“Chaos Theory” picks up where things left off last time for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. – with the revelation of who the Inhuman mystery Lash really is.

Doctor Garner (Blair Underwood) is the Inhuman in question, and what he’s been up to since the transformation comes to light for May. <continue reading>

“Among Us Hide…” picks up things after the interlude of the previous episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., with a whole lot going on.

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. “4,722 Hours” (2015.10.27) – In Review

“4,722 Hours” is a first for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., in that it tells its story mainly as a flashback this time out, and that most of the cast is absent for this episode. Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge) and Fitz (Iain De Caestecker) are the only regular cast members appearing this time out (aside from a video clip on a mobile). And aside from one guest character, Will Daniels (Dillon Casey), the only other guest characters are fleeting figures. <continue reading>

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. “Devils You Know” (2015.10.20) – In Review

“Devils You Know” is an apt term for the latest episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., as the series deals with a familiar antagonist for the team. Grant Ward (Brett Dalton), the one time member of the team who’s gotten ambitious and has decided to rebuild Hydra with himself in charge, has proven to be a thorn in the side for Coulson (Clark Gregg) and his team, all of whom would like to see him dead, in a very painful way. <continue reading>

“A Wanted (Inhum)man” carries on where things left off with Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. as the agents deal with threats from multiple angles, played out in three different storylines. Lincoln (Luke Mitchell) is the focus of things, as both Coulson’s team and the ACTU are seeking him out in this episode. Coulson (Clark Gregg) finds himself in a bit of an ethical dilemma this time out between reaching his goal and looking out for one of his own, and where things end up find us at something of a diplomatic solution. <continue reading>

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. “Purpose in the Machine” (2015.10.06) – In Review

“Purpose in the Machine” picks up where the previous episode left off. The storyline takes different characters in different directions. Part of that is an answer to where May (Ming-Na Wen) has been- she’s taken a leave of absence and is spending time with her recovering father, trying to figure out where her life is headed. Her father, a cantankerous but wise man, seems to understand her better than she understands herself. <continue reading>

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. “Laws of Nature” (2015.09.29) – In Review

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns for season three with the new episode “Laws of Nature”. It starts off with a bang – a new Inhuman, Joey Gutierrez (Juan Pablo Raba) finding his powers out of control, and potentially lethal – he can melt metal. One group is seeking him out in with their own purposes – the Advanced Threat Containment Unit (ACTU) – while the team safely extract him and take him to safety. There’s another player in the mix though, one who has an agenda of his own. <continue reading>
