In this week’s episode of Invasion, lots of very silly things happened. Some of those things might turn out to be meaningful developments in the overarching story, and some might just be completely abandoned — given the show’s deeply inconsistent nature, it’s hard to tell either way. Nevertheless, Apple TV+’s lavish misfire has inspired a fair amount of interest, both positive and negative, and Invasion season 1, episode 10, titled “First Day”, could easily make or break the season in the eleventh hour. Personally, I think the likelihood of a major turnaround quality-wise is extremely low, but you never know. Anyway, here’s what went down in “Full of Stars”:

Invasion season 1, episode 9 recap:

  • Mitsuki continued to be convinced that she was speaking with Hinata, despite the fact that the voice wasn’t breathing in its communications, but the military put major pressure on her to prove it since they were planning a nuclear strike on the signal’s source unless Mitsuki could talk the aliens down. In short: She couldn’t, despite the timely deployment of a classic David Bowie song.
  • Trevante got Casper and Jamila to a hospital, where a reluctant neurologist agreed to induce a seizure. This gave him glimpses of other important characters and events, and eventually allowed him to see what the aliens could see, meaning he could direct Trev and Jamila away from an ambush. When their luck ran out, though, Casper put all of his effort into telling the aliens to stand down, and those efforts seemingly killed him.
  • Ahmed bit the bullet to save his family after the armored car they were traveling in was ambushed by a militia. Aneesha confirmed that her magic rock could kill the aliens and then used it to navigate through a gooey portion of some woodland.
  • Some ominous flashing lights filled the sky in front of several characters to cap off the episode.

Invasion season 1, episode 10 release date

“First Day” is slated to air on December 10, 2021, at 12 a.m. ET, exclusively on Apple TV+

Where to watch Invasion online

As mentioned above, Invasion is exclusive to Apple TV+. The streaming platform is available with a subscription costing $4.99 per month. New subscribers get a 7-day free trial.

Predictions for Invasion’s Season 1 finale, “First Day”

  • Is Casper dead? One assumes not, or at least if he is that he’ll somehow be magically revived in time for his importance to be revealed. If his entire season-long arc was just to tell three aliens to stop moving in order to save two people, one of whom was only imperiled because Casper demanded his services in the first place, then that would be an egregious waste of time.
  • What do the lights in the sky mean? I think there’s a possibility that Casper’s “stop” command applied to the entire alien force and actually cut off the invasion itself, which might mean the ships are coming to pick them all up? Or maybe the lights were the ships departing Earth’s orbit? This show is so weird, man.
  • What’s the deal with Aneesha’s magic rock? If Casper is the key to getting the aliens to chill, doesn’t that render the means to kill them a bit worthless? And given that Trevante successfully cooked one of them, doesn’t that slightly undermine the idea of the magic rock in general?

    How did you not get that the light in the sky was the aliens getting nuked? I mean, it’s like you were half watching this while playing on your phone or something. The alien goo reacted to the rock, but then faded after the strike. Caspar went down, after what? The strike. The aliens all fell down becaaaause, their ship go BOOM.

    A previsão tá muito engraçada, e não é o que queríamos. Afinal o Caspar não tem como fazer parar toda uma força alieligena, falo isso pois acho que não é o final que a série quer, ainda mais porque falta mais um episódio, além de fazer por sinal os inimigos mandar naves para buscarem os outros… pelo amor de Deus, vc não assistiu a parte em que falaram em bombardea-los? Afinal só isso explica o menino ter caído, ou possivelmente morto, já que falaram sobre as bombas nucleares.

    I also missed the part about the nuclear strike. I thought I had missed an eclipse that was clearing.
