The Boys Season 2 has presented plenty of mysteries, only some of which have been answered as we approach the Season 2 finale. What happened to Butcher’s little brother, Lenny? As we learned in Episode 7, “Butcher, Baker, Candlestickmaker,” he killed himself due–in Butcher’s estimation, at least–to their father’s abuse. On the other hand, what’s up with the Church of the Collective’s obsession with Fresca? That, we still don’t know.
At the absolute top of the list, though, is just who the heck has been popping people’s heads like bubble gum? It was bad enough when it was just Susan Raynor, who met her end back in the season premiere. But this was not the outcome The Boys had hoped for when they convinced Lamplighter (RIP) and later Vogelbaum to testify in front of Congress. What should have been a triumphant hearing in which Vought was finally exposed turned instead into an absolute bloodbath. The carnage wasn’t limited to one side or the other, and we still have no concrete idea who’s responsible. However, we have some theories.
The Church of the Collective?
One prime suspect for the head-poppings is the Church of the Collective. The Scientology-like cult that The Deep and A-Train have joined consorts with supes–obviously–so they might well have someone in their stable who’s capable of this specific power.
