The team reels from its losses as Hive continues to draw Inhumans to his side; agents Fitz and Simmons get a lead that could stop the maniacal Inhuman forever.

This is the first installment of the season closing arc, Hive is on the rise, and the Agents of SHIELD try to reclaim their own.

Remember to tune in tonight to ABC, True Believers, 9pm Eastern, 8pm Central.

I wonder if there's a limit to how many Inhumans Hive can control.

He doesn't really "control" them though, does he? They're still self-aware, just addicted and hanging on his every word. At most I'd suspect the limit is how many people he can "dose" within a short period (without needing to make more nanites).

Coulson's shield!!!

Now, can he throw it?

I gotta admit, I love Coulson's shield.  That he proposed it as something of a joke, and Fitz ran with the concept was a wonderful notion.

Then also, there was Fitz's romantic speech to Simmons:

Simmons:  Are you comparing our going to bed together with crossing the Event Horizon of a Black Hole?
Fitz:  Uh ... yeah.
Simmons:  That's rather romantic ... and kind of frightening as well.

(sigh) :love:

Now both Lincoln and May are questioning Coulson's tactics.  Admittedly, he has his reasons ... and he did give Lincoln the choice - if you wish to join us in the field, then you have to wear the "murder vest" for our safety.  Oh, and Coulson loves Daisy :love: Admittedly, as a father rather than a lover, but still.  OTOH, Lincoln's attraction is bordering on the obsessive ... leading me to ask, what is it about Daisy that have men falling for her?  Coulson, Ward, and now Lincoln and maybe Hive :eek:

Speaking of Hive, good on Simmons for pulling the trigger after that really, REALLY, creepy discussion.

Oh, and the newby Inhuman trying to pick his name was also a nice touch.  I was thinking "Detonator" myself, given that he can cause things to explode.

Finally, there's apparently some kind of prehistoric doohickey that can defeat Hive ... that will still work after millennia of disuse.  Well, this is the Marvel Universe.

Ah, the shield was cool.  That whole scene was great. "My leg does hurt." "Get a cybernetic one." "Too soon."

It was great seeing Fitz and Simmons finally getting together, and if this means that one of them will die, I will be very upset. Why does Simmons have cold hands right after her run-in with Hive-Ward?  This better not mean anything.  At least anything that can't be fixed.

It's interesting how they portray Hive-Ward's minions. They are still themselves, but it's like they drank the Kool-Aid. I wonder what they will be like once they are cured. Or if getting the Hive-stuff out of their brains will even cure them now.

The elimination of HYDRA seemed very perfunctory, considering what a widespread threat they had been. I wonder if they had to do that because of the movies for some reason.  :shrug:
