The highly explicit episode “Herogasm” of the third season of The Boys has finally arrived, and people are excitedly talking about it. The episode, being the 6th in the season, has been eagerly anticipated and hailed by the show’s creator Eric Kripke as “one of the more graphic hours of mainstream television that I think anyone will have seen.” Throughout the eight-episode season’s filming, Kripke started building anticipation for the episode by revealing that one of the most disputed arcs from the comics would be featured in the Prime Video series. In the comic version, Supes have a yearly party called Herogasm where they may all come together and organize a super-powered orgy while pretending to be a threat to the world.
In the “Herogasm” episode of Season 3 of The Boys, two members of Payback, the TNT Twins, host the event at their residence. To help Soldier Boy exact revenge on his ex-colleagues, Hughie Campbell and Billy Butcher accompany him to the event. As usual, though, everything goes horribly wrong. “Herogasm” encounters some speed bumps from Starlight following Hughie to Herogasm to Butcher and Hughie bumping into A-Train, The Deep, and Homelander. Against the backdrop of the mentioned orgy, it also leads to the first encounter between Soldier Boy and Homelander.
The Boys followers have resorted to social media to discuss the scandalous episode now that it has been released. The responses range widely, from Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s admission that he had watched the episode three times to fans’ fabrication of memes and general disbelief at the show’s contents. Check out a few of them below:

Not sure if I’ll ever be able to unsee what I’ve seen in #Herogasm but #TheBoys is the best superhero show ever created. The acting, the story, the parodies are all 10/10. #TheBoysTV knows it’s place and purpose better than any show ever created. pic.twitter.com/w44NyO32KQ

Even if the “Herogasm” episode of The Boys was not as stunning as many anticipated, the reactions were about what one could have anticipated. “Herogasm” is rather subdued in comparison to the comics, if only because the episode wisely decides to center on the ongoing battle between Soldier Boy, Butcher, Homelander, and Payback. The episode’s events, which include a jaw-dropping battle between Homelander, Hughie, Butcher, and Soldier Boy, happen against the backdrop of the gigantic superhero orgy.
Naturally, now that “Herogasm” has concluded, The Boys season 3 is rapidly approaching its conclusion, and a significant conflict is developing. One thing is certain as the season’s dynamics keep changing: this show will undoubtedly surprise you. Expectations were defied by “Herogasm,” and it appears like the remainder of the season will do the same. Whatever awaits the remaining heroes (and anti-heroes) of The Boys, it is certain that not everyone will escape unhurt.
