Okay folks, are your eyes glowing or is it just the The Boys season 3 episode 5 release date? Yes, Temp-V in hand, we're here to answer the question of "how Homelander will bring dread to our Fridays?" And we're fine with that drama, especially when one of the very best Prime Video shows keeps finding ways to shock us each and every week. Of course, beware spoilers for episode 4!

The Boys season 3 episode 5 start time, schedule

The Boys season 3 episode 5 debuted today (Friday, June 17) on Amazon Prime Video at 3 a.m. ET.

But, of course, the big question after last week's episode is "what the heck is Soldier Boy going to do?" Yes, just like Captain America, the Supe from the past has been released from his confines and basically "unfrozen" into modern reality. He's likely out for revenge for whomever put him there.

Elsewhere, Homelander reminded us that he is the villain we've known he is by killing off Supersonic. If that doesn't confirm that he's willing to do the same to Hughie, in order to keep Starlight in line, we're not sure what else could.

In the first four episodes of The Boys season 3 (the one show you should have binge-watched on Amazon Prime Video), we've remembered why A-Train isn't trustworthy, seen how much of a tool The Deep has become and felt really bad for Kimiko as she was sent undercover to a very bad man's house.

After having watched the whole of The Boys season 3, we're more than confident with our decision to make it the new show to watch in June. Also, check out our spoiler-free The Boys season 3 review to see what I thought about the show's return.

How to watch The Boys season 3 episode 5 anywhere on Earth

While Amazon Prime Video is available in many countries around the world, it's not everywhere. If you are in a region without access to Prime Video, you don't have to miss The Boys. Watching along with the rest of the internet can be pretty easy. With the right VPN (virtual private network), you can stream the show from wherever you go.

We've evaluated many options, and the best VPN is ExpressVPN. It meets the VPN needs of the vast majority of users, offering outstanding compatibility with most devices and impressive connection speeds. It's also affordable at $12.95 per month. (Signing up for longer periods of six months or a year reduces the cost even more.)


Our favorite VPN service, ExpressVPN, really shines thanks to its safety, speed and simplicity-to-use. It's also compatible with loads of devices - from iOS and Android to Roku, Apple TV and PlayStations. You'll even get an extra 3 months free if you sign up for a year, or there's a 30-day money-back guarantee if you just want to give it a try.

Using a VPN is incredibly simple.

1. Install the VPN of your choice. As we've said, ExpressVPN is our favorite.

2. Choose the location you wish to connect to in the VPN app. For instance if you're in the U.S. and want to view a U.K. service, you'd select U.K. from the list.

3. Sit back and enjoy the action. Head to Amazon Prime Video or other streaimng services and tune in.
