Episode cast overview:
Vilca (as Celestin Cornielle)


Skye is now integrated into Coulson's team as a consultant. Their next assignment is in Peru, tracking a "0-8-4", a S.H.I.E.L.D. prefix for "an object of unknown origin". Once there, the team quickly realizes that the object is actually a piece of forgotten HYDRA technology powered by Tesseract energy. Coulson meets with a former ally, Camilla Reyes and brings her onboard the team plane. Later, Reyes betrays Coulson and plans to take the HYDRA weapon for herself so she can take over Peru. The squabbling team members band together, utilizing each of their talents, and save the day. Skye receives a text message from another member of the Rising Tide and confirms her allegiance to them. Afterwards, Director Nick Fury scolds Coulson for the damage to the plane, and warns him about the risk Skye poses. Written by sudhanshu prakash

Worse than the pilot
2 October 2013 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

When I saw the pilot, I was hugely disappointed. Crap acting, unbelievable and light weight plot, poor dialogs.

Then I saw the second episode... It is a downfall from the first. They actually made it worse. Who writes this stuff? Who produces it? Who wants to star in it? It feels so cheap, in every way possible. Nobody made the slightest attempt of presenting you with a proper TV show that is worth watching. This in a time when there are so many great TV shows. Maybe it would have worked in the eighties, when we were watching The A-Team and Dukes of Hazard.

What a shame. This should be just as good as The Avengers. Instead it is just as good as Twilight.

I will stop watching this show. I advise you to do the same.
