I think it would be fair to at least put some of your post in spoilers, since not everyone is going to see it at the same time as you. Since we're all seeing them online, there's no set schedule, so it wouldn't be bad to black out some of the critical plot details or something. But, in response to your points: Spoiler I got the impression that the spell was focused on Thor, and so it had to be Thor who broke everyone free of it. Iron Man and Cap were beside Thor when he was hit with the spell, so they got caught in the crossfire unintentionally. Hawkeye was well behind them, so he didn't get hit. Other than that, I generally agree with your points. It also kind of reduced Loki to a one-off pawn of a villain, which is kind of degrading, since he was the main antagonist of the entire first season.
