Invasion Season 2 Episode 8 Preview: Release Date, Time & Where To Watch


Invasion Season 2 Episode 8

Apple TV’s stunning lineup has been the talk of the town. Still in its nascent stages, Apple’s streaming service is definitely turning heads. Every new show that they come up with gathers hype…and at times, the hype goes over the baseline. Viewers learned that as they begrudgingly finished the first season of Invasion, an Apple original that is now here with its second season. While the premise – an alien invasion – is inherently an exciting one, the creators failed to live up to that with the first season.

This new season sees a host of old characters reprising their roles, including Golshifteh Farahani and Shioli Kutsuna.

Last season’s disappointments needed to be washed away and we were certainly hopeful that Season 2 would be better. However, the episodes until now have failed to buck the trend. It seems unlikely that Invasion will be able to offer us anything markedly different going forward. 

Here is everything you need to know about Invasion Season 2 Episode 8, including its release date, time and where you can watch this.

Where Can I Watch Invasion?

Invasion is an Apple original and will only be available to stream on Apple TV+ and its digital partners. This is an exclusive original series and given the platform’s global presence, can be seen from any other geography on Apple TV+ as well.

Invasion Season 2 Episode 8 Release Date

Invasion Season 2 Episode 8 will be released on Wednesday, October 11, at 9 pm ET/PT. For the new season, Apple has bucked its strategy of starting off with a three-episode premiere given the length of each episode. Expect the runtime to be roughly 52 minutes or even more for the new episode, consistent with the timeframe of the previous season. Episode 8 of Invasion’s new season will be released with subtitles. 

The new episode’s title is “Cosmic Ocean.” Episode 7 brought with it some overlap in the subplots, which might have some promise. However, the actual contents of the next episode are unclear at the moment. 

How Many Episodes Will Invasion Have?

Invasion’s Season 2 has been commissioned for a total of 10 episodes. This is the same number as the previous season. So, after episode 8, we will have another 2 episodes to go that will follow a weekly release schedule, subject to any changes Apple might make in between.  

What happened in Episode 7?

Episode 7 of Invasion’s new season substitutes Mitsuki’s subplot with Trevante’s, which was missing in the last episode. Trev and Rose figure out where the aliens will be striking next on the map of the local town. It is Ben Shelton’s farm but none of its former glory remains. It has been turned into ground zero by the military, who seem to be hiding a secret in the facility.

They are spotted spying inside and have to flee. Rose takes Trev to Marlene, Billy’s elder sister. Billy is Rose’s ex-husband who was lost when the aliens arrived on Earth. Trev promises to help find him and infiltrates the facility by sneaking onto the military convoy the next day. That is where he spots Sarah, who has just been transferred from the other camp.

Aneesha and the others do not know this and ambush the place. She had to convince everyone else to support her pursuit of her daughter. But her emotional speech won their hearts. Caspar is unable to get his instincts back and nearly gets the group killed by leading them in the direction of the aliens. The group survives and we have another significant development in this subplot, which is Jamila and Caspar’s attraction toward each other.
