I've got a feeling next week's episode is gonna be the best.
TheAbomination - 4/22/2014, 6:11 PM
Anybody know if this has been picked up for a second season yet?
MrCBM56 - 4/22/2014, 6:11 PM
I can't believe I missed tonight's episode. How was it?
JordanKing - 4/22/2014, 6:12 PM
Deathlok doing what everyone else was thinking of at the end.
Lozzy - 4/22/2014, 6:14 PM
@TheAbomination

I really want to know aswell.
TheAbomination - 4/22/2014, 6:15 PM
@MrCBM56

Best of the season, imo. Lot's of suspense and twist turning the last 20 minutes.
MrCBM56 - 4/22/2014, 6:17 PM
@TheAbomination

Gah!!! I can't wait to watch it
BubSnikt - 4/22/2014, 6:20 PM
The anticipation! I don't think anyone gives a shit about the backup story, all I care about is Ward. Cant wait!!!
JacuzziJoe - 4/22/2014, 6:28 PM
So. [frick]ing. good. Can we talk about what happened to Blackout?
Destined - 4/22/2014, 6:30 PM
TeamMay! Her going to find Agent Hill was awesome! Please put her in the movies already. May is done with Coulson and Ward's sh*t. Love her!
AlexanderLykins - 4/22/2014, 6:31 PM
I guess Hill didn't get that job at Stark.
Calder027 - 4/22/2014, 6:34 PM
The fact we have Maria Hill and that May was in "Ontario" pretty much means that Robyn Sparkles is making a cameo next episode...
UltimateNullifier - 4/22/2014, 6:36 PM
Darkforce Dimension, Triplett is Gabe Jones' grandson, back story on the Coulson and the Cellist, Bruce Banner tech used on Blackout, May and Maria Hill (and May's mother) go way back, Ward has Skye and the Bus, Koenig done got his throat slit...man, this episode had a ton of stuff.
LexHairFight - 4/22/2014, 6:39 PM
Re-posted from the other thread...

Skye is the Clairvoyant. Few people in the entire MCU can access information like she can. By bringing up the SHIELD agent, she took herself off the suspicion list. Ward was there to protect her. Think bac to Turn, Turn, Turn - Garret asks Ward if there is anything they would want and Ward turns to Skye. At the time we thought "they" was hydra, but they were clearly talking about SHIELD.

I think a reveal is, Skye actually has clairvoyant powers. It's why she's been so interested in the concept - 1) she knows if they are onto her and 2) she knows if there are others out there like her. She's not a hacker, she read's people's minds to gain login information.

That's my theory anyway. Just as logical as Zola.
LexHairFight - 4/22/2014, 6:42 PM
The other thing I think will happen is - Coulson was Hydra before his death. Fury didn't add those memories back, but it did tip him off to the pirate ship in Cap 2.
batmanvsuperman - 4/22/2014, 6:43 PM
Still cant get in to the show not my cup of tea but glade ppl like it..anyway arrow tomorrow cant wait
JoJo1982 - 4/22/2014, 6:44 PM
@thecaptain

Nah, Ward just said at the end what they needed Skye for

Which is to locate that hydra weapon or some sort that was in episode 2
UltimateNullifier - 4/22/2014, 6:46 PM
Since Triplett is Gabe Jones' grandson, it would be funny if May's grandfather was Jim Morita.
Calder027 - 4/22/2014, 6:49 PM
It's an interesting theory cap, but doesn't hold much... If she needed her clairvoyant powers to "Hack", who would she have to use her powers on in the bunker to hack the NSA? Koenig? He barely knew how to run his own PCs... Ward? Umm, just no... And you want to talk about access to information... think about Cap 2 and how much Zola had access to everyone's info... even with his Algorithm...

Re-post from another topic, my theory:

At this point, is it really hard to see that Zola is the Clairvoyant... it just makes so much sense... he can control Deathlok, he has all the psych reports from all the agents, he has the algorithm... and for those who say "well he got destroyed"... the guy put himself on 2000 ancient computers... and could put a chunk of his programing on a USB stick... he probably had a backup plan... Also, didn't the Russo brothers want him to stand up in his robot form and walk away from the explosion but it was ultimately taken out of the movie?

Anyways, takeaway message, Zola is Clairvoyant, has put himself in a reserve PC, still controls everyone... needs to know what happened to Coulson to make a new "body"... the man was a geneticist and biologist in the comics...
JoJo1982 - 4/22/2014, 6:49 PM
It's funny that Koenig was a Howling commando too


That died from Hydra
antoineflemming - 4/22/2014, 6:49 PM
The Clairvoyant IS Garrett. You misunderstand what he was saying. He wasn't saying that he wasn't "The Clairvoyant". He was saying that he wasn't clairvoyant. One is a title, and the other isn't. There also isn't any reason for either Skye or Coulson to be Hydra. In Turn, Turn, Turn, of course Ward and Garrett were talking about SHIELD - they're HYDRA. You've clearly missed the mark. Go back and rewatch the latest episodes, including this one, because right now you're wrong. Way wrong.
antoineflemming - 4/22/2014, 6:50 PM
@UltimateNullifier - you mean father.
antoineflemming - 4/22/2014, 6:52 PM
@Calder - thecaptainiswrong on this one.
UltimateNullifier - 4/22/2014, 6:54 PM
Yeah I don't get how it's not clear that Garrett is "The Clairvoyant." They explained all this over the last three episodes. He's the Clairvoyant, and he doesn't have any mind-reading powers, just security clearance. It's just a nickname he got for knowing all of SHIELD's moves before they made them. He's definitely not the head of Hydra, because we've already seen that Baron Strucker exists in this world. He's definitely working under somebody. Whoever Garrett is reporting to in Hydra I guess we'll find out. The Clairvoyant issue is resolved though.
0megaDaGod - 4/22/2014, 6:54 PM
Episode needed a bit more cowbell, otherwise it was solid

Glad next week will get back to the epicness

@thecaptainisright

If Coulson was Hydra the whole time before he died I might have to drop this show. Not sure if I could handle that
CoulsonLives - 4/22/2014, 6:55 PM
"Nothing Personal"








Well it feels kinda personal...
grif - 4/22/2014, 6:55 PM
loved hills scene in cap 2 when she blasted caps in those two hydra fools at the end without looking. what a badass.
eleven59 - 4/22/2014, 6:56 PM
We'll captain, of indeed you are right, those would be huge reveals to end the season on...
LexHairFight - 4/22/2014, 6:56 PM
Not denying Zola is still 'alive' or that he could the clairvoyant, however to the non-comic book fan, they wouldn't give a shit. Skye has been built up, we've grown to trust her. The general audience doesn't care about Zola. Pretty easy to work in a motive given her back story.
UltimateNullifier - 4/22/2014, 6:57 PM
@antioneflemming -

Yeah, maybe father. Ming-Na is 50 in real life, but that doesn't mean May is supposed to be 50 on the show. Jim Morita looked about 30 in Cap:TFA in 1945. If May is supposed to be late 30's-early 40's, he could definitely be her grandfather.
Calder027 - 4/22/2014, 6:58 PM
@Antoine A Happy Gilmore joke seems appropriate here...

Also, I do remember him saying that he wasn't clairvoyant, but the point is, he isn't the "top" Hydra guy, and at this point, if it's nor Strucker, it has to be Zemo... I think Garrett has to answer to someone, and my guess is it's Zola. Also, how could Garrett, control and send messages to Deathlok when he's attacking him and shooting at him... while being next to Coulson the entire time...
LexHairFight - 4/22/2014, 7:00 PM
I think the reason why people doubt Garret is because he's been pretty part time up until now. I think Ward works for Skye and recruited Garret, not the other way around. Ward's comment to Garret in Turn, Turn, Turn was letting the cat out of the bag, causing Garret to take the wrap and distract SHIELD.
Calder027 - 4/22/2014, 7:02 PM
@Captain

At this point, Skye will probably be a Jessica Drew (A lot of her origin seems to coincide with Drew's origin). Or some offspring of a Kree, which she may have spoiled in an interview by accident, revealing the blue man was Kree and was told to promptly shut it afterwards...

Zola wasn't built up in Cap 2? Did you not see the film? Man, he was teased and showed all the signs of "clairvoyance" or whatever you want to call it, as in he had access to even Level 10 stuff (Nick Fury, Alex Pierce level clearance). I'm sticking to my theory, you can stick to yours.
UltimateNullifier - 4/22/2014, 7:03 PM
So Skye had herself shot in the stomach twice by Quinn hoping Coulson would use the "Jesus Juice" on her? Not buying it.
LittleDanglyThing - 4/22/2014, 7:04 PM
That's the bitchy "im always right" Maria Hill we all know and love.
LexHairFight - 4/22/2014, 7:05 PM
@ eleven59 -
Those are the kinds of reveals that have been common on the show, haven't they? Zola wouldn't cut the mustard, unless they show him walking/flying around. I also think Marvel will want to distance Zola from Ultron which is why I don't think him walking and talking will happen.
Calder027 - 4/22/2014, 7:06 PM
@Captain

Ward recruited Garrett? You realize that Garrett was his SO and recruited Ward when he was a teenager right... don't think that makes any sense...

Also, if you remember the episode when they do the reveal that Skye is an 084, they kept saying that ppl were after her. Now if you watched Cap 2... Zola's algorithm went after people who were deemed to be a threat to Hydra, as Tony Stark and a pre-mystical Stephen Strange. So I wouldn't be surprised if his algorithm went after Skye and he sent Winter Soldier back int he day to kill her, and he failed.
LexHairFight - 4/22/2014, 7:06 PM
Yep Ultimate, she got what she wanted - the information on how Coulson was brought back.
JoJo1982 - 4/22/2014, 7:07 PM
I think ppl was expecting.... More, when they found out Garrett was the Clairoyant
antoineflemming - 4/22/2014, 7:09 PM
@Calder - you're assuming the Clairvoyant is the top guy, when he's never been described as such. Garrett acts like he has no superiors anyway, so even if the Clairvoyant was described as being the top guy, to the people working for him, he seems like that.

Bottom line: Garrett is the Clairvoyant, although possessing no clairvoyant powers, hence him being a "fraud". Ward is Hydra. And Skye isn't. She would not have had the reaction she had in tonight's episode if she hired Ward. Again, you're wrong. People doubt Garrett is the Clairvoyant because him being the Clairvoyant isn't all that interesting. They expected someone like Hand or Zola. But obviously the writers wanted the Clairvoyant to be Coulson's equal. Zola wasn't the Clairvoyant, and honestly his algorithm wasn't used at all. Coulson already explained it: The Clairvoyant simply had access to mission files. That's it. He got them from Hydra within SHIELD.
