The Boys' Producer
Fought To Keep That
Termite Scene In
Season 3's Premiere
By NICK STANIFORTH
THIS STORY CONTAINS SPOILERS FOR "The Boys" Season 3, Episode 1.

SPOILER WARNING!

Yet again, Amazon Prime’s “The Boys” has reached new highs and lows of what can happen if superpowers are grossly misused. However, it turns out that even the show where nothing is off-limits had an issue getting that huge Termite scene into the first episode.
Speaking to Den of Geek, showrunner Eric Kripke highlighted the moment while spoiler dodging back in March: "The first 15 minutes of Episode 1 is by far the craziest thing we've ever done, like, by a mile. If I remember correctly, it came in reasonably late because it's this weird, almost like 'James Bond' opening.”
After finally putting the fleshy pieces together, it's clear what he was referring to, and it's not that wild to compare it to a 007 pre-credit scene. It's a cocktail that only this show would be able to pull off and one that producer Craig Rosenberg was adamant about keeping.
