The go-to man for Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson) is seemingly Fury’s go-to man as properly. O-T Fagbenle (of The Handmaid’s Story fame) returns to the MCU as Mason, after first showing in 2021’s Black Widow. Romanoff was on the run from mainly everybody throughout the occasions of Black Widow, and Fury is at present at a degree by which there’s just about nobody he can belief, so this Mason will be the most reliable particular person within the Marvel franchise.

Skrull Custom

When G’iah (Clarke) and Varra (Woodard) are providing Talos (Ben Mendelsohn) an intimate impromptu funeral, we get to be taught a bit concerning the implied traditions of Skrulls. Though Talos apparently “wasn’t a lot for pageantry,” correct Skrull apply would have included a full procession and a prayer spoken of their native language. After Varra recites the prayer, G’iah merely provides, “Journey properly to your past, Father.” This provides us a little bit extra perception into the Skrulls’ thought of an afterlife, implying that, whereas they could imagine in a type of existence that continues after dying, it might be a extra private model than a singular “Heaven.”

Whereas giving G’iah a tour of her and Fury’s residence, Varra supplies greater than only a glimpse into the romantic historical past of her marriage. She established this residence with Fury’s consolation and values firmly in thoughts, and whereas he is spent the a long time out preventing his many fights, Varra’s evidently been as much as loads of her personal work from home. She has a complete laboratory of kinds, doubtless aiding her in her research surrounding the superhuman gene, which is alluded to by a framed e book sleeve on her wall — a e book she wrote titled Decoding the Superhuman Gene. Varra’s work brings the MCU ever nearer to mutants and the X-Males.

The Widow’s Veil

The Skrulls aren’t the one ones who can change their faces. The Widow’s Veil, as Falsworth refers to it, seems as soon as once more in Secret Invasion, the place it is utilized by Fury to disguise himself and sneak his means by customs safety. We have seen it used all through the MCU, together with Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Black Widow, and Brokers of S.H.I.E.L.D., the place it was referred to as a nano-mask.

The Battle of Earth

When Fury is revealing to Falsworth the timeline surrounding The Harvest — how and by whom the Avengers’ DNA was gathered — he does much more than merely reference Avengers: Endgame and the MCU’s most legendary battle. Not solely does he affirm the harmful actuality of the Avengers’ blood having been left behind on the battlefield, together with Carol Danvers (Brie Larson), Fury reveals that Gravik led the Skrull collectors that Fury despatched to retrieve the DNA samples. This may occasionally take a little bit of assumption, however the timeline Fury has laid out would recommend that the Rhodey (Cheadle) that stated goodbye to Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) in his ultimate moments was, in reality, the true Rhodey. If Gravik had already been on the level of instructing his Skrull followers to infiltrate Fury’s allies (like Rhodey), he certainly would have been retaining the Avengers’ DNA for himself on the identical time.

The Blip

The Blip, the 5 years that half of the universe spent eradicated from existence, is referenced greater than as soon as on this episode. Varra presents G’iah some consolation, revealing her ultimate phrases to Fury earlier than he was taken by the Thanos’ Snap, suggesting that one should not maintain on to guilt for not anticipating extra time to reconcile with a cherished one. This concept of guilt surrounding the failure of finality appears to be a recurring theme, with Fury later admitting, “If that ain’t sufficient, possibly I’m simply mud.” Very similar to Thor (Chris Hemsworth) went by following Thanos’ triumph in Avengers: Infinity Conflict, Fury holds quite a lot of disgrace for having failed the universe within the battle towards Thanos.

Fury’s Tombstones

Useless males want choices.” It is a direct reference to a different tombstone of Fury’s that we have seen earlier than, one Fury visited himself with Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie), Steve Rogers (Chris Evans), and Natasha Romanoff (Johansson) in Captain America: The Winter Soldier after his staged dying.

Fury’s Iconic Eye Patch

It is about as unsubtle as an Easter egg may probably be, however it will possibly’t go unmentioned. It is truly reasonably refreshing; it is a generally revisited trope for these exhibits to lastly go well with their heroes of their basic garb within the penultimate or ultimate episodes. Right here we’ve got Secret Invasion‘s model of it, with Fury’s large second being the straightforward donning of his signature eye patch. As Varra stated, what Fury actually values is privateness, safety, and light-weight. Very similar to Talos, he was by no means a lot for pageantry.
