The Boys 3 Episode 8 : Everything You Missed
The Boys’ third season finale sums up several significant stories by making use of significant comic book situations. You can find all of the Easter eggs here.
Here’s everything you might have missed from The Boys season 3, episode 8, including any humorous Easter eggs and pop culture and real-world allusions. The Boys’ second wild season is already in the books. The third season of the popular superhero series on Prime Video was always building to the grand finale, in which The Boys and Soldier Boy (Jensen Ackles) join forces to take on Homelander (Antony Starr). The Supe-filled rematch did not turn out as most expected because it turned out to be just as unexpected as many other aspects of the season’s plot.
Both of the Supes’ mental states are a little altered when they cross paths again following the twist in The Boys season 3, episode 7 that revealed Soldier Boy to be Homelander’s biological father. But in the end, they were unable to develop a warm father-son bond, which prompted a significant rematch. To combat Homelander, Soldier Boy initially enlists the help of Billy Butcher (Karl Urban) and Queen Maeve (Dominique McElligott), but soon all of the Boys get engaged. In the season 3 finale of The Boys, Butcher discovers the full costs of using Temp-V, while Hughie Campbell (Jack Quaid) discovers new ways to be a hero and Starlight (Erin Moriarty) levels up as a Supe.
Many of the major plotlines from the third season are resolved in the thrilling ending, which includes characters like A-Train (Jessie T. Usher) and Victoria Neuman (Claudia Doumit). There are Easter eggs in The Boys season 3, episode 8, but showrunner Eric Kripke and his writing staff keep the majority of the attention on the stories at hand. There are many nuances in The Boys season 3, episode 8 that some viewers may have missed, whether they are references to the comics and earlier episodes of Prime Video’s show or nods to current events and popular culture.
The Boys Continues the Mystery of Hughie’s Mom
The season three finale of The Boys has a brief passage in which the mother of protagonist Hughie is alluded to. Hughie’s life before the show has not received much attention in the program, although Simon Pegg’s portrayal of his father has helped to fill in some of the blanks. What happened to Hughie’s mother, though, is among the major unanswered questions concerning his background. Hughie and the audience don’t know why mom left when he was little; all that is known is that she did. According to theories, Hughie’s mother might be a Supe or she might have departed when Hughie was unable to become one. Although Hughie’s most recent mention of his mother in The Boys season 3, episode 8 does not disclose anything new about her, it is certain to keep her in viewers’ minds going ahead.
Perhaps Soldier Boy has more children than Homelander.
Another hint that Soldier Boy might have children in addition to Homelander can be found in The Boys season 3, episode 8. While Vought created Homelander using Soldier Boy’s DNA, his propensity for having multiple partners before Payback betrayed him made it possible for him to do so. In the season 3 finale, Jensen Ackles’ character confesses that he has always wanted children and believed there was a possibility that infant Soldier Boys were out there. Homelander and Becca demonstrated how superheroes may get pregnant with regular people and have children with superpowers. Homelander is descended from Soldier Boy, therefore perhaps there are some more of his offspring wandering the globe.
Reversing the Fate of Homelander and Black Noir in Season 3 of The Boys
There are several surprises in The Boys season 3, episode 8, but Black Noir’s murder by Homelander is one of the biggest. This occurs when Black Noir’s intestines are torn out by The Seven’s co-captain after punching through his stomach. Black Noir underwent a significant transformation in the Prime Video series, which ignored the humorous twist that he was a Homelander clone. In the end, that twist caused Black Noir to murder Homelander, but now The Boys season 3 turns their fortunes around. Black Noir is killed by Homelander in this scene, despite the fact that the picture of his guts protruding from his body resembles the wounds he receives during their struggle in the comics.
Soldier Boy Recreates A Captain America Moment From Avengers: Endgame
There were several Captain America allusions in The Boys season 3 when Soldier Boy made his debut. The characters of Soldier Boy and Steve Rogers could not be more dissimilar, despite the fact that he is a super-soldier from the past who reawakens in the present. Nevertheless, the series was able to recreate a couple of Captain America’s most memorable scenes from the Marvel Cinematic Universe due to their similarities. When Soldier Boy’s shield cracks during the decisive battle, this is continued in The Boys season 3, episode 8. During his battle with Thanos in Avengers: Endgame, Captain America’s shield was similarly damaged. After being heated by Butcher’s laser vision and being shot by Mother’s Milk (Laz Alonso), Soldier Boy’s shield breaks. Soldier Boy takes up a piece of the broken shield to attempt to continue the fight, just as Captain America strapped the broken shield to his chest to face Thanos’ army. However, the broken shield is not enough to stop any of these super-soldiers.
Starlight Can Fly: The Boys Season 3
In The Boys season 3 episode 8, Starlight receives somewhat of a watershed moment when it is revealed that she can fly. Almost every Vought Supe has the power to fly in the comics, but The Boys has significantly altered that. In the third season finale of The Boys, Starlight eventually demonstrates that she can fly as well, provided she has enough energy to do so. Although she doesn’t fly in the air, it is still a significant advancement for her abilities. Since Annie first reveals to Hughie that she is a Supe by lingering in place, starlight flying even has a big impact on their comedic relationship. Hughie giving Starlight enough electricity to fly is a lovely touch because the show does not need to explain that information.
Unlike the comics, Maeve Saves Starlight
Another humorous allusion may be found in The Boys season 3, episode 8 when Queen Maeve spares Starlight from an imminent death. To prevent Homelander from killing Starlight, Queen Maeve in the comics throws her out of The Seven’s tower. As a result, Queen Maeve is killed by Homelander. Numerous hypotheses suggested that The Boys season 3 would imitate this scene and have Queen Maeve sacrifice herself to save Starlight. Annie is right in the line of fire as Soldier Boy’s radioactive and power-sucking powers start to charge up. Instead of remaining silent as Starlight perishes, Queen Maeve rushes in and throws Soldier Boy out the window. Despite what the general public believes, it enables The Boys to give Maeve an equally valiant deed.
Maeve’s ex-girlfriend returns, and the two are reuniting.
Another complication was added when it was revealed that Queen Maeve had survived her run-in with Soldier Boy but has lost her authority. After pretending to be dead, Starlight encounters Queen Maeve at The Boys’ former lair, where she is not by herself. Elena, Maeve’s ex-girlfriend, is seen with her. Elena makes her first appearance in The Boys season 3 since she was last seen in season 2 leaving Maeve to find some space and choose whether or not they would ever get back together. It seems Maeve and Elena are prepared to begin a new life together despite never even being mentioned before. The Boys season 4 will examine whether or not it endures, but it appears that Queen Maeve is receiving a largely happy ending in this episode.
About Her Missing Power, Maeve Makes Jokes
The absence of Queen Maeve’s power in The Boys season 3, episode 8 is also mentioned. Maeve makes the statement that Annie can fly while she can only leap as she bids Starlight farewell. But those who are acquainted with the comics know that Queen Maeve is able to fly. Even Maeve’s missing flight abilities were restored in The Boys Presents: Diabolical, coupled with a more comic-convincing appearance. The season three conclusion of The Boys makes a reference to the missing powers rather than maybe using Maeve’s brave deed to demonstrate that she can fly.
Victoria Neuman Approaches Her Comics Rival
The season three finale of The Boys makes a reference to Victoria Neuman’s story from the comics. In the comics, Victor Neuman succeeds President Robert “Dakota Bob” Schaefer as Vice President. In The Boys, season 3, episode 8, Dakota Bob picks Victoria Neuman as his running mate. She is currently following the same course as her comic book counterpart, who includes Homelander using a Supe army to invade Washington after Neuman was elected president of the United States of America. A similar storyline might be coming up as a result of The Boys season 3, episode 8’s mention to Neuman.
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.
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.
