The Boys pumped the breaks a little for its penultimate season 3 episode after the craziness of Herogasm for a more introspective hour dedicated to exploring and attempting to come to terms with past trauma. And daddy issues. Major, major daddy issues.

In a rare moment of vulnerability, Soldier Boy tells Butcher that he's always wanted kids so he could do a better job of raising them than his own excuse for a father (somehow, we can't see it). Billy can relate, of course, and when the final Payback member, Mindstorm, puts him in a coma later on, we get to see for ourselves just how messed-up the Cockney hardman's childhood was when he's forced to relive the events that led to his little brother's tragic suicide.

Butcher's abusive past is mirrored by Black Noir's own trip down memory lane, as we finally delve into the mute member of The Seven's broken mind and find out why he seems to be so afraid of Soldier Boy. We've previously caught glimpses of Noir's more gentle, childlike nature, and here we learn that his only real friends are a bunch of imaginary, Snow White-esque animated creatures. The murderous Supe has sone some pretty heinous things over the course of three seasons, but it's impossible not to feel just a little sorry for him in this moment.

Most of the other main characters are given less to do this week, but their respective storylines do move forward (a touch), and Starlight learns that V-24, or "Temp-V," is actually lethal. "Here Comes a Candle to Light You to Bed" saves its biggest bombshell for the end, however.

As the gang begins to formulate a plan to take Homelander down for good, Soldier Boy discovers that the psychotic leader of The Seven is actually his son! Could this lead to the formidable Supe betraying Butcher and siding with his mortal enemy? That's certainly one possibility, but whatever happens, this twist is certain to have major ramifications for what's shaping up to be a nail-bitingly tense and bloody diabolical finale.

What did you guys think of The Boys season 3, episode 7? How do you see next Friday's finale playing out? Drop us a comment down below.

@BassMan - Really does. The best CBM content out there at the moment. Hands down.

Best writing on TV right now. So damn good😐❤️

Father and son about to [frick] some shit up🙆🙃💪🔥

@AmazingFILMporg - Yes this season has been a huge improvement on Season 2 which also was pretty good! Hope they keep this up for the next season

@AmazingFILMporg - I haven't seen this season of the Boys yet, waiting to binge the whole season. But I just wanted to say THE OLD MAN with Jeff Bridges and John Lithgow is also a contender for best writing, and acting, and directing (idk if he did every episode but I know the first few were directed by Jon Watts and is MILES better than anything in any of his Spider-Man trilogy).

I highly highly highly suggest everyone check out The Old Man.

Good shit. I haven’t been this invested into a show since Daredevil season three.

The two of them against everyone else is going to be wild!

Why isn’t Star Wars able to produce well written and dynamic television like this? Even when you strip out the language, violence and nudity, The Boys is superior to any SW series produced so far. It’s incredibly frustrating.

@Dotanuki -

Because KK has no idea what she is doing.

I get it. Star wars is a delicate IP. Alot of history so you have to care for it but she is going about it all wrong.

She is stuck in the past and ruining past characters just to keep the average star wars fan watching but she is doing more damage to the brand overall.

There is no balance. For every prequel or spinoff from a past character there should be one completely new show or movie to expand the universe. That way you please the people that want member berries and the people that want new and interesting characters.

Also she needs to stop greenlighting and canceling projects and rewriting scripts last minute😡

@Dotanuki - Because Star Wars was built on selling toys, not telling stories.
AmazingFILMporg - 7/1/2022, 9:58 AM
@Reeds2Much -

That's not completely true. The original trilogy had a compelling story💪
Reeds2Much - 7/1/2022, 9:53 AM

Not looking forward to the withdrawal once both seasons end.
AmazingFILMporg - 7/1/2022, 9:54 AM
@Reeds2Much -

Perfectly balanced, as all things should be💪🔥❤️

@Reeds2Much - Don't worry. Better Call Saul is just around the corner.

This and episode 6 were so damn good. Really enjoy seeing Soldier Boy on screen, his humor with Hughie was hilarious. Can't wait for the finale.

Whoever wrote that A-Train subplot of being kept a live by the heart of a racist white man he murdered in revenge pulled some Jordan Peele shit. That was probably the most [frick]ed up moment in the entire episode, and there were plenty of those.
