Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD “Who We Really Are” Recap

JAIMIE ALEXANDER

This weeks episode did a great job of relieving some of the dark tone that the season has taken while still moving the overall story forward. We start by seeing Lady Sif, the Asgardian Warrior, wash up on shore with no memory. She doesn’t know who she is or why she is on Midgard; conveniently though, she does remember everything that she was taught as a child which will come in handy later. S.H.I.E.L.D. is called in and the team fly down to help. Sif is trying to find someone named “Kava” but when they figure out that the person their looking for is a Kree she realizes that “Kava” is not a person but the Kree word for “key.”

They find the place where Whitehall discovered the Diviner and capture the Kree, whose name is Vin-Tak. Vin-Tak is able to restore Sif’s memories with the same weapon he used to take them and they all have a heated discussion back at S.H.I.E.L.D. Apparently, the Teregensis was created by the Kree for the purpose of creating new soliders to fight in their war. It was largely a failure, except on Earth. Vin-Tak recently saw that one of the Dinviners was activated and has come to destroy it and the person who was changed.

The team assumes that he’s just talking about Raina, but the conversation got Skye worked up enough that she causes another small earthquake, revealing her change to everyone. Sif wants to take her back to Asgard where she will be safe and so will everyone else and Vin-Tak wants to destroy her. May tries to hide Skye and give her an impromptu lesson in controlling her emotions, but Sif finds them and Skye ends up taking May’s Icer and knocking herself out with it. Bobbi fights Vin-Tak and ends up using his memory weapon against him. Skye’s self-sacrifice convinces Sif to leave them alone for now and she takes the Kree back instead.Read More »Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD “Who We Really Are” Recap

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

marvel-shield-ladysif04

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
