With the DVD release date of Sept. 9 for Season 1 of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., there's just enough time to watch a couple episodes every day before season 2 begins! And so, a binge rewatch is in order.
And from the beginning, there will be spoilers!
END OF THE BEGINNING
This is the one. The episode leading up to Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
An conspiracy is rising. We knew Winter Soldier would deal with that, but had no idea what the scope of things would be.
This does feel like a chapter in a larger story, now.
So much happens in this story:
* Deahtlok strikes.
* Garrett manipulates.
* Blake helped before getting smashed by Peterson.
* Sitwell has to catch a boat. And by “boat” he means “I'm in a movie, y'all!”
* The casting of the Clairvoyant (Brad Douriff, which, if he WAS the Clairvoyant, would be inspired casting, and just being a red herring making it even MORE inspired casting!) fooled us almost as much as the clues about Thomas Nash fooled the crew of the Bus.
What? Holy cow! Ward just shot him!!!
Good, good, stuff. And it sure does make me excited for the Captain America: The Winter Soldier movie.
We complained that there was no One Shot to include in the Captain America: The Winter Soldier Blu-ray…
THIS is the one shot! It just happens to be a a bunch of twenty-two 42-minute chapters long one shot!
