Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Review “Repairs”

Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD is taking its first week off next Tuesday, so tonight’s episode “Repairs” had the opportunity to give us our first miniature cliffhanger. With yet another “Case of the week” to deal with tonight, I was hoping that Agents of SHIELD would end this nine week stretch on a high note.

After the brief opening scene that introduced us to our demon possessed freak-of-the-week Hannah, we get a confirmation that Ward and May did indeed sleep together last week. I think we’re supposed to just assume that this episode picked right back up where we were last episode, so I think this was just a one night stand. It would be another thing altogether if they spent several days together, but I don’t think that happened. Anyway, I’m not sure how I feel about it quite yet. We don’t know much about Ward as a character quite yet, and we know even less about May, so this whole secret love affair just falls flat for me. It seems to mean absolutely nothing to May other than a release of tension, but Ward is actually seems to be the one getting invested in it. You just know that eventually Skye is going to find out about it, and it’s going to drive a wedge between her and Ward inevitably ending up together. I really hope this was just a one night stand and that it’s quickly forgotten.
