The Boys Season 3 - Episode 7

The Boys had to come back strong following Herogasm. The episode had a lot of people interested in how it would adapt its source material, but it was about more than that. The story showed a scared Homelander, Starlight renouncing her superhero name, and so much more.

The Boys Season 3 - Episode 7


There are only two more episodes left of the third season of The Boys, and the last six episodes have done a fine job of building up the remaining story. So here are just a few predictions on what could happen in the sixth episode:

But before she even gets to that point, she's going to blow a huge gasket when she finds out the boys did a job with Billy and Frankie. She's going to have a cow about Nicky. And the idea that Mia is staying at her house will probably give her a coronary.

It won't be a happy family reunion when the boys get home. There are going to be battle lines drawn, and only the strongest will survive. The guys have to realize that something is up if Smurf is free and none of them knew anything about it.

The Boys Season 3 has a Prime Video release date this June. It may be only 10 months since the last season arrived (and three months since spin-off Diabolical aired), but fans have missed Homelander (played by Anthony Starr) and the rest of The Seven.

Prime Video has released a The Boys Season 3 trailer, which revealed Homelander is going into full meltdown in the new episodes. The promo also gave fans their first look at new cast member Jensen Ackles and his superhero alter ego, Soldier Boy.

The Boys Season 3 release time on Prime Video is midnight PDT on Friday, June 3. On that day, the first three episodes of the show will be released all at once, with the remaining episodes coming one a week after that.

Last week's episode of The Boys Season 3, "Herogasm," changed the show's status quo in a number of big ways. Together, Soldier Boy, Hughie Campbell and Billy Butcher took down the TNT Twins and got into a fight with Homelander, nearly killing the leader of The Seven in the process at the episode's titular orgy. At the end of "Herogasm," Annie January/Starlight finally had enough and revealed to the world via social media Vought International's depraved practices, quitting The Seven in the process. The latest episode of the series, "Here Comes a Candle to Light You to Bed," explores the fallout of those events. Here's a spoiler-filled recap of the penultimate outing for The Boys Season 3.

Afterwards, Homelander watches January's videos about him and Vought, clearly obsessed with what's going on. He later goes to a rally for Robert Singer in a rural area, where he slanders Slander, much to the frustration of the politicians around him and the elation of the crowd. Homelander soon leaves the stage and stumbles upon a cow, which he milks in private. As he's drinking the fruits of his labor, congresswoman Victoria Neuman walks in. She tells him to publically admit Soldier Boy is the supervillain The Seven have been after and take control of the situation. Homelander grabs her by the throat, but Neuman reasons with him, proposing they help each other out. She then hands him a slip of paper that clearly shocks him. The contents aren't revealed until later in the episode, but there's an address written on the slip.

As that's going on, Frenchie and Kimiko regroup with Marvin/Mother's Milk and January to figure out a plan to deal with Butcher. Frenchie, who is once again using drugs after his confrontation with Nina last episode, combs through footage from Russia to figure out how to incapacitate Soldier Boy. Marvin tries to intervene, but it doesn't really work. Meanwhile, Kimiko and January bond. The former eventually asks the latter to get her Compound V and shows her a long message that isn't shown to the viewer. This message convinces January to help, despite her initial reluctance.

The other main plot in the episode deals with Hughie, Soldier Boy and Butcher fighting Mindstorm. The trio's plot starts with them staying with The Legend following the events of "Herogasm." There, The Legend reveals Soldier Boy never actually fought in World War II, though he was, though he was involved in the Kent State shootings and spraying protestors with fire hoses in Birmingham. The Stan Lee parody then makes a point about how being American means knowing you're the hero, which entails hiding the bad things and making myths about yourself. While initially the trio have some trouble finding Mindstorm, as he's notoriously paranoid and so has many cabins, the trio soon figure out where he is thanks to his lithium prescription, which is used to treat bipolar.

While we're going to have a lot of "Random Thoughts" to throw your way in a minute, one of the key themes of note we wanted to mention for this episode is just how much a shitty father or father figure in one's life can cause some serious collateral damage. And "Here Comes a Candle to Light You to Bed" punches us in the face with that reminder, reminding us of how the roots of what we're seeing now began with a lot of adults doing some truly horrible things to kids and then leaving them to deal with it on their own when they're older. From Butcher's nightmare mental loop of what happened between him, his dad, and his late brother; and MM's (Laz Alonso) confrontation with Todd (Matthew Gorman) over his daughter being exposed to Homelander's misinformation, to the episode-ending revelation that Soldier Boy is Homelander's father, we got to see the "origin stories" that got us to where we are now- never once asking us to sympathize or feel bad for them, but for us to understand where their darkness comes from.

Once again, Paul Reiser's The Legend is money in the brief time we're treated to his perspective, but he was key in separating fact from fiction for Hughie when it came to Soldier Boy's history. "Soldier Boy was to singing what pantyhose was to finger-fucking" might be one of the funniest lines of the season, and it just flowed out so naturally from Reiser that it elevated the humor ten-fold.

And to wrap things up on a slightly controversial note? As we get ready for next week's season-ender, I'll leave you with this thought. I don't blame and completely understand why Butcher didn't tell Hughie that V24 was killing them. Feel free to let me know how wrong I am in the "Comments" section below- see you next week!

Titled "Here Comes a Candle to Light You to Bed", 'the seventh episode of season 3 of 'The Boys' does not quite reach the heights of "Herogasm", but it is still a good one-hour entertainment in its own right, featuring huge reveals, action, and important character moments. It also serves as a fine setup for the finale.

If you thought Amazon Prime Video's superhero TV series 'The Boys' could not outdo itself after that astonishingly fun and action-packed sixth episode of its third season, titled "Herogasm"... you would be right. The penultimate episode of the season, titled "Here Comes a Candle to Light You to Bed", does not quite reach those heights, but it is still a good one-hour entertainment in its own right, featuring huge reveals, action, and important character moments. It also serves as a fine setup for the finale.

In the seventh episode, we go deep into Butcher's past, which helps explain why he is the way he is. Although Butcher and Homelander are sworn enemies, they also share several qualities between them. For instance, both can charm their way through anything, are tyrannical towards their underlings, and have egos the size of the Empire State Building. A particular flashback in "Here Comes a Candle to Light You to Bed" explains, and frankly fleshes out, the character of Butcher.

The storyline of Deep (Chace Crawford), though, remains one of the failings of the show this season as it does not seem to be leading to anything interesting, and the purpose appears to be just comic relief. But the joke (that Deep is sexually interested in aquatic animals) has honestly worn pretty thin. It is a nitpicky criticism, and that is because the show is otherwise so well-written and carefully structured that minor cracks in the edifice seem all the more noticeable.

Going into the penultimate episode, Season 3 of the show still has an astounding amount of plot threads hanging loose, and only two episodes left to weave them into a full tapestry. Fortunately, Episode 7 does a ton of heavy lifting by unveiling a whole bunch of backstory on multiple fronts, while still finding time for a shocking last-minute surprise. The episode sets the table for a truly delightful season finale, and as such, there's a lot to unpack in "The Boys" Season 3 Episode 7. Let's take a closer look at its ending.

Soldier Boy continues to prove that he's exactly the kind of guy a team member might want to sell out, if only to get a brief respite from all the toxic masculinity. Slapping Hughie around, getting up to no good with some elderly citizens at the Legend's (Paul Reiser) place, and generally acting like the kind of guy who always needs to be the top dog, Soldier Boy spends much of the episode thoroughly ignoring any and all of his allies, uneasy as they may be. We even see him committing crimes against music, courtesy of the Legend.

It's clear that Soldier Boy was never going to play ball with the Boys for long, and when he reveals the situation to Homelander at the end of the episode, it's clear that this fragile alliance has reached its end ... and a new, far more dangerous one between the father and the son might rise from the ashes. Still, family or not, can these two egomaniacal Supes even hope to coexist peacefully?

After his fight at Herogasm, Homelander is happy to eschew physical violence in favor of mental torture in this episode. Once again, however, he ends up in the receiving end far more often than he'd like. His attempts to threaten the imprisoned Maeve (Dominique McElligott) end in a sound defeat when she notices the concealer he's using to hide his bruises, and has a field day over his disheveled state. Homelander's later attempt to give a grandiose populist public speech devolves into a borderline incoherent rant about Annie, who's clearly under his skin even before she pulls the live broadcast trick on him. Even Victoria Neuman (Claudia Doumit) calls him out for his lack of focus. 041b061a72
