A look at everything that happened in The Boys Season 2, Episode 2

It’s time to find out who the superterrorist is. Meanwhile, Vought has a new slogan. Here’s a look at The Boys Season 2, Episode 2.

You just new Vought would use the three women on the team to its advantage in promotion, right? “Girls Get It Done” is the new slogan. And yes, this slogan will keep coming up. In a way, it’s a little like the cheesy moment in Avengers: Endgame with all the women surrounding Captain Marvel.

Anyway, let’s focus on the episode, as we find out what happened to Butcher and find out who the superterrorist (or is it supervillain?) is.

Filling in the gaps

Butcher thinks back to the events of The Boys Season 1 finale, with him seeing Becca alive. However, he next wakes up in a parking lot outside a restaurant. He makes notes of what he saw around Becca on a sheet of paper from the restaurant, but a news report plays with Butcher as a wanted man.

Butcher has to get out of dodge.

More from Amazon Originals

Back to the present day, he tells The Boys that he’s meeting with a “contact.” That contact is Grace Mallory, who is not happy to see Butcher. She even wants to bring him in for killing Madelyn.

However, Butcher talks her around to help when he brings up Susan. He’s sure Vought killed her. Grace will help them, but the condition is that she gets her hands on the superterrorist.

This season is definitely already showing the tension between the group. The tension was there from the beginning because of their histories, but after everything at the end of last season, it’s even worse.

Homelander wants to bring out his son’s powers

Now that Homelander knows he has a son, she’s spending a lot of time at Becca’s house. Becca isn’t happy. She just wants her son to be normal, but Homelander isn’t going to let that happen.

Becca does get a chance to speak to the person who has been keeping an eye on her and Ryan. She tells this person that Becca was promised protection. It doesn’t matter. Now that Homelander knows the truth, the safest thing is to keep Homelander around. He’ll get bord of Ryan.

We do get a lot of insecurity from Homelander with Ryan. He even has to ask Ryan to say “I love you” back to him. We’re getting a sense of humanity in him, but it’s not enough to like him!

The Deep goes on a path of discovery

While all this goes on, The Deep is still trying to get back into The Seven. He’s spending time with Eagle The Archer and Carol. They’re from the Church of the Collective. In other words, a cult.

Carol tells The Deep that he needs to accept himself. Eagle gives him hallucinogens. While he trips, his gills start talking to him, breaking down the things he’s done in the past because he’s ashamed of himself—of his gills.

Will The Deep be a changed man by the end of the season, or is he couldn’t to find himself going down a dangerous rabbit hole?

Girls Get It Done!

Now that Stormfront is officially on the team, she, Starlight, and Queen Maeve are doing publicity together. Stormfront is outspoken, which corporate doesn’t like, but she’s not going to change. She’s a Supe, so she can do whatever she wants. This isn’t going to be a character to like.

Maeve decides not to stick around. She gets an emergency call. It turns out she’s still Elena’s emergency contact and Elena is in the hospital having her appendix out. Maeve finally tells Elena that they never left the house to avoid Homelander finding out the truth. She fears Homelander will hurt Elena because of his interest in Maeve.

Back to Starlight and Stormfront, these two do not seem to be getting along. Stormfront accuses Starlight of being a corporate bot, which couldn’t be further from the truth.

On top of that, A-Train returns. He looks back to full health at first, and he knows that Starlight is up to something. We knew this was coming if A-Train would survive. It’s not surprising that he has his eyes on her when Deco (the limb-growing Supe) turns up with Compound V for Starlight.

Later on, A-Train shows up at Starlight’s house and finds the sample. Starlight manages to convince A-Train not to say anything, making it clear she’ll reveal his secrets, including the ones involving the death of his girlfriend. This truce isn’t going to stand for too long.

Finding the superterrorist

With an address in hand, The Boys head to find the superterrorist. While there, Kimiko rushes to the superterrorist and hugs him, calling him Mouse. He’s her brother.

The siblings get some time together, catching up with everything that’s happened. Mouse believes America is the enemy now. He’s going to do everything he can to take down the country. The conversation leads to a fight, which Kimiko wins, putting her brother in a sleeper hold. The Boys show up with a van and off they all go.

Butcher punches Hughie, who had previously stopped him from killing Mouse. Butcher makes it clear that he will kill Hughie if he gets in the way of Butcher seeing his wife again.

At the end, Butcher shares with the group. He tells them everything about Becca and that he needs to find her. That means handing the superterrorist over to Grace.
