That's about right - saw it last night via on demand. I was a little underwhelmed by the episode. Be interesting to see what happens in the finale. I also saw 'Winter Soldier' over the weekend, and was really expecting stronger tie-ins with the series.

AoS is a tie-in to the movies, not the other way around. Last weeks episode was a filler, setting things up for tonight's, which further sets things up for the Season Finale, which is 13 May.

Four more episodes, including tonight's.

Great episode last night, tho a little bitter-sweet! I love how Joss Whedon has characters written, especially their banter / interaction with others. Even his simplest characters tend to be complicated and his most complicated the simplest. It's absolutely genius! A perfect example is below -


VERY MINOR SPOILERS!!!!!!



Agent Eric Koenig (Patton Oswalt): [during an interrogation sequence with several of the Agents, each being interviewed separately] You wash up on a deserted island alone. Sitting on the sand is a box. What is in that box?
Agent May: A machete.
Agent Triplett: A SatPhone so I can call someone to get me off the island.
Agent Fitz: How big is the box?
Agent Koenig: Just say the first answer that comes into your mind. What's in that box...?
Agent Fitz: Simmons
Agent Simmons: That'os a hard one... Let me think... [short pause, looks seriously at Koenig] The T.A.R.D.I.S.
Agent Skye: I wanna say my laptop, fully charged... but I don't want to seem subversive with The Rising Tide and all....
Agent Koenig: You're over-thinking it.
Agent Skye: The laptop would be stupid anyway, there's no WiFi....


Absolutely awesome, subtle character writing!
