As usual, AoS continues to intrigue me this season. There’s nothing scarier than a bloody robot pulling all the strings.
Fitz continued to torture Daisy, and the moment he appears to be undergoing a form of metamorphosis, we’re shown his anchor to this fake reality – His father. Aida corrected Fitz’s greatest regret which also doubles as his greatest undoing. As though killing Agnes wasn’t enough, strongly advocating for the demise of his former colleagues puts him high on the list of bad guys to ever grace AoS.
Jeffrey Mace, Grant Ward, and Could on go on a mission with the aid of intel to rescue a S.H.I.E.L.D. under captive. The agent turned out to be Tripp, who we last saw in S02 during the advent of Terrigenesis and Inhumans.
The squad lost a warrior today, in the person of Jeffrey Mace: The Patriot. He died trying to save children. His death did have a greener side to it. His death snapped May back to reality, and she in turn activated Daisy’s terrigenesis into an Inhuman while still in Hydra’s hospitality.
An old element had a reintroduction in this episode; the steroid Daisy’s father used in S02 for his strength into Mr. Hyde. I liked the callback. The steroid was used by May to stand up against Mace’s natural strength as the Patriot.
AoS airs Tuesdays on ABC.
