Holy spitballs. man was Daisy brutal to both that Kree AND mac. It almost made me think the 'death' we are being told about would be him...

And that Kree-hive fight. Badass to the extreme! But i was really hoping we would have seen more from the kree.. Surely they have some ranged weaponry.

And 'sparky' taking the hopeful antidote, as a test subject? Man was he stupid.

My thoughts on the ep (in no particular order):
--I liked it overall, but my one very big peeve - Hive was able to kill that Kree so easily!!! Why would Hive be afraid of the Kree when they basically didn't stand any chance against him???
--Daisy's fights were pretty brutal. I was glad they didn't go the sentimental route and have Daisy "wake up" after seeing how badly hurt Mack was. If Lincoln, Fitz and Mack were not able to get through to Daisy, I think we're supposed to understand that no one is going to be able to undo Hive's sway.
--Lincoln is kind of a mess. I wonder if he is supposed to actually recover from having his immune system destroyed.
--Daisy is no longer concerned with helping SHIELD understand (and hoping to turn them into Inhumans). Now if SHIELD gets in the way, it looks like she will just take them out. I'd be very sad if the agent who dies is killed by Daisy.
--I know I'm not the only one who is sick and tired of the Fallen Agent promos and "one agent will die" reminders. Their plan was to have that go on for a month? It's been 2 weeks and it's seriously annoying already. But, there's only 2 weeks/3 episodes left - one next week and then two eps on May 17 - so I guess we don't have to wait too much longer.
--I can't believe that the little bit of GH325 in Daisy's blood is going to be what makes these renewed experiments succeed! Actually, what would really be interesting is if the new Inhumans that are created end up being immune to Hive because they aren't being created the same way the original Inhumans were created - unfiltered Kree blood.
--I don't want to speculate about which agent is supposed to die. There are characters that I would accept (not be happy about, but accept) and characters that I absolutely wouldn't accept - but I'm keeping those lists to myself. I can't really wrap my mind around how the writers are going to make this happen without really upsetting/annoying the fans.

Good point on Lincoln, being a mess since his immune sustem is messed up. Is it permanent or temporary??
And on the GH238, i also can't see how that little vial's worth she had in her system would even be 'pure enough' after all this time IN her system, being filtered through her heart, kidneys etc, to work..

I'm not sure if I'll be more upset if the agent to die is someone like Mac, Fitz or Simmons, or if I'll be more pissed off if after all the hype it's one of the minor players they've introduced recently.

This was another good episode. The only thing I remember feeling was a bit hard to understand was why the SHIELD Agents only decided to try to take shot at HIVE after he killed the Kree. Surely the best opportunity was during the fight? Even if their weapons couldn't do it, they might have distracted the him long enough for the Kree to finish him off.

IMO i would be MORE irked it was one of those lesser people.. Cause of how they have been hyping that its a 'team member', than if it WAS a core team member.. Getting our anticipation up like that, then letting us down so whimppy.

I agree. BUT maybe May thought if they did interfere, the Kree might have turned on THEM..

Even if he turned out to have hostile intentions towards them, he probably wouldn't have stopped fighting Hive to attack them.

True... Though one thing i would also like to know. Would any of the OTHER kree have detected that message sent out??

I think the implication was the the signal was designed specifically to only attract those two individual Kree.

Maybe, but didn't the other Kree already know of the Inhumans still being around after that one came to earth after Skye in S2?

They wiped that guys memory he was the only one that saw that the obelisk was set off.

Why did they think conventional weapons would work on Hive honestly that is probably the single dumbest thing I have seen them do.

I actually thought that big weapon they were gonna use on him, was something akin to what Phil had which he was gonna use on Loki in the first avengers.. Not just a piddy grenade launcher (and why was the explosion so wimpy???)

I agree....that's the first thing I thought of when the agent had the big gun...some new fancy weapon, or maybe something like the weapon that Phil used on Bill Paxton back at the end of the first season. Why they thought that a little grenade launcher who stop Hive, I don't know. They know how powerful Hive is.

Maybe they didn't realize how quick his regeneration is??

I feel like this assault on Hive's town would've been exactly the type of situation they would've called the Avengers in on, just like Coulson indicated with the Avengers 2 crossover last season. Considering until Civil War, they've been operating on an as-needed basis. A assault on superhumans, and specifically Inhumans who Hive can control, would make the Avengers immune.

You would think that. Perhaps they were all licking their wounds from Civil war!

At a guess I'd think that maybe he didn't feel he had the intel to risk the Avengers at that point. He couldn't guarentee what they'd be walking into. Daisy in particular is a pretty big threat to them.

I would love to see her go against cap or widow!

I think this happens before Civil War. The crossover is this week's episode.

I really think that AOS are making the Avengers look bad. While the Avengers are busy fighting their own demons and each other and enemies of their own creation, SHIELD is the group actually saving the world from enemies that are not of their own creation.

They made a mistake in making these movies linked to the show.

In a way that's true, but didn't Shield in essence create the hydra problem by NO properly vetting their people/?

I guess you can say that. But how much can they be faulted for being infiltrated?

Yeah it is pretty funny how this is actually the type of problem you'd want to call in the Avengers for, and not the actual problem they dealt with in their own movie. This problem could probably be solved pretty quickly if Thor just took 60 seconds out of his day to fly Hive into space or something.

Heck could Hive's disolving ability Work on Thor, hulk or even capt?? Could he take capt over??

His mind control only works on Inhumans. Cap he could probably kill, but Thor and Hulk have super-durability so, at the very least, I'd say his parasites would not be able to eat them before he was disabled.

Also makes me wonder.. How nasty hive would get hurt if say IM released his chest blast on his butt..

It would likely hurt him a whole hell of a lot but it certainly wouldn't do much more than tick him off.

A single blast probably wouldn't kill him, but assuming that a warhead on a plane in space is enough to kill him, Iron Man probably would be able to finish him off without too much trouble.
