A new episode of "The Boys" Season 2 hit Friday and with it, even more big reveals than we got with the initial three-installment batch last week. For starters, fans learned that Aya Cash's Stormfront, the newest member of the Supes of the Seven, isn't just a racist superhero, she's a super old racist superhero who was originally known as Liberty.

a person standing in front of a car: Ryan Murphy‘s world just expanded. The producer’s first Netflix series, Ratched, dropped on the streaming giant on Friday, September 18, introducing the world to an entirely new Nurse Ratched — a character featured in the 1975 drama One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest. The thrilling drama is dark, twisted and at times, very funny, following the life of Sarah Paulson‘s Ratched, a nurse who cons her way into on a job at a mental hospital. It doesn’t take long for her dark past to be revealed. The actress, 45, who has worked with Murphy for years on American Horror Story and American Crime Story, actually didn’t get approached for the role at first. “My agent called and said, ‘Is Ryan not talking to you about Ratched?’ I was like, ‘No!’ I called him and he said, ‘I wasn’t sure if it was something you wanted to do. You spent all this time on American Horror Story playing a different character every season. I don’t know if you’re going to want to play the same character season after season,” the Emmy winner told Vogue. “And I was like, ‘I might! You could just have asked me.’ And then I thought, ‘Why would I want to face-plant in front of the whole world by taking on a character that was made famous by Louise Fletcher, who gives an Oscar-winning performance?’ It might be the craziest thing I’ve ever thought about doing and that made it too intriguing to pass up. I’m a glutton for punishment.” Cynthia Nixon, whose character falls in love with Paulson’s devilish nurse, felt the exact opposite. “I’d been hearing about the project for a while and that there were a number of characters that I might be right for. Then, Ryan approached me about playing Gwendolyn,” the 54-year-old said. “She is so ahead of her time. She’s a queer woman and someone who wants not just to be behind the scenes in politics, but also to eventually be the candidate herself. That’s a tall order in this period.” Despite her fears, the Glass star dove in and rewatched the film to start. Despite viewing Ratched as “heinous” the first time around, it was different upon rewatching. “I was looking for a way to get inside her head and I said, ‘This woman is a victim of a patriarchal infrastructure at this hospital.’ The question is would we have hated the character so much if a man was playing it?” she recalled. “We come up against our own expectations that a woman who is a nurse should be maternal and soft. If not, she’s a villain.” For more on Ratched, scroll through the gallery below.

Be afraid, be very afraid. There are just two episodes left of "The Boys" Season 2 and after last week's reveal of Stormfront's (Aya Cash) true identity and Nazi roots, combined with the fact that Homelander (Antony Starr) accepted her proposition that they go to war "for the culture," Cash tells TheWrap you should be extremely concerned about the supe duo's plans.

  'Utopia' Creator Gillian Flynn on Why She Killed Off THAT Character So Soon (Warning: This post contains spoilers for Episode 2 of "Utopia.") Despite the fact Jessica Rothe was heavily promoted as one of the leading ladies of Gillian Flynn's "Utopia," her character, Samantha, was shot and killed by Jessica Hyde (Sasha Lane) at the end of Episode 2, leaving behind Becky (Ashleigh LaThrop), Wilson Wilson (Desmin Borges) and Ian (Dan Byrd) to follow the crazed woman who just murdered their friend. So why did Flynn kill off Sam, the girl who knows the most about the "Utopia" comic book conspiracy, the leader of the pack, and an all-around good person who was just trying to help? Well, for starters, Sam was "created largely to die" to begin w

"I think everyone should be terrified of the two of them together," the Amazon Prime Video star said. "Because her agenda with his strength and narcissism is a dangerous combination. For Stormfront, it's a win to get him on her side and to have all the information now, because they sort of joined up without him having all the information."

"And I think Stormfront is trepidatious about letting him know the real deal and when he responds the way he does, she's like, great, now is the time to take over and make this happen," Cash continued. "So I think we should all be very afraid of where it's going with Homelander and Stormfront."

Last week's episode of "The Boys" Season 2 ended with the reveal that Stormfront decades-old is actually a Nazi — literally, from the Third Reich — who also happens to be the first supe ever created using Compound V. It's moment that connects the Stormfront from Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson's comics with the one played by Aya Cash on Eric Kripke's Amazon series.

All the real serial killers and convicted murderers featured on Netflix's 'Mindhunter'

  All the real serial killers and convicted murderers featured on Netflix's 'Mindhunter' Netflix's show "Mindhunter" follows the true story of the FBI interviewing serial killers using real examples of murderers, including Ed Kemper.

But in a departure from the comic-book version, a man, Cash's Stormfront is a woman who was born in Berlin in 1919 and later injected with Compound V by her Nazi scientist husband Fredrick Vought, the founder of Vought. She has outlived both him and their daughter and continued to spread hate for years while disguising herself as superheroes, first as Liberty and now as Stormfront, the newest member of The Supes of the Seven.

"It's quite a big reveal and I think it's a way to link back to the comics and to acknowledge the history of the comics while also giving her another layer of horror and the reveal that she's Liberty and that she's been doing this for a long long time and that Vought's original intent was part of her agenda and she's trying to bring it back," Cash said.

"It's a really fascinating twist, too, when you see what's happened to Vought over the last however many years and where it's come — but where it originally started and the potential that it could go back."

A new episode of "The Boys" Season 2 premieres Friday on Amazon Prime Video.
