(Warning: This post contains spoilers for Episode 205 of “The Boys,” titled “We Gotta Go Now.”)Stormfront (Aya Cash) and Homelander (Antony Starr) got together in the Vought Tower in a very not-safe-for-work way at the end of Friday’s episode of “The Boys” Season 2. And if you didn’t see the supes’ very aggressive, laserific coppulation coming, showrunner Eric Kripke says their hookup was inevitable, as “at some point, right-wing, conservative politics and right-wing, alt-right nationalism have to eventually make sweet, sweet love.”And that’s of course a problem, because, as Kripke puts it, “now they’re a team and that’s really dangerous.”“Homelander, for as powerful as he is, is really only interested in himself and his ego,” “The Boys” showrunner told TheWrap. “Stormfront, which you’ll learn in the next episode, has a very, very clear and dangerous agenda. And she wants him to help her with that agenda. And that’s really scary.”Also Read: 'The Boys' Boss Breaks Down That Liberty Mystery, Homelander's Homelander IssuesYes, that plan has to do with Shawn Ashmore’s Lamplighter and those Sage Grove emails Starlight (Erin Moriarty) discovered on Stormfront’s computer this week while searching for clues about her previous identity, Liberty. And Kripke says the boys will be getting to the bottom of that mystery next week, when they go to “investigate” Sage Grove.As for how the making of the actual Stormfront-Homelander sex scene, which began with a request from Stormfront that Homelander “laser my f—ing t–s” and ended with them having intercourse in the air, Kripke says some of that was thought up by his talented writers and the rest had to be worked out logistically once they got to set.“The first part of the walking towards each other, huge credit to Ellie Monahan, the episode’s writer, who is so nice and sweet and when you hang out with her you’re like, she’s the nicest person,” he said. “And then she just turned in a script that had ‘laser my f—ing t–s on it.’ And this is like, ‘You’re amazing! You’re layers upon layers, Ellie!’ And so she came up with that and the throwing him. And once the actual kind of montage began, we came up with all kinds of crazy s–t in the writers’ room.”Also Read: 'The Boys' Showrunner on Weekly-Release Backlash: 'It's Not Fun to See Bad Reviews on a Thing People Actually Love'“But at the end of the day it’s really complicated because you have all the complexities of filming a real love scenes, which is bringing the actors into it and we want to hear their perspective and what makes them comfortable,” Kripke continued. “And then you have the stunt guys being like, and here’s where we can pull them up on wires. So it’s a crazy complicated process and you can’t really figure that out in the writers’ room. We all hung out on the stage together and walked through the set and figured out what we were comfortable with and what the actors were comfortable with.”A new episode of “The Boys” Season 2 launches next Friday on Amazon Prime Video.Read original story ‘The Boys’ Showrunner Breaks Down That Laserific Supe Sex Scene and Coming Consequences At TheWrap
(Warning: This post contains spoilers for “The Boys” Season 2 Episodes 1-3.)By the end of Episode 3 of “The Boys” Season 2, viewers learn that series newcomer Aya Cash’s character, Stormfront, “is a racist piece of garbage.”That’s how showrunner Eric Kripke described the newest member of the Supes of the Seven, who kills Kimiko’s (Karen Fukuhara) brother, Kenji, — a man who has been given Compound V and turned into a “super terrorist” — and takes quite a lot of pleasure in slaughtering the “f—ing yellow bastard.”Up until that fight, the audience is led to believe Stormfront is a social-media savvy superhero trying to bring some progressive change to Vought.Also Read: 'The Boys': Antony Starr on Homelander and Becca's 'Super Twisted' Parenting Arrangement“We sort of intentionally misdirected that in the beginning [of Season 2] for the frankly disturbing reason that, if you look at a lot of nationalism and white supremacy these days, it’s online,” Kripke told TheWrap, referring to keeping the secret of Stormfront’s dark side throughout the first three episodes of Season 2, which all launched on Amazon Prime Video Friday.“It couches itself in very savvy, friendly terms to attract young people. And we wanted to reflect that, because hate doesn’t come at you with a big neon sign that says, ‘Hey, we’re hate.’ They come at you in pretty insidious and attractive packages because they know how social media works. So we wanted a character that when you first met her you’d be like, ‘Oh, wow. What a free thinker. She’s so attractive and interesting.’ And then you sort of reveal that she’s peddling the same s–t that people having been peddling for a thousand years.”Stormfront kills Kimiko’s (a.k.a. The Female) brother Kenji (played by Abraham Lim) at the climax of a giant fight in an apartment building, where she has murdered residents to get to the “super villain.” Kenji is killed by Stormfront while Kimiko looks on in terror, having just been in the middle of an attempt to turn her brother back to the “good” side before her, Butcher (Karl Urban), Hughie (Jack Quaid), Mother’s Milk (Laz Alonso) and Frenchie (Tomer Capon) have to turn him into the authorities.Also Read: How 'The Boys' Faced 'A Metric S-- Ton of Pressure' in Crafting Season 2Kripke says there’s no way this traumatizing event is going to be something that Kimiko lets slide.“Yes, we are definitely heading towards a Kimiko/Stormfront showdown,” he told us. “Kimiko is somebody you do not want to cross and I would say Stormfront has crossed her in a pretty bad way.”So that’s what Stormfront’s racist agenda means for The Boys, but what about the other Supes? Well, Homelander (Antony Starr) is the only one of them who witnessed that behavior and what he really cares about more than anything right now is how she’s stealing his thunder.Also Read: Fall TV 2020: All the Premiere Dates for New and Returning Shows - So Far (Photos)“At the end of Episode 3, she really does reveal her true colors in a number of ways and really presents a threat on a number of levels for Homelander,” Starr told us. “She makes it very clear that she wants The Seven to be hers and that’s really– I mean, Homelander’s identity is based on upon his position within Vought as the leader of The Seven. So naturally, there is going to be a battle. There is going to be blood. There are going to be issues between the two. And taking down that super villain in Episode 3 was going to be Homelander’s way back into the group, and regaining some of that territory that he feels he’s lost. And she very clearly puts him on the back foot and it’s great.”As for where things go from here, Starr says that as bad as you might think Homelander has been throughout “The Boys” Season 1 and the first few episodes of Season 2, he thinks “Stormfront is worse.”“And I think most people should think she’s worse and it all becomes very clear as the season goes,” he said. “She really is such a big threat for Homelander and she’s definitely, because of the way she comes in, she’s a whole new kettle of fish for him. She doesn’t respect him and she puts him publicly on the spot right off the bat. So she’s a whole new group of issues for him to deal with and he’s gotta come up with a new approach and fast.”A new episode of Season 2 of “The Boys” premieres next Friday, Sept. 11, on Amazon Prime Video.Read original story ‘The Boys’ Showrunner Eric Kripke on ‘Frankly Disturbing’ Twist for Aya Cash’s Stormfront At TheWrap

Ahead of its second season, “The Boys” is already looking towards Season 3, adding “Supernatural” star Jensen Ackles, who will play portray Soldier Boy.Soldier Boy is known as “the original superhero,” who fought in World War II and became “the first super celebrity, and a mainstay of American culture for decades.”“When I was a child, I had a crazy, impossible dream — to provide Jensen Ackles with gainful employment. I’m happy to say that dream has come true,” said Showrunner and Executive Producer Eric Kripke. ” Jensen is an amazing actor, an even better person, smells like warm chocolate chip cookies, and I consider him a brother. As Soldier Boy, the very first Superhero, he’ll bring so much humor, pathos, and danger to the role. I can’t wait to be on set with him again, and bring a bit of ‘Supernatural’ to ‘The Boys’.”Also Read: Why 'The Boys' Gender-Flipped Stormfront With Aya CashAckles is best known for his role as one half of the Winchester brothers, Dean, alongside Jared Padalecki.

This time around, Amazon has a huge Baby Fair sale going on, with major discounts up to 40% on baby equipment, care and food.
Aya Cash joins “The Boys” in season two as the newest member of The Seven. Aside from being a constant thorn in Homelander’s (Anthony Starr) side, Cash’s version of Stormfront marks the Amazon series’ biggest change from the comic it’s based on.In Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson’s 72-issue run, Stormfront is male. But showrunner Eric Kripke had a very specific reason for changing the character into a female for the TV version.“We wanted to sort of create Homelander’s worst nightmare. And his worse nightmare would be a strong woman who wasn’t afraid of him and proceeded to steal his spotlight,” Kripke said Thursday during a virtual CTAM panel to promote the upcoming season. “I think that would hurt him way more than if it were a male character because he is a gaping hole of insecurity.”Also Read: 'Utopia' Cast Promises Amazon Drama's Pandemic Storyline Won't Get Too RealIn the Amazon series, Cash’s Stormfront is also very social media savvy, which Kripke said allowed them a more modern way of showcasing some of the “hateful ideologies” that the comics-version of the character is known for harboring. In the comics, “The Boys” takes place between 2006 and 2008, when social media was very much in its infancy.“A lot of hate and negative thought these days, if you look online, is packaged in really slick, social media-attractive ways,” Kripke explained. “It’s not like the old dudes with crew cuts in the 1960s newsreels anymore.” He added that Cash represents how some of those movements are led by “young people, who are trying to hook in a new generation and we sort of wanted to reflect how insidious that is.”“The Boys” return for Season 2 on Amazon beginning Sept. 4.

The Washington Post took a dive Thursday into the charitable giving of the 50 wealthiest people and families in America, revealing that many of them — like the paper’s owner Jeff Bezos — didn’t contribute “much, when accounting for their vast personal fortunes,” as the coronavirus ravaged the American economy and killed thousands.The paper did not shy away from shining a critical light on its owner.“Amazon’s Jeff Bezos, the wealthiest man in the world with a fortune of $143 billion and who is also the owner of The Washington Post, gave $100 million to Feeding America and up to $25 million for All in WA, a statewide relief effort in Washington,” the Post noted. “For the median American, Bezos’ giving is the equivalent of donating $85. His aerospace company, Blue Origin, pledged to 3-D print face shields for front line workers but did not disclose the value of that contribution.”Also Read: CNN Disputes Trump's Chris Cuomo Jab: 'Surely You Have More Important Issues Than TV Ratings'The Post heralded only two billionaires for stepping “into the spotlight”: Bill Gates and Twitter’s Jack Dorsey. While the paper highlighted Gates’ leadership during the crisis and the work done by his foundation, it noted, “In terms of donations from his personal wealth, for the median American donor, Gates’s giving to date equates to about $283.”Comparatively, the Post found, Dorsey’s giving equated to $27,000 for the median American.The 50 wealthiest people and families surveyed for the project have a collective net worth of nearly $1.6 trillion. Their publicly announced donations amounted to $1 billion or so, “which sounds like a lot of money but adds up to less than .1 percent of their combined wealth,” said the Post.“More than half of these billionaires have publicly donated cash and a few say they have given something — money or in-kind contributions — but declined to specify how much. But almost a third have not announced any donations and declined to comment or did not reply to requests for comment,” it said.Read original story Washington Post Uncovers Owner Jeff Bezos’ 2020 Charitable Gifts: Equivalent to $85 for Median American At TheWrap
