    She had a penny dropped moment.

    Ward had already been talking about the hard drive, talked about "us", had kissed her and he didn't have a wound on his neck so he couldn't have opened it.

    And Melinda left a one way exit track in the snow. Previous tracks had been negated by the falling snow.

    But what I want to know is - exactly how did Skye leave a message for the team in the bathroom?

    And if you're thinking of her in a non sci-fi way, she was in 5+ seasons of E.R. She also has shown up in lots of other regular shows (5 episodes of Two and a Half Men), etc...

    Well, we all know that Ontario is in Canada, and Canada is right up there in the Arctic.

    P.S. Had to put the AC on tonight, even though it was -7 this morning (that's 19 in foreign heat).

    It is possible, you know, for humans to be both logical and emotional. It is perfectly reasonable for Skye to have realized where the overwhelming evidence pointed while at the same time being extremely upset by that revelation.

    Just because she kissed Ward a couple of times doesn't mean she was so madly in love with him that she would ignore all of the signs that pointed to him.

    When Ward told her that the reason he didn't originally accept her offer to talk was because he was afraid of his feelings for her, she responded, "I was just offering to talk, not have sex with you."

    In this very episode, she told Ward that the only reason she kissed him was because they had a "97% chance of dying". That doesn't sound like someone so blinded by love that nothing short of seeing Ward kill Koenig in person would have convinced her that he was guilty.

    While she had shown some interest in Ward, she had been extremely pragmatic about their potential relationship.

    The evidence pointing to Ward was so overwhelming that as hard as it was for her to accept, she couldn't deny where everything pointed. She didn't need to go through some complex analysis to have the initial gut reaction that Ward was most likely responsible.

    Nonetheless, she still took it upon herself to confirm not once, but twice, that Ward was Hydra. Until that point, she was not 100% certain. And that, by definition, means she was still open to the possibility that May was the Hydra agent.

    But there is a difference between being open to a possibility and irrationally blaming. Skye has never been shown to be one who irrationally blames people for things. The fact that she had had disagreements with May in the past would not have clouded her judgment any more than the couple of kisses she had with Ward.

    It is a big leap to go from being upset at a betrayal to irrationally blaming others. Just because both of those are based in emotion does not automatically mean a person in one state will also be in the other. People are not either 100% logical or 100% emotional beings; they are some mix of the two.

    Maybe we need to have two threads for each SHIELD episode, the john4200 version, and the other one without john4200 where we can actually talk about the episode. :(

    Or y'all could just stop taking the troll bait!

    Actually, you're both right.

    I didn't go check the dates, but she was on the *first* season or two of "er", and had an entertaining rivalry with Noah Wyle's character (John Carter). She left for at least several seasons (and did "The Single Guy").. then came BACK to "er" for many more seasons.. (I don't know if she lasted all the way through the end.. Ironically, even though "er" is one of my favorite shows of all time, I have a couple of seasons near the end unwatched -- back then I only had 1 or 2 tuners, and Tivos *couldn't* deal with "er"s annoying scheduling + padding properly, so at some point I chose to keep recording the 9pm show and I'd "get back" to er at some point. I still intend to, hopefully when Amazon has a full series set at some ridiculously low price.. $10-20/season aggregated.)

    I thought it was very interesting to see 'root' from "Person of Interest" on this show. Wow, she can act! Somewhat joking, but she was totally different than her root character. Even when the root character pretends to show emotion or something to get her way.

    Thanks all, I don't recall May on ER but I am quite sure now it was Eureka that I recall her so well in.

    Check her out in Joss Whedon's "Much Ado About Nothing," or her role as Fred/Illyria on "Angel."

    "A Hole in the World" is still one of the most incredible, heart breaking, and often overlooked TV episodes of all time.

    As long as he doesn't know that she knows, she's safe, because he needs her alive and well and in a certain location to de-crypt that hard drive (which apparently has a built-in, non-defeatable, GPS).

    This way she gets to keep tabs on him.

    But yeah, she should have climbed up there to see if he had a gun or something else worth "commandeering" .

    And if you had chosen the fight or flee option you would deserve a pink slip for cowardice, incompetence and a narrow minded faliure of logic.

    What she needs to do is to leave a note for the rest of the team and then attach herself to Ward to identify people higher up in the HYDRA organisation than Ward.

    What would be outstanding is if she held on to her lanyard and Fitz Simmons could find a way to track it at long range.

    Sorry, you are the wrong one. We all are. Only the all-mighty seer and master of the truth is ever correct.

    There, I just saved you from a lot of pointless arguing.

    Don't feel bad, we all just fail at television comprehension. We constantly misunderstand things. It's only natural that given our poor skills we come to the wrong conclusions, time and time again.

    I don't even know why we own televisions.

    If she chose to fight, she'd probably be dead. That's logic for you.

    The funniest part is that the purveyor of this logic is using fight or flight which is an instinctive choice, not a logical one.

    Ward needed her alive, so she wouldn't have wound up dead. She didn't know that though.

    But if you say that, you must be wrong as well.
