The last episode of A secret invasion Here, see Gravik’s competitors (Kingsley Ben-Adir) formed a strong unity, while Gravik’s own position grew restless, many of them began to revolt. Starring by Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Emilia Clarke as G’iah, and Don Cheadle As Colonel Rhodes, this episode is also (thankfully) a very prominent character Charlayne Woodard as Varra/Priscilla and Olivia Colman Sonya Falsworth, who was the real highlight of the series. Episode 5 delivers big action amid many personal and intimate scenes that delve into the inner turmoil of these characters. That all comes with many hidden gems, of course, so here’s everything A secret invasion Easter eggs you may have missed.
Now that Gravik’s plan has been shown more in the light, it is clear that he does not intend to stop at the few DNA samples he has received so far, and now we know why he kept Fury alive despite the many opportunities to take him out. Fury is the only one who knows the location of The Harvest, the collection of Avengers DNA, which Gravik seeks to increase his Super Skrull powers. Later, when the Battle of Earth is referenced, you will learn how DNA was extracted and obtained.
Men with Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson) is apparently Fury’s go-to guy as well. OT Fagbenle (of The Handmaid’s Tale fame) returns to the MCU as Mason, after first appearing in 2021 Black widow. Romanoff is about to run from everyone’s base during the event Black widowAnd Fury is now at a point where there is almost no one he can trust, so this Mason may be the most trustworthy person in the Marvel franchise.
When G’iah (Clarke) and Varra (Woodard) are presenting Talos (Ben Mendelsohn) is an intimate impromptu funeral, we learn about the traditions that characterize the Skrulls. Although Talos seems to be “not much for the pageant,” proper Skrull practice would include full processions and prayers spoken in their native tongue. After Varra recites the prayer, G’iah simply adds, “Go ahead of you, father.” This gives us a little insight into the Skrulls’ thoughts on the afterlife, meaning that while they may believe in some form of existence after death, it may be a more personal version of “Heaven.”
Varra’s house, her work, and the human gene
While giving G’iah a tour of her and Fury’s home, Varra gives more than just a glimpse into the romantic history of her marriage. She established this house with Fury’s comfort and values firmly in mind, and while he has spent decades fighting his battles, it is clear that Varra has done a lot of work at home. She has a whole laboratory, probably helping her in her study of superhuman genetics, which is indicated by a framed book sleeve on her wall – the book she wrote titled Decoding the Superhuman Gene. Varra’s work brings the MCU closer to mutants and the X-Men.
A widow’s veil
Skrulls aren’t the only ones who can change their faces. The widow’s veil, as Falsworth refers to it, appears again in A secret invasion, where it was used by Fury to disguise himself and sneak his way through customs security. We’ve seen it used throughout the MCU, including Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Black widowAnd Agents of SHIELDWhere it is called nano-mask.
Battle of the world
When Fury is revealing to Falsworth the timeline surrounding The Harvest – how and from whom the Avengers’ DNA was collected – he does a lot more than just make references. Avengers: Endgame And the most legendary battle of the MCU. He not only confirms the dangerous reality of the blood of the Avengers left on the battlefield, including Carol Danvers (Brie Larson), Fury reveals that Gravik led a Skrull collector that Fury sent to collect DNA samples. This may take a bit of conjecture, but the timeline Fury has laid out suggests that Rhodey (Cheadle) is saying goodbye to Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) in his final moments was, in fact, the real Rhodey. If Gravik had been at the point of introducing his Skrull followers into Fury’s alliance (like Rhodey), then of course he would have kept the Avengers’ DNA for himself at the same time.
The Blip, the five years that half the universe spent erased from existence, has been referenced more than once in this episode. Varra comforts G’iah, revealing her last words to Fury before he is taken by Thanos’ Snap, suggesting that one should not hold on to guilt without expecting much time to reconcile with a loved one. The idea of guilt surrounding the ultimate failure seems to be a recurring theme, with Fury later admitting, “If that’s not enough, maybe I’m just dust.” Just like Thor (Chris Hemsworth) went through the aftermath of Thanos’ victory in the Avengers: Infinity WarFury holds a lot of shame for the failure of the universe in the fight against Thanos.
Tombstones of Fury
When Fury and Sonya Falsworth are visiting Fury’s decoy grave in Finland where he hid The Harvest, Falsworth asks, “Don’t you have another one?” Falsworth asks Fury, to which he replies, “I get these everywhere, you know? Dead men need options.” This is a direct reference to another of Fury’s graves we’ve seen before, the one Fury visited himself with Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie), Steve Rogers (Chris Evans), and Natasha Romanoff (Johansson) in Captain America: The Winter Soldier After his death stage.
Fury’s Iconic Eye Patch
It’s as indecent as an Easter egg might be, but it can’t be said. It’s actually rather refreshing; It’s a common visiting trope for these shows Finally suit their heroes in their classic garb in the penultimate or last episode. Here we have A secret invasionIts version, with Fury’s big moment is his signature eye patch. As Varra says, what Fury really values is privacy, security, and light. Like Talos, he’s never much for a contest.
