In episode 4 of the show, now streaming on Prime Video, the show’s main character Marie uses her blood powers in a new and explosive way.
After Marie’s roommate Emma has gone missing after shrinking down and breaking into the underground supe experimentation lab under the college, Marie turns to a classmate for help.
This classmate is Rufus, a psychic with “roofie-like” powers, who offers to use his powers to find Emma, but only if Marie will pay him back with sexual favors.
After Marie blacks out, she wakes up in Rufus’ room, standing over her naked. Then, she uses her blood powers to rush all the blood in Rufus’ body straight to his penis. As her friend Jordan tries to bang the door down, Marie pushes the blood too far and makes Rufus’ penis explode in spectacular, bloody fashion.
“We never came into this saying, 'We want to top The Boys.’”Fazekas said. “That scene, yes, is about a cocksplosion, but it came from a lot of women in my writers’ room who’ve gone to college and who’ve had these shitty experiences with dudes in college, where you’re like, ‘Is this guy a predator?’ Feeling unsafe. That’s where it came from, of young women going into college. We never start with the outrageous thing, we always start with the story.”
