According to ABC, tonight’s all new episode of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is the “most explosive, game changing episode of the season”. That’s quite the praise for an hour of TV. However Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has turned a corner in the last few weeks since returning from a Winter Olympic hiatus. The early episodes of the show were clunky and slow. They played out like live action G.I. Joe cartoons.
Every week saw tons of bullets, laser, and karate kicks, but few if any casualties. Often entire episodes were built around the imminent death of someone on the team. Simmons is about to die this week followed by Skye nearly dying the next. The show lost a lot of its tension in those early episode. Since the revelation about Coulson’s Tahiti trip the show has improved each week.
This week’s episode, titled Turn, Turn, Turn, is rumored to fully connect the Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. world with the Marvel movie franchises. The events tonight happen after the actions in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Coulson has to work with guest star Bill Paxton, who really has the perfect S.H.I.E.L.D. voice, on rooting out a traitor in their midst.
Here’s the synopsis for tonight’s episode.
Coulson and his team find themselves without anyone they can trust, only to discover that they are trapped with a traitor in their midst.
The promo is chock full of action, and questions. Who is Agent May communicating with in secret? Maybe we can find out tonight.
