On the jet Coulson tells Ward if anything goes wrong he'll spend rest of career in Alaska, doing night shift on Blonsky's cryo cell. Blonsky refers to Emil Blonsky, aka the Abomination, the main enemy from The Incredible Hulk (2008). See more »


The train is traveling in the Northeast Italy from Verona to Zagreb (Croatia), but it's impossible to see the "Tre Cime di Lavaredo" from that route, since those peeks are deep in the Alps near Cortina d'Ampezzo, and can't be seen from any train. See more »

Breathtaking Episode
3 June 2016 | by See all my reviews

The intensity of the episodes keeps rising and this is the rollercoster on which intensity reaches a climax. Each character's own story on the train is played out in turn and it works beautifully to build mystery and intrigue throughout. The episode has many great elements: the ingenious plan to locate Quinn which gets us hyped, amazing ninja action sequences from May, the disturbing return of Mike Peterson and the bloody ending. It is hard to believe afterwards that in was all contained in just 40 minutes.

It's one of those "hanging on a thread" story lines where the plan goes awry and every team member has to improvise. It's interesting to see how they handle it. Meanwhile, the clairvoyant becomes even more sinister as we get the impression he is in no hurry to kill any of members of Coulson's team. Implying that whatever his plan, it goes far beyond simply creating soldiers for personal use without the nuisance of Shield on his back.

So yeah, just a shame some of the later episodes weren't as good as this one.
