The Boys Season 3: Trailer and Story up to Now
The trailer was enough to boom the hype for The Boys. The classy pair of Homelander and Soldier Boy returned in the third installment and were ready to display action-packed scenes but no one knew how big this season was going to be about the storyline. Fans consider it to be the best season out of the three seasons and even critics were not ready for this much surprise.
The Boys Season 3 has witnessed tremendous revelations in the storyline. The biggest one can be mentioned as the fact that Temp V could kill Hughie and Butcher if they continue taking it. Finally, Starlight gets to know that more than three doses can prove fatal and informs Butcher about it but it is not clear if Butcher will convey this to Hughie.
The reason behind Black Noir betraying Soldier Boy is also revealed and it comes out that Stan Edgar was behind this. Now Soldier Boy is excluded from this and The Seven gets Homelander as the new leader. The Boys reveals the connection between Homelander and Soldier Boy which was a jawdropping moment in this season.
Vought has actually used Soldier Boy to create Homelander. This makes them a father-son duo and now as it is known that Soldier Boy is Homelander’s father, we can expect a twist in The Boys Season 3 Episode 8. With just a few days left for The Boys Season 3 to release its eighth episode, Soldier Boy has now become a wild card and the final showdown can begin. Which side will Soldier Boy choose?
Is Season 3 Episode 8 the Season Finale? Check Release Date & Time
Episode 7 of The Boys has just been released on 1 July and The Boys Season 3 Episode 8 will drop on the Amazon Prime Video platform on Friday, July 8 at 12 A.M. GMT. As there are different time zones, the USA-based Prime Video subscribers can check for the final episode late Thursday night.
The Boys Season 3 Episode 8 will conclude the current season of series. Yes! it is going to be the season finale and it is unclear if it will justify the ending because episode 7 witnessed so many revelations and it will be very hard to digest everything in a single finale episode. This means that the show may end with a massive cliffhanger and will continue the story in its next installment, i.e., The Boys Season 4.
The Boys Season 4: Will it Happen?
