Last week's penultimate Ms. Marvel episode, "Time and Again," provided an interesting history lesson on India's struggle for independence and the tragic Partition of India in 1947 that tore families apart, this latest chapter has also set in place pivotal events that should make for a rousing finale.
After black-and-white newsreel footage relayed details of the end of British rule, we skipped over the chaotic Karachi train sequence that ended the previous installment titled, "Seeing Red," and instead went back to 1942 when Kamala's Clandestine great-grandmother, Aisha, and rebellious great-grandfather, Hasan (Fawad Khan), first met.
Their relationship deepens and they're blessed with a daughter (Kamala's grandmother, Sana) while external fires of freedom intensify. Najma arrives to reunite their otherworldly clan and learns that Aisha has hidden the magic bangle for safekeeping. As riots erupt and we advance to the August 1947 train station scene, Najma appears and kills Aisha during the mobbed exodus.
Flash to Kamala experiencing this same instance in a time-twisting event, wearing the mystic bracelet. She meets a dying Aisha who reiterates her duty to protect the bangle from Najma and the Clandestine. Sealing the time loop, Kamala is shot back to the marketplace where Najma and her colleagues try to enter a dangerous shimmering portal. Najma is reminded of her son, Kamran, and sacrifices herself to protect him as stray energy pulses imbue him with powers.
Muneeba and Sana catch up with Kamala and her mother finally accepts the reality of Kamala's magical destiny. Finally, we find Kamran hiding out with Bruno just as a lethal D.O.D.C. drone discovers his location and opens fire as we fade to black.
Let's catch our collective breaths and prepare for Ms. Marvel's exotic swan song this week!
