Good episode but not that Avengers either
1 June 2019 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

That's only the third episode I see from the second season and this scheme is rather more espionage than anything else. You'll tell me that AVENGERS series is genuinely espionage and not sci-fi or mystery...And you'll be damn right. But this story is intersting, well done, though far from being the closest to AVENGERS spirit or weird and bizarre stuff. A vengeance tale and tight enough to glue your attention to the screen.
