S.H.I.E.L.D. Exposed: “A Wanted (Inhu)man”
Way to kill the character limitation on Twitter for me, episode.
Three episodes in and I’m already looking forward to reviewing The Flash more than SHIELD. It’s not that the product is bad or gets on my nipples (Looking at you, Doctor Who) it’s kinda just… There. Plodding along the same path that we kinda had last season.
The B Plot of Hunter and May gunning for Ward was a fun distraction from the A Plot, both for subtitling two drunk British guys, because you silly colonials just don’t get English and May looking like the hottest Alt Girl ever despite being 50 years old. DANG.
Lola’s new boyfriend makes an appearance! If that’s not a sign that Rosalind and Coulson will be teaming up/knocking boots than I don’t know what is. For real though, SHIELD acting as an advisor to the ATCU makes me think that we will see SWORD eventually and if Rosalind reveals her real name to be Abigail Brand, I’ll be a happy man.
Lincoln’s had a rough time recently and it just gets worse. Losing his job, being hunted not only by the ATCU, SHIELD and Lash and now accidentally giving his only friend a heart attack… Shit’s rough. There’s indication of a darker past to Lincoln and I’m not sure I like that. I like Luke Mitchell as an actor and I especially like him when he’s light and fluffy. His super-serious storylines in Home & Away and Tomorrow People were fun to watch, sure, but he’s just got the face of a lovable scamp not a dark, brooding victim of circumstance.
FitzSimmons begin to deal with the fallout of Simmons’ return and while their scenes are short and few, they straddle the line between adorably cute and just tragic. Their constant hand-holding, Fitz keeping the reservation from their date months ago and Jemma’s readjustment to Earth taking it’s toll on her are all fantastic little scenes. These kids might just get their happy en–
“I have to go back.”
…Oh no. No, no, no. That’s not good. That’s not good at all… Is this a result of her PTSD and a sign that she’s really not coping or did something happen or did she discover something GAH! What a kick in the quad…
A solid episode but nothing outstanding so we’ll see if it picks up next week with Devils You Know.
