Thor 2: The Dark World


Somewhere out there, an obsessive is furiously writing fanfic about Tom Hiddleston playing Captain America. That person is about to have a fantastic day. Thor: The Dark World featured a little undercover work facilitated by the prankster God, complete with a gender-bending Thor and a cameo from the star-spangled Chris Evans, but it turns out that they let Hiddleston try out the shield, too. Watch for yourself and imagine Hiddleston punching Red Skull:



“The Well” was the most anticipated episode of Agents of SHIELD since the pilot, with Star Trek: TNG actor Jonathan Frakes behind the camera, guest star Peter MacNicol, and, of course, the cross-promotion with Thor 2. Fortunately for ABC and the series’ steadily falling ratings, “The Well” was also the SHIELD‘s best hour by a large margin. The Thor 2 insertions, while unnecessary, didn’t stick out like a sore thumb, and actually worked with the main story of Dr. Elliot Randolph’s (MacNicol) Asgardian identity. The B-story of Ward’s Tragic Past was more of a promise than the fulfillment of one, but it also led to the nice surprise of him taking up Melinda’s invitation for some sexual healing. (Please don’t let this be a fake-out.) All in all, “The Well” fired on all cylinders: character development, plot, humor, and illustrating the ways crazy people become even crazier once they discover the existence of supernatural beings. Coulson, too, returned from the naive robot version of himself in last week’s “The Hub” to reclaim his role as every white-bread middle-aged dude’s slightly more badass version of himself. Through his wits, his famous friends (he’s such a name-dropper), and his apparent obsession with expensive pens, Coulson saved the day by performing some improvisational heart surgery.
