TV Review: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Rag Tag(1.21)

                                      Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Rag Tag(1.21)Review
  • Seeing how Ward first met Garrett when he was offered a deal by him to get out of juvie by agreeing to join some secret organization that Garrett tells him nothing about other than he promises that no one will ever screw with him again which is something that would sound extremely appealing to someone with Ward's background so I understood why he agreed to this deal. These flashbacks with teenage Ward and Garrett really go a long way in showing how much Garrett has always been manipulating Ward.
  • I liked how Skye, Coulson, Fitz, Simmons and May were all working together trying to find out what Hydra's next move is. I also liked when Coulson pointed out they were no longer working within any official agency that Fitz said that made them vigilantes while Coulson was trying to say they were just doing what's right.
  • I really hated how Garrett kept calling Mike a monster because of the things that he forced him to do.
  • I liked how Tripp brought over some of his grandfather's old gadgets and that him and Coulson totally geeked out over them.
  • I liked how after Fitz accidently set the curtains on fire that May kind of sarcasticly said "Look out Hydra."
  • So I really hate that after Garrett made Ward a fugitive that he just left him out in the woods with just a bag of clothes and a dog and acted like it was unreasonable that Ward would be upset with him abandoning him in the middle of nowhere.
  • I loved how Coulson and May dressed up as Fitz and Simmons but with glasses in order to meet with Cyber tec. in order to allow Skye access to hack their files. I just found the scenes where Coulson and May pretended to be Fitz and Simmons to be hilarious.
  • I loved how after May knocked out the security guard before he could call the rest of security that Coulson looked admirely at her and then told her how glad he was to have her back.
  • I liked the twist that the reason Skye couldn't hack cyber tec's files is because they are all physical files.
  • I liked how Raina revealed to Mike that she and Skye are the same and that she is only using Hydra's resource to find out about herself not because she believes in their cause anymore.
  • I liked how it was revealed that Garrett is the original deathlok and that there has been quite a few made since him.
  • I liked that Ward is actually mad at Garrett for being willing to gamble his life away for some data on a hard drive and I hate how Garrett basically told him to stop whining like it was unreasonable for him to be upset that Garrett who he's unfailingly loyal to doesn't care about whether he lives or dies.
  • I find it really sad how much concern Ward shows for Garrett's well being while it's clear that he doesn't care for Ward at all. I also find it interesting that reason behind the centipede project was to find away to save Garrett's life since his organs are failing.
  • I liked that Fitz wants to know the reasons behind Ward joining Hydra because doesn't believe that people are just born evil but I understand why Skye wants to think that way at the moment.
  • I like that when Skye calls herself weak for not just letting Ward die that Coulson says that she wasn't weak but compassionate and that's harder.
  • I liked the scene between Skye and May where May tells her that she just keeps her hate in check in order to use that later on.
  • I liked how Raina pulled Ward aside to tell him about Skye and I find it interesting that the monsters that were after her as a baby were actually her parents. I also love that Ward doesn't tell Garrett about what Raina told him.
  • Well I really hate how Garrett in fact left Ward to fend for himself in the woods for six months and that Ward seemed to forgive within a matter of minutes for this.
  • I think it's interesting that Raina was able to make a synthetic form of the drug that saved Skye and Coulson.
  • I really didn't think that it seemed like a good idea at all split up the team into two groups being Coulson, May, Skye and Tripp and the other being Fitz and Simmons since they are the ones that have the least combat abilities. It really wasn't a surprise that they were caught by Hydra.
  • I both liked and found it sad how much Ward cared for Buddy especially with saying that he's better than people because he's kind and loyal. I also find it interesting that it seems like Garrett isolated Ward from society for five years and that it took about that long to mention either S.H.I.E.L.D. or Hydra so that by the time that he did it's clear that the organizations themselves don't really matter only Garrett's opinions of them do.
  • I liked how Fitz told Garrett that they came to take their plane back because even though that was an absurd thing to demand given his and Simmons position it was also very brave.
  • I liked how the EMP Fitz had in his pocket almost killed Garrett and I liked how he said that he was glad that he did it and I loved how Fitz told Ward that he doesn't need to listen to Garrett anymore and encouraged him to just let him die sadly Ward didn't really listen to him.
  • I really hate how Garrett seems to have a habit of ordering Ward to kill anyone he cares about and then if he protest it he calls him weak.
  • I'm glad that Ward wasn't able to kill Buddy and instead tried to set him free but I'm pretty sure that Garrett ended up killing him after Ward couldn't make himself do it.
  • I liked how Fitz continued to appeal to Ward until the end and how sure he was that Ward does care about them and I love that he turned out to be right but I hate that it wasn't enough to save them from him dropping them in the ocean. Although I have to say that Ward probably gave Fitz and Simmons their best chance at survival by getting them off the plane that was filled with Hydra agents who would have killed them without a second thought although not a very high chance of survival still better than on the plane and I still hate that Ward did this I could understand why.
  • I find it a bit odd that Garrett left behind so many centipede soldiers in Cuba just on the off chance that Coulson's team would find them.
  • I really dislike that the cure thing seemed to work on Garrett and seemed to have made him stronger than ever.
  • I'm not sure why Garrett wanted to have Quinn sell his super soldiers to US army but I bet it has to do with more than just making money.
Please tell me your thoughts on this episode.
