Well, I guess they could only maintain their streak of good episodes for so long. Last night was terrible IMO. The whole thing with the elder Ward seemed really rushed and would have played out better had they introduced him earlier. The plotline in Okinawa and Belgium made no sense.
But worst of all, for a show that has been pretty clever and unpredictable to this point in the season, the gratuitous and completely obvious escape of Ward. How on earth do you not sedate him for transport, or maybe even keep the bag over his head after he gets in the truck? That seemed like an incredibly lax detail for such a dangerous prisoner transport. And wouldn't the Senator have held off on th press conference until AFTER his brother was in custody? The whole thing was just asinine.
The only thing I hope is that this was perhaps part of some larger angle where they let him go purposely to track him back to Skye's dad or Whitehall or something. Otherwise this was just bad writing.
Really getting sick of Simmons too. What is so hard about telling Fitz you left because you thought you were hindering his recovery? Instead you just let him imagine any number of other hurtful possibilities...nice. Grow up and tell him you only like him as a friend or whatever, just seems cruel to keep dancing around it.
