What happened to Lamplighter?
We are introduced to the boys by Hughie, who discovers that they were fighting the Supes long before his girlfriend was killed by an A-Train in the middle of the V Complex. We discover Billy Butcher’s story little by little. And in this episode 6 of Season 2 we learn more about Frenchie. One of the things that was alluded to before was his hatred for the lamp lighter. And her guilt for not being able to save the children that the Supe had mercilessly killed. In this episode they come face to face and old transgressions are discussed.
Five years ago, Colonel, Butcher, MM and Frenchie were the only ones trying to bring down Vought. They found incriminating evidence against Lamplighter, who was a member of the Seven at the time. And blackmailed him to pass on information about Vought. Even though he accepted the deal, the colonel did not trust him and asked Frenchie to keep an eye on him.
He followed Lamplighter to a party but was distracted by Cheri who told him that their friend had OD’d and was dying. By the time Frenchie came back. Lamplighter had left the party and that’s when the trouble started. Lamplighter ended up at Mallory’s house where he planned to kill her in her sleep so he wouldn’t have to blackmail her anymore. But he didn’t know his grandchildren were there that night and he burned them. By the time he realized what he had done, it was already too late. Frenchie blames himself for the death of the children. Because if he hadn’t gone to see his friend, he could have stopped Lamplighter.
What does Vought want?
After throwing bread crumbs and making several allusions to the central mystery. The Boys finally reveals Vought’s true purpose. And if you guessed world domination, then you’re right. Stormfront’s entry and his greater involvement in the company, compared to other superheroes who are just assets to them. Means that she’s more than just an ordinary superhero.
We got a glimpse of her ruthlessness and racism when she called Kenji a yellow bastard. Then, as Liberty, killed Valerie’s brother because he was black. The fact that she didn’t particularly like A-Train also seems understandable in the context given to us when she explains her life story to Homelander.
It turns out that Stormfront is much older than we had imagined. And that he has a much deeper relationship with Vought. She was born in 1919 in Berlin, where she met Frederick Vought. Vought had developed compound V and tested it successfully for the first time. As Stan Edgar had already told Homelander, Vought had been a Nazi. Until 1944, he felt the winds change and found himself with the Allies. Stormfront was not only his first successful subject, but also his wife. The goal of their research and practical application of Compound V was to advance Hitler’s ideologies.
They tested the drug on infants, and it worked very well. But for their plans to succeed, they also need it to work on adults. They are trying to stabilize the compound, which is why they are testing it at the Sage Grove center. Once they succeed, they plan to inject it into every person of their superior race. So that they will literally become superior to all other races. And that they can then rule over them like gods. On the whole, they want to dominate the world. Or at least that’s what Stormfront told Homelander. While consoling him with the fact that he is supposed to be their headliner for this program. He’s supposed to be their leader.
