Agent Coulson and the rest of the S.H.I.E.L.D. team embarked on a mission to track down a mysterious master thief this week, but like everything else related to Coulson, things weren’t quite what they seemed. The master thief in question was a rogue S.H.I.E.L.D. agent who’d been trained by Coulson! And she was being controlled by someone else!
For those wishing that Agents of SHIELD was a little bit darker in tone, then you may take a liking to this episode. It opens with a creepy scene featuring a group of Jabawakee lookalikes in red masks and business attire with suitcases handcuffed to their arms.
Many viewers have complained on the internets that the fight choreography haven’t been up to snuff, especially when comparing it to other shows. I’m tend to agree as I didn’t really like the fight between Melinda and Akela. TV no longer have any excuses for staging lesser fights than those on the big screen.
The mysterious big bad organisation from the premiere may possibly be back this time as the masterminds behind the heist of what may be an alien formula.
“Eye Spy” is a big step in the right direction, getting further into the history of these characters while laying groundwork for future stories. S.H.I.E.L.D. 7/10.
