Fight On - Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. 'One of Us' Review
The latest episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was billed as something of a big episode, the first ever team of 'super villains' in the Marvel Cinematic Universe coming together to bring down Coulson and the team.
As it turns out there was actually very little super to the team. It seemed like Cal grabbed the first four people from the gifted index rather than try and gather a group that could actually do some serious damage. Other than Angar, whose scream could incapacitate anyone around him, there were very few people who could be a believable threat against agents such as Coulson, Melina May and Bobby.
Instead the main focus of the show this week seemed to be Skye and her entry into the gifted index. Joined by guest star Blair Underwood as the former Mr Melinda May we had some great insights into not only Skye, but a little of the past of everyone's favourite hard arse agent May.
This episode was clearly not the event they were billing it to be, but rather a stepping stone to the point where Skye can become a super powered S.H.I.E.L.D. agent and get to use her quake powers on some bad guys. It's not going to be an easy process, if she gained her powers one week and became 'Quake' the week after it would have felt very cheap. I hope that we get to see her using her powers effectively soon, but even if it takes the rest of the season I'm sure the show will do it well.
We also got some answers to one of the show's mysteries this episode, with Mac revealing to Hunter that he and Bobbi are working for 'the real S.H.I.E.L.D.' and that they are planning on bringing Coulson and his operation down.
Despite having been told who they are working for we are left with even more questions. Who is this other S.H.I.E.L.D.? Why are they trying to stop Coulson? Who is in command of the 'real' S.H.I.E.L.D.? Guess we'll just have to wait to find out.
