It’s here! Episode 8 of The Boys, “What I Know” answers a lot of our questions but leaves us with more, gives us an epic fight scene, and leaves both sides with heartbreak. Hanako, Michael, Anthony, and Lorrie thoroughly explore the season 2 finale and what the events will mean for season 3.
In S2E7 of The Boys, the episode titled “Butcher, Baker, Candlestick Maker” brings us a lot of parallels to the real world with a fear-induced shooting, super villain propaganda, and an explosive Congressional hearing. Butcher deals with some long-overdue family drama, Hughie gets introduced to “supe porn”, and Homelander and Stormfront make a house call with disastrous results. Join the crew as we discuss the penultimate episode for Season 2.
The FHP crew discuss S2E6 of The Boys, “The Bloody Doors Off”, which gives us a look at what happened the night Lamplighter killed Mallory’s grandkids and the history between Frenchie and Lamplighter. We find out more about Vought and Stormfront’s connection to Sage Grove, and we finally find out the true extent of Stormfront’s history.
Butcher lashes out in the midst of an existential crisis, The Deep dives deeper into the Church of the Collective, Black Noir finds what he’s been looking for, we are introduced to the phrase “laser my tits”, and MM becomes Hanako’s favorite character due to his television-watching habits. Join the crew as we discuss S2E5 “We Gotta Go Now”.
In this episode of the podcast, Hanako, Michael, and Lorrie discuss S2E4 of The Boys, in which Starlight bonds with Hughie and MM on a road trip, Liberty’s identity is revealed, Butcher reunites with Becca, and Homelander confronts his enemies.
In S2E3, titled “Over the Hill with the Swords of a Thousand Men”, The Boys (and Kimiko) attempt to make an exchange aboard a Big Wet Dream, The Deep tries to find an in back into The Seven (with disastrous results), and Stormfront shows her true colors (let’s just say she is not a fan of black or yellow).
Oh, and Hughie is (you guessed it!) covered in blood…AGAIN.
In S2E2 of The Boys, Butcher has returned but his arrival causes tension within the group. Stormfront is making one helluva impression during her media tour with Starlight and Queen Maeve (“Girls Get it Done!”), A-Train makes a very awkward comeback, Homelander begins campaigning for Father of the Year (not!), and Hughie is covered in blood…AGAIN. Join us as we discuss the episode titled “Proper Preparation and Planning”.
