Ms Marvel Episode 3 Recap: Who is Najma, Kamran’s mother?
Ms. Marvel Episode 3 begins with a flashback scene. The year is 1942, and in British-occupied India, we find Najma and her team in an ancient temple looking for something.
Instead, they find the bangle on a severed hand. Najma and her team also need a second bangle but cannot find it.
Najma says that the British have already pillaged the temple, and there is little chance of finding the second bangle.
So, this is when Kamala’s great grandmother Aisha makes an appearance and says they will only have to make do with one bangle.
Aisha wears the bangle and feels the cosmic energy. The British soldiers attack them, and they have to flee.
In the present timeline, we find that Najma had been telling this story to Kamala. Najma says that she and her team have been looking for Aisha since then.
Finally, Najma befriends Kamala and tells her they, including Aisha, are from another dimension, the Noor dimension, where they have been exiled.
Najma adds that the bangle unlocks the “noor”, or the divine light and could be the key to their home. She asks for Kamala’s help in going home. Najma says they have been given many names, including the Clandestine and the Djinns.
Kamala later asks Bruno to learn more about the inter-dimensional journey and the Djinns.
After doing his research, Bruno tells her that making a hole in the timeline involves great danger and requires tremendous energy, equivalent to the sun’s energy. Bruno also tells her about his admission to Caltech.
Kamala texts Kamran that she needs more time to work it all out, to which he replies that she should concentrate on her brother’s wedding ceremony. His mother is furious at him for this casual approach and says she doesn’t have the time.
The Department of Damage Control agents storms into the mosque, enquiring about the masked girl.
Nakia, the prospective board member (the counting of votes was going on), reminds them that as per the constitution, they can’t barge into a religious place without a search warrant, prompting them to leave.
Nakia talks about this incident to Kamala. She also jubilantly announces that she has been elected as the board member of the mosque.
Aamir and Tyesha’s henna ceremony occurs when Bruno leaves a box for Kamala. She finds that the box contains a superhero mask.
