 Love it! This show is finally picking up.

The mere mention of the Kree is planting a seed for future MCU movies. GotG (Ronan), the Inhumans and Captain Marvel. 

Also just read on CBR that Glen Talbot will be showing up and played by Adrian Pasdar. 

Excelsior!

 Gotta agree, that was a way better tie-in for Thor: The Dark World than the actual tie-in episode they did.  Wasn't just another "Hey, look!  An unknown artifact/piece of technology!  Let's lick it and see what happens"-type of story.  Proper superhero throw-downs with everymen stuck in the middle, a clear-cut threat and some more mystery.

(Sarcasm) Going out on a WILD limb here, but I'm gathering that Skye will turn out to be Ward's true love or whatever.  That's one secret the show's not really hiding all that well.

Agree that show is picking up, but still extremely annoyed with the poor writing.  I again go back to the way the characters are written to overreact to Skye’s near death. Blatant attempt to make a horse(bleep) character relevant to the show. From Maye’s beating the crap out of Ian Quinn and Coulson’s subsequent hints that he’d kill him if Skye died, to this episode’s overdramatic "If you had died I would have never forgiven him" crap from Ward. Just kill the character off already, for God’s sake. She’s completely unsalvageable. Skye must die.

And it was made clear several episodes ago that Maye and Ward were nothing more than f— buddies. So now all of the sudden she’s going to get jealous? And she’s going to give longing looks at the bed knowing that Ward was under the spell of a sorceress and not acting with free will? Please. Complete 180 degree turn for the character. Also, she’s obviously much older than Ward and there’s no hope for a long-term relationship; she’s going to be shocked he has feelings for someone in his age range?

It would have also been nice if they could have avoided the cliched, "It was an honor to fight alongside you" from Lady Sif at the end of the episode.

While I’m starting to actually enjoy the show, it would help if they had writers who (a) know how to write likeable characters, and (b) have actually been in a real relationship so they know how real people act in these situations instead of the "Parents’ Basement Fantasyland" tripe we’ve been getting.

I'll also add that I  don't care how bad-ass May is, when a guy as big and as skilled as Ward punches a woman the size of May, her jaw/cheek bone would be broken, and she'd have been knocked out (and don't get me started on the damage that Lorelei should have done to her).

Did anyone pick up the fact Agent Ward was raped?

I really want to see how the aftermath of Winter Soldier affects the show. I wonder if some of them will show up on the movie, even if its for like a few seconds.

 A little bit of Lady Sif goes a long way!

BTW - A belated happy birthday to Jamie Alexander.  You go, girl!

 @GreatOne.  A woman as bad-ass as May knows how to roll with punches.  Also, if you've watched either Thor movie, you'd know that's how they talk.

Great one@ to say the writing sucks is wrong.  I'll admit I (and most people) didn't like Sky at first, but that was because the whole first half of the season was setting this show up apart from the movies. Not just some commercial for them.  I think the writers have done a great job in creating characters you want to see grow as the show progresses.  Making Skye an 084, was a  great idea.  Plus it was obvious that they were always gonna go with the love triangle.  May's pretending she doesn't have feelings, and Ward's conflicted between Skye and Maye. MAye wasn't upset with Ward for the boot knocking with Lorelei, its that he likes Skye more ther her.

Best episode iof the series so far for me. Probably my second favorite was the beserker staff one. Both were full of action and had interesting guest stars, some good character development, and were linked into the Marvel movieverse.

Like ST:TNG it took most of the first season to find the proper way to create the series. I think this episode shows the series most fanboys and general audiences were expecting.

The Kree now seems the most likely explanation for the blue corpse than my thought it was Baron von Strucker from some Hydra/tesseract experiment. The fact that Coulson brought up the subject of aliens seems to confirm that.

For those who don't like Skye her being killed off is unlikely for the time being. I could tell from the beginning they were tailoring her for some mysterious secret and the  strange origin, the 084 status, and now the "Kree" infusion is confirming that. I bet the start of a reveal will begin in a season cliffhanger.

Fight choreography has greatly improved from the crappy fights that happened in the first episodes. And yes I agree that May should have been laid out dead from Lorelei's Asgardian strength blow. The out might be as stated above is that her top notch battle skills might have allowed her to roll with the punch.

I love me some Jaimie Alexander and I loved her appearance as Sif. But my only complaint might be that her performance was sort of one note. It was a permanent stoic Warrior Princess mode, even when Lorelai taunted her about Thor. It made me hesitate about still wanting her to be WW. The badassery part is easy. Diana would also need some subtlety.  I'm sure she's capable of more than Badass Girl but this episode wasn't written to allow it.
