Whatever Happened
To Jennifer
Esposito's Susan
Raynor On The Boys?
By MAE HARRINGTON O'NEILL

THIS STORY CONTAINS SPOILERS FOR

"The Boys" Seasons 1 & 2.

SPOILER WARNING!

Deputy Director Susan Raynor (Jennifer Esposito) plays a significant role in Season 1 of "The Boys," because she's one of the few characters who straddle the line between the legal system and vigilante justice. Raynor first turns to the titular "boys" to help her obtain concrete evidence of Vought International's wrongdoings.
Raynor eventually secures proof that superheroes, including Homelander, aren't ordained by some higher power; they're just people who were illegally injected with Compound V as infants. This finally allows Raynor to level charges at Vought — but she is quite rattled when a supe terrorist kills a group of American soldiers abroad.
Director Raynor briefly appears in Season 2, and again works with the show's main cast to unveil a grand conspiracy involving Homelander. However, their conversation is cut short when Raynor's head explodes — and the head-popping supe is Congresswoman Victoria Neuman (Claudia Doumit), who is using her power to advance her political career.
