Agent Carter Talks Agents of SHIELD finale “SOS”

Agent Carter mugshotAgent Carter here with my final report before vacation. The mess of SHIELD continues. Powered people, alien artifacts, rogue agents. I hate to see my SSR Agency dissembling, let’s watch what happens…

Jaiying continues with her SHIELD war plan. It’s disheartening to watch as she stumbles wounded into a courtyard, in Afterlife, shouting about how Gonzales attacked her. Things begin to disintegrate. May gets in touch with Coulson. They discover Bobbi is missing. Simmons rushes in with the Jaiying report. Coulson discourages any overt attacks until they get all the information. I must say, I admire Coulson for taking the time to get proper information. No sense running into a situation and making things worse. Jaiying asks Skye why they trusted SHIELD. Rather pointedly. I don’t quite understand her, but she is villainous, so I may never.

Gordon and cohort hijack a QuinJet, by trouncing in, disabling the guards and taking off. They proceed to head over to Afterlife and fire upon one of their own buildings.

May defends herself against Skye like a one handed Jedi, until Skye uses her powers.

May defends herself against Skye like a one handed Jedi, until Skye uses her powers.

May is trying to get to the truth and wants to see Gonzales. Skye stops her and tells her to leave. Skye stands her ground to defend her new friends and Skye and May fight. May holds her own, often dealing with Skye one handed. Defeated, Skye uses her new powers to knock May out.

Back on the ship, reports of Gonzales’s death come in. Mack, who was just planning to leave Shield, realizes he’s still invested, so heads up to the control room to see what’s what. He walks in on Coulson and Weaver discussing possibilities of action. Weaver is quite bent to strike hard and immediately. Coulson wants to hold back still. Surprisingly, Mack agrees with Coulson. Simmons is still trying to comprehend things. I do find scientists often have a hard time not believing evidence they don’t see!

Back in Jaiying’s quarters, Lincoln is quite mad. Jaiying keeps advocating for harsh action. Skye goes to Raina for guidance. Raina talks of destiny. And how their destinies are entwined. And she tells Skye she will lead the InHumans and Jaiying is currently misleading them. She tells Skye that they will never talk again though Raina will be a light in the dark to guide Skye. Honestly with all this cryptic discussion, I barely know if Raina should be believed!

Gordon comes back to Jaiying with a hostage and says the plan worked. Lincoln will fight with them. Skye likely will. Everyone else is safe. Then Jaiying proceeds to literally suck the life out of the hostage so she can heal from the gunshot wound. Ah, so she’s something of an energy vampire. She’s kept that little bit a secret.

Cal is quite mad. If I were a doctor, I'd enjoy watching.

Cal is quite mad. If I were a doctor, I’d enjoy watching.

Cal is very happy. He is in fact singing. This man seems to have similar mental problems to Dottie. Simmons takes his vials to see what he took before his capture. May comes back and reports to Coulson that Skye chose the other side.

Hunter and Fitz figure out Bobbi was with Agent 33. And we see Bobbi with Kara and Ward. The point of Bobbi’s capture seems to be for Kara to get revenge on Bobbi for letting her be brainwashed.

Skye stops in to see Jaiying. Skye whines about it being a bad day. Jaiying advocates for taking the war to SHIELD. And Skye, even on this, her ‘worst day’, hesitates.

SHIELD watches the surveillance video. They realize that Jaiying set it all up. They still don’t know Gonzales is dead, though they suspect. Fitz comes in and reveals their Bobbi info. Hunter and May decide to go to after Bobbi.

Kara has learned Ward's techniques. Hang on Bobbi!

Kara has learned Ward’s techniques. Hang on Bobbi!

We watch Bobbi be tortured. Ward is exceedingly creative at this and seems to have access to drugs and implements. Never have I seen someone more suited to Hydra, even down to the addled reasoning and blame. It seems they simply want Bobbi to acknowledge and apologize for Bobbi giving up a SHIELD safehouse when she was undercover at Hydra. Kara was the safe house when Hydra attacked and wound up getting caught, then tortured and brainwashed. Understandably, she’s upset about what Bobbi did. But Bobbi is not, or at least not while she’s busy being tortured. She made a tough call for the greater good and she’d do it all again.

The SHIELD council agrees to 3 hours of intel gathering. Coulson wants to chat with Cal and the ship needs to be battle ready. Mack gets put in charge of security detail. Coulson has Cal in the deep freeze and their chat starts off very pointless.

Bobbi tries to get Kara to turn against Ward, but this doesn’t go well either. Kara seems a perfect match to his evil insanity. The two of them make a decidedly deadly couple.

Ah Raina, your light, now that it shines for good, will be missed.

Ah Raina, your light, now that it shines for good, will be missed.

Jaiying invites Raina to a chat. Raina is quite honest about what she’s seen. She says she’ll be a light in the darkness and reveal the truth. Jaiying seems amused before stabbing her. She turns to see Skye watching. Skye confronts her mother who rails on about the need to destroy SHIELD. Skye argues with her and gets conked on the head for her trouble. Jaiying says to lock her up.

Cal finally reveals that he’s there to kill as many SHIELD agents as possible. Coulson rethinks his approach. Maybe he can talk to Cal and convince him to stand down?

May and Hunter find Bobbi’s plane. And see that there’s been a struggle.

Bobbi’s not doing so great. Ward rambles on about Coulson as a talent scout. He tries to talk her into confessing. She escapes instead and fights Ward. Kara wakes up and the two subdue her. Ward hands her the gun and Kara doesn’t shoot her. Apparently Bobbi doesn’t fear death and Kara is too sweet. Or Kara wants to feed on Bobbi’s fear.

On the ship, Gordon is bringing other Inhumans aboard. And Cal isn’t doing good either. He has a heart attack in the middle of his chat with Coulson. The chemical mixture he created to give himself super strength is unstable. He was never able to get the mixture quite right. Simmons revives him with an injection, so he doesn’t die. Whatever was in the injection was the right ingredient to make the chemical mixture stable, so Cal turns into a sort of hulked out version of himself. Coulson Ices him but that hardly works, Cal complians of numb legs, but can still walk! Meanwhile, Mack sees the InHumans aboard the ship (with an unconscious Skye).

Ward and Kara set Bobbi up in a room with a Bobbi trap, that will shoot anyone who walks in the door. Ward figures that Hunter will come to rescue her and him accidentally killing her would be a nice twist when opening the door.

The ship is under attack now, with its crew either dead or captured by Inhumans. Weaver calls Coulson for help.

Coulson doesn't like Cal when he's mad.

Coulson doesn’t like Cal when he’s mad.

Back at SHIELD base, Coulson is dealing with the enraged Cal. Nothing seems to stop his rampage. Coulson finally traps him by pinning him to a wall with an SUV. Ever the resourceful man!

The InHumans take the control room of the ship. They do so rather easily. Despite all the training agents receive, they’re little match for super-powered people. Then, Jaiying arrives with Terrigen crystals, the same ones used to transform people into InHumans, while killing regular humans. The SHIELD council admirably stand to their code in the face of these.

Cal doesn’t take the talk well, he’s been so angry for so long. But Coulson convinces him Jaiying has been manipulating them. Gradually Cal’s anger subsides at this truth. He explains Jaiying was never the same after Whitehall’s destruction of her. Cal wanted to fix her, but all he did was feed her people to heal from. Coulson finally makes him see Skye is in danger. Cal agrees to help. Despite his crimes, the man truly does care about his daughter.

Mack breaks Skye out of the brig and tells her to hack the ship. They send out a hardwired beacon to attract Coulson’s help. The InHumans discover the signal, realize they can’t stop it and instead come up with a plan to use it. Jaiying wants them to expand the beacon to get all of SHIELD’s attention, to hopefully deal with the agency once and for all.

Cal is calming down. And Coulson sees what’s been happening while they were busy. They try to recall May and Hunter and team but, they are already on the ground.  Ward and Kara watch as May’s team come in. A couple of their agents are hit. Hunter snaps the trap and Bobbi adjusts her body to take the bullet, but not in her head, as the trap was designed, but in her chest. Smart and illuminating move. She’ll make the tough calls for the greater good, which aren’t always in black and white. Meanwhile, May tricks Kara into assuming her face and leads her into a part of the building where Ward is. It’s a well done play that works beautifully. Ward winds up shooting the disguised Kara, who dies in his arms as he struggles to save her.

Lincoln and Gordon chat. Lincoln seems to be having doubts. Gordon tries to talk him back to the InHuman side, though Lincoln clearly understands Jaiying is murdering folks. Ah some sense on both sides finally!

Mack and Skye get to the beacon to expand it. They hope this will be enough to stall.

May and Hunter get back with Bobbi; she’s not doing well. Coulson gets his ducks in a row. Fitz has made a ‘Gordon power’ dampening tool. It should prevent him from teleporting out of a room, if they can convince him to come in it.

Skye goes into the mainframe room and is found by Lincoln. Lincoln attacks Skye and Skye starts talking some sense to him and finds out the crystals are in the vent room. Then Mack walks in and knocks him out. Skye is a bit irate. But what’s an agent to do?

May calls Andrew and he tells her to do good. She is concerned that things are worse then ever. Simmons walks in on Fitz getting ready and she wants to talk about love. Now?? Love is most inconvenient, I must say, but it is improper to broach this before a rescue operation. Fitz agrees with me about the timing and then says theres nothing to talk about. Simmons stops him and says maybe there is. Then he wants to talk, but is interrupted by Coulson saying it’s time to go. Honestly, if your’e going to do these sort of things at inappropriate times, just kiss and get it over with.

There doesn't seem to be a perfect plan to be found! Good agents make do with what they have then.

There doesn’t seem to be a perfect plan to be found! Good agents make do with what they have then.

On the QuinJet, Coulson intercepts a message from Skye saying it’s a trap. May voices her dislike of the Cal plan. Coulson tells the rest of the teams to go home, they will try to solve the InHuman problem with minimal human contact.

Mack is hanging around in the fan room, sitting atop the case of blue crystals, holding an axe. Gordon teleports in. Mack introduces himself as the Man who will kill Gordon.

Jaiying pulls back from the control room with a second case of blue crystals. She leaves Skye with the red-haired ninja InHuman, who duplicates herself incessantly.

Cal confronts Jaiying who has Gordon whisk him away into a locked room, so she can carry on with her mad scheme. He bangs on the door. I don’t imagine it will hold him long.

Coulson and Fitz arrive on the ship, and find Mack, who’s managed to keep Gordon away from the crystals, but hasn’t been able to capture or hurt the teleporter. Fitz sets up his devices. The next time he teleports in, he can’t teleport out of room. Coulson, Mack and Fitz attack, as Gordon teleports around the room, fighting all three.

Lincoln comes in and helps Skye and May joins them. They let Skye go after Jaiying. Skye talks to Jaiying, but it’s not good, she’s set on war with the humans. In a final straw of how mad she is, Jaiying grabs Skye and begins sucking the life out of her. Skye struggles with her, but sticks to the mission and topples the jet with the crystals into the ocean.

Jaiying is not winning any mother of the year awards.

Jaiying is not winning any mother of the year awards.

In the control room Lincoln and May are not winning. Lincoln says they need to take out the main ninja. Lincoln comments that they aren’t bad, just mislead and knocks her out before May shoots. Ah initiative! I hope it helps, young Lincoln!

Jaiying and Skye are fighting again when Cal arrives and intervenes. He tells Skye he can kill her so Skye doesn’t have to live with that.

OOPS!

OOPS!

OH DEAR.

OH DEAR.

Gordon reappears, on a pole and dies; he drops a crystal as he goes down. Coulson dives for the crystal, because if it shatters, they’ll all be exposed to the Terrigen Mist and die (or be transformed). He catches it, but then holding the crystal begins to turn his hand to stone and it starts to spread up his body. Mack makes a wise but painful decision and cuts off Coulson’s hand with the crystal in it! Good lord that was smart, but obviously incredibly painful.

The battle is over and SHIELD has won. But not without some cost. Coulson and Andrew (May’s pyschologist ex-husband) are having a meeting. Coulson’s arm is in a sling as they discuss the teams psyche evaluations. May has decided to take a vacation (she packs lingerie and a gun), Mack has decided to stay and is in charge of alien artifacts, though he still dreads the stuff. Skye and Cal say goodbye as he’s lead away. He asks that Skye visit from time to time, and she says yes. It’s a bittersweet goodbye. Cal did all the wrong things for the right reasons, the safety of his daughter. But still, so many wrong things. Still, Skye says she’ll visit.

Andrew helps Coulson debrief events.

Ward's new Hydra?

Ward’s new Hydra?

Ward is drinking at a bar and plotting. He’s looking for a team of Hydra agents. Or leaders. Or peons. He might even run a new branch of Hydra himself, as he searches for some kind of ‘closure’.

Skye goes to a vet’s office with Coulson and it’s being run by Cal, who is now Dr. Winslow. He has no idea who Skye is, as his mind has been wiped and he’s been given a new identity. So Skye has a father who doesn’t remember her at all. But at least now he can the kind and caring doctor he was before. Hopefully he’s a cat person.

Coulson runs the Powered Team idea past Skye. She’s in, but thinks it has to be done in secret. The world doesn’t like enhanced people, they fear and hate them, so best to anonymous with the new team. Coulson says that was always the plan.

Oh No! Simmons!

Oh No! Simmons!

We are what we eat.

We are what we eat.

Back at the lab, Fitz finally and nervously asks Simmons on a date. After realizing his intentions (scientists can be so focused), she agrees and smiles. He leaves and Simmons notices the Big Rock’s door is open. She goes near it and the rock sort of eats her. Well then. I suppose there won’t be a date just yet.

Dossier Notes:

I say, a lot of people seem to be losing hands and arms about SHIELD. Hmm.

So, it seems, Coulson is not InHuman despite alien blood transfusion.

Vacations are best taken after furious battles defeating a goodly number of enemies.

No matter who your boss, it is good to think for yourself. Don’t blindly follow and be mislead!

Don’t leave artifacts around, I expect that wayward box of Terrigan crystals will lead to no good.

Oberyn Martell recaps Game of Thrones season 5, episode 5-“Kill the Boy”

Oberyn Martell here. Watching from my island paradise while enjoying life. I like to check in with those Seven Kingdomers. Especially the beautiful ones. Let me pour a glass of wine and we’ll have a look…

Missandei watches over the injured and beautiful Grey Worm. Are they delicious looking together?

Missandei watches over the injured and beautiful Grey Worm. Are they delicious looking together?

Ah Greyworm survived the brutal attack. Missandei sits by his bed, looking over him with a worried face. She’s beautiful as ever, as is he and hopefully too gorgeous to die from his wounds. Unlike poor Ser Barristan. He may have been a legendary fighter, but age dwindles us all. It’s not surprising that he fell, nor that he took so many with him.

Daily Art 130-New theme, look at the birdy!

Brandon: Time for a new theme, but there’s back story, so hang on for the ride!

From:

It started on Thursday when Brandon found this image on Pinterest and sent it to Sheala. 

tumblr_inline_mwqvy5SnnG1qdm9r3

(From: http://lackadaisycats.tumblr.com/post/67909264429/notes-on-character-design)

Brandon: Another theme idea!

Sheala: Oooooooooooooooo. Pick the shapes first then add? Assign a daily shape?

Friday:

Brandon: Yes, let’s work on the same shape at same time. You come up with six, I do same, we mix and match. Say share shapes by Sat afternoon. 

Sheala: Not complex but not simple shapes?

Brandon: Mix and match!!!!!!

Sheala: Hmm. I propose draw eight. You pick from mine I pick from yours. There’s extras to avoid overlap!

Brandon: Let me present this to the council of elder turtles. I’ll inform you of their eventual descion

Later that day…

Brandon: The Council of Elder Turtles Who Appreciate Art and Other Fun Things agree to this modification. 

Sheala: Thanks Council! The Council of Paperwork will draw up contracts!

Brandon: I believe they’re having tea and Twinkies at the moment!

Fast forward through conversation about Age of Ultron, Funko Pop figures, the business of making movies, Marvel Studios vs Fox Studios, and various food related definitions.

Brandon sketches-IMG_8494

Brandon: Pick from shapes! I drew more than eight, ’cause I’m a rebel at heart!

Sheala:

IMG_8008 IMG_8535

Sheala: I numbered mine. Lemme know if you want more. 

Brandon: I would like 2 1/2 more shapes please and could I sub out the fries for a teleportation ring? And a blue milkshake, chocolate flavored. Made by mice. NO JERBOAS! They always put weird stuff in milkshakes. Like treble. Who wants a ringing milkshake?! Not this monkey!

Sheala:

IMG_4679

 

Brandon: HAHAHAHAH. Here’s mine with numbers:

IMG_8495

Sheala: Ahaha! You separated the ones I thought were pairs.

Hang on…

Brandon: Yes, they weren’t getting along.

Sheala: 7, 16, 22, 4, 25, 28. You can count the milkshake outline as a shape!

Brandon: I chose….3, 1, 6, 5, 8 & 9!!!!!

Sheala: Cool!

Brandon: Pool.

Sheala: Heh. I thought you’d go .5!

Brandon: That’s why I didn’t! Keep’em guessing for no good reason! School of Baelish!

Now, how to mix’em up? Alternate? Duel? Trial by combat? Let Boo pick?

Sheala: Hahahaha. School of Baelish sounds very Fury. 

3,7,1,16,6,22,5,4,8,25,9,28?? Alternate. Unless we can figure out how trial by combat works.

Lucky there are no duplicate numbers!

Trial by combat could require a trip to DQ. With dice!

A roll off for each pair!

Brandon: Oh. I had poisioned your tea, figuring that’s how trial by combat work. School of Oberyn!

Sheala: We could let Lisa draw from a hat!

Brandon: I thought it would happen at DQ. 

Sheala: Let’s go right now! Or before 4!

Brandon: Right now requires pants. 

Sheala: Later will also require pants. But if the mice aren’t done making them I understand.

Brandon: Oh, pants are easy!

So, after a side trip to replace suddenly dead car battery, Brandon retrieved Blizzards from Dairy Queen (Salted Caramel for Lisa, Banana Split for Sheala, Strawberry Shortcake for Brandon and Salted Caramel for Daniel, the dude who replaced the car battery so Brandon wouldn’t have to get his hands dirty), a Lisa Lotto was held and the here’s the final list of shapes:

Arty-Daily-theme-May10-2015-

And that’s how we came up with the new theme, Prefab Shapes. Now on with the show:  

  Brandon: Mongo was always fascinated by waves of the ocean.

  Sheala: Jordan felt lucky to have found out this picnic carpet would fly. 

Agent Carter reviews Agents of SHIELD episode, “Scars”

Agent Carter here. My word things are a mess. At least we’ve had some Avengers help cleaning it up. Of course some may argue it was a mess of their own making but I would never discount Hydra, splintered factions of SHIELD (aka my SSR) and alien interference.

agents-of-shield-scars-patton-oswalt-600x400

We see a flashback to a year ago! The ever marvelous Agents Koenigs are prepping for Coulson’s arrival to the secret base. They discuss Theta Protocol, which is finally revealed to us. It seems there was a helicarrier in deep storage that avoided the Hydra disruption, lo those many months ago. Oh I do love a good surprise!

Back to the present, Gonzales and Coulson are watching news of Sokovia. Coulson says he’s been too busy working alone and proposes himself as director, since Fury already made him such.  He also suggests a new guiding counsel is now the board that was running Gonzales’ SHIELD. Ah, finally we have a bit of harmony. It may not last long, as Gonzales says there’s one more problem to solve and it can’t be done with a magically appearing helicarrier.

shield-lucas-clip

Lincoln is still asleep in the Shield infirmary. Skye waits for him to wake so she may take him home. Simmons does a final check out of Kara and is fretful that Skye won’t reveal anymore details about her journeys and where Lincoln’s home is. Eventually Lincoln wakes. He is distressed at being in a SHIELD facility. He worries now that the InHumans will be forced from hiding.

In Afterlife, Raina tells a man his son will go through the mist and be beautiful. She seems quite happy to be acting like a church elder. She tells Gordon that her visions are better, though hard to know if they are dreams. She explains a dream of a giant stone. From the description, Gordon recognizes it as a Kree carved stone meant to destroy InHumans. Jaiying listens to Raina’s story and may be trusting Raina. She tells Gordon and Raina to find the stone. I have some misgivings of this! After all, Raina hasn’t been on the side of good.

Gordon and Raina teleport to  Gonzales aircraft carrier. It’s where Coulson and Gonzales teams are currently. Oh dear, that’s where the stone is?

Jaiying and Cal discuss Raina. Cal says Raina always wants something. She is smart and manipulative and was so even as a child. Why am I not surprised?

Hunter sees Raina and Gordon aboard and pulls the alarm. Raina and Gordon find the stone. It’s very liquidy. It forms and un-forms in their presence, as if it was alive. Like the pool a certain Kree warrior bathed in.

The command discusses the finding of the stone. They doesn’t know what to make of things. But they do seem to be cohesive. Except Hunter, who as always, is sarcastic.

Skye and May and Coulson have a heart to heart. There’s discussions of who’s a threat and who’s not. Skye explains the InHumans helped her learn to control her powers. There’s also mentions of the fact that they infiltrated the ship and May’s action is Bahrain. Skye reveals that the child was Inhuman, which no one previously knew. SHIELD command wants to go after them. You see,  they’ve rebuilt the Hydra device used to track Gordon and found Afterlife. Coulson would like a sit down meet instead.

The InHumans discuss the stone, they want to stick together. Cal is put out by Raina and suggests she’s out to create chaos. Jaiying needs everyone to stand together!

Skye and Coulson discuss Skye’s standing and she reveals that Jaiying is her mom. Coulson wants to Index everyone. Skye suggests she and Lincoln go first and explain to Jaiying about SHIELD. This is all so admirable, I must admit. It sounds like a peaceful solution is possible.

Bobbi and May see Kara being locked up until they can be sure of her, even though her brain scan seems Hydra free. Then Bobbi goes to see Mack, they discuss the goings on and Hunter’s forgiveness. Or rather the lack of it. She’s nervous about getting it and somewhat jealous and bothered that Hunter has already forgiven Mack.

Coulson and May chat and they don’t seem to be on the same side anymore. Coulson tries to apologize, but alas May is mistrusting and sullen. I find this ’emo’ May a bit worrisome. Everyone, from the Inhumans to Shield seem to be letting their personal issue run roughshod over everything, which is never a good sign.

Lincoln and Skye get ready to go. Skye tries to explain to FitzSimmons the quantum entanglement travel method. Evidently, he can see where others are and will only appear if Lincoln and Skye are nowhere near people from Shield.

Raina tells Gordon that she had a vision showing her of SHIELD’s attack and suggests she should meet with SHIELD, instead of Jaiying. This does seem ever suspicious, I must say. It sounds like Raina wants to undermine Jaiying and take control of Afterlife for herself. It would certainly fit with Raina’s previous actions.

Jaiying is packing stuff and getting things from a fellow while waiting for Skye and Gordon. Skye spends some time explaining to Jaiying that SHIELD wants to help.

SHIELD command says they have to send Gonzales, not Coulson. They claim Coulson is too close and not neutral about Skye. They use Tony Stark’s creation of Ultron as an example of people not noticing when someone close to you is doing something they shouldn’t. Coulson is not happy about it, but he agrees.

Fitz and Simmons have a chat about killing and not killing Ward. May and Bobbi leave to scout ahead. Mack resigns. He won’t work under Coulson as director, feeling the alien has tainted him. He feels from his own experience of Kree tech, that Coulson can not be trusted. I do tire so of all these personal shenanigans that are interfering with the team.

Cal and Jaiying chat. Cal wants war, Jaiying says they have no choice but to meet with SHIELD. Jaiying wants to know how to keep peace, Cal suggests letting himself be turned over. May and Bobbi chat about who they’d be without Shield.

Coulson, Hunter and Fitz discuss the merits of the council. And Coulson says, rightly so, they’ve been spending too much time together!

On the plane with Bobbi and May, a sudden auto landing prompts Bobbie to ask what’s going on. Turns out May is Kara, using her face changing tech. She’s angry at Bobbi believing her to be manipulative in trying to help Kara. But luckily Bobbie is the better and manages to get the upper hand and knock Kara out.  She then leaves the plane to see where they landed. But Ward is there and immediately knocks her out with an icer.

The planes, with the real May piloting, land in Afterlife. We see that Gonzales is given a ‘secret weapon’. Oh dear. I’m not sure where this is going.

Agents-of-SHIELD-Season-2-Raina-and-Gordon

In Afterlife, Raina who tried to convince Gordon she must meet SHIELD, has the tables turned on her. It seems, Gordon isn’t so gullible and Jaiying says to keep her locked up.

Gonzales gets to Afterlife and Jaiying turns over Cal. Skye takes Cal outside to the SHIELD agents. Cal gets all mushy on the walk. Gonzales hands over the ‘contingency plan’ to Jaiying.

May and Skye meet and chat about objectivity and being too close to stay objective.

marvels_agents_of_shield_s02e20_still

Gonzales has given Jaiying a Chinese set of coins fashioned into a necklace, he found in Whitehall’s office. It is meant to be a symbol of peace. He explains SHIELD’s goal, which is just to index InHumans and keep people safe. He thinks that SHIELD can get to know the InHumans and then just be ready if any of them goes berserk. Then Jaiying offers a piece of history of Inhumans.  A manufactured (from Diviners) blue crystal, which contains the Terrigen Mist; she drops it and kills Gonzales. Then she shoots herself with Gonzales gun runs outside and declares SHIELD tried to kill her and this means war. Hmm, I did not expect his.

Our parting shot is of Ward tying up Bobbi and explaining to Kara that revenge must be planned and work for.

 

Dossier Notes:

I’m not sure about Coulson needing a board to bounce things off of. That hasn’t worked very well with Fury and it was almost disastrous in the Battle of New York. We tried it back in the beginning and it’s just always odd to have backset drivers.

Well, it is of no help if no one acts like they intend! I must say, I certainly wouldn’t have believed that Raina was going to be on the side of right. Or that Gonzales would be offering a personal symbol in an attempt to truly keep the peace.

It looks as though the rule the Inhumans had about keeping personal relationships to minimum was a good one. A pity there leader didn’t see fit to follow it.

Always sedate Cal when taking him in.

Is there no way to get that magic mask off Agent 33? It has become tiresome to see her walking around as others!

I say fie to all this personal angst! Take a moment and then Walk It Off! We are SHIELD agents, angst when you are off the clock!

Do not take Ward at his word! You people are wishing you’d shot him in the head, don’t think he’s suddenly turned a new leaf!
