    Well, Melinda's on a mission to find her and there are only (2? 3?) episodes left, so I'd guess pretty soon...

    May seems so familiar, what other shows was that actress in? I felt like I knew her when I first saw her.

    She a doctor was in the last couple seasons of ER. She's striking me as quite a bit hotter in this show though. :) Maybe I just like tough girls..

    What pulled Skye out of her terror? They focused on her looking at the artwork in the bathroom: was that her being reminded of her roots, of "home"?

    I was going to delete my Season Pass if she didn't put the penny back up on top of the door. The fact that she didn't immediately recognize it as a warning sign was disturbing enough. :)

    Way longer ago, she was on "The Single Guy" with Jonathan Silverman.
    (I also saw her on ER, but I still think of her as from "The Single Guy" because that's where I first saw her.)

    Even more disturbing is the fact that super-spy Ward used such a clumsy and easily-defeated warning system... ;)

    Possibly, or maybe she just took a minute to think about it and calmed down. I didn't really interpret her reaction as "terror" so much as "this guy I really like and trust is evil and is betraying us!" (So shock more than fear.) She's pretty much been portrayed on the series as very rational; there are several times that she's come up with a plan when the others were ready to give up on something.

    For better or for worse, Ward is a very highly trained agent who has killed numerous times, and Skye is a hacker with no particular weapons training and little combat experience. If she misses, she's dead (or at least tortured until she revealed the location where the decryption would work, and then probably killed), so she may have figured that a straight out fight, even with some element of surprise, would not have gone well for her. At this point, Ward doesn't know that she knows he's a traitor, so she still has at least some amount of advantage (steering the plane to false coordinates, etc.).

    She's gotten much better looking as she got older.

    Well, there was no reason to think much about it, just then. After finding Eric, it made a lot more sense.

    He was in a rush, so give him that. :p

    You are not remembering it right. Skye did not see "Ward & Eric's radar blips in the Death Closet". Ward and Koenig's blips were in completely different locations (Ward was in the bathroom right next to Skye's blip).

    And your logic is confused. All that is necessary for Melinda to be a suspect, logically, is that Koenig was not known to be alive after the time that Melinda was known to have left. And that criterion was met.

    "when she found out that Ward had killed Eric" ?? What are you talking about?

    Knowing how TV works, Jones would be the first choice.
    The other surviving Commandos are second choices.
    Which is of interest since they seem to be grooming Triplett as the Ward replacement.

    (Although being a Howling Commando wasn't a big help to Koenig ;) )

    Anyone else taken aback when May leaves the secret outpost and just walks out the door. The next time we see her she is walking on a highway with no snow to meet her mom. Did May walk all that way? Wow, she is a fast walker and has great endurance!!!

    What Rob means that Ward confirmed it himself when he told Skye that he had already told Koenig that they were leaving when she already knew that he was dead.

    Which makes no sense as a response to my point that Skye did not consider for a second that it could have been Melinda. The instant she saw Koenig's body, she concluded that Ward did it. She did not think even for a second that it might have been Melinda. Despite the fact that she has never liked Melinda, and she does like Ward -- she was just kissing him and telling him he was a good person. A lot of people would have first considered the one they did not like, who just mysteriously left, as the killer, and blocked out the possibility that the one they liked might have done it. But Skye immediately saw Ward as the killer and traitor. That says something important about her character, something that was not clear before this episode.

    I agree that Ward saying he just talked to Koenig, when Skye had just seen his dead body, confirmed that Ward was the one. But I was talking about prior to that, before Skye got herself under control.

    Now I have to go back and rewatch.

    I swear Ward had mentioned that he had talked to Eric at a point in time *after* MM had left, and said so before Skye had found the body. Thus, when she found the body, it couldn't have been MM as the killer (unless the suspicion was that MM had returned). But I could well be misremembering.

    Apparently you do need to rewatch. When Ward came into the room to tell Skye about Koenig sending the information to the CIA and that Melinda was gone, Ward gave no indication of the relative times of those events occurring.
