Agents of Shield returned last night with a bang as the show not only featured Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) fighting Hydra and capturing the first ever 0-8-4 (An object of Unknown origin) it didn’t hesitate to answer questions, while raising new ones.
Director Coulson (Clark Gregg) is busy putting S.HI.E.L.D. back together from the Playground as well as trying to capture items that may have hit the black market after the raid on the fridge in season one. Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen) has taken Skye (Chloe Bennett) under her wing and has made her a part of the team in a big way. Coulson also has her searching for any images related to the one he and John Garrett (Bill Paxton) drew after taking GH 325, the miracle drug that brought him back to life and the one responsible for saving Skye. The season two premiere was information heavy and introduced new characters like Nick Blood’s Lance Hunter and Lucy Lawless’s Isabelle Hartley.
It also clearly established the villain this season as Daniel Whitehall (Reed Diamond) a high-ranking Hydra officer that took over once Captain America had dealt with Johann Schmidt AKA the Red Skull. Diamond was almost unrecognizable and utilized an excellent German accent.
General Talbott (Adrian Pasdar) was given a promotion to Brigadier General for raiding Providence as well as “Crushing” Hydra. Talbott has proven to be nothing more than a thorn in Coulson’s side if anything. While Coulson’s new team searched for objects of importance to SHIELD. Hayley Atwell’s Peggy Carter will no doubt get fully fleshed out as the season two expands with each week and more importantly during Agents inevitable hiatus on the upcoming Agent Carter.
Agents of Shield was clearly the funnest thing you could watch last night as CBS rolled out its spin-off NCIS: New Orleans and NBC had The Voice. Both TV shows in their on their way out as NCIS New Orleans is the new CSI Miami and The Voice enters its 6th season.
