Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. "The Things We Bury" Episode Review

*Review contains spoilers, so read at your own risk!*

Man, Grant, where do I even begin with you? Even though you are evil and really, really crazy, I still, oddly enough, like you. I don't know how, but I do. You even pushed your level of crazy to a new level when you decided to kill your whole family for no apparent reason. Well, perhaps the reason was to get in with Whitehal and why you would want to do that, I have no clue. 

Whitehal's background/history is kind of....disturbing I guess is the right word for it. It wasn't revealed quite how the guy never ages, but it had something to do with the body he literally dissected (which just adds to the gore factor). That was a twist in itself to learn the true identity of the body he was looking at. To learn why Skye's dad really wants to work for Whitehal. Because the lady he killed, was Skye's mom! I can just see this whole situation from going to bad to worse.

Is there hope for Fitz? It seems to me that possibly, he could be getting back to his normal self. I saw a little bit of the old Fitz when he was like "Oh, with both hands, I can do it fine". Now that I think about it, though, I was wondering if that was a more of a, I'm still different remark then anything else, but still, I fell like somehow the old Fitz might be coming back and I've missed him. I didn't know he didn't have both hands not working well. It all worked out in the end though and I loved the fact that Coulson wanted to include Fitz in the mission this time. Since the last time Coulson talked about Fitz, he sounded more annoyed with him then anything else. 

Coulson meets Skye's dad for the first time and doesn't even know it! I was wondering how that situation was gonna go down when Triplett got shot and Skye's dad just so happened to be there and was like "I can help, I'm a doctor!". The minute he slipped up and said Coulson's name, I was hoping Coulson would pick up on that tiny little oops there and realize who they were dealing with. He did, thank goodness. Triplett is fine, though. But then there was that small little hint of what Skye's dad said "That's not her real name!". 

Bobbi is interrogating Whitehal's second hand man, who I guess isn't his second hand man anymore and would make sense why he is recruiting Grant and Skye's dad. He also slipped up and didn't even know it. Though I wonder if he did it on perhaps. Hunter starts to question Bobbie's true motives in that since he thought the guy was about to reveal something Bobbie didn't want anybody to know and I think he was right and I'm not sure why Bobbie didn't want anybody to know. Though, somehow, I think that sort of fixed their relationship? 

Finally, they know who the real Whitehal is! They still haven't figured out how he hasn't aged, but they at least know his identity and somewhat of a help from Simmons on that one. I'm not sure how it'll help with their investigation, but I'm thinking it will. Somehow.
