    Another possibility is that it is just a limitation of your brain. ;)

    Right back atcha. I've missed you. It's been a long time since we've been on the same side of one of these. It's a pleasure to watch you work.

    Of course. And there's a WarGames joke in Winter Soldier. Hence the wink.

    Ah, I have not seen it yet! ;)

    (what can I say, I'm easily confused... :D)

    My observations as a man:

    1) Women always go to the restroom together.

    2) Skye went to the restroom.

    3) There is only one other woman in the vicinity of the SHIELD base, Melinda May.

    4) ergo, Skye was waiting for May to arrive in the restroom.

    Perfectly logical course of action.

    I've just considered a new possibility, one that makes complete and total sense.

    THIS is how you admit you were wrong. You're unable to actually say "you know, you have a valid point" to someone else, so you give them props by using one of their points in what amounts to a non-sequitur.

    Got it.

    Perhaps we'll go from "Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement, and Logistics Division" to "Strategic Hazard Intervention Espionage Logistics Directorate".

    Or to "Supreme Headquarters, International Espionage, Law-Enforcement Division".

    Although I suppose we could go to "United Network Command for Law and Enforcement".

    I'm honestly curious about who will get the last word in this argument.

    My money is not on Ereth or JoBeth66.

    That's not sufficient to stop it.

    I suppose as long as we don't end up with CONTROL we'll be fine.

    Sure, you have a valid point. It should not be surprising that Skye is capable of making quick and correct logical deductions under extremely stressful circumstances, and she would never turn into an emotional quivering mass of jelly. Another valid point you made is that when she turned into a quivering mass of jelly that she was too logical to turn into, it was actually logical for her to do so, since there was nothing else she could have done to protect herself. Yet another valid point you made is that Skye could never have used the base's tracking and surveillance systems, as well as the NSA satellites, to figure out where Melinda went. That is clearly outside of Skye's capabilities, which seem to consist of making snap logical deductions and turning into a quivering mass of jelly. If only Skye could find something that could be used as a weapon to trap Ward. But you made a valid point that Skye is too inept to ever trap Ward. Skye's past experience helping to capture all sorts of powerful bad guys would never work against Ward, since Skye is just a quivering mass of jelly compared to Ward's awesomeness. Valid point. Props!

    You know, this might be the finest piece of performance art since the great JM J Bullock thread.
