Before it Oired at 10, ABC gave a general anticipation line
'Which was a secret about the new director will changer things'
So pretty much the entire episode before official reveal I knee his powers was fake.
To be fair, until their was focused on briefcase, I didn't even think about that (briefcase skip my mind other episodes)
That and how why director had something too hide as Simmons noticed about his 'heroic'
Also, kinda weird how he had an armor compared to everyone else. Not even Coulson had armor. Pop up shield, yes, but that due to his hand and not director status
I don't like the way the New Director pussied out.
Actually, I had feeling he wasn't that brave without powers.
The fact he focuses a lot on trust, motivational lines, and color code clearance kind say he wasn't a former shield member, much less military officer
