In the wake of re-surfacing of Centipede, Shield recruits Mike after their last not-so-warm encounter, in order to balance the scales against Centipede's super-soldiers. At this end Centipede is looking for technology which would allow them to stabilize the serum fully. Amidst all these is the myth of a Clairvoyant and Shield has never been at such a downside of advantage at discerning the true intentions of their opponents. Written by enigma

I really like this episode, I dare say it's underrated, it showcases a lot of the things I came to love about the show, particularly the way they start to connect the threads of the story and it start to all makes sense, there is also clever writing around the twist you only notice after you know what it is, there is also a surprising amount of heart and the scene between Mike and Coulson when they discuss his future got me teary eyed, with hindsight it is even more powerful.
