What’s the one factor you’ll by no means anticipate from Prime Video’s The Boys, notably in the course of season that kicked off with a person exploding out of one other man’s penis? How about — and spoilers previous this level — a musical quantity set to Judy Garland’s model of “I Got Rhythm” from 1943’s Girl Crazy?
“It was a lot enjoyable,” The Boys star Karen Fukuhara advised Decider of this week’s wild track and dance sequence. “I imply, we had weeks and weeks of dance rehearsal main as much as it, and I additionally acquired some singing classes, as a result of I wanted it.”
Though co-star Jack Quaid kindly disagreed (“I heard your voice in Kipo. You didn’t want it.”), it’s stunning to listen to the in any other case mute Kimiko belt out Broadway fashion showtunes. And actually, it’s one thing that’s been constructing because the Season 3 premiere, when Kimiko noticed a girl at a celebration enjoying piano, and imagined herself singing alongside.
In this week’s episode, “The Last Time To Look On This World Of Lies”, Kimiko has misplaced her superpowers because of an assault within the earlier episode by Soldier Boy (Jensen Ackles), the present’s Captain America stand-in who can also seemingly take away Compound V from an individual’s system. As she recuperates in a hospital mattress with Frenchie (Tomer Capone) watching Girl Crazy, she seemingly begins to talk, creaking out the phrase “I acquired rhythm.” And it’s cheap to assume that maybe the Compound V in her system is the factor that has been stopping her from talking… Up till she begins singing and dancing.
“It virtually form of felt like summer season camp, as a result of we acquired to do it with Tomer,” Fukuhara contiinued. “I’d prefer to say that it fueled our different scenes and the connection of the characters and it deepened Kimiko and Frenchie’s… form of this telepathic, soulmate relationship that they’ve. But on the day, it was really magical. It was lovely. Everything was colourful, even the props to the costumes.”
Over the course of the quantity, there are traditional The Boys fashion touches, like flashes of sunshine from docs clapping defibrillators, musical bedpans, and sufferers dancing on crutches. But probably the most fantastical element for Fukuhara was a comparatively refined change in her costume to make the quantity work.
“I believe there’s, sadly, a tragic struggle sequence following the dance quantity, and in that one I put on one thing totally different from the hospital robe, though it’s technically the identical outfit,” Fukuhara recalled. “For the dance sequence, we made it flare out somewhat extra and it’s somewhat extra of a vibrant blue. And so it was very nice to see all the small print come collectively on the day.”
Quipped co-star Karl Urban, “And a beautiful counterpoint to all the enormous penis within the present.”
