↳ favorite daisy/coulson scene [1/3] · 1x15 yes men
“Yes Men” is, granted, not a good episode, but it has one of the best final scenes of the entire show. Even now, it makes my cold bitter heart pump wildly with excitement.
Coulson finally talks to Daisy about what happened in “T.A.H.I.T.I.” and basically straight up asks for forgiveness for being responsible for injecting her with something that turned out to be alien. Coulson is afraid of what the consecuences could be for her, and guilt-ridden for doing something he couldn’t be sure she would’ve wanted. In a world that keeps writing fiction about how it doesn’t matter that you go explicitly against a loved one’s wishes as long as it’s because you want them to be alive/well, Coulson being so torn up about the posibility of forcing something onto Daisy she didn’t want is almost a miracle.
And after Daisy exonerates Coulson (she wanted to live, any other issues they’ll deal with later, together), he is finally able to arrive to the logical payoff of Daisy’s influence on him: SHIELD has secrets (from her, from him and from everybody else), they have a bunch of questions and they’re gonna get the answers themselves. Which places them in a good moral position to be only an episode before the whole “SHIELD is infiltrated by HYDRA” bomb fell on everybody. All thanks to Daisy not trusting the system. When will your faves ever tbh.
