In the first episode?

Spoiler:
I'm pretty sure that was just her reaction to giving in to Deep's demand.

Wasn't she like crazy drunk at the time?

It also gave her amazing Wolverine-like tracking powers to find Hughie, so maybe you're onto something though.

Finished the show up a few days ago and loved it. Great ending and great setup for Season 2.

I also noticed the fly - I haven't read any spoilers, I just figured it was an Ant-Man analogue who'd come in later.

I laughed out loud when Black Noir started playing the piano.

Bring on Season 2!

That is exactly what I thought as well... actually thought it was somewhat telegraphed as a plot line as well.

Before the Supe terrorists starting appearing, wouldn't anyone think it was weird that all of the 'naturally' created Supes all were in the USA ? no European , Asian or African natural Supes

Plus they were all signed to Vought (unless they were discarded). Like nobody thought it was suspicious that every single superhero contracted with them? And nobody that signed NDAs went off the grid (like the father) and revealed the secret? Even if it was just a rumor being supressed you'd figure it wouldn't come as a surprise to the CIA.

They clearly show Vaught using their Supers to eliminate their detractors. Seems likely they were doing this large scale, especially with someone like Homelander on their side. The government was aware, but powerless to do anything about it.

Maybe I’m crazy, but was Stillwell supposed to be Homelander’s birth mother? She kept calling him “my boy,” even while having sex, and he was so jealous of her baby, like he resented that she kept that baby but gave him up to be raised in a lab.

I think Homelander had kind of an Oedipal Complex. I don't think Stillwell was his actual mother, but since he grew up without one and since she was an authority figure for him he expressed those kinds of feelings toward her. Stillwell calling him "my boy" while having sex was role-play. She did it because she knew it was what he wanted.

I just finished the last couple episodes up last night. I really love this show. It took me a couple episodes to get into it but once the series got rolling it really turned great fast. Itís without a doubt my favorite ďstreaming showĒ that Iíve watched so far.

I also noticed the fly buzzing around and figure itís some sort of Ant-man type character being set up (I havenít read any spoilers so thatís just a guess).

Also, without reading any spoilers, Iím waiting for Lamplighter to show back up after finding out what he did to the CIA ladyís family.

I'm surprised Dan Trachtenberg isn't in more demand, he only has like three notable director credits (10 Cloverfield Lane, Playtest (Black Mirror) and The Boys pilot) but they've all been rock solid.
