Schmidt is getting used to having Abby around, in spite of her weird, painful jewelry creations, and Nick and Jess start to wonder why they haven’t made things official with their living situation. They try it, but quickly learn that they can’t stand each other 24/7 and still need their own space.
Coach and Cece are still trying to get comfortable in their friendship, Coach overdoing it acting like another one of the girls.
After Jess and Nick admit they’re not ready to commit to living together full time, Schmidt explains how Abby took off and went home to her mom, and he spent all his money setting up a storefront for her jewelry, so he has to move back to the loft.
The team is hard at work trying to figure out how to save Skye after they get the news that the medical team cannot do anything else for her. Coulson shares his file with Fitz/Simmons, hoping they can find something in there that will explain how they brought him back to life, as maybe it can save Skye as well. So, the two of them work to get into SHIELD’s files to find out about a place called GH and a drug that was used on Coulson.
May takes to beating the hell out of Quinn, but Coulson stops her before she goes too far. Right on time, a couple of other SHIELD agents, Garrett (special guest appearance by Bill Paxton!) and Triplett, turn up to take Quinn in for questioning, but with Skye’s life in the balance, they decide to wait and help Coulson first.
Fitz/Simmons find out about GH, which stands for Guest House, a secret facility where Coulson was treated after the Battle of New York, and the bus heads there, with Coulson, Fitz, Ward, and Garrett on the ground to find the drug and get out.
However, the Guest House has two operatives on site, and since Coulson doesn’t know the right answer to get inside, they have to break in – which Garrett is more than happy to assist with – and then take down the agents inside. While Fitz finds the drug, Ward and Garrett are unable to defuse the explosives rigged in case the agents on watch fail to protect the place. But Coulson finds a compartment labeled T.A.H.I.T.I., and he has to know what’s inside.
Fitz gets the drug back to Simmons just as she’s losing her last grip on Skye’s life, but after seieng inside that compartment, Coulson is worried about what the drug will do to Skye. Inside the compartment was a Chitauri soldier’s body (at least, I think that’s what it was, hard to tell since the last time we saw them, they were all in armor), connected to a bunch of drugs and preserved in a tube of liquid. It looked dead, but perhaps SHIELD was trying to revive it to attain its powers or learn more about how it functions.
UPDATED: Rewatched it, and I almost think it looks like a frost giant, only shorter, rather than Chitauri. Anyway, it’s something alien, whatever it is.
However, Coulson isn’t back in time to stop Simmons from administering the drug. Skye was dying anyway, so what harm could it do now, Simmons says. Skye seizes and her vitals spike for a few seconds, and then they level back out to normal. She begins to improve.
May is the only one who asks why Coulson was so worried about giving the drug to Skye, but while he says his concern was only that it would be torturous for her, like it was for him, I think the bigger reason is that it looks like he and Skye may now be part-alien.
With Skye on the mend, Garrett is ready to head out with Quinn. He gives him the bad news first, that the Clairvoyant never showed up to save him and Skye will live to testify against him for shooting her, he has some good news too: Quinn still has his tongue. A reference to an earlier threat that Garrett didn’t always let people keep theirs if they didn’t start talking.
I want to see more Garrett in the future! It took me a long time to come around on Bill Paxton, mainly because I thought he was a jerk throughout most of Twister, but I’ve seen the light, and I especially love his ability to play the badass and the bad guy. He was so much fun to watch in this episode, and plays especially well off Ward and Coulson!
My biggest concern now, though, is Fury. What is he gonna do when he finds out Coulson and his team infiltrated the Guest House and stole the drug to help Skye? With the Captain America sequel coming up in under a month, I hope this means there’ll be another crossover episode, and I hope that means we’ll see Fury again, though I hope when that time comes, he doesn’t live up to his name.
The other concern is the Asgardian woman that turned up at the end of the episode in Death Valley, Lorelei. She oozes trouble. Like, the wipe-out-an-entire-city kind of carnage. And it looks like the Lady Sif is coming to visit next week, so I hope that means she can get Lorelei under control before she wreaks too much havoc.
I skipped this episode and left it for later, and that was with good reason. Instead of building momentum, it faltered and lost momentum. The subplot with Ross trying to play his brother’s girlfriend and get rid of her is trying way too hard. Clark’s character is trying way too hard to seem crazy, and I can’t tell whether I should blame the writers, the director, or Zahn for that one…
The story this week was even weaker than last week’s, an employee comes to the group to try to make sure his boss gets named CEO of the company when she is suddenly up against another man who has less experience, but is younger. The psychology aspect seemed to be downplayed instead of emphasized, and that, too, was a fault. Too bad. It didn’t have a lot of potential, but it had some, and with the ratings the way they are, I doubt if it’ll hang around much longer.
Oh, and, if it wasn’t already clear, this one is being cut from the line-up. Slowly but surely, I’m getting my watchlist cleaned up so that there aren’t so many double-bookings!
More recaps from last week. Still getting there, but I’m getting closer!
