Meanwhile, SkyeDaisy's attempts to make a new team of Secret Warriors is kind of put on hold because dr. No one wants to have the talk with him, that Jemma is most likely dead, so they should just let him lead. She looks really badass with her hair cut short the way it was. Speaking of things tying together, we get some nice little subtle nods to the Marvel movies. As he tells people who are running away from him, he is trying to get to the hospital. Is it one of the Asgardian realms? Or is 'death' literal and we're actually exploring Marvel's hell? And we get a nice, carnal scene as Fitz, bereft of all hope, just shotgun-blasts the monolith's casing and just tries to probably kill himself or get himself to where Simmons is. He says 'is anyone else having trouble getting used to that' so that Mack can tell him 'Nope just you, everyone else moved on.
Mack interrupts their otherwise tender moments to announce that President Ellis is addressing the Inhuman problem, and everyone goes to watch this. He is stopped by vehicles of armed men. As in traditional superhero setting, no one who wants to go back and live a normal life ever gets it, so naturally the moment that Lincoln, Skye and Mack discuss about Lincoln helping to train Joey to control his powers, the mysterious third party that has been killing Inhumans show up. We get nice scenes of Coulson talking to both Skye and Bobbi; Coulson snarking about his new cybernetic arm cool effects on that, too ; the odd little friendship of Bobbi being buddies with Fitz who I don't think she even had a scene with last season ; Bobbi herself recovering and having some unresolved tension with Hunter which is honestly getting old ; Skye and Mack talking to Joey; Coulson's scene with Rosalind. That shotgun-ax line was definitely fun, though.
Coulson detaching his arm to escape was super bad-ass. It doesn't really take up that much space, and we cut back and forth to the other characters too. Fitz opens the briefcase, revealing that he brought the disks that had been used to dispatch of Bakshi in the previous season, and had almost killed General Talbot as well, rendering all of its victims into tiny particles of atom. And after 4 movies and 2 seasons, he finally lost the suit. A new addition to the team? It only incapacitates them for a few moments, though, since they rapidly go after him. Inhumans who have killed are sent there?! May is, by the way, still on holiday. Or will Lash take him out the moment he steps into nature? The original person who posted this particular post had a pretty solid hypothesis as to where she could be and what she could be running from,.
Definitely loving this new superhero-themed angle we're having, too. Plus Coulson and Fitz briefly mention Pym particles from Ant-Man as one of the possible things that might happen to Simmons. Also, yeah, it's great that Skye is using her name Daisy in the show which does raise a lot of nice implications about her character growth, how she's changed over two seasons, how she's accepted her Inhuman self and how she's the incarnation of the Marvel comics character Quake. She first believed her abilities were a curse, after all, until he showed her the way. Honestly, the episode moved at such a fast pace that I hadn't even realized that May was absent until Coulson mentioned it - at which point I missed her quite a bit. We immediately begin the episode with the bottle of fish oil vitamins that we know this new character, Joey, has ingested before totally ransacking his own home.
Obama's press secretary Carney, I believe shows up at the end of Avengers, so I assume Obama was president then, until specified otherwise. Joey nods, as if he understood what she meant, but I wonder at the level of his involvement later on… Will he appear often from now on? And all while we cut back and forth between the other not-so-prominent characters in this episode. It introduces the new status quo, shows off some impressive stuff especially for Skye-Daisy and Fitz, and introduces a bunch of new characters. Before she lets him out, she tells him that the entire room — made of the same material — is put to his disposition and that he can do what he wants. But Skye yeah referring to her as Daisy's not going to work for me, at least not for the moment is adamant on making this work, so she and Mack goes off to find Lincoln, who's working as a doctor and wants nothing to do with the Inhumans.
They were being meta, Coulson is supposed to represent the audience in that scene. I mean, it's not like Skye is emotionally unstable when she first came out as an Inhuman oh wait. Regardless of metaphors they are still strong scenes. After all, he learned the traditions and he knows how it is. Fitz returns to the Headquarters, hurrying to the lab in order to open the scroll casing that he stole from Morocco, with Coulson looking on, and trying to help. Pretend not to care about Hunter, perhaps?? Together, Daisy and he attempt to explain that, given the nature of his abilities, even if he gained control over his abilities, he would need to be mentally stable enough to never use them unless he absolutely needed to, before they can release him to the world.
I can see him having trouble with the change and what it means. On the geeky side, we get confirmation that the Terrigen mist is the only one hiding in seafood and whatnot, and the metal harmful to humans is still sitting at the bottom of the ocean. Fitz, meanwhile, is just being a boss and just travelling around hunting down archaeological clues about the monolith, going up to a radical group in Middle East and just owning that confrontation by fooling them with splinter bombs a nice callback to their usages in season two before smoothly walking out with that parchment he needs. Gotham and its stupid batcave can learn a thing or two from this. All of this from looking through his Facebook! So I guess Daisy will be showing Lincoln the way, huh? Not only that, but it turned also seems to have turned some people in his home to stone, and destroyed many parts of his home.
Again, this opening scene is really strong, making me happy that they're not wasting this second well, third, technically chance they have to redeem themselves after the crappy first half of season two. There will be a separate thread made to discuss the promo and comments about it will be removed from this thread. I have to admit that I was less than thrilled with this show's beginning. Meanwhile, Mack is meeting with a graphics designer? What I'm worried about is that we've already kind of done this 'knight templar military organization' thing before with General Talbott and Robert Gonzales, so we might be retreading old ground. .
It just took some time to work out the kinks. He reveals to us that Fitz has been gone for awhile, requesting to research archives here and there, and going on leads, so frantic is he to find out what happened to Jemma and how to bring her back. I didn't think the characters were well defined and the plot seemed very lackluster. Now, he believes that Inhumanity is a curse and that Daisy, of all people, should know that. Coulson then dispatch them to visit Lincoln again. Simmons is alive, though, and while I have no clue about Marvel comics beyond the most basic, I guess it'll be entertaining to see how this all ties together. Feel free to message us moderators if you have suggestions or concerns about these.
Coulson wants Fitz to look into where a certain gun comes from, so they can narrow the search to the woman. Also, fish oil gives you metal melting powers. Simmons, meanwhile, is on a desolate alien planet. Each week, the characters are developing and the chemistry between the actors is getting better. I wonder if we'll see Ellis or his successor in Civil War? I mean, Lash does kinda-sorta look like Blackheart. He is also seen melting metal, a power that is amazing to have if he controls it. I guess this arc for him will be reverse table from what Daisy went through.
