Agent Coulson is captured by Centipede and May has to lead the team to save him. Meanwhile, Cetipede is using a machine to show Coulson what happened after he died in the Avengers.

This show seems to be coming into its own, which is nice. It feels much less like it’s just following in the footsteps of the films. I like the whole team a lot more now, even Wade. I’m just hoping it sticks with the serialized stuff and doesn’t feel like it has to be just another episodic program.

This does a good job of following up on a lot of stuff that’s come in previous episodes as well. I was surprised by that, something that I thought was just an attempt (that failed) at a running joke actually turns out to be something more. Maybe this is a turn to showing why the first half of this season, though kinda crappy, was necessary in order to get to this good stuff? Doubtful, but I can hope, can’t I?

SCORING:

+10: I’m glad they finally made an episode that made me like the show as a whole, now let’s see if they screw it up…
