Synopsis: The truth behind Fitz’s turn could bring down all of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Review: The story arc concerning the Framework and Jemma and Daisy’s attempts to get everyone out of it takes on a sad turn.
While leading a mission to one of Hydra’s re-education centre’s Mace aka The Patriot makes the ultimate sacrifice, but in doing so he contributes to waking Agent May up.
Meanwhile at Hydra HQ Fitz is beginning to have doubts about his Frankenstein ways, but for sake of appearances carries on playing the game.
Daisy who is still incarcerated having been brutally tortured catches a lucky break in learning that the person in the cell next to her is Holden Radcliffe. Daisy manages to get Radcliffe to provide her with information about a back door out of the Framework, but can he be trusted?
This instalment of the Framework pulls some of the threads together as we see various characters begin to wake up to their true identities. And the final scene is one that fans have been waiting a long time for. I.E. seeing the real Agent May return.
Talking of May. Her fight scene with The Patriot was awesome spectacle and fun to watch. But I don’t think any of us really doubted who would win.
It was also good to see a guest appearance from Trip who was a fantastic character from the shows first season who sadly never got to be a series regular.
It’s apparent that Jemma has managed to awaken Coulson and some of the others on her team. The only exception being Mack, who will be utterly devastated when he does awaken from the effects of the framework. Which explains why Jemma asked not to take him on the mission.
It will be interesting and fun to see how things develop in the coming weeks as Fitz slowly begins to realise what he has done while under the influence of the Framework. The amount of guilt for the heinous acts he has committed will likely be devastating for his character.
