I'm glad Ward's back in the show. He adds a lot.

Definitely.  I'm also glad that he's still kind of a gray character in that he isn't finding redemption, but he's not turned into Mr. I'm the ultimate bad guy either.  He's conflicted but great at hiding it.  All the Inhumans stuff is really intriguing too; makes me wonder who will be in the movie come 2018.

So that was one hell of a finale!  This whole season, in fact, was amazing for a network TV show; they seem to be really taking a lot more storytelling risks than is typical for a show like this and it is really working.  I never would have expected what we saw in the finale and yet it all felt pretty much right.  I'm pretty impatient now for season 3 though I suspect it will now find a bit more equilibrium than what we saw in season 2.  So far, I'd say season 1 was heavily characterized secrets, season 2 was about dealing with those secrets and finding yourself after everything is on the table, and season 3 will likely be about growing after you found yourself as almost every character seems to have resolved something in that regard.

I liked it!  I didn't know it was going to be a 2-parter this week, so that was a nice surprise.

I'm sorta surprised they killed off
(click to show/hide)
but I guess the character outlived their usefulness.  Of course, we never saw the body disposal...

I really like how this year and last, the TV show rolled out in the same order as the films (Winter Soldier last year, Age of Ultron this year).  Marvel excels at this stuff.  I do like the DC shows (well, Gotham and The Flash, anyway) but the two can't exist in the same universe, what with Bruce Wayne still being a teen.  I wonder how Supergirl will fit in?

This is an awesome non-spoiler post, so I wanted to call out kudos. I'm watching them tonight, and now I'll be paying attention to something with a payoff while having no idea what the payoff is.

Good show, Chandler! Bloody good show!

It's funny, though, I read them as being brother and sister when the series began.  Sort of the opposite of Luke and Leia.  Hmm...

Im a big fan of superheros, but not so much regular people.

Would I like this show?

That wasn't what surprised me. The other WHAT THE FUCK YOU DOIN TA MAH PEEPL surprised me.

....ahem.

Dammit.

I can't write about this without spoiling, even with spoiler tags.

Must process...

It was 3 or 4 eps before I realized it was two names. :) They've gone through an awful lot (in all senses). I did enjoy Fitz ending Mack's sentences though. FITZ BE BACK!
