I don't see Ward ever rejoining the team anymore. He either turns against Garret and kills him or follows through orders and gets mortally wounded, but then he somehow uses TAHITI drugs to survive. Cue next season him being a complete neutral-party psycho, allowing us to observe step by step on how it affects "normal people". - IT gives both Skye and Coulson and personal investment into it since both of them survived that drug for various reasons, so that continues their plotline.- IT could make those two a targets for Ward if his self-preservation instinct is stronger than the supposed psychosis.- IT gives a sufficient way for Ward to develop Taskmaster's abilities(just with a wee bit different downside).
If Snow feeling "sorry" for Cora's death was the magic plot-cure of her heart, the show should not have spent WHOLE TWO SEASONS saying that its not that simple. Heart splitting is something one would expect from Disney movie, not OUAT. OUAT got its viewership solely because of the writers willingness to subvert fairytale cliches - "love" alone does not get you anywhere, you can fail, you can die, death is final, etc. Both Robin and Aiden are boring masculine manpain gary stus forcefully written into the show to prevent other possible romances and to engage in forced boring romance pairings with a kickass female...at the cost of her empowerment in terms of narrative. Seems the same to me. 99% of this episode goes against the logic and laws that the show itself has set up already.
THe hilarious thing is that they were nonchalantly okay with Aurora and Phillip ACTUALLY having betrayed them at the start of episode.
