Everybody needs a gif of a happy Natasha!
When May and Coulson were having the “I care about you” shouting scene May tells Coulson SHE assembled the team. In the first ep and throughout the series Coulson has been pretty sure about the fact he picked the team. So it looks like May had an active hand in his operation— an operation where they can erase and replace memories meaning they obviously planted the thought that Coulson had assembled his whole team. Maybe his memories of May are somehow distorted too? It seems May really really cares for him but is it because of something Coulson can remember?
It is likely Maria Hill is in on this with Fury, which is why in the first ep she was seeming to test him— asking about Tahiti and questioning his choice in team mates to check if he was definitely sure he picked the team and if his Tahiti trigger worked.
EDIT: IF MAY IS PART OF FURY’S RESISTANCE DOES THIS MEAN SHE KNOWS ABOUT SKYE TOO AND THATS WHY SHE WANTS TO KNOW FIRST ABOUT SKYE’S BLOODWORK BECAUSE THAT WAY SHE CAN HIDE IT FROM EVERYONE ELSE???!!!!
I actually feel like being that dork that reads the recaps for Winter Soldier and rewatches the past 2 or 3 episodes of SHIELD and writes a fucking essay about it and the end prediction
OK just saw the end of AoS and I have calmed down. Holy crap Ward what the fuck BUT I just have this like Jon Snow and Qhorin Halfhand feelings about this like double, triple, quadruple agents. Also I guess I am happy for skyeward shippers, they got their kiss but I am…
I absolutely love Ward being layered, it’ll give his usual naysayers something to talk about!
