Ward's revenge campaign cripples the team; Coulson makes it clear he will stop at nothing to settle the score.

Don't forget to tune in, True Believers, as things start coming to a head, tonight on ABC, 9pm Eastern/8pm Central.

The episode didn't disappoint, albeit the elimination of Rosalind and her chief henchman pretty much obliterated any possibility that the ATCU is anything but a front for HYDRA.

Also, I am remembering back to episode 2 of this season, "Purpose In The Machine" and Professor Elliot Randolph's request that they destroy the portal.  Could it be that our Asgardian was fully aware of the being that was trapped on that planet?  Obviously, he hadn't considered that the pieces missing from the monolith could, themselves, be used to create a portal ... and personally, I rather liked that development.  Now I'm trying to remember if the Monolith we saw in the flashback actually had the holes in it or not.  

Ward is still proving to be something of a loose canon, and while I don't doubt that Malick hopes he succeeds on his mission, I cannot help but think that Malick believes that, at the least, in the event of failure he's rid himself of Ward.  However, Malick's judgment hasn't proven infallible ... maybe it is his focus on the endgame that is distracting him from the mid-game with SHIELD.  OTOH, Coulson's snatching and threatening Ward's only surviving brother, was ... certainly effective in locating Ward.  And good on Ward for recognizing that he had just been played.  Also, yeah, they pretty much nailed just how well Ward had scouted that team, and him knowing just how to coerce Fitz into helping HYDRA.

Also, SHIELD's "Secret Warriors" have been declared operational, so ... there's that.  I think Mack is suddenly recognizing why certain decisions are made when events overtake the process, and resources are scarce with which to respond.

Finally, Fitz is on that other world to rescue Will, pity he is accompanied by Ward and the HYDRA folk who wish to bring back Death (could this be whom Thanos is pining after?).  At least Coulson is there to back him up ... that is, if he isn't suffering from a concussion from smacking his head on that rock.

I think it was a big mistake, from a storytelling point of view, to kill Rosalind. I was hoping she'd eventually be promoted to headliner. There were so many possibilities. :no:

Still, this was a hell of an episode.  It was great to see Mack in charge and it's nice to know he comes after May in the pecking order-- I've been thinking that he hasn't had enough to do this year-- I don't think he's had one conversation with his pal Fitz-- and it was a great moment when he repeated to the team exactly what Coulson said to him. Poor Coulson. I don't think we really needed to see him driven to extremes, but Clark Gregg really got to show his stuff.  And now Fitz and a bunch of HYDRA goons are on Planet Hell-- and so is Coulson. I'm not quite sure how that happened, since the portal seemed to close before he got through the conveniently open roof.  I wonder if Hunter made it, too.

I just really, really hope we are finally going to see the end of Ward.

Coulson basically free-fell through the portal just before it closed, which means he landed with a "whump" on that other world.  Hunter was left behind on the quin-jet with Bobbi, as they dealt with the HYDRA-flak even as Mack's team of Secret Warriors are speeding across the Atlantic to join the battle.

But, yeah, hitting the ground whilst free-falling from 100+ feet, I'm thinking that would  do more than simply knock the wind out a guy.  But, Marvel's has always played fast and loose with physics.

I must have blinked when he went through.  To me it looked like the portal goop dried up before he even went through the conveniently open roof.

Oops!  I wrote down some comments last week, but forgot to post them!  :look:


Coulson's dive ... Good aim!!! :o

Tyler Ritter as Thomas Ward, I was not expecting that!  (He was perfect though! ) :cool:

Also, the team psychologically analyzing Ward from memory was really interesting.
