Yeah, you missed a big chunk of the episode. After getting out of prison after 44 years, old man Whitehall found her again, and she hadn't aged at all. He cut her apart piece-by-piece over a long period of time, until he could extract a youth formula from her, which he drank and returned to his younger self. With Skye's mom all used up, Whitehall chucked what was left of her body, and Skye's dad found it.

I thought they were insinuating that he took her organs.

That's what he did...took everything he could use.

I don't lurk as much as I used to and I NEVER listen. Comes from being old and cynical.

Maybe they'll set up Skye to get revenge against Whitehall. Daddy wants to do it but ultimately Skye might.

Has daddy killed innocents or good people or only Hydra?

My guess is that Ward is going to take out Whitehall to become the new leader of the local Hydra branch. After all, he already took out Whitehall's second, even though Whitehall doesn't know it yet.

I liked the reveal about Skye's Father vs Whitehall, so I am hoping that he will take out Whitehall now that Ward is there as an understudy (and won't take up more story time to demonstrate appropriate evilness and competence).

And if Sunil Bakshi happens to come back...well Ward did promise him a face to face with Coulson, if he complains Ward will simply show him his mistake in not taking proper advantage of the situation.

Whitehall isn't easy to kill and has followers, if he "dies" he might not be dead for more than a season, unless Dr. Irate somehow makes certain he's dead. Hydra is keeping Dr. Irate on a short leash, I wonder if Whitehall knows his connection to Sky's mom, I'll bet Ward does...

I wonder how Agent 33 is doing? Shouldn't they rescue her or something.

Cheers

That's the key. Otherwise it's like saying Downton Abby is badly written because it lacks good action scenes (or maybe it does have them, I've never actually watched it but it was the first show that came into my mind that seemed like a total character piece...). I've actually been pretty happy with the fairly limited character development they've gone into considering it's a comic book show. It seems to me that they've made a definite effort to not have them all be complete cardboard cut outs even though that's clearly not the focus of the show.

A lot of lore in this episode. Saved it for future reference in case I missed something that will later come back to bite. For instance, anyone note when Skye's dad referenced "blue angels"? Also, nice tie-ins with Agent Carter.

Just watched Cap America 2 again and for the first time since everything went down in the show. Interesting to see everything in light of the newest revelations.

Hi,

Found this, thought some might like it...
Marvel’s Agent Carter Gets A New Trailer

Posted on November 26, 2014 by Dan Wickline
Share on Tumblr Comments

ABC has released a new trailer for Marvel’s Agent Carter. The series, based on the character of Peggy Carter played by Hayley Atwell, was introduced in Captain America: The First Avenger and has made a couple of appearances on Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD. The Agent Carter series will fill the gap between next week’s SHIELD mid-season finale and it’s return on March 3rd.
The first of 8 episodes of Agent Carter airs January 6th.
It came from here, http://www.bleedingcool.com/2014/11/...a-new-trailer/
The trailer doesn't reveal much, mostly shows Peggy kicking and hitting smart mouth guys.



Here's another link, http://www.ign.com/articles/2014/11/...t-carter-promo, it talks about the other actors, no new news but it's a recent article.


Looks like we get two more AOS eps, then a month break before Agent Carter.



Cheers,

Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD: Why Mockingbird is about to become your favourite character

In episode five of season two, Agents of SHIELD welcomed its biggest comic book character to date: Bobbi Morse, AKA Mockingbird, played by Adrianne Palicki.
She might not be a household name (yet…), but, trust me, Mockingbird is a big deal. Here’s why.
She’s an Avenger
She’s an agent of SHIELD
She’s Hawkeye’s ex-wife
She’s a genius biologist
She has an awesome costume


Cheers,

Palicki really nailed the Mockingbird role. She has just the right vibe, posture, height, athleticism for a show like this. I really hope she becomes a regular.

Strange, I don't remember her in Supernatural. Her time there must've been extremely short.
But PS: "Tyra!" always.

Good episode tonight. Nice lanyard-lol.

She was Sam's girlfriend, she died the very same way the Winchester's mother died.

Mack looked mighty powerful at the end there. If he comes back to his senses, so to speak, he will be the man.


Raina (sic?) all but said she & Skye were Inhumans, what with that remark about releasing inner potential. I love how things are moving ahead.

And they make Ming-Na Wen work overtime once more, can't Agent 33 get rid of that mask?

Mack was Hulk-like if we are talking Marvel but red eyed, I doubt he got hurt by the fall with those "new" powers.

When the season started, I was hoping his name was merely an alias. But it doesn't look like he'll be the powerful man we're looking for.
Doubtful he's dead, I just hope he doesn't remained berserkered out and returns to normal. Or mostly normal. SHIELD could use more Super powered help.

Just occurred to me where I have seen him before, the actor who plays, "Mack". He was the detective partner of someone, very late in that series run. Not sure if it was with Sipowitz in NYPD Blue or some other police drama that ended several years ago.

I've seen her face in show summaries before, seeing that she played Sam's girlfriend. Must've only been a couple episodes though. One, when she was still alive and maybe one or two more when she came back as a demon (didn't she come back as a demon?).

In Supernatural, noone stays dead for long and everyone gets to wear the black contact lenses at some point.

Great episode, the show is really hitting it's stride now.

Who is Ward? Or What's motivating Ward?

Vote if you like, pick more than one:
  • Hydra
  • Evil Shield
  • Trying to redeem his standing with Shield
  • Renegade soldier/gun for hire
  • Opportunist playing all sides, all angles
  • In love with Skye
  • Gaming with Skye
  • Killed his parents and brother
  • Planted evidence at the scene of his relatives murder implicating ______
  • Expanding his work portfolio
  • Rebuilding his retirement since recent MCU turmoil has hurt his IRA
  • Rebuilding his drop boxes
  • Other:________?

My vote:
  • Evil Shield 50% chance
  • Opportunist 100%
  • In love with Skye, 10%
  • Gaming Skye 99%, yes he could be in love with her and still gaming her, these aren't exclusive
  • Killed his family,80% but not just because he hated them
  • Planted evidence 80% I have no idea who'll be implicated but I think it will be revealing
  • Expanding his work portfolio, 100%, he's a career man
  • Rebuilding retirement 100%
  • Rebuilding drop boxes 100%

Skye has her kick ass fight scene, cool! I'm thinking she has a small to medium side agenda about going along with her abduction. Still wondering if her dad tore up the village or not.

Agent 33's mask got stuck on her face and it won't come off, I'll bet that makes bathing rather annoying. Rather broken cyborg looking. I'll bet she'll "snap out of it" and become a sleeper agent for Hydra. I wonder if Fitz and Simmons can get the broken mask off.

I wonder what side agenda Mack and Bobbi have going on. I'll bet we'll see Bobbi in an upcoming Marvel movie.

Is Victoria Hand really dead?

Cheers,

I think Ward is on his own agenda/opportunity and playing everyone except Skye who he is in love with.

Jerry. Just remember. Its not a lie . . . if you believe it. GC

No comments on the mid season finale? Holy guacamole! Things are really happening fast now! Skye/Daisy is an Inhuman! A few good one liners too. Glad to see one of the black guys survived. What a waste of Tripp's character after they tied him (his grandfather) in with Agent Carter.
