Fans think this TV character has become one of the most legendary villains after The Boys on Amazon delivered the most ‘unhinged episode in television history.’

The Boys season four began with a bang and the first three episodes shocked fans as viewers were presented with Tilda Swinton playing an Octopus that has sex with a human, a graphic sex scene that referenced The Human Centipede and a close-up bum shot

The series is most certainly back and more outrageous than ever and the fourth episode released yesterday is getting attention for being the most ‘unhinged’ yet.

The series focuses on superheroes in the real world and a main hero called Homelander (played by Antony Starr) who is completely evil and devoid of love because he was a lab experiment that was tested on for his entire life.

In season four episode four, one major storyline focuses on Homelander going back to the lab where he was raised with a Fugie the Whale ice cream cake for the lab techs – sounds cute right? Wrong.

Over the course of the episode, the superhero terrorises the lab technicians who experimented on him as a child with psychological torture. 

He forces one worker to incinerate himself in an oven and later lasers a hole into another – after forcing him to pleasure himself in front of his colleagues.

He then eviscerates the rest of the lab techs and locks the lone survivor in a chamber with their bloodied remains – seemingly to die in there.

Homelander then steps into a lift, covered in blood and guts, and smiles to himself for seeking revenge on the people who raised him.

Fans loved this gory episode and insist that this sinister performance needs to earn Antony all the awards as Homelander is now definitely one of the worst TV villains of all time.

‘This might be one of the most unhinged episodes in television history. Antony Starr is the real star of this episode. What a performance.#TheBoys,’ said Scenesoftheboys.

‘Antony Starr as Homelander is the best villain in television just give him his awards already,’ said Azirascrowley.

‘Homelander has joined the best villains of all time now #TheBoys, said Bluerayangel.

‘After this episode, I can say that…Homelander is The best villain on the planet and The best villain in the history of television…#TheBoys,’  said AbOoD0GOT.

The episode also showed a character getting a frontal lobotomy, a duet between two of the main superheroes, and a scathing commentary about abortion confidentiality,

The episode was shocking and gory but earned sincere praise from fans who were amazed that the creators were once again able to blend such serious issues with comic genius and depravity.

Fans had best enjoy the show while they can as it was announced that The Boys would be coming to a close after season five.

This means there are just around 12 new episodes left to wrap up this incredible show.
