Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D is back this week and the opening episode of this half of the season was a pretty decent one! Everyone is coming to terms with the death of Tripp and what that entails for the team and everyone in it. Coulson is bound and determined to get Hydra back for their part in the Tripp’s death and is more than willing to use any means necessary in order to get the revenge he craves. Everyone else is still figuring things out on their own by drowning themselves in their work.
Skye and Raina are the two main players besides Coulson in this episode and it was interesting to see how what happened in the city has affected them. They are each taking their transition the same way, but have completely different support systems with which to deal with them. While it seems like they are both utterly terrified and unsure of where to proceed with their new “gifts”, while Skye has the entire team looking out for her, Raina is left to deal with things along. The episode shows how big of a positive it is that the team is willing to support Skye. Overall, this week’s episode was a nice, albeit a bit boring, transition back in the world of S.H.I.E.L.D. and I am curious to see what happens next week!
