Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Limited Art for Providence
I skipped out on the poster for "Turn, Turn, Turn." I didn't know how incredible and game-changing that episode would be. Since there are to be six posters and I can't possibly buy them all, I was going to wait, thinking that the later episodes would be more important. But Ward's actions last week were such a shock. No wonder they started with that one. "Providence" will be an emotionally trying one for the remaining agents now without a member they had come to rely on, who was part of their family, and with S.H.I.E.L.D. gutted and useless.
The more I look at this poster the more I love it. I first noticed how beautifully the characters came out. As the episode tease shows, our beloved agents are literally out in the cold. This poster, capturing just an expression of each one of them, lends the weight of being compromised and broken. Then I noticed that the now Hydra shield is actually a brilliant mix of both S.H.I.E.L.D. and Hydra. I was going to attempt something like that, but this one is better than anything I could have come up with. That sealed the deal. I think I need to set my alarm for this.
