Looking forward to Lady Sif returning. I hope they don't have Skye (and Fitz) trying to keep her transformation a secret for too long. Also, I hope we see more flashbacks with Skye's mom.

I enjoyed Agent Carter, but it's really good to have this show back.

I thought that they'd drag out that subplot about Fitz hiding what Skye was, I'm pleased that they let it out of the bag in this episode. Like Sif better in full armor and gear . Always kind of a sucker for swords and sorcery and high fantasy. Does Palicki have any martial arts training, it looks like the sticks are Eskrima batons. She's quite tall. Agent Tight T-Shirt and Mac aren't HYDRA, so what the hell are they? What are they hiding? It's nice to know that Lance isn't stupid and has figured out that something is up. If Mac didn't kill, then he's going to have some major explaining to do when he wakes up, which he's sure to do shortly, and he'll have to explain it to Mockingbird too.

I liked how they played both sides of the argument about Skye, they were actually two legitimate viewpoints, it was a nice bit of moral ambiguity. So is Odin still Loki? Where is the real Odin, then? Is Loki in bed with the Kree? If he sent Sif, he must be scheming something. Maybe Loki and Ronin will team up as Thanos' lieutenants for the Infinity War?

There's that mythical L-shaped sheet that covers women up to their shoulders and men up to their waist again .

So we got Kree, teragenesis, and inhumans. Damn, they really are moving shit along. So, are we ever going to see ward again?

Yeah, they're really putting in a lot of stuff. Plus, Hyde's
Spoiler:
Masters of Evil
next week.

So Not Hydra, they still want to be friends and aren't mind controlled or sleeper agents, but they still have to do something that is going to be dangerous to the rest of the team? I wonder if May's mother (and whatever organization she's a part of) is involved.

They made it a point to show that Lance was still breathing, right?

The whole "you were built to be a weapon" thing seemed like a terrible argument, and I'm glad that the Agents didn't even think twice about supporting Skye in that battle, especially considering what happened with Deathlok in season 1. Although if Sif was just going to bring her back to Asgard to train, instead of killing her, that would have probably been a much better option for Skye. Since there's no school for gifted mutants/heroes in training in this continuity.

I forget who said it last thread, but it really is a terrible power for a good guy.

Did anybody else get a 'Civil War' type of vibe from Mack and Bobbi? They seem very pro registration to me and I wouldn't be surprised if whoever they are working for has ties to Captain America 3.

My guess, it's Talbot/Army, SWORD, Nick Fury... or as a wildcard, Tony Stark.

I was the one that said it was a terrible power for a hero. I suspect the real reason they went with that skill set is because the VFX for an earthquake happening cost practically nothing.

Watching this episode was the first time I ever thought Jaimie Alexander would have made a great Wonder Woman. She was nailing the power walk this episode.

Really enjoyed seeing a Kree guy straight up in the show, even if he was masked as a human. And I liked the involvement of Asgard and Sif, as it makes sense to me that all these things wouldn't be happening without other worlds noticing or getting involved in some form. The show has been firing on all cylinders for Season 2.

Makes me laugh that another poster felt everything was a mcguffin and viewers were being taken in by the pace of the show.

Several times throughout the show, I kept thinking Vin-Tak (Eddie McClintock) was being played by Craig Sheffer.

Yes, she should have been WW. Wonder if Disney paid her not to be?

I just assumed that they stopped considering her after the pilot didn't get picked up. She's certainly showing that she has action chops with the many fight scenes on this show, he character is basically muscle. It's kind of cool for a female character to be the fighter for a change.

This was the lowest rated episode of the entire series.

Go look it up, yes. The weather is starting to get better on the East Coast for the first time all winter and the last thing people want to do is stay in front of the television. I also see it as waning interest in this series.

Marvel has nothing to promote so why go. I for one am glad, actually.
The Marvel booth always clogs up the middle of CC so it will be nice to be able to actually walk in that area for once.
I've been hoping they would change booth locations for years. Always the biggest cluster-fuck in the place.

I wonder why they cancelled CC, I guess they're riding so high right now that they don't really need to promote anything there and spend the money setting up.

I haven't watched anything on television live in years. I just use the DVR to blow through the commercials.

there's also nothing really to show at comic con. we've already seen the avengers stuff and ant-man. all the stuff for next year is barely in preproduction or in early shooting. not much they can show off at this point.

This. They did it a couple of years ago, too.
