As the last pod is picking up speed on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. building up to the season finale, many questions surround what direction the show will take. Aida was no fool and integrated herself into this world as Madame Hydra to keep a close look at the various agents new lives, as well as keeping Fitz rather close. With the latest episode’s press release, we may be closing in on Aida’s end game to potentially head into a darker direction for everyone involved.
On the episode “All The Madame’s Men” – Daisy finds herself teamed up with an unlikely partner. Meanwhile, Aida prepares to put her ultimate end game into effect, on “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” TUESDAY, APRIL 25 (10:00-11:00 p.m. EDT), on The ABC Television Network.
“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” stars Clark Gregg as Agent Phil Coulson, Ming-Na Wen as Agent Melinda May, Chloe Bennet as Daisy Johnson, Iain De Caestecker as Agent Leo Fitz, Elizabeth Henstridge as Agent Jemma Simmons, Henry Simmons as Agent Alphonso “Mack” MacKenzie and John Hannah as Holden Radcliffe.
Guest starring are Brett Dalton as Grant Ward, Mallory Jansen as Madame Hydra/Aida, Jordan Rivera as Hope Mackenzie, David Weiss as serious man, Patrick Cavanaugh as Burrows, Zach McGowan as The Superior, David O’Hara as Alistair, Ben Cain as Hydra agent, Andy Comeau as Hydra doctor and Kavita Patil as Mrs. Lee.
“All the Madame’s Men” was written by James C. Oliver & Sharla Oliver and directed by Billy Gierhart.
It will be interesting to see what exactly her end game is, but it is also a sign that we may return to the real world with Zach McGowan returning as The Superior. He could jump into the framework as some big wig within the organisation, which would tie into the “All The Madame’s Men” title. Hopefully this is also a sign that some former HYDRA heads will get an opportunity to return, such as Whitehall or Malick.
That is not all. We also received a sneak preview for the next episode’s release, as we finally get to see how much Mack’s life has changed. We know that in the real world, he has lost his daughter, so seeing him interact with her makes your heart break knowing that he may have to potentially realize that it is all but a dark twist of reality. It is also interesting to see how HYDRA operates on everyday civilians, and how much fear it provokes.
