In this episode of the Boys, Stormfront sees Homelander’s narcissism and raises her own psychopathy, the Deep tries really, really hard to get back in the Seven, and Hughie and Butcher have a heart-to-heart next to a heart.
Though this ended up being a very fun episode in the style of the Boys, it started off kind of boring and slow. I wasn’t sure if the Boys had maybe lost some of it’s flair from the first season, but about halfway through the episode everything ramps up significantly and it becomes something awesome with maybe one of my favorite scenes ever involving a whale. It takes a bit to get there though but hopefully this is a sign of being over this particular hump for this season of the “part of the show when nothing is happening…” but with the coronavirus, who knows what more boring things will come?
Also, I’ve started watching the aftershow for this “Inside the Boys” or something like that and for this episode they had Karen Fukuhara, the actress who plays Komiko on the show, and she is the exact opposite of her character in real life. That makes me like this character, and Fukuhara herself, a whole lot more than I did before. I mean, she was good just didn’t stand out as much as Butcher or Homelander to me before now.
+10: What a great show! I’m so excited to watch more!
-2.5: Oh right, it was boring before that helicopter crashes about halfway in…
+1: Karen Fukuhara is a great actress!
