The Boys: Season 2, Episode 6 (Review)

This review contains spoilers.

We were left with that awkwardly brilliant scene between Homelander and Stormfront last week and we see straight away that their passion has only heightened. Causing other people pain means Homelander gets a stroke of luck.

There’s lots of story filling in this episode and some gaps are filled in for us. Shawn Ashmore’s character, Lamplighter is explained and as a former member of The Seven and with previous links to The Boys, he’s quite integrated. He’s also a big part of Frenchie’s backstory. As The Boys pay a visit to the Sage Growth Centre it becomes clear quite quickly that things are quite sinister there.

I loved this part of the episode as we see that Sage acts as a CompoundV testing centre. The test subjects get their opportunity to show off what powers they have. Some are brilliant, some are sick and one in particular is … interesting and it’s hilarious watching Mother’s Milk become his victim. That right there has to be the best moment of the week. It’s Billy’s turn to do some bonding with Starlight this week which doesn’t get off to a great start. Consequences of a showdown at the Sage Centre mean the pair actually do find some common ground in their worry for Hughie.

Big excitement as Stormfront’s story is also finally revealed when she panics that Homelander has changed his mind about their relationship. Never leave him waiting, he clearly isn’t that patient. With only two episodes left, her reveal sets the rest of the season in motion as we have a clearer idea of where things are going.
