The third season of Agents of SHIELD has been upping the ante with the Inhumans dilemma. Throw in conspiracies within ACTU linked to HYDRA (inevitably), Simmon’s sojourn on the blue planet & the heightening of the Coulson-Ward feud – finally, Agents of SHIELD is providing some scifi-based competition to CW’s Arrow and The Flash.
It still has its dodgy moments – especially with regards to the creature that HYDRA were trying to bring back to Earth from the blue planet – too many questions to be addressed. But it does push this season’s arc into overdrive – although the denouement to this episode was mystifying, to say the least. Hopefully, when the series restarts in March, there will be more answers than questions.
