A couple of belated thoughts:
I like Not!Coulson. Our SHIELD heroes are sometimes a little ... smug, and Sarge's refusal to be impressed by the team was kind of appealing to me. Don't get me wrong. I love Director Mac, but his whole "See, we are awesome because we saved both people"--when even a moron (and by this I mean myself) could have told them that putting two people infested by Shrikes together in the containment pod was probably not a good idea--was a tad self-righteous. So Sarge's, "Sure. Let's see how that works out for you" made me kind of smile.
Was this the first time we've seen Simmons and Fitz talk over each other and actually stop and say, "Oh, you go first"? I feel like usually they just talk over each other without pausing because they're both saying the same thing. Here they were still saying the same thing, but there seemed to be a bit of a misstep in their usual dance. It made me a little sad to see them out of sync.
