okay but like
jemma doesn’t know skye’s ‘infected’??? and she’s clearly having a reaction to all the death she’s been unable to prevent and putting it all on herself
like she’s literally looking at herself to figure out why. she’s not just blaming herself for everything that goes wrong now, she’s like, okay, the baseline here is that i’m to blame. that’s not even up for discussion. but why, specifically am i to blame, and how can i rectify this so that no one else gets hurt??
she will fling herself off a plane to protect those she loves, she will remain steadfastly silent to protect those she loves, she will go into hydra untrained to protect those she loves, and she will, we can now see, quite literally change fundamental things about herself to protect those she loves. she would even give up science if it came to it. because she loves people so fiercely.
her people. all people.
