All the excitement from Marvel’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” spilled over into this week’s “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” so consider yourself spoiler warned. Tonight’s episode featured a number of surprising big reveals as seemingly every character had their loyalty called into question. And, true to the episodes title, a few agents did turn, turn, turn over to Hydra’s side!
Between all of the betrayals and a really heartbreaking-in-hindsight first kiss, you may have missed a few of this adventure’s best quips. Here are a few choice quotes from the episode!
Triplett: “But hey, if we get questioned? Let me talk. You’re a surprisingly bad liar.” Agent Simmons: “I know, but I’m getting better at it.” – Oh Jemma, things are only going to get worse.
“She’s a sleeper. I mean, the other kind of sleeper.” – Agent Coulson, talking about either Agent May secretly reporting to their superiors or her unconscious state.
“We swore allegiance to each other, and today that loyalty will be tested. If you waver, you die.” – Victoria Hand, giving her definition of a rallying speech.
Coulson: “Cut off a head, two more will take its place.” Garrett: “Is it a head? I thought it was a limb.” Fitz: “No no no, it’s a head.” Coulson: “It’s a head.” Great. Now that we’ve got that settled…
“The number of people I trust is now seven.” – Agent Hand, after putting Agents Triplett and Simmons through an incredibly stressful, gun-heavy allegiance test.
“The worst thing you can do right now is underestimate Hydra. They hide in plain sight; they earn our trust, our sympathy. They make us like them, and when you hesitate, they strike. If we’re to survive, we must learn to strike first.” – The incredibly quotable Agent Hand dropping some real knowledge on Agent Simmons.
“Hail Hydra.” – Agent Garrett, elevating himself to the level of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s new Big Bad.
