The Boys spoilers follow for season two, episode six 'The Bloody Doors Off'.
The Boys proved once again that it's a superhero show with a difference in its latest episode 'The Bloody Doors Off' as it briefly introduced a brand new supe with an undeniably unique special power.
While Frenchie (Tomer Capon), Mother's Milk (Laz Alonso) and Kimiko (Karen Fukuhara) are staging a break-in at the mysterious Sage Grove Hospital, a number of the patients, who have all received experimental doses of Compound V, escape their rooms and cause havoc.
That includes the aptly named 'Love Sausage' (Andrew Jackson), a character adapted from the comic books who has the ability to extend his penis and wrap it around people like a tentacle, which is exactly what he does to poor Mother's Milk before being forced to retreat after his appendage is attacked.
But Frenchie star Tomer has revealed during an interview with TVLine that there was originally a little more to this memorable scene, which he believes could be "the first ever genitalia action scene".
"Laz came into the trailer one day, and me and Karl (Urban, who plays Billy Butcher) read Episode 6, and we asked Laz if he read Episode 6 and does he know about the fight scene with the large whatever, and Laz thought we were kidding him," said Tomer.
"He thought it's a joke. He thought we were pranking him. He only read his lines, and then he went back and read it and came back to the trailer, and he was choking from, already in the makeup trailer before the scene, just from knowing what he's going to do.
"On the set, I was very emotional, and Laz took advantage of it. He said, 'Well, if I'm fighting this thing around my neck, I need someone to help me,' and he pitched it our director, he said, 'Maybe Frenchie can bite it off.'
"And I was so emotional after my scene that I'm like, 'I'll do anything for my friend. Anything!' and I just went for it. The problem is I tore it apart, and they couldn't use the footage."
He confirmed that the fake penis was very much there on set as a prosthetic, adding that "if they thought ever that it would be CGI, I'm sure that Kripke and the rest of the cast, they would just protest and say, 'No, no, no. We need a real real one.'"
Aside from all the 'Love Sausage' action, the episode explores some of Frenchie's tragic backstory as he reveals his feelings of guilt over the deaths of the grandchildren of former leader of The Boys, Grace Mallory (Laila Robins).
Frenchie finds a way to come to terms with his feelings as he meets Lamplighter (Shawn Ashmore), the supe responsible for their deaths, again and Lamplighter admits that he too feels guilt, explaining that the children hadn't been his target.
Tomer revealed that he was "freaking out" when he read the script for Frenchie's big episode, saying that he was "so happy" for his character.
"(Showrunner Eric Kripke) already knew what he was telling with those characters and where to take them," he said. "And to see that happening in Season 2, like reading the stuff he was giving me information about already in Season 1, it already was bubbling inside me, the whole experience, the trauma from taking responsibility and feeling ashamed.
"It's redemption, that's what he's looking for."
