**MASSIVE SPOILER WARNING FOR CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER**
On the heels of the latest Marvel Studios release, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, thing are about to go haywire for everyone over on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.. In the last episode, the team had cornered butt-kicker extraordinaire Melinda May when they discovered she’s been secretly spying on Coulson ever since she boarded The Bus in the first episode. This clip from the next episode, titled “Turn, Turn, Turn,” picks up right where that scene left off.
This is, by far, the most intense moment the show has had since its premiere, and Clark Gregg is nailing Coulson perfectly in a way we haven’t seen him before, betrayed. You can see the confusion and anger in him, a rarity for the S.H.I.E.L.D. agent that’s normally able to keep his cool in even the most extreme of circumstances.
Of course you have to wonder how the effects of The Winter Soldier will play into the series. Considering the promo material, it’s probably safe to say “Turn, Turn, Turn” will take place during the confusion of agents within the organization trying to figure out who’s a Hydra mole and who isn’t. The idea is summed up perfectly in the promo from last Tuesday, when Garrett says “this is a battle for S.H.I.E.L.D.’s soul, and we’re on the front line.”
And as for the Clairvoyant, we’re all thinking Zola, right? It’s gotta be him now. It’s perfect.
What do you think’s going down with Team Coulson on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.?
