the boys season 3 episode 6 recap

Knowing that Soldier Boy is back, Homelander decides he must find and kill him. Meanwhile, Soldier Boy tells Billy that if he helps him track down his former team, he will kill Homelander. While The Female, aka Kimiko, is texting Frenchie, she is attacked. A-Train wants to sue Blue Hawk for his violent assault and paralyzing his brother, but Ashley calls him out for his hypocritical behavior.

As Homelander grapples with recent events, Soldier Boy tells Hughie that he didn’t mean to kill anyone; instead, he just blacked out. Billy finds an address for the TNT Twins, so Hughie does more Compound V. Starlight and Neuman chat, and Neuman reveals that she knows Hughie knows the truth about her. But instead of killing Hughie, Neuman wants her and Starlight to work together while increasing their social contacts. Neuman claims it’s for her daughter. Starlight, however, responds with “f**k you” and to either “pop her head” or “get away with it.”

While Nina takes Frenchie hostage, she threatens The Female’s life. And just when it looks like The Female might be dying, she breaks free, setting off a blood-filled frenzy. It nearly results in her death, but when her powers return, she is able to forcibly stab the thug who had attempted to kill her. In the aftermath, Frenchie and The Female find out that Nina is gone.

After Marvin reveals that Soldier Boy is responsible for his grandfather’s death, he and Starlight attend an orgy party for heroes. Starlight fears Soldier Boy will slaughter everyone there, unaware that Hughie is also at the party. After Marvine is dragged into superhero c*m, Starlight enters The Deep and has sex with an octopus. She learns from The Deep that it was Homelander’s idea to attend the orgy. And when Hughie runs into A-Train, he uses his newfound powers to punch him.

The end

When danger mounts, Hughie teleports Starlight away. As a result, they both argue, and Hughie eventually admits that it bothers him that Starlight is more powerful than him. Marvin comes face to face with Soldier Boy. But if he throws a smoke grenade, he does nothing. And in the end Billy stops Marvin from moving on.

Soldier Boy tracks down the TNT Twins. When he originally says he’ll let them go if he reveals who was to blame, the loud music makes him explode. With the TNT Twins and several others dead, Hughie tries to prevent Starlight from returning to the ruins. The Deep flees with his octopus while A-Train takes revenge on Blue Hawk and kills him by running through the streets.

Homelander comes and watches the sniffing, and after Soldier Boy mocks him as a “cheap counterfeit”, Homelander, Soldier Boy and Billy fight. Even Hughie joins in. But when it comes down to it, Soldier Boy can’t kill Homelander. And that’s why Homelander flies away. In the closing moments of the sixth episode of the boys season three, Starlight records a public message that goes against Homelander. She reveals that Soldier Boy is responsible for the explosion and that something terrible has happened to Queen Maeve. And she ends the message by saying she’s not Starlight, she’s Annie January, and she quits.
