REVIEW: Secret Invasion – Season 1, Episode 5, “Harvest”

“Harvest” is the point in a story where you kind of just want it to end. I enjoyed most of Secret Invasion in the beginning, but this episode makes it clear that the setup is not going to have a satisfying payoff. There are too many story strands to tie up in a week, too …
