Correction to statements in the podcast: Despite their multiple credits on Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. Nina Lopez-Corrado and the Zuckerman sisters had worked together only once before on the 6th season episode “The Sign” (S06E12)


Lauren mentioned the “Barney And Betty Hill” Close encounter. If you’d like to know more this is a great link:


Lauren also quoted Venture Bros during the show. “We are now calibrating …. The nozzle.”


ABC announced Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. cancellation on July 18th, 2019 before this final San Diego ComicCon Panel on July 19th, 2019.


Agents OF S.H.I.E.L.D. season 7 was filmed mostly before their cancellation announcement:

“The final season was ordered in November 2018, ahead of the sixth season premiere, and filming took place from February to July 2019”


Ghostrider’s return teased


FEEDBACK [42:11]





#AgentsofSHIELD From the recap, Daisy ordering Deke to take the shot, how did yo see it? Her being so ruthless so no new General Talbot would be created? I am still against her action.



In order for this to work, FitzSimmons will need to give him a badass leg like YoYo and her new arm prosthetics. Pretty sure he could not be an active duty police officer as an amputee.

(thanks for reading my feedback on air! This one is longer, so you don't have to do the same this week, but feel free!  TLDR: Loved it)


-I'm still processing, but this was maybe my favorite episode in years.  It mixed everything good about the older, mission-oriented episodes of Shield with all the threats and tools that have been piling up in the last few seasons. 


-I like that they brought Souza in as an obstacle at first, but it'll be fun to hopefully have him allied with the team in later episodes.  The line "She couldn't stay with Rick; she had to go with Victor" really gave me vibes of what I'm sure Souza experienced when Cap showed up to get Peggy back - in whatever timeline that would've happened in.  I do like that he was on to Hydra infiltrating Shield all the way back here in '55, although I wonder if that means he was one of the Winter Soldier's earliest victims offscreen. 


-Simmons getting her Agent Carter on was fun, and it makes sense that in this age where word of mouth was bigger than anything else, she would be able to get away with it until running into someone who actually knew Peggy.  She gets less and less robotic in every episode since the season 6 finale, but then again, Coulson isn't exactly robotic either, so I'm still Team-LMD-Fitzsimmons.


-Other things I enjoyed:


     -Simmons finding out where in time they are with the radio.  Seems like something I would have done.


     -the deeper look into the past's white supremacy and the line "stupid white privilege"


     -the continued storyline of Daisy getting opportunities to destroy the organization that turned both her parents into monsters


     -the aftereffects of season 6 on May and Yoyo


     -the idea that EMPs are the best weapon against chronicoms (sidenote: AIDA had EMP-proof batteries even before Radcliffe got ahold of the Darkhold.  Why are the Chronicoms not as smart as Radcliffe?????)


All in all, it was a great and fun episode, and exactly the kind of content I wanted from this season.  Can't wait to see where the Coulson cliffhanger leads and how they get him back from Shield before that ripple turns into a wave. 


Until next time, true believers.  Excelsior!
