✿Agent Carter 2×03: Better Angels✿

Peggy from the episode, side view
(link1)
(link2)

 

Agent Carter is awesome, you guys! Expect this post to be short and sweet– because (like always) it’s a week late, and I (sadly) forgot a lot of what happened. BUT I may glance at other reviews for a little idea. Also, only one pic this post bc i’m FAR too lazy to find good pics/gifs and link accordingly, tbh. sorrs.

 

First of all– Jason Wilkes is back!!! Yayyyyy!!!! yay!!1 BUT BUT BUT he’s only part there– he can be seen, but not touched– Howard is able to get him this far, and they plan to fix him eventually. But yay, he’s back!! I so wasn’t ready for him to be gone so soon, and him and Peggy have awesome chemistry, like dang. 

 

Howard was in this episode, being his playboy Tony-esc self, but he’s pretty entertaining, and I loved how Peggy was all like “Howard’s a good boy!” that part was amazing. And it was funny how Peggy was all “a movie based off a comic book sounds stupid” but that’s where she first appeared (aside from comics themselves, i mean) and that’s basically what her show is now. (except, you know, it’s a show)

 

Whitney Frost is evil as always, she’s not a good person, and I don’t quite like her… but she’s interesting, like how she cried to get her husband to do stuff for her, even when he obviously didn’t want to. Now, I’m always on Peggy’s side– I don’t want Whitney to win– but if we get some more insight into her actions, now, that wouldn’t be half-bad.

 

There was a hint of a weird-something with Jack Thompson… a maybe HYDRA bound sort of weird-something. Which, okay, I’m not a fan of Jack, but I’d still like him to NOT be HYDRA. Like, there was a moment (when you say to yourself, ‘oh there you are, i’ve been looking for you forever’) in s1, where he had PTSD and like I think he has some redeeming qualities, even if they’re buried in all the bad ones.

 

So, that’s that! Here’s to hoping I don’t wait so long to review this coming ep.

 

Let’s also hope I can restrain from making any more Glee references on this blog. I mean, god, Victoria, get a hold of yourself.

 

Anyway, let’s have fun watching AC tonight!!

☆AoS 3×06: Among Us Hide…☆

late again. whatever, it’s become like a routine now. plus, probably no one is reading this anyway, so why does it even matter?

Coulson looking at Rosalind
(link1)
(link2)

In this episode we found out that Rosalind is keeping Inhumans in a coma-like state, in these containers. We learn there are reasons for it– personal ones, but still. Coulson acts like he’s okay with it, and they get a little flirty and stuff. Yeah that’s pretty much all I’ve got to say about that tbh..

bobbi
(link1)
(link2)

At the start of the episode, May seemingly attacks Bobbi. Bobbi says that she didn’t want Andrew to get killed, she didn’t mean for that to happen. Turns out, it was a test to see if Bobbi is field-ready, and May decides she is. Bobbi and Hunter talk a bit before she goes, and she asks Hunter if he’s going to “say the thing”, to which he replies that she already knows it. That kind of breaks my heart, as she obviously wanted him to say it then. She goes on the mission with May, and they are in a bank, doing work. bobbi looks great in glasses and bobbi and may talking in mandarin is my new aesthetic Something goes wrong, and as the gate closes, Bobbi obviously jumps– because of her PTSD. She tries to avoid fighting, but they have to fight. Later on, she has to really fight– she is shoved underwater, and she’s obviously struggling. When she gets out, she takes a huge breath, then kicks ass. She says how she knows she’ll beat the guy is thanks to “experience”– something which May had recently talked to her about. It was great to see Bobbi back in action, and see the visible effects/affects (lol i’m too lazy to figure out which is right) of the trauma she’s been through. I’m hoping, though, that they continue to show her PTSD. Sure, she kicked butt, but that doesn’t instantly make PTSD go away, and I’m really hoping that will continue to be addressed.

Lash
(link1)
(link2)

There was a huge reveal in this episode– first of all, Andrew isn’t dead– and, turns out, he’s Lash. That was pretty unexpected (although i had read a theory about it but still) and after that it’s pretty frightening– hopefully he won’t hurt anyone. May talks to a dying Alexander/Werner/whateverhisnameis about it, and when he explains, May is very shaken, especially for her. Yeah, so that was the biggest twist so far this season.

Lincoln on the phone with Daisy
(link1)
(link2)

Lincoln and Daisy talk briefly at the end of the episode cute as always   so yeah. Not much really happens with that, though. Hunter was pretty funny in this episode–being bored he tags along with Daisy and Mack, and ices a guy surprisingly. Yeah he’s kind of amazing.

So that’s that! Joey’s back in this episode, so yay! Hopefully Lash doesn’t kill him… This’ll probably be a tense episode, to say the least.

until next time aka next tuesday,

☆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,

avengersfangirl

☆AoS 3×04: Devils You Know☆

yes, yes, i know. i’m late once again. anyway, i’m in a time-crunch, so let’s get to it!

Alicia
(link1)
(link2)

Alicia was back in this episode! The trailer showed that she’d be pretty prominent, although she wasn’t in th ep as much as i’d expected. Anyway, she’s cool and I hope we get to see more of her. I was pretty sad that Lash killed her other Inhuman friends– all the Inhumans have it pretty dang hard right now, and hopefully Daisy’s team will help with that.

Simmons on alien planet
(link1)
(link2)

Simmons. In this episode we saw her struggling with PTSD, even though she was saying she was fine when talking with Andrew. We also saw some cute Fitzsimmons– B is for blue is for biological. That was adorable and cute and squee. Near the end of the ep she says she’ll need Fitz’s help to go back to the planet, and that she’ll tell him everything. The promo shows 3×05 being a primarily, if not entirely, Jemma-centric episode, which I’m hella excited for. Apparently there was also a clip released (that the above image is from) but I have not yet watched it, as I prefer the surprise of seeing it in the episode. Anyway, I’m totally pumped for tonight, y’all! this is gonna be great and heartbreaking!

Skye seeing Lash morph into a human
(link1)
(link2)

Lash is a butt. But also interesting af. So he killed the Inhuman couple at the start, boo. And later he attacks the truck with Mack, Daisy, and the ATCU. Daisy sees him walking away and the shadow turns into a human shape. So this is exciting!!! Some say Andrew might be Lash, but idk. Either way, it’s going to be cool to see his human self, and maybe we’ll even get to see the transformation in action in a later ep.

May and Hunter
(link1)
(link2)

Last, and most intense– Hunter and May. So they went to go chase down Ward, and things got pretty intense. So May was backup for Hunter and they started attacking Ward, and Ward had some HYDRA peeps to help him. Things were getting pretty intense, they were shooting at each other. Then Ward threatened May with Andrew– saying Andrew would die and showing live feed of Andrew at that moment. May was obviously shaken. Hunter, on the other hand, said it was just a trick, to get into May’s head. He continued attacking Ward– and Andrew died because of it. And, after all of that drama, Ward still got away– although he was hit by one of Hunter’s bullets. Hunter got pretty into it– def going to kill Ward either way. However, letting Andrew die was a bit too much– he’s obviously very intense on wanting Ward dead, but he needs to turn it down a notch. Andrew, though, may not be dead. I’ve seen people say he might not be, and even some saying he might be Lash.

anyway, i’m super pumped for our Simmons ep tonight!

catch u 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.

(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. 💕

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,

avengersfangirl
