Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. produces another great episode in “A Fractured House”


In the midst of Marvel’s huge news on Tuesday, let’s not forget that we also got our weekly dose of Coulson and his team.

This week, a group of men claiming to be S.H.I.E.L.D. crash a U.N. meeting, killing some of the dignitaries and security guards with new versions of the diviner weapon. Because the attackers claimed to be S.H.I.E.L.D. agents, the U.S. government has to step in, including Senator Christian Ward, brother of Grant Ward.

Senator Ward wants nothing more than to see the remaining remnant of S.H.I.E.L.D. be disbanded permanently and will stop at nothing to see it done. Coulson arranges a meeting with the Senator and makes a deal with him. He will turn the Senator’s brother over in exchange for not bringing down S.H.I.E.L.D. Skye goes down to the basement to tell Ward the news, but gets him to tell her everything he knows about her father first.

In the meantime, Agents May, Hunter and Morse are sent out to find the men responsible for the attack on the U.N. and the new diviner weapon. Watching Hunter and Morse bicker was almost as fun as watching May and Morse take down the bad guys.


The episode also deals with the reunion of Fitz-Simmons and the realization that Fitz gets worse around Simmons. I am really impressed with Iain De Caestecker’s portyal of Fitz. He continues to be the heart of the show for me.

The tag at the end of the episode reveals another person who is being haunted by the mysterious writings and has chosen to make them tattoos all over his body.

All in all, another great episode. I continue to look forward to Tuesday nights. Of course, this week we got an extra treat with a scene from the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron which you can check out here.

We also got our first promo for Agent Carter.

Next week, instead of a new episode, ABC is airing a special called, “Marvel 75 Years: From Pulp to Pop.” Emily Van Camp (“Revenge” and “Captain America: Winter Soldier”) will be hosting the hour long trip through the history of Marvel and will include more footage of the new Avengers movie.

It’s a great time to be a Marvel fan.
