This week’s Agents of Shield episode entitled “Heavy is the Head” was definitely a step up as far as I am concerned, from last week’s episode. This one had much more action and it feels as though the show is trying to get somewhere quickly instead of just doing the simple build up to the big finish of last season. This episode tackled more about the dreaded item #084 that basically destroys the lives of everyone it touches. It has fallen into Hydra’s hands and is up to Shield to get it back. I do not want to give up too much for those who have not seen it yet, but I want to say that I appreciated the pacing much more in this episode.
This whole episode has a focus of who is working with whom and how it affects the rest of the organizations. Hydra, the government, and Shield are all kind of at odds at this point and it will be interesting to see exactly how these groups end up clashing or teaming up in the future. I am curious to see how the inclusion of Raina back into the mix will affect things and who exactly she is working with as well. On top of that, it was nice to see that Agent Hunter was not the simply money-hungry mercenary that he came off as in the first episode.
If there is one thing I can say is that I am really craving a big fight scene. There has been a lot of gun play and things like that so far but I just want to see Agent May take down about 50 guys at once just because she can. Hopefully sometime soon we can see a good scene like in the last few episodes of last season. Agents of Shield is on ABC at 9pm/8pm central time.
