Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. "Bouncing Back" Episode Review

Everybody is indeed having to bounce back from what they went through the last time we saw our favorite S.H.I.E.L.D. team. 

They all have to adjust. Some more then others. Namely Fitz and Simmons. Fitz beating himself up over the fact that he killed the fake Will and then Simmons who has to get over losing someone she loved. I'm not sure if she truly loved Will, but he was there through her dark times. But this couple can seriously never get a break.

If it's not one thing, it's another with them. Simmons' brilliant idea is to just start from the beginning. Like the last 2 years haven't even happened. I really hope that doesn't mean that they can just ignore the feelings they have between them, but I do miss them working as a team together. Maybe they will get there eventually. Well, I hope sooner rather then later, but we will just have to see I guess. But please stop messing with one of my favorite couples on this show! You already messed with one by making Grant bad and then him dying and turning into an alien and having no future with Daisy, so please can one of the couples be happy?!

I don't know how it's possible, but as an alien, Grant is made even more creepy. Or maybe that's just signs of a brilliant actor, but either way, he just creeped me out like there was no tomorrow in any scene he was in. I don't even know what to think what he is capable of. Grant truly is the villain of this show.

Ok, seriously, is everybody starting to do a time jump in shows? Not that I totally mind, but Pretty Little Liars started it and now it's 3 shows I watch that do it. Pretty Little Liars, Vampire Diaries and now this one. Please tell me that that was the last we see of the three months from now? Not that I don't mind time jumps, but sometimes I feel like if we only get a glimpse here and there, then nothing in the present time feels shocking. Yes, I'm talking about Vampire Diaries. Everything they did I knew it eventually got fixed later. So, please, please don't be doing the same thing Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.! 

Ok rant over, back to the show now. Yo Yo, awesome nickname, btw. She was fun and someone I liked immediately. Yes, she kidnapped Mack, but for some reason, I never got a bad vibe from her. Like I knew she was someone to be trusted. She thinks that her gifts are from God, but in reality, fish oil stuff is what did this to her. I do give her props for using her gifts as good and not evil like most inhumans do. Well, unless they run into Daisy.

Speaking of Daisy, I love how they've transformed her over the seasons. From computer hacking nerd to someone who does most of the saving in the first episode back from her hiatus. You go girl!

Coulson is so desperate into getting info on the person who killed the woman he was starting to love, that he puts their one hope into the machine he hates, just to get info on him. They do, but really Coulson? You are going just a little too far.

I do love the face that Lincoln has decided to stay and help them out. Well, that and the fact that it seems like he and Daisy finally have a chance at happiness. Through all of this Daisy has realized that even if you are inhuman, that doesn't mean you can't lead a normal life. If you have family, go home and visit them. But I'm sure they will be ready if S.H.I.E.L.D.  really needs them.
