Only May's group went south. Ward's group had suspicious indications (closed prison Shield didn't know was closed) but Coulson's issues could have been coincidental.
The prison wasn't closed, was it? I thought they showed a cup of coffee sitting on the counter, still steaming.

Was TWS clip at the end actually meant to be part of the episode? Putting this episode in context with the film?
The impression I got was that Fury was in a car chase at the exact same time the plane was being rerouted by Hand.

That may not necessarily be the case though.

Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

yeah, I took it to be a way to drop a time-anchor for the events of the show vs. the film.

If not, it's pretty confusing.

Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

Personally, I want Hand to be the bad guy (well, gal), what could the team do against her? It would be thrilling to see.

Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

That was shocking that Ward shot him (and I doubt it will be easily forgivable) but Ward has the rest of Shield standing in his way.

I think the question is whether he did it under orders or not. The implication seems to be that he did.

I always wait for DVD, so I'll just have to muddle along.
Out of interest is that just because you don't like going to the cinema?

As I see people say this a lot. I don't know what the prices are like in the US, but here in the UK a cinema ticket costs me less than buying a brand new DVD/Blu-ray. So doing that would actually cost you more. And also then if you don't actually like the movie, you're stuck with a physical DVD you'll never really want to watch again.

Unless your local cinema is really expensive. My average price is about £7-8. A brand new DVD is generally £9.99, a Blu-ray around £12.99-14.99
Exactly right. I came to really hate the experience of being sardined in with a couple hundred rude people. I really can't recall ever going to the movies and not being annoyed with someone on some level from a mere facepalm to wanting to use a flamethrower on their whole family.

I grant that the price is a problem. DVDs at less than $20 were comparable in price to an evening for two at the movies, if you factor in popcorn and soda. A $32 BD is pushing that envelope for sure. But I honestly think the convenience of being home and not dealing with other human beings is worth it.

And yeah, it's true, we have a lot of movies we'll never watch again. Another trade-off I guess.

It still might not be a bad idea to make an exception this time, though, if you're watching AoS. Maybe a matinee showing, so it's cheaper and less likely to be crowded.

Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

I do wonder if the twist is too emphasized right there. It is possible she isn't a bad guy and we don't truly know what's going on just yet.

I basically see two possibilities: One, there's another twist yet to come or Two, we've switched from the plot twist stage to the "stopping the bad guy" stage.

Yep. Did you pay attention to everything that actually happened during the episode, rather than what everyone was saying blindly?

(Hint: She likely has every reason to believe the Bus has been compromised by hostile forces.)

Maybe the cast has been replaced by LMD and she knows this?
