Grant gets his "Absolution"
20 March 2017 | by XweAponXSee all my reviews

Everything that led up to this kicked me in the rear. "All Inhumans were made for a specific purpose" - Lincoln. What is Lincoln's purpose? We find out here.

It's "Follow Yo Yo's Cross" - As we already knew DaisySkyeQuake had seen it floating in a quin-jet before blowing up. That's what she gets got letting herself get touched by an Inhuman who could cause people to see "their own deaths".

This episode presents us with "Free Will vs Predestination" or rather, Free will vs Determinism. My vote always goes to Free Will, and thankfully Daisy's Free Will was stymied by Lincoln's.

But this episode puts a Lid on the Grant Ward tale, and in such a way as to redeem himself. Of course, he is no longer Grant, but Hive/Maveth- But Maveth's unique talents allowed him to actually be Grant, one last time- And to remember things he had done as Grant that were good. Meanwhile, Hydra finally gets iced. But as you know, there are new bad guys, watch out for Watchdogs, Ghosts, and guys with flaming skulls- and "life model decoys"
