The Season 2 finale of The Boys is in our crosshairs, but first we’ve got a penultimate episode that will dial up the tension between our scrappy gang and The Seven even further.
In the trailer for episode 7, ‘Butcher, Baker, Candlestick Maker’, Butcher (Karl Urban) investigates a little deeper behind the scenes for Victoria Neuman – The Boys’ own version of AOC – and continues to wonder if Becca’s son Ryan (Cameron Crovetti) could turn into a bad egg, just like his dad. Meanwhile, Homelander (Antony Starr) introduces his new fascist bae Stormfront (Aya Cash) to Ryan, much to Becca’s dismay, and outs Starlight (Erin Moriarty) as a mole in The Seven, publicly branding her a traitor. Hughie (Jack Quaid) turns to his new supe acquaintance Lamplighter (Shawn Ashmore) to get Annie out of danger, but it’s an extremely risky gambit.
Here’s an official synopsis for episode seven, which will be streaming on Amazon Prime Video from October 2…
“To help Victoria Neuman (Claudia Doumit) make a case against Vought, Mallory and The Boys look to an unlikely source for answers. Hughie gets terrifying news about Starlight. Meanwhile, Homelander and Stormfront further their master plan for Compound V.”
And here’s that trailer…
The black and white of Butcher’s cause continues to bleed into grey, as The Boys become more entwined with the handful of supes willing to help them take down Vought. Starlight, Kimiko (Karen Fukuhara) and Lamplighter are now on side, and Queen Maeve (Dominique McElligott) is willing to do whatever it takes to slip out from Homelander’s suffocating grip, but things are about to get trickier for Butcher when his parents – Fringe’s John Noble and Downton Abbey’s Lesley Nicol – roll into town.
As this season edges towards a final face-off between The Boys and Homelander/Stormfront, there are likely to be some unforeseeable losses ahead, and it’s unclear whose side the supes will ultimately be on when the chips are down.
