Am I the only one who thought this scene was basically anima and animus?

Finally finished the season. I totally get that this is not for everyone and honestly there is a lot in the show that normally would irk the hell out of me but it's all done so well. It was a compelling ride mostly and there were no bad performances. Even though lots of stuff is still quite vague the season's story wraps up with the main story clear enough.

Did anyone else suspect Oliver left not necessarily totally under the Shadow King's total control? He had just gotten the memory of who his wife was back. He also was very adept when it came to his psychic power. I think there is a possibility he knew he was infected by Shadow King and left with it inside of him to protect his wife and the others.

So surprisingly, Fox does own the rights to SWORD. Man, that X-Men contract is something! Could be interesting if Hawley plans to use them!

Yeah, it has to do with Astonishing X-Men, iirc.

Yeah, SWORD was always all about the X-Men, and I'm not sure why anyone thought it'd be with the Avengers, since it is SHIELD affiliated in name only.

I think this episode was a let down. The final conclusion was confusing and contrived, with macguffins all about, and really left David sort of... blank in a way, and the way it ended, with him getting sucked up into a camera thing (WTF? Mojo maybe?) I really felt it was a repeat of the plot of the first season... someone's captured him, he has to break out... it felt grating, even though I suspect they'll have something interesting.

Hopefully less conventions and more answers going forward

I knew SWORD debuted in Astonishing X-Men and have read Whedon's run on it, it's just that I wasn't sure something as modern would be part of the X-Men deal. Obviously we have examples like Angel Salvadore who came right before in Morrison's X-Men, but SWORD seemed a bit dubious.

The rights don't make sense. At best, you can find something to point to, but there are many examples on the margins I would have guessed belonged to the other side - particularly with Marvel cosmic.

There are a couple rights that don't make sense, but most of them seem pretty solidly based on 'iconic story' with silos around Spidey, X-Men, and FF.

Maybe David was able to read Clark's mind in regards to the situation where the leader of the group interrogating told him to kill David but Clark asked that they at least give him until the end of the day. Perhaps David saw that he was willing to give him a measure of mercy so David offered the same to him.

EDIT: If mind-reading or reading thoughts was one of David's abilities. Not sure if it was or not

SWORD began about the x-men. Which makes sense, because it was in an x-men book. Wolverine debuted in a Hulk book, but he's not part of the Hulk property...

I'm really surprised Fox has this, considering SWORD wasn't even created until 2005, which is long after Fox had made the deal with Marvel. I wouldn't imagine the deal would include any and all future IPs... that just seems outrageous.

SWORD has gone on to do plenty of other non X-Men related things in the books over the years. Anyway, it looks like Marvel might just do the "screw it we don't care" route and replace SWORD with an identical space defence operation, if agents of shield goes where it looks to be going.

So much like Marvel said "to hell with mutants, everything is inhumans now." they might just say "screw SWORD" now we have "SPACE SHIELD"
