Ward becomes exposed to a piece of an Asgardian staff, which causes his worst memory to resurface.
Did You Know?
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
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
Coulson ordered me to give you a full work up, so that's exactly what I'm doing. Now, um, before you passed out, were you feeling... claustrophobic ?
She's ruling out a panic attack.
I don't panic. Ever.
There we go, ruled out.
