Ah, I see there that you did! I had the screen up forever in my attempt to take 5 minutes to comment, so I think I missed it. That was a really cool article, thank you!
I am loving this show. Yes, it's a little like Grey's, but I find it more accessible and easier to identify with the characters. Like Grey's, I do tend to cry a little with each episode but it's not silly :).
Allison, regarding "I'm not an expert on medical cures or anything, but did anyone else find it weird that Sylvester's obsession with antibacterial soap somehow lead to him curing an ancient fungus?" When people over-use antibacterial soap, they can develop "superbugs" - e.g. highly resistant (read: strong/powerful) strains of bacteria on them. But, if in small quantities, not enough to make him sick = he'd develop antibodies to protect himself. You beat fungi with bacteria, so super fungi needed super bacteria. It definitely had to be a little of a perfect storm, but not so far fetched that I rolled my eyes. Signed, TV Fanatic's Regular Science Nerd Commentor
Amy, even though I don't know you, I remember your posts previously, and immediately thought of you (and two of my MS friends) during this, and my heart reaches out to you.
Maybe I'm being too hard on him, but I found myself saying out loud Yup! to Cole's statement of what he needs in a dad, and when Luke was whining about it all being his fault, also saying yup. Juliette less-so, but he didn't exactly try to help. Jeff actually did seem legitimately concerned at times and tried to help not once, but a few times. Luke was unaware, but to A) not be there for his kid (fine to get your rocks off but when you're faced with the consequences, own up) not apologize for NOT being there for him in any legitimate way, and then B) to basically make him have to torture Layla and maintain a lie? What a role model! I'm sorry, but he lost ALL respect from me. Sad part, it's probably entirely accurate, too. Which means I'd lose respect in real life as well. I whole-heartedly missed Juliette this week. Does Avery even know she is in rehab yet? Loving the bromances. All of them! Caleb. Yawn.
I'm not sure anyone actually KNOWS about what Walter did other than Walter and Sly, and hasn't Sly been basically at the hospital?If not, major plot hole. I too was yelling at Gleason for shooting through the door - how stupid! - but hearing him describe it later was awesome. Although, the reveal by whats-her-face had me expecting her to say "And I would've gotten away with it if it weren't for you pesky meddling kids!" - it even had a big SUV to stand in for the van. But I can forgive that for the rest of the fun episode. I think Happy was crushing on Gleason a little... and that everyone else was as well. I thought back too, how interesting their editing was so we didn't see what was going on - cutting to brittyblonde while Walter was muted talking to the rest, so we would be surprised. Everything that I thought was so weird made sense in retrospect. Why was Cabe just standing there? Ah, the video. Even their timing of electrocuting the fence I didn't get - how could they have been off on that? - then OHHHHHHH. Well-played, Scorpion.And MI6. Well-played.
I actually liked that it tied back to HYDRA. Gave it a much better way to expand without getting unruly. So many shows start to get really confusing and diluted in value from the introduction of too many plotlines and characters (I'm looking at you, OUAT) that I was glad it looped back in to HYDRA. There's no saying it won't tie into bigger characters later, but yes, I think it was highly improbable that they'd reveal Thanos on the TV series and not the movies. I really do enjoy Ros and Coulson. I hope she realizes that by being duped, she looked guilty as hell, and maintains her relationship with Coulson. Yay at FitzSimmons kiss. I had to rewind it to make sure I wasn't imagining it! So, if we're netting it down, Will is HYDRA, then. He could be squeaky clean but still be awful. Speaking of which, Ward... love to hate him. His character was so wooden S1, but I LOVE that that was intentional - a role within a role. As soon as the reveal was made, Brett Dalton was in his element. You KNOW he's an ahole. You KNOW he just killed a plane full of people. But he was so charismatic while doing it! I too was glad to see Ros' guy help the team escape. ATCU and SHIELD could make a formidable team. Such a good season this year.
But literally everything I type here I type knowing I could be completely wrong. This is the only show that you just can't get the best of! I am enjoying being continually stumped!
I don't think Frank drugged Catherine to implicate her. I thought she was in on it.
