I was suspicious of the captain right off the bat because, alas, he was played by the wonderful Jim Beaver. Rarely do they cast good and memorable actors in bit parts! But I have to say that ol' Cap doth protest too much: he was apparently perfectly willing to risk the lives of the rest of his crew to get his payback. That's cold!
Why in the world would Hotchner and company not immediately shoot the unsub when he didn't surrender? The guy's actively threatening the lives of hundreds of people (if not more!), and they ended up shooting him anyway. It only resulted in the fake-out drama of whether the plane crashed or not (when we all knew that it didn't).
It's worth pointing out that Tony wasn't guarding a bathroom - he was guarding a high-level meeting involving the director of NCIS, the SecNav, and a foreign diplomat.
Completely agree - 24/7 surveillance is expensive and horribly consuming on manpower. HYDRA can't afford to monitor every single employee all the time. Even if her apartment were bugged, they'd still need an actual person to monitor the feeds. Until "Age of Ultron" comes out, Tony Stark is the only person with an AI that can perform that task independently! (Unless HYDRA starts contracting with Decima Technologies, that is...) Coulson may not be able to personally drop in at her apartment anymore, now that she's drawn their attention. Either that, or their counter-surveillance will have to be even better than ever before. Think about how many alarms would go off if HYDRA recognized her dinner guest!
Maybe I like Hunter more than you do, or maybe he's distracting me with his British accent, but I think he's got more to him than meets the eye. He's certainly not as mercenary as he likes everyone to think he is. And Mac is just great. I love how he's patiently helping Fitz with his words!
It's also worth mentioning that ice floats (due to ice having a lower density than liquid water) - once he froze enough, Donnie would eventually bob to the surface.
Indeed, you are not alone. I think Oliver and Felicity are better off as friends, too - though I also think that Ray and Felicity were incredibly cute together!
The voice that addressed Sara was clearly male, despite the vocal disguise. (I'd far sooner think that it was Malcolm Merlyn who killed Sara than Thea, anyway.) It's worth mentioning that, whoever the killer was, Sara did not feel immediately threatened - and with her guard down, she was not able to avoid her sudden demise. It might have been Merlyn in his Dark Archer disguise, which is actually the uniform of the League of Assassins. The next question: What drew Sara back to Starling City? It was obviously something very serious, to judge by her words with Laurel. But did whatever-it-was have anything to do with Sara's murder? Less clear.
Heh, "reading into things" is half the reason I watch TV! I love guessing about what's coming next. (And I completely agree that Felicity working as a Nerd Herder might well be a friendly dig at Brandon Routh.) How long before Palmer uses his superior hacking skills and discovers what Felicity is up to on her free time? And how long will it take to get the gaseous rodent viruses off of his equipment? :-)

Coulson's wearing the perfect disguise - there's no tie in sight, so no one could possibly recognize him!
