Lady Sif is on Earth, but has no personal memories of any kind. Meanwhile, Hunter considers his role on the team and Skye tries to hide her secret.

High Point

“Like this conversation, for example?”

Low Point

It would be nice if some of these secrets lasted more than one episode here or there.

The Review

This is taking the series in original directions, as we learn more about Bobbi and Mack’s plan and the Kree are formally introduced as a species. I give it 5 out of 6.

The effects have been seen before, but they’re all done well. At no time was I confident that I could point to the pixel at which the live action footage ends and the CGI begins. I give it 6 out of 6.

The story is well structured, and definitely helping to move things toward the season finale. Knowing that this is episode 12 of 22, I really wonder what is in store for the rest of the season, which won’t end until after Avengers: Age of Ultron comes out. I give it 5 out of 6.

The acting is very good from all of the regulars, and Eddie McClintock is a welcome addition for his (one time?) appearance. I give it 5 out of 6.

The production is excellent, with camera angles chosen to support the effects budget in fight scenes while still keeping things interesting enough to keep things interesting. There are few shows on the air that are planned this effectively in advance. I give it 6 out of 6.

The emotional response is very good. It feels more like episode 18 of 22, not episode 12. I give it 5 out of 6.

Overall, we’ve got a great episode once again. This show has been one of the strongest on the air since the release of Captain America: Winter Soldier last year. I give it 5 out of 6.

In total, Who You Really Are receives 37 out of 42.
