In an episode that’s as fun as it is traumatizing (normal for the Boys), Butcher leaves randomly, as usual, and Hughie is left in charge of watching Lamplighter. But once Hughie realizes Starlight is in jail he and Lamplighter invade Seven tower to save her. Meanwhile, Homelander and Stormfront decide they want to be parents together and go to steal his son from Butcher’s wife.
This episode has an absolutely explosive ending. It’s such a cliffhanger that I’m really not sure what to expect next and am basically scared for every character in this show now, which I suppose is right where the creators want me as they set up the last episode of this season. The Boys are trying to take down Vought but it seems like there’s absolutely no stopping them. What can one do in the face of such hopelessness? The government can’t stop them, no one can, and if Homelander really wanted he could kill every single person alive with nothing able to stop him at all. And, since it’s Homelander, I really wouldn’t put this past him at all.
There wasn’t much I didn’t like in this episode, the only thing that really bugged me was an especially long scene between Butcher and a figure from his past, but even that was well-acted and great and provided a little more backstory for Butcher.
+10: This show is just getting better as the world in it just keeps getting worse. The exact opposite of reality right now!
