2 for 2 on reasonable explanations!
Skaisy. Love it. But also feel sad for it, sounds like Skeezy lol.
I took it as the wind? e.g. was so hard she couldn't walk through it?
Exactly (re Fitz).I thought I can't believe he - wait, of course he did lol.
I was so excited we got Simmons back too. I remember thinking oh come on, don't do this to us, that's so cliche! Then "wait, he has her! he doesn't have her! he has her! ARGGH!" lol. Needless to say, I was very pleased with how it came out. And I audibly "awwwwww"ed at her resting her head in his lap <3. I forgot ALL about Randolph! I too didn't catch the Skye/Daisy thing until everyone else pointed it out. Two things I did note that were posted as questions either in comments or in the review. Why did Fitz send the flare? Originally, Coulson sent it for light, because Fitz was trying to see. It was too dark and he couldn't see anything. Did they mean send it through? Not sure. Awfully serendipitous if no. Why could Daisy hear it? I don't think it was just b/c of her sensitivity to sound. It' supposed to be able to kill inhumans (not just suck them into a portal), isn't it? Inhumans probably operate at a different frequency and are therefore affected differently? That's just my hunch though - I don't have any proof of that or a reason to substantiate it. I'm so torn about Ward. I LOVE the character, and liked his legit redemption, but as Marissa pointed out too, we can't just go that path. I like him as a baddie, but a baddie that our biggest hero has an old "thing" for :) Do you think May's ex is intentionally sandbagging Daisy's team? It kind of seems that way to me. Can someone remind me what is meant by Ward being responsible for May's dad? Wonder what's going to happen with the teen. He pleasantly (and wickedly) surprised me. I'm just so impressed by this season to date. Oh, and I just loooove Lincoln. SO ready for him to join them.
ding ding.the writer who was on the talking dead emphasized the desire to focus on water. we'll see how that turns out. they're a pretty target on that big shiny boat.
You listed most of my points.I'll just add a few.1 - the "how people would act" argument is really "how I think I would act based on - well, nothing". We THINK we know how WE would act in a situation, but we don't know until tested. THEN, spoiler alert - we're not all the same people. Some are naive, some are street-smart; some fight, some run (I am the slowest runner on the planet, hence why I learned fight lol). If EVERYONE acted the same way, based on one person's hunch, that would be the most boring and unrealistic TV possible. I believe the "base" was a school from what I noticed, but it also could have been a hospital. Didn't seem like a typical "base", and I'd bet it was definitely a civilian building. Everything was "temporary/makeshift" looking. Adrenaline - non-zombies can withstand getting shot, stabbed, broken bones and more without even noticing due to adrenaline. It's by design/nature - if you can't feel your injury or notice it, then you are more likely to get yourself to safety instead of look at it and go OMIGODIMFREAKINGOUTANDCANTMOVEAND*CHOMP*DEAD. The soldier who was tortured was also (to him? not sure the reality) played by Ofelia. If he actually was starting to love her, her betrayal could have seemed even worse, or, he could have just really, really wanted to hurt her father so took a twofer. I was surprised he missed, but where she was shot in the arm/shoulder is only a few inches off from her heart. was almost center mass on a swinging shot. plausible. weird, but plausible. As for leaving the kids behind? Yeah, I did think that was incredibly stupid. Have you looked outside though? There's a LOOOOT of stupid out there. Sadly, that was probably the most realistic stupid move of all. Good thing the zombies were coming in or she would have been being raped in a closet.
Lawrence, most people in the military don't ever even fire their weapons on living (or in our case, living-esque) targets. So, that element + fear = accuracy out the window. Then, didn't they say it was either 20000 or 200000 walkers in that stadium? The soldiers had to cover a lot of physical area, meaning distance between them = flankable. Once the fence fell, they no longer had the 300-style spartan corral, and they were able to be surrounded. Plus a lot of people bailed. I think it actually *was* realistic in the sense of what happens when you put people in new situations. Almost every type of simulation shows that people do not rise to the occasion, they sink to their lowest denominator and to the highest level of their training. If actual killing wasn't it for most of them, this is all new territory for them. Don't get me wrong - I see how with just the guns it could seem that way, but real world military training is very different (I'm not in the service, I've just trained in hand to hand combat/MCMAPP with dozens for several years - big topic of conversation).
Even the way the blood came out of Jerome's mouth was practically a painted-on Joker smile! I think I'm in a little denial about it - I highly doubt he could have lived from a carotid stab, and he looked pretty dead, but weirder things could happen.At first I thought it was theatrics - gave Jerome a chance to escape if he appears to be dead - retractable blade & a ketchup packet could do in a pinch, eh? But when fakehero started monologuing, I started to lose hope. I find it really hard to believe that everyone bought Franklin's crap hook, line and sinker (I can't remember his name, but he was Franklin on TB so he's Franklin in this comment). James Frain is a good actor, and he was intentionally wooden and posing for the camera - meant to look bad! - in this. Anyone have any theories on how Jerome could have lived? I HATE the "as inspiration" instead of him being it, and there HAS to be some better explanation. Just a laugh wouldn't make a bunch of people go bonkers. Remember in Batman when Scarecrow released the hallucinogenic agent in the water? Think there's anything like that? Subliminal messages? SOMETHING to fill in these gaping plot holes before the entire season plummets to its death through them???
Precisely. Marie, I'm virtually kissing you right now.(ryan, marie and I are both female, if that were unclear).Now, on to substantive posts...
