7 Questions We Need Answered in ‘The Boys’ Season 3

The Boys Season 2 finale

[Warning: The below contains MAJOR spoilers for Season 2 of The Boys.]

The Boys‘ second season delivered more twists and turns for fans to sort through before the next chapter in this series arrives (which is likely to take a while).

As the Boys continued their fight against the Supes, things took an even more personal turn in the final episode which saw Butcher (Karl Urban) and the rest of the Boys — Hughie (Jack Quaid), Mother’s Milk (Laz Alonso), Kimiko (Karen Fukuhara) and Frenchie (Tomer Capon) — aid in helping Becca (Shantel VanSanten) find her son Ryan (Cameron Crovetti) and escape from Vought and Homelander’s (Antony Starr) clutches.

The mission had some positive and adverse results but if you haven’t seen the epic installment for yourself, it’s best to stop reading now because we’re heading into major spoiler territory.

Along with the rescue effort, the addressing of Stormfront’s (Aya Cash) Nazi roots played an essential role in the episode. What will this reveal mean for the rest of the show moving forward? Below, we’re raising some of the biggest questions that we have following The Boys Season 2 finale that will hopefully be answered in Season 3. And let us know, below, which questions you’d like answered when the Amazon Prime Video hit eventually returns.

The Boys, Season 2, Streaming now, Amazon Prime Video

The Boys Season 2 Fresca

What's the deal with Fresca?

Fresca was repeatedly introduced in the season as a beverage offering among the Church of the Collective. While this seemed like a silly gimmick, it’s relevancy shouldn’t be undervalued since there’s likely a reason for its presence in the story. At first it seemed like the drink could have something to do with the exploding heads situation or maybe the members’ loyalty to the church. Either way, fans never received an answer or hint as to its function, so we hope Fresca makes a clearer return in Season 3.

The Boys Season 2 Butcher Ryan

Did Butcher make the right decision?

When Ryan attacked Stormfront with his laser vision for hurting his mother, Becca fell victim to a shrapnel injury, and as she lay dying she made Billy Butcher promise he’d protect the boy. “It’s not his fault, you make sure he knows that,” she said, trying to convince the Supe-hating Butcher that Ryan was a victim of circumstance rather than an uncontrollable danger. Eventually we see him send Ryan off with Mallory (Laila Robins) who will attempt to keep the boy safe from Vought’s clutches. But was this the right decision? Butcher claims that he couldn’t raise the boy properly, and perhaps he’s right, but he did promise to care for Ryan and how can he do that if he’s under someone else’s care? Hopefully Season 3 will see Butcher keep good on his word by visiting Ryan, but only time will tell.

Jessie T. Usher as A-Train in The Boys - Season 2

Will A-Train be an ally?

A-Train (Jessie T. Usher) has become a bit more humble in Season 2 after his expulsion from the Seven and health challenges following his Season 1 heart attack, but will that make him an ally to the Boys? In the finale, he delivered the file on Stormfront’s history to Hughie and Starlight (Erin Moriarty), giving them a key advantage against the ageless Supe. While A-Train claimed he only did it so he could get back in the Seven, we can’t help but feel that he’s not as bad as he used to be. The fact that he could converse with Hughie and Starlight so calmly proves that the initial animosity over the Season 1 death of Hughie’s old girlfriend Robin may have faded a bit. It would be fun to see A-Train use his powers for “good.”

The Boys Season 2 Queen Maeve

What is going to happen to Queen Maeve?

In the climactic forest scene of the finale, Homelander discovers a dying Stormfront next to Butcher, Becca and Ryan. Before he has time to react as rashly as fans have come to know, Queen Maeve (Dominique McElligott) shows up and blackmails him with video from the Season 1 plane crash in which he refused to save anyone. Maeve tells Homelander that he’s going to let them go or she’ll release the video essentially ruining his already frail public image. He says he’ll destroy everything and everyone if she does, but Maeve doesn’t seem to care. “Great, as long as everyone sees what a f**king monster you are,” she countered. Is Maeve willing to die in order to show people who Homelander really is? It seems that way, but will she really suffer or is Homelander going to outwit her?

The Boys Season 2 Victoria Neuman

Is Victoria Neuman the next villain?

After confusion over this season’s exploding heads, fans finally learned that the congress woman Victoria Neuman (Claudia Doumit) was responsible. Despite pushing an anti-Supe agenda, she’s endowed with powers herself, which makes us wonder, is she one of the Super Terrorists that Vought was villainizing this season or is she using her powers to manipulate the political climate? Considering Hughie appeared to be pursing a job with her campaign, we’ll hopefully see more of her in Season 3 to better understand her motivations.

Can Vought recover from this PR nightmare?

Before Stormfront was killed, Hughie and Starlight leaked her file to the press, unveiling her as Frederick Vought’s wife with Nazi ties. In the fallout left behind, CEO Stan Edgar (Giancarlo Esposito) was seen speaking to reporters with Seven members Homelander, Starlight and Queen Maeve. Can the conglomerate rehab their image? It seems that Stan was pushing the idea that Stormfront was singular in her actions and didn’t reflect the current company’s standards. It’s becoming clear that the multi-million dollar company is skating on thinner and thinner ice as time goes on. Will it finally break in Season 3?

Chace Crawford as The Deep in The Boys - Season 2

Will the Deep finally see sense?

The Deep (Chace Crawford) has never been the brightest, but his commitment to the Church of the Collective didn’t have the result he was hoping for, which was a re-entrance into the Seven. Will his being fed up with the situation he’s found himself in finally allow him to think for himself and pave a new path? We’d like to hope so, but it’s hard to predict where he’ll go in Season 3.
