‘Secret Invasion’ Episode 2 Shows the Cost of Nick Fury’s Broken Promises
The episode, from 1995, retraces how Fury first met the Skrulls, met Talos (Ben Mendelsohn), and promised to find their home for aliens. The show then cuts to 1997 in Brixton, London, where Fury is building his first network of Skrull agents. A female Skrull named Varra introduced Fury to young Gravik, a Skrull child whose parents were killed by the Kree. Gravik escaped behind enemy lines and arrived on Earth alone in a spaceship. Valla thinks he’s a great fit for their network and asks Fury to talk to him. Fury made a connection with Gravik, including him.

Skrull Brogan (ben peel), pretending to be an American, was arrested by the Russians just as Talos was trying to take Fury away.
After the opening credits, we find ourselves on a train from Moscow to Warsaw, where Russian soldiers are looking for Nick Fury. They knocked on the carriage and asked the woman inside if she had seen him, but she laughed and said they were more likely to find aliens on the train than black Americans. The soldiers left, the woman became Talos, and Fury emerged from the bathroom. As they talked, Fury reminisced about his childhood, telling Talos how he rode the train from Alabama to Detroit with his mother, and mentioned a game they used to play called “Tell me something about me.” things you don’t know”. At one point, Fury’s mother asked him to tell her something she didn’t know about him and a girl named Suzie he was dating at the time. He had obviously lied to her, but the mere fact that he lied was enough to tell her everything she needed to know. Here’s another scene that’s similar to the story about his grandfather in Fury. Captain America: The Winter Soldierwhich is a nice touch for fans.
Fury asks Talos about the destruction of Skrulls (homeworld of the Skrulls), and Talos tells how they were attacked and how the millions of Skrulls left once they realized they couldn’t win How to escape. Fury then asked about the fleeing Skrulls, and Talos admitted that they were on Earth, a million in all. This shocked Fury, who said Talos had lied to him, but Talos argued that his people were being hunted across the universe. Summoning them to Earth is the only way to keep them safe. Talos hopes that with Fury’s help, humans and Skrulls can coexist on Earth, but Fury thinks this is impossible. “Humans can’t coexist,” Fury said, making it clear that there’s no room for Skrulls on Earth. He ordered Talos to get off, and the Skrull did, leaving Fury to deal with the enormous information he had learned. In London, Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders) mother Elizabeth, by Juliet Stevenson, putting away his daughter’s coffin, the former S.H.I.E.L.D. director received a full military send-off. Elizabeth met Fury there, and he told her that Maria died because someone was trying to hurt him. Elizabeth, outraged that he had caused Maria’s death, asked Fury to make sure her daughter’s death was not in vain.

At the council meeting, Gravik went in without Gia, gave her a gun, and told her to shoot the guards if they didn’t return within an hour. When Gravik enters the meeting, both the Prime Minister and Secretary General are revealed to be Skrulls and members of the Council.

The Secretary asked him what he would do if the Avengers came back, but Gravik said he had thought of that and asked the Council to believe him. It was revealed that the prime minister was working with Gravik and handing over the committee to him, appointing him general and giving him full, unrestricted powers.

He then reveals that they’ve found Brogan’s location and are taking her to free the captured rebels.
Meanwhile, Brogan is posturing as always, refusing to reveal anything to Sonia, but she injects him with a chemical that causes his blood to boil. The pain was enough to make Brogan’s tongue loose.
