“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.

“Know Your Onions” Adds A Few Layers To “Agents Of SHIELD”

And then that was it for the 1930s. The Chronicoms move on with SHIELD hot on their trail. It will undoubtedly come into play that Enoch was left behind. He ends up working with Koenig (Patton Oswald), possibly beginning an explanation as to why there are so many Koenigs in the future. Could Koenig be a new Chronicom himself? Could it be him that is ultimately responsible for the continued existence of SHIELD? “Know Your Onions” doesn’t tell us, but we’ll find out if he pops up in the next time destination.

The Agents Are On A Collision Course As The Shrike Storyline Comes Together

Reviewing part one of a two-part episode always feels a bit empty.  Questions that are raised will undoubtedly be answered in part two, and the reactions you have might be unjustified by then.  And of course, while the episode is probably action packed – you do have to get viewers back for part two – […]
