Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. ended up turning in a fantastic season two finale

Last night's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. had an action packed season finale. First off, I had no idea it was a two hour season finale at that. I think I just kept thinking, "Is this episode going to end?" Second off, I was surprised that Skye's father ended up begin Mr. Hyde. I thought that was a rather interesting development. Third, Coulson is forming a new superpowered team with Skye at the center. I like it. Maybe there's been pressure from The Flash to showcase more superheroes in the show. It's a major shift away from the season one pitch, which was a show about normal people dealing with a world where superheroes are real. Marvel/Disney probably wants to invigorate ratings on the show because they know it works well to launch ideas and to promote their movies.

I thought for sure that the writers would redeem Ward. Nope, he's still evil. And the road that the character has traveled looked like it may have run out of steam, but he's going to become the head of Hydra.

As for Raina, I never much liked her character and kind of wonder if all that makeup she was wearing was a pain to get into. Having her character die was probably a mercy killing really. That way she can seek out another role that doesn't require her to probably wear really painful contact lenses.

There's also the matter of the Terrigen Mist, which is now being mass distributed as fish oil and will probably cause a change in the entire Marvel universe in general. And of course they couldn't leave well enough alone. Fitz asked Simmons to go on a date and left the room only to have her get attacked by the rock in the hold and get sucked into it. That's gotta suck. I wonder what happened to her?

Overall, this was a very satisfying end to a really good season. Agree? Disagree? I hate the fact I'm going to have to wait 8 months to get some answers. Sigh.
