We were the welcome wagon

Shield had an episode today that they sort of had a horror element thrown in. With a disappearing madman in the plane, it got kind of spooky, with the power off and the team scattered.

The "ghost", Tobias Ford, said that he was sent to Hell, although I kind of like the theory that he was sent to Hel, the Asgardian version of it that actually exists. It would be a nice little reference to it and it actually kind of looked like a hellscape when Simmons was looking into the blast.

I liked how they looked more into the backstory of May and how she got the moniker "the Cavalry". I liked how Coulson defended her and how he himself was there when it happened. While we just got the story of what happened to May, there is still more that can be revealed because the story sounds really interesting: May going into an enemy compound, alone and unarmed, defeats the threat and stops the powered person. How it messed her up is really curious and I really want to know more. While it was good to have an inkling into her backstory it would have been nice to see the whole thing in a flashback.

I also didn't like all of the God stuff brought up. It's fine to have someone's faith explored but it just seemed like too much. First off, the world knows that Thor and his people actually exist and you think, like last episode, more people would believe in Norse mythology since it is literally real. I can sort of understand that she would think "Well if their gods exist, why can't mine" but it just took up way too much of her character that I found it annoying.

+ Spooky setting + Possible Thor 2 connection with Hel + Insight into May - Although more would be nicer - The whole god talk was a nuisance

Final Score: 7.6/10
