AVClub: With the end of the previous episode fresh in viewers’ minds, and Daisy’s visions of an inevitable S.H.I.E.L.D. agent’s death in the future, you would think that S.H.I.E.L.D. itself would be in dire straits. Other than a broken leg, though, Coulson and the gang are right back at it. One team is zipping around the world, performing some questionable missions; the other team participating in some Mad Men-meets-Orphan Black spy games. It’s all very endearing, but it’s all very rushed–you can tell the writers are both scrambling to set the table for the season finale, and pad for time until that point. “Singularity” is a fine episode, but it’s also a fast one, which allows the stakes to be raised, but at the expense of giving its characters the proper room to breathe.
