A look at last week’s show: http://www.examiner.com/article/agents-of-s-h-i-e-l-d-1x1-pilot-recap-se...
Summary: Coulson encounters Comandante Camilla Reyes in Peru while investigation a mysterious object.
Guest Starring: Samuel L. Jackson
In the second episode of the highly reviewed new show, we got everything we got in the first episode. The plot is starting to thicken around the 0-8-4 they found in the first episode.
We get into the dynamics of the team, seeing them argue and work out the kinks on being on a team. Fitz and Simmons are definitely the best characters in the show. The way they talk, not only to each other, but to other people is priceless. They are definitely the highlight of the show.
We got another clue about the 0-8-4 and that it is filled with the same thing that was involved in the Captain America movie. It’s highly lethal and the fact that the characteristics about it are still unknown, it makes it that more dangerous.
Now, of course what would this show be without some kind of cliffhanger at the end. This one is not quite as big as the last episode, but it’s still intriguing. Someone messaged Skye and the question is who? And why do they want to go dark?
How pumped was I during the final scene? I’m not going to say what but I gotta say, I literally shrieked out loud. I hope this trend goes for the entire show.
Another good thing about this show is that we got a inside look to the new Thor movie. I would expect this benefit to work well in the future for all future Marvel comic book movies.
