Did You Know?


It is revealed that Lola is not just the name of Coulson's 1962 red Corvette, but also an acronym which stands for Levitating Over Land Automobile. See more »


Agent 33 uses the repaired face mask to look like several other women, to include Skye. The mask showed it changes the face to include facial hair but since it only covers the face it could not change any other features. Yet as Skye things such as front teeth and hairstyle/length were also changed. See more »


Leo Fitz: [to Skye] Things change. That's what I'm saying. So maybe if you can learn how to control this, then... you could have Avenger-level powers, something like Captain America, even.
Jemma Simmons: I think it best we keep in mind the unstable natures of Skye's power. If there is an Avenger equivalent, right now I'm afraid it's The Hulk.
Leo Fitz: Well, Hulk, saved the world, last I checked.

Re-watch thoughts
22 February 2019 | by noorea-85147See all my reviews

Super fun episode with some dark stuff underneath, the main plot with Agent 33 is very strange but that makes it something new and interesting to see unfold, watching Ming's voice come out of various people was unsettling to say the least! I also enjoyed the "real shield" stuff, though I was always a fan of that story line ( a rather unpopular opinion in the fandom) ep 15 was the one to sell me on it first time watching, on re-watch it helps that I knew where it is headed so I can see all the clues. I'm still not a big fan of how the Skye situation is being handled, they do a much better job in S3 regarding the debate of handling people with powers, here it's rather one sided, and Skye can't shut up about how she should get special treatment for being an agent or throwing shade at anyone who is weary of her powers, get a handle on it then we can talk lady!
