We should remember what the Doctor did in Season 1 though that made him the season's Big Bad. Mike Peterson's life was completely ruined, in the same way Hydra ruined the Doctor's life. The Doctor tore him from his son & literally turned him into a monster. Skye won't forgive that so easy. Who knows what else he's done to people in the past 20+ years w/Hydra? He became like just Whitehall in order to get back at Whitehall. Skye's mother would probably find that objectionable.
One point that isn't clear to me is whether the Doctor knows, or even cares, that it was Hydra who raided the village; not SHIELD. He seems to hold both responsible even though viewers realize it was Hydra that had the Diviner in its sites back in WWII. SHIELD/Coulson still has no idea that Skye's mother was the purpose of the raid & the reason that Hydra tore her family apart. And, the Doctor isn't telling. As for Ward...ultimately, his alliances lie with himself. He's going to do his best to help Skye find answers & get retribution. But, he isn't going to ally himself permanently with any group that could end him. He'll be that rogue character on the fringe that everyone hates, but sometimes needs in a pinch.
Last thought, not random. KYLE MACHLACHLAN knocks it out of the part as the Doctor. How great is his dialogue in the scene with Coulson? I loved the self-referential nature of it..."It's exciting, isn't it? Two parties, racing to a temple to see what's inside....life and death, passion, EMOTIONS! And, my little girl is going to be at the center of it all." He's a fantastic actor. I'm watching him on THE GOOD WIFE in a recurring role, and he's a completely different personality. They might even age him with makeup on AoS because on TGW, the guy is still as handsome as he was on TWIN PEAKS, almost 2 decades ago.
