Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. may not have swept fans off their feet during Season 1. But this is Season 2, and we're getting ready for the mid-season premiere. Season 2 has been rocking and rolling ever since the first episode. With the Inhumans storyline, better fighting choreography, and stronger characters, this show is shaping up to be one of the best superhero TV shows in a long time.
The Inhuman Project
Let's just take a quick step backwards to remember what happened, and where we will be when the mid-season finale airs. The latest Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. episode is called What They Become. You'll remember that both Raina and Skye under went Terrigenesis and became Inhumans.
And that's about how the first half of Season 2 ended, which, if you're like me, had you punching the TV over and over again and then you watched the episode on hulu another thirty times.
So where are we going to be starting on March 3? I'll fill you in.
This is the synopsis given for the next Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. episode called Aftershocks. It comes straight from the Marvel.com website, and sounds very, very exciting.
After discovering an alien city with ties to his resurrection, Coulson and his team destroyed it before the forces of Hydra could claim its secrets, eliminating the villainous Whitehall (Reed Diamond) in the process. But new threats to the world have arisen, including Skye’s father, Cal (Kyle McLachlan), who now seeks retribution against Coulson for stealing his revenge against Whitehall; a disturbing alliance between former S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Ward (Brett Dalton) and Agent 33; the enigmatic Raina (Ruth Negga), who struggles with her transformation into something inhuman by the alien Obelisk and seeks vengeance; and Skye (Chloe Bennet), who developed mysterious new powers from the Obelisk but whose lack of experience with her new abilities may threaten the safety of those she loves.
Meanwhile, Bobbi (Adrianne Palicki) and Mack (Henry Simmons) begin the next phase of a plan which seems to have grave repercussions for Coulson and his team, who are unaware that there’s another mysterious force moving against them. And as Hunter (Nick Blood) is forced to make the biggest choice of his life, Coulson will find his mission threatened by this shocking endgame.
In the midseason premiere, “Aftershocks,” Coulson’s team must deal with the consequences of their war with Hydra as shocking revelations threaten to tear them apart, and Hydra makes a dangerous move that may involve a traitor in S.H.I.E.L.D.’s midst.
So there you have it. What do you think? I'm unbelievably excited for this next episode. There's so many questions I have like:
- Who did Raina turn into?
- What are Bobbi and Mack up to?
- What are all the other Inhumans up to?
- Will we see the return of Agent Triplett?
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns with Aftershock on March 3 at 9/8c on ABC.
