So last night’s episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. saw the team coming face to face with the question ‘Is telekinesis real?’ as they deal with the fallout from an explosion where a young girl is being blamed for the accident and is displaying telekinetic abilities.
The episode opens straight after the last one ended, with Agents Ward (Brett Dalton) and May (Ming-Na Wen) together in May’s room when they are called in to action to investigate the strange goings on.
Upon investigating, it becomes apparent that the situation could escalate unless action is taken, and May does just that with a tranquillizer she shoots at the young girl.
The episode features the ever brilliant double act of Fitz (Iain De Caestecker) and Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge) and builds on the heart of Skye (Chloe Bennet) and further solidifies Clark Gregg’s Agent Coulson as a firm fan favorite, he’s great and there’s better understanding of why he wanted May on “The Bus” by delving into her back story, specifically why she’s called ‘The Cavalry’.
A large chunk of the episode takes place on “The Bus” after Simmons works out what is really going on and who the perpetrator really is.
The effects and story are great and the series is definitely building to something.
I won’t give everything away but the episode is great fun, and if scheduled a month earlier, it would’ve fit in rather well with the Halloween period.
All in all, I like Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., I like how it fits in with the already established Cinematic Universe, with its nods to Thor, Captain America and the like.
This episode had definite links to Thor: The Dark World, as did the previous episode.
