Agents of SHIELD Season 4: Episode 16, Daisy and Jemma in an alternative reality, our critic
Yesterday evening, the American channel ABC broadcast episode 16 of season 4 of Agents of SHIELD. Then discover our review of “What If …”!
“It’s not the framework, it’s hell” … Jemma summarizes very well our thoughts on the world in which she finds herself with Daisy in this new episode of season 4 of Agents of SHIELD . Episode 16 resumes where the last one stopped before the break and the least we can say is that – just like Jemma and Daisy – we are not at the end of our surprises. Daisy discovers that her life is totally different here, to begin with her name is always Skye, has no powers and goes out with Grant Ward. Besides, what a pleasure to see Brett Dalton on our screens! And then, what a pleasant surprise to see that in this universe he is once again the traitor, but this time on the side of the Gentiles and to protect Skye / Daisy . Then, It turns out that the couple is working for Hydra, who replaced the SHIELD in this reality, and they spend their time interrogating Inhumans. For her part, Jemma does not have an easier life, for she is dead. Its first act in the framework is therefore to dig up. She is then on the run for the majority of the episode, having only one piece of identification on her that indicates she is part of the SHIELD – the enemies .
If we are a little lost at the start, we quickly understand how the different characters got there. Everyone seeks to escape something of his reality. The framework is supposed to remove the “pain” of people’s lives, unfortunately removing the pain of May led to the rise of Hydra. Jemma and Daisy realize that if they stay too long in this universe, they risk getting caught up in the game and not being able to return to reality. Daisy then suggests that they return and that they plan with Yo-Yo to save everyone. Unfortunately, their plan to go back into reality is not working and they are now stuck in the framework . How will they manage?
In a last twist, it is discovered that it is AIDA who is the Director of Hydra and that she has arranged to “capture” Jemma and Daisy. What could be his ultimate goal? Also, Fitz, his second, seems to be his lover – ew – and he is totally devoted to it. Something tells us that if Jemma is dead in this reality, AIDA surely must have played a role and not Lincoln as the files claim . A little ray of hope still arrives at the end of the episode, since the touching speech from Daisy to Coulson ends up reviving his memory. Have the girls just found a new ally? In any case, this third part of Season 4 of Agents of SHIELD begins with a great episode. This alternative reality is very well built and we feel that all the intrigues of the season have led us to that. We are particularly looking forward to seeing the suite anyway! What did you think of this episode?
