The Antony & Cleopatra line was hilarious. Are people catching all
the Shakespeare references that writers throw in? Jamal quotes a lot of
lines so quickly, they almost go under the radar. But, his, "Y'all
know that's a tragedy, right? Everyone ends up dying," might just be a
foreshadowing of Hakeem and Camilla's future. BTW, that's not just
Shakespearean fiction. Their tragic Romeo/Juliet style of
suicide-via-mistaken-death has been accepted as historic fact for
centuries

Sounds like all the stuff you didn't like is what people do when they're in denial. Doesn't matter what they are actually saying. It's an excuse to distance themself from the reality. Making someone's race part of your comment is a tactic to deflect something away immediately. People do it because they know the reaction it will get.

That's where this might be going. The Kree will probably decide that they can't allow Earth to create a generation of Inhumans bent on destruction. They feel responsible for all the mayhem that will ensue. So, KreePete will return with the Blue Man Group (hopefully Artie & Myka) & try to draft SHIELD agents into retrieving the crystals that cause the End of the World. Standing in their way will be HYDRA (who want to use the Inhumans, erroneously thinking they can control them), SWORD (who might be convinced to allow the Kree to take their dangerous crystals & leave), the Inhumans (we have a right to exist), and Stark Industries (anything Tony can't control needs to be stopped). This will bring in the Guardians of the Galaxy, who will do some weird sh*t in the second movie and usher in a temporary detente, as per their moniker.

I've got it - KreePete!

1) TV Fanatic needs to quit with the multiple Flash ads. I have high-speed internet, and it still slows everything down. Knock it off! 2) Agree about Vin-Tak. Once we saw Eddie McClintock, our family just squealed "PEEEETE!" I expected Myka to walk around a corner every time he was on screen. Nitpick: Vin-Tak letting Skye go didn't make sense, considering his society thinks she needs to be destroyed. And how did he lose his own memory if his Stick Thingy only works when he holds it? 3) Am also missing Ward. Where is our favorite Hot Evil Dude? I can see how Ward will be redeemed though, now that Skye is an Inhuman. He will be the one who protects Skye from both SHIELD and Hydra. 4) Great episode! So glad they followed up last week's with more information on the Inhumans and the various ways different cultures and people consider them. Note about Simmons though - with all the different mutations that happen, there is no way Simmons would ever be able to formulate any "cure." What is altered lies buried deep in the DNA, unknown to even current Kree. It sounds like they can't predict what Terragenesis will do to a person. If they don't know, Simmons wouldn't either; and she certainly wouldn't be able to formulate anything to counteract it.

Yep, "Odin's" interest may be peaked. But, I suspect his interest in the Inhumans won't be a good one for Earth.

When did Emma lose her "superpower" - her ability to tell when people are lying? If there hasn't been an episode where that happened, then are TPTB completely ignoring it for plot convenience? Characters were lying left, right, & all around Emma in this episode and she should have known it immediately. Poor writing when you have to just ignore an established character trait.

LOVED the elevator scene with the 3 brothers, and seeing Terrence Howard sing and really play piano for a full song. Finally! Luscious Lyon, the music mogul & star, actually sings in his own show. That was a long time coming.

It does look good onscreen. But, every nighttime soap fan could see this coming from the pilot episode. Anika is the Textbook Burned Ingenue, like Afton Cooper from DALLAS or Sammy Jo from DYNASTY. And, the whole "family unites against invader while they battle each other" development has Ewing Oil written all over it. If people were too young to have watched, or don't remember, DALLAS - Jock Ewing was a mean s.o.b. when the series began. He was a rough, raw oilman who clearly favored Bobby. JR was not the favorite son, and over time developed his bag of tricks to get the attention he craved from his "Daddy." It's kind of amazing how Larry Hagman made JR the beloved character in the show. Anyway, Billy Berretti = a more successful Cliff Barnes. I wonder if we'll see him eating Chinese takeout in future episodes.

Porcupine Girl - that's Raina's tag name in our house now. My daughter gave it to her. We think Mack & Bobbie are working for Stark Industries. All the high-tech stuff just feels like vintage Stark. I'm also glad we'll see more of Skye's mother in flashbacks so our last memory of her isn't the same as Cal's - thrown in a ditch, carved up by Whitehall. We'll actually get to know her, with the end game being that Skye needs to find out about her, too. Speaking of Cal, BEST line of the episode was the flowers one IMO. But, that begs the question - why don't those with Inhuman origins know what they'll become? Their DNA allows them to survive the Terrigan Mist. But, they don't inherit anything other than that from their Inhuman ancestor? Simmons is getting scary. She's representing the total arrogance of humans who assume that anything they cannot control, explain or define should be eliminated or destroyed. She's fear run amock.
