You looking for an old design?

so happy about this

I’m so happy about this friendship. I want to cry

Finally someone is taking care of him 

Maybe Lance or him can do the same with Ward 

I love Mack! I love him! He is the best!

My favorite part of the episode. (This, and the 0.5 second long Fitzward moment in the trailer.)

Ward was putting his life on the line for a cause that he thought was worthy, and that’s what we do, as S.H.I.E.L.D. agents. That’s something that’s going to be brought into question. It’s a great concept because as soon as you’re able to protect someone, you’re able to hurt somebody, at the same time. Those are the questions and conundrums that Coulson now has to deal with, being Director. He doesn’t get to be like, “Well, we’re not asking questions because it’s come from above.” He has to decide those ethical questions now.

Are they finally going to acknowledge these parallels? It sounds like it…

If you think that Grant Ward deserves a redemption arc please stop.
If you think that Grant Ward can be compared to Bucky please stop.
Just stop.

Wanker alert. Cleanup in aisle 5, please.

YOU MEAN LIKE WHEN A GUY DOES A SHIT LOAD OF WRONG THINGS BUT ONLY DOING IT BECAUSE HE FELT LIKE HE OWED THIS MAN WHO SAVED HIM FROM A HELLHOLE, EVERYTHING, AND BECAUSE IN TIME, THIS MAN BECAME NOT ONLY HIS ADOPTIVE FATHER BUT ALSO HIS ABUSER AND MANIPULATOR AND BASICALLY THE ONLY THING THIS GUY COULD THINK ABOUT IS SAVING HIS ADOPTIVE FATHER’S LIFE BECAUSE OF THE FATHER-SON BOND THAT HAD GROWN BETWEEN THEM.

FITZ SEES WARD ON THE PREVIEW

OH MY FUCKING GODDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD

YES YES YES YES I’VE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS MOMENTTTTTTT

I can’t even worry for simmons being hydra after the looks fitzward shared

I didn’t even notice that on first viewing but yes! A FitzWard scene, finally!

Hi, I know you ship skyeward and even though I don't like ward, I can understand why you ship him and skye. What I can't understand is how you seem okay with what he did to fitz? this is not hate, I'm just genuinely curious. <3

Make no mistake, I’m not at all okay with what he did, but I’m not blaming him solely. Why? He had no intention to hurt or kill Fitz & Simmons. He did what he could to give Fitz and Simmons a chance to live. He didn’t anticipate the pod malfunctioning. He didn’t think the plan through. He didn’t weight the full consequences. He had a moment of weakness, of naivety, and he and Fitz paid for it severely. 

He tried to get the best of both worlds: Spare Fitz like he spared Buddy and gain Garrett’s approval, but fate had different plans, with Garrett intercepting (and, insinuated, killing) Buddy with the scope & rifle, and the Pod sinking instead of floating. Fate wasn’t in his favor and he unintentionally made a decision, unable to have both. He had the worst of scenarios and all of us have had those crossroad moments where we tried our best and we still inevitably failed. I sympathize with him because I can understand his circumstance and his mentality in that moment. 

Does it hurt me Fitz is hurt and impaired? Yes. Just as it pains me of the daily reminders of how I fucked up. I’m not excusing Grant. He did the deed. But he didn’t do it out of cold blood or with murderous purpose like some people like to pin on him. 

Coming from a military family, I hear war stories of soldiers executing commands from their leaders, and making split decisions to save themselves or their comrade. Vietnam was worst and my uncles still suffer the aftermath. 

I think what people need to do is sit down and realize you can’t judge someone’s decision without being in their shoes. You can say “I would do this, so could he,” and treat it as a fact when it’s no more than an opinion, no more valid as saying “I’m voting Republican and you should, too” to a Democrat.  I wish I could say “I would have done this,” but realistically, I would have done what my uncles would have done, what my grandfather would have done, and I would live with the same guilt and red stain on my hands like the rest of them. 

Lesson of the day: No one has a winning hand. You got to chose the best cards and hope for the best, and that your opponent doesn’t have better luck.

So. Am I reading it wrong, or was Ward actually replaced? Original team consisted of: the leader, two specialists, two scientists and a rookie.

Team now consists of: the director, the field leader (May), two… um, three specialists (one female – Skye, and two male – Trip and now also Hunter),…

Resident Hydra expert, a spy, a wild card (aka person who fits any kind of role). But i wonder as well. They seem to be filling every of his possible roles by other characters. Which i don’t like. However he is the only one who knows how the enemy works, and, he is the person in best position to say some day (soon i hope) “don’t do that, that’s how shield ended up compromised/that’s what hydra used”.

Regarding Simmons, she’ll be fine. I don’t doubt it. Like someone else is going to be dragged through mud like Ward? I’d like to see it.

Yeah, I’m not worried about Simmons for that reason alone. Still worried about Ward though. As frustrated as I was about his zero screentime this ep, now I am the tiniest bit relieved because this way at least they couldn’t torture or drag him through the mud further.

So, who do you think was more frustrated with this episode, the Ward fans or the Simmons fans? (As a fan of both, I’m twice frustrated. At least they’ll both be back next episode.)

Apart from the Ward-and-Simmonslessness, I mostly liked the episode. Plot was okay. But I’m watching this show for the characters, so.
