From Left Ming-Na Wen as Melinda may, Henry Simmons as Mac, Nick Blood as Lance Hunter, and Chloe Bennet as Skye in “Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD”
This week on Marvel’s Agents of Shield Director Coulson (Clark Gregg) and Team ran into an old friend by the name of Donnie Gill (Dylan Minnette). Gill first appeared in the freshman episode “seeds” in which the Skye (Chloe Bennet), Ward (Brett Dalton), and Fitzsimmons (lain De Caestecker and Elizabeth Henstridge) were dropped off to deal with a situation at Shield academy. Meanwhile Coulson and May (Ming-Na Wen) dealt with another conflict concerning that of Skye’s Lineage. A subplot that will be answered within a few episodes as Kyle MacLauchlan’s Mysteriously dangerous “the doctor” appeared in last week’s final tease.
Struck by lighting holding onto a deadly device of his own creations; Donnie Gill is believed to be a threat for Hydra that is if he can’t be recruited by them. Gill like Xmen’s Bobby Drake/ Iceman, fancies a cool name and decides to go with Blizzard. However, things are complicated as Jemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge) is working with Hydra undercover for SHIELD. After heavily armed guards escort her to her superiors office for what they call a security breach. Simmons successfully convinces Kenneth Turgeon (Adam Kulbersh) that she is loyal to Hydra, but she must first prove that loyalty by convincing Gill that Hydra is the team to work for.
Meanwhile Daniel Whitehall (Reed Diamond) is trying hard to brainwash SHIELD Special forces Agent 33 (Maya Stojan) to lean about more about SHIELD and use her against them. Which there was mention of her capture in The Playground’s situation room, but no time was made to at least attempt to rescue her. While agents Skye, May, Hunter, and Triplett made sure Simmons’s cover was kept intact.
Fitz (lain De Caestecker) continued to make progress communicating with the help of Mac (Henry Simmons) as he yet again proved that he’s still the same old Fitz, just working with a disadvantage. One Coulson sees him slowly overcoming.
Three episodes in it’s a safe bet to say that Agents of SHIELD has fully returned and has continued to keep the fast forward moving storytelling that was so pertinent to its first season climax. Which ultimately won the fans over, but the problem is we know who the villain is and what appears to be his endgame, destroy SHIELD at all costs. Whereas in season one the mystery was trying to discover whom the villain truly was in the first place.
