Secret Invasion - Episode 6


6. Home
Armed with a vial containing the Harvest, Fury heads to New Skrullos to settle the score with Gravik once and for all, but the radiation levels prove to be a real challenge. Meanwhile, Sonya flies back to London to confront the Skrull pretending to be Rhodey who almost convinces Ritson to start a war with Russia. Fury shows up in the ensuing shoot-out, revealing that the other Fury in New Skrullos is actually G’iah in disguise. Both she and Gravik are caught inside the machine and consequently receive the combo of powers of almost everyone involved in the Battle of Earth. The two duke it out until G’iah gains the upper hand and deals a fatal blow in the form of a cosmic beam through Gravik’s chest. In the end, there can only be one Super Skrull after all. She is recruited by Sonya with the promise of mutual protection for both their species. Vara decides to join Fury on his trip back to SWORD, their first project being the discussion of a truce with the Kree.


How dissatisfying would you like Secret Invasion’s finale to be? MARVEL: YES. Sorry, but that was anticlimactic AF. The Fury/G’iah switcheroo became obvious a minute into Fury’s iodine-deprived monologue and was kind of exciting because that's where the plot was headed to anyway. Didn’t both G’iah and Gravik get all that bevy of powers in that machine? How did Gravik end up getting flattened like that in less than five minutes? Bruh? Dafuq? I would’ve loved to see more powers displayed but it looks like they have some sick obsession with Drax and Groot. Or perhaps that’s just the cheapest party tricks the CGI team could offer that won't break their budget? The bright side: Falsworth and G’iah are now a team and very much alive so that means they can come back anytime it’s convenient for plot development. The only link available to The Marvels is Fury and his Skrull wife going back to the space station. The only plot development is how Ritson is now at war with the Skrulls. I’m not happy.

“You pimped us, Fury. You put us out to work for you and when you were done with us, you threw us away.” –Gravik
