Warning: The following post contains massive spoilers for tonight's episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Don't read any further if you haven't watched yet.
Say it ain't so! The fiercest bob on TV is no more.
That's right: Rosalind Price and her magnificent hair cut were brutally murdered in the opening moments of tonight's episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. And though she hadn't been around long, this loss hurts, not only because we don't like to see Phil Coulson in pain.
We'd only just gotten confirmation that Rosalind (Constance Zimmer) was someone Coulson (Clark Gregg) and the team could trust and that piece of work Ward (Brett Dalton) had to go and shoot her in the neck. It's pretty safe to say that Ward and S.H.I.E.L.D. are never ever getting back together. Why'd he do it? Simple revenge for the loss of Kara/Agent 33 at the end of last season.
From there, we saw a Coulson unhinged, operating on a near-feral level that we've never seen from him before. In his quest to wipe Ward off the map once and for all, he gets Leo (Iain De Caestecker) and Jemma (Elizabeth Henstridge) kidnapped by Hydra, with Malick (Powers Boothe) intent on using the five monolith stones to open the portal and send a team through to retrieve the original Inhuman on the planet. Who's the team? Leo, who surrendered to protect Jemma, and Ward, who's somehow convinced to lead the probable suicide mission by Malick.
Oh, and they've got someone tagging along: Coulson himself, who dives out of a plane and straight through the portal like a boss. Only hiccup? He hits his head on impact and is down for the count. He better wake up soon. He's got a fallen love to avenge.
