What's interesting is that in WINTER SOLDIER, Fury's policy of "compartmentilization" (is that a word?) is called into question. But, how is that different from putting SHIELD agents at different clearance levels, with each level being on a "need to know" basis? It's the same thing IMO! The entire organization was run that way! So, Coulson needs to put his big boy panties on and stop pouting about being out of the loop. I love Coulson. But, puh-leeeeze....his pride is getting in the way on this issue.
We don't really know what Ward revealed to the Siren. We just know that Melinda May wasn't the one he loved. He could have said "Hail Hydra" for all we know.
The more I think about it, the more I realize this is textbook Whedon. He did the exact same thing on BUFFY with Angelus. We should have seen this coming! Because it was action-adventure instead of the horror/supernatural genre, we didn't. But, they've done this before. Ward = Angel/Angelus, right down to his black wardrobe. The only thing Ward is lacking is a better sense of humor. Don't be surprised if Ward goes even darker & starts to toy with Coulson & his team, making them all doubt themselves & each other. Some of the best stuff on BUFFY was when the Scooby Gang was being terrorized by Angelus, scared out of their minds.
How many times am I gonna fall for the Whedon trope of Mr. Tall, Dark & Handsome being a good guy? It NEVER works out! I feel like an idiot missing all the clues. Maybe I was tricked into a sense of safety because this show was so firmly part of the Marvel franchise, with handsome superheroes. But, darn it - they got me again!
There really was no "Clairvoyant." All of them were HYDRA. HYDRA just knew all the information about their people because HYDRA *was* infesting SHIELD. It will become more clear next week when Floral Lady returns (forgot her name) & talks w/Ward. But, there was never a person who had the ability to read minds, just a computer program capable of anticipating people's future actions (as stated in WINTER SOLDIER).
The episode title makes a lot of sense now - "Turn, Turn, Turn." It could apply to Agent Ward (potential triple agent, meaning deep undercover). But, it also applies to every plot twist in the episode. Great stuff! Keep up the good work. And, if Ward reveals he's HYDRA very soon, I now know why Agent Triplett appeared - because Coulson's team will need another hard-core soldier on board when Ward. There is still one question that hasn't been answered though - what the heck is Skye, for Pete's sake?
NOOOOOO! Anything but Pan. I'd prefer Jafar, Maleficent, even Ursula in her land-based form to Pan. Egads....
Zelena said exactly what she wanted all three items for - to go back & change the past. It's one of the "rules" of magic that can't be broken (also seen in OUAT IN WONDERLAND). But, she's going to find a way to break it, which will set up the storyline for Season 3. Does anyone else want to see a house dropped on Zelena sooner than that? Where is Dorothy when you need her...
AGREE! See the movie ASAP because the details revealed in the most recent episodes will make more sense the sooner you piece it together with the movie.
OMG - it all becomes clear when you see THE WINTER SOLDIER that what we've been watching is just one small piece of a huge puzzle. Now it all fits - the Clairvoyant, the drug given to Coulson & Sky, Mike Peterson. About the only thing we have left to discover is WHO Sky is (and if it can be used to their benefit ASAP). I'm just glad that we can pretty sure that our team stands a good chance of being part of the good guys. Whenever people are prevented from learning the whole truth, that's a sure bet those people are part of the "good" team...as Nick Fury learned too late.
