Warning! Spoilers ahead for The young Season 2.
In the comics, Becca was raped by Homelander and then gutted by the overpowering fetus inside her before Butcher beats him to death. Thank God, The young The TV show gave Becca an expanded role – until she still died of her overpowering son in the season two finale.
“I basically raised the second coming of Christ, or a new homelander. „
A lot happened in this finale The young tied several loose ends, introduced some new storylines and undermined one of the worst tropes in superhero stories. So we contacted Becca himself, Shantel VanSanten, to discuss the events of the season two finale, what happens to Ryan in season three after killing his mother, and the strangely hopeful message of this very cynical show.
“We’re ending it in a more hopeful place, even though we’re blowing up people’s heads and everything,” says VanSanten Inverse. “We even see a little bit of humanity in Homelander, and the cracks are showing in both the heroes and the villains.”
Although (something) evil is defeated in the season finale, the boys also lose tremendously when Becca is killed by her own son, leaving Ryan’s fate open. One of the biggest changes from the comics was the addition of Becca’s character agency, which undermined the “cool” trope (female characters who were only supposed to die to motivate the hero who got his name from 1994 Green Lantern Comic).
During season two, Becca attempt to raise their son Ryan to do anything Homelander isn’t, even if it means keeping him isolated from the world.
“Much of the season is the battle between nature and care,” says the actress. “Becca hopes that she can raise her son to understand empathy, compassion and love. Even Homelander and Butcher see how their human side fights their monster side, how they were raised against what they are by nature. ”
If Homelander is supposed to be The young‘Twisted version of Superman, then, as originally envisioned by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, is Ryan Superman – an overpowering being who becomes a beacon of hope because he is properly raised by loving, caring parents. Through the story of Becca and Ryan this season, The young argues that because of Martha and Jonathan Kent, Kal-El becomes Clark Kent, not General Zod. (2019) Brightburn took the opposite approach, arguing that a Superman-like child raised by loving parents might still turn out to be evil.)
VanSanten knew it was important that Becca undertook this great task of raising the world’s first naturally born superhero, and not without sacrifice.
„Eric [Kripke, the showrunner] said I was basically raising up the second coming of Christ or a new homeland, “she says.” That is a great responsibility. ”
There are even a few moments in the season that suggest Homelander knows that he’s just as upset because of his upbringing as he is and that Ryan is supposed to be different. He looks genuinely concerned as Becca protects Ryan from the world, arguing that isolation made Homelander the psychopath he is today. Becca replies that her existence as a loving mother is the only thing that matters.
Yet the finale seems to end the comparisons between Becca and Martha Kent as soon as Ryan accidentally kills his mother. Throughout the season we’ve seen Butcher do his best to escape with Becca and save her from Vought and Homelander – while he may have left Ryan behind.
Ultimately, none of this matters. And at the end of The young In season 2, Butcher only sees Ryan as a weapon, as a mini homelander who killed the woman he loves. And yet, instead of bashing Ryan’s head, Butcher comforts the boy and makes sure he ends up in safe hands.
“I think Billy realizes that even Ryan is waging an internal war between the half of him who are like Homelander and the half who represent everything Becca fought and lived for,” says VanSanten, more cared for and loved and executed what Becca wanted, namely to heal what happened to her and the superheroes and make it different? ”
The young Season 2 ends with a big question mark when it comes to Butcher and Ryan. While Butcher fulfills Becca’s dying wish, comforts Ryan, and tells him it isn’t his fault that his mother died, he still leaves the child with the government, which could easily turn him into another homelander.
In season 3, Ryan’s future will likely depend on whether Butcher decides to grant his dead wife’s wishes and raise her son – or let the government, Vought, and Homelander do what they do best.
“I know Billy will be a little shitty along the way, but I hope he can love Ryan and continue Becca’s work to make sure Ryan grows up with the compassion, love and morals Becca instilled in him” , Says VanSanten. “That may be a big challenge for Billy, who was tortured, but I hope he can love the good parts of Ryan, the parts that Becca was.”
