Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

Wait, where again was the Bus coming from in the final minutes? Wasn't it coming from Thomas Nash's "secret" hideout in Pensacola, Florida and going to the Triskelion in D.C.? Cause it was nighttime when the Bus changed directions, but it was daytime in that ending preview scene where Fury was in D.C. in The Winter Soldier.

One of those stun rounds would have hit Fitz in the face if the glass wasn't there. Hard enough to score the glass! That CAN'T be healthy.
Yeah, that was why I discounted the talk about it being non-lethal. But upon rewatching it, I could see that the gun had the blue markings. If I'd been showrunner and wanted the rounds really to be night-night rounds, I wouldn't make it do that to the glass, but whatev.
She says that it's "an icer"... the bullet impacts aren't bullet impacts, its the ice bullets shattering on the glass. watch it again kids

edit: see the episode "Seeds"

Actually, the ICEr is an upgraded night-night gun, introduced in the episode "Yes Men" (see the episode "Yes Men"). The ICE part is just an acronym. Maybe it is just the cartridge shattering on the glass, but that doesn't make it any less confusing.

But, "kids"? Really?

I just rewatched it. Right, she called it an "icer" and it had the blue markings on it.

dansigal described what I meant perfectly so I have very little to add. I will say that I also try to avoid putting too much weight on television visuals because they don't have anywhere near the amount of time movies do to make sure things look as intended.
You're probably right. I just thought the placement of the impact shatters seemed quite deliberate.

Still, the logical problem on just what May thought was going to happen next had the glass not been in the way stands, but I suppose that's academic now.

Also, the Bus may not be remote accessible for flight path alteration. May, Coulson, Skye and Fitz are in the cargo area of the plane when all of a sudden it turns and heads for Hand's location. The one conveniently absent is Ward who just executed Nash for really no good reason. Ward is a trained field agent, he wouldn't be that emotional. His immediate execution and really weak reasoning for why he did it makes it easy to suspect him of being a traitor...
If Ward is working for Hand and flying the ship back, why would she order to kill him?

It was a non-lethal weapon, but she fired with the intent of hitting him in the chest and head, not just a round in the centre of mass. For someone with her skill and training, that certainly looked like it was meant as a kill shot.

Have they ever said what two doses of that toxin will do? Presumably there's a limit to what a body can take.
Haven't we seen the agents shoot others in the head before? Plus, Fitz shot that guy on the train multiple times. I think he designed it (with comic book rules) to be non-lethal in any case.

Maybe it was a flashback to while they were apprehending/killing the Clairvoyant. Also, they must have been taking Ward somewhere else (maybe the Sandbox).

Maybe May thinks Fitz is the bad guy. Her and Coulson are generally on the same wave length. While he was putting it all together, she may have been doing the same. She tries to report to Fury (considering she's on the good side) and Fitz cuts her connection? Her endgame would probably be interrogation. From her point of view, Fitz had no reason to fiddle with those wires in the first place.

Very cool poster for next week's Agents of SHIELD episode by comicbook artist Mike Del Mundo

Apparently, each of the remaining episodes will have a poster done by a well-known Marvel artist, with this being the first. There's no word on who will provide the rest of them, but they're set to hit every Thursday until the season one finale. Pretty cool idea, eh?

Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

Well, at least metaphorically so.

More details

How long was this kind of initiative planned? Or did you always have a plan to introduce something like this in some way, even if it wasn’t necessarily through art?
At the beginning of the season, in the same way that the writers room figures out what the arc of the season is going to be, and you pitch ideas and you have dreams and hopes, the marketing and the publicity and the creative support team is also doing that, and they’re coming up with all kinds of different ideas. Some of them come to fruition and some of them don’t, but the idea to pull something like this off takes some planning and some time. And so the idea has been to do something like this for a very long time, and for me as a person — I was in art design before I became a writer, and I love comics and art — it’s been a great boon to what we do, having it memorialized this way. It’s funny, you’ll find TV writers who’ve got their name on a big multimillion dollar episode, and then they see someone else who wrote a comic with their name on it, and we all just want to write a comic. We all just want a comic we can own that has our name on it. Because the TV screen is so ephemeral, but to have a comic that you wrote, or to have a poster that commemorates an episode that you wrote, is pretty cool. So we’re all looking forward to that.

Wondering if Mr. Mandel will be designing one of those weekly promo posters?

No, but we've been seeing his work on all those screens since episode one. Figure he'd be good for at least one poster design.

Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

I'm eager to see Skye's S.H.I.E.L.D. identification and find out what her surname is. I think of this show and Coulson, May, Ward, Fitz, and Simmons in my head but just "Skye" for Skye. It bothers me.

I don't think she's entirely sure of her own birthdate yet, right?

It's possible that's a plot twist. I think it's been said that Skye isn't her real name.

Her badge doesn't have anything written on it, according to screencaps, though.
