This episode was kinda meh.
Sif also just listed a bunch of blue aliens in the Marvel Universe (Including the Kree and Frost Giants) for all the comic book fans to jizz their pants over.
And "Odin" wants Lorelei alive. I'm seeing a trend of Asgardian criminals always getting awesome sh*t whenever they say they're gonna pay for their crimes.
And honestly, the after-show scene with May made me kinda pissed. Told the show to "f*ck off". This show is teasing WAY too many seekrets and not shedding enough light on them.
Are you talking about what happened in Thor: The Dark World?... [spoilers from that movie]
As for May, and her "They know" scene. I think she's definitely talking to Nick Fury. Why Fury would care that they know that an alien has the ability to give people superhuman healing, is still unknown. Also, that alien has to be a Kree. I consider myself to have a extraordinary ability to sense when someone is trying to gloss over an important subject while talking about it. It feels like Jaimie Alexander definitely said "Kree" a little too fast while rattling off that list of aliens.
I was a little more upset that Coulson pulled the, "Don't tell Thor I'm still alive" line. It felt like it was there to distance itself from the movies. Like Whedon or Feige were saying, Let's save that for Age of Ultron or for a movie sometime down the line. Of course he could be saying that because he knows the Avengers banded together and went on to fought Loki and the Chitauri partially due to his own death. But to me, it doesn't seem like it would be a big deal to Thor. He doesn't have the same relationship with Thor than he did with Tony Stark or Cap (I'm sure Widow and Barton have to know, being high level SHIELD agents, and Banner and Coulson didn't have much screen time together). On top of that Thor is an Asgardian, stranger things happen than a person coming back to life in the other realms. So maybe he does just want to tell him, himself. Maybe to tell Thor to keep it to himself if he happens to see Stark or Rogers, so they don't get pissed at SHIELD.
But this is a good step in the direction in which everyone hoped the show would go. Bring in a couple marvel C-listers, and have them hint at things going on in the movies. I still have the big gripe that this show doesn't have enough of an episodic feel. They really need to look at the comics, not only in story, but in how they are presented to the public. You rarely get a "one shot" in an ongoing comic. You usually get three or four episodes with a single story arc, and then there might be a larger arc that lasts anywhere from 10 to 20 issues. But rarely do they do it the way they're doing it where each installment is a new story. In other words, they got it right finally with the existing Marvel characters, but need to serialize the show a lot more.
Sorry for the big post, I just chugged a bunch of coffee.
I think that was because Kree sounds more normal, while most other names sound like octo-syllabled dog medicines.
I still think it's Kree, tho.
