Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D "The only light in the darkness" OAD 4/22/2014

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?

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.

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.

You heard correctly that Triplett is the grandson of a Howling Commando, but are only assuming that it's Gabe Jones... could be any one of them really.

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.)

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

You might want to put that is spoiler tags. Against the rules to discuss previews.

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.).
