Invasion season 2, episode 4 recap: A pacing puzzle

Invasion season 2 has been a rollercoaster in terms of pacing. Episodes 1 and 3 kept us on the edge of our seats with multiple storylines, while episodes 2 and 4 slowed things down, almost to a halt.

Episode 4, “The Tunnel,” ventures into survival horror territory, disrupting the established rhythm and deviating from the central plot. The episode opens with a group of teens, including Jamila, Alfie, Darwin, Monty, and Penny, embarking on a perilous journey through a marine drive to reach the Channel Tunnel.

Their goal? To reach Paris and search for Caspar, whose unique connection with the aliens could be humanity’s salvation.

While en route, a sudden musical discovery breaks the tension. Penny stumbles upon the classic song, “Kiss from a Rose”, sparking laughter among the group.

It’s a reminder that even in dire circumstances, moments of joy can emerge. Upon reaching the Channel Tunnel, they discover it’s closed to the public due to the threat of alien attacks.

The world is on edge, and the timing appears to precede the events of the previous episode. Their determination leads them to a vacant maintenance gateway connected to the main channel, thanks to Penny’s detailed map from a school project.

An unexpected explosion rattles them, but Jamila’s leadership keeps them focused on their mission.

Trouble brews when gifted teenagers start chanting “Wajo”, drawing more deadly aliens to the hospital. Evacuation is necessary, but Caspar’s condition complicates matters.

Back in the tunnel, the teen group encounters an alien threat, which they manage to deactivate temporarily. However, a horde of evolving aliens chases them, and their usual weaknesses no longer apply.

Escaping through a sub-tunnel, they face another obstacle: a blockade of cars. Amid the chaos, Monty comforts his terrified sister Penny, shedding light on their troubled family history.
