You may think you’re ready … but you’re not

The present day, Boys series creator Eric Kripke made an exciting announcement on Twitter about season 3, as he shared his reaction to seeing the Herogasm episode of the show.

The tweet includes the original cover of the first issue of Herogasm. That strongly implies that he is referring specifically to Boys upcoming season 3, episode 6 of the same name. At the beginning of this year, Kripke tweeted a cover photo of the title page of the episode script with the name of the episode, the number and its author, Jessica Chou. In the equally blasphemous tweet, he announced “CHALLENGE MET, MOTHER * CKERS” to all those who challenged him to do the episode but didn’t think he would, could, or should.

The tweet reads “Um. So. I just looked at the dailies that are, by a mile, the craziest dailies I’ve ever seen in my career. Or maybe someone’s career. #YouAreNotFuckingReady” followed by a series of hashtags and accounts tagged twitter posts that are affiliated with the dark superhero drama.

So what’s so special about it? Herogasm? Why is there so much controversy, excitement, and surprise behind these ads? Well, the “-gasm” part of that title is not a metaphor. Herogasm is a 6-number split from Boys graphic novels that, according to the canon, take place between numbers 30 and 31 of the main story. The spin-off’s plot centers around the protagonists who infiltrate an annual “party” hosted by Vought for their favorite and highest-performing Supes. Spoiler alert though: the party is an over-the-top orgy filled with illicit drugs and depraved sex acts, with the unique talents of superheroes pushing the limits of debauchery.

It will be interesting to see where Kripke and company decide to take this particular episode. Anyone familiar with the show is aware of its dark and controversial history, graphic violence, and sexual situations. But how much is too much? How far will the limits push? And will the episode be accepted with as much enthusiasm as the original graphic novels were in its day? We won’t know until Season 3 premieres on Prime Video later this year. If you want to catch up early, you can binge on Seasons 1 and 2 of Boys on Prime Video right now for free with an Amazon Prime subscription. You can check out Kripke’s tweet below.
