Thank god “S.H.I.E.L.D” didn’t make us think Simmons had actually joined H.Y.D.R.A for too long. Simmons is my girl and has been since she jumped out of that airplane in Season 1. Seeing her turn to the dark side for real would have been absolutely heartbreaking considering she had always been such a goody two-shoes. But having Coulson plant her as a spy in H.Y.D.R.A says a lot about both their characters: Coulson is now more willing to put his friends in danger, while Simmons is strong enough now to be trusted with some heavy field work.
