AGENTS OF SHIELD SEASON 4 EPISODE 4 LET ME STAND NEXT TO YOUR FIRE REVIEW
The episode opens with Simmons hunting for an apartment for her and Fitz and she is on her way to an apartment that was recomended to her via email.She goes to the building and finds that it is unlocked with no one in the apartment, but then she finds Daisy, who sent the email.She needed help healing some bullet wounds from the watchdogs.
The chase ends with Robbie hitting a parked Quinjet that Coulson put in stealth mode.Back with Daisy and Simmons, they manage to find Hellfire who is in the area working at a fire works store and warn they him about watchdogs and tell him to come with them immediately Hellfire says that he will meet up with them at a storage unit next to the store after work.
co-workers died in an experiment and that they were all obsessed with a book that had mystical secrets.Coulson, listening in on the conversation picks up that his co-workers are the ghost that haunted May.
Back with Daisy and Simmons, they meet up with Hellfire at night and he opens his storage and watchdogs come out and he reveals that he was working with them.So Daisy and Simmons make a small escape by locking themselves in another storage room.Hellfire then finds them and grabs a chain and ignites it on fire and swings it back, but then Robbie shows up and grabs the chain, turns into Ghostrider and starts fighting with Hellfire, he quickly tells Simmons and Daisy to go next door and meet up with Coulson.They get next door and there is a nice reunion between the team which is great to see, especially with them being divided this whole season.
We then get back with the Ghostrider v Ghostrider lite fight which ends with them throwing each other around, the they bust through to the fire work store and then the whole building blooms with fireworks with Coulson,Mack,Simmons and Daisy escaping.
There were so many great characters that stood out for me this week, but the stand out was Phil Coulson, he just felt like the good old Phil from phase 1, using references towards the older SHIELD, being protective over Lola, and introducing SHIELD in the full name of Strategic Homeland Intervention Enforcement and Logistics Division.I also really enjoyed Coulson and Robbie interact, the chemistry between the two is a relation I enjoyed seeing and hope to see play out into the season.
Overall let me stand next to your fire has been one of my favorite SHIELD episodes ever, I will give it an 8.7 out of 10.I would like to hear your thoughts on the episode down in the comments below.As always thanks for reading,take care.
