Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Turn, Turn, Turn :: The Art of Level 7
Season 1, Episode 17 Preview



"This is a battle for S.H.I.E.L.D.'s soul and we're on the front lines."
—Garrett to Coulson

Remember when Fringe did a special series of posters celebrating the show just before the end? It was a very cool collection, and I bought three of them - at $43 a piece. Then I also had to buy frames for them. I spent a pretty penny that I shouldn't have but really, really wanted to. Now Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has their own series of 6 posters, released one at a time over the coming weeks, that are designed to tie-in with the last episodes of this season. They are limited editions of 100 for $50 each, so choose wisely if you don't have more than $300 to spend.

The first is "Turn, Turn, Turn" (no longer available), depicting our beloved S.H.I.E.L.D. team trapped with a rat, and like rats, in a maze. The site says it's backordered, but for some reason I can still add it to my cart. So does that mean it's not actually sold out? I have no idea, but I'm going to wait and see what the next ones are anyway. I would have mentioned this when I heard about it on Wednesday, but I ran out of time. They go on sale on the Thursday before the new episode for customers in the United States only. Unfortunately, the sales start at 1:00 AM PST, which means if I want one really bad then I will have to either stay up until 4:00 AM or never go to sleep. I find that ridiculous. I will be sick the next day if I do. I really have no chance, but I'll keep checking back. There may be one I can't live without.

*I should have gotten one, by the way. I wish I'd been able to afford them all and the 12 they made for season 2 the next year. With this episode, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. showed they really meant business, that this story was going if they hadn't already with entries like "The Magical Place." The first 16 episodes set up the pieces and "Turn, Turn, Turn" knocked them all down in a brutal way. Tying in with Captain America: The Winter Soldier, it flung the game board off the table and scattered the players to the wind, shattering trust and destroying the organization these agents dedicated their lives to. It was a heavy thing that changed everything moving forward, and it was all the better for it. There have been some staggering performances and jaw-dropping storylines since then that have all added to the richness of this series.
