Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD Recap – One Door Closes

one door closes 1

This week we went back to the events of Captain America: Winter Soldier to see what Bobbi, Mack and their team were doing the day that S.H.I.E.L.D. fell. They, along with Agent Hartley, are on the air craft carrier, Iliad, in search of Gonzales. It was nice to see Lucy Lawless again. I’m glad they brought her back.

After finding him (and convincing him that they aren’t Hydra), Bobbi reveals that she was given a second mission from Fury (like Natasha in Winter Soldier). She’s been tasked with sinking the ship, destroying the cargo in the process. Realizing that this is a one-way mission, Mack and the rest of the team decide to join her before ultimately deciding to take back the ship instead of destroying it.

Back in the present, Coulson finally lets Mack take a look under Lola’s hood, but for the purpose of confronting him because Coulson suspects him to be a mole. Through the conversation, Coulson figures out that Bobbi is a mole as well. This revelation leads to a fantastic fight scene between May and Bobbi over Fury’s Toolbox.

Bobbi loses to May, but not before she uses an EMP to shut down S.H.I.E.L.D.’s power.Read More »Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD Recap – One Door Closes

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

ADRIANNE PALICKI, BRIAN TEE

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”
