Want to drink and don't have a reason here's a drinking game for you everytime they mention something from the cinematic universe ( like a character,an organization, the attack on New York,source of powers or they show a clip from the movies ) take a shot and please use caution if you watch the 1st 2 episode you might get sick.
The episode starts with an explosion on their plane and Coulson hanging for his life then flashback to the past.
The teaser is pretty good it leaves you with a lot of questions.
Meanwhile 19 hours ago we see Skye getting on a plane and Grant and Coulson arguing over her while May just sits there and watches.
BTW take a shot Stark is mentioned.
Then Skye brings her bags to the ship while Leo Fitz and Jemma Simmons welcome her with open arms Agent Grant Ward gives her an evacuation map of the plane wow subtle dude and remember this is a plot point.
And them Coulson comes and informs her about the mission and the 0-8-4.
And take 3 shots for an Asgardian,the Chitauri specter and the hammer.
So they are off to Peru in order to investigate the 0-8-4 quick question what are the most stereotypical things that you I know or except about Peru if you said Pre-Incan Temple or just pyramid(sure looks like a pyramid),rebels and army.Congratulations we get all 3 of them.
Meanwhile Grant and May talk and we are giving more clues about May and also a running joke.
Grant proves how much a badass he is by taking the device out of the wall and beating all the rebels by using some sort of cold device if you call this character boring you get a punch from because he's awesome and plus he was the patience to deal with Leo ,Jemma and Skye give him some credit.
And we finally get explanation for the object prepare your glasses
We something that was predestined to happen the team fight from the begging there seemed some issues with this team and Grant can't take it anymore even says that he been trained for solo ops so he can't handle this especially when they don't respect his orders and aren't trained for field work.Then Skype says this
What follows is an relaxing montage the nerds are working ,Phil and Camilla are his room,Grant and Skype are talking (they aren't using Skype),May is flying the plane and the soldiers are also relaxing.
Everything seems fine but Coulson and Grant sense that something is up and what you know it the soldiers and Camilla betrays the team
But she makes one mistake she ties them up in the cargo hall together
So you know the drill they make a plan, May uses the car to bust the lab doors in order for them to enter ,they grab some gear and he finally catch up with the teaser and I have to admit the action in this part is pretty suspenseful they made a hole the plane with 0-8-4 in order to reach the level where Coulson is held as well the 0-8-4 there's fight in the cockpit as well as in the depressurized compartment and the plane is a head dive.
Remember when I said the brochure play a big role well here it is.
And apparently the Slingshot protocol involves the destruction of the 0-8-4 witch is stupid this an advanced piece of human technology that is similar with Iron Man's laser and you are going to destroy it, after the alien attack you are supposed to search to advanced tech and study it not destroy it.BTW guess how are they going to get rid of it just one image says it all.
Near the end of the episode Skype get a message from someone that knows she's inside S.H.I.E.L.D. , i think that this sets up another storyline for the show also she will be trained by Grant in order to become an agent i am guessing that this will play with her loyalty .At the end she confirms her allegiance to the Rising Tide.
But it also has to many references (with a score of 10 shots watch with 1st at your own risk ) i kinda liked the in the 1st episode but here it's too much would mind if they something that wasn't appeared in the movie something obscure from the comics or from the next movie.I want something unique and familiar from this series not recycling from the movies.
Final Score:3/5 Pretty Entertaining
