The Boys series is one of the biggest hits on Prime Video, which had a rather shocking third season, with Jensen Ackles making his debut as Soldier Boy.
“Earth is inhabited by superheroes who are an inspiration to humanity. However, these protectors have a sinister side that most people are unaware of. If they use their powers for evil, Hughie, Billy and the rest of the team must stop them.”
The cast of the series features Karl Urban as Billy Butcher, Jack Quaid in the role of Hughie, Erin Moriarty as Starlight, Antony Starr as Captain Homeland, among other names.
With a lot of violence and blood, The Boys has a disgusting Breaking Bad reference that fans never noticed in the series (via ScreenRant🇧🇷
The cleaning scenes in the series have the same purpose.
Although the “cleaning” scenes are in different contexts in the series, they end up serving the same purpose.
The scenes present the main characters and their darkness that they have within themselves, which define them forever in the rest of the plot.
Even though Walter White has a future of murder and heinous crimes, cleaning up Emilio’s body was the first time Walter saw himself as a villain.
In The Boys, this is the Translucent scene, where Hughie ends up exploding the character, and getting soaked in the blood and guts of the member of the Seven.
Despite being horrified at first, Hughie seems to have warmed to the idea of taking on supers alongside Butcher.
White’s first murders come right from the scene of Emilio’s body, and he has become so ruthless as to strangle Krazy-8 with a bicycle lock.
However, the presence of Giancarlo Esposito as Gus Fring in Breaking Bad, and Stan Edgar in The Boys, means another reference between the series. However, the characters do not have great similarities.
The Boys is available on Prime Video🇧🇷
