The Legends Of S.H.I.E.L.D. Director SP, Agent Lauren and Agent Michelle discuss the ABC television series Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. episode “As I Have Always Been,” some Marvel screen news of the week, and some listener feedback. The Agents debrief you on the deep meanings and throwbacks of the episode title, the science around a singularity, what the Time Loop rules are in this episode, that Daisy kiss with Sousa, that Sousa is a highlight of the season, the episode had the most amazing fight choreography we never saw, speculation on what Jemma saw when Diana was out of her head, and that the episode had upscaled classic Whedon storytelling with Enoch with another existential discussion with Lauren about LMD Coulson. Stay tuned after the credits for almost 4 minutes of bonus audio for you to enjoy!

I think we found the purpose of motorcycle # 3: hold up Daisy and LMD Coulson after Enoch whipped their asses.

This was my favorite episode of the season so far.  Amazing character development for Coulsonbot, Enoch, and Daisy, and amazing character moments for most of the cast.  Souza comparing Daisy to maybe the greatest person who ever lived without managing to say the name was cute, and I can't help but ship it.  Something to keep in mind is that Daisy has had quake powers for about 4 years, including weird time skips and jumps that the show has made.  As of 1983, Malick has had them for 7 years and counting.  So it should be interesting to see what he's done with his powers in the meantime and how the team takes him down.  Simmons breaking down when she got her memories back has to be a tease for a heartbreaking flashback episode, whenever it comes.  But at this point I can't feel entitled to anything beyond what the show is giving me.  Following these characters so far has been such a treat and I'm going to appreciate these last 4 episodes without bringing myself down with nitpicks.  

Until next time!
