Skye and Simmons try to find out more information about the mission, since they are not privy to details about the mission which has been classified as Level 8. Simmons manages to tranquilize Agent Jasper Sitwell who catches her in the act of hacking into top secret Level 8 files. Skye deduces from the information that there is no extraction team coming to pick up Ward and Fitz as Coulson learns about this upon catching her. After a talk with Victoria Hand, Coulson and the team proceed to rescue Ward and Fitz (who manage to disable the Overkill device) as S.H.I.E.L.D. Agents move in on the compound.

Another good episode showcasing another bond between another pair, this time it's Fitz and Ward. It was interesting to look more into the inner workings of big Shield. There was some weird parts though, especially with Sitwell and Simmons. That was painfully awkward.

It was great to see Fitz and Ward go on a mission together. It was good to see them bond as Fitz kept proving to Ward that he is of use in the field, winning over an angry Russian gang, using the Overkill device, and kicking a guy in the face. I liked how it led Fitz and Ward to like and trust each other even more.

Big Shield was also really interesting to see how much power they have around the world. Victoria Hand was very comic book accurate, being the hardass boss with a tactical mind. It might have seemed bland and offputting but I liked it because she was no nonsense but still likes Coulson.

Skye and Simmons' adventure bordered between interesting and awkward. While they were looking more into how much Shield compartmentalizes and sort of values lower agents less, they also gave us a really odd scene with Simmons trying to seduce and subdue Sitwell. Yeah, she's a terrible liar, but that was hard to sit through.

+ Fitz and Ward bond + Fitz in action + Big Shield and Hand - Skye, Simmons and Sitwell conundrum

Final Score: 8.4/10
