    Had fallen behind on this but been getting back into it and finished s2 over the last week and seen first 2 of s3, really enjoying it again.
    Butcher is the man.

    Not sure what to make of season 3 so far, but I can't wait for the finale. Anthony Starr and Karl Urban are incredible. Homelander and Butcher are both insane but so well acted.

    One thing I'll say though is I don't see how they get another season or two out of this unless Homelander dies or loses his powers in the finale. As much as I love the character, another season (or more) of him just being this unstoppable *, going around threatening the other supes and killing innocents - as entertaining as it's been - will get quite stale.

    Actually similar to Stranger Things in that way. Just hoping they don't stretch it out a season too long.

    Wouldn't totally shock me if Soldier Boy kills Homelander in the finale, and is the big bad for next season. Lures him in with a false sense of hope, Homelander shows a bit of humanity for the first time in his life, and wam, dead.

    Then there's the dilemma with Temp V and what it's doing to Butcher/Hughie.

    See the thing is, even though I said another season of Homelander just being Homelander could get boring...I would worry about the show if Anthony Starr isn't in it. He just steals every scene he's in. Think I'd like to see him lose his powers and how he deals with it. Could be quite interesting.

    I could see what you said happening, albeit with Solider Boy taking away his powers as opposed to killing him. Maybe Stan Edgar has been behind it all to get Homelander out of the picture. No chance he's just finished on the show.

    I think they are setting it up for butcher to go out on his shield he will die to save hughy already foreshadowed on his guilt over his brother after he left him to his abusive father he will redeem himself it’s setting up noir and a train to redeem themselves aswell

    Noir needs a happy ending. Been rooting for the * from day one. Ok that’s a lie but I definitely thought he had a bigger role to play than the background * he’s had since the start.

    Noir yes. A Train is a * though always has been.

    Dunno about that he looked gutted to be saved as in he knows he’s a piece of * and can’t cope with the guilt

    He killed Hughies burd, tried to exploit his colour for fame and generally is a selfish *. There is a line for redemption and he crossed it ages ago. He might actually feel bad now that a family member is * up but he never gave a * before then.

    Plus did he not just get Supersonic killed by telling Homelander about his and Starlight's plan?

    Hope they don't attempt to redeem A-Train. He's a *.

    So he did. Forgot about that. Morally bankrupt. I would rather see the likes of him dead than those with the courage of their convictions.

    Really enjoying this season. The political satire is really well done too.

    I agree they need to mix it up a bit for next season. I think Homelander losing his power is the obvious thing that should happen, then you can have a whole season about people trying to get his power back or something.

    Maybe even a ‘campaign’ to get his power back or some genuine threat they need him for.

    Minor complaint is I think they missed a beat when Homelander was almost killed by Soldier Boy, Butcher and Hughie. I feel that should’ve been a far bigger deal for him.

    I know they’re showing him as rattled but the whole nature of his character, I was expecting a massive breakdown scene. Maybe even goes somewhere to just murder people or something. Like he’s acting more like he’s found out there’s a weapon that can kill him rather than reacting like Hughie of all people had him pinned down moments from death.

    Nah not A-Train.

    Putting that racists heart in him * him, he will maybe go for Homelander but he won’t redeem himself.

    Noir might, I don’t know where they are going with him. It’s obviously well away from the comics anyway.

    It’s quite easy for him to get his power back compound v as wee seen with kimiko….. or will they play the route that because he was born with powers that won’t happen

    Political satire pretty much wrote this season. It was an open goal really. Trump is a satire commentators dream.

    You said you’ve seen “spoiler pictures”.
