    I just think it's hard having an episode on April 29 that takes place before TWS, but I did suggest that as a possibility.

    The timing of air dates and release date - and the content of the trailers - does suggest that they're going to need far more for build-up and/or follow-up to The Winter Soldier than what they did for The Dark World.

    Well, the AoS team is pretty independent. It's not like they go into a main office every day (like, say, NCIS)---the plane is a bubble, basically.

    So this is the confirmed airing order from here on out?
    Seems that while it pains us to have the Olympic break that we are going to essentially have 9 weeks of new episodes with only the April 4 buffer.

    This was actually a good episode. As I said, Skey is Jessica Drew. They just keep pointing to it more and more. This article goes into detail.

    ^ I can't click on the link at work. It seems weird that she would be Jessica Drew to me, but I'll have to wait until I get home to see their arguments. I have seen someone else make the suggestion before as well.

    I have only the trailer to go by, but it seems that there's issues of internal SHIELD politics where some individuals are, at a minimum, misguidedly oppressive. It seems that Captain America would tear down that whole part of SHIELD. Like I said, I don't know if that's true or not, but it's the same themes the show is playing with. If they suddenly can't kidnap people and drop them off at a secret SHIELD prison, that's pretty big news and would likely be a movie spoiler. Like I said, I'm just speculating, but I would not be surprised.

    I'm just speculating. Certainly, it can't end earlier than that date, though.

    Yeah, I saw the link. I can't click on it at work so I'll have to wait until I get home to see their arguments. I thought that was crystal clear from my post. :confused:

    Probably thinking something prevented you from clicking on the link instead of your work not allowing you to visit the linked site.

    If Skye were to turn out to be "someone", for some reason, I keep thinking the name "Mantis".

    Nah, she never refers to herself as "This one".

    But just imagine the special sweeps week episode where she marries a tree!

    King George married a tree.

    Skye's secret origin involved priests and temples and... Could Thanos have had a third daughter?

    The train looked american to me. The engine shown seemed to be of this type: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/EMD_F7 , which to my eyes looks very "american".

    I remember reading in Trains Magazine a year or two back about a specialty company that rented out train consists to film companies. Wishing I could remember the name of the company...

    Learning something new every day - I'd never heard "consist" in this context before. Looked it up. You'd think with my family background (great-grandfather was a designer at Rogers Locomotive in Paterson NJ, uncle was a model railroader...) I'd have heard it before.

    I blame Branchline for teaching me that particular usage.
