Nope. You've not seen the publicity stills yet?

I was actually quite surprised that Coulson was the one behind TAHITI I was expecting a new character introduction there. Good moment.

Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

Coulson being behind Coulson's recovery was a shocker (though the video looked like a computer simulation, like Johnny Depp in the Transcence commercials).

but when was that happening? He was busy on the field for the past few years...when did they decide to desk-jockey him with a science job to oversee? That seemed weird. (yeah, not the saving-him-from-the-dead or mindwiping stuff is NOT weird )

No, it just looked like a jerky low-frame-rate video like a Skype call, say.

Well, according to the MCU Timeline, a year passed between Thor and The Avengers. Presumably Coulson's work on the TAHITI project would've come during that year.

Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

I'm just confused about when he had time to head up an ultra top secret project (at an ultra top secret underground location, including what had to have taken weeks if not months or even years of time to experiment with, and then resigned from it) to bring back the Avengers when the Avengers didn't even exist but for a few hours before he died.

This was an OK episode.

Fitz took it hardest when it was revealed Ward was a traitor.

Skye couldn't let Ward die when Deathlok zapped him with the gadget. Maybe she still cares about him.

So the whole purpose of Project Tahiti was to resurrect Avengers if they were to fall in battle.

ABC.com and HULU make you wait a week before letting you watch new episodes unless you pay $8 a month for the "premium" service-- "Hulu Plus".
At least some of the ABC shows will let you watch new episodes if you have one of a handful of cable providers, even with a free membership. I have one of the free memberships and all I needed to do to watch yesterday's OUAT was pick my cable provider. I think I've done the same thing for the last couple Castles too.
As for the episode, I enjoyed it. I likeed the Maria Hill appearance, and I'm glad that Skye was able to warn the others about Ward already. I was afraid they were going to try to find a way to drag that out for longer.
I have a feeling if they run into Talbot again, it's not going to be a pleasant experience.

No Skye''s an analyst who went through some on the job training when her world went crazy. Nazi's can kill at a drop of a hat. Good people argue about whether there should even be a death penalty for murderers convicted by a legal court.

S.H.I.E.L.D. agents shoot people at the drop of a hat with no recriminations too.

So does James Bond. License to kill.

And SHIELD was intertwined with Hydra. The corporate culture was skewed. In any case Skye was a capture civil libertarian who trusted Coulson and an undercover Ward. Not someone who went through the SHIELD/Hydra assessment, recruitment and training program.

The way the Ward thing is playing out, it looks like he still has a shot at getting back in with the team if he doesn't get killed off.
He's shot way too many Shield Agents in the head.

On the other hand, I suppose Black Widow killed her share, and she's a good guy.



Of course Stark himself was a merchant of death.


So I don't know. Simple math says you don't need Ward, May, and Triplett all on the same team. The way Skye was talking about traitors in the diner, it would be a very difficult job to reintegrate him into the team.


Also, nice to see the show mention that today's Hydra are not Nazi's.

Wow. I bet that scratched Lola's paint.

What was it that Hill said to Coulson about Lola at the motel?
