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

Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. 409 Winter Premiere#2 – New Insight Into Inhuman Vijay

As a fan of Parminder Nagra, I really enjoyed her in this episode because we finally saw a more complex side to her character. She is in a tough position as the Anti-Inhuman politician she is while also having a brother who is one himself. I kept sitting and waiting for the show to make the big reveal that “BOOM! Surprise Marvel Character!”, but it never happened…or did it? We learn that he has super-speed during the fight against the Watchdogs which looked similarly to Yo-Yo’s speed. I really thought for a second that this episode would end without Ellen pulling a drastic move, but because this is Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. with its many twists, she ends up shooting him. However the post-credit scene where we see him being dropped into the ocean had me really curious. Is he perhaps someone from the comics? Is he turning into something more animal-like because of that shell that he got wrapped into? One thing is for sure and that is that we aren’t anywhere done with this character. Imagine if we don’t see him until the third arc of the season?
