Invasion Episode 9 Official Press Release
Is Ahmed Dead at the End of Invasion Episode 9?
Yes, Ahmed is most likely no longer alive. Ahmed was having an affair and preparing to leave his family when the invasion began.
He nearly abandoned Aneesha and their children a couple of times after that. People in the facility become agitated after learning about the artefact in episode 9.
Against the aliens, no ordinary weapon works. The idea that the opponent appears to be indestructible has instilled in them an uncontrollable fear.
The artifact’s presence provides a ray of hope to the people. However, given the current state of the battle, personal protection takes precedence above saving humanity.
As the Malik family and a company of troops go to Washington, DC, they are ambushed by a gang of individuals armed with firearms, war gear, and armoured vehicles who aim to steal the relic from Aneesha.
When all of their escort members are dead, Ahmed resolves to make the ultimate sacrifice in order to give his family enough time to flee.
He approaches a rogue soldier who Aneesha is familiar with and whom he has already met. The soldier tries to persuade him not to call Aneesha, stating that he and his associates will not harm him or his family.
Ahmed, on the other hand, sees right through the deception. He tells Aneesha to run with their children just before he is gunned down.
Ahmed redeems himself as he dies protecting his family, despite his prior poor decisions.
What Happens to the Extraterrestrials? Was that truly Hinata on the other end of the line?
Mitsuki is convinced that she is conversing with Hinata during the entire meeting. The other people at the observation centre, including Hinata’s father, aren’t so sure.
They quickly notice that the speech pattern on the other end lacks breathing pauses, indicating that it is synced. The US government takes advantage of this opportunity to gain a lock on the alien ship and fires nuclear-tipped missiles against it.
The characters throughout the globe watched as the alien ship burns as brightly as the sun for a few moments.
It’s probable that Hinata was the one who responded to Mitsuki. The aliens may have rescued her from Hoshi’s wreckage and were attempting to establish contact with Earth through her.
It’s also possible that the aliens created a replica of Hinata using her memories, which they most likely harvested after taking her body. That’s how they first learned of David Bowie.
Casper’s attack into their network, on the other hand, occurred at the same time. Casper can manipulate the aliens with his mind, as shown in Episode 9.
His command to stop making all of the aliens in the solar system motionless, not just those in the hospital. And the nukes landed at precisely the exact time, destroying the alien ship.
Is Casper Really Dead?
Casper isn’t dead, believe it or not. He appears to collapse at the end of the episode, and ward makes an attempt to resuscitate him, but he is unsuccessful.
Casper’s consciousness is most likely buried somewhere deep within his head, where the link with the extraterrestrial network still persists, even though it appears that most of these otherworldly individuals died when their ship blew up.
Casper’s activities deliver mankind its first win in the conflict, even though the rest of the world is unaware of it. But it’s safe to assume that the battle with this nefarious alien civilisation is only getting started.
