Review

Nick Fury returns and decides it's time for E.G.G to move to New York City! The gang, along with their newest member (much to Josh's disdain, yet of his own doing) James, packs up and ships out. While Josh sadly attempts to find his new base, Agent Rice vehemently attempts to ditch his new partner, Squirrel Girl! After a long, unproductive day, E.G.G finally finds their new base underneath Grand Central Station, and Agent Rice accepts that he's going to be stuck with Squirrel Girl for a while.

James Collins: Agent of E.G.G

“You’re fired.” Josh said to Eileen.

“What? Why?” Eileen asked.

“Um, the same reason you were avoiding me all day yesterday.” Josh said. “For bringing that… that guy into my base!”

“His name is James.”

“I don’t care if it’s Fred! He’s still in my base!”

“Actually, I’m Fred.” Acacia interjected. “He can be Tom.” Josh looked at her.

“Tom?” He said. “How can look at him and say Tom? I’d say Brandon maybe…”

“So, we’re good here?” Eileen asked, standing up.

“Sit down!” Josh ordered. “I’m not through with you!” Eileen sighed.

“Josh, he had nowhere else to go!” She said. “Kristen said he needed to rest.”

“There are benches in the park.” Josh said. “You know, where you found him!”

“Josh, have a heart, he’s a nice guy. And, you know, he’s kinda cute…” Josh snapped.

“There it is!” He said. “That’s the only reason you brought him here!”

“Oh come on!” Eileen said. “I haven’t had a boyfriend in years!”

“Well you can’t date him, it’s against the rules.”

“Number one, you broke that rule for months. And number two, he’s not even an agent!”

“Easily remedied!” Josh opened the door. “James!” He called. James walked up.

“Yeah?” He said.

“You’re an agent of E.G.G.”

“Oh sweet! So what do I-” Josh slammed the door in his face.

“Ha! Now you can’t date him.”

“You’re right.” Eileen said. “But now you have no grounds to fire me. You just made him an agent.” Josh paused.

“Wait… What just happened?”

“Eileen tricked you into making James an agent.” Acacia said. Josh stood there, dumbfounded.

“Oh…”

* * *

Oh is right. Looks like James is official now! And yes, Eileen officially has the hots for him. Thanks to Josh's obliviousness and easy gullibility (gee, do we really want him as Director?) James is now an agent of E.G.G. But will it last? Or will E.G.G figure out about his past... I mean, his future... well, his past, their future... it's confusing...

New E.G.G Base

Josh followed Nick Fury into Grand Central Station. It was empty at night, but not deserted. They walked past the large clock in the middle of the room. They walked through an archway and down a staircase. Fury approached a door that said ‘Employees Only’. He scanned an ID card and it unlocked. Fury opened it to reveal an elevator.

“Cram in guys.” Josh said as he, Fury, Eileen, James, and Acacia all got in. The elevator began to descend. “So, where else does S.H.I..E.L.D have secret bases stashed?” Josh asked.

“Classified.” Fury replied.

“Of course it is.” The elevator stopped, and opened into the brand new E.G.G Base.

“This was a proposed subway station that was abandoned in the late 90’s.” Fury informed. “It was determined too deep underground and too unstable for passenger transportation.”

“And you’ve got us down here!” Josh exclaimed. Fury looked at him. “Oh, S.H.I.E.L.D cover-up, right.”

* * *

Deep under the streets of Grand Central Station lies the brand new E.G.G Base, complete with an Inner Shell, Feeding Pen, Nests, and everything you need to run E.G.G. I liked the idea of an underground base and thought that an abandoned train station was a step up! It's cool and putting it under Grand Central makes it even cooler! Now E.G.G will be even closer to the action!

Fury is always watching...

James began to follow when Fury grabbed his shoulder and got close to his ear.

“I don’t know who you are or where you came from.” He whispered to James. “But I’ve got my eye on you.” James pulled away.

“Thanks, I’ll watch my back.” He said angrily, as Fury got into the elevator and left.

* * *

I couldn't resist the "I've got my eye on you" gag. I mean, Nick Fury's been in E.G.G how long? Yeah, it's past time! But now we know, even though James is safely integrated amongst E.G.G, he's still being watched. Very closely.

Agent Rice has a heart after all!

Rice exited the elevator to the roof of the building he had told Squirrel Girl to wait for him on. He popped an umbrella and began to scan the roof. Then he spotted Squirrel Girl curled up under a water tower, protecting herself from the rain. He approached and looked under to see her sniffling and wiping away tears.

“Hey,” He said. She looked at him.

“Hey.” She quietly replied. “I thought you weren’t gonna come back.” Rice shook his head and held out his hand.

“No way. Now come on, we got cool spy stuff to do. Partner.” Squirrel Girl sniffled, then smiled. She took Rice’s hand and he pulled her up and under the umbrella. They walked into the elevator, and on to their mission.

* * *

Well, it looks like Agent Rice isn't such a d-bag after all! I know you all were heartbroken when Agent Rice sent Squirrel Girl up to that roof with no intention of coming to get her, but when it started to rain, even Agent Rice couldn't hang her out to dry! Looks like this beginning of a beautiful relationship!
