Yup.  Wait until you see it.  Unless you don't plan to see Cap at all or don't mind if the plot is spoiled.

It's gotten so good, last night was the best episode yet IMO. The synergy of tying this in with all the CA2 stuff was brilliant. That is exactly what this show should be, an extension of the films, filling in the gaps in between, etc.

I'm kinda bummed after all the twists last night though, my 2 favorite characters are now bad guys.  :(

Just so, so happy I saw AoS last week, then CA2 Friday, and then last night's episode. That was the perfect sequencing of events. The show has gotten much better over the course of this season. The kinda threw a wrench into things last night though, not sure where they will go from here. (Start working on that GotG tie-in!)

The downside of this is that having too many movie tie-ins could hurt the show because the viewer that didn't see one of the movies is in the dark... or if they saw it, they didn't see it right away.  Not everyone is a die-hard fan that will be out in the theater the first few days after the movie opens, or if they are, they have too many thing going on in life to do so.

I haven't watched the recent episode yet (it's on DVR waiting for me) and I need to go see CA2 yet... so I guess I'm good that I can hold off on any of the SHIELD episodes until I see the movie.  ;D

I just finished the episode as well and it was a great one running concurrent to CA2. I loved not knowing where allegiances stood - though at the end there was little doubt.  8)

Just watched last weeks so I haven't see yesterdays episode. I'm a little afraid to since I haven't seen CA2 yet.
Unless you are going to see the movie in the next few days I would say watch the episode as soon as possible. Things that will probably be shown in every ad for the next episode are far bigger spoilers for the show than what is revealed about the movie. I haven't seen the movie yet and I still have no idea what happens in it. Just who the enemy really is and a general sense of what condition SHIELD is in at the end. Both of which will probably also be spoiled in an ad.

Yep, in retrospect I wish I would have delayed AoS until after Cap2.

I've watched both episodes and haven't seen Cap2 yet.  The AoS episodes are actually making me want to see the movie more now to fill in the blanks.  Possibly going this weekend so I can't wait.

I agree that the episodes have gotten better over the course of the season.  Really looking forward to how this season is going to end and where things will end up.

Tuesday's episode had more twists and turns than I thought possible in 1 hour on ABC.  And I was incredibly surprised at some of the agents who turned.  Sitwell?  REALLY?!?!  I thought that guy was great.  Especially after his appearance in a couple of the Marvel shorts that were on the DVD extras.

The ending was phenomenal.  I was not expecting that.  Although I suspect that people have been judging Ward at face value, and he may be in for the long play.

Haven't seen CA2 yet since I never get to see movies that aren't kid aimed around here (PG or G only  :-\ ) . I haven't seen Ironman3 or Thor2 yet either for that reason. I will have to rent them I guess. I wish Netflix was a little faster at getting A-list movies.  Anyway, loved the show and I liked being in the dark like Coulson.  I look at it that I have a subscription to this comic book only. However, just by seeing commercials and being around the net, I knew Hydra was taking over Shield. Why else have a Red Skull figure in the CA2 toy line?


I could tell just by being alive on the net that Hydra was taking over Shield and that Ward's old boss was Hydra. Of course, were you have a Master, you must have an Apprentice. This definitely makes Ward a lot more interesting. I like that Ward is looking for his own Apprentice in Skye. Coulson's memory wipe thing makes more sense now since I think he was a Hydra agent too.

I do think the show needs more of this though:

I was a bit spoiled as to know there were 2 agents but didn't know who.  It became very obvious when Ward volunteered to escort Garrett to the Fridge due to it being personal and Hand allowing it.  Just the protocol would be against it: where is Ward's allegiance? If it's personal, would Garrett find himself gunned down (as Hand offered Ward)?  But Garrett/Ward being HYDRA makes sense as the SO can indoctrinate the junior agent slowly.  I guess Triplett must have been new with Garrett though it didn't feel that way, so you'd think his allegiance might be swayed as well.

I don't recall the % of SHEILD that was infiltrated by HYDRA, but it seemed quite significant.

Why else have a Red Skull figure in the CA2 toy line?

I think his presence is to actually just deliver a more accurate representation of Red Skull from the first film. While the first film's toy line figure is nice - it doesn't match how Red Skull was dressed at the climax of the film. The new figure fills that void nicely.

Coulson's memory wipe thing makes more sense now since I think he was a Hydra agent too.

I don't think so - at least I would like to believe that he wasn't a Hydra agent. What's making you think that he is a Hydra agent, the fact that Hand thought he was?

And I was incredibly surprised at some of the agents who turned.  Sitwell?  REALLY?!?!  I thought that guy was great.  Especially after his appearance in a couple of the Marvel shorts that were on the DVD extras.

I'm guessing you haven't seen CA2 yet. (or at least you hadn't seen it at the time you saw this week's episode of AoS)

Coulson wasn't Hydra.  The people from Hydra knew who was in Hydra.  It was only the people in SHIELD who were in the dark.
