30 minutes is all we get today (once you remove the recap, titles, and credits)Ö but none of it was wasted.

With two eps left, theyíve got a long way to go.

That was an unfortunate ending.

So was it just me or is Don Cheadle a female Skrull?

Huh hadnít thought of that by I could see it.

I donít know if weíve seen enough of the skrull society to confidently say what behaviors are typically assigned to the males and females of their society but if those behaviors are the same as ours I could definitely see it.

Went back and rewatched that part and youíre right. That Skrull has feminine features. Good catch.

Oooooooo... I think you are on to something.

Edit to add:
Spoiler:
Upon further investigation, I don't think so. Soren's (left) markings - freckles and face ridges - do not match the Skull (right) that walked out of the shower.

Re: Secret Invasion (S1E04) - "Beloved" - 7/12/23

Okay I finally got to this episode last night. That sucked that Talos died. And he died in such a brutal fashion. It's only going to inspire Fury more.

I thought something was off about Rhodey from the beginning. But, him actually being a female Skrull? WTF? So I wonder where the hell is the real one?

That was an interesting conversation between Fury and his wife and her coming clean that she was a Skrull.

I must have missed it, but was there a flashback with Maria? I saw Smulders credited at the end, but I couldn't remember seeing her.

She has been credited at the end of every episode. I guessed maybe that was in her contract since they decided to kill her off so early.

Rhodey has always been a skinny little thing since Cheadle joined up. Guess he looks more like a woman when he is nekked?

She shows up in the footage of being killed every episode. So they credit her.

Was it coming clean about being a Skrull, or was it coming clean about her association with Gravik's group?

I took it to be the latter. He already knew she was a Skrull, I thought.

Re: Secret Invasion (S1E04) - "Beloved" - 7/12/23

Still slowly going through this but Talo's speech to Gaia at the beginning of this episode was terrible. Ga'ia crapped all over it but she's right... she's basically like "tell me your plan" and his plan is to play like a good government lapdog and hope he gets rewarded even though Fury himself has screwed him all ways to Sunday and has never kept his promise. Then Fury just leaves him to die (I know the president was there and he had to get him to safety). Couple that with Fury's earlier "let's play a game" and it's like "am I supposed to be rooting for Fury here, because he sucks" and by extension Talos following him around like a puppy dog sucks too. That plus they fridge Maria Hill for... whatever this is? I probably should watch the end before commenting on any of this since it's all out but man who wrote this?
