yeah, there seemed to be apprehension and pause after he said it. Almost like it was hypnotically programmed.

Oh, I appreciated the fact that Fitz was going to jump out of the plane to save Simmons. I just had a problem with Ward making the save when there are other competent people on that plane too. Coulson or May could have appeared out of nowhere and made the save just as easily as Ward but instead we got another episode where Ward shows up in the nick of time and saves the damsel in distress. In my opinion, it was just the weakest part of what was otherwise a really good episode.


Fitz will get to be the hero someday and knowing Whedon, die in the process. :P

Stealing the save last week made for a good moment this week.

Still no new clues about Coulson.

digging the two-man mission so far.

Coulson doesn't much like it when Skye and Simmons snuck a look at some files. And he really didn't like hearing that there was no extraction team planned for the rest of his team. So they went to go get them.

Coulson finds out about Skye's file, that the redacted parts mention an agent (who may or may not have been her mother) dropping her off as a newborn... but apparently there's more to this story that Coulson "can't" tell Skye and he asked May for help finding out more.
Honestly, I didn't quite catch what happened there...

Also... Coulson calls about his file but apparently he doesn't have access to his medical file. Uh oh...

I REALLY liked this one, too. I think they're getting better...


They were very vague about Skye, not even a crumb for us to speculate. :D

As for the redacted Skye stuff... could anyone tell what the picture was that May was looking at? I rewound it and freeze-framed it and tried to figure it out. It looked like a dead body but I couldn't tell any more than that, or even if it was one.


I like them dealing with superstuff as well. Remember in this universe the Avengers exist but they’re not really around.

Two-man team-ups, just like the old school JLA stories!

Alright, I am man enough to admit that I was wrong about Fitz and Simmons. I really like Fitz and Simmons is growing on me more now that they actually developed her character. The show has definitely come a long way since the pilot. That being said, the first 3 episodes of this series are episodes that I will probably never watch again.

You shut your filthy mouth! :smt013 :P

If they are going to kill anybody, then kill Ward.

They're building up FitzSimmons in a way it seems destiny that one will die.

I'll stick with my theory that Coulson was brought back some kind of way using Loki's scepter, or that the Chitauri really do have shapeshifting ability and he's an amnesiac Skrull.

I could see that.

I don't know why, but, when they were talking about one of Skye's parents being a SHIELD agent, I was hoping it was going to be "Tony Masters"...

Tonight's show has what looks the Wrecking Crew (they found an Asgardian... stick that gave them powers).

It's not that, though. There's a "Berserker Staff", apparently.


And Ward is "broken" after dealing with part of the anger stick... He's experiencing some rage issues and remembering some traumatic childhood memories. He doesn't trust himself now but Coulson says that, for Ward to admit that, it builds trust. But he thinks this professor they brought in (who "accidently" led the bad guys to the second part of the staff) is lying.

Ward goes in to interrogate him and, pretty angrily, tries to stab him.

Peter MacNichol (the professor) catches the knife and bends it.

Coulson comes in and says that he's Asgardian. Good thing, too, "otherwise it would be embarassing."

Coulson explained how he knew.

Heh... Coulson says "cases like this are personal to me". Yeah, they are.

I'd say Coulson's wrists are broken after watching him run. They just dangle and flop around :lol:

Oh good.
Ward's anger will wear off "in a few decades", according to Professor MacNicol

Honestly... I think it makes things more interesting (but I doubt it'll stick around.

So they went to the Irish monestary where the third part of the staff was hidden years and years ago, with monks who had taken a vow of silence.
And....the professor's stabbed.

Pretty good episode. Loved the twist with Ward going into May's hotel room.

Nice they mentioned Fitz's "illness" again. Wonder if that is ever going to lead to something. I've had a theory that someone might gain super-powers this season, if they don't have them already.
