So it was Lincoln who buys it.  It wasn't shocking enough or an electrifying sacrifice for me to be sad about.  I expected someone from the original team, though I guess Brett Dalton will no longer be on the show, even though his character died and was reborn.  Maybe I should be sad for him?

Plus, Agent Carter is cancelled as is Most Wanted (never got off the ground), so for me losing Hunter and Bobbi tugged at the heart strings more than this death did.

The spin-off with Bobby and Hunter was axed? Damn. They need to get them back on the regular show now. I miss those two. Not too sad about Agent Carter, it ended at a good place and had become something of an effort to watch anyway, IMHO.

Last night's finale was good. They did a nice job keeping you guessing who was going to buy it right up until the end. I was very nervous whenever FitzSimmons were on screen. (Would have been nice to see a 6 months later cutaway to them in the Seychelles at the end there, but whateves)

The death itself was sort of meh to me, but I guess they are going to use it to jack up Daisy's character for awhile now.

I didn't fully grasp either ending. Coulson is an agent now and no longer the Director? Who's the Director? Hoping this is just a temporary thing until they hunt down Daisy. And maybe they should have had the fast chick follow her? Just sayin...

I figured they would bring the Mad Scientist dude into the fold, but WTF was that at the very end? Did we just see Jocasta? Or something else???

That finale was intense.  Guessing right until the end on who bites it (I figured it out when SPOILERS Lincoln grabbed Daisy and they didn't show her necklace again  /SPOILERS).  I thought when Mac hugged Daisy, that was probably the most powerful moment of the entire series.

I'm also totally confused by the epilogues.  Daisy becomes Robin Hood - that's easy enough.  But the rest of the threads - total mystery.

I'm worried we'll still see Ward again.  There's the matter of that Kree artifact he dug up - the "only thing" that can destroy him.  That seems like a pretty major plot point to just leave out there hanging.  I don't think we were ever told what happened to it.

There was an article that came out right after the episode where Jed Whedon wouldn't comment on whether Ward would be back or not.  I'm with you that I think he somehow shows up again.  I just hope for our sake it's in flashbacks or something like that.  I just grew really tired of seeing him after Season 1.

I'm at least a couple of weeks behind on AoS on my DVR.  But I did see that the Kree are in play with this storyline.  I can't help but think that the show and the MCU are both moving towards involving the Kree in a bigger way.  The drug/treatment that brought Coulson back was made from research/materials from that Kree corpse.  Ronan the Accuser, from Guardians of the Galaxy was Kree as well.  They're showing up on Agents of SHIELD again, it would seem.  It leads me to think that they might be involved in GOTG2 as well, and might also be involved in the story for the Captain Marvel movie that's in development.

I thought about that too, but came up with a good explanation. That Kree artifact was actually built into the warhead and was part of the activation system through which the terrigen gas or whatever would be dispersed. IE: the technology was a necessary component to facilitate the re-creation of the experiment that created HIVE. So it did end up killing him really.

I thought the close up reveal of Hive's true face with the Coulson hologram was awesome too. I'm sure it wasn't cheap to pull off.
