What an awesome Agents of SHIELD episode this week. "Afterlife" was perhaps their best episode, yet. It's been a while since I've been that surprised by an hour of television. Spoilers below. And lots of exclamation points! I was particularly delighted by:
- Coulson and Hunter! Bad options! Awesome.
- Shield Team Battlestar!
- Skye's Dad! Skye's MOM! Reassembled. What! Didn't see that coming.
- Reinforcements! Deathlok! Love the return of Agent Peterson.
- Loaded gun!
- Our bad option: Grant Ward!
- The return of FitzSimmons! And the sandwich.
I'm too often spoiled by episode descriptions and Twitter, but I've been busy and not paying attention. So I went into the episode spoiler-free and I seriously enjoyed the episode more than usual.
