Clark Gregg as Director Coulson and Ming-Na Wen as Melinda May In “Marvel’s Agents of Shield”
On this weeks Agents of shield a Church by the name of the Santa Maria De Las Flores has burned down in a bizarre incident and the only thing left intact is a painting worth more than the church itself. Unbeknownst to the priest of the church the painting is 500 years old, but contains new alien scripture Coulson has been drawing all season.
Coulson (Clark Gregg) and Melinda May (Ming-NA Wen) with the help of Skye (Chloe Bennet), Lance Hunter (Nick Blood), and Antoine Triplett (BJ Britt). Attend the benefit as a married couple where said painting is being held to do a quick snatch and grab. Along the way they run into General Talbot (Adrian Pasdar), Talbot is not himself and is drinking quite heavily.
Meanwhile back at the playground an imposter impersonates May and sabotages the bus. Fitz (lain DeCaestecker) still talking to a non-existent Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge), jumps to save the day, but has issues communicating the problem to Mac (Henry Simmons). Lance decides it’s his turn to help Fitz with the issue.
Coulson and May then fight their way out of the benefit, as Talbot wasn’t whom he said he was and was being impersonated by a sleeper Hydra agent. May also encounters her double along the way. Both assailants were using the masks like Romanov did in The Winter Soldier.
Fitz and Hunter stop the bus from self-destructing and the guys congratulate him with beer and ask him to open up about himself. Which feels out of place as he unveils to the rest of the team how he feels about Simmons. Coulson Tells May that his symptoms are getting worse, he fears he is becoming the next John Garret and tells May she must make his hard decision for him and that many more are to follow it.
Raina (Ruth Negga) is approached by Daniel Whitehall (Reed Diamond) and told that if she doesn’t return the obelisk to him within 48 hours. He will killer her with the device he attached to her wrist.
This is definitely an off week for agents of shield as it managed to keep the pacing up, but still not provide any real answers to several questions. What’s going on with Simmons? How’s the undercover Hydra gig going? What’s Hydra’s endgame? What does Raina want with the obelisk?
