Shield comes back to us with an amazing episode. Everything from the character moments, to the writing and even the effects were incredible.

The several different story lines in this episode were well written and seamlessly blended to make a fun, enthralling piece. The best part about these story lines is that they all take place at around the same time so that it seems much more cohesive.

Each character that their own great moment. May had a good episode where she had to go alone through a bunch of situations. Her torture scene was awesome as she basically shrugs off being stabbed. Simmons was hilarious as she over prepared for her lie about her being Coulson's daughter in order to blend in. Ward had to deal with the fact that Coulson knows about he and May. His scene with him trying to turn on the holotable was pretty funny cause I didn't really think about how difficult it actually would be. His entrance into the villa where he takes out a bunch of bad guys was pretty awesome. Fitz had a good time as he showcased his great American accent and had to deal with being in the field again, albeit without Ward their to back him up. Coulson was fun too as he had to deal with Simmons' elaborate, embarrassing lie. His time with Ward in the field was fun too as they have to figure out what happened to the train. Finally, Skye was really important as she had to deal with the fact that she was an 0-8-4, she found out the Mike was alive but truly a weapon for the Clairvoyant and she was shot in the gut by Quinn. They are going to have to try and save her so maybe this is going to link up to how Coulson was saved.

The effects for Mike's prosthetic leg was pretty good. It was really cool to have the Stan Lee cameo. I also really like The Incredible Hulk reference when Coulson said that he could make Ward guard Blonsky's (The Abomination) cryo cell.

+ Very good writing and pacing + Character moments + Deathlok! + Stan Lee cameo + Abomination mention

Final Score: 9.4/10
