What happened at the end of The Boys season 2?

The Boys season 2 saw us learn that Congresswoman Victoria Neuman was secretly an assassin with telekinetic powers. Episode 8 sees her kill the leader of the Church of the Collective, Alastair Adana, after he helps A-Train rejoin the seven.

One of the souped-up terrorists is revealed to be Kimiko's younger brother Kenji and the seven go after him. However Stormfront kills him along with several civilians and blames him for their deaths.

Stormfront is revealed to be part of the Church of the Collective, which is a religious group who were once "pure" and a racist organisation. Her true identity is revealed as Klara Risinger, who was born in Berlin over 100 years ago. Her plasma based abilities allow her to look much lyounger, but she was the first Compound V subject, after receiving an injection from her husband Frederick Vought. Originally from Nazi Germany, she murders an African American man, Myron Hunter, in the 70s under the moniker Liberty.

Homelander has Butcher in his sights and and plans to kill him, but Maeve forces him to let them go by threatening him with footage, which sees him abandon a plane of innocent victims in season 1.

Starlight, Maeve and Kimiko team up against Stormfront, but she flees and lands next to Becca, Butcher and Ryan, who eventually uses his laser eyes for the first tike to amputate her limbs and burn her face off. However, by the end of the season we know she's still alive as Homelander announces her incarceration in a press conference.

We expect we won't be seeing the last of her just yet.

THE BOYS season 3 is out on 3 June 2022. Seasons 1 & 2 are available to stream on Amazon Prime now.
