Obviously, since last episode, John has managed to once again give Zed the slip. This minor annoyance prompts Zed to use her psychic artistry once again in order to track down John & Chas' batcave. A couple of Doctor Who references later and now that the gang's all back together, it's off to solve a mystery.

This week's conundrum seems to revolve around the coveted single from Misplaced Abortion which, having rendered Rich temporarily deaf in season five of Skins, is now hell bent on freezing Constantine's old pals to death and subverting innocent children. This is no odder than the actual plotline which has a recording of the voice of Lucifer wreaking havoc upon the world.

This episode finally introduces us to one of the character we've all been waiting for since the...

So, my review of episode six can be pretty much summed up with a single, telling picture.  A little something that the props department handed to Jim Caviezel and said, 'Bet you you can't look casual carrying one of these puppies...' 


'Nuff said, really...

As episode starters go, we're informed that a guy 'jumped' out of a building to become sidewalk salsa and the police aren't really paying any real attention to it, while Samaritan is aware of the communications going between who ever assisted the jumper and the owner apparent of the truck (or at least its cargo).  But John isn't involved - he's beating up a man in an eaterie because the man in question is annoyed that the pastry chef has slept with his wife and intends to shotgun him to death (like...

I'm always surprised by how easy it appears to gain access to secret meetings in high security buildings without anyone raising the alarm.

Where are the security services, cameras, checkpoints, armoured doors? Why aren't sensitive meetings held on the top floor of skyscrapers? Why does there always seem to be easy access via fire doors?

HYDRA agents brazenly walk into a UN meeting and start disintegrating people while Gen. Talbot is speaking. This sparks global outrage, which is the natural consequence of melting Italian ambassadors.

S.H.I.E.L.D. are splashed all over the news as terrorists. Talbot is answering to his "tame" senator, who happens to be Christian Ward, brother of Grant Ward who is currently being all concilliatory and cryptic in Coulson’s basement....

We are off to a solid start to the season with some great story lines and strong female leads. Aside from the predictable reveal that the mountain men are harvesting the blood of grounders this is a good episode.

Clarke – starts of a little less exciting than the others, makes you want things to move along a bit. She – rightly – suspects the mountain men have something to hide after noticing a badly hurt guard recovers very quickly. Cue some rather awesome shenanigans by Clarke she finds out that the grounders are being used for their blood. Actually, this doesn't really upset me as much as the writers were going for I think, the grounders...

After a very brief 'previously...' segment and a similarly brief Mystery of the Week in the form of a detonating miner we're back in a dingy basement with John and Chas. The debate as to whether Constantine actually smokes or not continues as he carries around a lit cig with him for a while before Chas puts it out without it ever getting near his lips.

Following on from last week we get introduced properly to Zed, who appears to be some kind of psychic that has been compulsively drawing pictures of John. Comic fans should be pleased to see re-imaginings of classic Hellblazer covers around the room. I know I was.

Their initial meeting doesn't exactly go well with both of them pulling parlour tricks and John pulling a disappearing acte before entering full on...

Thankfully I do not appear to be a psychopath.

Henry is called to investigate a package seeping blood onto Det Martinez's partner's desk (more of him later), it's a human heart, expertly removed, while the victim was alive.

The victim and circumstances to her death are basically a copycat Jack the Ripper killing, with Henry having a strong suspicion that his long-lived nemesis Adam is Jack, and is now starting again. 

When he finally gets his hands on the body, he is amazed at the accuracy of the wounds in comparison to the Whitechapel murders, which he would know since he examined the final body back in the 19th century.

It's a good attempt at murder replication, but not perfect, Henry finds a clue from one of the tools used on the body, and an...

We're not messing about this week.

It's bonkers central!

Everyone seems to be stressed, afraid, cracking up, psychotic, flying off the handle or looking forward to genocide, and all in the first few minutes !

We start with a Navy wedding dinner, which ends up with corpses aplenty, covered in same substance that the Obelisk transforms people into.

This is a HYDRA experiment on the way to weaponising the mysterious alien artefact for nefarious purposes. Well I'm assuming it's nefarious purposes, maybe they're working on a massive sculpture and thought they'd just turn everyone to stone to save on artist wages. 

The opening of the episode is really a red herring, or possibly a dead herring considering the body count. This week is more about the...

Welcome back to the 80's.

The 1880's. 

And, strangely the 1980's.

Both of these decades are mentioned in this episode, one as cover (the 1980's) for Henry to mask that he's talking about the other. 

This episode sees a body discovered in an old apartment that's due for sale, the body, partly eaten by rats has a hypodermic needle in one arm, and a gash to the head. The assumption is that he's an "ADJ" or Another Dead Junkie.  This contemptuous attitude of the investigating officer offends Henry and brings back memories of 1880, when the same buildings had 400 deaths due to a heat wave. 

It transpires that the victim is a boxer and reformed junkie, who's been at odds with a local property developer, the needle was administered after...

Flying cars, superheroes, gods, invisible Sky-borne aircraft carriers.  Agents Of SHIELD often skirts the fantastic, stretching the boundaries of the possible to breaking point. Within minutes of this episode, the boundaries are broken, jumped on and set fire to.


It is the mundane that fails it here...


Arch-Dick Lance Hunter is schmoozing a female mark on the beachfront,...

I know I said that Beth didn't really have much of a character last season, but there really wasn't any need to devote an entire episode to her. Because, as it turns out, she still doesn't have much of a character. But, for the sake of completeness, here's my recap of Beth's story.

It looks like we're back at the beginning. Rick's beginning anyway. I'm fairly sure this is the same hospital where Mr Grimes started the whole thing off five seasons ago. We're introduced to a bunch of potential red shirts. Head of the gang of hors d'oeuvres is the incredibly creepy Janis from FlashForward who has obviously been demoted from the FBI to a simple cop/sheriff. I wonder momentarily whether they are Rick's colleagues, but then realise that I don't actually care. They are pretty much...
