Previously on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. on ABC:
We were reunited with the team just a few days after Coulson’s capture as they were in pursuit of a guy named Vanchat, who they hoped could help find their leader. After returning to the bus with Vanchat, Agent Hand promptly kicked Skye off and Skye promptly followed her own leads to search for Coulson.
I really liked Skye’s story in this episode. She proved her intelligence and her use to the team. And I definitely got a good chuckle from her impersonation of May. She brought some much needed levity to an otherwise dark episode.
Meanwhile, the mystery surrounding Coulson’s death is unraveling. What I really wanted to know was whether or not this Coulson is the same one that we’d gotten to know in the movies. The episode didn’t answer all of the questions about his resurrection, but it did answer that one.
This isn’t a clone and this isn’t a Life Model Decoy. This is Agent Phil Coulson of S.H.I.E.L.D. who underwent multiple procedures that were both very risky and very shady.
My next question is the same as Agent Hand’s — Why is Coulson worth all the trouble to bring him back to life? Does Fury just like him that much or is there something deeper?
The last revelation of the episode is that Mike has survived the explosion but our unknown antagonist has replaced one of his eyes with the eye camera/bomb that we’ve seen already.
That’s a lot to build on and I look forward to seeing what happens.

When we left the team before the hiatus Coulson had been captured and we don’t know what happened to Mike in the explosion. The official synopsis is: “’The Magical Place’ will have Coulson uncovering some very important details surrounding the mystery of his death.

Last weeks episode was my favorite thus far. I’ve enjoyed all of the episodes, but I think the way they told this story is exactly what the show had been missing. Let’s recap, shall we? Previously, on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Floating bodies begin popping up,… Read More »Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD Episode 7 preview – The Hub
It’s been two weeks so let’s do a quick recap: When we last left our heroes, Skye had basically destroyed all of the trust that she’d gained from her teammates. We also found out that she wants to infiltrate S.H.I.E.L.D. Because she wants to find… Read More »Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. episode six preview – FZZT
Thor: The Dark World opened overseas this weekend to $45.3 million. That’s a good sign. Marvel announced that there will be a special 5 minute preview of Captain America: Winter Soldier for the 3-D showings of The Dark World. I realize that this is a… Read More »Marvel News Roundup
The team heads back to L.A. when one of the super-humans that they’ve been monitoring goes missing. Turns out, Chan Ho Yin, a.k.a. Scorch, has been enticed by an offer to boost his powers by Raina, a.k.a. the girl in the flower dress.
Raina is working with the same doctor who we saw in the pilot episode. They are looking for something that will counteract the explosive effects from the EXTREMIS part of their project Centipede and they think that Scortch’s pyrokinetic abilities will be the answer.
While this is the case, neither Chan nor the doctor live long enough to see their efforts come to fruition. Chan is injected with the EXTREMIS serum by May and explodes while the doctor is killed by Raina who, it turns out is working for someone else. We meet him at the end of the episode when he and Raina discuss bringing in the “Clairvoyant.”
So, what is the team up to besides trying to stop Scorch and Raina? Well, Skye’s continuing relationship with the Rising Tide comes to a head and almost costs her her position on the team. It does cost her the trust that she had earned from her teammates, but she finally opens up to Coulson and reveals her true intentions.
Previously, on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D:
The team went to Peru to figure out what the 0-8-4 is.
On the way, Skye begins questioning her place on the team, as do some of her teammates.
In Peru they find the object in question. We then get our first glimpse of Coulson’s backstory in the form of Camilla Reyes, who he had a past relationship with.
A fire fight with local rebels forces both Coulson’s team and Reyes’ team back on the bus (their name for the plane) and in the air. Fitz-Simmons discovers that the 0-8-4 is a weapon that is fueled the same way the Tesseract is.
At the same time, Coulson and Ward discover that Reyes and her team aren’t as friendly as they seem. They knock out May, capture the rest of team and take over the bus.
Coulson is with his old flame, but the others are tied up in the cargo bay. As a team, they break free and save Coulson and the bus.
The episode ends with a great cameo from Samuel L. Jackson.
