Coulson and May go undercover, only to run into Talbot. Coulson tries to convince him to not blow their cover while they attempt to steal a religious artifact out from under his nose.
I really like seeing May as a different character than she normally is. It’s very interesting to me that she there’s an entirely different side to Ming-Na Wen than what we’re used to. I also really enjoy Talbot as a villain. He feels like someone who isn’t evil, just playing for the wrong side for what he believes are the right reasons. Just like Marvel villains in the comics, and in some of the later movies. It’s too bad they don’t realize that one of the appealing things about the comics is that the villains are often just as good, if not better, than the heroes.
Sorry, don’t mean to complain about the lackluster villains in the movies of phase 1 and 2, but it’s hard not to think about when they do them so well on TV.
Oh, the humor in this show, though there’s just a few points, was pretty funny. Hopefully they’ll keep up the comic relief of this quality, even if only a couple moments per episode.
+10: Another very intense and entertaining episode
