I'm digging Triplett. He's a much better team heavy over Ward.

I still liked this episode. It was a set up for the finale. This could have easily been the first half of a two hour season finale.

I'm drawing a blank on Skye now. At first I thought she was Jessica Drew but now her parents were "monsters". Some theories.

1) Asgardian? Maybe like Loki, Frost Giant type.

2) Kree. I'm guessing she is the "pin" skin kree. Her parents were blue? This may explain how she handled the alien DNA in her.

I read on Zapit that it's looking very good the series gets renewed.

Wait until next week when they get their plane back, only to have Hydra infest it with snakes... and that will be when Fury shows up... "ENOUGH  IS  ENOUGH!!!!"

I though he didn't know his brother was inside??  

Either way, Ward does have a "much darker side", I mean, considering he murdering a whole bunch of fellow agents in cold blood.  If he can be redeemed after that, or if it's part of some "master plan" I may have to stop watching this show.  Hopefully Ward will either be killed in the finale, or get thrown in jail, or become a full fledged evil member of Hydra (which he already is anyway...).  But if coulson/fury take him back...  forget it - the show deserves to be cancelled.

I liked this episode. It was sort of a mellower one that hopefully leads to alot of all out action next week.

I especially liked the background on Ward. I've dislked the character since he was intro'd. I think my main problem with him has always been the actor playing him. He has and still comes across as a frat boy jock who thinks he's cool and nothing like a Lethal Weapon type. But this gave alot of insight as to what makes him tick. I thought those scenes were well done and well written. 

Wait...when did we already know Garrett was a cyborg? This was new to me when it was revealed. I assume this was hidden from SHIELD so how did he get through all the numerous security/body scans a field agent must go through in his career and not get detected?

I liked the whole interview stuff and the hard copy files scenes, especially the shoving the cabinet out the window.

Love the Howling Commando stuff. I have a feeling the coin tracer will save our sunken techs.

Also noticed this episode was directed by Roxann Dawson who is best known as half-Klingon B'Ellanna from Star Trek:Voyager. Lots of Trek alumni are directors it seems.

Yeah, Triplett is showing a little range in the acting then Ward, but then, Ward is supposed to act that way "No feelings, It's a weakness".  Which, I think this back story was showing that he might not be the cold blooded killer everyone thinks. 

@Elbaz, I think you got something there, with the Blue Kree being "Monsters"  Especially, the way that alien looked in the TAHITI episode.

I like the episode, It wasn't all flashy with explosions and stuff, only because its was to set up the final episode. 

I understand why YOU gave it a C , but I think you were wrong on some of your review points.  I thought this gave a little more insight into Skye's & Garrett's past more then Wards.

I didn't catch all the fake names that were used in this episode, were there any significance to these names or were they just random names?

@Monkeyfoot, In an earlier episode, they showed Garrett putting on his shirt revealing the metal on his rib cage.  I didn't at first link it to "deathlok" program, I thought it was more of the centipede program.

Maybe Skye is a Skrull, and was 'locked' into a human form, while her parents were raging the Skrull look! the Kree was there to exterminate them, but got killed. HHHMMMM?????

Wait a second. Who the hell said they were SHIELD agents. that busted Ward out? Big assumption there Jensen.

lazarus 5/7/2014 10:24:21 AM

Anyone catch the one screw up in the episode? When Tripp fires his grapple line into the building, he anchors it into a drop down ceiling tile. You know the ones made out of material like styrofoam? I told my wife that was BS because no way that holds any weight.

I thought the episode was a solid B .
