Great start to a new season. I loved the stuff with Skye and Mac. I also enjoyed Coulson's arm and of course the scene where Fitz is totally badass. And lastly the scene with Fitz breaking down was well done and :(.

OK.. What gives here. Last season on 'watch abc.com', i was able to catch episodes the NIGHT after they aired, if i couldn't catch them live. Now all i am getting is the intro 5 mins..??

Well, they certainly proved that Lash can take a lashing. Full clip of bullets at close range and SKye and Lincoln's attacks? I hope they do something with Ward to make him interesting quickly. He was so pointless all of last season.

BTW, did anyone else notice the fire axe hanging in Coulson's office? Suprised he'd keep that...

I was more surprised they still had his hand in a case in the lab.

Poor Fitz. :( I'm right there with him. I want my Simmons back.

There needs to be some more ridiculous gritty relationship subplots again. Sure we've got Bobbi/Hunter and brooding Fitz/Simmons. But, let's stretch it even more. Fitz/Simmons/Coulson love triangle or May's unrequited lust for Patton Oswalt.

Heck now i have been able to catch it (guess i should have waited a few more hours), i am surprised other than Hunter's search for ward, he was not even in this ep..

Loved "lash"s look.. though i wonder is that what Raina might have eventually turned into.
Liked the boats/chamber.. Though why does "as per that gal in charge", everyone still think Shield is dead??

Big peave is the whole line of "we got to contain/eliminate them" Sounds rather genocidal to me.

He really acted that part well.. Also loved his trick on those Arabs when he got the scroll.

The president still referenced SHIELD dropping airships over the capital, pointing to their big fallout as the last thing they did. They were operating covertly all last season, though toward the end Talbot seemed to give them some leeway. I don't think this was in any official manner though.

In Age of Ultron, even Fury acknowledged he wasn't director of anything anymore. Then again, the Avengers facility in Antman seemed to be a fully functional SHEILD site. Hopefully they reconcile all this soon.

One big question I had was why Lash was after Lincoln? He went through the proper traditional Terrigenesis way before the fish oil Inhumans started popping up.

I'm was worried that it would happen to me. I got lucky Tuesday that the family that I babysit for didn't need me past 8:00 so I got home in time. I think hulu says it'll have the episode 8 days after it airs, which sucks but at least they'll have it.

I really enjoyed the episode. My random thoughts:
--Rosalind is a terrific adversary for Coulson - she can really hold her own. I can't wait to see more of their interaction.
--Fitz was AMAZING in this ep! From beginning to end, an awesome performance. IAIN DE CAESTECKER DESERVES ALL THE PRIZES!!!
--I like the pairing of Daisy and Mack. They are sort of the odd couple - she is certainly more sympathetic towards the Inhumans while Mack is more focused on how containing the problem - bringing them in to make sure they don't get hurt or don't hurt anyone else.
--Coulson's hand is in a glass box in the lab and he has the axe hanging on his wall in his office. I don't know why I love that, but I do!
--Coulson was telling Fitz how they had to move on and we finally get the one mention of May in the episode: she went on vacation and never came back, so he lost his right hand, too. It doesn't make up for not having May in the episode, but I would have been more pissed if they didn't acknowledge her at all in the season premiere.
--Coulson and Hunter are another fun pairing.
--I like Bobbi as a character. I like Hunter as a character. I'm not very enthused about them as a couple. I liked their bickering when she first joined the team. I liked how you could see how much they cared about each other when Hunter was frantic to find Bobbi and she was desperate to keep Hunter from getting killed rescuing her. But I'm not interested in them as a couple now - fighting or not. I don't understand what's supposed to be happening with their characters - are they getting their own show? If their goal is to go after Ward/Hydra, it seems strange for them to be on a separate show when Ward is supposedly the main baddie (or one of them) on AoS.
--Really liked the character of Joey. A GAY CHARACTER ON A MARVEL SERIES!!! I hope we see a little bit more of him. I know some people aren't crazy about using the parallel of being gay to being Inhuman (too much like the mutants). You know what? There actually are people who aren't big into X-men (myself included) and don't compare everything Inhuman to mutant. The fact is that Joey knows what it's like to have a secret and he was glad that he finally got it out in the open and could be himself. It's sad that he now has a new secret - one that he really can't be open with due to the state of the world.
--It will be interesting to see how Lincoln fits in with the team. (It seems obvious he will have to join them now that his powers have been discovered. And he probably wouldn't fare well all by himself while Lash is after him, too.) Not that I didn't like Lincoln last year, but I find him more interesting now that we don't know exactly how he feels about everything. He knows he was fed lies by Jiaying. Now that he has been "outed" as Inhuman, he probably doesn't know what to do or who to trust.
--JEMMA!!! I can't wait to find out what's been happening to her. I really hope it doesn't take too long for her to return to the team.
--#WhereisAgentMay. She's in the promo for the next ep, but if there is even one more episode without May in it, I will scream bloody murder.

That's all I can think of at the moment. A great ep that only falls short of a perfect score because there's no Melinda May in it.

Maybe he is one who hunts down fellow inhumans to sap their power??

Is it just me or has Daisy grown up a bit between seasons?

Not sure if you are being facetious or not. Taking your question as a serious one - she seems to have more responsibility now - basically in charge of the "welcome wagon" - reaching out to In humans. If you're talking about the tank top which made her look more "womanly" - eh. I watched a reaction vid to the episode and listened to another podcast about the episode - all the guys could talk about were Daisy's boobs. Whatever. Hey - I'm glad for the people who appreciate her physical attributes, but I prefer to listen to podcasts that talk about the characters and story...not that we're seeing a bit more skin on Daisy.

Kinda, I meant in a physical way, her outfit is more revealing/grown up and she appears, oh how can I say without coming across as a wierdo, more top heavy (like she has had a boob job off season, perhaps why that's why the podcasts were focusing on the same thing).

Not complaining, just wondering if anybody else had noticed or it was just me lol.

I don't think it was a boob job. I think they were strategically placed to stand out more.

I thought the episode was a decent starter for the new season. Not great. I have to be honest, after watching Daredevil I feel that this show should be WAY better than it is. I am not saying I dislike it, just that Daredevil may have set a new standard for how I look at this show.

- Still see no purpose for Hunter. (I want Trip back.)
- Still hate all the Hunter/Bobbi stuff.
- I thought Bobbi was okay.
- Love the Daisy/ Mac team.
- I like the more serious Fitz.
- So many questions need to be answered quickly.

I disagree. Daredevil is a completely different endeavour to SHIELD. I like Daredevil, but I also love SHIELD just the way it is.

Daredevil is on a completely different platform compared SHIELD. Being on Netflix, Daredevil is similar to a preminium TV. A big one is that Daredevil doesn't have time constraints like SHIELD does

Well her shirts she was wearing in S1 and 2, didn't really seem to be form fitting, enough to show her figure properly.. This suit on the other hand is.

I think I said it before - I like Bobbi and Hunter individually, but not as much as the other characters and I'm not interested in them as a couple. Can we ditch them and not have any more May-less episodes???

Only 7 hours and 33 minutes until I get my Melinda May fix. :)
