Season 3 of The Boys is one of maturation, forward progression, and (comparable) restraint. The show, which begins its final season with an incredible shrinking coke sniffer emerging from its lover’s penis, ends on its most introspective and heartfelt arcs yet. Showrunner Eric Kripke structures Season 3 as a response to anyone who falsely claims The Boys is all violence, with no substance, simply by tackling storylines that were built from the ground up. This latest has been a season of consequences, of choosing to jump off cliffs and defeat internal demons before focusing on the monsters of reality – frankly, the best The Boys has been so far.

This isn’t to discredit Kripke’s special effects department and fight the choreographers because The Boys still kick an appotable amount of criminal asses. Season 3 also remains excessively gratuitous and creative in its body mutilations, from Sevens-themed dildo tools to a face-chewing supe hamster. Kimiko (Karen Fukuhara), Soldier Boy (Jensen Ackles), Homelander, and Butcher all get standout action sequences as seemingly indestructible titans collide. The Boys never outright rid themselves of the extreme violence fans have come to expect from Butcher’s dispatch of super-powered scumbags and always do so with a new hearse flavor (and footloose inspirations).
