Why does seemingly everyone want Emma to cozy up to Captain Hook? He's a pirate who made his living robbing and pillaging and generally being a bad person. Not to mention he chased around a boy for several hundred years with the intent to murder him. What kind of example does this set for Henry, hm?
Clearly, Quentin McCawley has found the One Ring. Somewhere on Valinor, Elrond is face-palming.
Renard's spy definitely needs to be careful, or he'll end up like all of Renard's other agents in Europe: dead. I think Adalind, too, was finally getting the hint on how much an amateur she actually is in the 'game' between Frau Pech and the Gypsy Queen. Also, regarding Juliette and her experience of the woge: my sister and I discussed this a few times over the past season, and the writers ended up doing almost exactly on what we decided was the best course of action - Rosalee, then Bud, and the Monroe.
Why, oh why?! Why did ABC schedule Agents of SHIELD opposite NCIS?! Seriously, NCIS is the one show my entire family loves to watch together. Agents of SHIELD is the only new show this fall I'm actually excited about, and they have to schedule it at the same time as the massively-popular NCIS? The one time, ABC, the one time!
@delphincik: There are tons of fanfiction stories out there explaining how Coulson might have survived - some stories, of course, more unlikely than others!
Anyhow, in terms of "Agents of SHIELD", I think the question of how Coulson's not dead is going to lure in a whole ton of Coulson fans - I count myself in that number! I'm very curious as to how they're going to explain that one without diminishing the impact of his death in "The Avengers"! I, however, am definitely not complaining about his apparent resurrection; Clark Gregg has done a fantastic job with Coulson, and I'm thrilled that he's coming back for more.
@klimville: The Machine itself ordered its own removal from the nuclear storage facility. It even confirmed the order in Special Counsel's voice, no doubt acquired using its voice capture software. It's anyone's guess where the servers are now. As for what Carter does with Elias, she has a few options. She could stuff him in a safehouse, she could let him go, she could complete the prisoner transfer thus putting him back in jail. And I missed Fusco, too!
I agree with Kaitcat that the behavior of the Medevac fellows was wrong. Funny, yes, but totally wrong.
Anyone else wonder whether the call Root got at the end was a product of her own broken mind? She's not exactly compos mentis.
Got a kick out of the vocal cameo by Mark Sheppard - Benedict Valda was the one talking to Leena on the video. Also nice to see Faran Tahir again as the head Regent.
@DeAnn: Regarding Detective Terney (the HR guy)- To judge by the expression on his face, he wasn't expecting a guy to pop out the back door of the house. I suspect his original intent was to shoot Carter in the back, but took advantage of the situation that presented itself. Also, I agree that someone should hurry up and put a few bullets in Root's head. The woman claims she's not a sociopath, but she shows no guilt or remorse about killing people to get what she wants. And, even if she isn't a sociopath, she's definitely a psychopath.
@Lily, BobR: The yellow box indicates someone who is aware of the existence of the Machine. Nathan Ingram, Finch, Alicia Corwin, Denton Weeks, Mr. Special Counsel (aka Pennsylvannia Two), Daniel Aquino, Reese, Henry Peck, and Root are (or were) all tagged yellow. They are not necessarily an asset of the Machine, nor, indeed, concerned with its best interests.
@braaf_hond: Thank you for the correction on the dates. You're absolutely right.
