(SPOILER) Watch the first four minutes of this week's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, "T.A.H.I.T.I.". Picking up right where the last one left off, spoiler tag for those who don't want to know anything about what shape Skye's in as we rejoin the action.

I may have sprained a pinky typing all those caps and dots.

Ohh..Intriguing. I wonder if this will mean Ron Glass appearing again?

(Thanks for the alternate link by the way. I'm using an old version of adobe flash, because of problems the new version 12 causes my internet connection, so a lot of sites videos refuse to play for me. Thus the youtube link was very much appreciated!)

Jas: I recommend deleting Flash. Flash is a security risk anyway, but using an old version is inviting exploits. Youtube, Vimeo and a lot of other sites work fine without Flash (Youtube with its HTML5 mode), for other sites a have Chrome installed beside my main browser, which comes with its own sandboxed Flash-plugin. (Sorry for OT)

Thanks for the tech tip Udo. I had been considering that, and you've now given me an additional reason to do so!
Agent May feels most comfortable expressing her emotions with punching?
I'll float a theory, especially considering this "it's all tied together" hashtag...the tech we saw bring Coulson back and will see bring Skye back will be bringing an old character (won't mention who for those who don't know the comic backstory) back as the Winter Soldier in the upcoming Cap sequel.
Wow! Just... wow! That's the way to open up an episode. They really made me care about this characters and everything is getting on place. For what? Who knows, but I've been truly amazed by the tension they managed to put in 4 minutes of episode. Hope they get a 2nd season.
Emotionally hooked? Yes!
I have to say, seeing Agent May wallop on Quinn was rather gratifying.

(Still no idea if it is coming back to Australian TV. I believe it was rating quite well for Seven, so I don't know what the deal is.)
And my chance to float my latest theory about why the clairvoyant manipulated Skye to the brink of death, and it has nothing to do with activating her yet to be determined powers. The one thing we know the clairvoyant hasn't been able to "see" with his own powers and wants to know is how Coulson was brought back from death. He didn't succeed in getting that information from Coulson by force or by seduction, so he set up a situation where Coulson will willingly allow the technology to be used again to save Skye. That's why he had Quinn shoot Skye at close range, but didn't have Mike engage with SHIELD when they showed up.

You have to wonder just what Quinn is getting from the clairvoyant given that he was inevitably going to end up in SHIELD hands, and if May's temper gets just a little bit the better of her, she's likely to tear Quinn to pieces bit by bloody bit, and I don't mean that figuratively. And you know Coulson would cover for her. If Skye dies, Quinn faces a painful death.
