The Boys Season 2 Episode 7 Recap
In the previous episode of Amazon’s The Boys, Stormfront revealed to Homelander that Vought’s true mission was white supremacy, and the Boys retrieved Lamplighter to help take down Vought. In The Boys Season 2 Episode 7, Victoria Neuman met with Lamplighter to testify before Congress, and Homelander brought Stormfront to meet Ryan.
“Do It in Front of My Statue”
Mallory arranged for Neuman to meet with Lamplighter. After she left, Butcher left Hughie to watch Lamplighter. Hughie sat with Lamplighter while he watched Supe-themed porn. When Hughie convinced him to turn it off, they saw on the news that Annie had been captured while meeting her mother. Hughie convinced Lamplighter to help him save Annie from Vought Tower.
Lamplighter led the way through Vought Tower. Hughie found himself in the conference room. Lamplighter was upset that they removed his statue. He’d wanted to kill himself in front of it. He self-immolated.
Hughie took Lamplighter’s hand for access throughout Vought Tower. He found Annie’s mother. The fire alarms going off gave Annie enough power to free herself. She found them in the hallway.
Mallory and M.M. had gone to see Jonah Vogelbaum to convince him to reveal what he knew about Vought. He declined because of what could happen to his family. Mallory told M.M. that he should run away with his family. He called Butcher, who Judy had called away. She had lied to Butcher that his father, Sam, died to get him to see him. Butcher visited Vogelbaum and convinced him to testify to Congress about what he knew. During the hearing, just as Vogelbaum was about to begin his testimony, the heads of people in the room, including Vogelbaum’s, were exploding.
Kimiko was important evidence against Vought, so Mallory tasked Frenchie with protecting her. As they watched over Neuman, Kimiko started teaching him her sign language.
Elena told Maeve that she would be staying at her sister’s. She couldn’t stop thinking about the people who Maeve let die on the plane. Maeve violently flipped a table when she couldn’t convince Elena to change her mind. Ashley found Maeve in bed with a man, flying in the face of the “lesbian” narrative that Vought was trying to push.
When Annie had escaped, Black Noir found her. Maeve helped Annie and fed Black Noir an Almond Joy since he had a tree nut allergy.
Stormfront and Homelander arrived at Becca’s house unannounced. Homelander apologized to Ryan and introduced Stormfront as his girlfriend. Ryan showed them the Lego movies that he made about Becca’s favorite movies, and Homelander wanted to show Ryan his own movies. While Becca was working on dinner, Homelander and Stormfront flew Ryan over the Vought compound to show that his home wasn’t real. Ryan left with Homelander.
At a party for Alastair, A-Train got The Deep a fish as a gift for helping him. Alastair asked them about Eagle the Archer, who had helped The Deep. However, Alastair had told them that Eagle had been spreading lies and that he was gone from the Church of the Collective.
