Well, it certainly seems that MARVEL’S AGENTS OF SHIELD has a direction now in terms of the entire mythology of the show (or at least this season) but they are dragging their heels to the finish line as it was shown in “The Light in the Darkness.”

Now as cool as it is to think that this would just lead to numerous awesome stories involving the characters we have grown to know (or been deceived as the case may be), if this is any indication, the thawing of The Fridge, just let them another reason to feature more one-hit wonders to track down as plot filler.

Hopefully I am wrong. As there are only three episodes left in the season, I suppose they can’t take too much time on non-essential aspects to the show. But with AOS you never really know do you.

Trouble is with “The Light in the Darkness” it actually began really well. I enjoyed Ward’s (Brett Dalton) reunion with the team especially knowing he’s a snake in the grass. He went back to being that silent, cold team player he has been but obviously we know the truth. I also enjoyed the lie-detector chair that Agent Koenig (Patton Oswalt) came up with even if the questions were a bit too open – as Ward easily passed it by faking his answers.

Actually, the entire bit with Koenig, Ward and Skye (Chloe Bennet) was enjoyable from the dupe of Skye, to the murder of Koenig, to Skye learning Ward’s true intentions and what he was really after.

However, this was offset with Agent Coulson’s (Clark Gregg) squad hunting down an escaped S.H.I.E.L.D. Fridge guy with some sort of light-absorbing power that was never fully explained or thought-out or even really used very well. His team, naturally, defeated the dude after we learned the guy was going after one of Coulson’s old squeezes.

After four solid episodes, this bit of back-to-the-old sunk what was a promising episode which hopefully means that in the last few episodes things will heat up again. One thing is for sure, AOS is much better post-CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER than it was prior to that film debuting.
