What I’m Watching: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D: Season 3, Episode 10 “Maveth” (B)

This is the last time we’ll see this show for a while since “Agent Carter” is going to be taking over through the beginning of March. There’s plenty to think about from this hour, though I’d also like to see things move on a bit from where they currently are. There is no reason why Grant Ward should still be alive, yet everyone continues to think that it’s a good idea to just wound him and ensure that he suffers like he has caused others to suffer. Coulson had the chance to take him out and did a pretty good job up until the point that he nearly didn’t make it back through the portal and somehow let Ward slip back through, now possessed by that inhuman who had taken over Will’s body. It seemed for a while like Fitz was going to be able to get Will back through, but fortunately Fitz realized that Will was no longer alive and that he had been traveling with an impostor the whole time. This show’s crowded cast came in handy as they went in to the rescue, with an eager Joey tagging along and figuring out just what he can do to carry his weight. Simmons letting Andrew out to save her seemed like a good idea at the time, but it appears that Lash took out every one of the inhumans in the chambers next to him, proving that he can’t be controlled. All this and more sure to be slowly resolved when this show returns in March.
