In the episode 6, we see how the New Jersey police officials want to catch Kamran (Rish Shah) because they feel that his extraordinary superpowers can be a threat to the civilians and the world. They again go to the mosque for the third time inquiring about him and Kamala. However, the mosque's president Nakiya (Yasmeen Fletcher) ends up saving Kamran from them very smartly and foils their plans.
 
At the beginning of the episode, we see a scared Kamran as he got his mother Najma's (Nimra Bucha) powers and is not able to handle them. Bruno takes care of Kamran and they both soon start running around the city hiding from police till Nakiya takes them inside the mosque. Later on, Kamala in her superhero avatar also joins them.
 
Then Kamala, Bruno (Matt Lintz), Nakiya, Zoe, and Aamir conceptualize a plan to get Kamran out of there safely to another place inside the school. After the police encroach the school, an intense chase ensues between them. The police officials get exhausted as their attempts have been foiled by Kamala.
 
Later, Kamala tells Kamran the truth about his mother’s death and he loses it. He runs outside and when the police try to catch him, he publicly uses his powers to save himself from them. Kamala also comes forward to save him. She uses her enlarged hands to create a protective shield around Kamran and herself and hides them both from the outside chaos. She tells him to accept his new reality and creates a huge dent in the road, asking him to go and Kamran leaves.

It is a mind-blowing and well-written series with an intriguing and catchy storyline that has been brilliantly shot and conceptualized by the makers.
