“All the Madame’s Men” Marvel’ Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. continues to build towards the season endgame as Madame Hydra accelerates her plan.

“Ascension” Season 3 of Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD closes off with the promise of a death fulfilled and Hive’s story apparently fully resolved.

“Emancipation” Captain America: Civil War infects Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD with the mandatory annual tie in that reminds us that the show is part of this shared universe.

“Failed Experiments” Coulson tries to take the fight to Hive in order to end that threat once and for all as Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD begins the home stretch towards the final episode of the season.

Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD – Season 3 Episode 17

“The Team” Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD brings the Secret Warriors together to mount a rescue mission while Hive’s influence creates a lot of mistrust.
