Daisy allying herself with Ghost Rider was an interesting choice at the end albeit an expected one.

Yeah. Got to say the new director seemed a bit tedious. And his 'power' seems to be quite boring too.

I enjoyed the rest of the episode, though. Fitting to have the flaming bonehead be able to touch ghosts.

Didn't really grab me - I couldn't shake the feeling of too much being contrived. It's as if the producers demand an action event every 5 minutes, and if there isn't one, to pull one out of nowhere.

For example, when Daisy went to see Ghost Rider at his workshop - why? What was she trying to achieve? All she did was - eventually - provoke him into a fight which she immediately lost. Then she follows him some more.

May - knows something is wrong, but hasn't done anything so far. Gangster kills himself to ensure action event. May kicks off, ensuring another action event (and somehow Coulson manages to get back on his feet after 3 attacks by May). Surely someone would have simply pulled a stun gun on May, instead of going against her one-on-one in turn?

The new director - who?? Last I remember in the films, Nick Fury was still alive. I didn't notice a new director coming in, and I certainly don't recognise this guy. Much as though I've previously enjoyed Agents of Shield, a criticism from the start has always been that it's not integrated enough with the films - you'd think Disney/Marvel might have managed that?

In the meantime, a little too much hiding of secrets, miscommunication, and misunderstanding for the sake of pushing the plot.

Still, I'll hang in and see what happens, but it's starting to feel somewhat tired.
