The Boys season 2, episode 4 review: “Uncomfortable, captivating viewing”

Can there be too much of a good thing? The Boys season 2 has picked up where the first season left off, delivering its own warped take on a world filled with corporate-managed superheroes. But one of them, Homelander, still stands head and shoulders above the rest. So much so that, in this fourth episode, it might be time to ponder whether a large helping of the all-knowing Homelander can actually be a detriment to the show.

Homelander, inevitably, dominates the episode from the first minute until the last. It makes for uncomfortable, captivating viewing as The Boys even tops last week’s gills duet with a scene that’s sure to make your skin crawl and mouth “What the fuck?” in ways that other shows can’t quite grasp. The Boys, it’s become abundantly clear in the second season, revels in retch-inducing moments – but only in service to the story rather than shock value.
