After all, all of a sudden we’re seeing a side of Hughie where he’s desperate to be Starlight’s savior and seems jealous that she’s the one with all of the power.
New The Boys video! Take a look below to see everything we thought about the most-recent episode of the series. After you do that, remember to SUBSCRIBE to Matt & Jess on YouTube for some addition coverage moving into episode 6 — it’s going to be HUGE!
As you would imagine, all of this has put Annie in a really delicate position — and that is something that Erin Moriarty breaks down further in a chat with TV Guide:
“[Starlight] is really surprised by [Hughie] this season … First, she’s really pissed off and really freaked out that he’s taking Temp V. She says, rightfully so, that he has no idea what the consequences are.” But the cracks in their relationship go deeper than Hughie’s recent experimentation with V. His jealousy and overprotectiveness fly in the face of everything that made Starlight fall for him in the first place.”
Erin goes on to reference the famous bowling scene from the first season, one where Hughie encourages her to show off her powers — he was an encouraging presence in her life, and now there’s a sense of awkward competitiveness there. Some of it may come from Hughie’s own desire to destroy Homelander, but until he gets a better handle on it, we have a hard time imagining that this relationship will last.
Are you rooting for Hughie and Starlight on The Boys season 3, provided that he is able to figure his you-know-what out?
