I don’t know about you, but I needed to take some deep breaths during and after this episode. It was insane. Let’s attempt to process some of what happened. First off, the show did a good job of incorporating what happened in Captain America: The Winter Solider. If you hadn’t seen the movie, then it was still easy to follow along. Of course if you were planning to see the movie, you got some things spoiled for you. What is a little difficult to follow is all the twists and turns about who is Hydra and who is the Clairvoyant and who isn’t. There are numerous accusations made throughout the entire episode, and even after someone has been cleared, it is still hard to completely trust that person. Victoria Hand never fully regained my trust, but now she is dead, so she’s not really a concern anymore. What did you think of all the Hydra and Clairvoyant accusations that were happening?

It seems like the Clairvoyant is Hydra because Coulson puts together that Garrett is the Clairvoyant, and then Garrett reveals himself to be Hydra, so it sounds like the Clairvoyant is Hydra’s way of trying to get to the bottom of things, mainly the mystery of Coulson. The Garrett twist is nicely done because he never seems suspicious, unlike his partner Tripp. The twist is not only shocking, but it makes Coulson and Ward question things. Speaking of Ward, it certainly looks like he is joining up with his old SO. He seems shocked when Coulson breaks the news that Garrett is Hydra, so either he is a really good actor, or he honestly didn’t know. I still haven’t decided what to feel about this Ward twist. It certainly makes him more interesting. What are your Ward and Garrett thoughts? Should we still be concerned about Tripp’s loyalties?

Here are some thoughts on elsewhere in the episode. The writers did a good job at showing or hinting at what is happening at S.H.I.E.L.D. facilities all over the world. The Hydra infiltration went deep, even the academy was under attack. Oh Melinda May, what should we do about you? She owns up to being Fury’s mole, but things go much deeper than that. As it turns out, May assembled Coulson’s entire team just in case Coulson went off the wagon as a side effect of the GH-325. This makes complete sense. The entire team not only covers all the basis for field work, but they are all trained in specialties that may be needed if something were to happen with Coulson. The rest of the team is unaware of all of this, and so it will be interesting to see how they treat May in future episodes. What did you think of the episode?
