Time is almost up in’ Butcher, Baker, Candlestick Maker ‘(The Boys Season 2 Episode 7), as more and more people prepare to stand up against the infamous society of superhero creation Vought – and Vought seduces more regular people with promises of unchecked power for law and order The boys feel more current than ever, as the penultimate episode of the season shifts the many pieces from the show on set, prepping for next week’s finale But that doesn’t sound like a time-consuming episode filled with setup and connective tissue In fact, there’s a lot going on, so let’s sort it all out…

The team breaks up again at the start of the episode: Mother’s Milk (Laz Alonso) accompanies Grace Mallory (Laila Robbins) on a journey to convince former Vought high shooter Jonah Volgebaum (John Doman) to join Lamplighter (Shawn Ashmore) testifying against the conglomerate, while Butcher goes to see his mother (more on that in a moment) This means that Hughie (Jack Quaid), still healing from his injury from the previous episode, is responsible for babysitting Lamplighter – which means for a while sitting on the couch while Lamplighter watches an assortment of top-themed pornography.They end up sharing their respective feelings of inadequacy, though Hughie has to express it through a porn-related metaphor, and when Hughie realizes that Starlight (Erin Moriarty) has been forcibly detained by Vought, he decides he needs to do something about it , open wound on his chest or not, and hires Lamplighter, who has extensive knowledge of Vought’s HQ, to accompany him

Their mission may only have a skeleton crew consisting of a disgraced supe and an unmotorized civilian, but it has all the hallmarks of a classic Boys mess: the plan is hasty and finely crafted, and it ends in shocking violence when it turns out the Lamplighter ignites inside the Vought building Alarm lights flashing all over the building give Starlight, trapped in a room with no accessible light , something to absorb So what is Hughie actually doing? Well, before he knows Starlight can break free, he realizes that he’ll need Lamplighter’s (inexplicably) still-active handprint ID to open some doors, so he saws the hand of the crusty corpse of Lamplighter It’s not the biggest violence of the episode – which comes at the end – but it’s certainly the most engaged

One of the best openings in the series follows a regular-looking man going about his day, inundated at every turn with right-wing propaganda, often led by Stormfront (Aya Cash) and Homelander (Antony Starr) The Post will sound familiar to you: the super-terrorists are everywhere, flocking across the borders of our country, the supes must stop them by any means necessary, and only the « snowflakes » and the « SJWs » will protest. spans several days, showing radio shows, ubiquitous cable news screens and podcasts surrounding this guy until, in a fit of righteous paranoia, he shoots a local winery worker suspected of supervillainy (it is, of course, not actually bulletproof ) It’s a chilling distillation of the endgame of Homelander and Stormfront, with a concise idea of ​​how the rhythms of hate speech are incorporated into someone’s normal life.The music isn’t really at the center of that startling start, but of course the series can’t resist the ironic soundtrack of this crescendo with Jon Batiste’s cover of « What A Wonderful World »

At this point, both active and active members of The Seven are vastly outnumbered by various supers waiting behind the scenes, hoping to get back in the good Vought books or end the whole operation. As Stormfront and Homelander go Seven-supe with their advertising offensive, A-Train (Jessie T Usher) and The Deep (Chace Crawford) wait behind the scenes at their Scientology-like cult, hoping to be recalled. in the majors now that Starlight has been exposed and perhaps at the best time of the episode, the creepy, silent, slasher-like Black Noir is completely defeated by an Almond Joy candy bar, brandished by Queen Maeve She does not fully engage in the anti-Vought cause, but she does know that Black Noir (who is about to kill Hughie during his Starlight rescue) has a terrible nut allergy

When Butcher’s mother calls in Episode 7 of Season 2 of The Boys, she announces that she just landed in New York City and her father is dead This is only half true: she’s in New York, but Butcher’s (John Noble) abusive father is alive and well, if only barely; He will die of cancer soon Yet he’s good enough to open old wounds with his son, claiming credit for Butcher’s tenacity and enraging him with memories of Butcher’s brother, who committed suicide. that he is not entirely wrong; Butcher later uses this formidable exterior when he returns to Jonah Vogelbaum, who previously refused to join the Congressional hearings against Vought Soon Vogelbaum makes a spectacular entrance to audiences.But before he can say anything, his head explodes Like dozens of others, creating a nationwide televised pandemonium as the boys reunite (plus Starlight and his mother!) watch from their hiding place in horror and disbelief

So who, exactly, is blowing these heads up? Presumably, this is the same force that blew the head of the boys’ CIA contact Susan Raynor (Jennifer Esposito) in the first episode of this season.The anonymous supe the gang met last week seemed to have this kind of powers, but she was still locked up when Susan was murdered And in the congressional massacre, why was Rep. Victoria Neuman (Claudia Doumit) spared, given her aggressive anti-Vought crusade? Are Homelander and Stormfront involved in this file, or are they just Vought hate pawns? Even with The Boys in retirement, there’s still a long way to go in next week’s final

Episode 7 of Season 2 of « The Boys » is available on Amazon Prime Video starting Friday, October 2
