‘The Boys’ fans are losing their minds over the penultimate episode’s game-changing twist

Amazon Prime Video

Warning, spoilers for The Boys season three, episode seven, “Here Comes a Candle to Light You to Bed” forward!

So who noticed this twist approaching The Boys? Butcher and Hughie’s plan to take out Homelander hit a minor snag this week, when, monitoring down the following merchandise on Soldier Boy’s literal Payback checklist — a Supe named Mindstorm who traps individuals in their very own recollections till they actually die — went awry. Despite Soldier Boy warning the duo to not make eye contact with Mindstorm, that’s precisely what occurs once they lastly do encounter him, and Butcher unintentionally nearly seals his personal destiny.

Soldier Boy, performed by Jensen Ackles who continues to kill it each metaphorically and actually, sees Butcher as a casualty, which in flip forces Hughie to present Mindstorm a short respite from loss of life to be able to save his pal. And whereas he manages to do, it’s finally on the expense of their mission. Disgusted with Hughie and Butcher for dropping sight of the tip aim, Solider Boy has successfully now gone rogue, and that’s not good for anyone.

Except, maybe, Homelander, who receives a cellphone name from Soldier Boy who informs him that the “situation’s changed” and that they should have a dialog. As it seems in 1980, earlier than being bought to the Russians, Soldier Boy was taken to a Vought lab the place he “beat his meat into a cup” and inadvertently introduced Homelander into the world.

“You know what the bitch of it is,” Solder Boy tells him. “If they’d have just kept me around, I’d have let you take the spotlight. What father wouldn’t want that for his son?” he asks, earlier than the episode fades to black.

So it seems that Butcher, Hughie, and the gang have a a lot, a lot larger downside on their arms. And as season 3 barrels in the direction of its conclusion subsequent week, it appears that evidently all bets are off — particularly contemplating the revelation Annie learns about V24 being deadly after three to fives doses, which Butcher and Hughie will nearly definitely have to have any likelihood by any means in opposition to Soldier Boy and Homelander.

But for now, followers are nonetheless wrapping their head round the truth that Soldier Boy is certainly Homelander’s father, and what the means going ahead.

Others identified how Butcher and Hughie are basically “screwed” now with the daddy and son teaming up.

And on a completely totally different word, a minimum of one fan remembered what Soldier Boy beforehand talked about about founding Herogasm and, uh, Stormfront, specifically.

On one hand, Butcher and Hughie are clearly no match for Solder Boy and Homelander, contemplating that Butcher, Hughie, and Solider Boy barely managed to tackle Homelander when it was a 3 to 1 combat. But alternatively, it looks as if this city may not be large enough for the 2 dueling egos, and it feels inevitable that Homelander’s evident daddy points are going to ultimately come into play.

And whereas Ackles has not but been confirmed for season 4, all bets are off heading into subsequent week’s thrilling finale.
