The “we need to get Skye away from these people to work her magic” bit actually made sense, as the team itself seems concerned over Hand’s priorities. I liked how Skye picked out a jacket that looked to emulate one that May has … and how she managed to work around her bracelet.
The reveal … OK, macabre is a good term for it. I’m not really sure what the heck was going on, the procedure seemed in appropriate given the nature of Coulson’s wound. And it does beg the question, just who is Coulson that SHIELD and Fury would push so hard to save/recover/retain him. Is Coulson the proverbial “honest man” that SHIELD simply cannot do without?
What concerned me was the tag scene. It appears as if Peterson was recovered by the others, as opposed to SHIELD, thus putting him back to where he was in the beginning … is he to become the first Deathlok? From this I can only surmise that when things went south in the mid-season finale, it was the team that recovered a shot Ward and bugged out, and apparently failing to secure the scene of that debacle. Consequently, if SHIELD did later send in their clean-up squad, it was only after someone (the Clairvoyant?) had already gone through and recovered what was to be recovered.
So, did any one else catch this episode?
