Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. "One Door Closes" Episode Review

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

I actually really enjoyed this episode. I've been a little iffy about the second season of this show so far, but I feel like they are finally getting back into the grove of things. Not that I don't mind all the stuff about Skye, but I feel like her stuff isn't as gripping as I wanted it to be. So, it was nice that she was there, but not the main focus and even her story got a bit more interesting.

Ok, yes, I realize how old this episode is, but I'm gonna review it anyway. Still trying to get caught up. I slowly but surely am. But am I wrong to think that the guy with no eyes, Gordon, can be trusted? No red flags went up when he came in or even when he saved Skye from be bombarded by the "real S.H.I.E.L.D.". I don't know, I think Skye will be safe with him and I think she can actually learn a thing or two about who she is rather then trying to hide it from everybody, which doesn't seem to do her much good either.

It took me a minute to know that what we were seeing Mack and Bobbi on the ship with S.H.I.E.L.D. was actually a flashback. I still don't know what that had to do with present day stuff, but it was interesting. Maybe they just wanted to show us that in order to tell us how they first formed their little group, I don't know. But it was just a bit confusing. That's the only part I didn't totally like.

Well, that and the fact that they invaded present day S.H.I.E.L.D. All to talk to Coulson? Couldn't they have just asked instead of all this show off stuff? I'm not sure if the head of the "real S.H.I.E.L.D." can be trusted because I don't believe for a second that Coulson has gone off the deep end. This is how he was trained and he's doing the best he can with what he's got and he doesn't have much after Hydra came charging in and ruined everything.

It was nice to see that Coulson is still on top of his game. How he got to the conclusion and maybe he's known for a while, that Mack and Bobbi aren't too be trusted, was just awesome. To say someone isn't doing well at their job, doesn't know him then. I mean, this just proves how good he is. It makes me wonder who really is in charge of the "real S.H.I.E.L.D.". 

What is this toolbox thing that nobody even knows what's inside of the thing? It must be something pretty important to have to go through all the trouble they did just to get the thing. I'm curious myself to know what's inside. 

So, in the end, Skye ended up going with Gordon because he was there right when she asked for his help. But it looks like to me that Skye is already starting to control her powers. I mean, she made a mess of the forrest, but she didn't hurt anybody and I don't think she knows that. She was just defending herself against someone she thought was bad. I don't think she wants to come to terms with accepting her powers, but I think she'll eventually have to.
