In last week’s season opener, Coulson is now in charge of the new SHIELD trying to save the world, while a new Absorbing man appears and tries to take hold of a very important weapon that can help a former enemy from the beginning of the world of SHIELD.
In this week’s episode, called ‘Heavy in the Head’, Coulson makes a bold move to save his team while the Hydra makes a move.
May comes to help Hunter, but she leaves him to go after Kreole leaving Hunter to get taken in by the government.
At a diner, May witnesses a side effect of Kreole touching the 084, a poor waitress turning into stone and dying. Kreole is finding that his powers are going down the tubes because of the 084. And look who comes to talk to Kreole? None other then Raina. The pain in SHIELD’s side that never goes away. She tries to get Coulson to see that she wants to help him.
Hunter gets dropped off somewhere in the middle of nowhere and surprisingly Talbott comes to take him. Probably to question him about Coulson. I’m sure he wasn’t too happy about his time with Coulson. Talbott offers Hunter a deal and it looks like he might do it. Wouldn’t be the first time someone stabbed Couslon in the back.
Hunter returns back to SHIELD and tells him about the deal. He’s up to no good as he doesn’t tell Coulson about the money. It looks like he just joined SHIELD for the money because he’s after not only his but the 2 agents that died. Supposedly for ‘their family’. Someone is a little greedy.
Skye talks with Coulson about the symbols on the 084 and that it’s the same ones that were on the alien coffin that saved both of their lives. Too bad Coulson has enough on his plate to worry about those symbols. You just trying to get Hunter from the military and finding out who Absorbing Man is working for.
Skye is itching to get out and help May but Coulson keeps her close to the vest. It’s obvious that she means more to him then any other agents and maybe he’s too worried that something will happen to her on the field.
The group is able to figure out where Kreole is and Coulson is reluctant to help Hunter because of his meeting with Talbott. But he lets him go because he’s desperate. And it proves to backfire because at the earliest opportunity Hunter takes down Skye and May so that he can follow Kreole and the 084 on his own.
Hunter cause chaos as he tries to kill Kreole himself and it allows Raina to get away with the 084 but Coulson is able to take down Kreole before he kills Hunter. And of course, Coulson gives Hunter one more chance because of his desperation.
Looks like Raina has a new master and they have 084 but what they want with it is still up in the air.
Coulson meets with Talbott with a deal. He gives him Kreole (and other things that make him look good) while Talbott backs off of SHIELD.
Mack tries to help Fitz with his problem and with the DNA test from Kreole. And Mack is able to figure out what Fitz is getting at. He had made something in the past to take down Kreole.
The team continues to tiptoe around Fitz trying to help him without patronizing him. He continues to talk to himself aka talking to Simmons. And it might lead to some bad news as he steals DNA results from Kreole.
Skye/May know that there is something wrong with Coulson and he admits that he’s been fighting his ‘episodes’. May tells him to let go. And he does, he starts drawing those symbols on the wall while May takes pictures.
In next week’s episode, Coulson and the team go out and try and recruit members for their team while running into an old friend that now works for Hydra.
