This week’s “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” put an even more treacherous spin on the old saying, “the call’s coming from inside the house.” “End of the Beginning” may have started out with the good guys going up against Mike Peterson in his new Deathlok get-up, but it ended with our core S.H.I.E.L.D. team rocked to their very core by apparent betrayal. There’s no safe place and anyone could be under the Clairvoyant’s sway.
Between all of Deathlok’s rocket launching and the Clairvoyant’s mind games, you may have missed a few of this adventure’s best quips. Here are a few choice quotes from the episode!
Simmons: “So you’re saying we should obey the rules.” Fitz: “Who are you and what have you done with Skye?” – FitzSimmons can’t handle the sudden change in Skye’s MO.
“In your hunt for Santa Claus? No. I’m taking a transport jet back to the Hub where I can coordinate with the field teams via satellite. Someone’s going to have to pull your asses out of the fire when things go south.” – Victoria Hand only follows her rules and likes insulting jolly old St. Nick by comparing him to the Clairvoyant.
Simmons: “Brilliant deduction, Dr. Watson.” Fitz: “I always pictured you as Watson.” – It comes as no surprise that these two are Sherlock Holmes fans.
“I’m Thomas Nash. Mr. Po gave me that other name, a bit dramatic for my taste.” – The Clairvoyant revealed! Probably. Maybe? Either way, Thomas Nash isn’t around to set the record straight.
“Now I understand why I couldn’t see you after you died – because you yourself could not see. You were simply a broken man who did not know he was broken.” – Creepy Guy Possibly Known As The Clairvoyant sure knew how to get under Agent Coulson’s resurrected skin.
“It is the inevitable. A force beyond your comprehension is coming for you – you and Skye. She has something we want and she will die giving it to us. I have seen it.” – It turns out whoever’s behind the Clairvoyant’s keyboard knew how to get under everybody’s skin.
“The Clairvoyant doesn’t have abilities, he has security clearance. He’s an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.” – Coulson, proving that everyone else on the Bus is actually the Watson to his Sherlock Holmes
