SPOILER WARNING: Major spoilers for the first seven episodes of The Boys Season 3 ahead:

In the latest penultimate episode, titled Here Comes a Candle to Light You to Bed, a major plot twist was revealed that would significantly change how the finale unfolds. As Soldier Boy begins to beat Mindstorm’s face in, he tells him something we aren’t able to hear at the time. However, the shocking twist is revealed at the end of the episode. Soldier Boy calls Homelander, the man he just had an epic battle with in the previous episode, to let him know he is actually his biological father.

He tells Homelander that in the 1980s, he made a donation to Vought scientist Jonah Vogelbaum for what he assumed was a genetics project. However, one year later, Homelander was born. Since Vogelbaum is the scientist who created Homelander, Soldier Boy was able to connect the dots, leading to the realization that the most powerful Supe on the planet is actually Soldier Boys’ son.

In an exclusive interview with Variety, Jensen Ackles shared his thoughts on the major twist.

Audiences were also shocked as there was no allusion or hints toward the blood connection at any point in the show; however, after the revelation, it fits entirely into the plot of the series. Fans of The Boys can watch how this season wraps up in two days, with the season 3 finale releasing this Friday.
