Man, what an episode this week! Definitely one of the best of the season. Surprise guests and multiple twists abound, so let’s get to it.
Skye has been taken to a haven for people like her (a.k.a. Inhumans) where she meets Lincoln, who helps transition her body into her new powers and gives us more information about the mythology that surrounds the Inhumans. Most people who are at the haven, what they call Afterlife, have not been through Teregenesis, so they don’t have powers, just the potential for them. There is a long process that everyone goes through and a long line of people waiting to go through it. Skye has, essentially, cut to the front of the line so many of them give her strange looks.
Though originally told that Raina and Cal are not at Afterlife, Skye eventually discovers that they are and goes to confront Raina. The two meet and a fight almost ensues, but it is broken up by the woman who has decided to become Skye’s trainer. Who is this woman? Skye’s mom. You know, the lady who Whitehall dissected earlier this season and we saw her in pieces? Somehow, she’s come back and she has the scars to prove it. But that’s not the only surprise guest this week.
Meanwhile, Coulson and Hunter are still on the run. They end up at the safe house where they kept Skye and Coulson feels out of options. With only bad options left, he makes two calls. One alerting Gonzales to their location and one calling for back up. I assumed his back up was May, but I was so wrong. His goal is obtaining a Quinjet.Read More »Recap Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. – Afterlife
