We will never be rid of these stars. But I hope they live forever.

Good episode, I can't help but feel like they're going to need to go back BEFORE all of this to re-sort the timeline. So when Fitz comes to the rescue with the secret of time travel?

Man this show is so good. Even watching it from season 1 I'm loving it, cause I know all the awesome stuff that's coming down the pipe, and it's ALWAYS fun to spend time with Ward. This, imho, is by FAR the best all around Marvel TV show. As proof, I have no urge to watch any Netflix Marvel stuff ever again ... in series that only ran 13 episodes, they still managed to fill half of them with filler. Except maybe Jessica Jones season 1.

All the NPCs will look up and shout, "Do this quest!"

The team will drop Sousa off at 2012 in New York where he becomes a cop, thus fixing any and all continuity errors in casting.

The season finale will be undoing Zalbo's TAHITI by dropping off a single strip of paper that says "Skye."

Seconds later he comes crashing through the wall in full Hyde form.

Hay hay hay!

So what are your predictions for some of then next episodes? And finale predictions? I feel we are gonna revisit Turn, Turn, Turn from S1. Maybe pick up a young Fitz.

As for a finale, perhaps an understated Yo-yo & Mack wedding. Daisy getting some sort of phone call or message to another Marvel property which will never eventuate.
Oh and Fitz and Simmons have been dead all along? The current Simmons is a robot.

At this point I could see them revisiting the alternate Battle for New York from endgame, just to work the Cop Sousa footage in somehow and then have some fun with it all (LMD Coulson taking the place of the real one in getting speared by Loki, perhaps?).

It could also explain why the snap never happened; The Thanos from their reality is the one who traveled back to the main MCU reality and got dusted there.

I'm guess they'll eventually get up to the current, or near current time, but by then things will be so hosed up it'll be totally different, maybe something like the framework?

I thought for a minute at the end there that Yo-Yo was going to speed out of the ship with her powers, then have it jump, at which point she'd have to return to where she was standing before which would cause her to ???

Also, I was pissed that they needed to destroy a rocket and did all these shenanigans on the ground when they're in a flying stealth missile boat. Just blow it up! Who cares if you give away your position. Go into the upper atmosphere, fire a missile from 100 miles away, and then move afterwards.

Also also, I think someone is going to be left behind during one of the jumps. Someone who is not a 30,000 year old cronicon.

I mean them giving themselves away is going to be immediately followed up next episodes. The chronicles were waiting for them to do just that and I don't think they're gonna be able to get away as easily as you seem to think.

I'm expecting them to somehow save Coulson from dying in the first Avengers movie, thus preventing him from going through TAHITI and preventing this group from forming.

It could pretty easily be done, just divert a younger Coulson elsewhere so he isn't on that ship or something.

Or just have LMD Coulson replace OG Coulson on the Helicarrier and have OG Coulson go back to the future with the rest of them.

Added bonus of LMD Coulson gets to prank Fury at the autopsy.

Since there wasn't any fallout for her during the EMP she probably isn't an LMD but they probably did something to her mind to block/remove her memories to keep from losing secrets if the Chronicoms kidnapped someone again. Enoch seemed to know exactly what was happening when Jemma mentioned that she was having trouble remembering things so it probably has to be periodically reset/updated so she doesn't forget things she's supposed to remember.

Daisy also seems to be someone that could easily be moved to the films. Disney seems to really like Chloe Bennet and she's voicing Quake in a lot of their cartoons and things. So I don't think they're really concerned about giving her a love interest to wrap up the series.

I mean, it is a repeat of a major part of Endgame, but yeah that'd be pretty compelling if they're confronted with a chance to change the timeline by time-hopping to around when Avengers happened, and instead they just need to let him die. It loses some drama because they aren't letting his permanent death happen, but it'd be interesting to see them have to choose not to warn Coulson about poo poo that's going to happen. Could be a fun thing if OG Coulson stumbles on LMD coulson, it's hard to make that scene not be entertaining.

Suppose they let real Coulson die in the Avengers, and TAHITI is just the LMD Coulson taking his place, so it's been LMD Coulson all along, living a loop.

It's gonna be something like, it turns out they're the ones who found his body after Loki (whom they just missed! By a matter of seconds!) offed him, and they're the ones who take OG Coulson to TAHITI.

On the other hand, it would be pretty funny if the show ended with them together, and then they brought just her into the movies and killed another of his relationships off-screen.

The snap or whatever affecting the cast would have killed this show.

There's a potentially good story about the cast dealing with the aftermath - which would have been apocalyptic -- but the idea of wiping out half the cast because of something that happened on another show -- the MCU is basically its own TV series at this point -- is terrible. It undermines the show's ability to be its own beast, and is dramatically unsatisfying.

The problem is Thanos would have to snap both Fitz and Simmons. If he left either alive, the other one would have figured out a way to beat him before the Avengers. If there's one thing this series has shown, it's that Fitz and Simmons can't be stopped when the other needs them.

Yeah, but she had a backup Fitz in deep space. Who, to get to, she (a) boostrapped human FTL capabilities and (b) made the timeline further incomprehensible. I'm convinced that, late in this season, one of them will be put in a position where they can get the other back and be together, but it will require genociding all Chronicoms everywhere (who are basically a refugee species) and losing their vast store of knowledge, and they won't hesitate for even a beat.

Their romance is terrifying, because the show and the performers have completely convinced me that there is absolutely no atrocity they would not commit, no law of nature they would not violate, and no obstacle they would not overcome for their love. Simmons playing Russian Roulette with drain cleaner was a high point of the show.
