Agents of Shield S.O.S Part 2 review

As the story flows from a raging war between Shield and the inhumans to thousands of people who will soon become one of the enhanced power people, due to the terrigan crystals becoming a part of fish oils tablets, season two's finale has certainly revealed some huge character developments; Skye's relationship with her father has definitely been one of the most evolving but touching in an odd way. 
As Cal describes it to himself- his love for his family had sent him mad as well as Juinang whose motives for starting the war, were in her eyes justified because for some twisted reason she thinks that Shield want to cause harm to her people even though it was Hydra who had experimented on her and attacked her people.
In hindsight, I have found her to be a far more interesting and complex character in terms of her reasons and motivations for her actions then Ward ever brought. His complexity has only been one of manipulation and blame.
Chunks of the fight scenes were incredibly enthralling to watch as the camera slowed down the punches and flips to really make every move of the characters count almost like a dance even.
Linking to this, Skye has evolved into such a compassionate and brave agent and inhuman who has been so fascinating to watch her grow and deal with her parents and put the protection of strangers first all culminating into her having to even try and terminate her own mother.
Every character has been given a thread that has been resolved into a nice little ribbon that has finally been knotted tightly together ready to be pulled a part.
Just as I was cheering for Simmons and Fitz to go to dinner, she gets sucked into the Kree Stone. What a heart tearing moment when your favourite character gets pulled into this unknown alien artefact, gone without a scuffle.
May is finally starting to realise that Shield isn't her life and that she needs to explore it which I think will be good for her because then maybe she can bring a new perspective on why she is a part of Shield in the first place.
The build up of where the this team has come to and how the battle with the inhumans has led them into a new direction is something I am very much jumping up and down for.
