It's going along fairly well...

Spoiler for Hidden:
Not sure where they are heading with the FitzSimmons stuff.

And I really hope ...
Spoiler for Hidden:
Mac isn't dead
because he's one of my favorite new characters.

Spoiler for Hidden:
Well some of my slash-happy friends insist that she is a lebsian and they, in their ship-happy glasses, saw all sorts of subtext between her and skye... and frankly, I am beginning to get the impression they are not entirely wrong?

Having just binge-watched the whole thing, I got the impression that Simmons wasn't even saying she wasn't interested in Fitz, it was just that she had about five seconds of "Oh! Hmm...", then nine days of "Oh crap he's going to die", then months of "He's so different now and I don't know how to help him", and she never really had a chance to process what the heck she felt about it all. And now Fitz wants to run away to the garage to hide. She might actually be up for a relationship, but how do you figure it out in the middle of all that?

SHIELD returns!

Things I can comment without feeling the need to be spoilerish: Skye's father is a jerk. They are definitely pushing the whole "Inhumans as Mutants" thing.

Spoiler for Hidden:
Fitz protecting Skye from Simmons is a nice touch.

Fantastic episode.  The only disappointing thing for me is that Raina is no longer absolutely gorgeous.  It's good to have some more super powered characters but extra eye candy doesn't hurt either.  I suppose she might learn to transform.

As for Bobbi and Mac
Spoiler for Hidden:
I'm thinking S.W.O.R.D.  It would be a good way to integrate them into the MCU without needing to go full Skrull/Kree invasion.

I've heard some theories that Bobbi and Mack

Spoiler for Hidden:
are actually agents for a rival faction of SHIELD that doesn't really love Fury appointing Coulson to the post, and wants to set themselves up as the "real" SHIELD. Which kind of makes sense--I mean, Fury was in charge of a lot of stuff that went south, and someone making a clean break with that style of leadership might want to go elsewhere instead of following the guy who's Fury's handpicked choice and who was giving a lot of cryptic and/or insane orders the last few months that got half a dozen or so agents killed. I mean, sure, we all know what Coulson was up to, but to someone outside the base, it might look like he's a nutbag.

Also? Kyle MacLachlan is soooooooo good in this. "It's a lifelong dream. It's life long." "Then don't." SO GOOD.

I like that a lot, but her reaction to all this seemed out of place.

Spoiler for Hidden:
He's actually not enough of a jerk. Comics Hyde tortured Jarvis almost to death (and the Black Knight, but he probably had it coming).

And wouldn't be an awful twist to have Fitz as a Hydra mole.  Feinting his condition, "protecting" Daisy until he could hand her over to Hydra.  Not actually expecting that to happen.  Maybe.

At this point:

Spoiler for Hidden:
I don't expect any further big revelations about "so-and-so is a HYDRA mole", simply because they'd have to explain why this person was a HYDRA mole in SHIELD's last secret base reporting directly to the new Director of SHIELD...and hasn't just ordered an airstrike or something. HYDRA has such a huge manpower advantage right now that if they knew where Coulson's team was, they would just straight up overwhelm them with soldiers. There's no advantage they could gain from keeping it a secret and gathering intelligence that could possibly be any greater than the advantage gained from capturing/killing everyone in the base and taking all their stuff. So anyone they've invited into the base either isn't HYDRA, or is holding the Idiot Ball on a level that would absolutely wreck the show. And I feel like the writers know that, so we won't see any surprise "Hail HYDRA" revelations like we got last season. I'm not saying I don't expect any more traitors...just no more HYDRA traitors.

I checked on Monday night's assertion that there was a "big" moon on July 2, 1988, in case they're lying to Skye, and I am impressed. According to two different sources, the moon was just three days past full, so it would still have been mostly lit, and it was at perigee (closest approach to Earth). So it would, in fact, have looked bigger than usual. Someone really did their homework.

Anyone else notice the giant Chekhov's Gun with the carrier?  Mockingbird was sent to scuttle it to keep whatever it's carrying from falling into Hydra's hands.

Could whatever it is be the reason for all the anti-alien/power fear from the Real SHIELD Agents of the Atlantic?

Heh. I know the animal.  I was unfamiliar with the reference in Marvel comics.

Kinda late to the discussion here, but anyone catch the reference Simmons made to the obscure character Hellcow back when she was undercover? It was pretty subtle, but I felt the need to Google it and sure enough there was a vampire cow named Hellcow in the comics. I've caught a couple references like that but I wonder how many I've missed.

On other news, Bobby and Hunter are getting a spin-off series. Curious to see where it goes :D

I've been loving the Inhumans stuff so far. This seems like a good way to bring in the mutants without incurring the wrath of Fox. Also there is an Inhumans movie scheduled for 2019, and we will theoretically be able to skip all the origin story because Agents of Shield will have had enough chance to cover that for YEARS by that point. Pretty cool.

A bit odd that there's this whole compound of inhumans led by skye's mom who seem to have no connection to any of the inhumans from the comics other than having access to terrigen mists and knowing the history. maybe it's like rotc to the great refuge's army.
