Jesus Christ!! That last minute :joy:. Just.... holy sh*t. Great episode.
Is Dr. Walter Bischop Billy Butcher’s dad?!Fring for thought!
This episode was the most bloody one towards the end..yep even more brutal than the red wedding..call it the red slaughter.
As Butcher would say, “Fuckin Diabolical!” Even Homelander was clueless when everyone started exploding haha
Well, shit. They don't call this show mindblowing for nothing.
Oh my god everything in this episode. Wow!We are living in the golden age of adapting graphic novels to TV shows (Watchmen, The Boys, Preacher...). As powerful and irreverent as they could only be in print before.
who ever wrote that intro fucking nailed how social media & the internet warps minds
I really need an a-day-in-the-life episode for Ashley the Vought publicist. “This is not lesbian, this is not on brand!”
Not the greatest The Boys episode, esp. not Season 2's good. They have come this far to plan and strategize against Vought, yet they don't seem to have any backup plan... not with Lamplighter, who they leave only with Hughie to babysit, and especially not with Dr. Vogelbaum, the man behind all these, the most important man who should have acted as key witness? With Lamplighter, okay, they missed their chance, but Butcher and Mallory could have at least made Vogelbaum recorded his confession or some sort since they should have known that sending him off means an extremely high risk of failure. And they freaking knew there's someone out there who can pop head out of nowhere. Why don't they take any precaution?
The one scene with Hughie and Lamplighter is kind of dumb too, only showing him as ever petulant bystander who can't prioritize - which is a step down of character development since he blew Transluscent's ass. Butcher family drama seems to give a hint of character development but the pacing is too convenient as a cop out for stuff to fall apart.
This was a rather dull episode as far as The Boys goes. It had an explosive ending but that's about it. As always it's a pleasure to see John Noble but his tough accent was a bit weak less subtle than his normal work. But we're probably not going to see a lot of him anyway. Shame because his acting itself was fine.
I know it's a cool effect, but someone in production must LOVE that pimple poppin' thingy.
Holey shmoley... What tha frak...???
TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIESPLEASE STAND BY
Hahahahahaha! C'mon now, people. Let's not lose our heads.
Well I liked Candlestick man.Anyone else who's getting annoyed by Black Noir though? He's like the silent agoniser in the show who's just there to fuck things up or kill people, but has absolutely zero personality.Elena is fucking weak. Maeve deserves someone so much better.
It's ironic how after Hughie's and Lamplighter's talk about cucks, Hughie used him like a cuck to save his girlfriend. Then, we have Mallory's talk with M.M. about the macho self-sacrificing bullshit and, stereotypically, Lamplighter followed the redemption-equals-death trope. Hughie mutilating Lamplighter's crispy corpse was like the show pissing on his sacrifice and this tired masculine trope. Very ballsy satire.Butcher confronting his abusive father and Homelander confronting Rebecca were the other good parts of the episode.
I know, I know, the last scene. But just want to say that Karl Urban was fucking dynamite this ep.
This show is absolute BONKERS. It feels like nobody is ever safe. I can only imagine where this is all leading.
But am I the only one who finds Billy Butcher more grating than charming? I’m really trying to like him, but he makes it difficult with his incessant brooding, recklessness, and sarcasm. I knows he’s supposed to be “badass,” but... I dunno... just not feeling it.
And HOW did Starlight ever get into The Seven? She never seems to stand a chance against anyone. I love her character, so I’m hoping they give her (and her powers) a moment to shine.
Black Noir vs. Almond Joy = Priceless.
Also... I see you Walter Bishop. ;-)
It took seven episodes for there to be an episode this good in this season, but it happened. I'm satisfied. Part of me thinks the finale won't be as good, and that's fine; because of how good this one was. If this episode wasn't as good as it was, and the finale ends up being decent enough but nothing more, I probably would end up having a slight problem with it. But not anymore.
The ending of this episode was excellent. The final minute or so was easily the best part, and it was so good that it elevated the entire episode for me; which is the reason that I've given it a rating of eight out of ten, whereas I've only given a six or seven to all of the previous episodes.
And I'm curious as to what the hell happened. I thought it was Stormfront that blew Susan's head up in the premiere, yet that doesn't seem to be the case. If it were, that would mean she's the one who did it to all those people at the end. And I don't think it was. Homelander certainly looked a little surprised. I'll admit, we didn't get a good look at her reaction, though, so I guess it still could end up being her. But I don't think it is.
It's possible that she was the one who did it to Susan and that she's not the one responsible this time. But I have a feeling that whoever is responsible for the incident at the end of the episode is also responsible for what happened to Susan, which I now think isn't Stormfront. My immediate thought was poison and that it was somehow administered to a select few that would end up being in that place.
Another theory of mine is a miniature device implanted in the head of someone that blows up via a remote trigger. That would make sense with Jonah and Shockwave, but they weren't the only ones whose heads blew up. And, needless to say, the theory wouldn't make sense with everyone else whose heads blew up.
But I just thought of something that makes so much more sense; Compound V. Lamplighter, in the previous episode, mentioned three things that could happen with Compound V. You get powers, you become a freak, or you explode. I think Stan was able to get it into the systems of most of the people that were going to be in the courtroom. I don't know how, but that's my theory.
This episode began abruptly, like the previous episode, and that threw me off a little bit, which took me a little while to get back into the swing of things. The ending was the highlight of it, no doubt. There were other moments that I liked, too. Other than that, most of this episode wasn't that captivating. I didn't care about most of it. But the ending was so good that it made the entire episode worthwhile. I'll be fine with it if the finale is a bit underwhelming because of it. Honestly, it's about time that I've finished watching this season. It's been alright. I'm mildly interested to see how it'll end.
Hate that Black Noir is just Mr Edgar’s killing machine! I wanna get to know him! Like what’s his deal? And it looks like he hasn’t healed completely from this season’s first episode
Several things of the episode have left me open-mouthed. Now to wait until Friday to see how the season ends
Does anyone think it might be the Human Popper girl? She's been missing for two episodes now.
Good. Becca you idiot, you deserve that shit. What the hell did you think was going to happen?
Mediocre episode that keeps walking the narrow line between being woke and anti-woke which remains interesting. Certain changes from the comics however make me fear this will go into a certain direction and the mention of Pewdiepie by our lovable Stormfront can't be but intentional.... And pretty lame.
As for the final few minutes: sure, shocker but that shouldn't be the reason the episode is deemed GREAT. Especially since what happened before was a lot of "sad sad men" scenes and nothing much else.
This is getting really boring....
Mindblowing (eeerg). That last minute is red wedding of The Boys! T O T A L L Y E P I C ! ...and of course that ending music R O F L ! Shame they couldn't afford more money for Shawn Ashmore.By the way guys, i'm %100 with Homelander about his son. Becca just doing same shit as she says opposite, Homelander became that because they always lied to him, now Becca is same kind of idiot. Just kill her Homelander, moron. Willy you deserve more than that idiot woman.
With this chapter my head has exploded. Can anyone explain to me what that was about at the end?
The way this show has to keep upping it's violence and gore level, from giant whale innards to multiple heads exploding like a harmony, to keep surprising the audience is...entertaining af
I think I've seen enough head's exploding for one lifetime, jeez.
