Strategically sound if Christian was a person of his word, but he's not. He never has been, and I tried to tell Coulson that, but he wasn't interested in listening. Whatever I had to say, it was just going to be lies.
Yeah. He is. Fury left him in charge under the assumption that Coulson could bring SHIELD back to what it was supposed to be. Except he hasn't. He's driven it so much furthrr from its potential....
I wasn't going back to him. My brother made my childhood hell. He spent fifteen years torturing us, using me, and lyingin order not to take the blame. I wasn't going back to him especially not in chains.
So I escaped. I thought... if I couldn't show them I could help them on their terms, maybe I could do it on my own.
Once I took care of the danger my brother represented.
