Skye’s the Limit By Roderick on April 30, 2014 3 The remark I want to make contains a SPOILER for last nights episode of Agents of SHIELD, so Ive buried it in the comments section. Science Fiction
Just wondering if anyone noticed the following bit of parallelism.
In the pilot episode, Coulson and Ward are holding Skye captive and interrogating her. Coulson pulls out a big dose of truth serum, and we assume hes going to use it on Skye. Instead he uses it on Ward, to gain Skyes confidence and moreover to reassure the audience that Coulson is not a Jack Bauer kind of agent. (Later its hinted that the serum was fake, though were never told for sure. If it wasnt, Ward came close to blowing his cover in the first episode.)
In last nights episode, Deathlok and Ward are holding Skye captive and interrogating her. Deathlok pulls out a creepy device, and we assume hes going to use it on Skye. Instead he uses it on Ward, in order to motivate Skye and likewise to suggest to the audience that hes not all bad.
The implications of substituting Deathlok for Coulson are interesting, now that each one is revealed as problematically augmented.
I just started watching that show after the new Captain America movie came out, I need to watch all of the older episodes.
Interesting observation, Roderick.
But where is your review of CA: TWS?
