I don't know if he ever had a chance at being anything other than what he was. HYDRA got to him when he was a teenager.
We were the deep cover assignment. And maybe part of him really did care. But it wasn't enough. He killed Hand. He killed Koenig. He tried to kill Fitz and Simmosn. He worked with the man who tortured my mother and kidnapped me for my psycho father. He and Kara kidnapped Bobbi and tortured her. He did so many things. When he died I was glad. That's not a nice thing to say, but I was.
He told me I wouldn't like him if I knew who he really was, but I figured he was talking about weird issues. Not...HYDRA and murder. He had stuff in his life. And he was manipulated by Garrett. But it doesn't excuse the choices he made after. You can only try to help someone so much before you have to give up.
