Agents of SHIELD – S2E16 – Afterlife – Recap...

The episode opens on a used car lot. A low rent Buddy Garrity is trying to get Coulson in a muscle car.

At Coulson’s base, now home to Real SHIELD, Gonzalez and Bobbie are discussing the end of last week’s episode. Calderon is down. Finally, I can stop calling him shaved head jerk face. Gonzalez...
