The Boys: VNN Intros Blue Hawk; Black Noir Recovers; Homelander Sorry?

Like we had mentioned yesterday, this week has been a pretty good one for Amazon and showrunner/executive producer Eric Kripke's The Boys. First, there was the news over the weekend that the series was getting an animated spinoff anthology series entitled The Boys: Diabolical that will tell tales set within the show's universe. Then we had Kripke dropping an update on how post-production is going, which is always appreciated. And now that it's December 7th, we have a new edition of "Seven on 7" from Vought News Network (VNN) anchor Cameron Coleman (Matthew Edison). That means that in-between the blatant Vought-favoring propaganda, viewers will be getting another round of juicy intel on what's been going on between seasons (and what might be waiting for our heroes in Season 3). Two of the biggest highlights this time around? Our first look at Nick Wechsler's Blue Hawk and Homelander (Antony Starr) addressing viewers… to apologize?!

David Thompson's Vought research assistant Matthew Colbert aka Gecko was arrested for some illegal holiday-themed activities via an investigation that included the combined efforts of Vought and the Federal Bureau of Superhuman Affairs. Interesting to note that he attempted to throw Starlight (Erin Moriarty) under the bus as he was being arrested.

Queen Maeve (Dominique McElligott) is taking the profits from her Brave Maeve Pride Bars to assist Chelsea's Angels in helping homeless LGBTQ teens in New York City.

Eagle the Archer (Langston Kerman) is trading his bow and arrow for a microphone, with his new rap album Bullseye Beats being distributed through Vought and the first single "Bow & Quiver" dropping soon.

OurSheet CEO Mickey Londale is welcoming aboard Blue Hawk (Nick Wechsler) to promote his 4Freedom brand of goods, from toilet paper to coffee. Here's a look at Blue Hawk in his full costume:

COMMERCIAL BREAK! Make sure to get your tickets for the Vought Super Christmas Spectacular, hosted by Coleman live from Vought Square (and available to stream for those with Vought+ Super Access) and starring some of your favorite supes.

Black Noir (Nathan Mitchell) has made a full recovery from his forced allergic reaction last season and is the proud spokesperson for Vought's new line of bulletproof school backpacks for kids.

Speaking of Starlight, she was the guest of honor at a benefit hosted by The Covenant House, honoring her work with the community and in fighting crime. Along with her teammates on The Seven, notable attendees included Mr. Stan Edgar (Giancarlo Esposito) as well as the FBSA's Congresswoman Victoria Neuman (Claudia Doumit) and Hugh Campbell (Jack Quaid).

The final segment was meant to be a commentary from Coleman but was interrupted with a "breaking news" message from Homelander (Antony Starr) where he spoke directly to the viewers to apologize (?!?) for everything having to do with the Stormfront (Aya Cash) mess and wanting everyone to know, "I'm listening."
