Previously on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D… well, let’s just say trust is a little hard to come by these days. S.H.I.E.L.D. has fallen. The team itself remains wary of whom they can actually count on, thanks to the events of last week. Hydra, which has been quietly infiltrating the organization for far longer than anyone can really comprehend (pawning a little background from Zola and Winter Soldier here) has finally prevailed. And just when we thought we had everyone figured out, Ward — Ward, of all people! — has gone to the dark side.
Or has he? There’s been a lot of speculation about whether or not Ward is actually as Hydra-brainwashed as he seems to be, and we still have a handful of episodes to get through before the end of the season, so this should be a fun ride. (Though something tells me this isn’t going to be resolved neatly, if at all.)
