Secret Invasions Ep.3 (RECAP)

Episode 3 of Secret Invasion starts with the Council of Skrulls planning to attack a UN target. They want to take advantage of humans fighting amongst themselves. In a flashback, we learn that Fury met Priscilla in 1998. In the present day, Priscilla is upset with Fury for staying away for so long. It's unclear whose side she is on. Meanwhile, Gravik suspects G'iah of being a mole. He travels to London with her and meets Talos. Talos warns Gravik against erasing humanity and reveals that everyone at their table is a Skrull. Talos wants humans to know the difference between Skrulls who follow Gravik and those who don't. Fury meets Talos in London and warns him about a valuable person in the US government. Talos wants Fury to ask for his help. Fury informs Sonya about an infiltrated submarine called Neptune, but she cannot assist. Fury and Talos fight about their relationship, and they shoot their way into the house of the submarine's captain. They discover the captain has already relayed the strike order and refuses to stop it. Talos kills the captain and calls G'iah for the termination password. G'iah successfully averts the launch, but her cover is blown. Gravik confronts her and shoots her. Priscilla goes to a bank and finds a gun in a vault. She is asked to meet Gravik, indicating she may be working for him.


MAIN TOPICS

Phoebe Waller-Bridge has already amassed quite an impressive action resume, writing on "Killing Eve," and "No Time to Die," as well as acting in "Solo: A Star Wars Story" and "Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny."


A quote from Slashfilm with an article titled Phoebe Waller-Bridge And Tomb Raider Writers Are Debating Lara Croft's Body For The Right Reasons by BJ COLANGELO

When asked about the debate of Lara Croft's body type. She says she’ll approach it from a practical point of view while honoring the legacy.


FULL-SCREEN DISPLAY: "She's a tomb raider, so she's incredibly fit," Waller-Bridge said. "She has to squeeze through tiny rock crevices all the time. It is a different experience squeezing through a small rock crevice when you have larger boobs than if you have smaller boobs."


Waller-Bridge's approach is welcomed because it's based in reality, rather than the faux-feminist justification parroted around the release of "Space Jam: A New Legacy" where it was implied that Lola Bunny's bust was shrunk down because they wanted her to be "strong" and not "sexualized," which just perpetuates the gross stigma that having large breasts means you can't be strong or that your only worth is as a sexual object.


FULL-SCREEN DISPLAY: "There's room to do something really quite dangerous. And if I can do something dangerous and exciting with 'Tomb Raider,' I already have an audience of people who love Lara and hopefully will continue to," said Waller-Bridge. "And that is a very unusual position to be in. It's the old Trojan horse."


So the question is, Is Phoebe Waller-Bridge Franchise Death? Well, if you ask Ben Domenech from The Spector, she’s MURDERING franchises and Indiana Jones was her latest victim.
