Episode 414 “Boom”
Written by Nora Zuckerman & Lilla Zuckerman
Directed by Billy Gierhart
It’s an explosive episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., but mainly only because we have Terrence Shockley (John Pyper-Ferguson) finding out things about himself he knew not until now. And it’s not something he likes about himself, and the Superior (Zach McGowan) isn’t too happy about it, either, especially after there’s an… incident, shall we say? … at the office of Senator Nadeer (Parminder Nagra). It ends up being Daisy (Chloe Bennet) vs. Shockley as she tries to counter his skills and … abilities, shall we say?
Meanwhile, Coulson (Clark Gregg) and Mack (Henry Simmons) continue their search for May (Ming-Na Wen), and that leads them to Agnes (Mallory Jansen), a flesh-and-blood Aussie who happens to have worked with Radcliffe (John Hannah) and is completely freaked by the idea that he went ahead with his experiments in robotics — only we’re back to Radcliffe claiming to work with the long-standing goal of making it possible for Agnes to live forever. Because she’s got an inoperable brain tumor. But Radcliffe’s mention of the Mainframe also tips Coulson to the fact that May’s alive.
