Taking place during the events of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, "Turn, Turn, Turn" gives viewers of The Winter Soldier a necessary and satisfying followup that expands on the aftermath of the film.
Again, do not read more if you have not seen the episode! Now, Grant and Garrett are apart of HYDRA! Completely did not see the twist coming! Bill Patxon has been my favorite part of the series of late, and him turning out to be apart of HYDRA is a little disappointing since I liked him character so much, but Paxton is also an awesome villain as he crews every second of his screen time.
With the fall of SHIELD, Agents of SHIELD is going to have to take an entirely new direction. No longer will we have SHIELD as a big organization that it once was. The possibilities are endless and exciting!
Ward's action scene was great, although compared to the incredibly superior ones that I witnessed several hours earlier that day in The Winter Soldier, it is not the most impressive. But in terms of TV action scenes, I have yet to one better this year.
Not surprisingly, May says that she was working for Fury to keep an eye on him in case he figures out how he came back from the dead. However, the tension of knowing that HYDRA has infiltrated SHIELD made the scene more suspenseful nonetheless.
My only issue with the episode is that one scene with Skye and Ward when Ward finally admits that he loves Skye. While it was a nice character moment, it was a little cliched in terms having a romantic moment during a dangerous situation.
As for the utterly shocking ending with Ward killing Hand, that was completely unexpected. Not only did one of the top agents in SHIELD go down, Ward is the one that did it. However, Hand handing over the gun to Ward for him to shoot Garrett did not make the most. I know she wanted to dispose of him, but that seemed a little out of place. My only concern is that Hand and Ward set the whole thing up to trick Garrett, but considering what happened in the most recent episode, that is unlikely. On a side note, in retrospect, the series seemed like it was stalling until The Winter Soldier was released so that it could enact its true plan of chronicling life after the fall of SHIELD. Coulson's secret of how he survived was given resolution and we did have the awesome Asgardian crossover, but there were some generic network TV type episodes in-between, which added little to the overall story. Fortunately, with the Winter Soldier is finally giving Agents of SHIELD an important purpose in the Marvel universe. Also, you gotta like Garrett referencing Sitwell recruiting HYDRA agents in SHIELD, and how the picture above basically symbolizes how SHIELD is broken.
Overall: 9.9/10- With yet another incredible episode, Agents of SHIELD fully displays how great the series can be as it points towards an exciting new direction that series is taking with the Fall of SHIELD. One more thing, "Hail HYDRA!"Note: I have already scene the most recent episode and my review for that will be coming Monday.
