Agents of Shield Season 1 Episode 21 'The Beginning of the End' Review: "You Ready to Change the World?"

15 May 2014 2:07 AM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

Marvel's Agents of Shield survived and will get a second season. It'll even be joined by Hayley Atwell's Agent Carter, which opens up some interesting time-travel-based crossover episodes. Oh, and this finale? It was very well done. Plots were wrapped up, bigger mythologies were extended, and Coulson got the answers he wanted. Bill Paxton could be tagged as this show's savior, and his exit was pretty spectacular. I couldn't help but notice that Ward was trying to tell May something before she clocked him. What could that have been? I guess we'll find out in the fall.

Here are the 6 Qs of the Agents of Shield Season 1 finale.

1. What is it?

Agents of Shield Season One finale, titled 'The Beginning of the End.'

2. Who's in it?

The series regulars, Clark Gregg as Phil Coulson, Ming-Na Wen as Melinda may, Brett Dalton as Agent Ward, Chloe Bennet as Skye, »

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Finale Recap: A Bang and a Whimper

14 May 2014 6:42 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has completed its last mission: delivering a passable season finale. Despite its ominous title, last night's "Beginning of the End" plays it pretty safe: The good guys survive, the bad guys go down, and the only character who dies is John Garrett, played by the splashy (and presumably expensive) guest star Bill Paxton. Take out Fitz's debilitating injuries, and this is basically a Wayne's World–style "mega-happy ending"; we even get Patton Oswalt back, playing Eric Koenig's identical twin/clone/Life Model Decoy Billy Koenig."Beginning of the End" begins by dispensing with last week's cliff-hanger in about 90 seconds. (It's a good thing May brought that berserker staff, and the Hydra's soldiers are content to stand around while she brings the roof down on them.) From there, the episode gets down to business as Coulson and Garrett assemble their teams for a final battle. This is »

'Agents of Shield' finale: Welcome to your new life, Coulson

13 May 2014 9:54 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Is everyone okay? No, really, it’s a serious question: Is everyone okay? Because I’m not okay and — full disclosure — I’ve had over a week for this finale to sink into my head.

This year has been a helluva ride for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. While we’ve endured some ups and downs in terms of storytelling and pacing (we’ll dissect all of those in tomorrow’s wrap-up post) and while we dealt at times with some ultimately frustrating character developments and plot lines, there’s no question that we ended on a high, explosive note.

'Agents of Shield': Bill Paxton previews season finale, teases Garrett's 'master plan'

13 May 2014 10:15 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

When Bill Paxton appeared on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. as Coulson’s old friend and Ward’s original S.O., I immediately mentioned that I hoped he would find a way to recur regularly. Thankfully, the showrunners seemed to share my sentiment, allowing Paxton to fold into the cast for the last third of the season not only as the “Big Bad” but also as someone with prominent ties to the show’s most significant plot lines.

In advance of tonight’s season finale, we spoke with Paxton about what we could expect from Garrett now that he’s finally achieved »

Interview: 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' co-star Bill Paxton on the finale and feeling The Universe

12 May 2014 11:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I wasn't exactly surprised when "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." sprung the big reveal last month that Bill Paxton's John Garrett turned out to be evil. I mean... He's Bill Paxton. It's not that Bill Paxton is constantly playing evil characters or anything, but if you bring in an actor with Paxton's pedigree -- Four Golden Globe nominations, an Emmy nod and the credibility that comes from "Aliens," "Near Dark," etc -- you're not bringing him in to play the boring straight-arrow authority figure. So it was almost a relief when Garrett turned sneering villain and then it was genuinely interesting when, in last week's episode, the frequently rushed "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." took the time to do a flashback-heavy episode explained both Garrett's Hydra-loving origins and the conditions that might also have turned Brett Dalton's Ward. When last we saw Garrett, we had discovered »

Agents of Shield Season 1 Episode 20 'Ragtag' Review: "Watch Out, Hydra, Here We Come"

7 May 2014 11:16 PM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

One episode of Marvel's Agents of Shield remains. One episode to wrap up the whole Hydra vs. Shield storyline. One episode to explain Skye's origin. One hour, folks. Forty-four minutes without commercials. That's all we get.

With no advance word on a second season, this could very well be it. Two months ago, I would have welcomed it. But now, now this show is one of my favorite shows on TV. That usually means that it will be cancelled. Hopefully they resolve all of the above in this last hour and we aren't left wondering what could have been when a terrible reality show takes the Tuesday night timeslot in the fall.

Here are the 6 Qs of this week's Agents of Shield.

1. What is it?

Agents of Shield Season 1, Episode 21, titled 'Ragtag.'

2. Who's in it?

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. – Episode 21 Review

7 May 2014 10:13 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Angus Houvouras reviews the penultimate episode of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D….

There’s a sound I’m hearing while watching the latest episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D..  It’s the sound of someone hitting the brakes over and over again bringing all the build up momentum to a screeching halt.  That would be the second to last  episode of the season “Ragtag” which sidelines the show while trying to deliver some wildly unnecessary back story about the nefarious Agent Ward.

‘Why?’ is a question that often derails a good story.  Sometimes the why isn’t all that important.  Ever since Agent Ward was revealed to be a double agent working for Hydra, I hadn’t once considered why he did it.  He’s a cold, calculating, blunt instrument who turns out to have been working for the enemy.  The »

Last Night on “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”: Trust No One

7 May 2014 4:12 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Coulson and his team infiltrate Cybertek in an effort to stop Garrett, but their enemy remains one step ahead of them.

Previously on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Agent Grant Ward turned out to be a sociopathic murderer who went and killed a number of agents. And then he kidnapped Skye in an effort to get information his mentor, John Garrett, desperately wanted. She gave up the information, but only after Deathlok threatened to kill Ward if she didn’t. And S.H.I.E.L.D. lies in ruins and Phil Coulson and his teams struggle on in the aftermath.

This episode kicks off with a flashback to fifteen years ago. Ward was in juvenile detention for setting his house on fire. Garrett finds him and offers him a choice between a really tough life and jail and he doesn’t give Ward really any time to think about it. »

'Agents of Shield': Clark Gregg teases Agent Coulson's possible revenge

6 May 2014 11:54 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has thrown viewers some pretty big head-spinning twists and turns lately — and while team bonds have fallen apart and traitors have come forward, we’ve seen it all reflected in the glue that holds everyone together: Agent Phil Coulson. It’s been an emotional few weeks watching Coulson come to terms with the fact that S.H.I.E.L.D., as well as his trust, has been compromised. But last week’s episode seemed to indicate a turning point…so are we finally going to get to see Coulson fight back for an organization that he still believes in? »

Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Bill Paxton On The Last Few Episodes Of Season One

21 April 2014 7:24 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Ever since his character was expanded upon after his first appearance in Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Bill Paxton's John Garrett has become a fan favorite recurring character for many people. While some fans may know him as the character introduced in Frank Miller/Bill Sienkiewicz 1986 miniseries Elektra: Assassin, it wasn't really until he was introduced in the fourteenth episode that fans learned who this guy is. But the fact that he is played by the talented Bill Paxton is enough to get into the character for reasons other than being a character from the comics. At this week's WonderCon, the actor was asked a few questions about the show. Mainly, he was asked if the character and his story became much bigger than he expected, because everyone who saw the recent episodes of the show will know that is role is indeed much bigger than most/all of us expected. »

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Recap: One Step for Ward, One Step Back

16 April 2014 7:12 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

It was going to be difficult for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. to top last week's "Turn, Turn, Turn," which ended with S.H.I.E.L.D. in tatters and the revelation that one of our heroes had been a villain all along. That's the kind of glacial shift that necessitates a breather, so it's not quite a criticism when I say that tonight's middle-of-the-road "Providence" felt like the transitional episode it was — a comedown from the twisty events of last week's episode, and a table-setter for next week's promising-looking "The Only Light in the Darkness.""Providence" splits its time almost evenly between our heroes and our villains, who have vastly different experiences at two distinct top-secret S.H.I.E.L.D. bases. The newly released John Garrett — better known to his more gullible henchmen as "The Clairvoyant" — is free to launch the next phase of his plan: infiltrating a S. »
