Agents of Shield 4×17 didn’t disappoint as we got a deeper look into the “What If” lives of our Shield agents in the framework.
First off, we get our very first look, at Hope. Hope is of course Macks ill-fated daughter and she in the framework has a wonderful life with her Daddy, Mack. Mack in the Framework is a law abiding citizen and follows all of Hydras rules, but when Hope takes a Hydra drone, she gets them in trouble with Hydra.
I felt the most entertaining, emotionally heart renching scene was at Radcliffes Island. After Madam Hydra and Fitz arrive, we get a beautiful scene where Radcliffe was trying his hardest to convince Fitz of this fake place, whilst Madam Hydra was trying to convince him of the opposite, meanwhile Jemma hiding behind the bush with Ward and Coulson, and pouring her heart out trying to get Ward not to shoot “The Doctor”, and it all culminated with Fitz shooting Agnus, proving his loyalty to Madam Hydra.
During all of that Daisy… erm Skye, gets discovered by May tricking Mack… into Tricking Skye to reveal she was a Shield agent into a microphone. The ending of the episode shows Hydra knows Skye is Inhuman and Fitz is now tasked with tourtueing Skye.
All in all I felt this was a solid second episode in the Agents of Hydra arc and I’d give the episode a 4.5 outta 5, as I felt the episode kinda dragged up until the halfway point, but from there it was AMAZING.
