The boys summary of season 3, episode 6
Now that Homelander knows that Soldier Boy has returned, he decides he must find and kill him. Meanwhile, Soldier Boy tells Billy that if he helps him find his old team, he will kill Homelander. As The Female, aka Kimiko, texts Frenchie, she gets attacked. A-Train wants charges against Blue Hawk for his violent attack and paralysis of his brother, but Ashley calls him for his hypocritical behavior.
As Homelander grapples with recent events, Soldier Boy tells Hughie he didn’t mean to kill anyone; instead, he simply passed out. Billy finds an address for the TNT Twins, so Hughie does more Compound V. Starlight and Neuman have a talk, and Neuman reveals that she knows Hughie knows the truth about her. But rather than kill Hughie, Neuman wants her and Starlight to team up while increasing their social connections. Neuman claims it’s for his daughter. Starlight, however, responds with “f**k you” and either “blow your head off” or “out of hell.”
As Nina holds Frenchie hostage, she threatens The Female’s life. And just when it looks like the female might die, she breaks free and unleashes a bloody rampage. This nearly results in her death, but when her powers return, she is able to stab the thug who had tried to kill her. In the aftermath, Frenchie and The Female learn that Nina is gone.
After Marvin reveals that Soldier Boy is responsible for his grandfather’s death, he and Starlight go to an orgy for heroes. Starlight fears that Soldier Boy will slaughter everyone there, unaware that Hughie is also at the party. After Marvine is sliced into superhero c*m, Starlight walks into The Deep having sex with an octopus. She learns from The Deep that it was Homelander’s idea to attend the orgy. And when Hughie falls into A-Train, he uses his new powers to punch him.
When danger levels increase, Hughie teleports Starlight. As a result, they both argue, and Hughie eventually admits that it bothers him that Starlight is more powerful than him. Marvin comes face to face with Soldier Boy. But when he throws a smoke grenade, it doesn’t matter. And finally, Billy stops Marvin from going any further.
Soldier Boy tracks down the TNT Twins. When he originally says he’ll let them go if he reveals who was to blame, the loud music blasts him. With the TNT Twins and several others dead, Hughie tries to stop Starlight from returning to the ruins. The Deep flees with his octopus while A-Train takes revenge on Blue Hawk and kills him by running him through the streets.
Homelander comes and sees him frisking, and after Soldier Boy mocks him as a “cheap counterfeit”, Homelander, Soldier Boy, and Billy fight. Even Hughie joins us. But in the end, Soldier Boy is unable to kill Homelander. And so, Homelander flies away. In the final moments of the sixth episode of The boys season three, Starlight records a public message going against Homelander. She reveals that Soldier Boy is responsible for the explosion and that something terrible has happened to Queen Maeve. And she ends the message by saying she’s not Starlight, she’s Annie January, and she quit.
