Agents of SHIELD Brand New Day

A “Brand New Day” Before The End Of Agents Of SHIELD

All season, the Agents of SHIELD have been at a pretty significant disadvantage. Sybil the Predictor, a Chronicom that can see all of time and it’s infinite variances, has been informing those working against SHIELD what they’ll do. Sure, they’ve had moments that Sybil didn’t notice, but for the most part, the conclusion was known before the start. Of course, our team will never get up despite the odds are moving increasingly toward them losing everything.

A Familiar Face “Stolen” From Us Returns To “SHIELD”

As it turns out, Jiaying wasn’t even what Malick and friends were after. They were looking to grab Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge), presumably to try to find Fitz (Iain De Caestecker). Ah, Fitz, who’s has an entire season stolen from him. Granted it’s behind the scenes reasons (De Caestecker has another acting job) why we have yet to see Fitz, but that doesn’t make it any less disappointing. ‘SHIELD’ is practically the story of how Fitz and Simmons reunite, though, just as it’s become a story of how Coulson will die. We know it will happen, and we hope it’s been worth the wait.

“As I Have Always Been” Fascinated With Time Travel

Daisy (Chloe Bennet) is our lucky looper. The Zephyr has made its way into a time storm and can’t get out. Each loop brings it closer and closer to demise. The only people who can fix the situation are Enoch (Joel Stoffer) and Jemma (Elizabeth Henstridge). They have it hard-wired not to help so as not to give away Fitz’s location though. Meanwhile, Coulson (Clark Gregg) can retain his memory and coaches Daisy on how to get closer to solving the problem.

Adapt Or Die Isn’t A Warning You Should Give The “Agents of SHIELD”

After a discussion with Sybil the Predictor (Tamara Taylor) that is more about Coulson’s speech than learning much, Coulson blows up the Chronicom hunter forms that were about to be awakened. Good news for the team, but we also apparently lose Coulson in the explosion. We did have a whole long conversation about him being able to come back from the dead, so I don’t think he’s gone, but it still makes for a good midseason rattle ’em up. Adapt or die indeed.

Agents of SHIELD – The Sign And New Life Review

The ending of ‘New Life,’ the second part of the ‘Agents of SHIELD’ season conclusion almost explains the rushed feeling of the season finale this year.  It’s almost as if the writers just wanted to hurry and finish the Shrike threads so they could get to what will be fully revealed in season 7.  Not a bad […]

Agents Of SHIELD – Leap Review

Ok, I know it’s my own fault.  I often watch ‘Agents of SHIELD’ and promptly forget the details of each episode, not to mention entire seasons.  That is part of what makes watching things like ‘Doctor Who’ fun – I’m not really hung up on the continuity, so when things don’t line up it doesn’t bother me […]

Collision Course Part Two Closes Out The First Half of Agents of SHIELD But Leaves More Intriguing Questions

I’ve said it before with this show and it shines through again in ‘Collision Course Part Two’: SHIELD works best when the whole team is together.  Separate them off across the universe and something just feels off.  So when the team does reunite by the midseason conclusion (well, this episode would have served that purpose if […]

The Agents Are On A Collision Course As The Shrike Storyline Comes Together

Reviewing part one of a two-part episode always feels a bit empty.  Questions that are raised will undoubtedly be answered in part two, and the reactions you have might be unjustified by then.  And of course, while the episode is probably action packed – you do have to get viewers back for part two – […]

‘Toldja’ Reveals The Threat Of This Season Of SHIELD

Sarge, the Phil Coulson look-alike who is all cold and hard and killy, further revealed himself not to be the threat of this season of ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D’ in ‘Toldja’.  One might question why he couldn’t help the team with their Shrike problem earlier, but he does help rescue May and Yo-Yo who were trapped on the […]
