THE Boys' latest episode proved to be quite the tear-jerker as Billy Butcher was finally reunited with the love of his life.
Billy's mission from the get go has been to destroy Vought, having previously believed they were responsible for the death of his wife Becca (Shantel VanSanten).

However, in the season 1 finale he learned the truth – Becca was living an enclosed compound managed by Vought after falling pregnant by Homelander (Antony Starr), who had raped her.
Ever since, Billy (Karl Urban) has been trying to get back to Becca – and in episode Nothing Like It In the World he did just that.
After a romp in one of the compound's blind spots, Billy vowed to return and break Becca out, along with her son Ryan.
However, when they met again Becca said she didn't believe Billy had Ryan's best interests at heart.
She turned out to be right as he warned her Vought would never stop trying to track him down and even branded the child a "supe freak".
Siding with her child, Becca refused to go with Billy, leaving him utterly heartbroken.
He wasn't alone – audiences were also torn up over the moment and took to Twitter to vent their feelings.
"Yep, I'm f***ing sobbing over Becca snubbing Butcher, even though I know he's being a d**k," one suer wrote.

"Not seeing Becca leave with Butcher made feel me feel crushed. I hope we can see them again and next time, end in a much more happy note," a second wrote.
"It's so unfortunate that Butcher will never accept Ryan and that lovely Becca will never give him up," a third chimed in.
While a fourth demained: "I want Butcher and Becca back together."
Amid the furore Becca actress VanSanten gave her take on the emotional moment.
"I struggled with it because that's the love of her life," she told TV Line of the moment.
"And she loves Ryan, and that's her child, and she chose to raise the child over telling her husband – it's so complex," she went on.
"But she tells him in that episode she can't save him, and she has the opportunity to save Ryan so that he doesn't end up a bad human or a bad superhero.
She continued: "She feels that responsibility so heavily, and she knows that she can't save Butcher. Butcher has to save himself.
"That's a pretty painful realisation when you love somebody enough to be able to let them go, and she's had to do it now twice. There was so much pain in those moments."
She concluded: "I remember feeling so frustrated and angry and sad in my Becca brain that I ended up kicking a tire in between scenes, and I was just like, 'Ugh, this is the worst!' You feel all of that struggle."
Becca and Billy parting ways wasn't the only moment to make waves with fans.
