The Boys has form for explosive finales – and season 3’s farewell episode promises to be no different. After last week’s Soldier Boy reveal, Homelander now has daddy issues and a legion of superpowered adversaries all gunning for Vought’s lead Supe. While a fourth season has been confirmed by Amazon, that doesn’t mean the end can’t come sooner for some of our favorites. With the likes of Frenchie, Kimiko, and Mother’s Milk in the firing line, there’s a high chance not everyone will come out of this unscathed. For more, check out our explainer on The Boys season 4.
