While I await Kevin Garcia's always awesome breakdowns of Agents of SHIELD, I would humbly like to say this about tonight's episode: "Afterlife" was damn good.

So, here's a spoiler-light recaplet.

Reversals, betrayals, shifting alliances, a friendship restored, and puns. Those were almost as good as the re-appearance of two characters either long absent or feared gone.

This episode primarily serves to set several major pieces into place for next week's big flashback reveal showing how Agent May got her nickname. Still, there is time for action, humor (see above: puns!), and character development, all of which bodes well for the future of the "real" SHIELD.
