Probably; "product placement" is a long-standing practice in entertainment. Songs, books, and even plays also do it (sometimes for free, sometimes for hire or free product.)
I laughed at the callback about the Translucent tribute song being all over the radio, especially since last week, I said how much I liked it. The Billy Joel callback was also kind of clever--but this episode was either slower than previous weeks, or building to future events. (At least now we know what Doppleganger probably looked like when he's not performing, and it was nice to see Elizabeth Shue again.) That Annie doesn't like Starlighter has been explored in Spider-Man, but I like the way they're handling it.
I wondered where they were going with the "dating videos", and in classic The Boys fashion, The Deep meets his dream woman, and loses out on her.
That Storm Front=Liberty=racist in part because she's much older was interesting; as I get older myself I find the "old people are racist" trope troubling.
This show had some interesting details, like the barn painting of Stormlander with a Confederate Battle Flag cape, and the anti-abortion billboard.
