Well Marvel A.O.S. fans, tonight our season is coming to an end. Thankfully, not the series from the news we received last week, ABC renewed the show for another season and we will even get a new show in Agent Carter. Now one point of interest to the fans, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is moving to the 9:00 time slot on Tuesday nights in the fall. So make sure to keep your calendar open. The early word on Agent Carter, it will serve as a bridge program between the fall finales and winter premieres of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Once Upon a Time, respectively.
In the early episodes of the season, many fans were not happy with the direction of the show. Most fans expected the show to live up to the expectations of the blockbuster films, that we have come to know and love. Well after a few shows, where we are being introduced to the characters and getting to understand them, many fans were upset. The problem with that, a movie only has 2-2 1/2 hours to go from beginning to end to tell that story. Television can’t be done like that. We have had 21 episodes of the show, that is almost 16 hours of footage. We have been introduced to some great characters and lost some along the way. We were watching when the mighty Thor and Loki took to the big screen and the Agents had to go clean up their mess. We watched the fall out after the events of Captain America: The Winter Soldier and how it effected the team. Now it all comes down to tonight. After tonight’s episode, we will have our season come together. I’m sure though, in true Marvel fashion we will be left with something to think about till next season. Something for the fans to play out about what it could mean. Something to make us all speculate.
In my opinion, I have enjoyed the season very much. From meeting Mike Peterson in the first episode who would become Deathlok, to seeing Nick Fury show up at the end of the second episode to yell at Agent Coulson for breaking his bus. To seeing Lady Sif coming to Earth, sent by Odin to capture Lorelei and get her back to Asgard. Learning what exactly happened to Agent Coulson after Loki had killed him in the Avengers. We have had a very fun and exciting roller coaster ride and tonight we get to see how it all comes together for the season finale.
Let’s recap last week to make sure everyone is on the same page. In a flashback to fifteen years ago, it is revealed that John Garrett (a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent who is a member of HYDRA) pulled Grant Ward out of a Massachusetts juvenile jail after Ward broke out of a military training camp, drove across the country, and then set his house on fire. Garrett gives Ward the choice to either stay in juvi or go become an agent. Ward accepts the offer to become Garrett’s protégé. S.H.I.E.L.D. officers then overpower the local guards, and the elder and now recruited agents leave.
Today, Phil Coulson and his team, Agents May, Triplett, Skye, Fitz, and Simmons, are in a motel outside Los Angeles. They realize that in order to track the location of Coulson’s old plane (now in Garrett’s possession), The Bus, they will need to plug a USB drive with one of Skye’s programs into any computer belonging to Cybertek. Cybertek is one of Aidan Quinn’s many companies, and their database and HYDRA’s are closely linked, so Skye’s virus will have full access. Triplett opens a briefcase containing some of his grandfather’s gear from the Howling Commando’s. The team will use this to break into Cybertek.
Again flashing back fifteen years, Garrett drops off Buddy (his dog) and Ward in the New England woods. The elder S.H.I.E.L.D. agent tells Ward that he had better learn how to be a man and care for himself, and leaves.
Meanwhile in the present, Coulson’s team is infiltrating Cybertek. With headphones that relay Fitz’s and Simmons’ voices to them, Coulson and May go for a job interview at Quinn’s company, posing as young scientists. Presenting their “icer” bullet for the “Night-Night gun” (to which the interviewers are unimpressed) Coulson and May gain access to the facility. Even though they are declined, they still manage to look around the offices – the two S.H.I.E.L.D. agents kill the person guarding the elevators and then take out the guard outside Cybertek’s file storage room. Much to their surprise, however, the files are in paper, not digital form, and they begin to rifle through them. Opening the cabinet for Project DEATHLOK, they realize that Garrett, in 1990, became the first Deathlok, not Mike Peterson as first anticipated. They heave the filing cabinet out the window and zipline down to Triplett, making their escape.
Well here we are, Episode 22, Beginning of the End. The synopsis of the episode is:
Dark secrets are revealed as Coulson and his team put everything on the line to stop Garrett and the forces of Hydra, on the explosive season finale of “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”
