Welcome back to the ComicsAlliance post-show analysis for Agents of SHIELD, the spy show set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This is where we break down each episode using our unique S.H.L.E.I.D. recap system — recapping the show, looking at highlights and lowlights, and exploring the show’s relationship to both the comics and the wider Marvel movie world.
This week, Skye hangs out in Inhumantown, Coulson and Hunter try to track Skye down (and only get as far as the cabin), and Agent Gonzalez tries to crack open Fury's little black box. Plus, the return of that one guy I'd honestly kinda totally forgotten existed. 'Afterlife' was directed by Kevin Hooks and written by Craig Titley.
Last episode: Sif. Two episodes ago: John Garrett. Three episodes ago: Deathlok.

He may not have half a metal face or a big red eye, but a version of Deathlok is joining up with Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.in the show's February 4 episode on ABC.
Well, "joining up" might not be the right phrasing. He's actually been on the show since the pilot, but viewers didn't know just what was in store for Mike Peterson, played by J. August Richards, until now. Turns out, the whole thing was a stealth celebration of Deathlok's 40th anniversary.
While other sites may be content to bring you Rocktober, Shocktober or Mohawktober, ComicsAlliance is committed to commemorating the things that really matter! That's why this month, we're bringing you 31 days of Marvel's futuristic cyber-soldier as we celebrate Deathloktober...
Welcome to the second edition of 2 Davids, 1 Book where David Brother and David Uzumeri take a look at the "Deathlok: The Demolisher" hardcover by Charlie Huston ("Moon Knight", "The Shotgun Rule") and Lan Medina ("Punisher MAX", "Fables"), a stark, uncompromising vision of a dystopian future that seems very rooted in the social anxieties of the 1980s...
