why don’t tv writers realize there are better storylines than cheating and death
With Ward, it was shady and shocking, but made some sense.
Jemma, however? Simmons cannot lie for her life. Obviously she’ll need to learn how to, but she’s a scientist, and HYDRA not only attempted to kill both her and
the man totally in love with her who’s also her best friend and if this stuff didn’t happen would probably be the person she marries and has adorable British kids and pet monkeys with known as Fitz, but left him so mentally damaged, she became overwhelmed with guilt and bad feelings.
Simmons is in a desperate place. Obviously the others blame her for leaving, but she’s in over her head, and is trying to find her purpose. But HYDRA? She may be having a quarter-life crisis, but Jemma’s last vow to Fitz was that she was not HYDRA.
If anything, Simmons’ loyalty isn’t so much as with the team, or even Fitz, but with herself and her values, which are to follow the rules and do what’s right. For her, talking to and coddling Fitz wasn’t making progress, so know she’s doing something on her own- whether to rationally find something to help Fitz, or to blindly attempt to take down HYDRA singlehandedly.
Besides, this is episode three- Whedon Rule #385 dictates that genuine big reveals happen in or right before a season/mid-season finale.
It’s a fact.
