‘The Boys’: Blondie Reacts to Jensen Ackles’ Soldier Boy Singing ‘Rapture’
[WARNING: The following contains MAJOR spoilers for The Boys Season 3 Episode 4, “Glorious Five-Year Plan.”]
While Ackles popped up in the first three episodes through flashbacks, Soldier Boy made quite an impression in the fourth installment’s opening moments as Mother’s Milk (Laz Alonso) watched a clip from an old variety show titled Solid Gold. During this segment, Ackles showed off his musical talent by performing Blondie’s “Rapture.”
As the Captain America-like figure sings into the microphone, he’s flanked by the Solid Gold Dancers in a groovy number filled with flashing lights, a disco ball, and interesting outfits. The wordy lyrics were delivered in such a way by Ackles that it caught the attention of Blondie lead singer Debbie Harry.

The singer took to Twitter, sharing the video of Ackles’ performance and writing, “Holy sh*t!! Epic @TheBoysTV.” In response, The Boys‘ Antony Starr tweeted at Harry, “Epic indeed!! The version you never knew you needed👍🏼😂.”
The songstress further revealed herself as a fan by responding to Starr’s tweet with, “Homelander lazer us!!!”
And this is just a small part of Soldier Boy’s role in the pivotal episode which saw the Boys travel to Russia in order to find a Supe-killing weapon and complete a job for Little Nina (Katia Winter), unaware that it would lead them to Soldier Boy himself. When the vigilantes infiltrated a secret lab, they uncovered a perfectly preserved Soldier Boy who is harboring some pretty powerful super abilities.
Stay tuned to see what’s next from Soldier Boy as The Boys Season 3 continues on Prime Video and catch the video of Ackles singing, above.
