In October 2019, Nielsen announced it had begun tracking viewership of Amazon Prime programs. It said The Boys had attracted 8 million total viewers in its first 10 days of release, making it one of the most successful original programs on Amazon Prime. For the second season, the first three episodes drew a 7.2 percent share of streams relative to the top 100 most-watched TV shows on Reelgood within its opening weekend, beating the third season of Stranger Things (5.8 percent) and The Mandalorian (4.4 percent). The show's audience increased 89 percent compared to the first season. Nielsen ratings revealed that 891 million minutes of the show has been watched, placing it number three on the Nielsen list, just behind Cobra Kai (2.17 billion minutes) and Lucifer (1.42 billion minutes). It became the first non-Netflix show to appear on the Nielsen Top 10 Streaming Shows list.
Thorne is not amused with the soft treatment, and later, while Sam and Jon clean the castle, Thorne tells Jon what he's really doing by shielding Sam's cowardice: Creating weakness in the ranks that will kill good men.
Later, Cersei visits Ned in his chambers and suggests they put their disagreements on the Kingsroad behind them. Ned is suspicious of her visit and says that his job is to serve the king and the realm. But she is not impressed, telling him that he's only good for following orders.
Parents need to know that The Boys is a dark comedy series about a world in which superheroes aren't actually the good guys. This means that the \"heroes\" in the show are constantly doing terrible things including, but not limited to, sexual assault and acts of terrorism. As a result, the show contains just about every type of adult content you can imagine -- simulated sex, male and female nudity, violence, gore, profanity, drinking and drug use -- as well as dealing with the complex moral and ethical issues that the main characters find themselves embroiled in.
In the 80s and 90s, comic book writers like Alan Moore and Frank Miller began to use their work to investigate some of the ethical and moral questions that the very idea of superheroes might bring up. One of the most common of those questions was about the relationship between power and corruption: if superheroes were luminaries who lived outside of society's typical behavioral norms, wouldn't that inevitably lead to some superheroes exploiting their power for something other than the greater good It's only fitting that, ten-plus years into the MCU era, superhero movies and television would begin to ask the same questions. Garth Ennis's comic The Boys may not be as famous as Moore's Watchmen, but the series covers similar thematic ground by effectively pulling the floor out from under everything we've come to expect from superhero shows in spectacularly entertaining, if frequently shocking, fashion.
After his death Lee buries him next to his dog and fill up the grave while Clementine watches sadly. Lee suddenly sees that someone is watching him from beyond the fence but they run off before he can get a good look at them. Kenny then wants to find a boat and Lee goes with him while Clementine stays behind with the others. A bell tolls from a different location somewhere in the city distracting the walkers in the area. When they reach the river there are no boats except one that has sunk halfway into the water, which Kenny tries in vain to salvage.
Hours later, while Kenny and Ben inspect the boat, Vernon finishes his work with Omid and reports to the mansion's sitting room. Annoyed, Molly asks Lee to stop pacing. Christa demands to know why she is still there. Molly explains that she feels owed for saving lee's life and that she plans to get on the boat with them. Kenny returns and says that he has bad news; the boat was missing a battery and gas, but is in otherwise good condition. The group discusses Crawford as the only place that could possibly have what they need, but Vernon staunchly rejects the plan to ask them for help, instead proposing that they use the sewers as a way to get into the community silently and steal what they need. He volunteers to lead them through the sewers so long as they steal medicine as well. The group agrees to sneak in under the cover of night. Vernon departs to rejoin his people and share with them the plan.
When the group finally arrives at home, they find a motionless Omid. Christa begins to cry over him, until he awakens and groggily greets the group. If Clementine was let at home, the group will either find a dead Walker if she shot it or a live one locked in the closet if Clementine had no weapon. If Lee let Ben die, Clementine will be angry and sad at Lee's action. He is given medicine by Vernon, who then takes Lee out into the hallway to talk with him in private. He will either comment on Lee being a good man or scold him on his decisions based on how the player handles the first encounter with him earlier in the episode, and also on Lee allowing Ben to fall to his death if the player chose to do so, or leaving Molly behind. It is at that point that Vernon offers to take Clementine with him back to the Crawford Sewer group, to which Lee can respond by physically threatening him, agree with Vernon, or not answer at all. Vernon takes his leave, politely or angrily depending on Lee's action.
Lee then has a short conversation with Molly (if the player successfully shot the walker or brought Clementine) where they say their goodbyes to each other, Molly believing she's better off on her own. Lee then goes into the study, where Clementine watches Kenny through the window as he works on the boat. It is then that she begins to ask Lee if they'll have time to look for her parents before they leave on the boat. The player can either lie to her or tell her the truth, but either way she will begin to cry herself to sleep, where Lee will place the walkie-talkie on the arm of the couch and sit down. He soon falls asleep. Lee wakes up to find Clementine is nowhere to be found.
Meanwhile, a maid dusting Jesse's room finds a marijuana joint, resulting in his parents asking him to leave the house. Jesse picks up the joint and walks away. As he waits for a taxicab outside, Jake comes to say goodbye and asks Jesse to give him back the joint. Jesse instead throws it away, telling Jake it's skunk-weed before driving away. 59ce067264
