With this timeline restoration talk, I'm trying not to imagine Sousa slowly disappearing like Marty McFly. But I'm scared. - Kris

You can see during the flirting scene at the end of he ep that they are a gun holster like Jack Thompson wore. I guess when Simmons got taken he put it on to be ready for action. Before he got the new prostesis, he used a belt one on his right side so he could draw with his ...
right hand since his left was occupied with his crutch/cane might have made it hard to use his right hand to draw from a shoulder holster on his left side. I know nothing about guns so I am guessing.

I would prefer for Shield to turn the tables & go on the final offensive. They have the have the time travel device. They are off the Chronicoms time loop. How about a complete reset? Give back in time, before shield fell. Take out the coup players & save shield from disaster. Ending of the show: Have Jena & Fitz meet Daisy for the 1st time, at a party thrown by Enoch. They break up the conversation by bowing out. The have to get back to take care of their newborn, Deek. Enoch casually walks around, thanking other guests for attending. The Married couple Coulson & May. Etc.etc.etc.

This episode set me up perfectly for what I'm sure is going to be an amazing and terrible time next week.  There are moments in here that I'm sure will draw the usual lazy and tired criticisms of "filler," "nothing happening," and "can we just get to the next thing."   I would say that the character moments peppered all over were more than enough to make these segments enjoyable and worthwhile as someone who's cared about this team for years.  Daisy, Mack, and Souza all got their moments with each other that got smiles out of me; we got to reflect on May and Coulson and where they've gone; we got a small peak at what Fitzsimmons went through before the end of Season 6; all of these interactions are what I want before I have to say goodbye.  I love that Malick weren't able to break Simmons or Deke, and it was satisfying to see him start to lose it when his entitlement wasn't satiated.  Entitled people are kind of the worst, so how great is it that this threat we have, the one to defeat, is an embodiment of that?  
We've got a great finale coming for us with Shield literally being wiped off the map.  Most likely, Peggy Carter is dead, along with Howard Stark, Hank Pym, people who laid a foundation for the MCU.  We can no longer speculate that the new timeline being made this season is going to lead to Infinity War or Endgame or whatever.  This show is going to go out on its own terms and I really love that.
Until next time (the last time?)
