Even worse, these exact same supes know that our heroes have a severe worth on their heads after how every thing performed out final season. So with their backs in opposition to the wall and the general public shopping for into the hype of getting supes embedded with the navy, there’s just one factor for our Spice Ladies-loving chief to do: hearth up “Radio Butcher” and begin dropping fact bombs about Vought and the supes.
However earlier than we get to that, here is somewhat breaking information as we have been scripting this: Shawn Ashmore (“X-Males” movie franchise) will probably be taking over the notorious function of “retired” The Seven member Lamplighter. Possessing the facility of pyrokinesis (you need to admire the irony) that he wields by way of his workers, it was Lamplighter who Mallory (Laila Robins) talked about as having killed her grandchildren. Serving as the explanation the group initially broke up, Lamplighter’s return would be the “wildcard” that ignites some painful recollections and righteous anger.
“We have been thrilled that Shawn — who’s, let’s be sincere, an OG superhero — wished to play the essential a part of Lamplighter,” stated showrunner Eric Kripke in a press release. “He brings a lot depth, menace, and world-weary humanity to this former member of the Seven.

A extra intense, extra determined Season 2 of The Boys finds Butcher (Karl City), Hughie (Jack Quaid), and the crew wished by something and every thing with a superpower for the mess that was the primary season. So what higher time for our heroes to take the battle on to Vought.

To say that does not sit effectively with Hughie can be an understatement: he needs answers- and a brand new plan. After all, there is no approach that does not come throughout to Butcher as a problem to his management. Yeah, Butcher is not a giant fan of being questioned. Following that, we see what occurs post-whale impaling (yup): As The Deep mourns the lack of Lucy, he appears to persuade Starlight that at some point she would possibly welcome him again on the group. Yeah, that is not gonna happen- till Stormfront steps in. In the meantime, Homelander appears to go underground to proceed the hunt:
