Air Date: March 3, 2015
The team is dealing with the death of Trip in their own way while Skye’s father is plotting something evil and a new villain seems to be on the loose. Coulton and team are trying to keep Hydra at bay, but there might be a new, even greater threat on the horizon.
It’s interesting to see how this show has grown and changed since the beginning of the series. In this episode I think it’s become a bit too melodramatic for my tastes but the actual drama is still there. I do like the touching send off to Trip at the end of the episode, along with a few of the twists concerning Skye. It becomes a decent episode, by the end, though it’s bogged down by unnecessary melodrama, monologues, and filler.
The first third of the episode is especially guilty of this. It got to a point I thought the whole show was going to be one long expositional scene after the other. I’m glad that it eventually gets going when it crashes a truck into the whole thing, but then that turns out to be a lie. I guess I’m saying this episode had a lot of pluses and an lot of minuses but I think it’s better than it is worse.
+6: Decent episode…eventually
-1: Too much exposition in the beginning
+1: A very heartfelt send off to a good character
