The Boys Season 3 Episode 4 Ending Explained

‘The Boys,’ now in its second season, is causing a lot of trouble for its protagonists. The power balance had been shifting for a long, and it now appears to be tilting in favor of Homelander. Everything that may go wrong does go wrong for our heroes, and the villain appears to be prevailing for the time being. But half of the season is still left, and the program has only just begun to reveal its tricks and turns. The episode ends with us in shock and genuinely concerned for the Boys and Co. Here, we dissect that rocky episode and discuss what it means for the season’s future.

Recap of The Boys Season 3’s “Glorious Five Year Plan”

Butcher meets with Nina to learn more about the weapon he suspects is in Russia. A settlement is reached between them, which does not make Frenchie happy. Meanwhile, Hughie learns Butcher’s use of V-24. He seemed to be interested in giving it a shot, especially after the Homelander debacle. Finally, they are guided to a hidden Russian facility, but what they discover there is beyond their wildest dreams.

Meanwhile, Homelander makes one wise move after another at Vought. He makes his move ahead of time, sensing that Stan Edgar is planning to undercut him again. He blackmails Victoria into turning the tide against Edgar, who has been freed of his duties by Vought for the time being. This puts Homelander in command, making Annie even more determined to get rid of him as quickly as possible. She realizes that Maeve is also involved in the secret weapon scheme and decides it is better to enlist the help of other Supes. Her initial thought is to include Supersonic in the action. However, telling him about the idea turns out to be a terrible error that doesn’t end well for him or Annie.

Ending of The Boys Season 3 Episode 4

When the Boys traveled all the way to Russia to obtain the weapon that would end their fight with Homelander, they were looking for a win. However, towards the end of the episode, they find themselves in a much more perilous scenario. Butcher’s expectations for the weapon stemmed from its ability to slay Soldier Boy, an apparently unkillable Supe. To his chagrin, he not only fails to find the weapon, but also realizes that Soldier Boy isn’t dead after all. So, not only are the Boys back at square one on that front, but they now have another unstable and highly deadly Supe on the loose.

Worse, the gang has lost the thread that was tying them together. Butcher wanted to keep V-24 a secret from the rest of the crew since he knew they wouldn’t like it. Not only is his secret revealed, but Hughie utilizes the serum to get temporary powers as well. This affects MM’s faith in both of them. Furthermore, Soldier Boy’s attempt to flee kills Kimiko. Frenchie is concerned, as is MM, but Hughie is high on the affects of V-24, and Butcher is more concerned with Soldier Boy. The overall incident leads MM to believe that they have lost their integrity and that there is no purpose in remaining together.

While we have yet to see if MM will leave the group for good, the turmoil does not bode well for Annie. When she sensed Homelander was losing it, she wanted to quit the Seven. She stayed, though, because of the promise of the secret weapon. But, at the end of the episode, Homelander surprises her by revealing Supersonic’s dead body. He informs her that A-Train snitched on them, and Supersonic’s death serves as a warning to her not to attempt another rebellion. Annie is plainly shaken by the experience, and the Boys’ failure to obtain the aforementioned weapon may worsen her condition. Furthermore, Hughie on V may make everything too much for her to bear. What needs to be seen is how Soldier Boy returns to the scene and what it means for the Boys, especially Homelander and Vought.

For the time being, it appears that Homelander has successfully subdued all of his adversaries and is in command. Stan Edgar was the only person he feared or was threatened by. Whatever the extent of Homelander’s abilities, Edgar was always able to keep him under control. His remarks could always put Homelander in his place. He has now been defeated by the Supe, who utilized Edgar’s secret wildcard against him. He now has the upper hand over everyone, including Victoria Neuman, who had earlier wreaked havoc on Homelander.
