I know that this happened quite a while ago, but I never got around to doing a post about it. Also, SPOILER ALERT FOR AGENTS OF SHIELD S3E13!!!
If you clicked on the Read More link, then I am presuming that you have watched the full episode Parting Shot and that you do not care about spoilers. So, yeah, Bobbi and Lance are officially off the team! Well, they’re not dead, but they’re off the team.
So, in case you don’t know, MARVEL is working on a new TV drama called Most Wanted. It will focus on the lives of Hunter and Morse outside of S.H.I.E.L.D. However, just that they aren’t agents anymore, doesn’t mean that they aren’t in grave danger. They are constantly being hunted by criminals, possibly including Hydra. I had no idea how they were going to explain the two Agents not being with S.H.I.E.L.D anymore, and I think that they did a pretty darn good job.
In a nutshell, Bobbi and Lance let the Russians capture them, but when in Russia, they escape. They take out a few Russian soldiers, steal a military truck and they carefully observe the compound were the Russians promised to build an “Inhuman Sanctuary” but will probably just build a prison or some sort of camp where inhumans will be brainwashed and trained to join Hydra, because the Russian Government is not aware that Malick (who is co-operating with them) is actually part of Hydra.
Then the rest of the team comes along and they all go to the “sanctuary” and try to find out what’s really going on over there. Surprise, surprise, it turns out that it’s not even a sanctuary after all. There is an awesome inhuman there who works for Hydra and he kills multiple people including Russians and Americans. He almost kills the Prime Minister, but Bobbi does the right call. She takes a handgun, shoots the inhuman, drops the gun and immediately kneels down with her hands behind here head. She knows that she is done for. The Russians then capture Lance and Bobbi and brutally interrogate them.
In the end, they get Coulson to play along with the back story they made up, that the reason they were in Russia, was just to go on vacation and they went so deep into Siberia, just so they can pick some mushrooms. The Russians don’t really believe the story, but since Coulson confirmed it, they have no proof against it, so they let the two go. However, they cannot return to S.H.I.E.L.D
I must say, that I really enjoyed this episode. I think it is a great idea to give the two agents their own TV show. I cannot wait to see it. Also, from now until next Thursday I will only be doing MARVEL posts, to celebrate the release of Captain America: Civil War. Also, please don’t forget to leave some Q&A questions as a comment below or e-mail them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Everybody who submits a question will get a shout-out in the post. Check out this mash-up that MARVEL Ent. made to give the two agents the goodbye they deserve. It’s pretty cool. You can also click here to check out my podcast! For now, have a Tremendous Tuesday and So Long!
