On the plane with Garrett, Ward inserts a magazine into his pistol and racks the slide back, and it stays back; he has to hit the slide release to allow the slide forwards again. This only happens with an empty magazine, yet he is able to fire the pistol afterwards. See more »


John Garrett: I'll say it again. Best bet to save her - use the ventilation system to get above the sit room. Drop down using Fitz's sweet, little mouse hole, and put two bullets through Victoria Hand's heart.
Leo Fitz: Yeah, it's an option, sir.

This episode is absolutely the best by far. So many twists. A few of the twists are obvious, while others slowly come to light. By the end of the episode, my heart was racing and I had no idea who to trust.

I noticed another person mentioned watching Captain America 2 first. However, I did not and was able to follow this along well. Perhaps it just gives you more background, though.

I highly recommend this show, and this episode is one to not miss! If you have enjoyed the rest of the show, or are uncertain if you will continue watching, this episode should help make your decision. It's one you will love or hate.
