Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. S1, Ep. 12 “Seeds” Review

Show starts with some kids playing in a pool that starts to freeze as they are in it. The kid puts on a Shield hoodie as he is pulled from the frozen pool. Skye is concerned about Coulson being holed up in his office. Skye, Fitz, Simmons, and Ward go back to SHIELD to investigate the pool disaster. Coulson and May talk about his findings and she tells him to not dwell on it. May has found a lead about Skye’s past and her and Coulson team up to work together to track down the lead.

While Fitz and Simmons are giving a lecture one of the kids from the pool incident becomes frozen. Fitz, Simmons, Ward, and Skye are able to save Donnie.  They check out the boiler room which is a hang out for the cadets. Fitz shows up to see Donnie, frozen kid.  

May and Coulson talk about how they will disappear off the grid while on their stake out. The rogue agent runs from May. Fight time! The first thing out of the Agents mouth is that it must be about the baby girl. The baby was the 084. The agents were being killed because of the child. The agent tells them to stop digging and that death follows the child. May warns Coulson to never tell Skye.

Fitz bonds with Donnie about being lonely at the academy. Fitz realizes that Donnie is trying to power a bigger version of the Ice Machine. Fitz and Seth from the pool were actually working together. Ian Quinn is buying the technology. Quinn cancels the deal after he tells the kids to set it off at Shield. Coulson tells Skye that he has been lying. Coulson tells her the whole truth of her past. 

Donnie’s machine causes a hail storm that turns to a super storm. Donnie tries to find a way to stop it. May brings the Bus into the eye of the storm. The machine is hit by lightening and Seth is thrown to the ground. The are able to pick up Donnie and Seth and try to save Seth but it does not work. Donnie now has the freezing power within him and is being shipped to the Sandbox. Coulson calls Quinn to threaten him but Quinn is ready and lets Coulson know the Clairvoyant says hi. 

My Thoughts:

I think it is good that they are showing Coulson with a crisis of faith. He should question a lot right now. Especially with how everything is going. He died and they forced him back to life. The question is why.

I just love the dynamic between May and Coulson. Their talks truly make the show. They are able to add a layer to the show that is needed. May have a hard exterior but she has a reason for everything that she does.

Okay so what powers does Skye have? What makes her special? Also do you think we will see the Clairvoyant during this first season or will this be an ongoing character in the shadows?
