EPISODE 6: THE SONG OF THE HYENAS (S01E06 "The Pack”)

 
 
It’s devastating. He’s turned into a 16 year old boy. Of course you’ll have to kill him.
— Rupert Giles

This week the Boys are watching S01E06 "The Pack", an episode second only to the Lion King in the controversy it caused for the hyena community and their allies.

Also, the dark gods of 'better podcast audio' answer our blood sacrifice! Woo!

Key Buffy Bits from this episode include:

  • Reclaiming queer coded villains

  • Evil Frasier Crane (i.e. just Frasier Crane?)

  • The resilient femininity of Willow Rosenberg

  • The dynamics of gendered power in genre fiction

  • “I didn't say she looked better than you, I said she looked better."
