This Tuesday's episode of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was full of interesting things. Discovering May's secret former love life, more personal vendettas against Coulson, new costumes being developed, and, of course, another SHIELD. Wait, another SHIELD?
Let's start out with my favorite- the new developing costume. As we know so far, Skye (or Daisy, whichever you'd prefer) is an Inhuman. But we all know that's all part of the storyline. She is Quake, the superheroine with the ability of being able to manipulate shock waves. Personally, I think of it more as terrakinesis, but we haven't seen her lift up any rocks or anything of the sort, so we can rule that out.
Anyway, she has had somewhat of an on again/off again moment when it comes to controlling her powers. But in Tuesday's episode, instead of letting her powers hurt everyone around her, she focused her power inwardly and, in the process, damaged herself. But all for a good purpose. Y'see, if some of you don't know what Quake really looks like, here's a picture of her and her live-action counterpart (with the gauntlets) below:
From the words of Simmons, these gauntlets are used to contain Skye's powers. And they'll, of course, do more than just contain them; these gauntlets will most likely amplify her control over her powers. But I digress......
Next up, the other SHIELD. So this whole time, there was another SHIELD under our noses? Their alignment kind of comes into question, now that I think about it.
We know SHIELD is the good guy here, but let's ask some questions. Why were Mack and Bobbi keeping it hidden this whole time? And why did Mack have such a dark demeanor when he said, "The real SHIELD"? And why did they wait up to this point to go ahead and take down the curtain hiding this other SHIELD? And, the most important question, how long has this "real SHIELD" been around?
What an episode! Can't wait to see what Quake's full costume will look like. And I certainly can't wait until we finally know the truth behind this "real SHIELD".
