@joemurphy and I want you to stop what you're doing and fucking watch SHIELD already and here are some compelling reasons why:
  1. FitzSimmons
    C09e73f3 baad 4352 a719 320f75ee5d63
    Not one person! Two people! Science stuff! Witty banter! Unacknowledged love! Very here for them
  2. Skye's new season 3 look
    C5d8487b c878 43f5 b999 0723a2ba6b95
    V about this
  3. Lincoln's face
    Dab90168 b77d 472a 9732 b8cb160e6fda
    Unnggffdgghhggg what, how
  4. Melinda May's makeup and all black everything
    60be4639 e542 4aaa a5cd 66d65a6220ae
    Yes, Ming-Na Wen, yesssssss BRING IT (the Cavalry, takin out dozens of mooks and still lookin fly af)
  5. Melinda May's mighty glare
    25c3e45f 32b0 4e42 ba57 e64d77f5ae2e
    How does she say so much without saying anything at all??? We may never know
  6. Jemma's eyebrows
    0f7d6e0e a898 425f babd ec3f27a247e6
    I don't understand it either but they're perfect
  7. Mack and Fitz
    Babbc25b 9143 4615 be1a 32d0a48234d6
    Best friendship and dynamic on the show. True bro love here and it is so sweet and they just have each other's backs and it is the best
  8. Coulson's dad jokes
    D5d22071 8fea 44df 8538 e666bcccf33d
    Is there anyone who makes worse jokes than Phil Coulson? Bless his heart, he tries so hard. Do you think he knows? Let's not say anything.
  9. Fitz's stutter
    1432cf6f 831e 4e91 b35b 19b77737619a
    Fitz calls himself "damaged" after what Ward does and it is heartbreaking to see him try to overcome the changes Ward wrought in him.
  10. ...just everything about Fitz
    8836e34e cea1 4d53 9b19 31d66c7b55d7
    Fitz is my favorite he is the best I am here for him all day omg FITZ my heart
  11. PTSD
    70c8ee15 3a52 4223 8928 85602c58cb49
    Bobbi after Ward. Skye after Ward. FITZ after Ward. Ward fucks people up so badly they remind me of Kilgrave's victims on Jessica Jones. But they don't snap right back to a full recovery. One and a half seasons later, Fitz is still struggling to overcome what Ward did to him. I have ultra respect for this show and how it shows people living with their PTSD. I mean just look at May!!! What happened in Bahrain changed her completely and she fights every day to be strong enough.
  12. Mack and Skye
    02df0e1c 7e0d 4517 9a56 502b1e0792ac
    They have so much respect for each other and have the kind of camaraderie you only get from heading into battle with someone over and over. They trust each other completely. Plus did you see that fist bump in the last ep? Ugh
  13. Conspiracy theories are fully embraced here
    3692a6e3 6a27 4c26 a8bb 4aaf655737ce
  14. Familiar faces from the Whedonverse
    51c0b134 2e39 4fcd 8131 5f78e7b61c85
    Sierra from Dollhouse! Shepherd Book! Amy Acker! I love how much they pop up in Marvel shit
  15. Transformation
    1f5ea3f1 9fb4 4555 8aca f5559c24823e
    Honesty the main theme of this show. People trying to figure out their new selves and learning to move forward after everything changes
  16. Agent Triplett sweet talkin Simmons
    11e53d6c 883e 4fff a282 5343f1ce244e
    Dead I am DEAD
  17. "Constance Zimmer, what are YOU doing here??" -- a thing I say at some point during EVERY SHOW EVER
    22a185c0 497c 4e99 8eea 23099cd53705
    And it is NEVER a problem
  18. Patton Oswalt & his supply of lanyards
    26b74072 e763 4ac0 9ce4 590f494421a5
    They will be distributed on a case by case basis
  19. Inhumans!!
    Ac03247f bae9 4419 8cef ec6f511c4c45
    V cool Marvel plot line introduced here first!! Ahhhh so many aliens w powers!!
  20. Gadgets & gizmos aplenty
    54bb878d 7de5 48eb 9062 113d1f21a99a
    Do you like high tech spy gear? I like high tech spy gear. Fitz also likes high tech spy gear and is v good at making it
  21. The many faces of Bobbi Morse
    Ce6bdf8a b9d7 4339 ae61 a7ce04f7f93d
    Her undercover game is ON POINT
  22. Moreover, when Bobbi & May are undercover together
    E356110e f1c2 4f49 bd31 1adc64b76a98
    Bobbi is so good at keeping cool under pressure and May just wants to punch everyone
  23. Mack in season 3
    8ba82e50 7043 453c bf99 9474d95723c5
    Mack is always the first one to call bullshit. He's not afraid to tell someone when they're outta control or out of line. He's strong and smart and cool and collected and man does it show. He's so subtle about it but he's like the rock of this group.
  24. Also, the dynamic between Mack, Fitz, and Hunter
    2bebdc1a 363c 474b 9b81 830c16edba63
    Hunter just doesn't get Fitz and you can tell Mack thinks it's hilarious but also kinda sad bc Fitz is so lost sometimes
    E92cb75c 37b0 4e1d 98fc 4b5f5c4d77a0
    This episode though! When she talks to Fitz to keep herself sane & alive!!
  26. Because @joemurphy and I say so and our word is law
