Agents of SHIELD Brand New Day

A “Brand New Day” Before The End Of Agents Of SHIELD

All season, the Agents of SHIELD have been at a pretty significant disadvantage. Sybil the Predictor, a Chronicom that can see all of time and it’s infinite variances, has been informing those working against SHIELD what they’ll do. Sure, they’ve had moments that Sybil didn’t notice, but for the most part, the conclusion was known before the start. Of course, our team will never get up despite the odds are moving increasingly toward them losing everything.

Agents of SHIELD S7 ep 10 - Stolen

A Familiar Face “Stolen” From Us Returns To “SHIELD”

As it turns out, Jiaying wasn’t even what Malick and friends were after. They were looking to grab Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge), presumably to try to find Fitz (Iain De Caestecker). Ah, Fitz, who’s has an entire season stolen from him. Granted it’s behind the scenes reasons (De Caestecker has another acting job) why we have yet to see Fitz, but that doesn’t make it any less disappointing. ‘SHIELD’ is practically the story of how Fitz and Simmons reunite, though, just as it’s become a story of how Coulson will die. We know it will happen, and we hope it’s been worth the wait.

As I have Always Been

“As I Have Always Been” Fascinated With Time Travel

Daisy (Chloe Bennet) is our lucky looper. The Zephyr has made its way into a time storm and can’t get out. Each loop brings it closer and closer to demise. The only people who can fix the situation are Enoch (Joel Stoffer) and Jemma (Elizabeth Henstridge). They have it hard-wired not to help so as not to give away Fitz’s location though. Meanwhile, Coulson (Clark Gregg) can retain his memory and coaches Daisy on how to get closer to solving the problem.

Adapt Or Die Isn’t A Warning You Should Give The “Agents of SHIELD”

After a discussion with Sybil the Predictor (Tamara Taylor) that is more about Coulson’s speech than learning much, Coulson blows up the Chronicom hunter forms that were about to be awakened. Good news for the team, but we also apparently lose Coulson in the explosion. We did have a whole long conversation about him being able to come back from the dead, so I don’t think he’s gone, but it still makes for a good midseason rattle ’em up. Adapt or die indeed.

Out Of The Past

Agents Of SHIELD Bring Someone Out Of The Past

What is an LMD like you doing in a slightly altered past like this? “Out of the Past” is the film-noir tribute that the producers of “Agents of SHIELD” have probably wanted to do since one of them first mentioned time-travel. Fortunately, it’s a fun roll through the genre. It also packs a little more into the look at racism and sexism that “Alien Commies From The Future!” started. The future also gets a gift from the past that is pretty spoilery, so we’ll talk about that later.

The New Deal

“The New Deal” Brings Back “S.H.I.E.L.D.”

Still, it wouldn’t be the show we all love if there weren’t a lot of things frontloaded onto the season. I’m glad the show will have the ability to jump around the time streams. It’d be a bit much to get stuck in one place for 13 episodes. Plus, it’ll be fun to see the different Koenigs (Patton Oswald). Maybe, just maybe, we’ll even get some cross over from the big screen? I guess we’ll find out soon enough. Though with time travel, you never know.
