[spoiler]Sif is perfect. Asgardian lady swordfighting is perfect. I want more Sif kicking ass on earth. Girl got a point-blank shotgun blast to her side and looked like nothing happened. My goddess.
Also, I like the episodes running along the events of The Winter Soldier. The on-the-ground look at the chaos and the paranoia was really intense.
I read spoilers about Ward being Hydra. Not surprised. Out of the team, the most likely Nazi is totally the white macho man. I didn't really like Ward anyway so it's fun to anticipate somebody shooting him in the face. I'm really impressed with every moment of Skye after figuring out he was Hydra. She pulled a Sansa on him, playing dumb and playing him in a way that so NEARLY worked. If it hadn't been for Mike, it would have (MIKE BBY I HOPE YOU DON'T DIE) and then she completely didn't let him talk his way out of it. She didn't let him make any excuses, seduce her or gain her sympathies. She reminded him and us EXACTLY what Hydra are: Nazis. And anyone who follows Hydra's goals is a Nazi. Ward is a Nazi and he cannot keep trying to deny that fact.
I just want either Skye to shoot him in the face or May to snap his neck with her bare hands.
Also Maria sassing anybody, up to and including the FBI agents coming to arrest her, is a beautiful thing. The woman is a joy and a treasure. So is May and I hope that woman has a serious plan going. May is everything that is good and beautiful in the world.
I wanna give Fitz a hug, though. Poor guy is so hurt by Ward turning out to be a Nazi. I mean, he's saved all of their lives more than once. The fact that he can do all that and still be willing to let them all die when necessary... that's frightening.[/spoiler]
[spoiler]Yeah, exactly, I think this should have been put slightly more forward in the film, although, I do admit it was a lot to fit, but Skye's reaction to it "You make me want to throw up" was what was needed, especially since Ward was trying to tell her that it changed!
I really hope they don't redeem Ward, he's a lot more...interesting? that way.
But must every villain in the MCU be sexist? I mean...calling Hill eye candy, wow. There's going to be a queue of people wanting to beat him up.
Oh, and the bit with Lola was hilarious, a bit scary, but funny.
Edit: while I'm at it, I must remind my new found love for Antoine Triplett, I hope we'll get a season 2 so that we can know more about his family, and where he comes from, and more backstory with Garrett and Ward![/spoiler]
