User Reviews

Good themes but slow direction.
18 September 2019 | by cruise01See all my reviews

3.5 out of 5 stars.

The episode follows Starlight giving a speech during a religious convention. Shows some themes and highlights about relatable concepts with people paying a lot to seek answers. And the judgment people give. It is a slow direction. Homelander is upset over their own boss cause she doesnt pay enough attention to him. Hughie speaks out his feelings towards Starlight. The ending gets a little action with the bad guys getting to Butcher. And Frenchie.
