Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

The season finale was awesome. It had some awesome moments, like Fury and Coulson just bantering at the raving Garrett, or Coulson just casually disintegrating Garrett as he's trying to make the cliche "villain isn't as dead as you thought" stuff. The stuff with Skye's Dad and Coulson's weird alien knowledge looks interesting. I'm really excited for season two, its going to be a long wait.

Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

I ablsolutely loved the "destroyer gun" and "I know what this does."

I noticed that Simmons kissed Fitz about 6 times but not on the kisser, he loves her and she thinks he is her little brother. This, plus brain damage can mean some strange changes for our little Fitzy next time around.

This was a great Finale. A real sense of closing up but leaves a lot of stuff to explore for next year. I can't wait for next season already.

I didn't know Fury worked for the Psi Cops.

So Garrett and Coulson both drew that mysterious diagram because both of them were injected with GH-325?

Well, "hypergraphia" was listed as one of the possible side-effects in that classified video Coulson sent Fury . . ..

Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

Is Fury not wearing the eyepatch because of ownership issues? Or because he's incognito.

Plus after they say the super soldiers will revert to normal when the centipede stuff is removed and their eye-bombs removed, they show Fury's missing eye. Was he an experimental super soldier?

Well it appears to be Kree writing, so the assumption that the "Guest" alien had some kind of information encoded right into it's DNA. How that can transpose itself into a human brain to be expressed via wall scribblings...well it's comic book logic. Plus crazy wall scribblings is an old trope for indicating deep or "divine" knowledge...and for being crazy...

So what are we thinking about the multiple Koenigs? Clones? Life model decoys? Or just boring normal human twins?

Oh and Calling it right now: Fitz is going to become Modok.

He burned it at the end of CA:TWS.

I thought the whole season was awesome, and the finale was just the perfect capper. Clark Gregg didn't disappoint me in any single episode. I watched it for Coulson. I got Coulson. Job well done.

I think Skye's parents were Skrull sleeper agents. The dead Kree was originally sent to root them out.

Just my guess...

Another thing I liked was Cybertek being some generic crap cube farm. Probably a little schadenfreude on my part.

Fitz seemed quite cognizant of his situation.

The scene at the end with Garrett was funny but was anyone else a little disappointed we missed out on a cool super villain?

My complete guess is that we'll get a "brain damaged" version of Fitz, that is a Fitz who is smart but not a genuis, much to his chagrin. It'll probably last half a season or so, before they encounter some kind of drug or alien device that will allow him to be restored to his normal self.

There's an MCU tie-in comic that shows him with the eyepatch during the Cold War, probably sometime in the '80s. Another tie-in comic has him say (in a situation where he's undercover, so it's not reliable) that he lost his eye in "the war." When asked which war, he said, "Take your pick."

Besides, SHIELD didn't know about the eye controller/bomb things until "Eye Spy." If Fury had had one, I kinda think they would've known.

I'm more confused about how it came about at all. Just before that scene, didn't they pack him up in some kind of locked coffin thing and drag him out of the room with a host of agents? The casual way Coulson dispatched of him didn't seem to fit either, especially if Garrett had escaped and killed all the agents that were transporting him to get back there.

Felt like it was supposed to be some kind of simulator or something to let Coulson vent, but... turned out it wasn't.

I suspect that scene was conceived and inserted after the fact. Probably would've been smoother by omitting the coffin scene, it plays like it was meant to replace it rather than follow it.

EDIT: watching it again, it's interesting that the coffin was there in that room. So maybe it could be rationalized the dead guys were actually Hydra agents who took him there to rebuild him. Maybe they died because Garrett is well, Garrett.

Most everybody's said my thoughts overall on this episode - truly excellent and I'm so excited for a season 2 now - but I wanted to specially note that FitzSimmons this episode... just... FitzSimmons this episode, damn. Those two knocked it out of the park for me.
