S.H.I.E.L.D. Exposed: “Many Heads, One Tale”
One heart, many feels.
Damn, that was an intense episode. The pace was almost unrelenting as we charged through Many Heads, One Tale. The episode is thick with drama, intrigue, emotion and they even found time for a few gags.
Man, I’m so glad Rosalind isn’t HYDRA. Her and Coulson are pretty fun to watch and I’d hate for it to go away so soon after getting it.
The secret origin of HYDRA is a tad convoluted for my tastes (seriously, who gets an octopus from a ram’s head?) but Grant Ward made up for it by being the most charming killer on screen, as usual. Seriously, that handsome bastard needs to die, especially after what he said to Andrew. Dick move, Ward! Dick move.
I always wondered why there were noticeable chunks missing out of the monolith and they finally explain it. Some
mad cunt brave soul carved out portions which were kept by HYDRA. There’s what… six or seven of things? Enough to make a portal I’d wager!
There’s a great sense of the team acting as one in this episode, mainly because everyone is in on the plan to infiltrate the ATCU but it’s Hunter and Bobbi who get the lion’s share of the spy fun. Bobbi’s new escrima are pretty dope, obviously inspired my Thor and Mjolnir. Bobbi can certainly need the edge going up against a new Inhuman foe.
Giyera is one of the ATCU agents turned into an Inhuman and appears to have some sort of magnetic ability/telekinesis. I don’t think he speaks at all, which is weird. Apparently he’s going to be the new head of SHIELD security, according to news articles so I wonder how that’ll go. Gotta give big-ups to Mark Dacascos though. Some might know him from the likes of Mortal Kombat and The Crow but to me, he’s best known for starring in the 2009 adaptation of Kamen Rider Ryuki; Kamen Rider Dragon Knight!
FINALLY! Three damn seasons we’ve waited and oh boy was it emotionally devastating! FitzSimmons finally have it out, both admitting that neither of them are happy with this situation for a whole slew of reasons but in a fit of anger and love, Fitz finally does what he’s wanted to do since Simmons came back. It’s the most powerful scene the show has had in a while but god damn it was worth it. It’s powerful and you really feel for these poor kids, trapped in an impossible situation.
Many Heads, One Tale is the winner out of SHIELD and Flash this week. Not by much but enough to make the winner clear. This episode just had so much pay-off while still building interest for the rest of the season. Be sure to come back next week for Closure.
