The fight went to Vought Tower in The Boys Season 3 finale. Did that mean someone managed to save Queen Maeve?
Caution: There are spoilers from The Boys Season 3 finale in this post.
During The Boys Season 3, Episode 7, we worried about Queen Maeve. She was in a prison cell in Vought Tower, and the only reason Homelander was keeping her alive was to harvest her eggs. Would someone be able to free her before that happened?
With the fight heading to Vought Tower, there was hope. Before that, Ashley panicked when she learned there was a search warrant to find Maeve. So, she decided to gas Maeve to knock her out and get Maeve out of the building. Was that it for the queen?
What happened to Maeve in The Boys Season 3 finale?
There was some good news to come. By Ashley getting Maeve out of the prison, Maeve had time to escape Vought completely. She woke up from the gas and got to The Boys. From there, she was able to help with the situation at hand.
The group was split on what to do about Soldier Boy. Some wanted Soldier Boy dead, while others wanted Soldier Boy to take out Homelander and then worry about him. What did Queen Maeve want to do? She refused to let Frenchie gas Soldier Boy with the toxin he created. Instead, she allowed Soldier Boy to go after Homelander. The head of The Seven is the biggest threat.
At Vought Tower, things didn’t quite go to plan, though. Butcher, who initially wanted Homelander dead, saw Ryan there. He wanted to protect Ryan, which led to him telling Soldier Boy to stand down. That wasn’t going to happen, though. Despite Homelander being his son, Soldier Boy wanted to kill the Supe. He was disappointed in what his son had become.
When Soldier Boy started to lose control of his powers, Maeve and others realized that this could mean the end of all of them. She sacrificed herself by pulling Soldier Boy out of the window. He could detonate in the sky.
Did that kill Maeve? Not at all. It did fry all the Compound-V out of her system, though. At the end of The Boys Season 3 finale, we learned that Maeve was now human and she would go off to live a normal life with her girlfriend. They’d be off the grid so Homelander couldn’t find them to kill Maeve, so this may be the last we’ve seen of her.
