I have to be honest and admit that I needed a little refresher about what happened last season on Agents of SHIELD. However, after looking up some details I had completely forgotten, I have to say that I liked the Season 3 Premiere.
I had to get over the weirdness that Skye is now officially calling herself Daisy, but other than that I think they set up the new season nicely. SHIELD is trying to protect the growing Inhuman population, while there are new “enemies” who try to neutralize them instead. One is the new task force called ATCU (Advanced Threat Containment Unit) and the other one a powerful blue monster-guy named Lash. Let’s break it down though:
- I think seeing
SkyeDaisy fully embrace her powers is cool. Her helping the new guy Joey (who did a wonderful job of playing the confused normal guy who gets thrown into craziness) was really interesting to see but I am glad that she still wants Lincoln‘s help. I mean she’s good with Mack as her partner, but better with Lincoln. Those two pairing up and combining their powers is just awesome.
- Coulson‘s meeting with Rosalind, head of ATCU, was great! I mean we now know that ATCU isn’t all bad, but I hope it doesn’t turn out that they are like the real/new SHIELD or something like that.
- Bobbi and Hunter are cute, but they need to decide what they want. Are they together or not?
- Can we all just appreciate how amazing Fitz/Iain De Caestecker was in this episode? Having to save Jemma really made him a badass and I never thought I would see him go on dangerous solo missions. The final scene where he just screams at the Monolith was brilliant!
- So Jemma is not dead. Which we already knew, since she’s still part of the cast. It seems she’s somewhere across the universe and I want to know how they’ll get her home!!!
- May and Ward were noticeably absent this week. It was already shown in the promo that Ward would return next time, but the team definitely needs Melinda May on their side. How can she just not come back from her vacation?
- The events of Sokovia (Avengers 2) were mentioned a couple of times and I think it’s always nice that they keep integrating the whole Marvel universe.
- Just a little final question: Who exactly is funding SHIELD now?
I know this was rather short, but my main opinion came across. What did you think of the Season 3 Premiere?
