Queen Maeve's (Dominique McElligott) future was the topic of discussion on Twitter. 'The Boys' Season 3 Episode 5 puts the spotlight on the character twice — one when she has sex with William Butcher (Karl Urban) — something none of the fans saw coming, and then being whisked away by Noir after Homelander (Antony Starr) figures out she was planning to kill him.

If the supe were to indeed die, then perhaps it all began when she came to Butcher for help and gave him Temp V so that he could join the fight in killing the leader of the Seven. Reactions poured in steadily. "#TheBoysTV Episode 5 spoilers Maeve having sex with Butcher after he told her he was gonna kill her... this chick don't give a shit," one of the tweets read. "spoiler/// honestly I didn't think I needed to see a Billy butcher and maeve hook up until now lmao #TheBoysTV," another seconded. "Maeve??? You know what? I'm not even mad at Butcher, I get it #TheBoysTV #theboys #TheBoysS3," a fan commented.

Fans were also concerned about the possibility of her death despite the meager optimism. "Black Noir will torture Maeve for information (remember the knife scene in the trailer). But Maeve will not be easy. All her practice wasn't for nothing. #TheBoys #TheBoysTV," a fan commented. "Don’t read the comics! If the show follows them, poor Maeve does NOT have a happy ending. #TheBoysTV," a fan cautioned. "idk whether to think they're gonna kill maeve next ep or not... but judging by the fact she barely has any screen time they really could.. #TheBoysTV" one of the fans tweeted. "I just want Maeve to be okay... also Soldier Boy v Homelander has the ability to be the best super battle in television or movies #TheBoysTV," a tweet said.
