‘Gen V’ Season One Ending Explained And How It Ties To ‘The Boys’

It’s been a wild ride for ‘The Boys’ spin-off Gen V ever since the murder-suicide featuring Golden Boy aka Patrick Schwarzenegger and his beloved teacher Professor Richard Brinkerhoff aka Clancy Brown and then only got weirder from there.

Season one of ‘Gen V’ raised a lot of queries and mysteries, while very few of them were answered and few were left unanswered for it to be resolved in ‘The Boys’ season four and the other plotholes will be fixed in season two of ‘Gen V’.

Homeland- the strongest, invulnerable, and most terrifying man made a cameo appearance in the finale episode of season one. The entire season was filled with thrilling cameo appearances including Soldier Boy, Victoria Neuman, Grace Mallory, and Ashley, saving the Best cameo for the last. The constant bringing of the Boys character into ‘Gen V’, kept both the series connected.

At the end of season one, Cate and Sam release all the prisoners in the Woods, which leads to a revolution against the humans at Godolkin University. This resulted in the supes killing the humans which led Ashley to finally call Homelander for help.

But instead of helping Marie, Homelander sides with Cate and Sam, disappointed with Marie betraying her own. Also, Homlader supports Cate and Sam because they are supremacists by the end of ‘Gen V’, an ideology that has remained the core of Homelander’s ‘The Boys’ season 3 political movement.

What Happened To Marie Towards The End Of Season One?


Knowing Marie betrayed her own, Homelander knocked out her. After waking up, Marie wakes up in a mysterious facility along with Emma, Jordan, and Andre. They realize that there are no doors anywhere, with the episode ending before this mystery is resolved, setting up a plotline for the second season. However, there are some theories as to where the friends could be.

It’s possible that the gang is being held in a secure Vought facility, with them having a track record of containing supes. Or maybe they are trapped inside Cate’s mind, which could explain why there were no doors in the facility.
