This season of Agents of SHIELD seems to be flying by. The menace of the Shrike and the mystery of Sarge are progressing, bit by bit, as the team tries to figure out what’s going on and FitzSimmons tries to get home.
The first episode of Daredevil’s third and final season set up the new status quo for most of the major characters, and introduced a new one. “Please,” the second installment, moves everyone further along their paths.
The general insanity that is Legion continues with Chapter 21. Even the recap doesn’t sound sure what’s been going on, since it starts with “Ostensibly on Legion.”
Daredevil follows Luke Cage and Iron Fist in coming back for a final season. The first episode is titled “Resurrection,” and since everyone thinks he’s dead, it’s a good pick.
The Agents of SHIELD are now in the back half of their season. They’ve managed to reunite Fitz and Simmons, so fifty-fifty they get split up again soon. Earth has a new threat or two, depending on how you count Sarge and his crew.
The season, and sadly series, comes to an end for Iron Fist. I know this was the least popular of the Netflix/Marvel shows, but I’ve been a longtime fan of the character, and even most of those who have problems with the show agreed the second season was a big improvement.
Time has almost run out for Iron Fist and company. With only one more episode left after this one, events are picking up speed as we head for the conclusion.
