The Boys are back together! Until Hughie gets mortally wounded and needs to be rushed to the hospital…Then they’re separated again! Also in this episode, Supes and non-Supes learn they aren’t so different, you-and-I. And Homelander and Stormfront have relationship issues that ends badly (for everyone else).
This particular episode actually has so much going on in it I felt like I watched three episodes in a row just by how much plot there was to get through. Despite doing so much in an hour it didn’t feel cluttered, had a good pace, and each storyline fed into the next to keep that pace. It might be my favorite episode out of all episodes of the Boys I’ve seen so far just by how much was happening and how fluid it all was, and am now only more excited about what’s to come. Unfortunately (for me) I have to wait until Friday now because I caught up with actual time, but that’s beside the point.
I especially like how things are moving with Homelander and Stormfront now that they’re a couple into becoming this impending threat for the entire world. I mean, they’re probably both the most powerful and evil two people sleeping together imaginable. It’s scary to think about the world being ruled by them.
I mean, when that happens we’ll then (hopefully) get to see it all taken down by the Boys, essentially the least powerful people on the show, with the exception of Kimiko, which is kind of why it’s so great when they do end up killing/beating Supes. They are the ultimate underdogs in a world filled with Super-powered individuals, what more can you do but hope they win anyway?
+10: An amazing episode with so much happening I’m sure I forgot things about it
