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 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.
With an ensemble show like Agents of SHIELD, there’s always a balance to be considered: plot, character development, and who gets screen time. This season, they seem to be shifting around and focusing on smaller parts of the team for scenes or even episodes. In “Inescapable,” the focus is on SHIELD’s star-crossed lovers, Fitz and Simmons.
So far on season six of Agents of SHIELD, we’ve heard about Coulson’s death, but have not seen his final moments or anything about a funeral or memorial.
So far in season six of Agents of SHIELD, Jeff Ward, who plays Deke Shaw, has been in the credits, but his roguish character hasn’t been seen or even mentioned. They change that up with “Code Yellow.”
SHIELD’s Earthbound contingent gets a break this week as we focus on the Very Far Away Team. The saga of Fitz and Enoch, as well as Daisy’s group, both continue as they have adventures that veer a lot more comedic than usual this episode.
The Agents of SHIELD had their new season start off with a bang. We learned about some new hopes, saw an ongoing mission arguably out of SHIELD’s jurisdiction, and saw a new threat with a familiar face.
