Ms. Marvel Episode 3 ups the action and the plot, but it still somehow feels more scaled back than it could be.

Ms. Marvel Episode 3 ups the action and the plot, but does the episode as a whole stand up to the previous two? Spoilers for the new episode to follow… 

Kamala’s mother has also developed into less of an obstacle to Kamala, instead offering her advice on regular occasions. This make for some sweet moments, even if the amount of life lessons Kamala hears in this episode starts bordering on after-school-special level.

The show admirably continues to address how Ms. Marvel and other superheroes can affect local communities, placing the superhero world on human footing. Ms. Marvel’s recent exploits has led to the Department of Damage Control (DODC) marching into mosques without warrants, once again showing that the show isn’t afraid to tackle topical issues that Muslims face in our own world.

The action is definitely kept on a personal level, as the episode ends with the wedding battle between Kamala and the Jinn. The action isn’t anything spectacular, but it’s entertaining to watch, especially with the wedding reception setting – which previously featured a fun dance sequence – along with a Bon Jovi’s Living on a Prayer needle drop.

The DODC also appears to help Kamala out, showing that the agency has the potential to become an ally to Ms. Marvel, rather than an antagonist. But we’ll have to wait and see.

Not only that, but after a call with her grandma in the episode’s final moments, in which the older woman hints at her own superpowers, it seems like Kamala is heading to Pakistan in the next episode. There she will no doubt get into more action and meet more characters, such as the mysterious Red Dagger.

Ultimately, now that the plot has been laid out and all the pieces are in place, viewers can expect the next three episodes of Ms. Marvel to be an action-packed and heartfelt romp.

The fourth episode of Ms. Marvel hits Disney+ next Wednesday, June 29. Read our review of Episode 2 here.
