Coulson is a dreadful Director. Mockingbird exaggerates her aura. TPTB proffer banality. Hunter is dumb. Coulson lies and issues mocking rebuttals. There are boring flashbacks, CGI and Ward shaves. Skye does pratfalling. May is a boisterous ass. Tripp won’t shut up with his expressions of indelicate opinion. This episode had no adequacy at all. Coulson is disruptive, May plans murder, the sigils are not an evocative element and Coulson shows no contrition for his awful choices.
Coulson should not be Director, Ward gets away again and leaves peace offerings. Tripp has no modest eloquence, Coulson’s carving compulsion is suddenly gone and there is speechifying. This was crappy, outside the truth and with a surfeit of fistfights, curses of hatreds, fierce enemies and human beings marooned in inhumanity. The big reveal isn’t one.
