In Stockholm, men in creepy red masks are robbed and killed. Coulson acts like it is all a big joke. The thief is a former SHIELD agent named Amador who is being controlled by an eye-cam. Coulson is a jerk, May goes after Amador and there is eye surgery that is suggested via moist noises. This was good and dark, a nice improvement after the dire 1x02 and 1x03. What was the equation on the board? What will happen to Amador? What was done to Coulson?
“She’s a weapon.”
“He feels sorry for you, I don’t.”
