The Deep begs Starlight’s forgiveness in a new clip from the second season of Amazon’s The Boys.
Last year, The Boys blew everyone away with its humor, dark subject matter, and deconstructive take on the superhero genre that still managed to be fun. Early episodes of the show had audiences horrified by the behavior of The Boys‘ Aquaman stand-in, The Deep who sexually assaulted superhero newcomer Starlight. The series would go on to reveal that The Deep was a joke among his superhero peers and this behavior was an ongoing pattern for the character.
Last month it was revealed that The Boys had already been renewed for a third season ahead of the second season’s premiere. Around the same time, Amazon also released an extremely graphic clip where The Deep persued The Boys. Now we know what happened in the aftermath of that encounter, that has The Deep begging Starlight’s forgiveness for what he did at the start of the first season. You can see the clip from The Boys below:

Here is the official synopsis for the second season of The Boys:
The even more intense, more insane season two finds The Boys on the run from the law, hunted by the Supes, and desperately trying to regroup and fight back against Vought. In hiding, Hughie (Jack Quaid), Mother’s Milk (Laz Alonso), Frenchie (Tomer Capon) and Kimiko (Karen Fukuhara) try to adjust to a new normal, with Butcher (Karl Urban) nowhere to be found. Meanwhile, Starlight (Erin Moriarty) must navigate her place in The Seven as Homelander (Antony Starr) sets his sights on taking complete control. His power is threatened with the addition of Stormfront (Aya Cash), a social media-savvy new Supe, who has an agenda of her own. On top of that, the Supervillain threat takes center stage and makes waves as Vought seeks to capitalize on the nation’s paranoia.
The Boys stars Karl Urban Jack Quaid, Antony Starr, Erin Moriarty, Dominique McElligott, Jessie T. Usher, Laz Alonso, Chace Crawford, Tomer Kapon, Karen Fukuhara, and Nathan Mitchell. So far, the series has added Goran Visnjic and Claudia Doumit for season two.
The second season of The Boys will premiere on Amazon Prime Video on September 4th. Stay tuned for all the latest news on The Boys and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more exclusive video content.
