Season two of Prime Video’s The Boys had an explosive ending (yes, we are referring to the actual heads that exploded in the climax). The finale was a perfect sendoff to the in-your-face satirical superhero show. However, it did leave us wondering what would happen in the next set of episodes. Let’s try to predict what we’ll see from one of the most unpredictable shows on streaming platforms.
Showrunner Eric Kripke told Entertainment Weekly that Stormfront isn’t really dead. Aya Cash, the actor who plays the Nazi supe followed the showrunner’s lead and had this to say:
“I think they’ve left the door open, but I also feel like there’s not much left of her. She’s not technically dead, but I think you’ll just have to see season three to find out what happened to her, or if she’s going to be around at all in her smaller form.”
The Boys get political
In a shocking twist, Victoria Neuman, the Congresswoman trying to reign in supes is a supe herself, not to mention a very dangerous one. She was the one responsible for all the exploding heads. There’s a character in the comics named Vic Neuman. Although the character on the show is different, he does take readers into the shady politics of the world of The Boys. Perhaps in season three, we’ll see more of a seedy political underbelly through Victoria, maybe even a move from satirizing the superhero genre toward politics.
Bad Billy Butcher
Billy Butcher takes a job with the CIA just before the season two rolls the credits. How long will a man like Butcher be able to work on the straight and narrow? In the comics, he eventually loses his mind, reveals himself to be the big bad, even killing his teammates. If he’s still reeling from Becca’s death and starts going down the wrong path, this might be his character arc in season three.
