I'm not thinking of it that way. I just see it as a marketing gimmick just like making them all really young.

The finale was absolutely awesome.  I had a total "Pulp Fiction back-seat gunshot" reaction to the axe strike.  And at so many instances there was the tension that nobody was safe.  Three or four times I thought major characters had been killed.  Edge-of-your-seat, compelling stuff.  I was really impressed.

My wife commented it was "movie-like" it was of such high quality.  They've come a long way.

I'm guessing the fish oil pills are a non-lethal way for Inhumans to arise across the globe.

I enjoyed the entire season.  I thought it was suppose to be a cliffhanger but they tied up most of the loose ends. I wonder if Clouson is getting a Luke Skywalker hand or something like the Winter Soldier's. Chloe Bennet has gotten to be a better actress in this season. She had more to work with.  I still love Adrianne Palicki. She definitely needs to stick around.  Someone really needs to kill Grant. I like how May tricked Grant into killing Agent 33. She was getting annoying.

I thought it was terrific too...except for the last 5 minutes where there was some kind of bizarre commercial interruption that pre-empted the show. I'll have to go back and watch it On Demand now. It cut back right during the scene when Ward was jacking up that Hydra guy.

Anyway, great stuff. Glad they culled the herd a bit, getting to be too many characters on this show. Super happy to see Raina gone especially, I really disliked her character. I didn't have the same antipathy towards Gordon and Skye's mom, but they needed to go too.

Totally agree about the imminent danger...I thought for sure Bobbi was going to buy it. And I was convinced Mack was going to touch one of the crystals and turn into an Inhuman, after all his grousing about aliens. ("No-Eyes" - LOL)

Great that the offed Kara, even better that dipsh*t Ward did it. I guess it would have been too much to ask to see his tired ass put down finally too. Maybe next season. God, I hate that ahole.

As soon as they intimated a long-awaited Fitzsimmons hook-up, I knew one of them would get iced somehow. Sucks, I am a Fitzsimmons 'shipper and I want them to hook up.

Also awesome to see Cal as Mr Hyde finally. That was pretty cool. Nice of them to go Tahiti on his ass.

I don't know what to make of the fish oil thing. Since when are Terrigen crystals water soluble anyway?

I was disappointed with Mr. Hyde. I was expecting something along the lines of the Hulk not Kyle with even more messed up hair and neck veins. Do you think they have cherry pie in Tahiti?

A very solid way to end season 2.  In fact up until last week I thought that Jaiying had somewhat benevolent intentions.  At least until she killed Gonzalez!  I got the sense that Rayna was able to redeem herself.  And personally?  I'm not completely certain that she's dead.  All in all I think this episode arc has done a lot to develop the Inhumans in the MCU in the leadup to their movie.  I'm just curious if Skye will end up crossing over into that project.

The fight for the control of the Illiad was some pretty good stuff.  Multiple Girl was pretty badass, but it was cool to see that there was a way to take out all of the copies by neutralizing the prime Multiple girl.  And the fight for the Kree artifact between Mac, Coulson, Fitz and Gordon?  That was pretty awesome.  But when Mac lopped off Coulson's arm?  That was definitely shocking, but it was also a great bookend.  After all, the season began with Lucy Lawless's character touching a Diviner and cutting off her own arm in an attempt to survive.  She didn't, but Mac's actions were so decisive that he wound up saving Coulson's life.

The Ward/Agent 33 arc came to a fitting end.  33 was clearly damaged and beyond any sort of salvation.  And Ward is just all sorts of messed up.  I was glad to see Bobbie beat the hell out of both of them... at least until Ward broke her leg.  The fact that Bobbie would also sacrifice herself rather than letting Hunter get shot really showed some real heart for her character.  I thought Bobbie was a little one dimensional at the beginning of the season, and Hunter was too.  But they really seem to have developed into good characters for the show.

The last few things in the episode left you wondering where things are going.  May seems to have turned a corner.  I think she's finally come to terms with what happened in Bahrain.  And I get the sense that she may be on the verge of rekindling her marriage.  Coulson?  I think he may wind up with a Deathlok type of arm.  Ward as the new leader of HYDRA?  Seriously?  I wonder where that may go.  But the biggest shock of all had to be Simmons being sucked into the Kree artifact.  That was an even bigger WHOA moment than what happened to Coulson.  It certainly left me wondering if Simmons will actually become Captain Marvel.
