Did You Know?


While on the phone with Pepper Potts, Maria Hill asks "Who or what is a Man-Thing?" This is a reference to the The Marvel comic monster, originally Dr. Ted Sallis, whose attempt at a Super Soldier Serum turned him into the titular Man-Thing, a vegetable based swamp monster. Sallis also worked with a Dr. Barbara "Bobbi" Morse, also known as "Mockingbird." See more »


Agent Coulson refers to Colonel Talbot's team as "Special Forces." In the U.S. military, Special Forces refers ONLY to Army special operations troops. The Air Force uses the term "Special Tactics." A S.H.I.E.L.D. agent should know this. See more »


Grant Ward: Maria Hill. I kind of hoped you went down with the Triskelion.
Maria Hill: And I kind of hoped you weren't the duplicitous lowlife you turned out to be, but here we are.

I need a cocktail and a lobotomy
1 August 2017 | by jhudson-11704See all my reviews

Shield brings back a fan favorite this episode, Smulder's Maria Hill. She helps out the team the best she can to defeat Ward and get Skye back, and that sort of works out.

The rest of the team finds out that Ward is Hydra this episode and it got some unexpected reactions, especially Fitz who freaked out the most. I'm glad they learned quickly too because now they are up to speed on basically everything. Coulson going to save Skye on the bus was pretty fun, especially their escape in Lola.

Hill was great this episode too, especially her big hint to Man- Thing, cause they can make a great movie with that. She had a pretty big role this episode as she brought the US military and Talbot to the secret base, still sporting a terrible fake mustache. I liked how she helped Coulson out of that situation too and that he told Coulson that taking down Ward and Garrett isn't official, it's revenge.

It was also huge to reveal that Coulson was behind Tahiti, as shown by the video that May found. This raises huge questions as to why Coulson wanted it shut down, and why it wasn't, most likely to keep the blue alien alive.

I have to say that Deathlok still looks really bad. I like Richard's Mike Peterson a lot but he just looks terrible.

+ Maria Hill! + Team finds out about Ward + Coulson gets Skye and Lola + Coulson in charge of Tahiti? - Deathlok's look and Talbot's stache

Final Score: 9.2/10
