Synopsis: After the events of Thor: The Dark World, the agents must track down an Asgardian weapon that has fallen into the wrong hands.
In its biggest referencing to date, Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. opens with a cleanup operation centred around action sequences that laid waste to London in Thor: The Dark World. Although it’s probably pleasant enough for fans, it does also seem tacked on. Sure, it serves as a reminder concerning Asgardians and their way of life, which is essential to the episode’s plot. The episode opens up with clips taken from Thor and Thor: The Dark World, although Chris Hemsworth’s face is mysteriously absent, probably to avoid royalties. It is a fairly decent scene which does address the question of who cleans up »

As we reach the much-hyped crossover with Thor: The Dark World, Coulson and co have some Asgardian cleaning up to do. And Ward and May enjoy a hotel room assignation

Stop: hammer time? The advance hype for this episode dangled the tantalising prospect of a crossover with Thor: The Dark World. At first blush, the tie-in seemed to consist of Shield agents tidying up in the wake of Asgardians who might either be gods or aliens but who are definitely dreamy. Sifting through the wreckage of a dark elf doomsday device, Coulson's team indulged in notably good-natured ribbing and quipping, with Agent Ward preaching how vitally important it was to keep anything potentially harmful locked up, presumably in a special Shield containment »

“The Well” was the most anticipated episode of Agents of Shield since the pilot, with Star Trek: Tng actor Jonathan Frakes behind the camera, guest star Peter MacNicol, and, of course, the cross-promotion with Thor 2. Fortunately for ABC and the series’ steadily falling ratings, “The Well” was also the Shield‘s best hour by a large margin. The Thor 2 insertions, while unnecessary, didn’t stick out like a sore thumb, and actually worked with the main story of Dr. Elliot Randolph’s (MacNicol) Asgardian identity. The B-story of Ward’s Tragic Past was more of a promise than the fulfillment of one, but it also led to the nice surprise of him taking up Melinda’s invitation for some sexual healing. (Please don’t let this be a fake-out.) All in all, “The Well” fired on all cylinders: character development, plot, humor, and illustrating the ways crazy people become even crazier once they discover the »

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Season 1, Episode 8, “The Well”
Written by Monica Breen
Directed by Jonathan Frakes
“The Well” is the first episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. to directly continue a story from one of the Marvel movies. “Fzzt” referenced the consequences from The Avengers, but “The Well” literally picks up where Thor 2 left off with Coulson’s team sifting through the wreckage of Greenwich and the library. They collect most of the Asgardian remnants left behind, but not far away, a magical staff from Asgard is taken by a power-hungry gang of anarchists who aspire to be gods themselves.
The episode’s biggest trick is distracting the audience with the threat of the anarchists while sneaking in a much more interesting character. In adventure stories, the heroes will often seek out a brainy professor to interpret the Egyptian hieroglyphs or deliver some exposition about a Biblical relic. Peter MacNicol as »

So what happens after Thor shows up and saves London and the world from total annihilation at the hands of the Dark Elves in “Thor: The Dark World”? Well, someone’s gotta clean up after him, as it turns out. Which is where the agents of Shield come in in this week’s episode “The Well”. Check out the first four minutes of the episode below. This actually reminds me a bit of an old Marvel comic book about regular people who went around New York cleaning up after superhero battles. It was a really interesting idea, but it got canceled pretty soon, I think. Hopefully that doesn’t happen to “Agents of Shield”. I could use two more years of this show. Or at least one more year. I like the characters, and I honestly could even do without the Marvel tie-ins, but maybe that’s just me. And oh, »
It’s difficult to tell from this 4+ minute clip of the next Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. episode whether you really need to have seen the new Thor movie to get a full appreciation of what’s going on. At least at the beginning, it looks like you only need to have seen the numerous TV spots we’ve been posting here at SciFiMafia.com.
Remember, as we told you earlier this month, this episode is described as follows: “In the aftermath of the events chronicled in the feature film Thor: The Dark World, Coulson and The Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. pick up the pieces — one of which threatens to destroy a member of the team.”
So sink right into this clip, which is probably from the very beginning of the episode. You might take particular delight, as I have, in Agent Coulson’s quips about “Thor and his people”: »

Over the past few weeks we've been inundated with news from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but 20th Century Fox stole a few headlines from Marvel Studios this week by releasing the first trailer for Bryan Singer's hotly-anticipated mutant epic X-Men: Days of Future Past, next year's time-travelling X-sequel sequel which brings together Fox's original X-Men and X-Men: First Class timelines. Although lacking in any real visual effects (owing to the fact they're yet to be completed), the teaser gave us a look at the majority of »

Hey, fans of Marvel Universe crossovers, it looks like those clever dogs at Marvel are at it again. This time they’re crossing over their upcoming movie “Thor: The Dark World” with their TV property, “Agents of Shield”. Plans have apparently been laid to have the events of “The Dark World” somehow impacting on the Marvel U via “Shield” by way of the November 19th episode, to be called “The Well”. In that episode… In the aftermath of the events chronicled in the feature film Marvel’s “Thor: The Dark World,” Coulson and the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. pick up the pieces–one of which threatens to destroy a member of the team. “The Well” was written by Monica Owusu-Breen and directed by Jonathan Frakes (of “Star Trek” fame, now a pretty prolific director of TV and movies). It will feature guest stars Peter MacNicol as Professor Elliot Randolph, Michael Graziadei as Jakob Nystrom, »
As can be glimpsed in the previews, a fairly major part of the action in Marvel's "Thor: The Dark World" takes place in the U.K. where strange physics-defying phenomenon are a key element to the film's overall plot.
Jonathan Frakes ("Star Trek: First Contact," "Burn Notice") directs the episode "The Well" in which Coulson and his fellow agents set out to pick up the mess left behind by events in the 'Thor' film. It also seems that something left in the rubble threatens to destroy a member of the team.
There's rumor that the episode will also boast a cameo from one of the film's actors, similar to the way Samuel L. Jackson already cameoed in an »
