The Boys Season 4 Episode 1 Department of Dirty Tricks Synopsis

Head Writer and Developed by - Eric Kripke

Based on the comic series from Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson

Executive Producers Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg.

Episode written by: David Reed

Episode directed by: Philip Sgriccia

Synopsis: It’s Election Night and President-Elect Bob Singer and VP Victoria Neuman are throwing a party to celebrate their victory! But when The Boys crash the party to assassinate Neuman, the mission goes horribly wrong.

Now the clock is ticking to finish the job before the election is certified on January 6th, when Neuman will be one head-pop away from the Presidency. Meanwhile, Butcher’s health has badly deteriorated from his Temp V use in Season 3, and he’s running out of time in his quest to save Ryan, who’s fallen further under Homelander’s malign influence. Annie, having officially left The Seven, is trying to distance herself from the role of “Starlight” and just be Annie January — but leaving the supersuit behind is proving harder than she thought.

After a family crisis, Hughie gets a visit from the last person he ever expected to see again. And when Homelander finds a gray hair, he’s confronted with his own mortality, and worries about the world he’s going to leave behind for Ryan. So, he recruits Sage, a superhero and the world's smartest person, and with her help, Homelander becomes more dangerous than ever.
