Uh, think he's just referring to MediumHigh mistakenly calling Vought "vault".

When she crossed over, she was just a ship. But when she came back... she was bullshit!

What are you imagining her escape to have been?

The kid grew up believing he was in a normal neighborhood.  So we're talking about maybe something like a wall and some guards hidden away.  Cameras, too, obviously.  But this was not Supermax.

She showed a cigarette and lighter to a camera in the fourth episode and just drove off.  Butcher was able to sneak in with no trouble and with no knowledge of the situation while she spent years seeing the defenses in place.

Not exactly Fort Knox, especially when the real prisoner was the kid.

I guess I should have included the line about "the CEO of Vault", too.

Look, I'm not trying to make him tow the line. I just didn't want to pass up a bit of comedy that we might take for granite. Really, vanilla and Manila are one in the same, so we can just nip that pedantry in the butt. At any ray, he's probably past the statue of limitations on gaffs of this nurture. I think we can stop trying to make him curl up in the feeble position as it's obviously a mute point, and we're really just trying to make him look like an escape goat. Buy and large, he'll just be biting his time to catch us fouling something up, so we should all do a 360 and forgive him. After all, it's a doggy dog world.

I am awaiting his response with baited breath.

yeah. 

I was responding to MediumHigh.  Not the Fallout 'joke'. 

That was kind of sad.

2020 will be the year I gave up all hope.

Finished up season 2 last night. The middle bits did drag a bit, but the finale was well worth the wait. I bought the full run of graphic novels from Humble Bundle recently and started in on them. I'm through the first 3 editions (so like 18 issues or so) and I must say that Karl Urban's Butcher is a better developed character in the TV show. Maybe the comics gets to the Becca thing at some point after where I'm at, but the show actually trying to illustrate that Butcher is just as bad as Homelander is a good take. I actually think I prefer the TV characters to their comics counterparts, though I'd like to see more of the world fleshed out (without exploding bits covering everyone in the room).

I didn't realize the series creator was Eric Kripke, who was also the creator of Timeless. Makes a lot of sense though, considering the head of the Church of the Collective is played by Timeless's original antagonist and the Senator lady was one of the main engineer geeks from the show. Rufus the Pilot from Timeless also showed up as one of the image consultants in season 2.

Yeah - Butcher's origin is a mystery in the comics for much longer.  And it is significantly different, although some key elements are the same.
