Another great episode, this episode starts with a happy rom-com-esqe song, which I've had on my playlist for the past 4 years after hearing it on the show, it's not really relevant just an interesting fact. Anyway, I liked the return of Donne, the introduction of Hydra's brainwashing techniques, and finally getting to see what Jemma is up to. Also this episode features one of the award worthy performances by Iain (Fitz) which brings me to tears everytime I watch it.
