Review – Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. “Emancipation”

Hello everyone! Megan_Highwind here. The episode starts with Coulson sitting in a bar watching the tv while the news explains the events of Captain America: Civil War and the Sokovia Accords. While the news is explaining what happened, Talbot walks in and lets Coulson know that the Inhumans all need to be registered according to the Accords.


In an abandoned mall, Daisy allows her blood to be drawn in order to help Hive create more Inhumans. Once her blood has been taken, Daisy breaks into the feed at the S.H.I.E.L.D. complex to get a hold of Lincoln and make sure that he is doing alright and to try to once again convince him the he should join her with Hive. Lincoln seems hesitant to the offer, but agrees to consider it. While Lincoln and Daisy chat about the future, James and Hive “recruit” members of the Watchdogs by tricking them into an alley and overtaking them.

Coulson gives Talbot access to the entire S.H.I.E.L.D. facility including Lash and the other Inhumans. Talbot wants to put Lash under ice, but Coulson and May disagree with the decision claiming that Lash could one day be an asset to the team. During a chat with Fitz and Simmons, it is revealed that Hive has everything that he needs to create his own army on Inhumans with the use of Daisy’s blood. Meanwhile, Dr. Radcliffe has created more Inhuman type creatures he calls Abominations with the praising eye of Hive looking on.

During Talbot’s visit, Daisy tries to break Lincoln out of the compound by taking over some of the cameras and use of the Quinjet. Unbeknownst to anyone besides Coulson, May, and Lincoln, the person who escaped on the Quinjet was not actually Lincoln, but instead Lash whom they send to try to rid the world of Hive and save Daisy. Lincoln reveals that as much as he wanted to trust Daisy, he knew better than to do so.

Lash and Hive have an epic battle where Lash is able to blast a hole in Hive’s chest.  Daisy tries to take down Lash for Hive, but as she is still weak from the blood draw, fails. Lash then walks over to Daisy and removes Hive’s influence from Daisy. Lash carries Daisy to the Quinjet so the two can escape, but James hits Lash through the chest with his fire chain. Daisy uses her powers against James and the abominations and is able to escape.


Things are getting more and more intense as we reach next week’s finale. Now that Daisy is back and can give the group more information on Hive, hopefully the group will have an easier time dispatching him. Catch next week’s season finale on ABC on Tuesday at 9/8c!

Megan_Highwind has left the party.
