The Ice Storm

No, her unsmiling visage is meant to cast suspicion on her, given that we cut to Ian Quinn – you remember him from the gravitonium device back in Episode Three – telling someone on the phone that he doesn't want to hear excuses "about why it didn't work." He tells the other person to "take care of it before I arrive" and to remember "how much this will benefit us both." He then gets out of his limo as he's told his plane is waiting, and even though it like the Callie thing has to be a fake-out, it still seems likely he's coming to the Academy. On a scale of one to Director-Fury-in-a-bad-mood, how mad's he going to be at Skye?

Skye is asking Gill if there's anyone at the Academy who'd want to hurt him, but Gill simply replies he doesn't know anyone before Weaver tells him she'll have an escort take him to his room. On his way out, though, he sincerely tells Fitz and Simmons he was looking forward to their lecture, and I love how on TV this good-enough-looking, quiet-but-polite-enough kid is the absolute epitome of social awkwardness in a nerd factory like Sci/Tech. After Gill's gone, our S.H.I.E.L.D. heroes and Weaver have a little confab, the relevant points of which are these: Donnie, who at eighteen (and an IQ of 190) is the youngest student they're had since Fitz/Simmons, inexplicably was at the pool with a bunch of popular kids; given his social difficulties, Sci/Tech was thinking of graduating him early and assigning him to the Sandbox; the device that produced the freezing effect had to have been extremely expensive to make. Once Weaver's gone off to continue her interviews, Ward asks Fitz/Simmons where they hung out when they wanted to get away from the faculty, and I'm assuming he means besides the pool? Simmons wonders if they can safely tell an Operations suit like Ward, but Ward answers in the affirmative, adding that they need to conduct their own investigation. Zoinks!

In "Mexico City, Mexico," as opposed to the one in Sri Lanka, Coulson and May wait in Lola, and while I do love the car I have to wonder if it's best for a stakeout, particularly of a former S.H.I.E.L.D. agent who probably knows a fair bit about Coulson. Anyway, they are watching the premises of, I believe, a passport forger who does not use a computer; the idea is that Lumley will know S.H.I.E.L.D. is on to him and as such will be looking to leave the country, and he'll come here to avoid leaving any electronic trail for S.H.I.E.L.D. to trace. Sound logic! Now where are the stakeout snacks?
