When they land in Karachi, Kamala and her mom are greeted by Sana. After some brief catching up and family banter, Kamala and her mother get a taxi to Nani’s home. On their ride, Kamala enjoys the dazzling night views of the city.
After arriving at Sana’s home, Kamala explores the spacious estate. In a quiet moment, Kamala finally speaks with Sana about the bangle while also learning about her heritage. All that Sana can reveal is that the vision of the train is important and will eventually be revealed if she seeks to solve the mystery.
Kamala has a dream that night of the train. She awakens to her family stressing how its important to visit and catch up with everyone. Muneeba especially stresses this point as she did not come all the way to Pakistan to stay at Sana’s house.
Muneeba brings Kamala out to a restaurant where they meet up with other family members. Kamala has some awkward exchanges where Muneeba once more embarrasses her. Kamala tries to ignore it but finds herself accidentally eating food much too spicy for her liking.

She tries to convince her local family to give her a tour to show her the train station. Unable to convince them, she asks for directions from a local merchant.
Kamala Fights An Assassin But Meets A Ally
Kamala arrives at the train station looking for clues relating to her vision. While there, she puts on her mask to hide her identity after noticing the surveillance cameras. While looking at some graffiti, Kamala is attacked by a masked assassin with red masks and daggers.
Kamala fights off the assassin while he questions her true identity. After some battle banter, the attacker mistakes Kamala for a Clandestine. Realizing she’s not one of them, he decides to help her instead as they flee the station from the local police.
The masked individual, revealing his name is Kareem (Aramis Knight), takes Kamala to a secret room at a local restaurant, revealing himself to be a part of a group known as the Red Daggers. He leads her through the decadent halls of their underground base of operations. He then takes off his mask as Kamala removes her own disguise as well.
Kamala then meets the Red Dagger leader in Ms. Marvel episode 4, Waleed (Farhan Akhtar), who gives her lunch while speaking about their organization. He stresses that they’re committed to protecting humanity from unseen forces such as the Djinn. He also reveals everything he knows about the Clandestine and how they exist on top of our own dimension.
With an elaborate display, he gives Kamala a peek at Aisha’s homeworld, learning of the Veil of Noor that separates us from them. If the bangle is acquired by the Clandestine, they could shatter that veil and take more power. It is for this reason that the bangle must be hidden.

Back in Pakistan in Ms. Marvel episode 4, Kamala talks with Sana who reveals more of her history and how their culture has become distorted over the years.

As night falls, Kamala hangs with Kareem and the other Red Daggers, choosing her cool name among the group as “sloth girl.” She eats with them around a campfire. She’s reluctant to eat the food, fearing it’s spicy, but still tries it.
Back at Sana’s home, Muneeba starts cleaning up after Sana and questioning what she keeps in her home. Trying to be a good guest and daughter, Muneeba insists on giving her mother a foot massage. Sana doesn’t enjoy it.
Muneeba then approaches the question of asking if Sana wants to come back with her to America. Sana snickers at why Muneeba would want that after she so wanted to get away from her. Muneeba then unloads that her frustrations were with the neighborhood and her mother’s wild stories, stressing how she never felt like she had a mom.

With Kamala, Kareem, and Waleed splitting up, Kamala hijacks a truck to escape. She manages to hit a Clandestine during her pursuit. Kareem then catches up with her and they continue running through alleys.
