I now understand why Barney and Robin did not make it. She was fighting against Hydra. And it's nice to know that Emily Thorne was able to use her Revenge skills to help Captain America bring down the underbelly of SHIELD. I am happy that despite her KGB ties, Black Widow is no longer Lost in Translation! My one hope is that Jules won't become so angry with SHIELD that he returns to his murderous ways!
