So far in Season 2, The Boys has given fans a lot of scenes and visuals that no other show would have delivered. Celebrity funeral for an invisible superhero, complete with a glass coffin and heart-clutching ballad? Check. Antony Starr's Homelander getting freaky with himself? Check. Black Noir ripping someone's face in half? Okay, that one is necessarily specific to The Boys, but it still counts. Episode 6 took things up a notch – or should I say "crotch" – with the semi-introduction of fan-favorite comic hero Love Sausage, and apparently the scene we got wasn't quite as graphic as it could have been.
The scene in question featured Love Sausage's key appendage – yes, it's exactly what you think – growing long enough to wrap itself around Mother's Milk's neck and choke him anaconda-style. Star Laz Alonzo amusingly claimed that he thinks co-star Karl Urban set him up for that disturbing sequence, and Tomer "Frenchie" Capon shared one moment that couldn't make the final cut that would have made for a bitingly proper conclusion. Here's how he put it to TVLine:
So yes, Mother's Milk was very nearly saved from being strangled by Frenchie taking a bite out of Love Sausage's titular limb. (Yes, this one counts as a full limb.) The idea is enough to give me a panicked set of goosebumps, that's for sure. But at least Shawn Ashmore's Lamplighter didn't set it on fire, I suppose.
Unfortunately (or not), Frenchie's emotional state was such that Tomer Capon apparently got too overzealous with the improvised plan, and his teeth tore through the physical prosthetic being used as Love Sausage's manhood. Because there was only one version of the penis puppet, Frenchie's helpful-in-theory moment ended up on the circumcising room floor.
Showrunner Eric Kripke explained to EW how the creative team went about crafting Love Sausage's meat-log, saying:
If only they'd used some kind of material that could have stood up to Tomer Capon's teeth. But then that might have been weird for the actor to feel like he's biting into an actual penis. Hey, though, it's The Boys! So if any show on TV is going to make an actor feel like that, it's damned sure going to be this one.
The Boys Season 2 drops new episodes on Amazon Prime Video on Fridays, and though there aren't many eps left to go, fans will get to soon see John Noble popping by as Billy Butcher's father, so that's something. In the meantime, stay tuned to CinemaBlend for more info, and head to our Fall TV 2020 premiere schedule to see when new and returning shows will pop up on the small screen.
Nick is a Cajun Country native, and is often asked why he doesn't sound like that's the case. His love for his wife and daughters is almost equaled by his love of gasp-for-breath laughter and gasp-for-breath horror. A lifetime spent in the vicinity of a television screen led to his current dream job, as well as his knowledge of too many TV themes and ad jingles.
