Season 3 of The Boys is about to draw its conclusion this week.
Friday, the last episode of the third season of The Boys will stream on Amazon Prime Video. If we already know that a fourth burst of episodes is in preparation, the grand finale of this week promises to be particularly trying for viewers.
The least we can say is that season 3 reshuffled the cards between Homelander and Butcher. The Boys team literally imploded, but she also found hope for victory in bringing Soldier Boy back to the fold. Now in good company, and flanked by powers with not always pleasant side effects, Butcher and Hughie are more than ever ready to fight.
Scorched earth. Shock and awe. Blood and bone.

This eighth and final episode promises to be bloody. In the meantime, the SVOD platform has shared a short teaser on social networks. The pressure mounts a notch, and the final fight is preparing. While Black Noir and Homelander seem to have decided to send Soldier Boy back to death, we learned in episode 7 that a very special bond united the two great heroes of America.
It remains to be seen how Eric Kripke will decide to bring this conclusion to the screen. The director has already promised an explosive finale, even more violent than Herogasm. Not everyone will make it out alive from season 3, it will probably be necessary to say goodbye to some emblematic figures of the series. The official account of the saga has also not deprived itself to warn the most sensitive: there will be “super dead“, even if we still do not know who it is.
However, it is difficult to make the slightest prediction: the adaptation on the small screen of The Boys quickly distanced itself from the original comics, bringing a new reading and new challenges compared to the original story. Recall that in Garth Ennis’ comics, Homelander and Little Soldier sleep together during the Herogasm arc. A scene that would take on a whole new meaning in the series.
