No agent is that important. Coulson is.

Following the good twist ending in the last episode, the team goes on
the hunt for Coulson. Thankfully in this episode, I actually like
Let's first start with what Coulson went through. The memory machine
that he goes through allows a great insight into what happened to him.
Apparently, he went through a procedure that messed with his brain.
According to Dr Streiten, he left his will to live and they tried to
give it back but I think it was more than that, like trying to erase
the memory of what they did to him. I did like the little Iron Man
reference that happened too, if you caught it. Po is killed with a
sonic weapon via a phone. The effect caused his veins in his head to go
dark blue and for Po to go rigid and then die. This sounds like a more
lethal version of the paralysis machine Stane used in Iron Man.
For Skye's part in this episode, she actually proved to be useful and
had a fun storyline. Once she is kicked off the plane, she (almost) had
the freedom to do whatever she wanted to find Coulson. Her
interrogation of Heubel's character was fun, as she acted as Agent May
and actually disarmed a security guard. She looks like she could be a
good agent, as long as she stays focused on the task not on her
I liked the rest of the team's moments too. Ward interrogating Van Chat
was awesome as he showed that he is willing and able to do anything for
his team. May was the one who confirmed that Skye shouldn't be on the
plane, which is first seen of her dislike of Skye, but actually shows
that May values Skye and knows how she works best.
One complaint I have on this episode is Victoria Hand. I sort of liked
her in the previous episode she was in but in this one she is
constantly stonewalling Coulson's team. When Skye finds good proof of
where Coulson is, she goes with a different plan. I have a feeling
she's a double agent or a traitor or just doesn't want Coulson back.
+ Insight into Coulson's recovery + Skye's plot in this episode + The
rest of the team searching for Coulson - What is Victoria Hand doing?
Final Score: 8.8/10
