The Boys Season 2 Episode 8 Recap
In the previous episode of Amazon’s The Boys, heads started exploding before Vogelbaum’s testimony before Congress, and Homelander and Stormfront took Ryan. In the season finale, The Boys Season 2 Episode 8, Butcher struck a deal with Stan Edgar, and A-Train found Annie and Hughie.
“Swear on Lenny’s Soul”
Becca risked her life to escape the Vought compound and found her way to The Boys’ hideout under the pawn shop. Butcher promised to get Ryan back. However, he met with Stan Edgar to make a deal. He would find Ryan but alert Vought to extract him in exchange for information on where Homelander was.
The Boys prepared their weapons to extract Ryan. Meanwhile, Becca made Butcher swear to bring Ryan back to her. When they successfully distracted Stormfront and Homelander, Butcher got Ryan with Becca but asked M.M. to take them to Mallory. He confessed about the deal with Edgar to Becca.
Edgar met with Alastair to discuss The Deep coming back to The Seven. A-Train overheard Edgar allude to Stormfront’s racism as the reason why he couldn’t also come back to The Seven. While Hughie and Annie were in the car, A-Train found them and gave them the Church’s information on Stormfront. This information got to the press, and Alastair rewarded A-Train. It would be him going back to The Seven, not Deep.
Hughie and Annie tried to convince Maeve to testify, but she emphatically declined. After the news about Stormfront being a Nazi permeated through the press, she found The Boys and blew up their arsenal. Kimiko and Annie fought her, but it wasn’t enough. However, Maeve arrived and drove Stormfront to fly away.
Not His Fault
When Stormfront arrived, Butcher, Becca, and Ryan tried to escape. However, Stormfront found them and tried to choke Becca to death. Ryan’s laser vision triggered and burnt Stormfront and mortally wounded Becca. With her dying breath, she asked Butcher to promise that he would take care of Ryan and not blame him.
When Homelander arrived at the scene, he tried to get Ryan to go with him. However, Ryan stayed with Butcher. Maeve arrived with the video of them on the plane and threatened to release it if Homelander harmed them. Butcher was able to get Ryan to Mallory to protect him.
“Stand on My Own”
The Boys disbanded, with M.M. going home to his family and Kimiko and Frenchie leaving the hideout together. Starlight stayed with the Seven and Vought. Hughie asked Victoria Neuman for a job since he wanted to work against Vought in his own way. However, it was revealed that Neuman was the Supe who had exploded heads in the Congressional hearing. After dealing with Alastair to get more information about Vought’s Supes, she killed him.
