In this episode, the Boys go into hiding, Starlight discovers everything, and Butcher kills someone.
The show is really ramping up the plot in this second-to-last episode of season one. It’s making for a very exciting and revealing episode, complete with a few flashbacks to shed some light on Butcher’s past and hint at what really happened to his wife. I also like Homelander digging deeper into his past, it’s always interesting to me to see how supervillains are created.
I also enjoy how Maeve’s character has developed. I see now that she’s not a narcissist but instead someone who’s just been so ruthlessly gaslighted by Homelander that she’s basically given up on herself. It’s sad, really, since Homelander is basically evil Superman and under the rule of his iron fist there’s really no saying “no” to him.
+10: A very well-done episode that sets up the next episode in an exciting way
