Nathan Fillion, Seth Green, & Chloe Bennet comparing notes on remembering complex computer jargon during scenes
Seth:When I did Enemy of the State, I was like, constantly typing stuff and plus, like, just spouting just relentless jargon about satellites and ya know, digital mapping and coding and things like that. Just things that people don't say unless you do that. And I, uh, for all of the shots that were facing this way [gestures a close up on his face], I just taped my jargon, like, right on the monitor, and then I was like 'Guys he's on your 3 o'clock, make sure you get the West-
Chloe:That's a really good idea!
Seth:So, you can't- you can't do it-
Chloe:I am *totally* doing that!
Seth:You can't do it all the time, but if it's, like, nonstop ya know-
Chloe:It's jargon, like computer jargon.
Seth:Shakespeare jargon, and they're facing you, you can totally just stick it there.
Chloe:If you're supposed to be reading stuff...
Nathan:Chloe, here's a secret, put part of it over there, part of it down here, and part of it over there. So it doesn't look like you're just reading the one spot, and you can go this spot and go to this spot. Then, take one line, put it in the bottom of a coffee cup and grab it and go 'Pheew'.
People are cruel man they don’t want Ward to be redeemed.
Shows how cold-hearted they are, man.
Just cuz you hate him doesn’t mean his life should end because of you. Give the man a chance to find himself, man!!
They are largely hypocritical. Most of them love Loki or Black Widow, yet detest Ward.
They don’t consider what he’s been through. What being in that situation was actually like. They shrug it off and basically, ‘I don’t care what he was going through, he had a choice.’ —-> No, he did not. He never has. Well, wait, I take that back, he made a choice, which I applaud him for. When he was a teen and tried to set fire to his house with his disgusting abusive shithead of an older brother inside. THAT was a proactive choice. Something he chose to do, in a last ditch effort to eradicate the monster who made their family life a living Hell. Been there myself.
Then of course, Ward got tossed into Juvie, with his parents and brother (essentially his entire family, as the others no doubt kept quiet) looking to lock him away for decades behind bars. John comes along, giving him a pitch about making him stronger and gave him a short window to say yes. John was his olive branch.
We saw Ward voice his concerns a few times throughout his time with Garrett. Both as a teen and an adult who had infiltrated Coulson’s team (FOR INTEL). Each time, John utilized negative reinforcement to make Ward back down. He picked on his insecurities, his underlying ‘weakness’ - aka human emotion and attachment.
So when I hear the haters bitch and moan that Ward ‘had a choice’ - No, he did not. He essentially had a life debt to John. He was conditioned to do as he was told (much like a SPY) and get the mission done. No attachments.
I cannot wait to see Ward’s redemption story and as Brett, himself, said, to see WHO Grant is. With no negative influence.
Open your eyes and ears, people.
If you really despise Ward that much, and don’t want a redemption story, even though that is kind of Marvel and Whedon’s M.O. - then just leave. No one needs your negativity anymore. The true fans of the show see his character’s story arc (both what it’s been and the possibilities for the future), the writers are excited to flush out who Grant is, Brett is extremely excited, and pretty much the rest of the cast.
That is a whole lot of important people who disagree with you.
