Agents of Nothing

Where the heck do we go from here? This current episode feels rather like a bridge. There was little action and a lot of what seems like set-up for future episodes.

Coulson and his team are running as fast as they can as the U.S. Air Force is moving in and taking over. The Bus is busted, and barely patched together, and Coulson makes it perfectly clear that he is livid with Agent May and no longer trusts her.

By now you should know Fury is not dead but Coulson knows this only by his own faith. Meanwhile, Ward and Garrett are off to raid the most secure facility Shield had to get what goodies are there... Brett Dalton's Ward I like as an Agent of Shield... but the performance in this episode lacked something now that we know he is a villain... perhaps it was that he didn't show himself to be conflicted save with his lines... Dalton might want to work on that a bit.

Too, both Ward and Garrett need to show us they're invested in HYDRA though both scripted dialog and acting... nothing we've seen so far convinces me they are. Clark Gregg, however, does a great job of selling Coulson as a man ready to crack this episode.

Of note: Ruth Negga's performance as Raina continues to shine. She is one of the most interesting villains on the show so far even though she's revealed very little about herself. Her manner shows that she is invested and a believer. Her shock at discovering the true nature of "The Clairvoyant" is believable.
