☆AoS 3×11: The Inside Man☆

late but still greatttt :-/

 

Coulson and Talbot heading to the UN meeting
(link1)
(link2)

Coulson and Talbot went on a mission to figure out who was the inside man at a UN meeting. Coulson/Talbot is totally a crack ship, but totally believable. After some drama, and Talbot making guesses on who it was, the meeting started. It seemed like Coulson was doing okay, but then Talbot turns and starts attacking Coulson’s ideas, and making Coulson seem like a bad guy. Things go south, and Coulson realizes Talbot is the inside man. Turns out, though, Talbot’s only working for Gideon Malick because Gideon has his son hostage. Coulson and Talbot end up locked in a cell, but then Creel rescues them — making Coulson realize that Talbot trusting Creel wasn’t so misguided.

 

 

Hive dripping with honey-looking goop

(link2)

Hive was so fking creepy in this episode omg. Or like in any episode tbh. Ew ew ew. Like, at one point in the episode, he consumes like 5 people, and ends up covered in a honey-like glaze. Seriously, he makes me nauseous. It did turn out that he’s getting a more healed, less corpse-y body, so that’s a plus.

 

 

Gif of Lincoln and Daisy making out
(link1)
(link2)

Lincoln / Daisy in this ep tho?? Hot as hell but somewhat problematic. They’re sparring at one point, and Daisy ends up on top of him, They’re totally, all pumped, ya know. But then Jemma comes in, she needs Lincoln for something, ruining them moment. Daisy and Lincoln get into a bit of a fight, but make up. As they make up, Lincoln says something about how he doesn’t feel in control of his powers, not like Daisy is, anyway. Daisy responds with something along the lines of ” Sometimes it’s good not to be in control. ” and takes off her shirt. Now, yeah, I ship them. And, yeah, it was kind of hot. However, I’m not quite sure it was the best thing for the moment. Not that Lincoln didn’t want sex, because there was obvious sexual tension in the episode. However, with the way he’d been feeling, maybe watching a movie with his head in Daisy’s lap while she ran her fingers through his hair, would’ve been a better idea. Or at least Daisy should’ve asked him if that’s what he wanted before just taking her shirt off. But that’s just my opinion.

Bobbi/Hunter. I’m dying. The two of them are with May at a point, and turns out Hunter snuck their weapons in. He opens a tray to reveal weapons, including Bobbi’s batons. To which she replies, “I love you.” May adds, “I don’t hate you quite as much” (or something like that) It’s a hilarious moment, really. But the way Bobbi says it so surely, kills me. Like, it’s a random moment, not one that particularly calls for a declaration of love, but she throws it in casually and meaningfully and aGH. Tonight’s episode is supposed to be Bobbi/Hunter centric, but also a tear-jerker, so… YIKES FAM.

 

till later,

☆AoS 3×09: Closure☆

i’m late, and I forgot what happened in this episode, so this’ll surely be an interesting review.

 

Rosalind
(link1)
(link2)

S0. Oh my god. Rosalind was shot in the throat and killed. Tbh, I was never a huge fan of Rosalind. Still, she was a female character, so it sucks that she died. Sure, there’s other females. But, I mean– Izzy, Kara, Jiaying, and now Rosalind go on the list of strong females that deserved more of a plot. Anyway, Ward shot her (from an incredibly far distance, I might add) with a sniper, killing her. Just when it seemed Coulson had found someone he liked, and who liked him. Coulson becomes hellbent on revenge, and Coulson and Ward continue to anger each other, resulting in both of them throwing their phones angrily.

 

 

Simmons looking at Fitz

(link1)

(link2)

Fitz and Simmons got captured again 😦 It was very a very sad scene– Ward had Simmons tortured in another room, and made Fitz listen to her screams. Simmons was shown being extremely brave, and not backing down to Ward. She’s really such a great character, and her story and development is enthralling to watch. Eventually, Ward forces Fitz to go into the portal, or else Ward will kill Simmons. Simmons asks Fitz not to go, but he does. They say a few sad parting lines, and go. Ward goes in the portal with them.

 

Thomas Ward
(link1)
(link2)

In this episode we were introduced to an older Thomas Ward. And, can I just say that I love him? I love how Bobbi seemed like a big sister to him– I already stan that relationship(as friends/sibling dynamic, not romantic) and he just seems like a nice, fluffy, cutie. Coulson, Bobbi, and Hunter, capture him and use him to track Ward down. They see that Ward goes into the portal. Then, Coulson jumps into the portal at the last second from the plane– he falls onto the planet and hits his head on a rock.

 

Also, Mack was standing in for director, and it seems May, Mack, and Daisy, along with Lincoln and Joey, will be going to the scene as well. Tonight’s episode is the midseason finale, which i’m pretty scared for. Don’t worry though, Agent Carter comes back mid-January, and maybe I’ll post some other stuff between them. Fingers crossed my faves survive tonight!

 

later,

☆AoS 3×05: 4,722 Hours☆

Simmons on alien planet
(link1)
(link2)

YES. IM LATE AGAIN. I KNOW. anywayyyyyyyyyyyyy. So this episode was almost entirely focused on Jemma’s life on the alien planet– some parts were awesome, but sometimes it felt like it was kind of dragging on. We got to see how kickass Jemma is– although keep in mind she was always kickass, this just in a different way. She attacked a sea monster and said “You’re dinner, biatch!” which was awesome. She was proud of her burp– again, awesome. She missed Fitz a lot, saying goodnight to him which was sweet. We could also see how the planet aggravated her, how she screamed for the sun, and how sometimes she was filled with despair. Later on, she falls into a trap. There she meets Will Daniels– and astronaut who has been on the planet for 14 years. At first he doesn’t think she is even real, but he learns that she is and they form a friendship. This friendship turns into a romance. With Will’s help, she manages to find Fitz and get back home– but Will is still left behind. She tells Fitz this story, and Fitz says he’ll help her get Will back.

Now, Will was controversial, at least on Twitter. Some Fitzsimmons fans hated him, and said that he was ruining Jemma’s stand-alone episode and minimizing her PTSD. I’m a strong Will supporter, and I also ship him with Jemma. But it doesn’t matter which ship side you’re on– Will hasn’t done anything wrong. He hadn’t seen anyone for presumably years, and why do ppl hate him? Because he fell in love? Oh my god, this guy fell in love, he’s a horrible person! Oh my god, the girl misses him, he’s ruining everything! Wow, he helped her, so that shows she can’t be cool on her own. She cried over him not just the trauma– she must not have PTSD. It’s all bullcrap.

The promo for tonight’s episode looks intense. Bobbi is back in the field, and in trouble– I’m scared for that. Anyway, I’ll try to post sooner this time, but who knows.

later,

☆AoS 3×03: A Wanted (Inhu)Man☆

hello! guess who, again, is super late to this posting party? this girllll *points at self*

fitz and simmons holding hands
(link1)
(link2)

Fitzsimmons. But mostly Simmons. Okay so Elizabeth Hendstridge’s acting in the ep was to die for. I mean, it was hella. Like wow girl, slay. So Fitzsimmons was great too, Fitz holding Simmons’s hand and overall cuteness. And so Simmons was having a panic/ptsd attack with all the bright lights and noise… poor baby. And, obviously, I haven’t went through what she has. But I have started panicking before, and Liz did a great job of portraying that. At one point, Daisy comes to visit Simmons– it’s a cute scene, Daisy telling Simmons she can call her whatever she wants, and bringing her flowers. Then Fitz takes her out to eat– turns out he’s kept the reservation for all these months, and he’s even emptied out the restaurant so it won’t freak her out. It’s super sweet, and throughout their conversation you can see the obvious attachment they have to each other. Then she starts sobbing, and he’s there beside her and 💔 Ouch, my heart. And although I ship Fitzsimmons to the moon and back, I think that needs to be set aside for a moment, while we worry about Simmons’s well-being. At the end of the episode, she’s back in the lab that freaked her out earlier– Bobbi comes in and tells her there’s no way it’ll ever reopen, trying to soothe her. But Simmons jerks away, saying: “I have to go back.” So that’s pretty intense and we’re not quite sure what’s going on there. Hopefully more of it will be explored tonight and in the future.

may and hunter in a bar
(link1)
(link2)

May and Hunter went undercover to try to find Ward and stuff. At one point when Hunter was talking to another guy trying to get info, they put subtitles on screen– I actually liked that, because for some reason it takes a lot of effort for me to figure out what they are saying, but there was some drama about that on Twitter. And Hunter was fighting someone, and he got super bloodied and bruised up. It was pretty intense. May got hugged and acted super weird about it, which was hilarious. And she kicked butt so it was all good. I don’t really remember the end of what happened with them, but I think they were talking to some HYDRA people about Hunter meeting Ward.

Rosalind looking at Coulson
(link1)
(link2)

Rosalind and Coulson had a talk. I thought it was funny when Coulson was looking at her car and she said that her eyes were up there lol. But yeah it was okay, they were arguing about the mission going on with Daisy and Lincoln and Mack and stuff. I still don’t really like Rosalind. Anyway, at the end they decided they were going to work together, which sucks. I’d much rather the ATCU be SHIELD’s main enemy, rather than HYDRA. Of course, that may have to do with the hatred I have for Ward. But whatever.

Lincoln and Daisy, faces close.
(link1)
(link2)

So Lincoln in this episode was awesome. I mean, he’s always awesome but ya know. He was running away from the ATCU. Turns out SHIELD had stuck a tracker into him– he learned that when Daisy was calling him, trying to help him. He takes the tracker out– also taking off his shirt 😍 ANYWAY. So he gets the help of John, an old friend of his. And it turns out Lincoln is/was an alcoholic and suicidal. 💔 John is nice and lets Lincoln sleep, and is there for him. But then he sees Lincoln on the news, and gets out a metal bat to attack him. Lincoln zaps the bat, but then John has what appears to be a heart attack. Lincoln tries to zap him back to life, but it doesn’t work 😢. So Daisy comes to Lincoln and says she’ll help him as he helped her, and they kiss 💏. Tbh, I don’t think they should’ve kissed yet, I think they should’ve led up to it more and stuff. Anyway. So Lincoln says he’ll go with her, but then Mack and the ATCU and drama. In the end, Rosalind and Coulson make a deal, and the ATCU takes Lincoln. Aw.

Last but not least, my fave, Bobbi. She calls Hunter and talks to him when he’s on the mission and stuff. Near the end of the episode, she is seen overworking herself. She’s mad that she can’t go in the field, that she can’t go with Hunter or help him. So she works out, pushing herself past her limit because she knows she can do better. She punches a punching bag through the pain, and her facade breaks as she punches and punches and punches. But then she goes to talk to Simmons, facade back in place, and she’s sweet and caring and 💔💔💔

Tonight’s episode has Ginger Inhuman, so we’ll have to see where that goes.

Until then,

☆AoS 3×02: Purpose in the Machine☆

hello guys! again, i’m late to the party. ughhhh i don’t know why i always put off posting. anyway! let’s talk about the episode.

 

 

 

(link1)

(link2)

First, let’s talk about May. So in this episode, we saw May living a normal life– playing tennis, with her dad. And I have to say, it was quite unnerving and not at all like the may we’ve come to know and love. So yeah… that was pretty weird. May was trying to live a normal life, but she still carried a gun and was always on the lookout. Hunter was on a mission to kill Ward, and he wanted May’s help. When he came to May’s house, her first reaction was to attack him. And after that, he tried to convince her to join him. She said she wouldn’t. He kept persuading, but it still seemed like she wouldn’t join. Then, at the end of the episode we see her readying her battle gear, with Hunter– so it looks like Ward is going down.

 

 

 

(link1)

(link2)

Speaking of Ward– In this episode, I have to say that I hated him in this episode. In this episode, he recruited Baron Von Strucker(a deceased HYDRA leader)’s son to help him and the new HYDRA. Now, that wouldn’t be so bad, expect for the way he did it. He had his second-in-command or whoever(the other guy in the picture) torture Alexander. Now, Alexander fought back and is joining HYDRA and all is “well”. But still. I hate Ward. Towards the end of the episode Alexander is meeting Andrew– which is worrisome, meaning he may try to kill Andrew or at the very least, learn some more about Coulson’s team.

 

 

(link1)

(link2)

There’s really not a whole lot to say about Bobbi in this episode… However, I feel I should always make a section dedicated to my favorite agent. There was some huntingbird/lancebob stuff in the episode, including a kiss(squee!) and we also got to see Big Sis Bobbi, helping comfort Fitz and and Daisy. I really enjoy the friendship between Bobbi and Fitz, especially since they’re also my two favorite characters. 💕

 

 

(link1)

(link2)

FITZSIMMONS WAS STRONG IN THIS EPISODE. So Fitz figured out a way to get Simmons back, which involved him going to the alien planet with a string tied around him while Daisy held the portal open with her powers. It was such an intense scene, and it seemed almost like they weren’t going to make it out, at least not both of them. At the same time Fitzsimmons is struggling, Daisy is struggling to keep the portal open, Bobbi and Mack are struggling to hold the thing with the string attached to Fitz, and Coulson is also struggling while deciding how long to wait. It’s super duper intense. Luckily, Fitzsimmons makes it out okay, as you can see in the adorable gif above. And at the end of the episode, Jemma wakes up with a nightmare, holding a shank and ready to attack. She realizes it was just a dream and goes over to Fitz and rests her head on his knee. And it is adorable and also sad because POOR BABY JEMMA 💔 I mean, she’s been on the alien planet for like six months and she’s obviously affected and scarred.

 

 

(linc1)

(linc2 [didn’t work, sorry.] )

 

This coming episode shows Lincoln on the run. Which is sad, because Lincoln is my child and needs to be protected. The promo also showed what seemed to be an almost-kiss between Daisy and Lincoln. which is cool with me bc i totally ship them Anyway, I got a Twitter– which is giving me spoilers, aha. So yeah.. But it’s cool anyway to interact with more AoS fans.

 

Until Tuesday,

☆AoS 3×01: Laws of Nature☆

Yo! i’m back after like a 4 month hiatus so… yeah. i haven’t really had much to post about over the summer, but now that AoS has started back up, i’ll probably at least post about that. so, let’s get down to this episode!

(link1)

(link2)

First of all– Skye’s going by Daisy now! It seems to be a bit of a debate in the fandom. Some people prefer to call her Skye, while other’s accept Daisy. Coulson himself expressed how hard it was to get used to the change. However, I do think that she should be called Daisy if that’s what she wishes to be called. So that’s where I stand on that. Anyway, I am LOVING Daisy’s new haircut! It’s super cute on her!! Plus, she was helping Joey out in this episode– Joey is the new Inhuman they are “watching over” right now– and it’s great to see how much she cares about helping the other Inhumans. Sure, at the beginning of the episode things were a little rocky with Joey, and trying to convince him that what they are doing is right– but by the end it seems Daisy and Joey are on their way to a tentative friendship.

(link1)

(link2)

Now, let’s talk about Lincoln, Lash, and Rosalind. First of all, Lincoln is amazing. and i ship him with Daisy but that’s not the point (i also accidentally put Skye there and then changed it. it might take a little getting used to). Let me just say that. I loved how he stood up to Mack. It is a bit strange though, how he just wants to live a “normal” life now. Previously, he was a huge advocate for the Inhumans, so it’s a pretty startling change. I’m hoping we will see some of the reasoning behind his choice later in the season. Now, we only caught a glimpse of Lash this episode– but dang, he’s weird. Not quite creepy, but still. He’s strange. We don’t really know much about him yet, but hopefully that will be explained later. Why is Rosalind grouped in this section? you may ask. Well, that’s because I saw on a blog (agents-of-frickle-frackle.tumblr.com) something about how Lincoln and Rosalind have the same last name. I don’t really have feeling one way or another towards her yet. I mean she’s obviously in an origination opposing SHIELD– but who knows.

(link1)

(link2)

Next– Bobbi my wife(and also Hunter). There wasn’t a ton of these two in this episode so this’ll be short. But Bobbi is my fave okay. And Hunter not talking to Bobbi at the start made me angsty af. But then he wanted to marry her 😭❤️ so yeah. But Bobbi not being able to do stuff and feeling bad about it kind of killed me a little bit. And Bobbi wearing Simmons’s lab glasses was bomb and also sad. And Bobbi and Fitz best buds ftw!!

(link1)

(link2)

TWO WORDS. FITZ. SIMMONS. Okay so Fitz was being a BAMF and slaying those bad guys w that flash grenade things like CHILD. Plus fetus!fitz with his cute face and adorable hair has grown into BADASS EMOTIONAL MAN FITZ WHO IS HELLA HOT. 😍😍😍 But when Coulson was telling Fitz to let go and stuff and Fitz was getting teary eyed– i may have gotten close to tears. And then that pounding on the rock. Oh my god emotions. And at the end we see Simmons in an alternate universe and IS SIMMONS OKAY? it’s been a few months that she’s been in there right, and she’s running from something and !!!!! I just want her to be okay! It seems that Fitzsimmons always run into more trouble.

Alright– so Coulson was missing a hand and being kind of whiny about it. May was gone but will be returning in tonights episode, along with that Asgardian guy from a previous episode. Well, I’m pumped for tonight, and hopefully I’ll post my review a bit sooner this time!

avengersfangirl

☆AoS 2×20 + 2×21: S.O.S pts 1 + 2☆

HOLY SHIZBALONI. SO MUCH. SO MANY FEELS.

I am a mess, so this post will not be ordered or anything, this’ll just be me spitting out my random thoughts. Nice 😎

bobbi tied up

(link1)

(link2)

OMG HUNTINGBIRD??? AND JUST BOBBI IN GENERAL. MY LOVE, MY WIFE, THE JOY IN MY LIFE. HOLY– Hm ok. I gotta phrase this a little better. Bobbi is one of my absolute faves in the history of ever, and this episode made me love her so much more. So she’s scared of needles(same here) and Ward sticking needles into her fingers was gross as heck. I was hoping Hunter and May would come save her, but she tried to save herself first. And she did a badass job at trying. But when she was in the chair and they were saying whoever came into  the room next would die… 💔 Well, when she started moving around in the chair, I knew she was trying to put herself in the line of fire. Tbh, I thought she’d die by doing that. When she was almost dead and Lance was so… agh my heart. The end of the episode left with a “I can’t do this anymore” by Bobbi and what does that mean? She can’t do the relationship, I guess. Actually, it probably means working for SHIELD. After thinking about that while I brushed my teeth I was thinking maybe she meant she couldn’t keep living anymore… And, voila! I’ll be writing depressing fanfic about that soon 😉

jiaying

(link1)

(link2)

JIAYING THOUGH???? GAH I HATE HER. I can’t believe she killed Raina? I didn’t love Raina, but she was a very interesting character. She had finally learned to love her new form, and accept her powers– and then Jiaying killed her. 😢 And then at the end of the episode she tried to kill Skye, I just,, that was too far. I mean, yeah Skye had turned against her,,, but trying to kill Skye was rude. And she staged the whole attack, she made Skye believe that SHIELD was attacking Afterlife, and she made all the Inhumans believe that SHIELD was attacking, when really it was just part of her plan. Ugh. I’m not mad that she died, to say the least.

cal with vials

(link1)

(link2)

It was sad that Cal killed her. It was nice of him though, so that Skye wouldn’t have to go through that pain, but still. Killing your own wife has gotta be really sucky. When he got that adrenaline shot and went crazy, well… that was creepy and weird. Apparently he’s Dr. Hyde in the comics, so I guess that has something to do with it. That was creepy though… At the end when he and Skye parted.. feelings. But then he went through the TAHITI program?? That was sad and depressing. I get that it was good in the big scheme of things,,, but it still sucked. Oh well, he seemed happy at least.

Simmons with teary eyes

(link1)

(link2)

FITZSIMMONS. Okay so when Fitz said “Science, beyotch.” was my favorite thing ever. ever. And Simmons realized that she cared about him in that way and they were so about to kiss or something but then Coulson had to interrupt and Simmons was crying and shooting me in the head would hurt less. Okay, maybe that was a hyperbole. But still. And at the very end, they were about to go on a date… and then. Okay so the episode ended great, everything was tied up, it was nice and good, and THEN. Really? Did Simmons have to be sucked in by that weird rock thing. Gah, why did Fitz accidentally open it? And we have to wait until Fall to find out what happened to her… 😓

kara, dying

(link1)

(link2)

And OH MY GOD Ward killed Kara?!?!?! wtf. And now apparently Ward is HYDRA again… but i cannot believe he killed Kara agh that sucks! Why did Kara have to die? And Ward is never going to forgive himself for killing her,,, agh. Kara said that killing Bobbi at one point didn’t feel right, and Kara was just a cool character and now she’s dead for Ward’s manpain? Ughhhhhhh.

mack

(link1)

(link2)

Mack is back! I liked him and Skye kicking butt together. And he chopped off Coulson’s arm was nice. I mean, maybe it was kind of crazy, but it was needed. I’m happy May and Skye seem to be friendly again. And May and Andrew… friendly might not be the right word. 😜 Lincoln saying that they weren’t bad, just misled was cool bro 😎 I loved the finale, but I’m mad about the cliffhanger ending.

Well, that’s all for now!

-avengersfangirl

☆AoS 2×20: Scars☆

Yo yo yo!

I’m too lazy to add pics to this post, sorry!

First– Mackkkkk. I had seen that his name was in the Guest Starring section, so I figured he might not be around very much, but I wish he hadn’t left SHIELD. Tbh, after he went down in the pit he’d been less likable, and he wasn’t bringing a whole lot to the team, but… Aw.

I love how there is just one SHIELD now. I’m happy SHIELD is at least getting along.

Jiaying is weird. Something had always seemed off about her, and now she killed Gonzales and made it seem like he had shot her. Now Skye is going to be against SHIELD, at least for now. Plus, Jiaying said that discovery requires experimentation. Whitehall always said that back in the day… Is Whitehall somehow controlling her, or her body? Or is she just more intense than we thought? Hm…

When Ward shot Bobbi in the head, I thought for a second that Bobbi was dead. That second was scary as hell. Bobbi is one of my absolute faves, and if she died, I’d… Well, I’d be hella mad. I understand that Kara is mad about what happened and how she was treated, but– Bobbi tried to be nice, and she mentioned how they had known each other before. But now Kara and Ward are the let’s get revenge couple. Ah well.

I loved how Simmons gave Skye the hula girl thing, and Fitz’s joke. Fitz/Simmons/Skye are one of my favorite friendships ever.

May is a better mother figure for Skye than Jiaying, imo.

And Bobbi is awe-freaking-some. She’s the one who questions why Kara is getting locked up, she’s the one who says Coulson is a good man… How could anyone not like Bobbi?

Next week is the two-hour, two-episode, season finale! It’s gonna be crazy, and I can’t wait!

Later,

☆AoS 2×19: The Dirty Half Dozen☆

Simmons in The Dirty Half Dozen

(link1)

(link2)

First, I’m going to talk about Simmons. In this episode, she did some pretty crazy stuff, like trying to kill Ward. I love how Fitz and Simmons were talking again, and it seemed like they were messing around. And then Fitz said something along the lines of Simmons being serious about wanting to kill Ward, and she was. I can’t believe she did that. Luckily, Ward didn’t die. But, sadly, Bakshi did. Obviously Simmons is scared about Ward being back, and arming herself would be one thing… But actually trying to kill Ward… That’s going too far.

Skye, Simmons, Ward and Bakshi

(link1)

(link2)

The team was back together in the episode, which was great! It was amazing how Ward was trying to talk about the plan, and he was unnerved by all the death-stares. When Fitz said they used to be a family, and Ward broke that, and then Ward said that’s what he regretted the most… 💔 Sometimes I just want s1 back again 😰 It was nice that the original six got back together, I really loved it. This was a great episode 🙂

Lance Hunter and Mack

(link1)

(link2)

I may or may not have slightly shipped a few new ships during this episode… It seems that whenever two people are alone in a room, I can’t help but ship them a bit. Lance and Mack being one… Although huntingbird is my fave. Bobbi and Kara.. I shipped that for like two minutes.. But they were an awesome two minutes! I hated how Ward thought he wasn’t good enough for Kara… Poor Ward. I know some fans are having a hard time forgiving Ward, but I’m not. Ward is p cool.

Maria

(link1)

(link2)

Maria was in this episode– nice. I loved the AoU tie-ins! Made me even more excited to see AoU! Only two more weeks of AoS left though ;-;

Also~ Poor Lincoln and Mike. I loved how Skye saved Lincoln. I’m really liking Mike a lot now. Raina is cool, I like her. She has awesome powers.

I’m seeing AoU in a few hours!! I’m so excited! AHHHH! I’ll try to post a review of it (spoilers included) late Friday. Here’s to hoping I don’t start bawling in the theater!

later~!

☆AoS 2×17: Melinda☆

I’m actually not that late this time! 😯

This episode was one of my favorites. Well, compared to some s1 stuff, it might not be, but of the recent episodes, it is my fave. This episode had two main plots– both which I found worthwhile and interesting. Plot #1 focused on Melinda May’s past, and we got to see how she became known as “the cavalry”. Plot #2 was Skye learning a bit more about her powers, and learning that Jiaying is her mother. Both of the plots focused on important characters, and they were both important to the overall plot of the show.

melinda may in ep17-- Melinda
(http://cdn.screenrant.com/wp-content/uploads/Agents-of-SHIELD-S02E17-Melinda-May.jpg)
(http://screenrant.com/agents-of-shield-season-2-episode-17-spoilers-review/)

During all the flashbacks, we got to see who Melinda May once was. It was strange to see her display her emotions like that. I feel bad for her. It seemed like she and Andrew had a nice relationship, so it was sad that that ended. Melinda May changed a lot after those events, but she had reason too. It was a traumatic experience. When I was younger, something happened to me, and I’m different now. (What happened to me wasn’t really a bad thing though, it was nothing like this.) Anyway, I can understand why those events would change her. She had to kill people, and worst of all she had to kill a child. Obviously the girl had some problems, and that was the best option for May in that situation, but that was definitely a defining moment for May. She had loved kids before, and maybe now she still secretly does, so killing that girl was a hard thing to do. I liked how AoS showed the contrast between the old Melinda and the more recent, by showing the same events, but differently. (Showering, seeing Andrew in the morning) And now she is faced with some tough choices. She has learned that Coulson had a secret project he didn’t tell anybody about, and she may have a place in the “real SHIELD”.

Skye looking at Jiaying

(http://www.ew.com/article/2015/04/14/agents-shield-what-does-jiaying-really-want)

In this episode, Skye learned who Jiaying was. It was so nice for Skye to have a mother and a mentor all in one. Plus, I mean, Skye literally moved a mountain. She is learning to enjoy her powers, and like her real self. We also learned that Raina may be able to see the future, which is really cool. Lincoln seemed a bit weird about it, so hopefully he doesn’t try to stop the “perfect family” thing. But, it also could just be that he was realizing Raina’s powers.

It was so cool that Fitz is joining the uber-cool team of Coulson and Lance. I’m excited to see them be a cool team.

I’ll be back soon with some AoU excitement posts!

Until then,
