'Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D' Season 3 Midseason Finale Breakdown

12/9/2015 8:26am EST
'Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D' Season 3 Midseason Finale Recap
Last night's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D killed a major character...but not in the way you think. Coulson crossed a line this week that he cannot undo. Though Coulson's actions were totally justified on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, we'll have to wait to see if his actions haunt him in the near future.

"Maveth" packed a lot of action into its short 42 run. It also gave us every emotion in the book, including closure. However, it quickly ripped that away from us in the last couple minutes of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D's midseason finale.

Ward, Fitz, and the Hydra crew start their search for Maveth. Fitz tak...

'Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D' Midseason Spoilers: Someone Wil
Last week, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D had their biggest death of the season...so far. Rosalind died just when Coulson and she found the right professional and romantic groove. Her death caused a chain of events that should rock Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D forever. Going into tonight's midseason finale, Coulson wants blood.

More specifically, he wants Grant Ward's blood. However, the war between these two men might have to go on hold. They're both on another planet with a creature that might have enough power to destroy the world.

Maveth puts a lot of people in danger, not just our beloved Leopold Fi...

'Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 3 Episode 9 Recap And Mi
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D starts its ninth episode of the season, "Closure," with a no-nonsense approach. This set the tone for one of S.H.I.E.L.D's darkest hour yet. The episode revolves around Coulson seeking revenge, Ward seeking closure, and Malick wanting to open the portal to the blue desert planet.

Ways to Die Trying

Coulson and Rosalind finally have their burger dinner, while discussing what to do about Malick. Suddenly, Ward shoots Rosalind; she dies. Then, he calls Coulson to tell him he killed her as revenge for Kara's death. He then sends his assassins to kill Coulson.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D-
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D returns this week for another heart-stopping episode. The series only has two more installments before it takes a hiatus until March. This spells a lot of twists and cliffhangers before Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D wraps for three-ish months.

Tonight's episode, "Closure," brings Grant Ward back at the forefront of S.H.I.E.L.D. The team basically assembles to take him out once and for all. From the promotional video, we know that Ward and Coulson find themselves engaged in an all out battle.

Could this battle involve Rosalind?

'Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D' Season 3 Spoilers: Fitz And Sim
Earlier this week, Entertainment Weekly released some huge news for FitzSimmons shippers. Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D team teased that tonight's episode, "Many Heads, One Tale," involves a major romantic development for Jemma Simmons and Leo Fitz.

Executive Producer Jed Whedon said that he and the team didn't want to drag out the romantic development of the best friends. This season, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D fans have already witnessed a lot of major romantic moments for the possible couple.

In the season premiere, Fitz admitted that he loves Simmons. Last week, Simmons let Fitz know that...

This week's episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D confirms how Andrew became Lash, and gives a little more detail into how and why he changes form. In the episode, May sets out to find out the truth about her ex-husband. She wants to find out if there is any human left in the Inhuman.

The Way We Were

In Hawaii, Andrew and May are happily preparing to start over. She talks about leaving S.H.I.E.L.D because she doesn't want to be a barrier for them. Andrew promises May that this time, he won't lose her.

May and Bobbi
Two weeks ago, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D left two major cliffhangers: Who was Lash, and did Andrew die? Last week, it took a departure from its normal storytelling to focus on Jemma Simmon's visit to another planet. This week, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D resolved the Lash and Andrew mysteries in a huge way.

A Secret Revealed...

After learning Andrew survived his attack, May recruits Bobbi to help her find Ward. By the way, Hunter--as expected--has been removed from the mission. Bobbi and May go undercover to find Werner before Ward can find him.

Werner's fail mission means he's now a must find for...

Coulson really shows his team spirit on this week's episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. He lightly flirts with Rosalind and gives the ATCU everything they want. This new union doesn't sit well with the other members of S.H.I.E.L.D, especially Daisy and Mack.

The episode begins with two Inhumans just living in secret when Alisha (the redhead who could multiply herself from last season) enters their home. The three talk briefly about Lincoln and the Inhumans being hunted. They then mention an email and Lash bursts into their home.

He kills all three of them. Luckily, he didn't kill the real A...

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D put Lincoln Campbell at the forefront of season 3 episode 3, "A Wanted (Inhhu)man." Lincoln appeared on a hand full of episodes at the end of season 2. He is also a main character this season, but we still know very little about him. The third episode of the season showed a little more about his past, but still not enough to fully grasp and understand who is Lincoln Campbell.

We start this episode of S.H.I.E.L.D with Lincoln running from the ATCU. They plaster Lincoln's face all over the news, there is no escaping anyone. Everyone is now alert to Lincoln's abilities a...

Last week, Fitz broke down as Jemma seemed lost for good on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. We expected a long journey before their reunion. S.H.I.E.L.D took a page out of an unexpected book and went the route less traveled. It resolved a major conflict in two episodes. So where do we go from here on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D?

Andrew is called in to assess whether Joey (who we met last week) is a candidate for the Secret Warriors. Andrew has been denying recruits for that project for quite awhile. Therefore, Daisy is not too enthusiastic about his assessment. Her frustration pro...

Once back at headquarters, Daisy attempts to convince Joey that being an Inhuman does not destroy your life, but makes it more interesting. Then, she informs him that he needs to leave his old life behind. Joey becomes aggressive upon learning this news, but Daisy knocks him out.

'Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.' Finale Recap: 'SOS' Ends The Season On
"Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." has not had a perfect season. It's set some wonderful stuff in motion (Inhumans) and also a lot of crap we just didn't need at any point (Real S.H.I.E.L.D.). Also, in hindsight we can't help but feel that Lucy Lawless was vastly underused.

But "SOS" was so rock-solid, so jam-packed with awesome that we can't help but forget every gripe we've had about this season. Because this is how you do a finale. Big action, big twists, plenty of closure and plenty of last-minute wait, WHAT?! moments to keep us anxious for season three.

Given how many balls "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." has been balancing in the air all season long- Inhumans, Real S.H.I.E.L.D., Original Recipe S.H.I.E.L.D., Hydra, Cal, Ward/Agent 33- bringing all those balls together for a big cohesive finale seemed like an impossible feat.

Nope. "Agents" may have waited until the last minute of the last episode before the finale to do so, but we've finally got one grand conflict to end the season on.

4/29/2015 9:30am EDT
'Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.' Recap: 'Avengers: Age Of Ultron' Comes
The "There's a Marvel Movie Coming Out This Weekend" episode is an "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." tradition at this point. "The Dirty Half Dozen" is no different, with another Marvel blockbuster just days from wide release. You know the one we're talking about. Something to do with "Age" and "Ultron."

And while "Avengers: Age of Ultron" isn't as integral to "The Dirty Half Dozen" as "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" was to "Turn, Turn, Turn" last year (it also helps when the crossover episode holds the biggest twist of the season), it was still plenty solid. And plenty Avengers-y.

J. August Richards Really Enjoys His 'SHIELD' Character Deathlok

J. August Richards
Deathlok is a pretty badass character, so to embody him Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. hired a badass actor: J. August Richards, who already saved the world once as Charles Gunn on Angel. We connected with him on Monday to talk about his current heroic alter ego and what it's been like for him to fight the good fight one more time.

Tonight's episode is a particularly big one where Mike Peterson, alias Deathlok, is concerned. "Deathlok and Lincoln have been captured by HYDRA," teased Richards. "And as you know, anything related to HYDRA means doom! That's pretty much all I can say."

'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' Recap: Skye's Dad Is Suddenly A Really
"The Frenemy of my Enemy" is such an apt title. This entire hour of "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." was a mess of weird ties between characters who are supposed to hate each other, but have to put all that aside when Hydra suddenly rejoins the fracas in a major way. The lines aren't so much blurred as they are invisible. And also hidden behind a Helicarrier.

(Also, Hydra's newest head is one Baron Strucker, who just happens to be a part of "Avengers: Age of Ultron"- we're officially in "Age of Ultron" tie-in time, people).

The first of many strange alliance shifts: May is suddenly super sympathe...

"Melinda" is something "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D" has been building to since it first began- the real reason why May's so surly and so hesitant to get out into the field and kick plenty of ass. Also, why she's such a non-fan of her nickname "The Cavalry."

Even with the monumental expectations "Agents" has been setting for this reveal (and, let's face it- that you could kinda figure out the twist a few minutes before it happened), May's origin story didn't disappoint. At all.

This needed to be something big and traumatic, and it was suitably horrifying. Because every time someone affectionate...

'Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.' Recap: Which Two Characters Make A Surp
Last week's "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." was a solid uptick after more than a few episodes that seemed to squander how awesome the Inhumans really are. This week's "Agents" outing, "Afterlife," is several hundred upticks, all in a row. Or maybe a giant rocket blasting upwards.

What we're trying to say is that "Afterlife" was crazy entertaining and overloaded with genuinely out-of-nowhere surprises. Two returning character reveals, oodles of Inhuman world-building and one great big leap forward in that whole S.H.I.E.L.D. vs Real S.H.I.E.L.D. thing.

"One Door Closes" is definitely "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s" way of running a little damage control.

"Agents" has picked up a couple of bad habits in the last few episodes. Mostly, that our New S.H.I.E.L.D.ers (plus Simmons) kinda come off like jerks. So the show rushes in to reassure us- don't worry guys, Simmons legitimately wants to help Skye. Oh, and look! Badass "Captain America: The Winter Soldier"-era flashbacks for Mack and Bobbi!

You've won us over, "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." "One Door Closes" might not be a perfect hour, but there's enough goodness within to keep us thoroughly ente...

3/25/2015 10:17am EDT
'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' Recap: A Tale of Two S.H.I.E.L.D.s
Starting "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." off with a "Pulp Fiction" reference is always a good omen. "Love in the Time of Hydra" opens and Ward and Agent 33 are sitting in a classic middle American diner. There's talk of pumpkin pancakes and pecan syrup.

Then they pull out a couple of pistols and hold the place up. All we needed was for Ward to call 33 "Honey Bunny" and the homage would have been complete (and too obvious, probably).

The chunk of "Love in the Time of Hydra" willing to go bold with an elongated "Pulp Fiction" gag is also the chunk that's by far the most exciting. Ward and 33 are g...

'Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.' Recap: Skye Makes A Truly Terrible Supe
For everyone who enjoys a full two hours of comic book TV on Tuesday nights ("The Flash" + "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D."), "One of Us" was in an unfortunate position. "The Flash" put out a 10/10 grand slam of an episode, and "Agents" is left dwindling in its shadow.

But at least "One of Us" brought lots of new material to the table. Cal's starting up a team of supervillains and May's ex-husband Andrew (Blair Underwood) debuts as Skye's So You've Been Granted Devastating Superpowers guidance counselor.

And at least one of those things is really, really great.

'Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.' Skye's Big Inhuman Secret Revealed

3/11/2015 10:39am EDT
'Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.' Recap: Alien Invasion Free-For-All
Well, Skye's big Inhuman secret lasted exactly one episode. That's probably for the best- we've spent an entire half-season pounding our fists on the table and chanting "INHUMANS! INHUMANS! INHUMANS!" To introduce them, then ease off the throttle with too much secret-keeping would be way too anticlimactic.

So now, thanks to "Who You Really Are" (plus Skye going all earthquakey while most of the cast was in the same room), the majority of "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." knows she's an Inhuman.

And thanks to a heap of exposition from an Inhuman-hunting Kree named Vin-Tak (Eddie McClintock), the te...

'Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.' Midseason Premiere Recap: Oh, The Inhum
Last season, "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." started out a little so-so. Then, halfway through the season, HYDRA happened, and the show rocketed into an incredible action series.

This season, "Agents" has been, again, a little iffy. Solid in some parts, feeble in others. But now we've got Inhumans, and the Inhumans are definitely Season Two's HYDRA moment. Everything from now on should be comic book bliss.

Guess what? It totally is.

After months of playing coy with the Inhumans, "Agents" gives us all the Inhumanity we can handle. No new characters yet- we're sticking with the four core Inhuman ...

SPOILERS. The most spoilery of spoilers; spoilers that dictate the fate of the ongoing Marvel universe and radically change the basic setup of "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D."

Ready? Cool.

Like it says up in the title, the giganto-reveal from last night's "What They Become" is the exact thing everyone was expecting. The secret temple, the obelisk and the alien writing all stem from one thing: the Inhumans.

The mid-season finale of "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." is nearly upon us, and with it comes (presumably- the ads have been pimping it pretty hard) the revelation of what happens when person is divined by the Diviner. Messy things, no doubt.

That's gonna be huge. But we're not there yet- instead, we've got to get through "...Ye Who Enter Here," the penultimate "Agents" hour of 2014.

Sometimes, it does feel like "...Ye Who Enter Here" is something to get through (instead of something to be enjoyed, breathlessly, while munching fistfuls of popcorn), but for the most part it's a blast- crammed wit...

Is it too early to say that "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." is on a roll after finally telling us what that alien gobbledygook was?

Aw hell, let's say it: "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." is on a roll. May it never end.

And from last week, we've upgraded from discovering one secret to discovering 800 billion. In no particular order, let's lay out what "The Things We Bury" taught us about S.H.I.E.L.D.'s current situation:

The Diviner is not a weapon.

The Diviner is a tool to end humanity (except for a select few), from long long ago.

Too often "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." feels like the downtrodden little brother of the Marvel Universe. Sure, it gets to associate itself with big names like "Thor" and "Iron Man," but the movies are the ones hogging all the cool characters (like "Thor" and "Iron Man").

The only toys "Agents" gets to play with are the ones too inconsequential to ever get their own movie.

But then, sometimes you get episodes like "The Writing on the Wall."

Before we start this week's "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." recap, there's something that needs a quick shout-out.

The funny stuff this season has felt a little weak. Mostly it's coming from Coulson, who gets one or two allotted quips per episode. The majority are hammy and not particularly gut-busting. But also not something we'd actively cringe at.

But really, Grumpy Cat? That's a new low, "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." In the future, please refrain from slapping any more Grumpy Cat mugs into anyone's hands, with the expectation that we will laugh at a two year-old Internet meme (that, let's be hone...

It's safe to say that "A Hen in the Wolf House" has wrapped up the first chapter of "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s" second season.

Last night, Coulson and the gang swept up about half the plot points we've been dealing with all season, and wrapped them up in a nice neat bow.

Skye doesn't know about her dad? She does now. Coulson keeping Skye in the dark about his brain drain? Not anymore. Simmons undercover with HYDRA? Doubt we'll see any more of that for a while. Fitz hallucinating his own private Simmons? Given that Simmons is back, we've probably seen the last of that too.
