In Which I Review Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D (1x4)
Meanwhile Akela has met with a buyer who takes the diamonds in exchange for an all access levels key card to a building in Belarus. There is a bit of a long tracking segment that really serves no purpose outside of some eyebrow raising bathroom humor and a bit of action but the overall point of it was that Akela managed to send a message to the agents.
--Much better episode than the two previous. The strength of this show is really in Coulson and letting Clark Gregg shine.
--"I live outside the box."
--Akela's final "what happened to him" line to May suggests that she alone recognizes that something other than his "death" at the battle of New York has happened to Coulson. She obviously knew him quite well and can tell that something is off.
--Bromance seduction scene was pretty funny.
--Skye is really starting to bother me. Not because I think she's a double agent or anything but she has this tendency to deliver the cringe worth emotional "You believed in me now I'm going to save you" speeches. Every week.
