“Invincible” Episode 7 Review

Story posted May 1, 2021 in Arts & Entertainment by Jon Mead.

Many fans of the series so far are ecstatic with the recent revelations of episode seven, as we see many of the cliffhangers and questions poised in episodes two and three finally confronted.

Many fans have been following Amber and Mark’s relationship so far, and it seems that Amber has finally reached her breaking point with Grayson.

In an effort to win her over he finally reveals his secret identity… only to receive a very anticlimactic response.
It's swiftly and brutally revealed that Amber knew all along that Mark was Invincible, leaving both the main character and the audience stunned.

Although a relatively minor subplot of the whole series, viewers can’t help but get involved and question the future of their relationship.

It was revealed in last episode that Robot’s goal is to gain “back” an organic body, through the help of the Mauler twins, who we saw get floundered in episode one by the original Guardians of the Globe.

After disappearing, Robot makes his way back to the Guardians - in the body of a 14-year-old boy. His real name is actually Rudolph Connors, mentioning that he had his previous body taken from him.

It would be interesting to see more of Rudolph’s past shown to us in the future as the series progresses, as we don’t know yet how he lost his body nor do we know who he was before he became a robot. The development between him and Monster Girl is also something to look out for.

One thing that some fans are wondering - especially those who haven’t read the comics - is how exactly did Monster Girl get cursed and what did she look like before she had her powers?

In the meantime, the Guardians are on standby as Nolan Grayson, a.k.a. Omni-Man, goes on an absolute rampage - again.

The question that’s been going on in a lot of fans’ minds is why did Omni-Man kill the Guardians of the Globe? We may get our answer to this soon.

What sets off the world’s most powerful superhero is his interaction with his wife, Debbie, as she finally finds overwhelming evidence that he’s the one who did it.

Grayson, furious and blaming the Global Defense Force, kills many of the agency’s soldiers. This sets off high tensions and panic with Cecil protecting Debbie as they throw everything they have at Omni-Man.

Mark finally intervenes, not realizing till the end of the episode that there’s more to his father than he thought there was as he observes Nolan covered in blood and gore.

The episode ends with Omni-Man saying, “We have to talk,” as it goes to credits leaving many on the edge of their seats.

What can we expect to see in the next episode, the last episode of season one?
