'Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.' Recap: Failed Experiments

5/4/2016 1:10pm EDT
'Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.' Season 3 Episode 19 Recap: Fai
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. heads toward the season 3 finale by setting up several high stake problems. Of course, the most important problem is to un-brainwash Daisy. In addition to that problem, we now need to stop Hive from turning all humans into Inhumans.

Our early prediction is that one member of S.H.I.E.L.D. will unfortunately become a victim of this experiment and gain some not-so-handy powers (Fitz, perhaps?). This Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. finale really makes us nervous.

Failed Mission

Unwisely, Coulson sends Mack and May on a mission to stop Hive. Mack feels guilty about not saving Da...

After three seasons of waiting, our science babies finally went from "it's complicated' to "in a relationship on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Last week, Fitz and Simmons had another major kiss, which confirmed the new era for their relationship. On "The Singularity," after many awkward discussions, Fitz and Simmons stopped fighting it and just had sex.

It was a beautiful moment for long-suffering fans who have wanted and hoped for Fitz Simmons to become a couple since season 1. Some fans may worry that Fitz and Simmons' sudden happiness must mean that one of them will probably fall victim to Dai...

Is It Too Early To Start Thinking About The Emmys?

Dear Emmys, Please Don't Forget These Shows and Actors Come Nomi
It has been well over a month since the Oscars, which means it is time to switch gears to the Emmys. The nominations are usually not announced until the middle of the summer, but it is never early to get the TV Academy’s attention to make sure they do not overlook certain shows and performances. Here are some examples of televisual excellence that the Emmys have yet to recognize (due to newness and/or lack of viewership) but that they really should:

This week's episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. showed more shades of gray to both Lincoln and Malick. We learned that within every good man is a dark side, and within every bad man, there is a mistake that he regrets. Both revelations altered what we have come to know about these two characters.

Lincoln seemed like the pillar of calmness and serenity. Now we have discovered that Lash's reasons for wanting him dead had some legitimacy to it. Malick, on the other hand, showed us that his blind devotion to Hive may have been a mirage all along.

We know very little about Lincoln Campbell, which is a major problem of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D season 3. S.H.I.E.L.D. introduced viewers to him in season 2. Lincoln acted as Daisy's window into the Inhuman world. Not knowing much about him worked when that was his only role. However, since he became a regular character on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and Daisy's love interest, we still have not learned much about him.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. rarely dives into the backstory of its characters, but it usually gives us enough information to piece it together ourselves. The series even gave us enough ...

Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D aired one of the best episodes of the season. It had the right amount of suspense, comedy, drama, action, romance and heartbreak. The members of S.H.I.E.L.D rushed to change the future. They managed to change it a bit, but also learned the inevitability of death, just not always for the person that you think.

The team listens to some radio scanners and hear someone call for Daisy and mention Hydra. They rush to the scene. Earlier, a homeless man named Charles accidentally shares a vision with a store owner named Edwin.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D finally devoted an hour to one of its most under-appreciated members: Mack. It turned into a very interesting look into his life, as well as a way to switch up the agent dynamics.

Welcome to My Life

The loss of Bobbi and Hunter inspires Mack to take some time off to be with his brother, Ruben. Mack's vacation gets cut short when a new underground, inhuman hating group, named the Watchdogs, commits an act of terror. Coulson needs Mack investigating them.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D proved that you can emotionally wreck viewers without killing anyone. As predicted, no one died on this week's episode, well no one of importance. However, the series offered one of the most beautiful farewells in prime time television.

Marvel may gain another cash making idea with Marvel's Most Wanted, but it took away a little lightheartedness that we will truly miss on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

The episode opens with Bobbi and Hunter being held in custody, accused of an act of terrorism against the Russian government. Their interrogator wants proof that the American ...

Tonight's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D episode, "Parting Shot," focuses on Bobbi and Hunter. As many fans know, Marvel plans to make a spin-off that features the divorced but reunited couple. So this might be the beginning of the end for them on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

On the promo for this week's episode, the voiceover mentions that someone says goodbye to S.H.I.E.L.D forever. Fans are lead to believe that this means someone will die. Death is never out of the question on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. However, the announcer carefully chose the words "says goodbye to S.H.I.E.L.D," which makes us think a ...

'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...

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.

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.

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.

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...

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.

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.

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...

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...

'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.

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.

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."

"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).

"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...

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.

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...
