Storyline

At the "Believe Expo", Starlight talks with teens while being quietly directed to push an agenda, while Butcher has Hughie meet Ezekiel, the Expo host and their next lead. Maeve feels guilty for letting Flight 37 crash and visits her ex-girlfriend Elena, but leaves before explaining herself fully. Butcher takes time to talk with Rachel, his sister-in-law, over putting a tombstone to Becca. After A-Train kills Popclaw for betraying him, he finds surveillance footage of Frenchie. After Homelander exits a meeting with Ezekiel, Hughie extorts Ezekiel for information about Compound-V. Homelander rallies the crowd with an impromptu hardline speech, energizing the crowd. Starlight breaks script to honestly open up how she feels about her faith while also publicly revealing her sexual assault. She walks off, with Hughie coming by to comfort her and to explain himself about Robin's death and needing some means of coping. Butcher and Milk discover babies exposed to Compound-V to manufacture ... Written by Aaron Kyle

Trivia

The Deep is stress-eating junk food while watching news coverage about his failed rescue of the dolphin from Oceanland. Chace Crawford has joked that if he could have a superpower in real life, it would be the ability to eat as much junk food as he wants and never gain weight or deal with health problems because of it.

Goofs

Butcher steals a nurse's ID badge to gain access to the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). However, the nurse appears to work in an adult unit. NICU access is very tightly restricted; hospital employees who do not work in the NICU generally do not have access to the unit. See more »

Quotes

Mother's Milk: This kid needs to be trained up, Butcher.
Hughie Campbell: Yeah. Yeah, what he said. I-I don't know how to blackmail anyone.
Billy Butcher: Hughie, you've done a murder. Comparatively speaking, this will be a piece of cake.

Good themes but slow direction.
18 September 2019 | by cruise01See all my reviews

3.5 out of 5 stars.

The episode follows Starlight giving a speech during a religious convention. Shows some themes and highlights about relatable concepts with people paying a lot to seek answers. And the judgment people give. It is a slow direction. Homelander is upset over their own boss cause she doesnt pay enough attention to him. Hughie speaks out his feelings towards Starlight. The ending gets a little action with the bad guys getting to Butcher. And Frenchie.
