    She was confirmed to be alive by the showrunners.
    She'll probably end up being locked up somewhere, with no limbs, acting as a blood bank for experiments.

    Or even worse; she could take Lamplighter's spot. We might see her regenerated but mentaly broken in a cell smeared in her own excrements.

    honestly the last Homelander scene I was half expecting to find out that he was with what was left of Stormfront and was relieved that he was just wanking on the rooftops. I don't think we've seen the last of her but I don't think she's going to be making anything close to a full recovery, physically or mentally

    As a european, I don't have any issues with that.. mostly because I see a show for what it is, entertainment instead of acting like some reddit political activist trying to make everything about politics..

    what's next? "OMG house of cards is way to political omgwtfbbq!"

    wasn't billy gonna set off the frequency world wide at the end and kill all the sups/any one with slight compound v including him self and huege the last boy?

    Or am i miss remembering something?
    Normal V just changes the brain chemistry, the modified version popped heads.

    Butcher had the head popping V refined even further and was lethal to any supe, his plan was to set off a series of 150 bombs. Which would make the stuff airborne killing anyone with a hint of V in them, then it would enter the food chain killing the people that missed the gas.

    Well, most major series and films are American products and these are the issues of the day.

    Seems reasonable and required. Do you think a writer in Burbank is going to write a series about nothing but the plot?

    Nothing exists in a vacuum. Context is everything.

    Dredd was awesome, this is one of those I preach a little about to people, an under appreciated gem.

    Karl Urban just looks like he is having a great time playing the role of Billy Butcher. It comes through in his performance, which is exceptional. As someone who says cunt a lot, he is like my spirit animal in a way. Him and Anthony Starr pretty much steal every scene they are in for me.

    Not quite sure why being a European is relevant, I am too, and I don't really see the problem. This show was always political in nature, it doesn't just satire popular culture and corporate culture, but also political culture (which is often joined heavily with the other two). People have been making commentary on political/cultural tribalism for as long as there has been art. It has always been with us, I don't see the issue with exploring it, especially when new technology comes into play, the same old problem in a different setting. Also not sure why Europeans should be especially bothered by it.

    Bit on the fringe here, but I'm about The Deep. I would dig more of this washed up (lmao I kill myself) and out of touch dude. He's very charismatic despite being a piece of shit.

  11. #551
    yeah I hate what The Deep did but he's an interesting character and it'll be interesting to see what direction he goes in next season, as well as how it effects his friendship with A-Train... also going to be interesting to see what happens with Train too, it's likely Homelander would be pissed if he knew who outed his girlfriend

    Which is interesting - considering in the comics I think he is one of the nicer guys and didn't do to Annie what he did in the series.

    Been watching a lot of youtube videos recent on the backstories, both in the series and in the comics. Next time I get the chance, gonna binge both seasons again

    Wait did you think a show about evil capitalist super hero’s with the lead who is named homelander who wears an American flag wouldn’t be political?

    In the comic the deep is pretty much a Visual gag who does nothing. For example at the end he gets put in a klan hood/condom esc costume Because he can’t/won’t take off the diving helm.

    Its not an action series. Its a political satire. Always has been. Hell the politics within The Boys is more accurate than House of Cards.

    Nah not really how that works, I heard them use that excuse but I just think they chickened out. They'll bring her back either regenerated or augmented. Disturbing how popular she is. Not surprising but disturbing.

    Why does only one of them in the picture have a cone on his head?

    No way, dude. Have to keep that character and actor around. No producer in their right mind would throw that away.
