A look at last week’s show: http://www.examiner.com/article/agent-s-of-s-h-i-e-l-d-1x3-the-asset
Summary: The team tries to track down a mysterious woman who has single-handedly committed numerous high-stakes heists.
I’m beginning to wonder if the shows are at all intertwined. It seems that week to week has a different story line going on. This is the first show where it might actually lead to a larger plot line.
The characters are really starting to become in their own. Ward is really starting to open up to being a team player and stepping up and being the leader that Coulson needs. Skye is proving her worth to the team while Fitz and Simmons are quickly becoming the best secondary characters on the show.
Next week’s show does looks a lot of fun as we get to see someone trying to create a superhero. And tension seems to be happening between Skye and the group. Perhaps it has to do with that text message that she got in episode 2. Guess we will have to stay tuned and see what happened next week.
Here’s a recap of the show.
The show opens with a group of people wearing red masks and in suits are walking through a market. They pass a woman who starts following them through the train station. They all get on a train. The woman notices that they are handcuffed to their briefcases. She knocks out the power and knocks out all the masked men on her car, stealing one of the briefcases.
The woman opens the briefcase which is filled with diamonds. She takes it and gets on a train.
Coulson goes to talk to May and she says she wants to be alone.
Ward is talking with Fitz/Simmons about their latest weapon. Coulson comes down looking for Skye. He asks her to help people figure out whose stealing diamonds from the bank.
Skye/May/Coulson look over the crime scene. Skye suggests ESP. May asks why they are doing the job and Coulson says he picked it. Skye shows them pictures on social network.
Skye/May/Coulson are looking over the pictures. Coulson recognizes the woman as Akela Amadora and he trained her.
Coulson fills May/Skye about his past with Amadora and why he chose the job. They meet with Ward and he says she hasn’t talked with any of her contacts. Coulson doesn’t want to involve HQ just yet. Coulson tells Skye he feels guilty that he might have pushed her too hard to be a team player.
Amadora meets with a man in a hotel. She shows the man the diamonds she hid in golf balls. He hands her a passkey as payment.
Ward/Coulson/Fitz/Simmons/Skye are on the ground looking for Amadora.
Ward/Coulson go into the city.
Skye keeps going with her ESP theory with Fitz/Simmons. She calls Ward and tells him about the weird signal that she is getting. She starts asking him non-job related questions and he gets annoyed and ends the call.
Coulson/Ward ask a woman about Amadora. She tells them that Amadora was able to sense her tumor and saved her.
Skye is able to crack code of a video feed of Amadora. They see that Amadora is a van and crashes into them. Skye tries to shoot the gun but she presses the wrong button and the car gets tossed off the road.
The group arrives back at the plane. Ward wants to go to HQ. Skye says she might be able to use the feed so they can watch her. Skye cracks the feed and they see that Amadora is the camera. Fitz/Simmons say that the technology is beyond them. May wants to go to HQ and Coulson doesn’t want to. They see her writing a note and Coulson figures out that she’s being controlled.
Skye goes to talk to Coulson. She says she supports his decision to help Amadora.
Coulson checks on the feed and notices that May is gone. He knows that May went to her.
May goes to meet with Amadora. Amadora tells her that ‘they’ can figure out May’s shield by facial recognition and that if Amadora doesn’t kill May then they kill her.
May/Amadora fight and right before Amadora can shoot May and Coulson shoots her.
Coulson tells Amadora that she is safe and that Ward/Skye are acting as if they are her and getting her feed until they can shut down the ‘fail-safe’ in her eye. She asks why he’s helping her. She apologizes for what she did and how her actions killed the team.
Ward/Skye are at the plant and she was able to fully hack and make the glasses look as if Amadora’s eyes.
Amadora is talking with Coulson. She tells him about how they performed surgeries on her eyesight and how they started controlling her.
Skye finishes off Ward’s glasses and he goes into the building.
Coulson keeps trying to get Amadora to figure out who the one that is giving her the messages. They go through the messages and figure out he’s British and a heavy set man.
Ward is walking into the building.
Coulson asks Fitz/Simmons to try and put down the ‘fail-safe’.
Ward is walking through the building and Skye is helping him through it.
Coulson meets with May and leaves going to help Ward.
Fitz/Simmons get to work on Amadora.
Ward finds the ‘target’ and it says to seduce the target. He asks Skye for help to get past the man. It doesn’t work so he knocks out the guard. He goes into a room and sees two men working on typewriters and the room is a giant chalkboard filled with equations. They take pictures of the equation and alarm sounds off.
Simmons is working on the ‘fail-safe’ while Fitz is cringing. Simmons forces Fitz to help to disable to ‘fail-safe’.
Fitz calls Ward to ask how to diffuse a bomb. While doing so, his face is exposed and the man knows it’s not Amadora.
Fitz cuts the wires right before it explodes.
Coulson finds the man and he dies once Coulson tells him he’s SHIELD.
Coulson is talking with Amadora about what happened. They don’t know who he was working for and what they wanted with the picture. He says he will testify for her to help her. Amadora thanks him before he leaves. She asks May what they did to him before the battle of New York and May doesn’t know what she’s talking about.
Coulson goes to talk with Skye.
Fitz/Ward are playing poker. Fitz is trying to cheat having Skye use the glasses but she scares him away saying she would also see him naked.
