With his time running out, Butcher turns to an old CIA friend, Joe Kessler. He needs help to take Ryan away from Homelander and to finally end the leader of the Seven. Butcher is also struggling, seeing hallucinations of his dead wife, Becca.

Internal Conflicts

Butcher breaks a deal with Neuman and spends some time with his son. However, he can’t go through with the plan to kidnap Ryan and use him against Homelander.

Homelander’s Schemes

Homelander is cleared of murder charges from the end of Season 3. He’s tired of being surrounded by yes-men and plots with Neuman to assassinate president-elect Robert Singer. With the help of Sister Sage, a new member of The Seven, he plots a plan to take Starlight’s campaign and is successful.

The Boys’ Struggles

The Boys are being torn apart:

  • Annie renounces the Starlight name to do good with her own charity.
  • Hughie is dealing with his father’s stroke.
  • Kimiko grapples with her past again.

What is the plot of The Boys Season 4?

Season 4 seems to be about Billy Butcher trying to build a virus strong enough to kill Homelander. As seen in Gen V, there’s a virus developed at Godolkin University which is strong enough to kill Supes. At the end Gen V, the scientist responsible for the virus hands it over to Victoria Newman who then kills the scientist.

As seen in Episode 5 of The Boys Season 4, Neuman hands the virus to her husband Sameer who ends up wasting the virus. Now Billy Butcher has captured Sameer who’s presumed dead by the others. Billy has now left Sameer no choice but to redevelop the virus to kill Homelander.
