I enjoy Marvel shows much more than films and Agents of SHIELD most of all.
[AOS - 3x20 - Emancipation SPOILERS]
The Lincoln escape thing felt wrong. I kept thinking it must be a ruse. Lincoln can’t be that stupid. He can’t believe Daisy wouldn’t lie to him and give him to Hive. He wouldn’t give away his free will just to see her again. Or just to get out - he’d be changing one imprisonment for much more permanent one.
But of course he didn’t. It was all a ruse. May told him to man up and he did. And they set up a trap for Hive instead.
They send Lash. And he was able to destroy the parasites. He could’ve killed Hive. He had the power to destroy it. But he chose to protect Daisy instead. He freed her.
This was great but this is the second time we see Inhuman dying for Daisy. They did it last season with Raina and now Andrew Garner. If we add Tripp that’s three black people dead for Daisy’s sake. It’s becoming creepy even in-universe and really unnerving RL.
And now Mack has Elena’s cross. The one floating in space in Daisy’s vision of death. But they can’t kill Mack. They wouldn’t kill Andrew and Mack one after the other, right?
Hive is getting some Watch Dogs to experiment on. It just wants to save them. They just want to kill everyone like him. Still they don't deserve the result.
They don’t turn out very well but Hive only wants to grow and take over more bodies. It doesn’t care what they are as long as it can take them over. It doesn’t care about any of them as long as it can grow. Even Daisy is expendable.
So now Hive has the process that gives it new bodies. They are not perfect - they lose their humanity and never get the Inhuman uniqueness - but they are good enough for Hive to posses. That’s the only thing it cares about. Like when it got all it really needed from Daisy - it didn’t matter it was going to kill her. It’s a parasite. It only cares about growing. Never about people.
All Hive is made of is lies. It makes it’s followers believe in it just to chew them out and spit them out once their usefulness ends.
However, this is a better conflict than the one Avengers had. In Civil War I left thinking both Cap and Tony were wrong (and it was intended). Here I’ was thinking everyone was right.
One one hand Inhumans are perfectly reasonable being afraid of being catalogued. List have a way of leaking and Watchdogs (and random crazies or just scared) are just waiting for a target. This was bad enough when SHIELD was doing it last season. Didn’t get any less wrong.
On the other hand Talbot is justified feeling scared about Inhumans being used as weapons and with Hive trying to convert billions into his drones knowing about the threat is essential.
This is why Phil coming clean and telling him about everything. So many shows base the drama on lack of communication. It’s refreshing to have it otherwise.
