‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ Recap and Review: “Collision Course Part Two”
Last week, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. picked up right where it left off. Izel and her ship are heading for her Shrike-made tower, Sarge’s truck is speeding towards a collision with it, and Mack and crew try to make a decision. With Sarge unknowingly prepping to take over the Zephyr with Jaco and Pax at his side, Mack preps to send YoYo out on the quinjet to save May, Daisy, and Deke. Here’s a recap of “Collision Course: Part Two”.
Aboard the inbound ship, Fitzsimmons realize that Izel isn’t exactly friendly. She promises she won’t hurt them because of their intelligence. On the Zephyr, Sarge takes the bridge by force and even sets up a barrier to keep YoYo from speeding in. On the ground, Deke can’t figure out how to disarm what they realize is an atom bomb. Daisy steps in and quakes the bomb to misalign some of its pieces just as the truck collides with Izel’s tower and destroys it. Izel is pissed and threatens FitzSimmons while Sarge is pissed that bomb didn’t blow. He threatens Davis and Mack with his weapon.
Jaco agrees that they try to save Snowflake and help but Sarge is adamant that no one slows them down. It’s not long until YoYo manages to capture Pax in the halls of the ship and use him to get Jaco to momentarily take down the barrier. Sarge isn’t happy and shoots Pax and reminds Jaco that no one slows them down. While the barrier is down, YoYo manages to get the keys to the handcuffs to Mack. While Mack bids his time, May and co. deal with the onslaught of loose Shrike.
Fitzsimmons finally manage to get comms up and get through to the Zephyr. After Sarge realizes they’re on the other ship, he takes over and tells Izel that he’s behind her towers destruction and that he’s coming after her. While Fitzsimmons is surprised to hear Coulson’s voice, Izel isn’t phased. She’s pleased that he remembers her name and tells him that she’ll remind him of his own. Sarge blames her for killing his family and taking his memory, but she tells him he never had any.
Izel believes Fitzsimmons has been working with Sarge the whole time because they recognize his voice. Before she can get her infected hosts to do her bidding, Fitzsimmons manages to disarm them. On the Zephyr, Mack finally moves on Sarge. They face off and Mack’s able to overpower him. The Coulson doppelganger does manage to get in a few good hits. Just before Mack knocks him out, Jaco sides with the agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. YoYo reminds him that he’s fighting to save their planet and defeat Izel, not just Sarge’s chance at revenge. With Sarge in containment, Mack takes YoYo, Davis, and Jaco onto the freighter before Izel can completely leave earth’s outer atmosphere.
Instead of hiding out in the truck, Daisy lets the Shrike in and uses concentrated tremors to turn them to dust. Jaco and Davis split from YoYo and Mack, who arrives just in time to save Fitzsimmons from two crew members. There’s a quick but heartfelt reunion. Downstairs, Jaco and Davis go after Izel even though they’ve been warned not to. They think they have Izel cornered but she’s gone. She and the crew take over the Zephyr, leaving the group to find an alternative.
Jaco uses his jacket to open a portal to the truck, reuniting everyone. Fitz is confused by Deke’s hug, but the light moment is cut short when Jaco takes the bomb and goes back through the portal. He uses his fire to subdue the crew before blowing up Izel’s ship. On earth, the agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. have a party, but something isn’t quite right with Davis. Nobody notices it, too busy with reuniting, drinking, and moving Sarge and Snow to lock up.
After the party, Mack goes to YoYo to apologize. The pair promise to take things slow and share a kiss. Elsewhere May walks into Sarge’s cell and shots him several times in the chest.
Final take on last night’s episode of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Well, it looks like Marvel just loves leaving us fans with cliffhangers and twist. I loved this episode. YoYo got to show her speed and her heart. I’m so glad to see her and Mack start rekindling their relationship. They’re one of my favorite pairings. It’s obvious that the explosion didn’t take out Izel so I’m kind of bummed that Jaco essentially killed some Shrike but missed the head, so to speak. Now that the team is back together, I’m interested to see how Fitz reacts knowing they mourned his death and Deke is around. This episode did a great job of keeping the tension high. Even when you think everything has calmed down, seeds for the next episodes are planted with Davis and May.
I’m giving “Collision Course: Part Two a 10 out of 10.
