Cate, who has regained her memories and wants to stop Shetty, calls her and asks her to meet at her house. Shetty says she has to go to the city for an urgent matter and postpones the meeting. Cate tells Marie, Jordan, and Andre that they need to find evidence in Shetty’s office and expose her to Victoria Neuman, who is coming to Godolkin for a town hall meeting. Andre agrees to stay with Cate until Shetty arrives, while Marie and Jordan go to search for clues.
Emma goes out to get some supplies and food for Sam, who is hiding in her room. She tells him not to leave the room, as he is living proof of Shetty’s experiments in The Woods.

Neuman arrives at Godolkin and meets with Cameron Coleman, the host of the town hall meeting. She also meets with Marie, who is trying to form an alliance with her.

The town hall meeting begins, with Coleman introducing Neuman as the vice presidential candidate who supports supes’ rights. Neuman gives a speech about how supes are not monsters or gods, but people who deserve respect and dignity.
She enlists the help of Grace Mallory, a former CIA agent and the founder of The Boys, but Mallory refuses to cooperate. The episode ends with a cliffhanger where Vic receives the virus package from Dr. Cardosa and then kills him. However, the ending does not clearly spark light on where the Godolkin’s teen supes are, and what is gonna be their intentions in the next episode.

The episode is well-written, well-acted, and well-directed, with impressive visual effects and cinematography.
The episode also showcases the character development of Marie, who goes from being a naive and ambitious supe to a disillusioned and vengeful one. She also discovers that she is not the only one with the blood power and that there are others like her who have been experimented on by Godolkin.
Overall, Gen V Episode 7 is a thrilling penultimate episode that delivers on its promise of connecting with The Boys and setting up a supe showdown that changes everything.
