Another Friday and Apple TV+ brought us the latest episode of 'Invasion'. The slow show finally has aliens in it although a very meager amount with people and the main characters suffering consequences. One of the leads from whose point of view we see the events unfold is Caspar Morrow, a  young British boy who has an air of mystery about him and has been suffering silently.

Casper (Billy Barratt ) and his friends after reaching London split up to go to their homes, which sees him and Jamila (India Brown) go to his apartment together. On the way, the duo encounters an alien but manages to successfully stay hidden. But bad news awaits the child when he finds his mother covered in the mysterious black stuff that indicates that an alien has been there.

Casper who always faces the risk of having a seizure reveals that there's more to it than just that. His mother's death leads him to finally take a stand where he shows Jamila his drawings that depicts dark, black scenes resembling images he sees in his head. As he says that he could have stopped the aliens, he explains that he has been seeing and hearing things in his head before the aliens even arrived. He tells her, " I saw them, when it happens (seizure).. it's like something is moving behind the darkness. I ran from it and have been running from it, then it came here (his home)". Casper says he needs to talk to it and knows he can as he's been feeling it for a long time.

He reveals that this only happens when he's in the middle of a seizure and hatches a plan to purposely have one. Declaring that he's done with the medicines they two leave to go to a hospital where they can induce a seizure, a long one which will allow him to make contact. Along the way, the two children also run into Trevante (Shamier Anderson) who agrees to help them reach the hospital after Casper's drawings eerily depict scenes from when his troop died. 

Now although the two set out determined to 'kill them all' will Casper really be able to? Firstly, the probability of him contacting them is low, but even if he does how will he manage to communicate with them? Assuming that he does this plan to kill them lacks details and figuring it out along the way displays a slim chance of him being able to kill them. The young boy seems incredibly unprepared with the situation being unclear and confusing. It's left to see if his 'plan' comes to fruition at all.
