Since this is my first post on a TV show that’s already midway through season 3, I’ll just briefly explain my love for Agents of Shield (AOS)
Ever since Marvel made the announcement that Marvel was going to bring their characters to the small screen, I couldn’t be more excited! When the first episode aired, I was content with what they were going to bring. An already established character from the movies, Phil Coulson, leading his own team of avengers sound really thrilling to me. I must admit that it was a slow start for the first 15 episodes, but as soon as the agents learned of Hydra within Shield, everything changed. Since then, every episode was exciting to see. I loved how they incorporate little cameos by Nick Fury in season 1. Introducing inhumans in the 2nd season was even better! Anyhow, lets get to the review…
The winter finale had me guessing before I even watched it. Will Ward trap Coulson and Fitz on the planet? Will “Death” come through the portal and lead Hydra? My head was thinking of different scenarios on how this could all play out. After all, Marvel loves to mess with our minds.
First of all, let me say that I knew that Will was the monster all along. Ever since Jemma escaped and Will was left behind, I had a hunch that Will wasn’t going to escape the wrath of “death” after being stranded on that planet for all those years. Now that Will is out of the picture, could this mean that FitzSimmons might be able to move on? Who knows.
I was on my heels when I saw the fight between Ward and Coulson ensued. With the portal of them in the background and those two fighting, I was thinking “Don’t leave Coulson behind!…but please, leave Ward there” It was pretty awesome seeing Coulson get the upperhand and finally giving the final blow to the evil leader of Hydra, Grant Ward. Coulson was right giving the status of Director of Shield to Mack. He really had to cross some lines that directors wouldn’t do to Grant Ward. But, the death of Ward, probably one of the happiest scenes I’ve seen in AOS.
Now…the tag at the end. Ward…he’s alive. Yes, he’s dead but now he’s being controlled by Death and crossed over to Earth. Ughh. I’m sorry but Ward’s presence just gives me a headache. Now that he’s another being, it just makes it worse.
Thinking about when the show comes back in March, the team will have a lot on their plate. They all now have to deal with Mack and Ward and supposedly the rise of Hydra again. Also, Lash is free. I guarantee he will cause a lot of chaos and disruption within Team Coulson as well. Another thing I thought about is that once March hits, we have about 2 months left until Cap 3 and 12 episode left of season 3. Since AOS has done a nice job incorporating the movies into the shows (Cap 2, Thor 2, Avengers 2), the ending of season 3 will have some impact with our heroes facing each other. Next spring will be something I will not miss out on.
