Prime Video's 'The Boys' Season 3 Ending Explained

A show following multiple superheroes with so much swearing and adult content. The critically acclaimed show will be back for another season.

Amazon Prime Video’s The Boys is one of the most ambitious superhero shows. With its visuals pushing the boundaries of Amazon’s adult rating, the show has managed to become a crowd favorite. In the fairly recent third season, we see a triple opening release, a sequence titled Herogasm and some brilliant musical pieces. Hughie Campbell (Jack Quaid) reteams with Billy Butcher (Karl Urban) and the Boys to take out Homelander (Antony Starr) once and for all by harnessing the energy blasts from Payback leader Soldier Boy (Jensen Ackles), Collider reported.


While this is the main plotline that most heroes seem to be working towards, there is another plot point of the Temp V that has created some conflict, especially between Annie (Erin Moriarty) and Hughie. All he wanted to do was protect her but she was unhappy with how he was constantly putting himself in danger.  At this point, Butcher teams up with Soldier Boy to rid the world of Homelander (it would do them all good). 


However, Butcher switches allegiance when he sees that Soldier Boy is an unstable grandson-attacking violent man. It is surprising because even after Soldier Boy realizes that Homelander is his son and Ryan is his grandson, he still decided to attack a little child. While Homelander is still annoying, it doesn’t warrant people hurting his son. Homelander is clearly a little touchy when it comes to family. Like when he found out that Black Noir (Nathan Mitchell) knew about Soldier Boy being his father, he punched him out of existence. 


If there is a character that is truly a gem, it would be Queen Maeve (Dominique McElligott) who saved thousands of people's lives even if it meant losing her powers and forgoing the target. She careened Soldier Boy out of the window after realizing that one more blast could collapse the building they were fighting in. Now, she is free to leave Vought and do whatever she likes because all they know is that she is dead. Annie finally left Vought and also joined The Boys which would be an exciting thing to see in the next season because her powers have expanded beyond understanding.


Compound V makes an appearance again when Kimiko (Karen Fukuhara) convinces Frenchie (Tomer Capone) to inject her with it. She also joins the purpose of beating Homelander before shifting her focus on Soldier Boy. Homelander has really established himself as one of the most hated characters because characters and fans alike absolutely loathe the character. Last year it was John Walker in Falcon and the Winter Soldier, this time it is this Homelander that has become the internet’s favorite love-to-hate character. 


The Boys Seasons 1, 2 and 3 are streaming on Amazon Prime Video.
