Things are moving pretty quickly on Agents of SHIELD these days. Last week seemingly dealt with the Lash problem for the time being, only for it to pop back up again this week. We got the truth about Rosalind and the ATCU, more of Ward’s plan for HYDRA, and some new clues to Powers Boothe’s Gideon, all tied together with a new threat to SHIELD and humanity. Oh, and perhaps the most important FitzSimmons moment yet! Things are building rapidly towards the midseason finale (just two more episodes!), so let’s get right into “Many Heads, One Tale” written by Jed Whedon and DJ Doyle and directed by Garry A. Brown.
Agents of SHIELD has really ratcheted up the excitement lately. Last week gave us a big “surprise” twist, and this week we saw the fallout from that revelation. And while I may have seen the previous twist coming, I was not at all prepared for the final scene of this week’s episode, which changed everything. Combine that with some superpowered action, more emotional developments for FitzSimmons, and finally some answers on Lash and his motivations, and I think it’s safe to say that SHIELD is really hitting its stride this season. So let’s find out all about what happened to Andrew in “Chaos Theory” written by Lauren LeFranc and directed by David Solomon.
This week on Agents of SHIELD we got some new revelations, major confrontations, and even a possible death, all set up by last week’s “step forward” episode. This episode had a bit of everything, from Inhumans and the ATCU to the reappearance of Lash, to Hunter and May’s quest to stop Ward, to Simmons’ recovery and secret mission. We also have a couple of new mysteries to keep us guessing in the coming weeks! SHIELD is moving along at a pretty quick pace this season, but I think we’re still a little in the dark as to where the season is ultimately heading. But let’s see what we can discover in this week’s SHIELD, “Devils You Know,” written by Paul Zbyszewski and directed by Ron Underwood.
