i’m in total agreement about the stupidity of bringing Coulson and Ward on the raid to catch Lorelei. Don’t they have mission briefings about these things? This should have been the top item:
- if you’re a male, and see Lorelei, incapacitate her ON SITE. BEFORE she can even speak. And whatever you do, DON’T LET HER TOUCH YOU.
Ward not only doesn’t ‘ice’ her on site, but also lets her approach him, and then touch him. Why didn’t he fire once she started moving towards him? One could maybe say that her speaking slightly entranced him, so he couldn’t fire, but for someone at his level, probably with anti-brainwashing/mindcontrol training, that’s quite a stretch… My wife kept yelling at the screen “shoot her! shoot her!”, nope…
Another thing that bothered me… Ward has the gun on May. Lorelei (i think?) comes up to Ward and kisses him. He closes his eyes and kissed back. I’m yelling “grab the gun! grab the gun!” at May. Again, nope.
