The Boys showrunner Eric Kripke gave an interview in which he confirmed that the son of Patriot and Becky Ryan is much stronger than his father. This could lead to a fight between the two when the deranged superhero gets out of hand.
Beware of spoilers for Season 2.
Kripke reiterated that Stormfront is not dead, but neither has he confirmed her return in season three. She’s just a body that can’t regenerate, and Ryan’s attack proved that his eye rays are stronger than his father’s.
Now the third season of the show is being filmed, the details of which Eric shared in a conversation. Maeve will play an important role in it:
I think Maeve understands how dangerous he is better than anyone else, and knows that ultimately he is a time bomb. So in Season 3, you will see that people are probably feeling too comfortable because they have won and the Patriot seems to be in control.
She is one of the few members of the Seven who feels rather nervous about what might happen soon. She turns out to be right.
The conversation also turned to the Butcher’s love for Ryan. Kripke noted that there is dissonance within the character. When he sees Becca hugging Ryan, he realizes that this is the son of his beloved and the last remaining part of Becky, but inside this contradicts his rage over the death of his wife.
The release date of the third season of “Boys” remains unknown.
