“INVINCIBLE” – Episode 4 Recap (Spoilers)

(Recap by Erik Slader)

Check out my review of INVINCIBLE Episode 1: “It’s About Time” and Episodes 2 and 3 recaps here!

Episode 4: “Neil Armstrong, Eat Your Heart Out”

Episode 4 gives us in an interesting one, it contrasts Nolan and Debbie’s marital troubles with Mark and Amber’s first date jitters.

(Have I mentioned how awesome and different the music is?)

Ok, so this episode immediately starts with two extremely clever call backs to the first one – we see the guard from the opening of the first episode with his stepson in London where we see the result of Mark accidentally launching a trash bag into orbit as it explodes around them!
