Some random 'thoughts' *cough* on last night's episode of Agents of SHIELD

SPOILERS FOR THE ENTIRE SEASON OF AGENTS OF SHIELD, OBVIOUSLY, AS WELL AS PROMO PICS FOR AN UPCOMING EP…ALSO SPOILERS FOR THE WINTER SOLDIER. YOU'VE BEEN WARNED.



1. MARIA!!!

I loved her scene with May in the alley. I liked how May took out all the agents following Hill. Was not too impressed that Maria wanted to hand everyone except Coulson over to General Weirdly-Shaped Head, but I figured she'd come around ;)





My mom was CONVINCED she was bad. My (naïve) argument was that she wouldn't have helped Steve take down the helicarriers/Hydra in The Winter Soldier if she was bad. Why go to all that trouble?!??

Also, a big FUCK YOU to Ward for his "eye candy" comment. Dick.



Maria remains unpressed by your attitude, Ward.




2. MAYYYYYYYYYYY!!!

This scene cracked me up. (For some reason I thought she was digging around in Fury's grave (since she mentioned something to Maria about finding him/talking to him). But, yeah, in retrospect digging around in Coulson's grave makes more sense.)




So glad she rejoined the team. I knew she would, but still.



3. Agent Triplett remains awesome and a perfect replacement for Ward.

I wasn't impressed with Triplett's comment about May, glad to hear Coulson shut him down. But otherwise, he's awesome.



4. *I* was pulling for Skye.

(So that's like...the second time, ever?)

Still wish she would've found something on the Bus she could've fashioned into a shiv and stabbed Ward in his neck while he slept, but otherwise, few complaints :D

That scene in the diner was intense. So were all the others, but especially that one. I screamed in joy when she tipped off the authorities.







5. Okay, yeah, the CGI for the escape-in-Lola scene was bad, but I can't be bothered by it. The show doesn't have the budget of the films and I wish people would take that into account.

Poor Lola, though :(

This was cute.






6. Is Natasha going to make a cameo before the season is over?

They sure do mention her a lot. I know Chloe Bennet tweeted awhile ago about some ~super-seekret~ person being on set to film a cameo and that she was overly excited by this person around & that she freaked them out a bit by her reaction to meeting him/her…which would make me assume it was someone who hadn't been on the show before (i.e. Hill or Fury). My fangirl heart has been screaming EVANS!!!!!!!!111111111111!!! since she tweeted that (because Cap's #1 fanboy needs something good to happen to him for once), but now I wonder…



7. If they go the Ward-gets-redeption-through-the-Power-of-Twoo-Wuv, I will fucking vomit and break things.

Especially if he rejoins the team and everyone else is all ::Kanye shrug:: about it.

If I had a dime for every time I yelled at Ward to "JUST DIE ALREADY" during that ep….well, I wouldn't be posting this because I'd be out CAR SHOPPING right now.




8. Okay, Marvel, let's release a SHIELD manual for the masses, please?

Y'know, the one Skye was taking about to FUCKING WARD, the one where Chapter One is about how Red Skull=HYDRA=Nazi?? And haven't they mentioned stuff from the manual before (or am I dreaming)? I would read the shit out of that!

I mean, they did one of those "art of Agents of SHIELD books" like they do for all the films: Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Season One Declassified Slipcase (available for pre-order). (I have the Avengers one and The Winter Soldier ones, they're amazeballs. And, yes, I preordered this one, too.)




9. FitzSimmons.

Oh, lord, this is going to end badly, isn't it?

When Leo lost it and Jemma was crying/trying to calm him down…EXCUSE ME, THERE IS A TREE IN MY EYE. *bb's*

And, okay, I ship them but yet…

I like the thought of Simmons & Triplett. But I don't want Fitz to be hurt because he's too precious for this world. And I don't know if I could handle awkward romantic scenes between Fitz & Simmons…though I guess nothing could be as cringe-worthy as the SkyeWard romantic scenes in the past ::shudders::

But but but Jemma is bad, isn't she? In one of the recent episodes, she commented that she was getting better at lying…after the writers worked hard to set up that she was a horrible liar or at least appeared to be for a good chunk of the season. Please please please tell me that it's because she's becoming less naïve and more superspy-like…???

But this scene…







At first, I thought it was cute (AND THAT FITZ WAS FINALLY FINALLY FINALLY GOING TO TELL HER HOW HE FEELS OMG BB LET IT OUT), but then the more I thought about it…

The "you'll never have to find out" part sticks out. IS IT BECAUSE SHE'S GOING TO KILL HIM IN HIS SLEEP SO THAT HE'S NOT ALIVE WHEN IT COMES OUT THAT SHE'S HYDRA????

(It doesn't help that there's a rumor floating around ONTD that Iain is leaving the show. Based solely on the fact he's the only cast member not appearing at a Con this summer. But he could have another project, right??? Or be out promoting his upcoming movie with Gosling…?)
(Besides, characters who've been killed off of shows still take part in Cons, right??? They don't backsie on your invite your character bites it, do they?)


Please tell me I've lost my goddamn mind & that Jemma is still sunshine & kittens AND THEIR LIVERS…BESIDES FITZ'S LUNCH.



10. Coulson & Project T.A.H.I.T.I.

Shit, son!






11. I am RIDICULOUSLY excited for May & Coulson cosplaying FitzSimmons next week :D

(Okay, it's probably wishful thinking on my part, but LOOK AT HOW CUTE!!!)

It's a free LJ layout. It's called "Faded Turquoise", you can get it if you go into "change journal style".

Oh man, I just finished watching SHIELD. Ugh. This is too much. Basically yes to everything you said.

Oh one thing -- SIMMONS BETTER NOT BE HYDRA. Like no. That would rip my heart out. T_T Simmons is only better at lying because she's becoming a better field agent and not only sciency stuff. She's not Hydra, nope nope nope. (Or I'm in complete denial and I choose to stay this way until proven otherwise.)

Fitz better stay alive because I love him to bits and just no. You don't kill him.

I like Fitz/Simmons as a couple, mainly because Fitz loves her so damn much, and I want to shake some sense into him. Just TELL HER already. Although, I don't ship them enough to care if the show goes with Simmons/Triplet or Fitz/Simmons. Both can work at this point.

I will be devastated if Simmons is HYDRA. Or if she died. Or if Fitz died. Especially if Fitz died, he's like a grouchy little duckling in a cardigan, I love that character sfm.

(If it's any consolation, my theories are usually wrong. I've been right a few times here & there, but my percentage isn't very good. AND—this is the thing I'm trying to make my mantra—a lot of the people I see on the internet wondering about Jemma also said that Fitz would be revealed to be the mole instead of Ward and look how that worked out.)

THIS. It's like, if you can't say it, just write a message on the Hologram board or on one of those 'magic windows' like how Skye left her message for the team, something, ANYTHING idk. And I feel like everyone besides Jemma has caught on that he loves her…? I'm probably wrong, I just thought that Coulson, May & Triplett have given him knowing looks at different times.

I hope you are wrong, haha!

And yes, I'm sure a lot of people have caught on to Fitz's feelings -- which adds to the whole TELL HER need I have.

Sort of related: I love that Ward is Hydra btw. I liked him well enough, but he was like my least favourite character (he was too ordinary typical solder-like), and then this whole thing was revealed and jfsdalkjaoiw. You just gained some points, man! (I hate you now, but hating is better than being indifferent, lol.)

Glad I wasn't totally imagining that others were picking up on Fitz's feelings for Jemma. (Afterall, from the look on Coulson's face when Ward left with Garrett & Hand, I thought sure Coulson knew Ward was HYDRA. Guess not!)

(Oop and I forgot they were staying at that motel now, guess that rules out the magic pictures & holograms.)

I hate you now, but hating is better than being indifferent, lol.
Totally! I disliked him, then really liked him for a couple eps (the one where he went on the mission with Fitz and the one where he saved Jemma…and I kind of liked him with May), then he went back to boring me. But now I want terrible, painful things to happen to him :D

SLJ was in the last scene of the second episode. He comes onboard the plane to chastise Coulson for all the damage that was done to the plane. *Supposedly* there's a 'surprise' cameo coming up that hasn't been announced like Cobie & SLJ's next appearance. I only know of it from Chloe Bennet's twitter and a cast interview I saw over at TWoP before it shutdown. (Hopefully the cast isn't trolling us lol.)

I've been trolling around tumblr a bit today & apparently a lot of people there think Jemma is HYDRA & will be the one to die…? I don't know. I don't want her to be HYDRA & I don't want either of them to die, I'll be crushed.

6.As much as I'd love it be Evans I'm thinking it's going to be Natasha too.

7. You and me both,they made the decision,keep it!


9. I have a very bad feeling about them too :( That scene gave me chills but not in a good way. I'm clinging to straws that it's just a red herring.

11. omg lmao that is golden.

7. If they make it out to be that Ward was brainwashed & just needed some "cognitive recalibration", I will chuck my TV out the window. They need something big to go down (something big that is NOT the death of Fitz or Simmons lol) and Ward dying would fit the bill. Besides, Triplett has the same skill set (plus social skills! and a personality!) to replace him on the team, so Ward is obsolete IMO ;)

9. At first, I was all "awwwww" but then about ½ an hour later I changed my tune to "OH SHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIZ!!!" LOL. Thinking back on that scene, something just seems ~off. (What what what if Jemma isn't HYDRA but is spying for another organization? That could lead into setting up a Big Bad for next season, someone from another Marvel Shady Organization.) I'm hoping it's a big ol' fat red herring, too!!!

11. SO CUTE! I was bummed the previews only showed a glimpse of them dressed like that, I wanted more info. The captions that came with the promo pics didn't say much :(

I wish Cobie was a regular. She could just float between the show and the Marvel movies for awhile :)

Nat could----HAVE YOU SEEN WINTER SOLDIER? CAUSE I DON'T WANT TO SAY SPOILERY SPOILERS REGARDING NAT IF YOU HAVEN'T LOL.

LOL I like spoilers, too. It helps prepare me for the worst, y'know? ;)

Okay, there's a scene in The Winter Soldier where this older lady on the World Security Council starts beating the shit out of the bad guy, only to 'peel' away her electronically altered face & reveal herself to be Natasha. I could kind of see them having someone do something amazing on SHIELD (ie save the team/a team member from some horrible fate) and then do the same thing to reveal that it was Natasha.

I have been enjoying AoS so much lately. Well done, show.

I was pretty indifferent/bored by Skye for most of the season, but between getting her shit together once she realized Ward was Hydra, and her stalling tactics at the diner it was kind of like, "FINALLY. WAY TO BADASS, BB." I hope the show continues to make my like her.

Cobie Smulders needs to be a series regular. I was so excited to see more of Maria Hill. I was also quite pleased that they threw in some references to Pepper and Tony. I was just thinking the other week that they didn't seem to reference Tony at all, which was kind of weird.

With all of the references to Natasha lately, it does make me wonder if she will make an appearance (presumably to drop-kick Ward out of the bus, mid-flight. And then she, May, Hill, and Lady Sif will go out to Starbucks and catch up or something). Either that, or it's really heavy-handed redemption parallels between her and Ward and I'm just not here for Ward's redemption arc.

I co-sign on everything you said ;)

I was reading my mom's new TV Guide last night and one of the writers brought up the subject of Ward and the first thing out of his mouth was along the lines of "IS HE BRAINWASHED, CAN HE BE REDEEMED, IS HE A TRIPLE AGENT?...............or is he just a jackass who really is Hydra". So I'm fully expecting Ward!redemption now GROSS. I'm hoping they stay to the path they're creating for Skye, but if Ward survives/gets his gd redemption arc, I'm sure they'll go back to annoying!Skye grrrr.

And then she, May, Hill, and Lady Sif will go out to Starbucks and catch up or something.
This sooooooooooooooooooooooooo needs to happen!

LOL I wasn't expecting a gif like that to feature Barbie, y'know?!?!?

I saved it thinking I wouldn't use it until June/July/August, but I couldn't wait :D

You see if I'd have known Barbie was such a book geek I might have shown her a little more respect as a kid. :P
