    The cellist from Portland! and it's Root! :) and boy, i'm glad i didn't read the description of the episode as it hinted about the cellist. That was a nice surprise.

    Poor Coulson.

    good episode. the series has definitely picked it up in the second half of the season.

    Ok now fill me in, who the heck were May and her mom talking about at the end? Was that someone we should already know about? or someone else in the Marvel universe that's known to fans?

    Were we supposed to know the cellist?

    I believe Coulson did say in an earlier episode that he had a special someone who he had to leave behind when he "died."

    Just that she and Coulson were a thing.

    I'm really glad that Skye found out about Ward already so it doesn't get long and drawn out.

    It was also spelled out in Iron Man 2, prior to the Avengers. Pepper Potts knew all about the Cellist in Portland, and Tony got jealous that Pepper was paying so much attention to Agent Coulson.

    That was in Avengers. After Coulson drops off the packet on the Avengers with Tony, Pepper leaves with Coulson. As she is leaving, she says, "Oooh, I want to hear about the cellist. Is that still a thing?" Coulson replies, "She went back to Portland."

    Lol. I googled the name Marcus Daniels and saw that it is indeed a marvel villain called blackout. I love it when they bring in villains from the comics. :)

    I was surprised that Skye did not think, even for a second, that the traitor might be Melinda. The evidence that it was Ward was quite persuasive, but I did not expect Skye to be so rational about it so quickly.

    I was also surprised that Skye did not use an ICE gun on Ward and capture him. Did she have second thoughts that he was the traitor? I don't think so, since she seemed quite certain. Does she really think she can outsmart him and get information on Hydra? Or does she think she can turn him from the dark side?

    It seems the best lie detector in the world, combined with a terribly incompetent operator, can be beaten by sticking a pin under your fingernail (awfully long pin he had in there). Ironic that the guy was absolutely right about the need for following protocol, but he got himself killed anyway because he was so bad at administering the lie detector test.

    Good episode.
    Ward's certainly playing out his con game on Skye.

    Wonder what May wants with Maria Hill?
    Will she find her at Stark Tower?
    (And Ontario looked suspiciously like Griffith Park.)

    Did I hear correctly that Triplett is the grandson of Gabe Jones?

    Did she even know there was a traitor before Melinda left, Skye saw Ward & Eric's radar blips in the Death Closet, and then found Eric dead there?

    I don't think there was ever any room for reasonable doubt...unless I'm not remembering it right, she found out there was a traitor when she found out that Ward had killed Eric.

    Amen!

    Even if she had a little doubt, Ward told her that he had talked to Eric just before they left, and she knew he was dead, so indeed, there was solid proof for her.

    I'm assuming Koenig asked everybody if they were Hydra instead of just Ward.

    Skye's real last name is Poots. That must have been painful in grade school.

    Coulson is the calmest angry guy on tv.

    Skye is a Mary Sue. Confirmed.

    (But really, just because the writers admit to the annoying thing they're doing, doesn't mean it's not still annoying.)

    Best line in the show...

    Eric: "You are on a desert island and there's a box on the beach. What's in it?"
    Simmons: "A Tardis"!
