Well, that was… something. I had some idea of what would happen in this season, but now I think I am a bit too confused to really know what’s going on or what will happen. Let’s do a teensy re-cap, shall we?
Season 4 cliff hanger…Agents are kidnapped… Coulson is somewhere in space… So what’s the next thing we would see? The S.H.I.E.L.D space team? No. We see an alien taking a shower. Yes, taking a shower… did I stutter? But don’t worry, you don’t actually see too much; just a shadowy figure. Well, when this alien puts on his human suit, he is actually the one who was responsible to the team’s kidnapping.
Now, where were we? Oh, yes. Just like always, the team is split up and Coulson almost dies… almost. Don’t worry, the hole int he compartment he is in is plugged up… But of course that’s not the end of the suspense. There are some aliens that are an issue and a pilot who has been waiting for Coulson (or so it seems). The team is finally back together… mostly. May gets beat by some guy looking like Star Lord, but when everyone is together, they find that where they are is not in space, but in time. The future, in fact. And the stuff they see floating out in space, well, that’s the remains of Earth. Dammmmnnnnnn…
The station they are stuck on is run by Kree and you have to be sure to wear this thing called the Metric, or they’ll find you. So I guess it’s Marvel’s version of the Cloak of Invisibility. Ok… But it’s good they have this because apparently the Kree saved the humans just after the destruction of Earth. The only catch was total obedience. Basically, the humans are slaves. Simmons does something stupid and becomes a Kree servant.
Now, I’ll leave the other spoilers out, because it gets pretty good. But we do find out what caused the destruction of the world… or who… OHHHHHHH!
More to come as the season progresses.
