On the plane with Garrett, Ward inserts a magazine into his pistol and racks the slide back, and it stays back; he has to hit the slide release to allow the slide forwards again. This only happens with an empty magazine, yet he is able to fire the pistol afterwards. See more »


Victoria Hand: You got something to say, Agent Shaw?
Agent Shaw: Apologies, ma'am. I'm just having a hard time killing the people we once called friends.
Victoria Hand: Once that encoded transmission went out, everything changed. You understand that, don't you? We swore allegiance to each other. And today, that loyalty will be tested. If you waver you die.

Rewatch thoughts
31 January 2019 | by noorea-85147See all my reviews

I adore this episode!! still ranks in my top 10 of the show (yeah, there are more amazing ones to come) since I have watched the rest of the show it is hard to separate my love for the episode itself from its significance to the show, it is the definition of a game changer! I don't think many realize how historic this episode was, it's probably the only example of that kind of real time connected story telling between movies and a tv show, and sadly the best one we have in the show, as things go on I believe the whole endeavor grew too complicated to keep and the show goes its own way, for better or worse, because I don't think it hurt the show. regardless that doesn't change the fact that marvel swang for the fences in this episode and it was spectacular in every way! The action, the music, the acting (shoutout to the late Bill Paxton for his awesome performance), th twists, the turns, and the pacing, all great. I still remember the first time I watched this episode, I was blown away by all the twists and turns, I didn't see any of them coming,I watched Cap 2 about few months before starting the show and I didn't know that was the episode they crossover, so the whole thing was a shock to me, and he end of the episode simply made me realize how this show can exceed all expectations and that it was fooling all of us by appearing to use cliches so it hurts even more when we realize we were played! Round of applause for the cast and crew.
