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!

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…

SB70 – S4E12 – Hot Potato Soup

SB70 – S4E12 – Hot Potato Soup

The return of Agent(s) Koenig was the highlight of this week’s Agents of SHIELD episode, Hot Potato Soup. With the Darkhold falling back into the wrong hands, we’re introduced to two more potential villains moving forward: the Superior and Fitz’s father. But at least we got a “Philinda” kiss! Kind of…

Join us for show news, commentary and analysis for Hot Potato Soup, Faith’s CoulSass Report, and our listener feedback segment! This week we talk about LMD Radcliffe’s manipulation of Fitz, Mack’s continued hot-headedness, Koenig’s Quake-worship, the mysterious nature of LT Koenig, and the potential fallout for Coulson upon realizng LMD May’s true nature. Read more…

SB69 – S4E11 – Wake Up

SB69 – S4E11 – Wake Up

The title of this week’s Agents of SHIELD episode, Wake Up, obviously refers to May’s attempt to break out of her simulation, but could it also refer to Coulson’s misguided attempt to circumvent the political realities of their new situation? Could Fitz’s epiphany be a sort of wake up call as well? It could refer to a lot of things!

Join us for show news, commentary and analysis for Wake Up, Faith’s CoulSass moments, and our listener feedback segment! This week we talk about the true nature of LMD May’s consciousness, the secretive nature of Mack, the discovery of Fitz’s continued deception, the perception of others that Coulson has feelings for May, and the continuing question of the identity of “the Superior.” Read more…

SB68 – S4E10 – The Patriot

SB68 – S4E10 – The Patriot

A secret is revealed in this week’s Agents of SHIELD episode entitled The Patriot. How will the dynamic change now that Phil is calling the shots? And oh my goodness, what will LMD May do with the discovery of her true nature? Dave’s got a crackpot theory about that one that you won’t want to miss!

Join us for show news, commentary and analysis for The Patriot, Faith’s CoulSass moments, and our listener feedback segment! This week we talk about the unfathomable duplicity of Fitz, the emotional nature of Aida 2, the questioned realities of both Mays, the possible redemption arc now in store for Mace, and much more! Read more…

SB67 – S4E9 – Broken Promises

SB67 – S4E9 – Broken Promises

The LMD arc begins in earnest with Broken Promises, an episode the explores the possibility of an AI suddenly achieving consciousness via the Darkhold. Or is it all just an elaborate ploy based on the ending we saw? Along with the return of Senator Nadeer and her brother, the stories this week drew us right back in after the long Agents of SHIELD hiatus!

Join us for show news, commentary and analysis for Broken Promises, Faith’s CoulSass moments, and our listener feedback segment! This week we talk about Jemma and Daisy teaming up, the ramifications of having LMD May in the mix, the possible manipulation of Fitz by Radcliffe, the true nature of Vijay Nadeer’s powers, and much more! Read more…

SB66 – S4E8 – The Laws of Inferno Dynamics

SB66 – S4E8 – The Laws of Inferno Dynamics

As the winter finale of Agents of SHIELD, The Laws of Inferno Dynamics brought a lot of story arcs to a head, and we’re left wondering where the LMD storyline will continue moving forward. Are Aida’s intentions good in her own mind, or has the Darkhold gotten its tendrils into her? Is Eli gone for good, and if Robbie’s not done as Coulson suggests, how will he get back this time? And then, of course, there’s May…

Join us for show news, commentary and analysis for The Laws of Inferno Dynamics, Faith’s CoulSass moments, and our listener feedback segment! This week we talk about the awesome teamwork in the final takedown of Eli, the dynamic between Director Mace and former Director Coulson, the subtle way in which Mack and Elena have been brought together, the satisfying manner in which Daisy was brought back to the team, and much more! Read more…

SB65 – S4E7 – Deals With Our Devils

SB65 – S4E7 – Deals With Our Devils

What a way to return from the long hiatus! Deals With Our Devils knocked it out of the park giving us a closer look at the Ghost Rider, a trippy multiple perspective narrative, and the totally unexpected Aida reveal! Can any good come from that epilogue?

Join us for show news, commentary and analysis for Deals With Our Devils, Faith’s CoulSass moments, and our listener feedback segment! This week we talk about Robbie’s promise to Ghost Rider, Mack’s disobedience under infuence, May’s uncharacteristically emotional decision-making, and the innovative filming style of this episode. Read more…

SB64 – S4E6 – The Good Samaritan

SB64 – S4E6 – The Good Samaritan

Who is the good Samaritan in The Good Samaritan? Did Agents of SHIELD just reference Johnny Blaze from the Ghostrider comics? Before the November hiatus, the series almost seems to come to a sort of Act 1 finale as the last of the ghost crew is disposed of and the truth about Uncle Eli comes to light. So what’s in store for the Darkhold and Ghost Rider now, and what happened to Coulson, Fitz, and Robbie in the end?

Join us for show news, commentary and analysis for The Good Samaritan, Faith’s CoulSass moments, and our listener feedback segment! This week we talk about Robbie’s lingering guilt, Gabe’s reaction to the truth, Jemma’s secret mission, Mace’s stern but understandable approach, Coulson’s culpability, and the over-arching issue of trust.
