In the wake of re-surfacing of Centipede, Shield recruits Mike after their last not-so-warm encounter, in order to balance the scales against Centipede's super-soldiers. At this end Centipede is looking for technology which would allow them to stabilize the serum fully. Amidst all these is the myth of a Clairvoyant and Shield has never been at such a downside of advantage at discerning the true intentions of their opponents. Written by enigma

Extremis, Eye Poppers and Major Shark-Jump
14 December 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

After last week's visit to rural Jesusamerica and Daemons that came from Odin's Broken Rainbow Bridge, we get back to our Mythos, back to Square One and "Mike Peterson" (J. August Richards) which was where this whole thing started.

Our "Monster of the Week" Eps have given us the procedure for our ragtag, it was only a question of when we ever got back to Centipede and whoever is running it, never a matter of "if".

Our Woman in the Flower Dress is back, with Non-Exploding Extremis soldiers, thanks to the poor sod "Renshu Tseng" from a few episodes back and his non-exploding Extremis Blood.

But Mike Peterson has been improved as well, it was Fitz' Knock-Out Bullet that iced his explosion factor. So, to quote Walter Bishop, there is more than one way to roast a reindeer.

Both Peterson and the new Centipede Soldier-Crooks get blown out easy, and have to eat 50 hamburgers and sleep 5 days per one Mission.

Raina, the Flower Dress Girl, steals a guy named "Edison Poe" (Cullen Douglas) while he is eating his prison lunch. She really doesn't want him, she wants someone/thing called "The Clairvoyant".

Poe knows how to hold her at bay, in other words keep himself alive. Because it seems that everyone who Raina takes an interest in becomes extremely dead- Tseng, the original Centipede Doctor, etc. Who's Next?

These new Centipede Soldiers have more than one Centipede, where Mike only has one. Other than that they are just like Mike- Except for one other thing - They have the Built In TV Eye that Ex Agent Akela Amador had- The one that explodes and makes Peanut Butter and Brain-Jelly Preserves when they disobey.

So - Why does Centipede want Mike? Because he found a way to refrain from exploding that was not related to Renshu Tseng's Blood?

Nope, they didn't want that at all, they wanted something else, and some ONE else.

We've been asking the same question since the Pilot episode. And maybe just maybe we'll get an answer on 7 January 2014.

And the S.H.I.E.L.D. cgi-plane is looking better and better each Ep-But I still think, it would look better with a huge fish-tank where the fuselage got blown open in Episode 1.
