The Boys season 3, episode 6 recap

Now that Homelander is aware that Soldier Boy is back, he decides that he must find and kill him. Meanwhile, Soldier Boy tells Billy that if he helps him track down his former team, he will kill Homelander. As The Female, aka Kimiko, texts Frenchie, she gets attacked. A-Train wants charges against Blue Hawk for his violent attack and paralyzing his brother, but Ashley calls him out for his hypocritical behaviour.

As Homelander struggles with recent events, Soldier Boy tells Hughie that he didn’t mean to kill anyone; Instead, he is simply blacked out. Billy finds an address for the TNT Twins, so Hughie does more Compound V. Starlight and Neuman have a chat, and Neuman reveals that she knows Hughie knows the truth about her. But rather than kill Hughie, Neuman wants her and Starlight to team up while making their socials increase. Neuman claims that it is for her daughter. Starlight, however, responds with “f**k you” and to either “pop her head” or “get the hell out.”

As Nina holds Frenchie hostage, she threatens the life of The Female. And just as it appears that The Female may die, she breaks free and causes a blood-filled rampage. It nearly results in her death, but when her powers return, she is able to violently stab the thug who had tried to kill her. In the aftermath, Frenchie and The Female learn that Nina has gone.

After Marvin reveals that Soldier Boy is responsible for his grandfather’s death, he and Starlight go to an orgy party for heroes. Starlight fears that Soldier Boy will slaughter everyone there, unaware that Hughie is also at the party. After Marvine gets trenched in superhero c*m, Starlight walks in on The Deep having sex with an octopus. She learns from The Deep that it was Homelander’s idea to attend the orgy. And when Hughie bumps in A-Train, he uses his newfound powers to punch him.

The ending

When danger levels rise, Hughie teleports Starlight away. As a result, they both argue, and Hughie finally admits that it bothers him that Starlight is more powerful than him. Marvin comes face-to-face with Soldier Boy. But when he throws a smoke grenade, it does nothing. And ultimately, Billy stops Marvin from going any further.

Soldier Boy tracks down the TNT Twins. When he originally says he will let them go if he reveals who was to blame, the loud music makes him explode. With the TNT Twins and several others dead, Hughie tries to stop Starlight from returning to the ruins. The Deep flees with his octopus while A-Train takes revenge on Blue Hawk and kills him by running him through the streets.

Homelander comes and views the rummage, and after Soldier Boy mocks him as being a “cheap knock-off,” Homelander, Soldier Boy, and Billy fight. Even Hughie joins in. But when it comes down to it, Soldier Boy is unable to kill Homelander. And therefore, Homelander flies off. In the closing moments of the sixth episode of The Boys season three, Starlight records a public message going against Homelander. She reveals that Soldier Boy is to blame for the explosion and that something terrible has happened to Queen Maeve. And she ends the message by saying that she isn’t Starlight, she is Annie January, and she f**king quits.
