’Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.’: ‘Broken Promises’ Review

Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. 409 Winter Premiere#1 – Radcliffe Reveals A Secret

I feel like a complete dummy for not seeing this sooner. Since the end of Season 3, I had a suspicion that Radcliffe’s making of AIDA was something that we should all have been concerned about. But seeing him in the first half of Season 4 had me buy him as an ally. For some reason though, I didn’t end being disappointed about this reveal because it felt, honestly, natural for the character to do so. I’m sure we will get an explanation to all of this sooner or later, but for now, this storyline definitely has me hooked.

Verdict: While I’m still missing the heck out of Ghost Rider, I was more pleased with the start of the LMD storyline than I thought I would be. The Radcliffe twist was something I should have seen coming this whole time since the end of last season. Of course he was bound to get obsessed by his creation and completely loyal to her. Although imagine if he would actually be an LMD himself and the real Radcliffe is MIA? Overall, I enjoyed the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s mid-season premiere for most of it and looking forward to see where things go from here.

Grade: B

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: LMD Season 4 airs on Tuesday nights, at 10/9c on ABC.
