SB80 – S4E22 – World’s End

SB80 – S4E22 – World’s End

It’s a world’s end for the Framework in the Agents of SHIELD season finale, World’s End, and the rescue of the remaining team members was only half of the amazing story. With the battle against Ophelia coming to a close, there’s still plenty of mess to clean-up with regard to the Darkhold and the PR problems for inhumans and SHIELD itself.

Join us for show news, commentary and analysis for World’s End, Faith’s CoulSass moments, and our listener feedback segment! This week we talk about Mackelena, Philinda, and Fitzsimmons, of course, but also Radcliffe’s heroic end, Ivanov’s hanging threads, Talbot’s brush with death, Coulson’s deal with Ghost Rider, Daisy’s inspirational speech, and that completely baffling ending! Read more…

SB79 – S4E21 – The Return

SB79 – S4E21 – The Return

Who has time to confront all these new feelings when you’re trying to escape with your life? That question could apply to Ophelia as easily as Fitz or Elena or Coulson or anyone else in the latest Agents of SHIELD episode, The Return. Clearly, the show is pivoting towards a season finale that surprisingly involves Ghost Rider. How will it end, and what will they leave for season 5, now that a renewal has been assured?

Join us for show news, commentary and analysis for The Return, Faith’s CoulSass moments, and our listener feedback segment! This week we talk about Fitz’s mixed motivations, Simmons’ touching forgiveness, Elena’s rash but understandable decision, Talbot’s wonderful but contentious return, Coulson’s conflicted feelings, and much more. Read more…

SB78 – S4E20 – Farewell, Cruel World

SB78 – S4E20 – Farewell, Cruel World

We finally escape the Framework in the appropriately titled episode of Agents of SHIELD, Farewell, Cruel World, in which not everyone makes it out. The choices that were made along the way, the relationships between many of the characters, and the consequences of the choices that they’ve made are really the core of this great episode leading into the season 4 finale.

Join us for show news, commentary and analysis for Farewell, Cruel World, Faith’s CoulSass moments, and our listener feedback segment! This week we talk about Mack’s fateful choice, Daisy’s surprising sympathy of Trip and Mack, Simmons’ crucial mistake, Aida’s unexpected powers, and Radcliffe’s questionable nobility. Read more…

SB77 – S4E19 – All the Madame’s Men

SB77 – S4E19 – All the Madame’s Men

Has an uprising begun in the Framework is the latest Agents of SHIELD episode, All the Madame’s Men? It certainly seems that way as Coulson inspiringly takes to the airwaves while Madame Hydra is down for the count. With Daisy’s quake powers back in play and May back on the right team, the tide could certainly be turning as we get closer to the season 4 finale.

Join us for show news, commentary and analysis for All the Madame’s Men, Faith’s CoulSass moments, and our listener feedback segment! This week we talk about how Project Looking Glass might work, what closure Ward might achieve, where May’s and Coulson’s awakenings might originate, whether Fitz is irredeemable, and who else might be able to come back to reality besides Aida. Read more…

SB76 – S4E18 – No Regrets

SB76 – S4E18 – No Regrets

Considering it was called No Regrets, we certainly did learn a lot about Fitz’s regret in this week’s Agents of SHIELD episode. And with the highs: seeing Mack back with the team, getting a surprise appearance from Trip; there were the lows: losing a valued member of the team that helped define season 4.

Join us for show news, commentary and analysis for No Regrets, Faith’s CoulSass moments, and our listener feedback segment! This week we talk about Jemma’s wavering resolve, Ward’s increasing perceptiveness, Mace’s heroic actions, May’s surprising turn, Fitz’s relationship with his father, and the continuing mystery of Aida’s true intentions. Read more…

SB75 – S4E17 – Identity and Change

SB75 – S4E17 – Identity and Change

The Agents of Hydra pod continues in the latest Agents of SHIELD episode, Identity and Change, which finds Daisy and Jemma hooking up with another familiar face. Thank goodness Coulson is on board, but surely there will be consequences for the actions of May and Fitz should they ever awaken! Meanwhile we’re still trying to decide what Aida’s real motivations are.

Join us for show news, commentary and analysis for Identity and Change, the return of Faith’s CoulSass moments, and our listener feedback segment! This week we talk about the ironic life choices of Mack, the beautiful nerdiness of Coulson, the surprising reappearance of Mace, and the understandable shock resulting from Fitz’s actions. We can’t possibly predict where things are headed next! Read more…

SB74 – S4E16 – What If…

SB74 – S4E16 – What If…

We’re back from hiatus, and with What If… it’s almost like we’re talking about a different show other than Agents of SHIELD! With Jemma and Daisy experiencing the Framework in very different ways, we quickly got a picture of the world we’ll be living in up until the finale. And then of course, there’s the return of Brett Dalton as Grant Ward – awesome!

Join us for show news, commentary and analysis for What If… and our listener feedback segment – sorry, no CoulSass Report this week! Coulson was… not himself. This week we talk about Fitz’s new personality, May’s continued grimness, Coulson’s slow awakening, Ward’s status within Hydra, and the difficulty Jemma and Daisy will have completing their mission. Read more…

SB73 – S4E15 – Self Control

SB73 – S4E15 – Self Control

Another midseason finale of sorts for Agents of SHIELD with Self Control, and we have a LOT of questions, especially with the vignettes we saw of those who are living their lives in The Framework. A trio of heart-wrenching emotional scenes really had the waterworks going for most of the audience, and the next “pod” is sure to be something completely unexpected, not the least of which is the return of a certain twice-dead character.

Join us for show news, commentary and analysis for Self Control, a week off from Faith’s CoulSass moments (no sass!), and our listener feedback segment! This week we talk about Aida’s reasons for wanting emotions, the regrets that may be determining the shape of The Framework, the great fight scene between Daisy and Mace, the suspicions about who was an LMD and who wasn’t, and the possible future for many characters from Ivanov in his new body to Simmons in her possibly dead avatar! Read more…

SB72 – S4E14 – The Man Behind the Shield

SB72 – S4E14 – The Man Behind the Shield

The LMD arc is heating up for its ultimate conclusion in this week’s Agents of SHIELD episode entitled The Man Behind the Shield. While Radcliffe goes off to the Framework presumably to be with Agnes, Aida is left with the dirty work alongside (or perhaps in opposition to) the Superior. With the big reveal at the end, who will end up on top, and how will we get there in only one episode?

Join us for show news, commentary and analysis for The Man Behind the Shield, Faith’s CoulSass moments, and our listener feedback segment! This week we talk about that wonderful flashback for Philinda shippers, the increasingly abrasive Mack, the shifting motivations of Ivanov, the ultimate sass of Coulson, the adjustment of our theories surrounding Aida, and our guesses about the ultimate fate of Fitz and Simmons as they take on four LMDs. Read more…

SB71 – S4E13 – BOOM

SB71 – S4E13 – BOOM

A new villain takes over for an old and a new Inhuman shows up in an unexpected place in the latest Agents of SHIELD episode entitled simply BOOM. We have a few bones to pick with Mack and with a few moves the veteran agents botched, but we couldn’t get enough of Aida, Agnes, and the implications for Radcliffe, May, and Coulson. We may even *gasp* disagree about Aida’s supposedly emotional reactions.

Join us for show news, commentary and analysis for BOOM, Faith’s CoulSass moments, and our listener feedback segment! This week we talk about the Framework, the necklace (you know the one), the new Inhuman, the reading of the Darkhold, not giving up on May, and much more! Read more…
