SOOO Yeah, SPOILERS – Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is returning in April with a whole new Marvel’s Agents of H.Y.D.R.A. story-line. The big finale of the current LMD story came to a big exploding conclusion. Many thought this may have been one of the best episodes of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. but I beg to differ. The episode where Fitz gave his live to save Simmons from drowning to death was THE best episode of the entire show’s run. This weeks episode was VERY GOOD and the reason it seems like it’s the best is because the show has been sub-par for the past few years so a VERY GOOD episode seems like it’s the best yet but it really wasn’t. It was Very Good though, more on that next…
Okay. So on last nights Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., the LMD story-line reached it’s critical mass where aagents Daisy (Chloe Bennet) and Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge) take on the LMD’s that had infiltrated S.H.I.E.L.D. then they escape and decide to go into the
Matrix… I mean, Framework to rescue their friends.
We get a glimpse of the Framework world where it’s an America run by HYDRA. In this new Framework world, Coulson is a teacher supposedly teased to be preaching AGAINST The Inhumans, Fitz is some tech rich genius ala Tony Stark with a mysterious woman (hmm), May seems in charge & back in the old S.H.I.E.L.D. HQ – The Triskelion (last seen going BOOM in Captain America: Winter Solider movie), Mack is either back w his love or with Yo-Yo and has a kid (we see him picking up a child’s bike), Daisy is with Grant Ward (Brett Dalton) while Simmons is teased at being dead.
Unfortunately the next half of the half season (?) will be all about Daisy / Skye / Quake & Simmons trying to WAKE their friends from The Framework world which is being run by H.Y.D.R.A. now why did I say unfortunately? Because it’s a Marvel TV version of a comic book issue(s) of WHAT IF: What IF HYRDA ruled the world? Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE a good WHAT IF – but the point of them are ONE OFF Stories that NEVER return and the same here. The Marvel’s Agents of H.Y.D.R.A. world might be AMAZING but they can NEVER go back to it for it to have ANY meaning what so ever unless the show transitions to being just that, a world of Marvel’s Agents of H.Y.D.R.A. in the Framework. So yeah. Too bad but least we can enjoy some viewpoints of a HYDRA run world.
Oh and the big bad, terrible villain of Anton (Zach McGowan) is returning to control his body from a severed head as protector to the Framework in the Marvel
movie / tv universe. Is he to be Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. take on M.O.D.O.K.?! Hopefully they can modify him to be more MODOK and much less the one flat note of Anton, evil Russian agent.
Marvel’s Agents of H.Y.D.R.A. returns on April 4.
