Entitled “Herogasm”, The Boys Season 3 Episode 6 is a fascinating instalment of this enthralling superhero TV series. While the episode’s title is a reference to the much-anticipated superhero orgy infamously from the source material, the event is a metaphor about how everybody is fucking and being fucked by the powers-that-be around them. This episode ramps up the tension and conflict as The Boys themselves begin to splinter off into varying agendas.
Butcher and Hughie have allied themselves with Soldier Boy to take down Homelander – which they almost succeed in this episode. Starlight and MM seek the higher ground, doing their best to keep the casualties rate down as the collateral damage to all-war supes war rises. Frenchie and Kimiko are forced to resort to extreme violence to survive against the machinations of Little Nina.
And as for the two most dangerous supes themselves? Victoria Neuman appears to be playing a waiting game before she takes the initiative while Homelander, of course, is progressively growing even more insane. In a memorable scene, Homelander’s mirror image berates him for not being strong enough, reminiscent of that classic sequence with Norman Osborn in the first Spider-Man movie.
The Boys Season 3 Episode 6 has everything fans of the series would want – superhero sex, gore, violence, insanity and potent socio-political commentary. The Boys is without doubt, the best superhero TV drama ever! Highly recommended.
Now streaming on Amazon Prime Video.
