The Best Of S.H.E.I.L.D

So, what, for you, are the best moments you've seen on SHEILD? They could be silly, filled with action, emotional....what would be your top ten?

These are five I can think of just related to the first two seasons;

 

1. The one where Coulsen first tells Skye the story of her parents-we know what horrible stuff he's telling her, and, intercut with an incresing storm outside, her expression gets progressively sadder

2.  The moment when Phil discovers where a crucial part of his resurrection came from-the music, and the horrified look on his face say everything..

3.  The Terrogenesis scene in the middle of Season Two-actually, pretty much any of the scenes where Skyle realizes she's changed, and her initial horror at discovering here powers and what they could do-the time where pushed away all the agents running after her, and her "oh shit" look afterwards

4.  The scene where Coulsen defiantly explains to Skye they did not fail their mission, and how, while Hydra was scrambling for another hand "I WILL CRUSH THEM!"

5. The weirdo flashback scene with Coulsen following the progressively worse conditions of the agents who had gotten the alien blood treatment, who are at first happy and optimistic, then insane-and then Coulsen sees himself in a straitjacket.

There are a lot great scenes. But two of my favorites are:

I just re-watched Self Control (S3E15)-that ep was fucking amazing...

I have a terrible memory unless I've seen something more than once, but 4,722 Hours (S3E05) is one of the finest hours of television I've ever seen. I was mesmerized and completely sucked into that world. Elizabeth Henstridge worked that episode like the rent was due.

I think the Framework pod was the best part of Season 4 (granted I think the whole season was damn good). No one could have predicted that one change in someone's life, changing one regret, would change so much about each person's life,  the roads that each did not take, etc.   One might quibble that in Daisy's case, Lincoln would have shown up, but having Grant Ward showing up in that context made sense-even by the end Daisy had to concede this version of Ward was not the person all of them once knew. And of course, what happened to Fitz when his father was a big part of his life-it brought out everything bad in him to the front, which was still having an impact on him on season 5...

I agree. That episode followed the tried and true method of storytelling-show, don't tell. Spending the (almost) entire episode on that planet was much more effective than hearing Simmons explain it to Fitz. I tend to like when shows completely break format for an episode, and this case it wasn't a gimmick-it was important to the overall arc...

Daisy hacked into the Framework, so the program didn't rewrite itself to accommodate her like it did with May, Fitz, Coulson, and Mack. Did it make sense for Framework Skye to be a member of Hydra, given how much pre-Coulson Daisy had issues with S.H.I.E.L.D.? No. Did it make sense that Framework Skye would be involved with Ward? No. Was it a poor choice to pair Daisy's Framework counterpart with the man who terrorized her and threatened to rape her in the season one finale? Absolutely.

The fact that Framework Skye was apparently evil (given that she was a member of willing Hydra since her story revolved around Ward) and Framework Ward thought she would be with him if he told her the truth also shows that neither Ward had any idea what Skye/Daisy was like. It's basically a reverse of season one, showing that Ward never really understood Daisy, and his Framework counterpart didn't understand Skye.

Fitz doing something bad (like torturing Daisy, having one of his robots nearly kill Mack, give in to Ruby because he's willing to sacrifice the world for Simmons showing that all his rhetoric about justifying what he did to Daisy and Mack was complete garbage), and having that handwaved, isn't really my idea of showing consequence.

This forum was kind of created for people to say what they liked about Shield-there's plenty of other places to voice what you disliked elsewhere...just sayin'

Other boards have a "gripes" thread and I think the AOS board should start one a long time ago for fans to vent.

I'll always love the run of episodes that started with episode 17 "Turn, Turn, Turn" towards the finale. Clark Gregg did some of his best work.

I know a lot of people aren't a fan of Daisy Johnson, but I am.  I really liked the arc where she discovered her inhuman roots, and gained powers after Terrigenesis. (Like Raina pointed out later on, I believe Daisy hesitated when confronting Raina in the temple, because she wanted to find out what the Diviner would do, seeing how she just found out she was able to hold it, like Raina said she would.)  I felt bad when she was frightened of what she could do, and how she initially could not control it.  I disliked how everyone but Fitz appeared to view her as being a dangerous freak.  I liked her finding out Jaying was her mother (even though both of her birth parents were nuts).

When Season 3 began, she was confident and in control of her abilities (although she was, and still is really, finding out exactly what she can do)

In Season 5, everyone was telling her she would be the one that would eventually destroy earth-so often, after a while, she seemed to believe it.  For the first time since Season 2, she appeared to not really want them-she didn't want Fitz to remove her inhibitor. It remains to be seen if being injected with the Centipede serum will have any lasting effects
