‘Yes Men’ stands as the third Thor crossover episode and, like ‘The Well’ and ‘Repairs’ before it, it’s great seeing the nine realms colliding onto on screens. That being said, the links don’t quite seem as relevant this time round and the fun, but fluffy, adventure comes as quite a disappointing change of pace considering the momentum the writers have worked so hard to build up over the last few weeks . . . but it was never going to last forever, I suppose.
Lady Sif, the badass warrior seen beating up the Destroyer in ‘Thor’ and falling for the big man himself in its sequel ‘Thor: The Dark World’, beams herself down to Earth (very spectacularly, I might add) in order to stop Lorelei, the evil seductress we met at the end of last week’s episode.
The Skye-rescue plot strand seems virtually wrapped up, save for a few lingering mysteries, and the team instead focus on this new threat. The action’s impressive and it’s great seeing Sif working alongside the team. But this week also lacks the dramatic heft of the recent episodes and, while some of the humour is thoroughly enjoyable, very little of the drama felt all that important in the grander scheme of things . . . but I may be wrong, of course.
