Synopsis: Coulson, Mack and Fitz try to locate and neutralise a rogue group looking to stop Inhuman Registration worldwide, Simmons and Dr. Radcliffe have only a short time to save May before she succumbs to her illness.
Review: After a short break due to the presidential debates. Agents Of Shield returns with a highly charged episode, which sees an extremist group using an EMP to take out pretty much every major City until they are given what they want. Which is a stop to registration of Inhuman’s.
Coulson, Fitz and Mack are sent out to track the source and put an end to the EMP attacks.
Caught unawares in the middle of one of the attacks is Yo Yo who puts herself in harms way to save a few people that are caught in the middle when the terrorist come to find her.
In LA Daisy is still hanging with Ghostrider when the EMP takes out the city, which in turn forces them to race across town to save Ghostrider’s young brother from a particularly salty part of town.
While all of this is happening. Simmons and Radcliffe have to take some radical action in order to save Agent May. And the cure is quite literally a death sentence.
Some really good stuff in this episode.
I particularly enjoyed Fitz having to employ field science in order to trace the EMP. The moment where he gets the team to manufacture their own compass’s with bits of cork, a dish filled with water and a needle was great fun and educational for younger viewers who may or may not have been in the boy scouts.
I also enjoyed Yo Yo’s part in the story.
Though we are left with a few unanswered questions such as why are the Watch Dogs all of a sudden international and who other than the senator who we briefly glance at the end is pulling their strings.
