewatch Podcast
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?

Assault, death

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?

 

Trigger warnings

Sexual assault

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

 

Trigger warnings

Ableism, death, fatphobia

S3E13: ”The Zeppo”

January 13, 2022

Xander Harris just wants to be cool. But what is his thing? He’s tried watching girls while they change, cheating on his girlfriend with his best friend, and generally not taking responsibility for his fragile masculinity. Nothing has worked! Then he gets a car and some zombie friends, and suddenly, things are turning up Xander. So of course the world is ending.

 

Hear us discuss…

  • … NOT slandering Xander, for once!
  • Willow getting bolder in her use of magic
  • Guess everyone’s forgiven Giles?
  • Since when are there gangs in Sunnydale?
  • The cake is a lie

Bonus! Twilight (2008) Movie Review

Bonus! Twilight (2008) Movie Review

December 28, 2021

Once upon a time, another Stephenie was also obsessed with vampires. Sexy vampires that glitter! But not so sexy you’d actually have sex with them before marriage, because that’s wrong. This Stephenie wrote a book that became a movie that became a phenomenon known as the Twilight series. The plot? Girl meets boy, boy is a bloodsucking fiend, boy has to help girl flee other bloodsucking fiends who aren’t good vegetarians like him. Truly a tale as old as time.

 

Hear us discuss…

  • The metric tonne of pretty privilege at work here
  • Kristen Stewart’s pitch-perfect portrayal of teen girl horniness
  • Woman power behind the camera, and why we need more of it
  • These vampires are so silly and it’s great
  • Did Joyce write this movie? Because this movie is tripping balls

 

Trigger warnings

Blood, immolation, sexual harassment

S3E12: ”Helpless”

S3E12: ”Helpless”

December 23, 2021

The Watchers’ Council woke up this morning and chose violence. Literally. While Buffy is dreaming of ice shows with daddy, Daddy Giles injects her with a suspicious substance. Coincidentally, Buffy’s powers begin to wane. It’s all part of a plan to test the Slayer by sending her into a deadly situation de-powered and utterly betrayed. Worst. Birthday present. Ever.

 

Hear us discuss…

  • The betrayal of fathers, biological and otherwise
  • Oh Faith, where art thou?
  • Our discomfort with a lot of the choices in this ep
  • Buffy is a serious badass with or without Slayer powers!
  • The real enemy, as usual, is the patriarchy

 

Trigger warnings

Drug use (forced), kidnapping, sexual harassment, torture

S3E11: ”Gingerbread”

December 16, 2021

Joyce’s attempt support Buffy’s Slaying by bringing her dinner in a bag is cut short by the discovery of two murdered children. Scarred, Joyce creates an army of moms to take back Sunnydale from the witches and Slayers. And if she and Willow’s mom have to burn their daughters at the stake to do that, well, that’s a small price to pay for avenging the deaths of these two children no one had ever seen before.

 

Hear us discuss…

  • We learn Willow’s mom’s name rather quickly!
  • We will never tire of Buffy calling out Xander’s BS
  • The funniest name for the Devil
  • Angel’s heroic pep talk
  • Where is our gingerbread? LIES!
