Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. #1.20 – ‘Nothing Personal’ Review

I’m not really sure what kind of finale we’re building towards, but episode 20 certainly had me enjoying the ride.

Skye knows about Ward and throughout the episode she has to attempt to play him like he’s played the team. All while waiting for Coulson and the gang to work out what on earth is going on.

Even though we all knew the team’s moment of realisation was coming, there was still plenty of room for surprise. Most of it stemmed from Fitz’ reaction, which was moving and fantastically well-played by Iain De Caestecker. The tension continued throughout the episode and there were a couple of well-placed twists and turns building up to the terrifically exciting final set-piece.

All in all, ‘Nothing Personal’ is quite the contrary and, although some of the set-pieces were fun and Deathlok was as chilling as he’s ever been, it was the delicate emotional core that really stood out this week. 

9/10
