What Is The Boys All About?

The Boys is unlike any other show out there based on superheroes. It’s taken from the namesake comic series that was created by Darick Robertson and Garth Ennis. Developed by Eric Kripke, the series focuses on several superheroes who abuse their powers and work for Vought which is a very influential company that curates the public perspective about them. A bunch of people then assemble to stop these superheroes, also called Supes.

The Boys started on July 26th, 2019 on Prime Video. The Boys Season 4 premiered on June 13th, 2024. Its executive producers include Kripke, Dan Trachtenberg, Seth Rogen, Paul Grellong, Rebecca Sonnenshine, Neal H. Moritz, and Pavun Shetty among others.

We see MM (Laz Alonso) planning to quit The Boys and is gearing up to leave with his wife Monique to someplace else. A-Train (Jessie T. Usher) is able to convince him to stay and continue the fight. Webweaver is brutally killed by Homelander after he is presented as a more by firecracker. Hughie (Jack Quaid) meets Neuman and tries to persuade her to stop what’s going on. However, she is not interested anymore.

The Deep and Black Noir are sent to murder Starlight and Butcher but MM and A-Train show up to save them. Homelander now knows about A-Train and fires Sage for hiding the fact that he was the leak. Sameer stabs Kimiko with the virus injection that he had made.

He manages to escape while Frenchie has to amputate her leg to save her. We realize that Annie is locked up at an unknown location and a shapeshifter has replaced her.

What To Expect From The Boys Season 4 Episode 8?

The Boys Season 4 Episode 8 is called Assassination Run and it’s directed by Eric Kripke while David Reed and Jessica Chou are the writers. It will be the final episode and it will continue from the loose ends left by the seventh episode. Homelander now knows about A-Train and he might do something to track him down.

Sage has been expelled so chances are that she might end up helping Butcher and the team to go against Homelander. The Boys Season 4 Episode 8 might also focus on the virus that showed some progress in the earlier episode when it was put on Kimiko. They might come up with something to put on Homelander but it won’t be possible.

Meanwhile, a major shocker happened when we realized that Annie had been replaced by a shapeshifter. The finale will have to give this subplot a fine conclusion. The discomfort between Homelander and Butcher’s son continues to grow and it might lead to a situation in the last episode of this season.
