If a condition yields neither True nor False, it returns the Which expression only partially evaluated, expecting that some day that expression might start yielding True or False. In your case, for example, if you ever assign x a value that makes -6+6 x be negative, then that Which will be resolved. Not sure what you expected...

As you can see: {Which[f2 > 0, "T", f2 < 0, "H", f2 == 0, "S" ], x,
f} /. ew] this expression is evaluated and it yields true for each x
in ew.

I think, he is expecting someting like {{H,0,0},{T,2,-4}}
