Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. keeps amping up the super spy intrigue and superhero drama. Here is what we loved about “Girl in the Flowered Dress”.
Magic and Fire! – The opening scene involves a man doing above average street magic in Hong Kong. But he really wows the crowd when he busts out his show-stopping move: flames! Starting and/or controlling fire is nothing new in the fantasy world, but this scene is so well done you can’t help but like it.
Girls in white dresses – Who exactly is the girl in the flowered dress? She’s friendly but then turns not so friendly for our poor street magician. She’s got the number one skill for every female super spy or bad guy: the power to flirt her way in anywhere.
Car chase! – You know you’re a super villain of you can elude even Agent Coulson in a car chase. In a Jetta no less! Sure, this guy’s got some technology on his side, but you gotta give the man props for getting away from Phil.
Betrayal and desire! – Skye has had her own agenda all along. We can’t help but wonder if her rendez-vous with a baddy is all about betrayal or lust.
