Amazon has been releasing these on Thursdays around 8 pm EST and I've been watching it right then.

This season has been pretty amazing so far and can't wait to see what the last 3 episodes have in store. Each episode the crazy shit just goes up. I think it goes without saying the guy playing homelander is one talented mofo and almost every single scene with him, you watch with extreme uneasiness.

My only hope that I donít see them doing, sadly, is giving Black Noir something interesting and unexpected to do.

I saw the scene in the preview and knew pretty quickly it was a fake out. The show has a lot of balls. But not balls THAT big.

Yeah. You knew it was when it was happening........but there was that hint of a chance it wasnít because this show is ate up.

Stormfront is even more diabolical than Homelander. Sheís Fín wicked

Be interesting to see if they follow the comic book when it comes to Black Noirs real identity.  If they do follow it, it'll be good......however I do think there is more potential if the reveal is someone different, as the show and the comic book are quite different (the show is much better to be honest!).

Yea I donít expect them to do the comics route for Black Noir. I just want them to do something interesting. Right now heís just a soldier for Vought that occasionally provides some quirky comic relief. I was half expecting him to switch sides last episode after clearly being hurt that Vought created his powers. But no. Just a soldier who does what heís told.

I like that about him. You know exactly what he is; whereas others like Homelander are scary because of their unpredictability, Black Noir is terrifying exactly because what you see is what you get: a ruthless, cold blooded killer who does exactly as he's told. Homelander struggles with human emotions and ego, but Black Noir has no ego or emotions to get in his way. Or the ability to feel pain, apparently. I kind of hope they keep him that way, because in season 1 he was almost comic relief to me because he had no lines and was barely there. It's weird having someone so deadly be kind of funny. This show is really good at that in general.

But he does have emotions. Remember when the news about Compound V broke and he broke down and was crying? Unless that too was some weird comic relief, I was hoping it would lead to SOME development. As cool as he is....and he obviously is...a cold blooded killer with no personality at all just isn't going to be super interesting in the long run. So I'm hoping his response to compound V was a hint of something more to come. But maybe not.

Also I wonder where they're going to take The Deep/Tom Cruise. The whole scientology thing is interesting, but I'm not sure what it'll lead to.

Huh. I actually totally missed the part with him crying. Which episode is that?

I guess I'm not expecting him to be interesting - but the fact that he's the only one who acts that way, ironically, makes him kind of interesting to me  :lol

Maybe episode 3? Whichever one where the news about compound V broke. If you YouTube black noir crying youíll see it.

Which is why his next thing seemed lame. He immediately went after Butcher. Why? No reason other than Vought telling him. Seemed like a set up with no payoff.

Another excellent episode, this dynamic between Homelander and Stormfront is something else.

Loved that episode.

Frenchie's backstory, Homelander's terrifying insanity, Stormfront's revelation at the end, and the brutal violence throughout the whole episode was just awesome. Lamplighter is kind of a lame supe but I liked him a lot in this. Watching all the people escaping the facility was terrifying - I imagine things are gonna get crazy for the rest of this season with unstable supes running free. Cindy (the woman with the shaved head) hopefully plays a big part because I love her powers.

The sound design in this show is excellent, btw. When someone explodes and the blood hits the wall, it makes me wince. And when Homelander made that guy's head pop... it's so brutal omg  :lol

LOL yes the sound design in insane, I was eating ice cream during that opening scene and was watching with headphones and it made me cringe.

Also got a very X-men 2 vibe from that episode. The movie is probably my favorite of the X-men movies so yeah that episode kicked all kinds of ass. Probably my favorite one so far.

That's exactly what I was thinking. He even had Pyro's obsessive flicking of the lighter. As a huge X2 fan I thought that was pretty cool, to be honest.

Stormfront's revelation at the end

About that. I think we all understood that she was going to be the original 'supe' so that revelation wasn't all that shocking. What was shocking was how she had those pictures just laying there on the top of some stuff in an unlocked chest where anyone could just open it and then be in the know. Pretty lame IMO. At least walk over to the cliched 'safe in the wall behind a picture' and remove them from there. But just haphazardly available to anyone in an unlocked chest was lazy or poor writing IMO.

Tried starting this out a little while back, and when it got to Deep raping the new girl, I had to give it a hard "no thanks."  Recently thought maybe I'd give it another shot, to see if maybe that sort of thing was a setup to graphically show the corruption and flawed nature of the superhero world, and would move on.  But a few scenes past that, the series just wants to try to double down on the seedy side of things every few scenes, so gave it a "no thanks" again.  What I understand as the premise of it seems like a cool idea.  But just not interested in how they have chosen to portray it.

Very intense setup for a season finale. Had some of the funniest moments I thought in the entire series. The timing of some of the gags makes them even more hilarious. 
I wonder if the finale will have major showdowns, I have to say as menacing and psychotic Homelander is, he's been largely neutered these past few episodes.

They've toned it down massively from the comicbook,  which I'm glad about.

Holy shit that ending was insane. The episode was a bit sleepier than I expected but they just blew the roof off the joint with that final scene. Did Ashley get killed in that? I know the A Train knockoff guy got got, too. What an insane scene!!

Don't know who all got popped, it cut at a lot of places. Apart from the obvious first couple of ones, will have to watch that scene again.

Ending scene was nuts for sure!! I'm just trying to figure out who is behind the head exploding assassinations? I've never read the comic but my speculation is that it's the head of that crazy cult. Just seems like he's hiding something for sure. I had thought it was maybe Stormfront but her behavior in that scene didn't seem like she was doing it....unless she was just putting on a show which is possible.

I thought Homelander and Stormfront turning his son against his mom then taking him from her was brutal also.

My guess is that its the Cindy girl from the previous episode. She showed that kind of power and was seen leaving the facility.

That's what I was thinking but who made Raynor's head explode earlier this season when she was meeting with The Boys, if Cindy was locked up in the facility?

Exactly. Sheís capable of it for sure but Raynor meeting the same fate while she was in prison is whatís odd.

I don't think they figured out exactly who killed her, just made the connection that Vought was responsible. I'll double check when I rewatch the series before the finale though.

My moneys on Giancarlo being a secret supe? 

I dunno. But that was nuts. Also the episode finally ruled out the comic version of Black Noir.
