Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Recap and Preview


This week, we got a lot of answers about Project TAHITI. Coulson goes back under Raina’s memory machine in order to find the answers so the team can stop a man who is killing those who are infected with the GH serum. He and his victims were test subjects in Project TAHITI but, though they seemed to be healing well with the serum, they quickly degenerated and became obsessed with the writings. Like a homing pigeon, they sought every means they could to find the meaning of the writings, which, for our villain of the week, meant killing.

Coulson and his team track him down and stop him, but in the process, Coulson realizes that the writings aren’t a map. They are blueprints for a city. Before we talk about the theories as to what the city could be, let’s talk about the other half of our team as they pursue Ward. I enjoyed seeing Ward in action again. We were definitely reminded why he was such a good agent as he stayed ahead of May and her team the whole time, even being able to figure out that Bobbi and Hunter were working with Coulson. I also liked seeing Tripp back in action. Having the weapons specialist that we grew to like last season stuck in the Playground while the big-mouthed newbie gets the action every episode is a little disappointing.

I am very interested in seeing how Ward’s story arc plays out.

Back to the mysterious city. Having Agents of SHIELD include the Inhumans is a theory that fans have been touting since last year. Many think that Skye is an Inhuman and that her dad is Maximus the Mad. Now that they have announced an Inhumans movie in 2018, I wouldn’t put it past them to start planting those seeds now.

What does this have to do with the mysterious city? We know that the blue creature is an alien and we’re presuming it to be Kree. Attlian is the home of the Inhumans. It’s location has changed over the years, everywhere from the Andes Mountains to the Moon. It’s also been found in the Himalayas – which is near where Skye was found as a baby.

The other possibility that I’ve seen that I like is that the city is K’un L’un, which is where Iron Fist was trained connecting this show to the upcoming Netflix series. Or Agents of SHIELD is going somewhere completely new; that’s not unusual for the MCU either.

What would you like the city to be?

In Episode 8 Coulson travels to Hawaii with a special mission for the team and we see the return of Agent Peggy Carter. Two preview clips available below:

Agent Carter continues to appear in flashback. Can’t wait for her own show in January. Meanwhile, tune in Tuesday, November 18 at 9:00 p.m. ET on ABC for the next episode of Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD.
