Let's start with who continues to be the best part of this season: Kyle MacLachlan. We first get a look at what is name is, Cal, and who Skye could be, which is later confirmed in the episode. Seeing him talk with Skye is amazing as you see the emotions boil over as you can tell how much he wanted to be a father as well as how much he wants his family back together. It was also awesome that we could see his rage come into play too with Coulson and Whitehall. Speaking of which...
We finally got to see Whitehall get his comeuppance and while I do wish that Cal was the one to kill him, I'm also kind of happy that he didn't because he would've been either completely savage or make it last for days. If he went with either, he would've lost Skye forever and I'm glad that Skye sort of wants him to be better.
We also get some fun scenes with Bobbi and Hunter. I especially love Hunter's line, "Join Shield, see exotic places, meet new and interesting people...and kill them". Great reference to a great movie. I am really starting to love Hunter in this show.
There was a couple things that bothered me in this episode. The first is the opening scene with the Bus being chased by missiles. While it was badass with May evading them and leaving a decoy for them it still made no sense when the Hydra fighters saw where the missiles hit. Like, there was no wreckage, just big clouds of smoke. This is a massive plane your targeting, theirs going to be a ton of debris. Another big criticism is the death of Trip. I loved Trip as he brought so much swagger to this team. However, I will say that I sort of saw this coming as he wasn't included in the main cast for this season. This will definitely affect the team and I am very curious to see how everyone reacts. Nonetheless, it just seemed like his whole role this season was to die and show the difference between Trip and Skye/Raina.
Let's get to the big cliffhanger as well as the name drops that came up in this episode. We first heard the names Cal, for Skye's father, Skye's birth name: Daisy and finally the last nail in the coffin: Skye/Daisy has superpowers! This all means one thing: Skye is Daisy Johnson aka Quake! Not only that but we also get the explanation of how she has her powers: Skye and Raina are Inhumans! What an amazing new storyline to introduce. WIth Fox in control of mutants, this is a great way to introduce people born with powers and the way they impact the world.
But Skye and Raina are not alone. There appears to be others as we see that there is another Inhuman out there, who has no eyes...weird... but it seems pretty clear what part 2 of season 2 is going to be and I am pretty excited because powers are always fun.
+ Quake! +MacLachlan +Whitehall's end +Fun scenes +Inhumans -Opening bothered me - Trip's death
Final Score: 9.3/10
