Hello boys and girls. Welcome to this week’s very special episode. This week, Agent Ward learns a little something about the importance of working together. That’s right, this week’s theme is…teamwork!
I thought this week’s episode, “0-8-4” was great fun, despite it’s utter lack of subtlety. Did it change the way I think about the world? Nope. did it give me great insights into the human condition? Nope. Was there an Incan temple in the rainforest? Uh – yeah! Good times, people, good times.
Here’s the highlights of the week:
Say it with me, y’all: Coulson has a girl-friend, Coulson has a girl-friend! A super unconvincing girlfriend who is obviously up to no good! Technically she’s an ex-girlfriend. By the end of this episode the break-up is no longer amiable. This surprises no one.
Words that are deeply inspiring in light of the fact that our elected officials can’t agree on how to pay their bills:
Couslon: Ward, you can speak six languages. Simmons, you have PhD’s in fields I can’t pronounce. And Fitz – you ARE a rocket scientist! Work it out!
Skye: I’m good at stuff, too!
It’s the plaintive tone in her voice that sells it.
A few moments of hilarious physical comedy – everyone backs away from the highly dangerous alien explosive, and I spend several minutes screaming at the cast to stop leaning on the raft. Jesus, you guys.
And my favorite line,
From the Ex: “I’m not even going to mention the Corvette!”
Coulson: Her name is Lola:
The Ex: Of course it is.
Hands down the best moment comes from the very end of the episode. By now two whole days have passed since the episode aired and yet I still can’t bring myself to screw this moment up for those of you who haven’t seen the episode yet. just watch to the end, OK?
See you next week!
