It is safe to say that people loved the latest episode. Fawad Khan finally appeared on-screen after six long years and fans can’t have enough of him.
#MsMarvel Episode 5 was awesome. Effective use of time-travel, thematic rhyming, and slingshot storytelling… even if the series has basically abandoned its Scott Pilgrim influence at this point Even so, we’re back on track!

Glimpses of Nehru on Ms Marvel episode 5. It's really exciting to see our history depicted in such a mainstream piece of US pop culture. Only other time Hollywood touched upon these histories was the film Gandhi.#MsMarvel #MsMarvelepisode5 #Marvel #MarvelStudios pic.twitter.com/lnU1o8HT9B

#MsMarvel Episode 5 was the history lesson everyone needed.
These are the stories my grandparents told me about the partition. Everything from the framing and aesthetic felt straight out of a Bollywood movie.

Just saw episode 5 of #MsMarvel and this episode does so much. It was a great episode. There are so many emotional moments. The first half is amazing and the last half, while a bit rushed, really sets up the finale next week. I love it a lot and I can't wait for the finale.

Conservative Christian groups opposed Ms. Marvel when the first episode was released
The show was bombarded with bad reviews on IMDb when the first episode was released as Conservative Christian groups opposed it just because someone other than a white cisgender Christian male was getting representation. The Facebook group was trolled on social media and fans quickly left positive reviews after this incident.
The final episode of Ms. Marvel‘s first season will air on 13th July 2022.
