Agents of SHIELD returns again for it’s fourth seasons and I am very hyped. This first episode reinforces the idea that Marvel’s next big initiative is towards the magical side of the Marvel universe and to promote the upcoming Doctor Strange movie with magic stuffs. I’m a little worried considering how the Inhumans movie kind of disappeared, but here’s hoping we see more of the mystical side of Marvel.
As for the episode, we start where we left off. S.H.I.E.L.D. is an official government organization, the events of Captain America: Civil War have transpired and enhanced persons must register with the government, and Coulson is no longer the director of S.H.I.E.L.D. Daisy/Sky/Quake has gone rogue (as spies often do) and is chasing bad guys on her own. This is where she comes across the Ghost Rider. For those familiar with the comics, this is not the motorcycle riding, Nicholas Cage iteration. This is the more contemporary Roberto Reyes version who drives a car. Most of the episode is spent with Coulson tracking Daisy and Daisy tracking the Ghost Rider. This episode was simply meant as a reintroduction back into this universe and the state of S.H.I.E.L.D.
There is a big fight scene between the Ghost Rider and Daisy which was pretty cool. Unfortunately, Daisy seems to have been powered down since she cannot use her powers without causing fractures to her bones. Boo. I liked all that power she had.
Score: 6.5/10 Fun episode. I’m looking forward to seeing more supernatural stuff and learning more about this Ghost Rider.
