The stakes get higher as May and Hunter pursue Ward and Hydra; Coulson thinks the ATCU could be keeping a big secret.

The preview implies that Andrew is dead, but I still don't believe it.  They may think him dead, but he lives.  I'm pretty sure.  :D

Not only does he live but he is indeed Lash!

This was a rather disjointed episode that didn't really come together for me.

While Daisy-Mack-Hunter (Inhumans) and Rosalind-Coulson (ATCU) plotlines managed to weave seamlessly together along with Dr. Garner's revelation, the Bobbi-May pursuit of Werner von Strucker just felt tacked on, along with the reintroduction of Power Booth's character.  Obviously, they're trying to flesh out the new HYDRA especially with Ward calling the shots in the field, but this isn't fitting organically into the ATCU-Inhuman-Monolith storyline currently dominating Season 3.

I liked that Fitz is genuinely working on trying to rescue Will, even as he is researching the guy whom Simmons was castaway with.  I also liked Hunter's version of a heart to heart.  I get the distinct impression that Hunter genuinely likes Fitz and is pulling for him to succeed with Simmons.

Finally, I have to confess having a smile on my face at Daisy and Mack's reaction to Hunter's straightforward solution to their conundrum to figure out if Rosalind's henchman was Lash.

Oh, and May's whole espousal of "violence is the first resort" is in seeming contradiction with her being upset with Hunter because he took the shot.  I'm thinking that maybe, just maybe, it wasn't so much that he took the shot when lives were at risk ... it was that he took the shot AND MISSED when lives were at risk that resulted in him being benched.

Well, you're always more easily forgiven if you succeed.

So, wow, yeah, Andrew is Lash. And apparently not a split personality either.  I do wonder how he found some clothes and got dressed before SHIELD extracted him, though.  :lol:

I'm not caring about the Ward storyline either. I've been wishing him gone for a long time.  I was surprised, though, that they killed off Strucker Junior so quickly.  I thought he'd be around a while.

I love how Fitz is handling the situation with Gemma. He's by far the most mature character on the show.  I'm still not sure if Gemma wants to rescue Daniels because he's a guy who needs rescuing or if she is still enamored of him-- if she is, I think she'll discover that a relationship born in a pressure cooker doesn't last long in the open air.

And what's going on with Rosalind?  Are we really getting a look at what makes her tick, or is she playing Coulson by making him think that he caught her playing him?

It was true!   :eek2:

Last week when we had two convincing theories, I figured that one of them had to be a red herring!  (Or both, but that didn't happen. ;) )   So when the team started investigating one of the theories (which was the first one I had come up with), it became clear that one was the red herring.  So of course the other one was true!  :eek:

Also, Andrew asked about Lincoln way too many times.  :mad:


Coulson and Rosalind.   :headshake:  Rosalind is so blinded about what she is doing, does she even realize how wrong she is?   I get that she wants to save (cure) people, cause she lost her husband.  But it's SO not the same thing.  With a terminal illness, of course people want to be cured, the only alternative is death.  But with a transformation, it is not neccessarily bad!  That should be up to each individual person, she's taking away their CHOICE.  Sure, make a cure!  And offer it to people if they *want to choose it*!


I really liked May coaching Bobbi through her return to field work.  I liked Bobbi's whole journey in this episode actually.  :)


I had to laugh at Hunter making a nuisance of himself everywhere.  :lol:  And yeah, the only thing worse than taking a shot when you shouldn't, is taking that shot and missing, LOL!  ;) (And oddly enough, the same message came out of Heroes Reborn this week. :lol: )

Also Fitz's line about Hunter's *oddly specific* example, LOL!


And BTW.  I noticed that Lincoln is a regular in the credits now.  That's interesting.  :think:

Actually, despite her Gestapo tactics, Rosalind makes a good argument.  How many times in Star Trek were people put in stasis to save them?

Lincoln has been in main credits since the beginning of the season.

Rosalind's argument has great points.  Very hard to say no ro a line of reasoning like that.  Tactics can be more kid glove, but I wonder if this will be what Coulson will adopt as a strategy for Inhumans they can't help or talk down right away.

Indeed. He's already keeping that one guy in isolation because his powers killed a few people. That's not so different.
