In Review: Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. – Lockup

As Robbie Reyes struggles to control The Ghost Rider, S.H.I.E.L.D. infiltrates a high security prison

Synopsis: As Robbie Reyes struggles to control The Ghost Rider, S.H.I.E.L.D. infiltrates a high security prison to unravel the secrets that haunt them all.

Review: Daisy is back with S.H.I.E.L.D. but only for the one mission, but seemingly she is still not right in herself and continues to be suicidal, which endangers the mission.

Also putting the mission at risk is Robbie Reyes who is struggling to keep The Ghost Rider at bay, which could prove potentially sticky for S.H.I.E.L.D. politically.  A fact, which the new director comes face to face with by the close of the episode.

Coulson and the gang break into a prison in order to rescue Robbie’s uncle before the ghost scientist can get to him so she can have him translate the book, which pretty much caused everything to go pair shaped to start with.

Meanwhile Jemma is trying to hide some secrets from the lie detector test and luckily manages to get herself out of any further testing thanks to some political manoeuvring with Jeffrey Mace, who seems to be shrewd enough to give her some rope.

This for me was a solid outing for the team, but I do think they probably need to start bringing Daisy back into line with the rest of the team or start actually dealing with her issues as apposed to teasing us with them week in and week out.

The stuff with Ghost Rider continues to be interesting in regards to his family connection to the Ghosts and such, but I have to wonder if S.H.I.E.L.D. are going to be able to keep him in line given how much control the spirit of The Ghost Rider has on him.
