’Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.’: ‘Identity And Change’ Review

Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. 416#1 – Daisy – Captive Of Hydra

A part of me was disgusted to see what Hydra did to Daisy, but I’m pretty sure that was the intention because, duh, Hydra is disgusting. We have seen Daisy roughed up and broken before, but for some reason, this was 100% difficult to watch. It didn’t help that Fitz was still under Hydra’s control at the end of the episode where he assured Daisy that he knows exactly who he is. Unless that was actually Fitz pretending just to sell it to the Hydra agents. Theory time: Fitz secretly regained his memories when he saw Simmons again and is now intending to activate Daisy’s Inhumans powers so that they can get out of the Hydra Triskelion together and reunite with the others. If that isn’t the case, then Daisy is about to have Hell 2.0. next week.

Verdict: Overall, “Identity and Change” was a solid follow-up to last week’s Season 4C premiere as the Agents of Hydra arc is currently off to a great start. While I’m questioning the Framework’s somewhat flaws – by not having 100% control – , it’s probably best for me to suspend my disbelief in that area. The only thing that I’m dying to see in the next episode or so is May finally starting to snap out of it because I need the Calvary to rise and gain control of her life and mind again.

Grade: B+
