Hail...excuse me...Hale...Hydra

How do you follow up an incredible Fitz episode which reveals the dark side of Fitz? With Hydra Hogwarts of course. We get the backstory on General Hale and it ties everything together. We find out how Hydra trained young kids to grow up to infiltrate not only SHIELD but all other parts of government. We find out the terrible choice Hale was given (I mean its still Hydra) and why she wants Coulson to help her join Hydra and SHIELD. We even get to find out what happened to Talbot (damn it, they made me start to care about him).

And this is all before we get Daisy confronting Fitz and Fitz not apologizing for a damn thing (and dropping his own heat). THIS SHOW IS SO DAMN GOOD!

Coulson uncovers General Hale's real agenda and it could be the end of the world if S.H.I.E.L.D. can't stop her.

On it's own, this episode is a great send off for Willa Holland's Thea Queen. We get Roy & Thea suiting up (the former wearing a baseball cap that sets Dpalm off) and the return of Katrina Law's Nyssa al Ghul. This completes Thea's arc and also sets us up for a return in later seasons (along with maybe a return of one Malcolm Merlyn). But there were some small annoyances with other aspects of the episode:

  • Roy's hat (it's small but a hilarious thing)
  • Dragging out Diggle & Oliver talking about Oliver being back in the hood (ITS CAUSE YOU'RE NOT GOOD ENOUGH DIGGLE!)
  • The whole "is the Captain dirty or is she not?" thing. We already knew she was, stop treating the viewers like we're kids

Overall though, we enjoyed the episode for what it was: A goodbye to a character with a great arc.

Nyssa al Ghul returns to Star City to let Thea know that a group of renegade League of Assassins members are planning to attack her.
