That’s it. That’s my review for this week’s episode.
Okay, not really, but Talbot was definitely the bright patch in this otherwise dark, upsetting episode. Hopefully he and his wife can make up. Edible arrangements seems like a good way to go, dude.
Anyway, Ward is back! Yay! And he’s with Agent 33, who apparently nursed him back to health after Skye shot him. They wreak various havoc together throughout the episode. First, Pulp Fiction style in a diner to get a techy guy to fix her May face mask, then on the military base to retrieve Bakshi. Agent 33 has some….issues to work out with him.
Ward seemed rather gleeful to discuss the issues he worked out with the whole, you know, murdering his family and burning their house down. Eep! And he’s clearly not afraid to take people out who get in his way or who could compromise his mission. Dammit, Ward, I just want you to be redeemed already. Seems like he is slipping further and further from that path.
Skye’s issues took a bit of a backseat this week, but they’re still pretty prevelant for our science twinz. Fitz and Jemma can’t stop arguing about her. Jemma claims she wants to help by subduing her powers, but Fitz believes that changing her is exactly what she tried to do to him. Fitz thinks Jemma just can’t accept these changes in people. It’s really painful and I fear that this ship has sailed for them.
You’re scared. That Skye and I changed. But you know what the scariest change is Jemma? It’s you.”
Ouch. But true. Jemma, get your shit together. But at least she developed Quake’s gauntlets and that’s pretty awesome. So, in a way, she is also trying to help Skye learn to control her powers. Hopefully both Skye and Fitz can recognize this and they can all go back to being friends? Please?
In order to help her do this, Coulson took Skye to one of Fury’s safehouses: a cabin in the woods. We’ve all seen the movie, we know how this ends, ha. He mentioned that Steve Rogers spent some time there, which is a cool sidenote. But my poor homegirl is gonna be lonely.
The biggest story this episode was this other SHIELD, run by Admiral Adama. Apparently a lot of people are prejudiced against Coulson because he has alien DNA. (Seems to be a theme the past couple weeks! Civil War, man.) Sure, he made some questionable choices because of it, but the theme of fate played a huge part in this, tying Skye and Coulson together from the beginning. That none of this was an accident. That doesn’t matter to these folks though since it seems like Bobbi, Mack, and the other “SHIELD” are planning a great big coup d’é tat. NOT COOL, GUYS.
Hunter is not about this and fights off a bunch of “SHIELD” dudes and steals one of their jets to escape. I think it’s hilarious that he managed to escape a submarine. Good on you, mate.
Hopefully he gets to them in time….but eep! Everything is scary!
- “Fitz really wants a dog.”
“I thought he wanted a monkey.”
“Guess he readjusted his expectations.”
- Skye and Coulson sharing Twizzlers! (This is significant to my congoing friends, heehee.)
- I lol’d when that one guy told Adama to throw Hunter “in the brig.” Heh.
- May’s voice coming out of Skye’s face was a bit unsettling.
- “If there is an Avenger equivalent [to Skye], I’m afraid it’s the Hulk.”
“Well, Hulk saved the world last I checked.”
- PUMPKIN PANCAKES!
- TACO TUESDAY!
