Amazing! (wish I could put in all caps but IMDb won't let me :P)
10 December 2014 | by nmgtheoSee all my reviews

This is by far the best episode of this show ever. I actually found myself thinking: "Is this really Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D?" This was one of the most action packed episode yet. Seriously, if you look away for a second you will probably miss something. And I'm not exaggerating there. This episode was spectacular. They had the courage to introduce plot points and cause events that they haven't so far in the series. This may even top some of the movies based on the stakes being so high. This truly shows what Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. can do. I can stand on its own. Instead of being secondary to the movies, is has become a kick-starter to the movies. The ending is amazing and has a very, very significant impact for the upcoming movies and of course the rest of the season. It was so action packed it had enough for several episodes. It took me a while to realize: they still have at least 10 new episodes left.
