Will Hughie pay for killing Translucent?

So, the superheros of this world are a little crooked, but that doesn’t absolve Hughie (Jack Quaid) from being responsible for killing Translucent (Alex Hassell) at the beginning of the season. While fans may have seen the explosive decision being formed in Hughie’s eyes, it doesn’t negate the fact that he killed a supe. We can’t imagine he’ll avoid blowback for that in Season 2, and we at least hope to see it addressed.

What happened with Becca? And how will Homelander and Billy proceed?

Throughout the season, Billy’s (Karl Urban) vendetta against Homelander (Antony Starr) remained shrouded in mystery until we learn he holds the superhero responsible for his wife Becca’s (Shantel VanSanten) disappearance. Billy believes Homelander raped her, and this is corroborated by Vought exec Madelyn (Elisabeth Shue) who says Becca died giving birth to Homelander’s baby. However, in the season’s final moments, Homelander reveals the season’s biggest bombshell…

Becca’s alive and well with her son — Homelander’s child — but things end there. So what’s the story behind her secret living situation? Why were her whereabouts hidden from Billy?

Will Starlight branch out from “The Seven”?

The newest member of the Vought-run superhero team is clearly good at her core whereas some of her co-workers really are not. Considering Starlight (Erin Moriarty) set out to help Hughie and “The Boys” escape death, she’s not unwilling to help the “opposition.” Could this move be seen as a betrayal to her fellow supes? Or maybe it is the kind of decision that will push her to pursue what’s more important than fame — genuine kindness.

Is A-Train dead?

When A-Train (Jessie T. Usher) confronts Hughie in the season finale, he collapses from a presumed heart attack caused by Compound V. While Starlight takes over CPR for Hughie as he tries to escape, we can’t help but wonder if the “fastest man alive” will pull through to Season 2.

Is The Deep out of “The Seven” officially?

Viewers saw sex offender and “The Seven” team member The Deep (Chace Crawford) was sent off on a “special mission” following his public apology to Starlight. But in the finale episode, he learns he’ll be staying on in Sandusky, Ohio in the meantime. Will he be booted as a member of “The Seven” in Season 2?

Will Queen Maeve stand up for what’s right?

While she’s not free of blame for some terrible actions in the first season, Queen Maeve (Dominique McElligott) is just slightly less crooked than her fellow veteran “The Seven” members. When she and Homelander attempt to save a plane overtaken by terrorists, she shows that her desire to serve and protect is there, but her powers weren’t enough to get the job done. She’s obviously fed up with Homelander’s phony act — especially after he refused to save anyone on board the crashing plane. Could she expose him for the villain he is in Season 2? Or will fear win out?

What’s next after Madelyn?

Who will take Madelyn’s role now that Homelander literally fried her brain with his laser-beam eyes? Could Homelander’s decision to eliminate her be the beginning of the end when it comes to regular humans? The Captain America/Superman-like Homelander mentioned a desire to break off and live free without the corporate control of Vought International. Could Madelyn’s death be the first stage of an unspoken plan?
