Exclusive Clip: Get to Know the Gay Gals of “Girl in the Woods”

If there’s one thing gays universally love it’s a woman showing up in town from out of nowhere and recruiting her friends to fight against the monsters of literal hell that are trying to break free and destroy the world! This time it’s Peacock’s Girl in the Woods, in which a girl named Carrie (sus) arrives in the mining town of West Pine, Oregon, talking about cults and hellbeasts. Only this time Carrie (still sus) is queer! And we’ve got an exclusive clip to share with you. It’s from the third episode — all eight episodes drop tomorrow, October 21st, on the streamer — during a flashback.

Carrie (Stefanie Scott) and Sara (Kylie Liya Page) discuss Carrie’s performance. Sara then takes off a ribbon from her hair and ties it around Carrie’s wrist, a ribbon that Carrie holds significant throughout the show as a symbol of the love they share.

That sure is a stomach-flipping amount of soft skin brushes and GAYZING!

More from us, of course, once the episodes drop. Until then: If the apocalypse comes, beep me.
