Title: S.O.S (Part 1 & 2)
Original Airdate: 12-5-15
Season 2 of ‘Agents Of S.H.I.E.LD.’ is considered to be an improvement from Season 1, however the season finale blows away any comparisons to its initial season and solidifies the show as one of the most interesting and nuanced shows that successfully blends super hero action with an engaging drama. Titled ‘S.O.S’, the two-part Season 2 Finale aired back to back as one lone episode, and in some ways, was move effective in pushing forward the story of the shared Marvel Cinematic Universe much more than a recent film set in the same world. With betrayals, the reveal of a clear antagonist, tying up loose ends and an intense cliffhanger ending, ‘S.O.S.’ shocks and awes as Season 3 cannot get here soon enough!

Episode Title: Scars
Original Airdate: 5-5-15
It’s a post ‘Avengers: Age Of Ultron’ Marvel Cinematic Universe, and ‘Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ does not shy away from acknowledging that fact. The penultimate episode of Season 2 titled ‘Scars’ not only makes references to the events of the film, but the characters themselves even analyze those events to get their point across in this episode. It’s a bold move but it pays off, as the show uses those events to further their own story and still make connections that answer a few questions and add to both the movie and the show. Although, maybe not enough to make the movie better. Fair warning: this Review of the latest episode of ‘Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ will contain many major SPOILERS for ‘Avengers: Age Of Ultron’, (my Spoiler-free Review can be found here) so if you haven’t watched the movie and don’t want to be spoiled… be wary!

Original Airdate: 3-31-15
‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ comes back to true form after the misstep of last week, with a great episode that has action, nostalgia, exposition, more Avengers references, and some cool reveals. Flashing back to the events that affected S.H.I.E.L.D. directly after the story of ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’, Episode 15 titled ‘One Door Closes‘ shows us exactly how the Edward James Olmos’ Gonzalez came to head up the real S.H.I.E.L.D., how they were formed and why exactly they disagree with Coulson’s methods. The episode also takes Skye deeper into her Inhuman origins with drastic changes to the overall status of the show thus far.
