Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. “The Things We Bury” this week is an episode that finally gives us more progress on the importance and mystery of the Obelisk. Throwing us all the way back to the time of Red Skull and how Whitehall has been at this for a long while. Once again showing how SHIELD is fighting a war in which HYDRA seems to always be a step ahead of the game.
With this episode Agent Carter makes her appearance on Agents of SHIELD again. Last we saw of her was in the first episode when she first took back the Obelisk. Now she is questioning who was her new prisoner that knew a lot more than h was willing to tell about the items they took from him and the Obelisk. Through this flashback we have now seen that there is more to Whitehall than meets the eye. While the how is still uncertain, the means certainly gives you an idea of why The Doctor calls him a butcher.
