The Boys Shock Death Avoids Season 3’s Worst Starlight Story

Fictional relationships being tested by an old flame’s surprise return is as cliched a love story as you’ll find. The Boys taking this route would’ve been overly predictable both in execution and outcome, since everyone would anticipate Hughie and Starlight reuniting eventually. Starlight being tempted away from Hughie by the classically-handsome, muscular Supersonic is also an insult to the integrity of Erin Moriarty’s The Boys character, painting her as superficial and disloyal when The Boys seasons 1 & 2 already proved Starlight is exactly the opposite.

The Boys has always sought to defy convention and subvert narrative tradition; by deliberately teasing a love triangle between Hughie, Starlight and Supersonic then gleefully stomping all over audience expectations, the Amazon TV series stays ahead of the curve once again. As an added bonus, audience expectations that Supersonic and Starlight would continue to reignite their romance across The Boys season 3 (and possibly beyond) make his demise in episode 4 all the more shocking when it happens.

Supersonic’s death allows the real problems within Starlight and Hughie’s relationship to surface. The arrival of a tall, dark, handsome figure from Starlight’s past was never the root of their romantic rot – Hughie’s insecurities were. Hughie is frustrated by how Starlight always has to save him, or open his jars – not to mention how paparazzi make him step aside at red carpet events – and it’s these feelings of inadequacy that push Hugh Campbell to inject V-24. Supersonic’s appearance merely intensified anxieties Hughie was already experiencing, but he can’t hide behind simple jealousy now his rival is a puddle of jello. Thankfully, watching Hughie overcome his relationship insecurities about Starlight being a supe sounds far more interesting for The Boys season 3 than a derivative love triangle.
