Good episode.  Not as good as last week's, but almost as good.  The show is finally gaining traction and the pace seems to be picking up.  I am glad I stayed with it so far and am looking forward the rest of the season.

I think the show is almost at the pace that we've been waiting anxiously for it to get to.  Any fan of Joss Whedon's past T.V. shows knows that he just needs about one full season (or close to it) to hit his stride and get a show up to the level of awesome that we know he's capable of.  MAOS is just about to that stride, and I think that by season's end, we will have the show that we have all been waiting for and expecting since we first heard it was coming.

I give it an A because of the serious character developments that happened.  Skye is something more than human for sure and Coulson is as well.  That is all confirmed now.

By bet?  Skye is Jessica Drew/Spider-Woman and Coulson may be Vision.

I think Coulson may be Vision and  Skye maybe the Celestial child whose mother was Mantis.    This story arc  has ties to both the Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy.

Yes indeed a great episode!!

I love that Skye's story took such a completely unexpected turn. I was assuming she would end up maybe being May's daughter or something along those lines. Not the revelation she is something powerful and danger and death has been in her wake.

Now we have to wait another couple of weeks, dammit!

 I don't think Coulson is the Vision.  The vision is an android not a Cyborg.  Clearly Coulson is human...mostly.  And I don't think they'll waste the vision on TV

Skye being the Celestial child would be cool too.

I liked this episode a lot and where the series is going.  I'm dying to see who the clairvoyant is as well as what powers Skye has.

Did anyone catch Skye mention the name, "Bucky Barnes" at the memoriam? If the show continues into April, we may hear that name again during the tie-in to Captain America: Winter Soldier.

I think the Clairvoyant has the mind gem.

The scene with May chattering in the car with Coulson shouldn't be overlooked. It was a great little scene where the actors got a chance to interact in a way that was closer to theater; I think the audience benefitted from it. The fight scenes were incredible.

We see more glimpes into May's character, especially her reactions when she listened to the horrific testimony of that former agent. More and more, we see S.H.I.E.L.D. is really not that cool of a place to be. The first sign was how Nick Fury manipulated in The Avengers. All that is hard to reconcile, even with Skye's positive attitude about her past. The speech at the end. Skye has youthful naivete. Coulson is... damaged, and in need of some inspiration in a world of hardened, cold government agents. I'm not saying we should focus on the negative in life, but we shouldn't adopt a myopia either to things that are wrong, especially if we can do something about it. Of course, this is just one episode. I guess I feel some relief that Coulson has a better outlook, but I don't think for a character that sophisticated and likable that that's the end of that. 

"Seeds" was a different kind of story that switched gears from "The Magical Place" episode. That's cool, but for me, it wasn't as exciting. I wish it was exciting because it was a worthy story about Blizzard, his friend and Leo Fitz. That sort of dip in episode energy happens all the time and I can forgive it. I still like the show. I think Marvel takes chances and goes against the conceited, uppity Hollywood grain and I love it!

 I think they ended it wrong.

When Fitz said he knew how to stop the device. I started smiling cause i thought i knew how it would end.

It didn't happen that way.

My way is better. I thought Fitz was going to grab a parachute and jump out of the plane through the eye of the storm. (this would have shown the growth of the character from when he hesitated to save Simmons). Instead we get a plane doing things a plane can't do. 

So his idea was to fly to it. What a genius!
