my fearless prognostication;

Spoiler for Hidden:
Skye will kill ward, then everyone will think she is Hydra

So I was thinking that ...

Spoiler for Hidden:
Why did Skye automatically assume that Ward was the killer? Why wouldn't she assume that there was an intruder on the base?

Same here. :(

Spoiler for Hidden:
Because the base was like fort knox. and skye is operating on some corallary of Occams razor... its more likely the guy I KNOW is in here with me is a psycho killer than someone snuck in to the highly secured facility and is sneaking around offing paranoid security experts.

Spoiler for Hidden:
The blood on Ward that he passed off as a reopened injury, connected with how bloody the corpse was. Also, I don't think an intruder would have left the penny on the door in order to know if someone had found the body. Then, Ward convicted himself by claiming that he had just spoken with Koenig, who was allegedly opening the hangar doors as Ward was collecting Skye. By the time she was on the plane, Ward's guilt was pretty firmly established.

By the time she was on the plane, yeah ... but it still seemed to me that she bought his guilt a little too soon.

So what did everyone think of last night's show?

I think they're doing pretty well now, and the Hydra Reveal from Winter Soldier has given the show a shot in the arm.

+1 for the "file transfer." :)

In general, the show has come a long way from its slow beginning. Having the integration with CA:TWS (and Thor 2) has only given it that much more clout, in my eyes. I can't recall another movie/TV show relationship that has been so closely knit.

yes, the file transfer was golden...

and the show is finally locked itself down into being a real series with a real plot of its own, rather than just "that show about c list marvel call-outs for the hardcore nerds"

I think for me its more that it seems they had to hold back a lot until the Winter Soldier came out to prevent spoilers, but now they're free to run with everything they have the series seems more energized.

"Prepare for a large file transfer" ranks up there with the previous week's "what is a Man-Thing?" in terms of good quotes go.  Of course the sight gag that follows is priceless.

Still the superhero show quote of the week goes to Arrow who had Summer Glau's supervillain monologing about how she's going to kill Felicity to Diggle only to get nailed by the van Felicity was driving.

The "file transfer" comment had my laughing a good 5 mins after it happened.
Great show so far. I hope it gets a 2nd season - I would hate it to be like many shows that set up a great story arc and then we never see how it finishes.

Like Flash Forward - loved the whole concept and the series - they set up a lot of nice things to continue the story with the last episode - and it got cancelled.

I, too, was disappointed when Flash Forward got cancelled.  It seems that the really cool shows don't make a second season.   I also liked "The Event" and that got cancelled too.   I think though that Agents of Shield was renewed.

Confirmed this afternoon, actually. As well as announcing another Marvel series.

Very cool.

Agents is one of my favorite shows right now and I would have hated to not see how this whole Hydra thing plays out.

This show is good now.   Thank you Captain America 2.

But they still can't quite seem to get why it sucked before.   I noticed they had to put in a scene where Skye and Fitz couldn't resist pressing buttons and acting a lot like Jar Jar Binks when a box of weapons was presented to them.   "Hilarity" ensued.   :roll:

Seriously?  They can't see that stuff like that was part of the problem before?

I'm willing to take a moment like that every now and again. Every dark fiction has to have light moments to break up the unrelenting grimdark. the problem before was that they were cramming those into every single episode, and often letting them drag on too long. it became less a part of the pacing and more a part of  bad formula. Hopefully now that Cap is out of the way and no more main-line movies they can tie into will be coming down the pipes till at least next year (not much they can do to tie into ooga chaka) they can settle into better writing and less "drag it out till cap2 gets here"
