At the end of “The Boys” Season 3, Queen Maeve faked her death to avoid the threats of Homelander and Vought. She is safe and alive with her girlfriend Elena, which explains her absence in Season 4 so far.

According to creator Eric Kripke in an interview with TVLine, Maeve’s story is not over yet, and she will return before the series ends.

During a major battle with Homelander and Soldier Boy, Maeve loses an eye defending The Boys. To ensure her safety, she disappeared and removed her identity to avoid being found by Vought.

With the help of The Boys, she staged her death and went into hiding to avoid both Homelander and Vought.

Everyone believed she died in the explosion caused by Soldier Boy at the end of Season 3, but she survived. However, the radiation from the explosion resulted in her losing her superpowers.

During all three seasons of “The Boys”, the character of Queen Maeve exhibited significant growth.

Initially displaying enormous power, she later defended the innocent against the injustices of Homelander and Vought.

At the end of Season 3, despite losing an eye, she bravely faced Homelander in a battle that was suddenly interrupted by Soldier Boy’s dangerous explosion.

Maeve protects The Boys by pushing Soldier Boy out of a window to prevent a nuclear explosion, sacrificing herself in the process.

That action, however, exposed her to the blast, which neutralized her Compound V and stripped her of her superpowers.

Despite this, she survived and reunited with her girlfriend Elena, planning to live a peaceful life away from Homelander’s grasp.

Ahead of season 4, it is hinted that Queen Maeve has more surprises in store, possibly stirring up more drama. Until then, fans are eagerly awaiting her return, hoping for a powerful comeback.
