Trivia

In the flashback/dream sequence at the end when Coulson is getting the massage in Tahiti he asks the masseuse "Did I fall asleep?" to which she replies "For a little while." This was the question and answer response for all of the "Dolls" when they had undergone programming in Joss Whedon's Dollhouse. See more »

Goofs

On the first section of the Asgard staff found, the runes on the staff spelled out "RAGE", while the second spelled out "POWER", in modern English, just with Norse Futhark runes instead of English letters. At the very least, they should have spelled out the words in Old Norse, if not in the alien Asgardian language. See more »

Some cultists find a a piece of an Asgardian Staff - And it turns them into "gods"

Jakob Nystrom and Petra Larsen (Michael Graziadei and Erin Way) are a couple of nice-looking people that have this one issue: they turn foul when they grab the Asgardian "Berzerker Staff". Actually they are the leaders of a Pagan Hate Group, who want the staff to start a world wide ruckus.

The problem, is, trouble usually comes in threes, and the staff has 3 parts.

But Coulson has a friend, an expert on all things Asgardian, "Dr. Elliot Randolph" (Peter MacNicol)- He was apparently there, when Coulson found Thor's Hammer in the Desert. Not that we actually saw it, but Coulson says so, so it happened, stet? Dr Randolph tells him the Legend of the Berserker Warrior from Asgard, who elected to walk away from war, splitting his Staff into 3 parts. He seems to know the story well for some reason- You could say he is intimately acquainted with it.

And so Fitz-Simmons Fringes out that one of the pieces is right there in Spain, but when they try to go get it, not only are the Pagans also there, but Dr Randolph is too and he has the piece.

And to make things worse, Ward touches the thing and starts getting jolts of bad childhood memories that are pi**ing him off, not that this is much of an improvement for the character.

Welp, it seems that Randolph had a reason why he was so familiar with the story, it was his story, it was history.

What could be worse than a p'd off Ward? A p'd off MAY. Gotta say, Ward acquitted himself pretty well, but May was born to wield that thing - Cos she can handle it, not that it affects her much, she's ALWAYS filled with bad memories.

Jon Frakes directs this heap, this episode was prefect for him to direct, it was a "Riker" episode.
