This is a fantastic episode in terms of team dynamic. There are so many great moments. Fitzsimmons and Skye being stuck in the van is one of them. Previous episodes have featured a very disjointed team. They were all just thrown together in the pilot, and it shows. Finally everyone has been around each other enough that there is more of a friendship that comes through. Plus there is a mix up of who is paired with who. Fitz and Simmons are always paired together. I mean hello, they are referred to as Fitzsimmons. This time they spend some time with Skye, and then the end features a great scene between Fitz and Ward. There is finally a team dynamic that is coming across, which is always one of the best parts of a Joss Whedon show. Did you love all the team scenes in this episode?
There is such potential with bringing in someone that Coulson knows, but unfortunately, it falls flat. Most of the time when a show brings in someone that has a personal connection to a character, there are flashbacks or something that shows at their past relationship. There isn’t really anything like that; there isn’t any bonding or reminiscing on the past.The only good thing that Akela Amador brings to this episode in terms of her past with Coulson is that she gives viewers more evidence that something is not right with Coulson. She comments that things are different with Coulson, and she brings it up to Melinda. What did you think of Coulson and Akela’s relationship?
Coulson and Skye’s relationship really grows in this episode. It is great to see their relationship, especially as they grow more familiar with one another. They definitely have one of the best relationships on the show. Coulson and Melinda have a good relationship as well, but viewers get to watch Skye and Coulson’s relationship grow. Melinda and Coulson have a strong relationship, but it’s more in the background as compared to Coulson and Skye. Does that make sense?
