We didn’t have to wait for season 4 of The Boys so that Homelander thinks he’s surrounded by idiots. But in the new episodes which have just dropped on Prime Video, the leader of the Seven has decided that it is time to put an end to the carnival of happy fools not daring to contradict him. And what could be better than recruiting the smartest person in the world?

Sister Sage therefore joins Vought’s elite team, and helps the Protector launch his plan for planetary conquest, under the guise of wanting to leave a bright future for her son Ryan. And very quickly, the inordinate egos of the other members of the Seven take a hit, while Sage does not mince his words in the face of their stupidity or enjoys manipulating them.

But one scene surprised many spectators: abandoning her superior attitude and reflections, Sage passionately kisses the Fishman (or Deep) in a surprising scene. The frame then widens to reveal a medical instrument covered in blood: what do we need to understand about the finale of episode 3 of season 4 of The Boys ?

For many onlookers, the act was intentional. An opinion that we find for example from this Internet user on X/Twitter: “Sister Sage gives herself a lobotomy because ignorance is bliss, hence the junk food, reality shows, and sleeping with The Deep. As a super-intellectual, she can’t relax like the others.

Lobotomy consists of inserting a metal object at the level of the eye into the brain to disrupt its functioning. Often used in the 1950s, medical practice was mainly seen as a means of transforming an individual into a vegetable by stripping them of their intellectual faculties.

Why does Sister Sage give herself a lobotomy in The Boys ?

After confronting Homelander and realizing the gravity of his actions, Sister Sage likely lobotomized herself to get a break from her own brain.

The Super certainly has the necessary knowledge to inflict such a medical procedure on herself. She is, after all, the smartest person in the world.

But the lobotomy doesn’t mean she can’t get back to normal. As indicated by its file visible in episode 1 of season 4, the Super has moderate regenerative abilities. It is also interesting to note that her regression does not make her totally absent either, but confines her to more “normal” behavior: it is therefore entirely possible that by the time The Deep crosses paths with her, her head has already started the healing process.

Such an act would therefore be the most suitable way for a person like Sage to hope to relax and literally “disconnect” their brain, for a moment of rest.
