Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Preview 1-13: T.R.A.C.K.S.


Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns to ABC tonight with a new episode and here’s hoping that, despite taking a short break, they can maintain the momentum that the previous two episodes have been building.

Tonight’s episode finds the team undercover on a train in Italy as they continue their search for Centipede (though, by the looks of the video clip they’ve released, that cover gets blown quickly). We’ll also get to see what Mike Peterson can do now as Deathlok (and whether he is still a good guy or not).

And, the Generalissimo himself, Stan Lee will make his debut on the show in what he calls “a big role” which I am pretty excited about.

There seems to be a lot of things jammed into this episode: action, humor, new characters, cameos but, if the previous episodes are indicative of what’s to come, I can’t wait to watch it. They have also promised us a “series changing” ending, but let’s be honest, that kind of build up is mostly white noise at this point. It may, in fact, be series changing, but that kind of language is being used by most of T.V. these days, so I usually take it with a grain of salt.

  1. I’m prejudging since I haven’t seen it yet but this seems to be exactly what’s wrong with this show. Shield is a gigantic organization of the top tier specialists for their fields. So AoS would make a lot more sense to have a rotating team that fits the mission rather than a team of 6 where untrained agents are sent into scenarios that don’t cater to their skill sets. In this case, we’ve got one agent trained in espionage yet EVERYONE goes on the mission like its a field trip and can potentially screw up everything with their lack of experience?

  2. What a great episode! I commented on last week’s post my opinion that the show needed to feel a more cohesive part of the MCU. I think this ep went there. I can’t wait to see the next one…

    Which brings on the RAGE!!! Another month!?!? Are you serious?!?! If they hate the show so badly, I wish they’d just cancel it already!
    To make myself feel better, I watched my own extra bonus ending in my mind – Coulson and May walk of the set, down a halfway and into the office of an ABC exec. They close the door behind them, and we hear the sounds of obvious violence, then breaking glass. We’re moved to an exterior shot of a suit-clad exec thrown from a window, the a zoom-in to the window, where Clark Gregg breaks the fourth wall and says “See you next week!”
    Yeah…. such a great episode…
