Invincible episode 7 recap
If I’ve ever been more interested in a TV series, it has to be Invincible. And Invincible episode 7 is a testament to that.
Titled We Need to Talk, the episode has everything that you’d wish for and then some. As the season is slowly coming to an end, episode 7 is gnarly and bloody and keeps you absolutely on edge.
Invincible episode 7 has Mark finally getting dumped by Amber. Heartbroken and without much good advice from William, he goes off to meet Eve who is living her absolute best life. Honestly, looking at her made me want to go live in the forest, only if I had superpowers.
On the other hand, Debbie confronts Nolan and after he refuses to tell her what’s going on, she asks him to leave. Debbie is then taken by Cecil to his base and Omni-Man goes on a rampage to find Mark. However, no one knows the latter’s whereabouts.
Invincible episode 7 is mostly concerned with everyone trying to find Mark, particularly Nolan. However, that doesn’t take away from how absolutely breathtaking the episode is. It’s thrilling and Omni-Man eviscerating everything and everyone in front of him is chilling. As the world watches what he’s doing, Omni-Man does not stop his rampage and makes us question his motives even more. This makes me feel like there genuinely is something else at play here because we are yet to ascertain why Nolan’s doing what he’s doing.
On the other hand, Robot gets his consciousness transferred to a new body that’s a replication of Rex’s DNA. His feelings for Monster Girl is quite cute, although I understand why everyone would find it creepy. On the other hand, Robot’s fight with the Mauler twins gets cut short because of the Omni-Man emergency.
In a bid to delay Nolan meeting Mark, Cecil goes in all guns blazing and throws in all of his options to keep the former occupied. From death rays from the sky to jacked-up tentacled monsters, Cecil does it all. At one point, Omni-Man also meets The Immortal, one of the Guardians whom he murdered. As he murders him again, Mark is astonished to see how violent his father has become. The episode ends with Nolan telling his son that they need to talk.
As the season slowly comes to an end, I am more and more interested to learn what Omni-Man’s intentions are behind his actions and whether Cecil is as good a character as he makes himself out to be. Invincible episode 7 did not throw any light on these questions, making me more curious than ever. I am sure there’s more to it than meets the eye, but the question is what else are we not seeing. Only time will tell that, but I am continually impressed by how well Invincible is weaving its story and keeping the audiences engaged.
Invincible episode 7 is streaming on Amazon Prime Video.
