The Boys Season Two Episode Four Review: A True Power Struggle

Season two of The Boys is clearly setting up for a showdown between Homelander and Stormfront. In episode four, Homelander is seeing that he does not have the power over the Seven as he once did. We also find out a bit about Stormfront throughout the episode as well. I’m getting ahead of myself, though. Episode three ended in an explosive attack, perpetrated by Stormfront. What is the fallout of that incident? A heartbroken Kimiko. An infuriated Homelander. And The Boys on an unclear path; can they ever get back together? Is this a fight they can even win?

Where Do We Go Now?

By now, you can feel how exhausted everyone is. How would you feel by being beaten down, with no clear path to victory in sight? From A-Train, to Starlight, Kimiko, Frenchie, Hughie, and every other main player in this show, you can feel that they are at their wits’ end. Unfortunately, the fight is just starting for them. With Stormfront looking to disrupt the way things are done and push her own hateful agenda, now is not the time to let up your guard. Especially when Homelander seemingly has it out for everyone. Queen Maeve, A-Train, Starlight…no one is safe. Maybe only Black Noir? We know Homelander adores him at the very least.

Episode four is the best episode in season two so far. It was heart-pounding on many levels. There was so much tension and moments that kept you on the edge of your seat. At the same time, there were so many emotions unpacked. Homelander and Billy Butcher were the standouts – but, I felt so bad for Frenchie as well. So many emotions! Also, we found out more background about Mother’s Milk and in general, his character (already a great character) was fleshed out further.

Rating: 4.5/5

I felt so scared for Queen Maeve and Starlight in this episode. I felt Becca’s worry and fury. Also, I just know the show is setting something up with Black Noir, as well as A-Train. Where it’s going to go? I have no idea. But, all I know is, I need more. This is certainly not season one and seeing how much it’s grown has really impressed me. Season one was fantastic due to its outrageousness and commentary on greed and corporate corruption. Season two is great so far due to the intensity and exploring these characters we know even further.

Definitely make sure you catch up on the latest episode of The Boys!
