Billy Butcher captured and roughed up the Seven’s speedster, A-Train. He then lets Hughie Campbell confront the man who killed his girlfriend Robin. Billy plays a recording of A-train and the Seven laughing about the collateral damage. When that doesn’t push Hughie in taking action, Billy plays another recording of some Seven members choosing a new replacement for Lamplighter. Their criteria: female.
Hearing about their disgusting plans they had on Starlight, his current beau, Hughie loses it and kills A-Train by kicking his head clean off.
Quite different from season 1 of Amazon’s the Boys series, where Hughie saves A-train’s life by giving him CPR after suffering a heart attack.
