Butcher meets Little Nina and negotiates the Boys’ travel to Russia in exchange for assassinating one of Nina’s targets. Upon learning of the V24, Hughie asks Butcher to let him use it; Butcher refuses, but Hughie secretly takes a dose and uses it to kill one of the Russian soldiers guarding a secret laboratory. Inside, Butcher discovers a still-living Soldier Boy, who releases an energy blast that renders Kimiko powerless and wounded before escaping. During a press conference regarding Homelander’s behavior, Neuman betrays Edgar by accusing him of corruption. In return, Homelander provides Neuman a sample of Compound V which she injects into her daughter Zoe. Annie recruits Maeve and Alex to help her face Homelander. Alex later attempts to recruit A-Train after witnessing him being mistreated by Homelander and the Deep. However, Homelander confronts Annie with Alex’s corpse, having killed him after learning of the planned coup from A-Train, and threatens to kill Hughie unless Annie complies with his demands.

Maeve gives Butcher another batch of V24 before drinking and having sex with him. Homelander and Noir later find out about this and capture her. Following Edgar’s departure, Ashley is promoted to CEO of Vought.

Upon his return to America, Soldier Boy inadvertently causes an explosion, alerting the Boys. MM, Hughie, and Butcher visit the Legend, a former Vought executive, who reveals that Soldier Boy is looking for Countess. The Boys find her first and incapacitate her. When Soldier Boy arrives, Butcher suggests a partnership between them, but the former kills Countess after learning she sold him out to the Russians. Annie, who arrived at MM’s request, begs Hughie to not join Butcher and Soldier Boy as they leave, but Hughie reluctantly leaves her.
