I was also impressed that they didn't get her right into another relationship right away. 

Yeah.  It's apparent she still loves Steve.  But in the end, she realizes that he is gone and let's him go (pouring his blood into the East River)... setting up for possibly something with Sousa in Season 2.

I thought it was great.  My wife LOVED it.  When it ended she said she's going to miss it.  I'm really hoping for a second season.

I was surprised to read that so far ABC has yet to renew Agent Carter for a second season.  But in the ratings it actually did slightly better than Agents of SHIELD.

The "demo" ratings weren't quite as good, but overall viewership was even.  I expect they'd announce season 2 when they announce SHIELD.

Well, they have been promoting the hell out of the second half of this season of Agents of SHIELD.  I'm hoping that the show picks up in the second half like we saw last year.  And I'm especially hoping that we're going to see some sort of tie-in with Avengers - Age of Ultron.

So Rayna evolved into the chick from "Nightbreed"?

Funny I don't recall any Inhumans with thorns growing out of them. And the only one who could teleport was Lockjaw. And they all had eyes.

So WTF?

I liked seeing Fred "Hunter" Dryer (where was DeeDee?) back on TV for five more minutes. And the play against Hydra was pretty enjoyable, if a bit silly. Not liking the subterfuge with Fury's toolbox though. Haven't we had enough "mole on the team" BS to put up with already? It's played out.

I also liked Fitz giving fanboys the world over a stiffy when he told Skye her heartbeat was "inhuman" - so coy, you writers!

I don't feel like I really missed this show all that much after all. At least we get SIF next week.

The comic book Inhumans (who we presume live on the other side of the moon) aren't who the SHIELD humans turn into.  I don't think all the powered individuals we'll see are based on characters from the comics.  Seems like they have some creative freedom on that front.

So last night's reveal was pretty big.  I was certain Mockingbird and Mac were working for Talbot.  But it turned out they're working for the "real" SHIELD.  Pretty clever way, IMO, to have SHIELD as a viable player in Age of Ultron (and a legitimate "secret" agency to boot).  Not looking forward to seeing how the TV squad reacts when they find out they've been a decoy for the past year.

Was that Edward James Olmos as the Director? Nice get.

It seems to me that the "real" SHIELD is whoever Fury bequeathed the legacy to, and that was clearly Coulson. What have these other schmoes been doing the past 6 months? Certainly not fighting Hydra or saving the world like Coulson's team.

Posers!

So the "real" SHIELD was on a decommissioned Battlestar during the last six months as Hydra was blowing up most of the fake SHIELD. Now the "real" SHIELD and it's old Battlestar are humanities only hope against Ultron and his army of robots as they are chased across the galaxy hoping to meet up with the Guardians of the Galaxy and their Battlestar. Skye will learn to be a great fighter pilot and with the help of Groot defeat Ultron and Hydra and find a new world for humanity.

Why is it ever since "The Fringe" Kirk Acevedo is always cast as an ahole?  :(

That was a terribly weak backstory for the other SHIELD too. Transparency really? Maybe Hunter should have reminded those dopes that if Coulson hadn't found and flooded the city that Hydra would have taken it over. Or asked them WTF they were doing when Whitehall and HYDRA were kicking ass and taking names across the globe the past few months.

Time for Fury to pop back up and collectively bitch-slap those morons.

Plus, Coulson basically planted the seed that took out several Hydra heads a few episodes ago  (after Whitehall's death).
