Secret Invasion


By Alexandrea CallaghanPublished 11 months ago Updated 11 months ago 3 min read

I purposefully put off watching the ending of Secret Invasion because it is easily one of the worst shows that I have ever watched. Not just the worst Marvel show…the worst show…like ever. It’s truly terrible with absolutely no redeeming qualities and I promise nothing that happened in Secret Invasion is going to be necessary for the future of the MCU, so my personal and professional recommendation is skip it. So here we go let’s get through this final (and painful) episode of Secret Invasion.

Fury goes storming into the Skrull camp and it feels like it's supposed to be this big suspenseful moment but it's just not. Kyle and Brian need to get it together, I could shit a script better than this whole show. What are the qualifications for hiring these people?

Skrull Rhodey keeps trying to get the president to essentially declare war on Russia. He is no less annoying than human Rhodey if we’re being honest.

Nick’s popping pills and shaking like he’s on his last leg and I’m pretty sure we were absolutely not given context for that but sure.

Gravik’s big villain speech actually made a lot of great points, and once again the villain is 100% correct. Really hard to give a shit about Nick Fury when Kingsley Ben-Adir plays Gravik so much better than Samuel L. Jackson is playing Nick Fury. Yeah, yeah I said what I said. He fully phoned it in for this performance, and to his defense he’s got exactly nothing to work with in this shitty, poorly written script.

Gaia was disguised as Fury this whole time, and now she’s fighting Gravik and their both super-duper Skrulls. Again the last minute hail mary, making Gaia buff and badass doesn’t make her a strong female character. It makes her a poorly written plot device, which would be bad writing no matter her gender. The fact that this particular brand of poor writing affects women more than men makes it sexist.

Also if she was already buffed out, why did she wait until Gravik was too in order to take him down? Seriously, that is so stupid, how does that make any sense. ALSO all these heroes had at least 1 whole training montage to master their individual powers and you are telling me that these Skrulls had no problem balancing and utilizing a whole messy combination of powers? Mkay, this writing couldn’t possibly get any lazier.

The first draft of my first pilot was better than this show…and it had a narrator.

This ends with the president not declaring war on Russia, but instead declaring war on every off planet species. Now that might be the only semi-relevant piece of information going forward. That said that is also a wildly stupid stance to take, Carol is off-world, Thor is off-world and no amount of earth military nothing can touch those too so the whole “we will kill every last one of you” is not only bold, it's stupid.

The episode just kind of ends with Fury going off planet with his wife. Apparently the Kree are willing to go into peace talks with the Skrulls, not quite sure why he needs to be there for that but alright.

Truly a terribly written show, not sure who hired these buffoons but I really hope they don’t get rehired. From the poor pacing, to the cheesy dialogue, the campy plot choices and the horrendous portrayal of women, Secret Invasion contained some of the worst writing I’ve ever seen, ever. Don’t watch it, it's a complete waste of time.
