When Marvel's Agents Of SHIELD debuted in 2013, it generated quite a bit of hype because it was a television tie-in to the ultra-successful Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). The excitement for the program quickly lost steam as the first half of Season 1 sputtered along uneventfully. Luckily for fans, the show was able to redeem itself in the second half of the season and use the events from Captain America: The Winter Soldier to reinvigorate interest in the program. Building upon the momentum gained at the end of the first season, Agents Of Shield continued to drive the story forward with Coulson discovering the truth about the etchings that he and Garrett carved and HYDRA moving in to obtain the Obelisk for their own nefarious purposes. The development of SHIELD having to go underground due to the public (and military) reaction to the infiltration by HYDRA also played a large role this season, essentially seeing HYDRA and SHIELD exchange roles. Now that the purpose of the Obelisk (The Diviner) has been revealed as the carrier for the Terrigen Crystals (left by the Kree, of which Guardians of the Galaxy villain Ronan the Accuser was a member), the doors have been opened for the introduction of the Inhumans into the MCU prior to the filming and release of their movie. With Skye also being revealed to be the Terrigen Mist powered Inhuman Quake, and HYDRA leader Whitehall seemingly dead, fans are in for a fast paced and super-powered second half of Season 2.
