Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. recap – 2×14: Love in the Time of Hydra

aos 2

This week’s episode was full of revelations and putting are characters where they need to be for the rest of the season.

The main storyline followed Ward and Agent 33. The episode begins with them at a diner. We think they’re going to rob it, but they’re actually looking for the person who can fix the mask on 33’s face. He is able to fix the broken part, but is unable to take the mask off. Throughout the episode you can tell that Agent 33 has developed feelings for Ward, especially when she uses her mask to look like Skye in an attempt to seduce him. Ward picks up on it as well and uses it to his advantage.

Together, they infiltrate the place where Bakshi is being held and break him out. But they don’t want to free him. Ward wants 33 to get her revenge on Bakshi by making him go under the compliance program himself. Of course, that’s just what Ward said. I’m still convinced that he has some other plan up his sleeve.

Meanwhile, Coulson and his team are still trying to figure out what to do with Skye. Andrew’s recommendation last episode was for her to leave S.H.I.E.L.D. but Coulson doesn’t want to do that just yet. Instead, he and Skye head out to one of Fury’s safe houses. There she will be able to rest, relax and maybe begin to get a grip on her powers. She is given a pair of gloves, designed by Simmons, that should help repress her powers, but with some mysterious side effects.Read More »Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. recap – 2×14: Love in the Time of Hydra

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Preview – episode 15: Yes Men

Last week, the team went on mission to find a way to save Skye’s life. Led by Coulson and Ward’s former S.O., John Garrett, they find the Guest House, where Coulson was during his questionable resurrection process.

They find a substance called GH-325 that was used on Coulson that allowed his cells to begin regenerating. As the team rushes back to give it to Skye, our favorite S.H.I.E.L.D. agent delves deeper into the Guest House and discovers a room labeled T.A.H.I.T.I. (because, apparently, someone really wanted their initials to spell “Tahiti”). In the room, Coulson finds a large container labeled “GH” that contains the top half of a human-like form where the GH formulas are being pumped from.

Speculation is all over the internet as to what that thing was, my favorite theory is that it is a Kree, an alien race that could open up a world of storytelling possibilities including a tie in to Guardians of the Galaxy.

Coulson tries to stop his team from injecting Skye with the mystery liquid but doesn’t make it in time. After a momentary seizure, Skye seems to have stabilized and is a little farther away from the edge of danger.Read More »Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Preview – episode 15: Yes Men

New Marvel The Avengers Clips

Could this be the least exciting superhero movie poster ever?

Two new TV spots and a clip from the movie are here to pump you up about the new Marvel The Avengers movie. The first clip shows a bit of what Loki’s army looks like, the second TV clip reveals the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier and a clip from the movie shows the Black Widow as she gets called in from a mission.

Otherworldly enough for you?

Nice. Does that Helicarrier remind anyone else of a similar ship from Doctor Who?

Below the cut is the Black Widow clip and a new series of posters for The Avengers. The one above of Agent Coulson is actually a bit of a joke released for the actor’s 50th birthday.
