If you, like us, spent your time with The Boys Season 2 over the past two months wondering and theorizing about who was popping people’s heads like bubble gum, you were probably happy to finally get an answer at the very end of the Season 2 finale, Episode 8, “What I Know.” That said, you may not have been thrilled about what that answer actually was.
Warning: This article contains massive spoilers for The Boys Season 2. You’ve been warned.
As Congresswoman Victoria Neuman’s presence grew throughout The Boys Season 2, it became more and more clear that the anti-Vought politician would have a large role to play. Her resemblance to real-life progressive congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) helped endear her to viewers whose politics align with the show’s progressive stance, and by the end, many fans no doubt found themselves clinging to Neuman as the last hope to curtail Vought’s power going forward. Unfortunately, as the finale’s final scenes revealed, Neuman has actually been working for Vought all along. Not only is she a supe herself, but she’s been responsible for the head-exploding murders throughout Season 2, from CIA Deputy Director Raynor in the Season 2 premiere to the bloodbath at the hearing in Episode 7.
