Phil Coulson: Tell me where to find the Obelisk.
Raina: I'm afraid it's out of my hands.
Phil Coulson: That really doesn't work for me. I've seen what that thing can do. It's too dangerous to be out in the real world.
Raina: You've only seen the beginning. Just because something's powerful doesn't make it dangerous.
Phil Coulson: In this case, it's more the death and destruction.
Raina: You must believe me, Agent Coulson we want the same thing.
Phil Coulson: Unless it's an end to this conversation, I'm pretty sure we don't.

Re-watch Thoughts
13 February 2019 | by noorea-85147See all my reviews

Another great episode, in the grand tradition of this show a new character is introduced and is instantly a favorite, Bobbi took absolutely no time to grow on me. Ruth Negga was great in this episode, really good actress, I thought the way her story played out this episode was unexpected and really refreshing to watch..also, I know I have hindsight and all, but I remember all the way back when I watched this episode, Skye's dad is an absolute joy to watch! Oh and that Fitzsimmons reunion, had so much weight in it, it's a lot of show don't tell, a signature move for those 2 since the actors are brilliant enough to act with body language alone!
