Next Time On… Invasion season 1, episode 9 – “Full of Stars”
Invasion continues to be one of the most disappointingly bland shows streaming anywhere right now, but that isn’t to say that some vague things aren’t happening or that more vague things won’t happen in the immediate future. Invasion season 1, episode 9 might be the episode that turns everything around! It’s unlikely, but you never know. In the meantime, here’s what happened in the latest episode, “Contact”:
- Trevante made it to London but found himself stuck there. After a desperate call home, he went to get drunk in an abandoned local pub, where he eventually ran into Casper.
- Casper found his mother dead and resolved to fight the aliens, deciding on an induced seizure being the best way forward since he’ll be able to communicate with them that way. Getting to a hospital to facilitate this, though, will require protection, which is where Trevante comes in.
- Aneesha got a little frisky with Dr. Barton, but she was interrupted by Luke discovering a dead body in the university and holding his space dagger near it, causing a strange reaction.
- Mitsuki send the aliens a whole bunch of video files of Hinata and seemed to get a last-minute response in return.

Predictions for “Full of Stars”
This show is hard to predict since there’s a very real possibility that nothing at all will happen in the next episode, but nevertheless, we have a job to do, so let’s do it as best we can:
- Trevante and Casper will presumably make their way towards a hospital. One assumes they’ll make an effort to try and unpack some of Casper’s visions and drawings.
- Now seems as good a time as any to try and figure out what this dagger thing’s all about. We saw in the season’s best episode that the thing can shank an alien to death, and given the reaction we saw in “Contact”, there’s something significant here that would be a much better use of Aneesha’s time than a boring love triangle.
- Is that really Hinata communicating with Mitsuki? If this whole plotline is a metaphor for grief it’ll feel like a waste, but if it isn’t it’ll feel like a bit of an a*s-pull, so I’m not sure what the best approach is here.
