Ms. Marvel: Episode 6


6. No Normal
After Kamran’s powers manifest and blow up Bruno’s Circle Q, the duo are on the run and eventually rendezvous with Nakia, Zoe (Laurel Marsden), and Aamir. Kamala also arrives with her new costume sewn by her mother as they all try to distract the DODC, what with Sadie disobeying P. Cleary’s orders and cornering the kids at their high school. Zoe uses her social media clout to rally her followers to form a mob outside while Kamala and Aamir duke it out. She eventually calms him down after his rampage brought about by the revelation of his mother’s death. She contacts Kareem, whom Kamran meets later on in Karachi after his successful escape. Bruno informs Kamala that upon examination of her genes, he found out that she has a MUTATION, which explains why other family members of hers don’t have powers. Bruno heads to Caltech while Nakia and Kamala drive around in the car Kamran left behind. Tired, Kamala lies in bed. Her bangle glows and she is sucked into her closet. A confused Captain Marvel (Brie Larson) emerges in her place.

Thor: Love and Thunder

♣♣♣♣/♣♣♣♣♣

Diagnosed with stage four cancer, Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) heads to New Asgard to seek an alternative magical cure for her illness. True enough, the shards of Mjölnir that Hela broke begin to inexplicably amalgamate in her presence, transforming her into Mighty Thor. Meanwhile, Thor Odinson (Chris Hemsworth) has spent most of his time post-Endgame assisting the Guardians of the Galaxy in liberating planets from domestic level threats, but a newly emerging danger to mortals and gods alike easily becomes top priority. Wielding the mythical Necrosword capable of killing deities, Gorr the God Butcher (Christian Bale) has a sole objective: All gods must die. With his pleas for help ignored by Zeus (Russell Crowe) who sits idly in the safety of his home world, Thor enlists the help of his best friend Korg (Taika Waititi), King Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson) of New Asgard as well as his ex-girlfriend who now wields his ex-hammer along with its powers.

Four chimes, four portals, four kills. Vecna lets Nancy go to convey his message to everyone in the human world, to El in particular. Team Hawkins decides to battle Vecna head-on, Max serving as bait and the plan being to attack him in the Upside Down while he’s on a trance. They shop for weapons as preparation. Team Russia discovers a lab inside the prison that serves as a breeding ground for Upside Down creatures, along with an enclosed swirling portal. Yuri takes them to a shack with a small helicopter that they doubt can fly them all back to America. Hopeless, they risk a long-distance phone call to Owens. Brenner and Owens end up in a power struggle to let El go back to Hawkins or not, but their bickering is cut short by the military’s discovery of their location in Nevada. As they fall one by one, Brenner carries El out into the open before he is gunned down. Team California follows the military’s tire tracks and arrives just in time to whisk El away as Brenner takes his last breath at the desert.
