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 “The Totally Excellent Adventures of Mack and the D.” The Agents debrief you on the multitudes of 80’s tropes in the episode including horror 80’s deaths with all the blood, how devastated Mack is, why Deke doesn’t know about cocaine, the non-A-Team Deke Squad “Cover” Band, speculation of what is controlling the time jumps now, how Sybil and Coulson survived, some early computer game references, Coulson as Max Headroom inside the planning circle, how Uncle Deke’s heart brought the Macks back together, our new 1983 S.H.I.E.L.D. team, Yo-Yo and Mack’s reunion and how it differed from May and Coulson’s reunion, and Nathaniel Malick’s return to the show. Also, the agents give some predictions for the rest of the season. Stay tuned after the credits for 6 minutes of post credit scenes, outtakes and some behind the scenes moments for you to enjoy!
