Is Cherie (Frenchie's girlfriend?) in "The Boys" blind?

Is Cherie (Frenchie's girlfriend?) in "The Boys" blind? - Inspirational Message on Blue Concrete Pavement

After they capture Translucent and Billy Butcher takes Hughie to Frenchie's place, season 1, early in episode 2, Frenchie's girlfriend Cherie feels Hughie's face, but she wears sunglasses and takes them off when she opens the door, so it was an odd scene.

When I first saw that, with the touching and the way she grabs the door on her way back in, it appears she's blind, but highly functioning. Her eyes also have a strange tint to them.

But there's no indication that she's blind in later scenes, which are relatively few, so I just wanted to confirm, she's supposed to be high-functioning blind or is that a wrong assumption?

The show was very well put together, so I don't think they'd put the face touching scene in there for no reason.


Best Answer

Pretty sure Frenchie asks Huey something like "you're working with this guy (meaning Butcher) and you still have your eyes?". To which Butcher says "you've still got yours". That leaves only Cherie's missing eyeballs that they could be alluding to.

I think though I dont know, that her eyes are somehow synthetic, and its possible she "turns them off" or something sometimes.

Answer 2

I don't know that these are sufficient examples but I feel that a case can be made that she is not blind.

As I mentioned in a comment, in Episode 3 - she single-handledly disposes of a location to throw off the pursuit by some Supes.

In Episode 4, she brings some knockout gas grenades to Frenchie and shows him how it works and jokingly threatens him with them should their relationship go sour.

In neither instance did her performance indicate lack of sight or compensating for it.
