“There was a draft of the script the place he was lifeless.”
As if The Boys‘ season three finale did not make our jaws drop to the ground sufficient, showrunner Eric Kripke‘s revelation to E! Information that the Amazon Prime Video collection was going to kill off a serious character completely unhinged our bone from our face. (Sure, we’re contemplating authorized motion.) Warning: Main spoilers forward! Proceed with extra warning than a cow inside 50-feet of Homelander.
That character? Jensen Ackles‘ Soldier Boy, who finally ended the episode being put again on ice (a.ok.a. in an induced coma à la Captain America).
So what impressed the last-minute swap? “It was fan service!” the manager producer joked as a nod to Ackles’ devoted followers from his 15-season run on The CW’s Supernatural, which Kripke created.
In actuality, there have been a number of the reason why Soldier Boy—who was revealed to be Homelander’s biological father in the July 1 episode, leading to a dramatic showdown between the 2 supes within the finale—finally survived.
