Goofs

Agent Ward takes aim at a deer from a distance of 1800 meters with a TAC-50 rifle. The image of the deer almost completely fills his telescopic rifle scope. The scope he is using is not nearly powerful enough to magnify the image of the deer to that size. See more »

Quotes

John Garrett: There it is - The face of our future. Mr. Quinn's the poster boy for our new enterprise.
Grant Ward: Not sure how that's supposed to work. He's also an international fugitive, accused of a laundry list of crimes.
Ian Quinn: Accused by S.H.I.E.L.D., of whom I've been a vocal critic for years. Now S.H.I.E.L.D.'s gone down in flames while I rise from the ashes, all charges dismissed and my sterling reputation restored.
John Garrett: I knew there was a reason I didn't rip out that silver tongue of yours.

It's a weakness.

This episode gave us a good backstory into how Garrett recruited Ward, and a great job getting to the end of the season's plot.

Let's start with Ward, we saw why he truly believes and stays with Garrett. He was pulled out of juvi and trained him to be a survivor. It was really depressing when Garrett told Ward to kill his dog. As a dog owner with a well trained, happy, friendly dog, I could never do that and it looks like Ward couldn't either. However, the dog was still seen through the scope of a rifle so it was difficult to tell whether it was Ward or Garrett who pulled the trigger and even if the trigger was even pulled as it transitioned into a different scene.

Having the team infiltrate Cybertek this episode was real fun as Coulson and May acted like Fitz and Simmons. It was also a very good twist that the first subject in the Deathlok program was Garrett. As explained in the show, Garrett wants the Tahiti drug for himself. It was also good that the team was split up as Fitz and Simmons went off on their part of the mission. There was great acting with Dalton, de Caestecker and Henstridge as FitzSimmons was dropped in the ocean, in a submersible pod though, by Ward. This kind of made me doubt Ward killed his dog because while he left them there to die, he doesn't know for sure if they will, just that they are out of the way.

I got to say, Raina is still creeping me out with her over curiosity in powered people. I also cannot take Deathlok seriously.

+ Ward's backstory + Cybertek break in + FitzSimmons dropped in the ocean + Is there still good in Ward? - Raina and Deathlok

Final Score: 9.1/10
