Dun, dun, dun, dunnnnnn......
I've been overwhelmed by revelations this week and well, every other week but this episode in particular gave Skye's character so much unnerving perspective as her Dad informs Coulson that Skye isn't even her real name which makes me wonder whether Skye herself doesn't even have any idea of who she really is. That for me makes the whole series even more exciting and thrilling.
As the team delve into Daniel Whitehall's past they discover that somehow he has managed to keep himself looking youthful even though he is an old man.
I think we may have seen Skye's mother for the first time; savagely covered in her own blood due to Whitehall's experiments. There are so many questions being raised it's almost too much.
Nah, I love that we get to see more and more about the character's history and find things out about them that even they don't know. So Skye's father is out for revenge on Mr. Whitehall but then why is he so angry at Shield; he says they took his daughter from them but she kind of stumbled upon them and Coulson recruited for because she had great computer hacking skills. Clearly, there's something not right with this guy.
Now I cannot forget the beast that is Ward; I knew when he put his arm round his brother and smiled, that something brutal was going to happen.
Subtly, towards the end we are told that Ward has killed his brother for supposedly putting disturbing thoughts into his head but I think that was probably down to thier parents who tortured them.
Another fragmented and dark layer that has been let loose amongst the search for this city that holds some great power.
Something is building, and whatever it is it looks to be monumentous in scale! Take cover team, you're going to need it!
