Previously on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. on ABC:
We were reunited with the team just a few days after Coulson’s capture as they were in pursuit of a guy named Vanchat, who they hoped could help find their leader. After returning to the bus with Vanchat, Agent Hand promptly kicked Skye off and Skye promptly followed her own leads to search for Coulson.
I really liked Skye’s story in this episode. She proved her intelligence and her use to the team. And I definitely got a good chuckle from her impersonation of May. She brought some much needed levity to an otherwise dark episode.
Meanwhile, the mystery surrounding Coulson’s death is unraveling. What I really wanted to know was whether or not this Coulson is the same one that we’d gotten to know in the movies. The episode didn’t answer all of the questions about his resurrection, but it did answer that one.
This isn’t a clone and this isn’t a Life Model Decoy. This is Agent Phil Coulson of S.H.I.E.L.D. who underwent multiple procedures that were both very risky and very shady.
My next question is the same as Agent Hand’s — Why is Coulson worth all the trouble to bring him back to life? Does Fury just like him that much or is there something deeper?
The last revelation of the episode is that Mike has survived the explosion but our unknown antagonist has replaced one of his eyes with the eye camera/bomb that we’ve seen already.
That’s a lot to build on and I look forward to seeing what happens.
Now on to tonight’s show:
We end up at S.H.I.E.L.D. academy to see the introduction of the new villain, Blizzard, while May and Coulson go looking for answers to Skye’s surprising past.
I’m definitely interested in seeing what they find. And I always look forward to seeing super humans on the show – even the villainous ones.
Here’s a little clip to get you excited for tonight’s episode:
I like how the stories are beginning to come together. What about you?
