The seventh episode of Marvel’s Inhumans airs tonight at 9 p.m. ET on ABC, and you don’t want to miss it. You can still watch the latest chapter in the new Marvel drama if you aren’t near a television.
Episode 7 of Inhumans is titled “Havoc in the Hidden Land” and is the second-to-last episode of the season. In this episode, The Royal Family returns to Attilan and comes face-to-face with Maximus. It’s a matter of time before a truce is reached or an all-out war begins.

This week, we can expect the Royal Family to leave Earth and return to Attilan to come face-to-face with Maximus.
In last week’s episode, Gorgon and Karnak were able to defeat Auron, Gorgon sacrificed himself for the greater good and Maximus was informed of an attempt on his life.
Maximus’ friend Tybor was the one who informed him of the existence of the threat on his life, but it turns out that Tybor was also involved in that conspiracy. At the end of the episode, Maximus was seen slitting Tybor’s throat and being generally insecure about his lack of Inhuman powers.
“Do you think I’m a stupid human?” Maximus screamed.
Back on Earth, since Crystal was the last member to reunite with Black Bolt and the Royal Family has their mode of transportation, there’s no real reason for them to stick around.
Gorgon’s death will certainly leave a hole for some of the characters, but since he’s only been on the show for these 6 episodes, it doesn’t feel as though the creators were trying to make us feel too much yet.
With just 2 episodes left, it’s probably time for the show to pick up more and get down to business. Maximus is scared of the Royal Family members returning to Attilan and overthrowing him, as we know from last week’s dream sequence when Maximus had a dream about being confronted by the Inhumans. It’s likely that Maximus’ fears we saw in the last episode will come to pass as the Royal Family heads back to Attilan.
When Maximus woke up from his fear-induced dream, it was with a new vigor to crush his opposition. He sent some bad guys after Black Bolt and the others.
Tybor had the courage to bring up the fact that the people of Attilan won’t like Maximus as much once they realize he’s sending minors (and miners) to combat.
This has all set up the show for an emotional season finale, with Black Bolt coming after his desperate brother. That’ll be an interesting scene to see, and we’ll definitely get that from this show before the season is over.
The show has received negative reviews so far, but the show has been running smoothly in spite of all the outside noise. Hopefully the show can finish strong and next week’s season finale can end on a high note.
