'Agents of SHIELD' episode 7 'The Hub' recap: When will Coulson finally crack?

If "Marvel's Agents of SHIELD's" premiere episode was all about Agent Coulson convincing Skye that SHIELD is an organization to be trusted, its seventh episode "The Hub" was about her convincing him that it isn't. Though Coulson's fellow SHIELD agents -- recurring character Agent Sitwell (Maximiliano Hernandez) and Marvel favorite Victoria Hand (Saffron Burrows) -- continue to enforce to him that he needs to "trust the system," it becomes clear over the course of this episode that he really shouldn't. The most pressing aspect of SHIELD keeping Coulson out of the know came when Hand sent Fitz and Ward into an operation where they didn't have an extraction. Of course, she declined to tell Coulson or his two men that tiny detail when recruiting them for the mission. Thank goodness Skye blatantly flouted Coulson's orders, question his authority and shouted unprofessionally at him as they walked through SHIELD's Hub or he might not have found...
