Quite pleased as I actually called that early which I never seem to manage.

Not to be confused with dethklok

I wonder why Marvel so publicly announced that reference anyway.

I don't know much about the comic character, but I like the mixture of tragedy and fear we're getting from Mike. We want to help him, but he could easily kill us.

I keep thinking that Chloe Bennet is the star of the show and not Clark Gregg.

Batgirl makes extensive use of thought boxes and that what makes it one of the best titles.
But that is wrong. Batgirl is not a good title.

I know they like things to look a little more grounded, but I'm hoping they plan to slap some more cybernetics on him as time goes on. I remember comic-book Deathlok having more than a cyber-leg.

I actually really enjoyed this one. It made good use of all the characters and had some good fighting scenes. I liked the Rashomon structure of this episode. I can't believe Ming-Na is 50.

Mike is pretty cool as Deathlok.

The next episode isn't for another month? They haven't exactly scheduled this show well over the past three months.

^ Are you kidding? They just had a break. Inconsistent scheduling kills interest far quicker than a long break.

Well, he does have cybernetics in his eye. That being said, they might do something with his scared face and missing eye.

The episode itself was pretty so-so, but hooray for Deathlok! Too bad they so publicly spoiled that twist weeks ago.

Does anyone think there's a mole high up in SHIELD? Maybe Victoria Hand? Maybe SHIELD has been collaborating with Centepede to build super soldiers.

Ok, good.

BTW, I meant to say it earlier, but I like when the show does Spy-Fi. To me, that's what it should be about.

OH---CRAP, Olympics, that's kind of a special case.
Did they say something like "in two weeks" not "next week"?
I was kinda in the geeking moment and knowing it was Feb just automatically knew we should get a new episode every week this month.

What, March, the whole month!!! F**ing Olympics!!!

They may as well have not bothered coming back for just one episode in that case especially considering how critical it looks to be. Bad form, ABC.

That said, I thought this was a good one. A little tension perhaps on the May/Ward front, nice use of telling the story from different angles, and I certainly never expected what happened to Skye - damn. I hope Mike keeps being a part of this show too, should be interesting to see where he goes.
