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

s2e7-aos

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

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