In Review: Agents Of Shield – The Last Day

Coulson and the team learn that the most unexpected person from S.H.I.E.L.D.'s past could hold the key to preventing the Earths destruction. 

Synopsis: Coulson and the team learn that the most unexpected person from S.H.I.E.L.D.’s past could hold the key to preventing the Earths destruction.

Review: At the tail end of last weeks episode Agent May learned that Robin the young girl that could see across time had survived the apocalypse and was still having visions about S.H.I.E.L.D. and its team members. The episode picks things up from that point and adds a few flashbacks to the final days of the Earth’s existence in the 2020’s.

While Agent May, Coulson, and the others try to unravel and make sense of Robin’s visions in hopes of finding a way back to their past. Mack, Yo-Yo, and Flint run into problems of there own. As they recover the stash of weapons and tech that Fitz left for them. They spot a Kree venting a gas into level 10 in order to attract the alien creatures that crave human flesh. Which means that Flint, Mack, and Yo-Yo must do all they can to save as many people as they can.

This was a really cool episode with loads going on. But the standout moments in terms of character arc and beats was Agent May’s scenes with Robin. Ming-Na Wen gets a lot more to do than just pilot the ship and beat up bad guys. She gets to play a mother figure to Robin in both the 21st century and in the wretched future that they have ended up in. Willow Hale puts in an awesome performance as the older Robyn. She captures Robin’s vulnerability wonderfully well and her scenes with Agent May are compelling. It was great that May gets to learn that she is far more than the warrior and pilot. 

The close of the episode sees Kassius and Sinara poised to pounce. But the good news is. There is a way for the agents to get home. But they’ll need Flints help to do it.

Overall. A fantastic episode with plenty of questions and ideas for fans to ponder until next weekend.
