S.H.I.E.L.D. Exposed: “Bouncing Back”
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. bounces back with more Inhumans than you can shake a stick at!
It’s been a while, huh? We had another season of Agent Carter in the meantime and that was… something. I’ll be honest, I gave up on it. But SHIELD’s back so let’s get into it!
Right out of the gate, the show pulls the same shit that Arrow’s doing with a teasing flashforward to the seeming death of someone we know. More interesting to me is the fact that a Quinjet can make it into orbit. No speculation right now because it’s obvious who they want you to think it is.
Back with the team, the Secret Warriors are on the case as Daisy and Joey go to liaise with the Federales while Mack gets his ass kidnapped by a tiny lady. Joey’s still kinda bland but it’s good to see his evolution as an agent.
In Camp FitzSimmons, things are pretty awkward since Fitz killed the meat puppet that used to be Will but Simmons finally can’t take it anymore and demands they start over and see where it goes. Yaaaaay… Square One. Haven’t seen you in a while.
Introduced this week is Elena “Yo-Yo” Rodrigues aka the comic book hero Slingshot. I instantly love her. She’s bubbly and feisty and her power set is cool and Mack likes her and fuck, why isn’t she on the cast permanently? I can’t wait to see her again!
Ward, or what used to be Ward, spends the better part of the episode in a bathrobe, eating meat and watching TV. Our villain, ladies and gentlemen! He’s supposed to be called Hive now and we get a sense of why as a swarm of skin cells leaves his hand to presumably infect Malick’s Inhuman henchman.
Overall, a cool return for the show and I hope it keeps up the momentum going forward as next week we see the return of General Talbot and the revelation of a traitor in The Inside Man.
