If you break into a military base IRL THEY WILL SHOOT YOU, especially if you're armed.
Yep. They sure will.
In any event, my big issue with all of this- aside from there being now this very vague sense of exactly who and what our erstwhile tv protagonists are supposed to represent, morally- is that there may not be any repercussions against them by their own organization. I'm pretty much expecting that to be the case, sadly.
After all, this is a team that has members who assaulted a senior officer *in SHIELD headquarters* no less, and didn't receive so much as a slap on the wrist. And who has an agent of some indeterminate status (in training, I guess) who has repeatedly hacked her way into secure systems and got off pretty lightly (just being allowed to remain on the team was a bit much in and of itself).
Which is my problem with the series so far as a whole. There are no stakes for these characters, because there are no consequences either for their actions or for their inactions. It's written in a pretty cursory manner, without any real attempt to explore what the writers are putting on screen. They want to make it as "realist" as possible, so that we can better buy into the world they're building before they start throwing too much of the fantastic into it, yet they don't paint their characters or the organization with a realistic touch. It's tv pointilism- looks okay from a distance, but is just a mess when you get too close.
I want to like this show better (a lot better, frankly). I want to support this show. I have a lot of sentiment towards Marvel and the MCU (even though I dn't feel any connection to the current state of Marvel comics).
