It is going to suck when he turns into a good guy..........

Evil Ward is the best Ward
MrMartinMarvel - 5/1/2014, 9:42 AM
I hope Skye shoots him in the face.
RorMachine - 5/1/2014, 9:43 AM
How can he possibly be a good guy? Even if there's something about his mission that we don't know about he's already committed enough evil acts that there'll be no redemption for him.

This poster makes it look like the episode wont only be exploring Wards bascksory. Prehaps we get some insight into Fitz and Simmons life SHIELD?

*Before SHIELD

@ RorMachine

Non in this episode but in season two, you will see some hack writers will figure out some lame plot to bring him back into the fold.
Nomis - 5/1/2014, 9:46 AM
@ joe - Yeah, he's too far gone and done too much bad to come back to the "good side" (Although the show has been much better for it).

Unless he do a "Vader" where he sacrifice his life for the good of the team.
KingPatel - 5/1/2014, 9:49 AM
I feel like he's just a male Nina Myers, except less devastating.
0megaDaGod - 5/1/2014, 9:49 AM
He'll redeem himself just before dying, but there's really no way to redeem himself at this point. He's too far gone and done waaaayyyyy too much
AstonishingArachnid - 5/1/2014, 9:50 AM
@Joe How do you know this? have you got a time mahcine? Are you a writer for Season 2? Your just assuming the worst which is never good. redeeming Ward would be like redeeming Slade in Arrow. They started off good but they've killed to many and done to much damage to the point where there is no redemtion. Even if Ward wants it he's not going to get it.
0megaDaGod - 5/1/2014, 9:50 AM
Loving these posters. Very inventive, save for the previous one
Pasto - 5/1/2014, 9:50 AM
I think thats the route they will most likely take. They'll have Ward put down his life for the team, then Tripp will be the new 'muscle' of the team in season 2.
PsyGuy - 5/1/2014, 9:50 AM

You never know with Whedon. People said the same thing about Angel (and Spike...)
JoeMomma29 - 5/1/2014, 9:51 AM
@ Nomis

The team will find out that he was brainwashed and taken advantage of and all will be forgiven.
AsgardianHobo - 5/1/2014, 9:52 AM

Unless he do a "Vader" where he sacrifice his life for the good of the team.

Damn, haven't thought about that. I bet that's how it will happen
RorMachine - 5/1/2014, 9:52 AM
Nah, I don't think they'd be foolish enough to try that. My guess is Ward will stay the bad guy, albeit a semi-sympathetic bad guy, until the end of the series..or until he's clipped.
JoeMomma29 - 5/1/2014, 9:52 AM
@ AstonishingArachnid

You are a silly man there are no such things as time machines........Crystal Balls are the way to go.

RorMachine - 5/1/2014, 9:53 AM
PsyGuy, yeah but Whedon was smart enough to have a "get out of jail fee" card when it came to the vampire characters. No soul = evil, get soul back = good and wracked with guilt.
TheFirstAvenger97 - 5/1/2014, 9:53 AM
I'm loving these posters.
Pheezmatic - 5/1/2014, 9:54 AM
@Nom I hope not... They really need to keep him bad and then take him on a path where he only gets worse... Then give him some sort of costume and make him a true assassin in the vein of Deathstroke (but not exactly, just a little bit)
batz11 - 5/1/2014, 9:55 AM
Probably having to do it so they don't kill his brother or prediction stands...Paxton will be the Grim Reaper (Eric Williams) -- Ward will become Wonder Man (Simon Williams)...he will turn good, kinda...

"Fear the Reaper" tune on when Paxton was flying the jet in Turn, Turn, Turnepisode...
