Yep, the end is night. But for who? It's almost time for The Boys season 3 episode 8 release date, and we wonder how the Supes and Supe-haters are making it through to The Boys season 4. That said, a big showdown at Vought seems like an obvious end for this season of one of the best Prime Video shows.

The Boys season 3 episode 8 start time, schedule

The Boys season 3's finale drops on Friday (July 8) on Amazon Prime Video (opens in new tab) at 3 a.m. ET / 12 a.m. PT.

We're all dealing with the big twist from this past week's episode. Soldier Boy has a child he doesn't know about: Homelander. Yes, Vought put Soldier Boy in a Russian ice bath because they'd already figured out how to make the better Soldier Boy, in Homie himself. 

After this past week, things became a bit more grim for our antiheroes. Not only are we dealing with the truth about V-24 — that three to five doses can be lethal — but Butcher's not exactly telling his fellow user Hughie. The two, in fact, are en-route to pick up more doses as we creep towards a big confrontation between all involved.

Not that this past episode was short on Supes clashing. Annie January (formerly Starlight) tricked Homelander into airing much of his dirty laundry in public. Including how he killed Supersonic. Always remember to make sure nobody's broadcasting you on Instagram Live.
