To all of my fellow Agents of SHIELD fans, I think group therapy would benefit us all
If Marvel is going to make episodes like that one it needs to offer complimentary therapy sessions
You cannot tell me that there will not be a second season because my emotional stability (or instability) depends on this show
Ok but who was May married to?
AND ONE ABOUT COULSON AND AUDREY
Grant didn’t just say “Skye” or that he was there because of Skye (that could mean anything) he specifically said that he wanted to spend time with her…. and yes, I will use anything I can to keep the water out of this ship.
But wait, there’s more !
They said that the team is going to find out…
I think if anything, this episode actually shows us that he really is struggling with grey areas. There was no reason for him to tell Skye more about his older brother, but he did. And yes, it could be because he wanted to earn her trust, but he finishes it by telling her that he’s not a good man. Like he’s warning her.
And then, when she finds out the truth, instead of running from the beast, she climbs into it’s stomach and waits for her chance to kick her way out, from the inside. She smiles at him and he smiles back, and what hurts us here is that we, as viewers, know that his feelings for her are genuine. He thinks, for a brief moment, that he’s going to win this. He smiles at her like she’s his whole universe, and she thinks he killed Melinda May.
So here’s what I need. I need them to show that abuse is a cycle, and that Ward is trapped and has never known anything else. I need Ward to figure out what he wants. Who he is, past the abuse, past the personalities. I need him to feel. Really, truly feel. And I don’t think there’s any true redemption for him. Lawful good, at this point, is pretty much out of the question. But I think there’s hope for some good in him, or at least a sense of balance.
Fitz is seeing what obsessive love looks like and he’s terrified
and he’s also learning that love is putting the needs of others before your own
