The Legends Of S.H.I.E.L.D. Director Stargate Pioneer and Consultant Michelle discuss the seventh and penultimate The Defenders episode “Fish In The Jailhouse.” The Agents debrief you on why a drinking game about Danny Rand would fail, which superhero punched a hole in the wall, how Danny actually beat the dragon, why Jessica was the only superhero cuffed, some much needed Elektra background, their takes on just how good the end fight was, and how they rate the Defenders as a team.
