The moral of the story? Murder begets murder, revenge begets revenge.
Out goes Kara. Ward repays by taking out Rosalind. Coulson takes out Ward.
Coulson could have stopped and shrugged and reckoned, Ward's just taking a piece off the board.
Ward also could have shrugged and thought the same of Kara.
Nobody does that, though. There is *some* calculating involved in certain things - if you hit a place and are good enough to not be found, they will eventually chalk it up as a cost of doing business. But when you're dealing both with emotions and a set of rules that says they take out one of yours, you take out two of theirs - that ends either with people stopping because they're tired of killing, or because everyone's dead.
Revenge solves nothing. It fixes nothing. It may go under DSAF, but it does not make you feel better. That is a life everyone would do well to leave.

"She's waited months and months for this kiss. She'd tried replacing him with Will and even Fitz to a smaller degree and it hasn't worked. She'd felt nothing in comparison to the passion she feels in this moment. In the hard desperate way his lips slant over hers, the careful way his hands cradle her face. The taste of him fills her up like sunlight filling a once dark room."
Stop it, I'm gettin' misty.

It's a good ending. When you create a void inside someone, something will fill it. It's incredibly hard to get that out and replace it with anything good.

Hate. Anger. They won't get you where you need to go, but they'll keep you moving when you'd otherwise fall to pieces.

Well, so far this is a really dark and dangerous Simmons; I cannot wait to see what more she will be able to do to everyone who'd pissed her off.
