Amazon Prime has officially unveiled a surprising seventh episode of The Boys season three. During the episode we finally find out some interesting things about Homelander and we also get a little backstory for Butcher's family. But, one of the more interesting things was what was happening with Black Noir. The character went through one of the best arcs this season as well as had some of the best parts of this episode. The Boys also decided to add a post-credits scene to the episode that is pretty hilarious.

The post-credit scene in question features the cartoons from Black Noir's imagination. In the episode they're basically giving Noir a recap of how Vought and the Payback team betrayed Soldier Boy and gave him to the Russians. But the post-credits scene features the cartoons doing a curtain call for the episode.
The Boys gave us our first introduction to Soldier Boy who is played by frequent Kripke collaborator Jensen Ackles. Kripke has previously worked with the actor on Supernatural from seasons one through five. Now, he's brought the actor to his next series that involves some of the most hated superheroes. Ackles plays the series' Captain America-type hero which leads the series' third into a pretty interesting direction and now the series has been renewed for a fourth season.
"From our first conversation with Eric Kripke and the creative team about Season 3 of The Boys, we knew the show was continuing to get even bolder-an impressive feat considering the wild success of the Emmy-nominated second season," Vernon Sanders, head of global television, Amazon Studios, shared in a statement. "The Boys continues to push boundaries in storytelling while also being relentlessly entertaining and threading the needle on social satire that feels all too real. This stylized world of the series has incredible global reach and the viewership for opening weekend is proof of that. We are immensely proud of the cast and crew that has spawned a franchise for Prime Video, and we look forward to bringing more of The Boys to our customers."
"Speaking for the cast and crew, we're so grateful to Sony, Amazon, and most of all the fans for embracing the show and allowing us to make more," The Boys showrunner, added. "We're thrilled to continue Butcher and the Boys' fight against Homelander and the Seven, as well as comment on the insane world we're living in. Also, this is the first time in history that exploding genitalia has led to further success."
Jeff Frost, President, Sony Pictures Television and Jason Clodfelter, co-President, Sony Pictures Television continued, "The Boys producers and cast have proven year after year that there is no bar they can't jump over. We are incredibly proud of this brilliant and subversive genre-bending series. Our relationship with Prime Video is much more than a partnership, it's more like extended family. Everyone here at Sony Pictures Television is thankful to join Prime Video and Eric Kripke for another successful season."
