10 Best Butcher Quotes From Season 3 of The Boys

Almost a month after the conclusion of the current season of the comic book adaption The Boys, the ending has left fans wanting more. Season 3 has proved to be not just one of the finest seasons of the program, but also one of the best shows of the year. With even more gruesome deaths, brilliant musical numbers, stellar performances, and very vile characters (whether they are officially the good guys or not), The Boys season 3 is a fan favorite for everyone.

While Jensen Ackles’ performance as Soldier Boy was one of the greatest of the season, Karl Urban’s comeback as Billy Butcher was as fantastic as ever. Amazingly, the anti-hero who’s anti-hero is able to become worse every season and has a larger corpse count than ever before when he goes against his own beliefs and takes Temp V for 24 hours to get superpowers.

10 “They said you were the one who kept the platoon together.”

‘Glorious Five-Year Plan,’ Episode 4

While Billy Butcher is undoubtedly one of the show’s worst characters and a borderline antagonist, he really cares about the boys.

He informs MM that he’s “under no illusions about what” he is after sending Kimiko to execute a job for Little Nina in order to find the whereabouts of the weapon that allegedly murdered Soldier Boy, and that’s why MM is so vital to the squad.

Butcher is undoubtedly the “hard” leader, but MM’s role is to “look after the lads” and keep the squad together. It adds dimension to know that he’s always been the morale-boosting character, even in his marine days. Given Butcher’s usual reluctance to discuss his background, telling MM the true reason he chose him for the squad is a kind gesture.

9 “This is The Temp V… We Need To Stop By The Office And Get…”

‘Here Comes A Candle To Light You To Bed,’ Episode 7

Nobody is surprised that Temp-V is a ticking time bomb with fatal negative effects. Annie breaks the quiet between them when she discovers it creates lesions in their brains and calls Butcher. While many expected Butcher to continue taking it, many were startled when he withheld the truth from Hughie.

He also calls Soldier Boy a “granny f*cker” in an effort to lighten the mood, but even Hughie can sense the scenario is unpleasant. Leading Hughie to the same death so that he isn’t alone at the end seems like something Butcher would do. Fans, as usual, overestimate Butcher’s moral compass, and happily, he prevents Hughie from stealing any more in the conclusion.

8 “It Isn’t Power. It’s called Punishment. You don’t deserve anything.”

‘Glorious Five-Year Plan,’ Episode 4

Hughie and Butcher are one of The Boys’ finest duos. Though Hughie is generally Butcher’s canary, bringing him to the light, Hughie loses himself to his rage after discovering the truth about Victoria Neuman this season. Butcher is willing to risk his life to “level the f*cking playing field” with Temp-V in order to murder Homelander, but he will not allow Hughie to do the same.

Butcher accepts his destiny and hopes Hughie isn’t caught in the crossfire. Unfortunately, he didn’t anticipate Hughie’s fury boiling so hot that he’d steal some simply to feel less powerless.

7 “Go ahead, Son. Enjoy A Bump.”

‘Payback’ is the first episode.

Butcher rescues Frenchie and Kimiko from Termite by dumping the supe into his own bag of coke after one of the show’s strangest and most gruesome deaths. Butcher’s ominous expression throughout this remark and as he prepares to squish Termite is unexpectedly funny. They now work for the Bureau of Superhuman Affairs, which is headed by Hughie.

Butcher grudgingly leaves the superhero alive after remembering there is to be “no violence or maiming,” but not before delivering some more amusing remarks such as calling him a “lightweight,” a “c***,” and comparing the manslaughter-ing supe presently overdosing to Pinocchio’s Jiminy Cricket.

6 “I despised every second of it. No, the V just made me more of myself.”

‘The Last Time To Look At This World Of Lies,’ Episode 5

When Russia proves to be a dead end, Butcher seeks refuge in Maeve and drink. He tells Maeve that, despite the power he felt, he despised being a supe. Now that he understands that the V “amps up” what’s already within supes, he becomes even more motivated in his quest, even going so far as to use Spider-famed Man’s line “With enormous power” leads to the “absolute certainty” of turning evil – but with his normal degree of additional profanity.

This side-character with major character energy, like Butcher, suffers from self-hatred and has been trained to sacrifice herself while battling Homelander. In their misery, they end up having sex in the workplace, which, although unexpected, is not unusual given their similar personalities and vendettas against Homelander.

5 “Well, then, please f*ck off.”

‘The Instant White-Hot Wild,’ Episode 8

Despite Annie’s warnings concerning the lethal nature of Temp-V, Butcher takes one more dosage. Though he is willing to murder himself while annihilating Homelander, he utilizes the last of his abilities on Soldier Boy.

Butcher smokes a cigarette after receiving a fatal prognosis in the hospital. While the doctor is eager to urge him to depart, he only has a year to 18 months. Butcher, feeling defenseless and mortal, requests the doctor to leave him alone in the most courteous manner imaginable. The season 3 finale left the lads in a difficult situation and raised many concerns.

4 “Becca might be alive and well. And I’ll never… forgive you for it.”

‘Barbary Coast,’ Episode 3

Despite his Temp-V hangover, Butcher travels to see Colonel Mallory and Ryan to find out more about Soldier Boy’s death. Butcher feels betrayed by the person who pushed him to exact vengeance on Becca as it finds out she knew everything about this alleged weapon for years. He’ll never forgive Mallory for not killing Homelander sooner with this weapon.

In this comment, he demonstrates his genuine concern for Ryan and his life “moving from one safe home to the next.” However, in the next scene, Butcher pulls Ryan aside to keep him safe. Worried that his poisonous and dangerous personality would infect such a fragile and strong boy, he incorrectly feels that the best way to remove himself from Ryan’s life is to make him despise his pseudo-stepfather.

3 “You Don’t Listen To Him.”

‘Here Comes A Candle To Light You To Bed,’ Episode 7

Season 3’s heavy-hitting themes have featured intergenerational trauma and toxic masculinity via characters like Butcher and Soldier Boy, both of whom were harmed in some form by their dads. Butcher’s secret background is revealed in its full in the final episode, and it is hard to see.

As the bigger brother, Billy throws himself in his father’s way to protect Lenny from harm. However, while Butcher grows up and makes his father proud, Lenny is made to feel less of a “man” by behaving like “a f*cking little poof.” While adolescent Billy remains silent, Butcher eventually advises Lenny not to listen to their father and wishes he could have said it sooner.

2 “He may be found at 673 Nosh My Bollocks Ave. Do you need a pen and paper?”

‘Payback’ is the first episode.

Homelander becomes the frightening he’s ever been in the episode, yet he really cares for Ryan. Homelander wants his kid to experience the childhood he never had and will travel to Butcher’s house to locate him. Butcher discloses Homelander Ryan’s address in a hilarious way, but it will most likely lead to a dead end.

They had a terrible but emotional talk about their outmoded positions in this new society, knowing Butcher would not divulge anything. Their “scorched earth” discussion might even foretell The Boys’ ultimate clash between these two amazing characters, which fans are dying to witness.

1 “You are an exact replica of my younger brother.”

‘The Instant White-Hot Wild,’ Episode 8

Despite giving supporters heart palpitations as it seemed he was about to lure Hughie to his death with Temp-V, he ambushed Hughie outside the toilet. Butcher ultimately tells Hughie how much he reminds him of his younger brother Lenny before knocking him out and abandoning him on the restroom floor of a petrol station.

It’s an emotional scene that finishes with a sucker punch, and it makes Hughie understand how much Butcher feels for him. While Butcher despises himself, he would go to any length to protect Hughie since he couldn’t do the same for Lenny.

The Boys: Erin Moriarty Teases Shocking Season 4 Storylines

Season 4 of Prime Video’s The Boys has already begun production, and the group is already teasing spectators with all of the surprises in store. Specifically, actress Erin Moriarty, who teased something unusual on social media.

Moriarty remarked in an Instagram story, “Don’t say I didn’t warn you.” Attached was a photo showing herself and co-stars Jack Quaid, Karen Fukuhara, Tomer Capone, and Laz Alonso gazing out of a vault-like area, similar to the one they were in during Season 3.

Vernon Sanders, Amazon Studios’ head of global television, previously teased the escalation of The Boys, saying before Season 3’s release, “We knew from our first conversation with Eric Kripke and the creative team about Season Three of The Boys that the show was going to get even bolder – an impressive feat given the show’s Emmy-nominated second season… The Boys keeps pushing narrative limits while simultaneously being compulsively entertaining and threading the line on social satire that seems all too true.”

Season 4 was announced before of Season 3’s broadcast, with actor Karl Urban announcing in March, “I’m filming The Boys until the end of the year.” This followed previous claims, dating back to 2021, that Prime Video had approved a fourth season.

In Season 3, Billy Butcher and Hughie used a temporary version of Compound V to take on the Vought and members of The Seven. Butcher and the Boys, desperate to bring Homelander down, searched for and awoke a dormant supe, Soldier Boy. While specifics about the new season’s narrative are scant, actor Jensen Ackles hinted that the Seven’s previous leader may not have met his end.

Season 4 of The Boys won’t be available on Prime Video for a while, but the Vought Universe has lots more in store. Prime Video is producing a spinoff series set on a supe college in addition to a second season of the anthology series The Boys Presents: Diabolical! The project, dubbed Gen-V, is the franchise’s first live-action spinoff. Jaz Sinclair as Marie Moreau, Chance Perdomo as Emma Shaw, Shelley Conn, Maddie Phillips, London Thor, Derek Luh, Asa Germann, Patrick Schwarzenegger as Golden Boy, Sean Patrick Thomas as Polarity, and Marco Pigossi as Doctor Edison Cardosa are among the cast members.

The Boys’ first three seasons, as well as The Boys Presents: Diabolical!, are now accessible on Prime Video.

Jensen Ackles Landing The Role On The Boys Just As Supernatural Was Ending (And Beat Movie Stars To Do It)

Jensen Ackles is no longer Dean Winchester from Supernatural, and his follow-up role as Soldier Boy on The Boys took a drastically different turn. His new

Jensen Ackles is no longer Dean Winchester from Supernatural, and his follow-up role as Soldier Boy on The Boys took a drastically different turn. His new post resulted in a Supernatural reunion, since creator Eric Kripke also oversees the Amazon Prime program. The actor has spoken openly about how he landed Soldier Boy just as Supernatural was wrapping up. It even included defeating some Hollywood stars.

Eric Kripke described how Jensen Ackles got the part of Soldier Boy in 2021, but now it’s Ackles’ turn to tell his side of the tale. In a recent interview with Men’s Health, he discussed his experience on The Boys and how he got the part of Supe. Soldier Boy was originally intended for an older actor, but when Ackles contacted Kripke to ask his thoughts on a different project, the discussion took an unexpected turn: “I said, ‘So what’s going on over there at The Boys?” We were about to finish watching Supernatural when I realized, ‘You know, I’m going to be jobless.’ I just tossed it out there playfully. ‘Look, dude, if you want to come over to The Boys, I’ll bring you over here no problem,’ he offered right away. I’d be delighted to have you.’ ‘Sign me up!’ I said.

Given that Supernatural was nearing the end of its 15-season run, it’s no surprise that Ackles leaped at the chance to join The Boys! The actor said that Kripke gave him several audition tapes and that he instantly wanted in.

However, Ackles was skeptical that he would even receive the role. While he didn’t say who since he’d be blacklisted, he did say that after hearing who was on the shortlist, he was certain he wasn’t going to get Soldier Boy: I do know that there were certain names that I believe the network was considering. A brief list of names was provided. And when [Kripke] recited a handful of those names to me, I said to myself, ‘Oh, well, there’s no way.’ I don’t stand a chance. Those people are Hollywood stars.’

Fortunately, Jensen Ackles was cast as Soldier Boy, and the rest is history. It makes me wonder who else was up for the position and who made Ackles so concerned that he wouldn’t win it. Maybe one of those actors will appear as a different hero in The Boys Season 4, when it airs?

Meanwhile, Ackles was not the only Supernatural performer to go right into a new project once the show wrapped. Jared Padalecki agreed to play the title character in the Walker revival before the last season of Supernatural had even wrapped (and prior to the COVID shutdowns). Walker launched in SPN’s timeslot the following year, and the third season is already in the works, with prequel series Walker: Independence set to debut this autumn. In addition, Ackles’ Supernatural prequel The Winchesters will air in a few months.

There isn’t much information regarding The Boys Season 4 or if Soldier Boy will return. It’s unclear if he’ll return to cause more havoc now that he’s been taken back under and frozen in the season finale. Jensen Ackles, on the other hand, has been cast as a series regular on ABC’s Big Sky.

Season 3 of The Boys is now accessible with an Amazon Prime membership, while all 15 seasons of Supernatural are available with a Netflix subscription.

In One Important Way, The Boys’ Soldier Boy Outperforms Captain America

While The Boys’ Soldier Boy seemed to be a crude parody of Marvel Comics’ Captain America, the copycat supe actually outperformed the original in one essen

While The Boys’ Soldier Boy seemed to be a crude parody of Marvel Comics’ Captain America, the copycat supe actually outperformed the original in one essential way—at least in terms of the live-action version.

Soldier Boy (Jensen Ackles) is a Super Soldier in the Amazon Prime Video original series The Boys who was produced via the usage of Compound V—a serum that can convert individuals into superhumans. Soldier Boy was originally only extraordinarily strong and invulnerable. However, after extensive testing in a Russian laboratory, Soldier Boy obtained the ability to take away the abilities of other superheroes with a catastrophic explosion that he can generate from inside his own body. While that powerful skill is amazing (and one that Captain America lacks), it isn’t the reason The Boys’ Soldier Boy is more impressive than Captain America. The true explanation is significantly more subtle, but immensely more helpful in combat settings.

The Avengers receive a distress call from a region of the planet that has been taken over by communist tyranny in Avengers #18 by Stan Lee and Don Heck, which was a huge matter given that this issue was published not long after the ‘Red Scare’ in the United States. Following a distress signal from a place in eastern Asia, the Avengers are met by communist officials from that region who pose as people in danger in order to deceive the Avengers into falling into their trap, all as part of their strategy to show that communism was better to capitalism. When the Avengers realize their error in taking this call, they are promptly attacked with a knockout gas that renders all of them unconscious, including Captain America.

The Boys’ Soldier Boy is Superior to Captain America in One Key Way

M.M. tosses a smoke grenade at Soldier Boy in The Boys season 3 episode 6 titled ‘Herogasm,’ but Soldier Boy picks up the grenade and inhales the deadly smoke merely for the head rush, indicating that it has absolutely no effect on him at all. Captain America’s physique isn’t as powerful as Soldier Boy’s, as seen by Cap being put unconscious by the same chemical that took out Hawkeye, who is practically just an ordinary human, in Avengers #18. Being resistant to sleeper gas during a combat is very valuable since it is generally one of the first things an adversary would attempt to employ to target a group of heroes they intend to capture. Soldier Boy can only be knocked unconscious by a fatal nerve poison, therefore if he had been in Captain America’s place in this Avengers issue, the enemies would have had no idea what struck them.

Of course, this comparison is only valid between the comic book Captain America and the live-action Soldier Boy, since Soldier Boy in the comics cannot compete with any version of Captain America. Butcher immediately kills the Soldier Boy from The Boys comics after he is repeatedly insulted and molested by Homelander. Soldier Boy in the comics is the polar opposite of Captain America in terms of strength and ferocious courage. While The Boys’ live-action Soldier Boy is similarly a dark twist on a Captain America-like figure, he is more strong than the original since his body can withstand much more torture than Marvel’s top Super Soldier.

Following that, Captain America’s Avengers training is much too grueling for the MCU.
