1 Mins read

In the latest episode of Amazon Prime’s “The Boys,” entitled “Beware the Jabberwock, My Son,” the stakes have never been higher as secrets spill and alliances shift dramatically. Here’s our breakdown of the five key revelations from a pulse-pounding episode that left fans reeling.

The Revelation of the Supe-Killing Virus

Billy Butcher (Karl Urban) has finally come clean to The Boys about the Supe-Killing virus created in a covert lab at Godolkin University, a facility managed by Vought. His revelation about the virus’s potential to tip the scales in the ongoing battle between humans and supes captured the group’s attention, especially since Victoria Neuman (Claudia Doumit) now controls the only known sample after eliminating its creator.

A Pardon in Play

In a dramatic turn of events, Butcher proposes a deal to free the former Vought CEO, Stan Edgar (Giancarlo Esposito), from prison in exchange for his aid against Neuman. Despite initial reluctance, Edgar’s discovery of his daughter’s ruthless actions sways him. Butcher’s revelation that Neuman has turned her daughter into a supe using Compound V changes Edgar’s stance, leading to an uneasy alliance.

A Precarious Truce

As The Boys delve deeper into the origins of the virus at Stan Edgar’s farm, they encounter a startling scene—animals grotesquely altered by Compound V. Amidst the chaos, a tentative truce is struck with Neuman, who arrives to confront the breach of her secrets. The tense alliance is aimed at uncovering more about the virus but is fraught with mutual distrust.

Cover Blown and Secrets Unveiled

The episode heightens the intrigue with A-Train (Jessie T. Usher) as he maneuvers to keep his covert dealings with The Boys hidden from Sage (Aya Cash), who is close to uncovering the truth. In desperation, A-Train implicates a Vought executive, turning the internal strife within Vought into a ticking time bomb.

Tragic Ends and New Beginnings

In the episode’s most heart-wrenching moment, Hughie (Jack Quaid) faces an unimaginable decision regarding his father, Hugh (Simon Pegg), whose rapid deterioration after an accidental exposure to Compound V leads to a devastating conclusion. This poignant father-son storyline adds a layer of depth to Hughie’s character, showcasing his painful growth and the personal costs of the war with Vought.
