Does Ward actually feel guilty about killing Thomas Nash?
Answer 1: Nope - he’s totally manipulating Skye here as Victoria Hand said HYDRA does in the previous scene.
Answer 2 (ie. what I believe): Yes, he feels very guilty about killing Nash.
Why do I think this? Well I believe that he has never had to kill an innocent person before. Think about it - Ward was taken to the woods by Garrett when he was a teenager and lived there on his own. He hadn’t killed anyone before. Who would he kill out there? I mean he couldn’t even kill Buddy. Then he went right to SHIELD Academy to train to become an agent. Anything he did from there on out, was part of being an agent. He admits to killing people in the first episode saying he didn’t feel good about it. Even though this was under the effect of the supposed “truth serum” I still believe him. Any killing he has done was sanctioned by SHIELD and so was acceptable. Whether Garrett gave the order or not to kill Nash is up for debate as well but I digress…
So Nash was the first person that he killed that was not part of a mission or part of his work for SHIELD. I doubt he did much killing when he was training with Garrett because they would be under the watchful eye of SHIELD as well and really, there was no reason to. Ward is going into an impossible situation in this scene, 12 agents against him. He has to take them all out with just two ICERs and we hear the SHIELD agents have a shoot to kill order. He knew he could likely die. Why would he say he deserves to die for killing Nash? Sounds like guilt to me. If not, what would be the point of manipulating Skye at this point and saying that? I feel like he just wanted to get it off his chest about how he felt about him killing Nash. This shows to me that he can take responsibility for his actions. What does this mean? He is totally capable of redeeming himself. I think with his conditioning and brainwashing by Garrett, he doesn’t see SHIELD agents as innocent though. Garrett told him that SHIELD was the enemy, abandoned him and left him to die. I think he needs to face the fact that these agents that he murdered were innocent in that they did not deserve to die, no one does in that way. This will be painful for Ward but will open him up to redemption. I look forward to this journey!

Ward’s Torture?

So I was re-watching some episodes (as per usual). Coulson tells Ward in the last episode that he will torture Grant for Hydra intel. Ummm, I’m pretty sure Ward knew nothing that’s important. Eric asked Grant if he knew Alexander Pierce or anything about Project Insight. It didn’t set off the lie detector when he said no. Those are some pretty Hydra things he should know. I’m hoping that during the torture (please don’t torture him Coulson…) that it will be revealed that Ward knew nothing really and his only allegiance was to Garrett.

The countdown started with Ward so anyone saying he isn’t important should take a look at the latest and *official* promo pic. The writers and ppl of Marvel know the hate that is being sent their way. They are fully aware.

And that’s why I think engaging in any more arguments is useless because…

Bam!! So true. I squealed when I saw the promo.

You let her get one over on you. That’s exactly what Garrett was afraid of.

HE HESITATED HERE TOO.

*insert frozen Olaf “you hesitated” gif*…

It’s so freaking clear that how could you not notice his hesitation or his love. He’s just trying to keep her safe and he’s failing miserably.

I love that he tried so hard to deny….ppl that say SkyeWard is creepy are the questionable ones.
