The Boys season 2 is finally upon us, and we’re blessed with another round of brutal, viciously comedic episodes to heighten our sick minds. Starting shortly after the epic cliffhanger left behind from the first season, we are greeted to a premiere episode with no Butcher (Karl Urban), which leaves a lot of questions unanswered throughout the first episode. However, those uncertainties start to dissolve as the second and third episodes fully expand on where the first season left off in all fronts and takes it to an even grander scale.
New characters are incredibly welcome, with Aya Cash’s Stormfront making a big statement with her entrance. She’s going to be an acquired taste for some, as she brings out her persona from You’re The Worst, and it can come off as a tad overwhelming. As it is, Stormfront is currently the most intriguing part of the initial three episodes.
The episodes are more of what made the first season so unique, so those that weren’t huge on the last season won’t find anything surprising here as it’s just as violent and vulgar as the first, maybe even more so. The season two premiere didn’t grab a hold of me like the first season premiere. That being said, the final ten minutes grabbed my attention fully and made me fully immersed into the next episode.
The story continues for The Boys, and the fans of the first season will be incredibly pleased with where this season is headed. Season 2 so far is more of the same, including the desire to escalate things just as quickly with more violence, more crude humor, and most importantly more superheroes.
