Last week, The Boys introduced one of the comic’s most memorably weird supes: Love Sausage. Now, showrunner Eric Kripke and actor Laz Alonso have broken down the character’s unforgettable – and completely NSFW – first scene.

During the show’s most recent episode, entitled ‘The Bloody Doors Off’, the titular vigilantes travel to the Sage Grove Center, a sinister-seeming facility that is being used by Storm front (Aya Cash) and The Seven retiree Lamplighter (Shawn Ashmore) to create new superhumans using  Compound V.

Shortly after Mother’s Milk (Alonso), Frenchie (Tomer Capon), and Kimiko  (Karen Fukuhara) break into the establishment though, all hell breaks loose and several of the patients run amok as they show off their unique new skills.

In the ruckus, Vasilii Vorishikin aka Love Sausage (Criminal Minds’ Andrew  Jackson) demonstrates his appendage-lengthening abilities by trying to strangle MM… well… with it.

“Love Sausage came around reasonably late in the development of the script,” Kripke explained to Entertainment Weekly. “We had a couple of the drafts written, but then we sometimes reach a point, as we did in this one,  where we said, ‘You know what? It’s just not crazy enough. We’re missing that  moment that makes people say holy sh–.'”

“He’s a giant Russian man with attractive features – that’s his story. The name is ridiculous and it’s all so ridiculous,” he continued, before admitting that the crew would have “long meetings” prior to shooting the episode that was dedicated to deciding how many veins would appear on the character’s super-sized appendage.

“We spent 20 minutes on should it be circumcised. We arrived at, no, it should  not be but I get paid to have these conversations.”

Elsewhere in the interview, Alonso revealed that it was probably down to his co-star Karl Urban that MM became the target of Love Sausage’s wrath, due to the fact that such a sequence didn’t appear in the episode’s initial script.
