The latest episode of The Boys sees a number of prominent characters dying during the events of “Herogasm,” one of Season 3’s most anticipated episode
WARNING: The following article contains spoilers for The Boys Season 3, Episode 6, “Herogasm,” which released Friday on Prime Video.
The events of “Herogasm,” the latest episode of The Boys Season 3, result in the death of a number of key characters.
In “Herogasm,” Billy Butcher, Soldier Boy and Hughie Campbell head to the titular orgy at the TNT Twins’ home to kill them. While inside, Soldier Boy hears Love Sausage’s Russian accent, which causes him to explode, devastating the home they’re in and hurting a number of others. The blast itself kills the TNT Twins pretty much immediately, while presumably leaving a number of other characters without their powers.
Following the explosion, A-Train murders Blue Hawk by dragging him at superspeed, officially getting revenge for what the vigilante did to the Seven member’s brother. Additionally, Homelander arrives and squashes Termite, the Ant-Man-like supe from the start of Season 3.
“Herogasm” is one of the most-anticipated episodes of The Boys Season 3. In the lead-up to the episode’s release, series creator Eric Kripke said the event was unlikely to be topped. Additionally, Soldier Boy actor Jensen Ackles remarked that the crew look traumatized after filming the orgy.
Based on the comic book series by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, The Boys has aired on Prime Video since 2019. The series follows the titular team in its attempt to take down Vought International, a nefarious corporation that profits off of supes, and Homelander, the leader of The Seven, which is a parody of DC’s Justice League. Herogasm was a spinoff series by Ennis, John McCrea and Keith Burns.
One of Prime Video’s most popular shows, The Boys was renewed for Season 4 earlier this month. One spinoff, the animated The Boys Presents: Diabolical, released earlier this year and features some canon content. Additionally, Prime Video is currently working on a live-action spinoff centered on the G-Men, who are The Boys Universe’s version of Marvel’s X-Men. That show is titled The Boys Presents: Varsity. It’s not known at this time exactly when it will hit the streaming service.
New episodes of The Boys Season 3 release Fridays on Prime Video. The next episode of the series, “Here Comes a Candle to Light You to Bed,” releases July 1.
