    Wait I thought they were brother and sister...like twins or something. Are they not?

    You could have a long time to wait, They have got separate bunks and even when they were reunited after Simmons jumped out of the plane and they were sitting on Fitz's bunk Fitz kept his arms around a pillow - and then Simmons left leaving Fitz to alone on his bunk with his arms around his pillow.

    This is what I thought, too.

    No, one is English the other Scottish :)

    The English one shot her supervisor in the chest.

    Yeah, he's crushing on her and she's (mostly) oblivious.

    I like the show, I really do, but I can't help but get snapped out of the fantasy when they have things like two agents are being suroundedby a mob of bad guys with guns. *cut to shot of a c17 HOVERING above them*. Then in stead of running or shooting at it, the bad guys stand there dumbfounded and wait for the plane to stop, rotate around, and then turn on it's jets SUPERPOWER to blow them all away.

    So flying cars and stun guns are ok but a hovering C17 is too much? ;)

    Based on the last episode, the team did exactly what "The Hub" wanted them to.

    Yeah, I can see that but I could also see the soldiers all getting just a little dumbfounded by a huge jet hovering over them. Might just keep them all stunned for a 10-20 seconds possibly.

    But I would rather see the jet come in at slightly less then Mach 2 and scream over their heads at about 10 feet. The SHIELD agents would, of course, be "safe" since they were not directly under the plane.

    Or the plane could have come done right on top of the soldiers and just sprayed them every which way...

    I don't think it's the idea of the plane hovering that DTF was complaining about. It was the fact that the soldiers all stood around and didn't take any evasive action or trying to secure the prisoners while the plane was maneuvering into that position.

    That's Fight scenes 101 (3 guys fight one and 2 wait till the other is knocked down.)

    Marksmanship isn't the only skill they teach at the Imperial Stormtrooper School of Marksmanship!

    It also went from having no extraction plan to we'll just fly the plane there and pick them up. If it was that easy, why not have that be the plan in the first place?

    I think they're not completely decided on this relationship yet. It seemed to me an episode or two ago, he was crushing on Skye and she (Simmons) was looking jealous.

    I think he's also given Skye a few salacious glances. He may just be a male.

    Because it was all a test of Colson's team. He was manipulated. Not told there was no extraction. Pretty much letting the team crack the fact and go save their guys. Much like the Empire let the Millennium Falcon get away in A New Hope.

    Well now knowing that Fitz and Simmons are not related and knowing that all shows on TV have to have sexual tension I think the natural dynamics are:

    Skye and Ward
    Fitz and Simmons
    Coulson and May

    Sky is River, but less talented and mystical.
    Ward is Jayne, but WAY less funny.
    Melinda May is Zoë.
    Coulson is Mal.
    Fitz is sort-of Simon.
    Simmons is Hermione Granger.

    I seem to recall reading (somewhere here) that they had written it pretty by-the-book until they got a full season pickup, after which we should see a signficant amount of character development. We're just starting to see that, and some longer story arcs. I understand why they wouldn't want to risk it right out of the gate, but I do think that meant they lost some ground with the viewers.

    That said, we got everyone out to see Thor: The Dark World already because the previews noted that this week's episode crossed over with the movie and we wanted to be able to enjoy it spoiler-free. So they've figured out an easy way to make money off our fandom less than half-a-season in.

    You could add "but way less funny, cool, awesome, developed" on every one of those. I hope we do see some real character development.
