In Review: Agents Of Shield – A Life Earned

This was one of those episodes where you get more plot exposition than you do action, but the little action we do get creates another mystery.

Synopsis: Agent Coulson and the team learn the true intentions behind their capture.

Review: Having been handed over to Kasius in last weeks episode. Daisy quickly begins to figure out the rules of the game and makes an ally. But it is not completely clear what he wants in return. On the lower levels, Coulson and the team are still trying to figure out the origin of the message that they intercepted and wind up running into Deke who shows them to level 35 and reveals the true reason for the Kree’s interest in them.

This was one of those episodes where you get more plot exposition than you do action, but the little action we do get creates another mystery. In a scene toward the close of the story May has a bit of a fight with Sinara and doesn’t fare particularly well. We do learn that May is still alive, but to what end?

We also see a really cool scene involving Daisy, Simmons and Kasius and one of his other Inhuman slaves who can read minds. During the scene, Kasius is trying to establish how many people have come with Daisy from Earth’s past. As thing play out there is a lot of fantastic butt clenching tension as Simmons has to repeat pretty much word for word what Daisy has told Kasius. A task made difficult by the fact that Simmons cannot hear what Daisy is something or hear anything for that matter unless Kasius wishes her too.

It remains unclear as yet to what Kasius is up too. But we do learn that he hates being in the wrecked world and is apparently carrying a great shame around with him, but what is his shame?

Overall. A solid episode with a few shocking reveals and a fantastic cliffhanger that brings back one of our favorite characters into the mix.
