Agents of SHIELD S3 Midseason Finale

Today after a long day of work I rushed home to watch the final episode of Agents of SHIELD this season (aka the midseason finale). This was S3 Episode 10 "Maveth" Here's a synopsis: Fitz finds Daniels and convinces Ward that they will need him to find the exit point. Mack sends May and the Secret Warriors (Johnson, Campbell, and Gutierrez) to find Simmons while he, Morse, and Hunter infiltrate the castle and secure the portal room. Simmons escapes herself after Campbell shuts down Hydra's power, and discovers several Inhumans that Malick has gathered as an army, including Garner. Simmons agrees to unleash Lash on Hydra before making her way to the others. Fitz and Daniels lead Ward to the ruins of an ancient civilization where they manage to get away, while Coulson catches up to Ward and overpowers him, forcing him to follow them.

At the exit, Daniels attacks Fitz: the Inhuman had killed Daniels as Simmons escaped, and now inhabits his body. Ward attacks Coulson when he is distracted by Fitz, but Coulson uses his prosthetic hand to kill Ward, by applying pressure to crush his rib cage, while Fitz uses a flare to destroy Daniels' body. Fitz and Coulson return to Earth, but the Inhuman secretly does as well, now inhabiting Ward's body.

This entire season have been go, go, go and this episode was no different. There were many OMG moments.

Half of the episode takes place on Earth while the other half takes place on the Alien planet. First of all Mack makes an excellent Director, I hope he remains director for a while. It was great seeing the creation of Secret Warriors, glad Gutierrez didn't die when he was shot. Loved Macks nickname for them (The Power Rangers). Not sure if it was a good idea of Simmons letting Lash out.. I mean he killed all those inhumans. I wondering if she'll feel responsible for that.

All the stuff on the alien planet was great. Phil got his revenge and watching him crush Wards chest and kill him was brutal. Of course when I saw the slug things coming out of Daniels mouth when his body died I figured it was going to go into Ward and sure enough there he is at the end. But I think this was a brilliant way to keep the actor around but kill off this terrible person (Ward).

The first half of this season have been amazing and I can't wait to see where they go for the second half.. it's gonna be some must see TV for sure.
