Is Bobbi Morse Going To Kill Coulson On 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'? She Promised The Real S.H.I.E.L.D. That She'd Handle This Threat
To be honest, a coup d'etat was not the most exciting revelation that Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. could have served us as the explanation for "the real S.H.I.E.L.D." Robert Gonzales is just a solum S.H.I.E.L.D. agent who wants to take care of "the Coulson situation". However, Tuesday's episode did give us frightening prospect to ponder — will Bobbi Morse kill Coulson on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.? At the end of Tuesday's episode, she declared Coulson to be a bigger threat than Skye and boasted that she would only need six hours to eliminate him. I'm not super concerned for Coulson's life at this point. Come on, how many times can one man die? I am, however, not psyched about what this means for Bobbi! I thought Mockingbird was cool!
I guess I can't fault other members of S.H.I.E.L.D. for being suspicious of Phil Coulson after he was injected with alien blood by Nick Fury and caused a lot of destruction in his pursuit of answers. Those typically aren't qualities that you want in a leader. Remember, this series started with Coulson as somewhat of a rogue agent. It's almost refreshing to see him put back in that role. Being the Director of S.H.I.E.L.D. was never Coulson's path.
As I suspected, Gonzales sent Mack and Bobbi in to gather intel on Coulson before they made their move. We still don't quite know why this faction of S.H.I.E.L.D. changed their logo. I do think it's neat that they have multiple leaders, "because democracy." While being processed, Lance Hunter was all and nicknames. He called Agent Weaver "Lady Thomas Jefferson" when she got political and referred to the whole operation as "Hufflepuff" — how rude! He was also not on board with this operation.
After a tearful confrontation with Bobbi, Hunter tried to fight his way out of "the real S.H.I.E.L.D." headquarters, only to discover that he was stranded on a helicarrier in the middle of the ocean. How has Coulson not noticed a missing helicarrier? Does he not take inventory? Anyway, Hunter escaped via pod and Bobbi, though fully committed to the cause, let him go.
I am, however, a little glad that they're going after Coulson instead of Skye. She's just been abandoned in a literal cabin in the woods to work on her powers. Safe and sound, right? Also, first Skye's attempts to repress her emotions to control her powers backfired and then they gave her drugs? Feel Skye, don't conceal! Could she be any more Elsa?
As for Coulson, has Bobbi gone Severus Snape on us, or is she truly against him? Whose side is she on?
