Happy Thursday everyone! I apologize for not getting this out sooner! As those who follow DRE on Twitter know, my internet was not working long enough for me to watch this episode last night. However, things are now back in order so I bring you my review for this week’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
This week’s episode was based around three main things. Hunter and May trying to find their way into Hydra, Lincoln on the run, and Fitz and Simmons relationship after the ordeal of Simmons being thought dead for a while. Hunter proved in this episode that he is wiling to go to great lengths to get to Ward and find someway to kill him once and for all. He has to fight his way to a meeting with one of the Hydra crew and does so by killing someone who he previously thought was his friend. May seems pretty shocked that Hunter is willing to go to such extremes so it will be interesting to see how she reacts to him as time goes on and he delves deeper and deeper into Hydra.
Lincoln is still on the run from Rosalind’s team and finally accepts the help of Daisy and the others when he accidentally murders his only friend. Daisy rushes in to the fray to help Lincoln and the two share a moment when Lincoln explains that he thinks he is a terrible person after the things he has done in the recent past. Daisy seems willing to help him, despite this, just like he helped her last season. However, Coulson is forced into making a deal with Rosalind to give Lincoln up in exchange for Rosalind not spreading pictures around that show Daisy using her inhuman powers when she was confronted in the hospital a few episodes back. Lincoln does not seem too keen on the idea of being taken and runs away. Rosalind’s team is just about to take Daisy in when Coulson offers his help in exchange for her silence.
Meanwhile, Fitz is trying his hardest to help Simmons cope with being back in this world. She still seems to be having trouble feeling comfortable in her current surroundings, which would be understandable after such an ordeal, and every buzz of a cell phone causes her to jump. In order to try to make her feel more at peace, Fitz brings her to a restaurant and here Simmons finally has the break down that she needs. By the end of the episode, Simmons tells Bobbi that she has to go back to the other world.
Despite the fairly simplistic plot of this episode, I enjoyed it. It is hard to imagine Hunter being able to kill someone as he usually appears as the jokester of the group. I guess that just proves how dark some people can get when it comes to getting revenge. I will say that I am getting a little tired of Coulson always feeling like, or feeling like he has to, step up and save Daisy from the things going on around her. It’d be nice to see Daisy step up even more than she already has and not get herself into such compromising situations. What I am most curious about, though, is what happens to Lincoln from here on out. He is running away from Rosalind’s team still, now no longer has S.H.I.E.L.D. to count on, and seemed pretty down on himself to begin with. I will be curious to see what lengths Daisy goes to try to find Lincoln and bring him back to her side.
