Hydra Agents disguised as Shield attacks the United Nations. Coulson and his agents have to rush to prove their innocence before the world turns against Shield…again.
I really like the scenes between Morse and his ex-wife Bobbi. They’re both funny and realistic in a way, and I like that they’re both spies fighting for Shield. It makes the fact that they still care about each other more obvious as they feel it necessary to protect each other, even if they kind of hate each other at the same time. I like dynamics like that.
Ward gets a much bigger role in this episode, which I’m grateful for as he’s a much more interesting villain than he ever was as the heroic superspy. I’m interested to see where this goes or if Ward is allowed back into Hydra if the show chooses to go in that direction. I also like that nobody trusts him, just in that I feel most people in shows like these are too easy to trust the people who’ve betrayed them and this is a much more realistic reaction to finding out your best friend is actually working for your sworn enemy.
+8: A bit slow to start but became a pretty darn good episode if I do say so myself
