After the copious fluids of Herogasm (and dedicated memes ).
The third season of The Boys will return on Friday with the penultimate episode, entitled Here Comes a Candle to Light You to Bed .
In the spot we can see Queen Maeve ( Dominique McElligott ), locked up somewhere after Homelander ( Antony Starr ) discovered her “betrayal”. Meanwhile, Soldier Boy ( Jensen Ackles ) unleashes his fury on someone, in a scene reminiscent of the finale of the fourth episode of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier . The hashtag accompanying the video reads #TheBoysStrikeBack , so we can imagine Butcher ( Karl Urban ) and Hughie ( Jack Quaid ) will be looking for a rematch.
The episode will obviously be released on Amazon Prime Video . I remind you that the show has already been renewed for the fourth season.
You can see the spot below.
Not sure what else to say, other than your brain’s gonna be leakin’ after this one. #TheBoysStrikeBack pic.twitter.com/cxKxr3699X

The synopsis of the series
Hughie (Jack Quaid, The Hunger Games) suffers a devastating loss at the hands of the reckless A-Train. His suffering from him turns to anger when he discovers that there is no legal recourse for those who suffer harm from superheroes. While trying to recover, Hughie meets a mysterious agent, Billy Butcher (Karl Urban, Star Trek), who recruits him to join him in the search for a justice that regulates the behavior of Superheroes, who are not what they seem.
THE BOYS is a series that shows what happens when superheroes – who are famous as celebrities, influential as politicians and revered as gods – abuse their powers. At the center of the episodes is the struggle between lack and excess of power: The Boys embark on a heroic quest to unmask the reality concerning the Seven and the Vought, the billionaire conglomerate that manages the Seven themselves and their dirty secrets.
The team consists of Billy Butcher ( Karl Urban ), the Frenchman ( Tomer Capon ), Breast Milk ( Laz Alonso ), the Female of the Species ( Karen Fukuhara ) and Little Hughie ( Jack Quaid ).
Supergroup Seven Justice League spoof includes Patriot ( Antony Starr ), Abyss ( Chace Crawford ), Queen Maeve ( Dominique McElligott ), A-Train ( Jessie T. Usher ), Black Noir ( Nathan Mitchell ), Translucent ( Alex Hassell ) and Starlight ( Erin Moriarty ).
Elisabeth Shue plays Madelyn Stillwell , while Simon Pegg is Little Hughie ‘s father: a sensible choice, given that Hughie ‘s face – in the comic – was modeled precisely on that of the English actor.
