Um… okay… I’ve got more questions than answers now… and I’m not quite sure the direction they’re going.

So…
Spoiler:
Priscilla is a Skrull and Nick knows it.

Gravik shows the Skrull Council the “Super Skrull Machine” and that’s that… no demonstration (that we see).

Talos stabs Gravik through the hand and Gravik “heals” himself after… I didn’t know Skrull could heal like that. Is that Extremis at work? Sure looks like it.

Gravik used the UN plane as a way to out the mole.

Gaia is the mole and Gravik takes her “out” but have a theory on that.


Now if I were a Skrull (and I know that a disguised Skrull “reveals” themselves upon death) killing a known Skrull, I would make sure they were dead by popping a few more rounds or some other sure fire method to confirm the kill.

What keeps a Skrull that’s been shot from playing “opossum” by changing after falling to make the other think they’d killed them.

Just a thought.

Well, we’re halfway now and I don’t think we’re going to get as deep a story as we want.

Spoiler:
Definitely Extremis-related, he's either in process or has become a Super Skrull. We've seen his arms become Groot-like in the trailers. Trailers (pre ep 1) have also shown scenes with Emilia Clarke that have not been on yet, so she aint dead.

I have a feeling that guy is already a SuperSkrull which I’m not really happy about because they were created as an adversary to the FF

I thought the first couple of episodes were good, but this one seemed like it dragged.

Still following the Star Wars/MCU Disney+ series formula where it feels like they taking a two-hour movie script, stretching and bloating it out to six or more hours, and slashing the budget to the bone.

Spoiler:
Without remembering the scenes in the trailers... I figured she wasn't dead as she is now a Super Skrull (from being next to the machine when it was activated).

I was really excited for this series but three episodes in it's easily my least favorite of the MCU shows. The dialogue especially everything between Fury and Talos is really bad. Sam Jackson is a really good actor but his acting in this is poor.

This series is not really what I thought it would be. Feels smaller and a few things remind me of Falcon And Winter Soldier.

It's like it's trying to be Andor and the Winter Soldier. I hope the last three eps turn it up a bit.
