Was that a Judas bullet from Luke Cage ?

That was my inference too, Pendragon.

Yeah, there's no way it was anything else.

I really enjoyed this one. I remember when Agents of SHIELD was so bad I thought they'd just straight up get canceled, and here they are being genuinely awesome episode after episode. I think my favorite bit was Jemma using the severed android head to intimidate the captured assassin.

I also liked that when Talbot waxed nostalgic about torture, people were not on board. That was a small thing, but I noticed and appreciated it.

This was also a good way to bring Coulson back as the power behind the throne, without taking it public. Mace really is much better at that angle than he is.

I did enjoy this plot development. I like Mace in general, really.

The fact that Mace's only real superpower is that he's a decent person is quite endearing.

Got to say I'm disappointed that no one else pointed out that the pilot got Washed.

Well, to be Washed you have to first say that 'leaf on the wind' thing, and THEN get skewered.
