Animal rights campaign group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) has thanked The Boys for its unique octopus scene.
Now that season three popular Prime Video series is well underway, the show has delivered on its continued promise to provide wild and outlandish content to its viewers.
Although this octopus scene, in particular, has got fans pretty spooked out, even for the likes of The Boys.
*Warning - Spoilers Ahead*
As viewers of the show will be aware of, Deep has a sexual marine life fetish and a scene in episode three of the new season shows him 'getting off to an octopus in his fish tank (instead of the actual human woman under him)', as per Comic Book.
Most bizarrely, Homelander 'then serves him his Octopus friend Timothy, alive, as the main course of dinner. At the goading of his fiancee and Homelander, Deep proves his unabashed desire to be back in the fold back eating Timothy alive'.
Anyway, despite the unique scene, PETA has thanked the show for using CGI rather than a real octopus.
"The Boys' real heroes are working behind the scenes, creating a realistic CGI octopus so that animals can live in peace," PETA Senior Vice President Lisa Lange said in the statement.
"PETA is celebrating this series for helping viewers see every octopus as an individual like Timothy, not as an entrée or as entertainment."
However, some viewers were not as impressed with the scene.
One wrote: "The octopus scene in The Boys had me crying, shaking, throwing up."
Another commented: "Of all the things that have happened in season 3 of The Boys so far, that octopus scene f**ked me up the most. #RIPTimothy."
A third added: "The Octopus scene on The Boys was too much for me. I know this show is very unapologetic but dude....
"There's a line, don't you think?"
For those who still haven't watched the show, the synopsis for The Boys reads: "Superheroes are often as popular as celebrities, as influential as politicians, and sometimes even as revered as gods.
"But that's when they're using their powers for good. What happens when the heroes go rogue and start abusing their powers?
"When it's the powerless against the super powerful, the Boys head out on a heroic quest to expose the truth about the Seven and Vought, the multibillion-dollar conglomerate that manages the superheroes and covers up their dirty secrets. Based on the comic book series of the same name."
