My wife and I usually watch Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. together, a series that she initially didn’t want to watch at all. Now, however, she’s so into it that she watched the newest episode without me. Without me, the person who got her into it in the first place! (Same thing happened with Lost, though the roles were reversed.)
I was laid up by a cold and/or allergies (the jury’s still out) and didn’t watch the show until the following day. Nevertheless I had a heads up as to what to expect due to my wife’s unprompted bedside dialog:
“How you feeling? Can I get you anything? Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is really dark. Maybe too dark.”
The series is definitely dark, particularly of late, and episode #8 is no different. With a title like The Things we Bury, how could it not be? The title refers to physical burials involving dead bodies and a buried wishing well, plus emotional burials of past traumas, some involving said wishing well.
Most of this darkness stems from Grant “is he bad or good” Ward and his “Conjunction Junction, What’s your Dysfunction” family. He seems to want redemption, but he darkens so much in this episode that I join my wife in wondering — is he redeemable?

Previously on Once Upon a Time… Emma and Elsa realized that the Snow Queens intention was to create a new family, with the two of them as her specially selected sisters.
“ONCE UPON A TIME”- The Snow Queen
Meanwhile, through Belle’s insecurities, in terms of her knowledge about the whereabout of Anna, Belle faces the truth by telling Elsa the truth about Anna.
Regina had demanded that Robin Hood keep her out of his life, so that he could fall back in love with his first true love, Maid Marion.
Lastly, there was a huge can of worms presented when Grand Papi told Anna that Gerda did have two older sisters and that they had been erased from the public record. When Anna pressed him why, he said that Ingrid and Helga had disappeared in the royal garden, and that they were never spoken of or heard of again.
