I don't know Simmons, I don't think we're ready for the field.
Oh come on now, it'll be fine. We'll get to see the world! We'll be real S.H.I.E.L.D. agents!
Like most young graduates, Jemma Simmons has ambitious goals she wants to achieve. Among them are finding the cures to various illnesses, winning a Nobel prize, and finding the right moment to make a move on her oblivious best friend. Her current life goal is to "see the world", a phrase which here means "to traverse around the globe for new experiences, to learn about the unknown, and to visit places she always dreamed of". While the goal itself is relatively harmless, she'll soon find out that her partner, Leo Fitz, was correct in his hesitation. Now, if you came to this television series expecting a fun-filled romp featuring two scientists in love exploring the world, then you should leave right now. Instead, you'll find betrayal, suffering, family drama, drawn-out death sequences, ancient fascists, and an incredibly poorly-written love triangle featuring a member of NASA. So I ask you to please, please...look away.
What I really loved about Jemma standing up to Radcliffe to protect Fitz in last night’s episode was how mad she was. Because she understood what Fitz was dealing with. She knows he doesn’t have a father around. She knows that Fitz enjoyed hanging out with Radcliffe and that he considered him as father figure (whether Fitz told her or her own intuition). And she knows how many times Fitz has been betrayed by people close to him. She loves Fitz and never wants to see him in pain and she understood how painful this was to him.
