Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Reaction: "Self Control" (4x15)

Spoilers! Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. contains PG-13 level content.

A couple of weeks ago, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. delivered one of the best and most shocking episodes of the season... and the entire series! How did it all go down? While we wait for the series to return in April, let's discuss!

My Favorite Moments

★ The twists in this episode were fantastic. The one that really got me was that Fitz was the LMD, not Daisy. That was absolutely shocking, and I loved it.

★ Seeing a whole fleet of Daisy-bots was creepy as heck, but I'm putting it under "favorite moments" because it was such a good addition to the episode.
★ I appreciated May's arc ending the way it did... and that we don't have to worry about her being a threat anymore. (I know, I'm sorry, that's kind of mean.)

★ Jemma and Daisy's hug gave me so much life. It's been a while since we had a friendship moment between those two, so seeing them unite to take on almost all of their robot teammates was heartwarming.
★ I told you Aida would be the one to kill Radcliffe.

★ This whole episode was just incredible. More on that later. But first...

My Least Favorite Moments

★ Watching Jemma stab Fitz wasn't pleasant--and it can't have been pleasant for her either. I wonder if she'll have any long-term emotional effects from it.

★ The Framework?! ... ?!?!?!?

★ Jemma's dead? This is so confusing to me. If Jemma is able to transfer to the Framework, is she going to materialize in a coffin?

★ Who's on Fitz's arm? I've seen some theories that it's going to be Aida, and... boy, would that be creepy.

★ Coulson's teaching against Inhumans? If the Framework fixes their biggest regret, I find that this reveals some startling things about Coulson's psyche.

★ Why is May with Hydra?

★ Ward is back?! What? I mean, I totally called it when Daisy mentioned a boyfriend, but... I have some concerns. Obviously.

★ I have so many questions, and I'm sure you do too. Especially about how all of the S.H.I.E.L.D. team members' "biggest regrets" seem to be... terrible.

I guess we'll see...

★ This whole pod of episodes is being billed as "Agents of Hydra," which makes me extremely uncomfortable.

Favorite Quote
"Through all the insane crap we have gone through, the one thing I've known without a doubt–the whole time–is you and Fitz belong together. This is not how your story ends." - Daisy Johnson


This was my favorite episode of the season and probably one of my favorite episodes of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. ever. It was incredible. Stunning, thrilling, and packed with twists at every turn. I'm honestly still in shock that we were gifted with it. Kudos to everyone involved. It was cinema-level of television, and it was practically perfect in every way.

Did you see "Self Control"? What did you think?
