The Boys Season 4 Episode 2 Life Among the Septics 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: Jessica Chou

Episode directed by: Karen Gaviola

Synopsis: The Boys follow Sage to the conspiracy theory convention, TruthCon, to find out why she’s meeting with a bombastic Supe named Firecracker who has a vendetta against Starlight. Meanwhile, Ryan gets his first public (but staged) save, stopping some bank robbers — but it goes tragically off script when Homelander shows up to take the spotlight from his son.

Hughie is furious when he learns that his mother has power-of-attorney over his father, awakening painful memories of the day she abandoned him. Annie reluctantly steps back into the role of Starlight to give hope to her supporters in the wake of Homelander’s acquittal.

And after Butcher finally reveals his terminal prognosis to The Boys, Mother’s Milk fires him from the team for keeping it secret for so long, fed up with Butcher’s lies.
