Official synopsis for The Team:

“Agent Daisy Johnson brings the Secret Warriors together for an inaugural mission that will leave no member unscathed, and S.H.I.E.L.D. learns more about Hive’s powers, forcing them to question everyone they trust.”

The Secret Warriors finally teamed up in this week’s episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. It seems like the Secret Warriors have been teased for weeks, but when they finally appeared on the show, it was remarkably short lived. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. did a great job convincing me that each Inhuman could have been the traitor, and I thought the final reveal was done very well. After the events of last week, Hive keeps proving he’s always one step ahead of the team.

Daisy calls in the Secret Warriors to save the agents from Hydra. The obvious choices for the team, Yo-Yo, Joey, and of course Lincoln. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. visual effects team did a fantastic job. Each time the Secret Warriors took down a Hydra agent and teaming up to do so was great to watch. I wasn’t expecting Malick to get captured during their rescue but after leaving Hive dropped the bomb on us that he had “one on the inside”.

Everyone watching immediately started to guess who might the traitor be. I did and I was questioning each of the Inhumans. After Coulson interrogates Malick, he starts to let the paranoia sink in and shares his concerns with the rest of the team. None of us wanted it to be Yo-Yo because she was finally reunited with Mack. Joey had to be the other obvious choice unfortunately that was sort lived, next to blame was Lincoln.

I don’t think Coulson was out of line at all. He is the Director and needs to take precautions especially if a traitor is in their midst. Gideon Malick wasn’t lying though, after losing his daughter to Hive past week then why would he exaggerate? The threat is very real and Daisy’s actions proved just that. The Team was a pretty dark episode. Seeing how Malick died and Daisy’s complete carelessness causing an earthquake in the base was unexpected. Overall the Daisy reveal was intense and she didn’t hold back with her powers under Hive’s control.

A definite highlight was Powers Booth’s performance and did a fantastic job telling Coulson what happened to his daughter.  The big bad nearly cried and let a bit of his vulnerability show. The Secret Warriors team up was short lived and I wished it could of lasted a tad bit longer. Hopefully we’ll get a second round on Secret Warriors again.

Simmons and Fitz had a moment after the team captured Lincoln. The chemistry has always been very apparent but it’s nice to finally see the two taking action on those feelings.

Who will die during the season finale of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.? Let us know your theories and let’s chat about to episode, comment below or find us on Twitter.
