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

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D: Season 4, Episode 7 “Deals with Our Devils” (B)

As I was watching this episode, I started to wonder whether I really need to continue with this show on a weekly basis. It’s hard to give it up though, especially after an episode that started out iffy and then ended up being far more enticing as it went on. It was hard to tell what was going on with Fitz, Coulson, and Robbie as their whereabouts were initially unknown, and them existing in a different dimension far more removed than all the other ghosts we’ve come to know was bad news. As Mac became Ghost Rider and Aida’s said that she would be able to read the book, we were treated to a far more intriguing and cool playback. Seeing Daisy’s ride happen again with Robbie in the front seat trying to convey instructions to her and Fitz planting the idea in Aida’s head made those moments much stronger, and it was pretty awesome to see Aida build a contraption that allowed them to get Fitz and Coulson back and for Robbie to eventually come through. The unfortunate holdovers are that Robbie and Mac now share some dark Ghost Rider secret and Aida became far too intelligent and now might be a danger to everyone around her, ready to rise up against her human overlords. We also have the mystery that came with the man that Simmons helped to thaw before she was hooded and taken back to the team on Director Mace’s orders, something I’m sure we’ll soon revisit.
