Welcome back, true believers!  When last we left our band of wayward agents, the hidden artifact known as the Obelisk had been taken by Avengers-villain, Crusher Creel (aka the Absorbing Man).  The team lost one of their newest members apparently as Lucy Lawless’ Hartlay bit the bullet and was killed in the final minutes of the season premiere, though this is the Marvel universe and resurrections are fair game for any character.  Tonight, we’ll see the return of the mysterious “woman in the flower dress”, Raina, apparently seeking to help the team rather than inhibit them.  Will the team join their old foe in attempting to reclaim the Obelisk?  Will Fitz go even crazier in this episode?  Why oh why didn’t I make a joke about the Absorbing Man not being played by Nick Nolte during the last recap?  All this and more in the recap for the latest episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., “Heavy is the Head”….

War has changed and so too have the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.  Following last week’s episode and the events of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, the agents are left without the resources of which they’ve become accustomed.  The series has begun to turn itself around with traitors, espionage, and revelations coming fast and heavy, throwing some unexpected curveballs our way.  Did I also mention that this episode sees the arrival of Agent Eric Koenig, played by comedian extraordinaire Patton Oswalt?  Can the agents defeat Hydra that have taken over S.H.I.E.L.D. bases across the world?  Will the show continue its hot streak moving forward?  Has Ward turned heel for real?  Hit the jump for our recap.

Here we go.  With Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Marvel Studios takes their first step from dominating the silver screen to the small screen.  The anticipation for this one has been building for quite some time, tail ending off the most recent Marvel box office juggernauts, Iron Man 3 and The Avengers. Joss Whedon and co. hope to put on display the excitement of the Marvel Universe through the eyes of the non-superpowered ranks of S.H.I.E.L.D (Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division).  Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg) and Agent Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders) are the two major mainstays from the Marvel movie-verse who appear in the pilot and they’ve got a big cast to back them up.
