SB96 – S5E17 – The Honeymoon

SB96 – S5E17 – The Honeymoon

The adventure depicted in this week’s Agents of SHIELD episode, “The Honeymoon,” probably isn’t exactly the honeymoon Fitz and Simmons were hoping for. The theme running throughout “The Honeymoon” appears to be reckless actions or personal weakness, and for better or for worse, examples abound in each of the various storylines.

Join us for show news, commentary and analysis for “The Honeymoon,” Faith’s CoulSass moments, and our listener feedback segment! This week we talk about May’s tough love for Coulson, FitzSimmons’ need to reassure each other about their invincibility, Elena’s arm pain when going super-speed, Ruby’s impatience with Alex’s help, and Talbot’s surprising sleeper status.

SB95 – S5E16 – Inside Voices

SB95 – S5E16 – Inside Voices

Inside Voices” really seemed to break up the team in Agents of SHIELD, and we’re really wondering how this might lead to further disaster. With Coulson out in the wilderness with Talbot, Simmons and others off in a quinjet, May and Daisy in Zephyr One, and Mack and Deke stuck at the Lighthouse, things couldn’t be more divided.

Join us for show news, commentary and analysis for “Inside Voices,” Faith’s CoulSass moments, and our listener feedback segment! This week we talk about Simmons’ controversial choice to trick Mack, Fitz’s emotional reaction to her experiment, Robin’s reaction at seeing May again, Hale’s motivation for having Creel touch the gravitonium, Ruby’s rebellious streak that seems to have gotten the better of her, and much more! Read more…

SB94 – S5E15 – Rise and Shine

SB94 – S5E15 – Rise and Shine

“Rise and Shine” was just what the second half of Agents of SHIELD season 5 needed: a boost of back story and a motivation for what comes next. Could we be seeing the start of a SHIELD-HYDRA alliance against a common enemy? And what will be the change that prevents the time loop from happening all over again?

Join us for show news, commentary and analysis for “Rise and Shine,” Faith’s CoulSass moments, and our listener feedback segment! This week we talk about Hale’s history with HYDRA, von Strucker’s connection with Carl Creel, Whitehall’s plans for Hale and Ruby, Daisy’s decisions as the interim leader, Simmons’ surprising embrace of the invulnerability concept, and Fitz’s not-so-surprising rejection of the idea of Deke as his grandson. Read more…

SB93 – S5E14 – The Devil Complex

SB93 – S5E14 – The Devil Complex

The fear dimension plays tricks on us in this week’s episode of Agents of SHIELD entitled “The Devil Complex,” but deception lies elsewhere in the story as well when General Hale is brought onboard Zephyr One. With family relationships being revealed and with evidence mounting that the timeline still hasn’t been altered, the fractured team has a lot to deal with.

Join us for show news, commentary and analysis for The Devil Complex, Faith’s CoulSass moments, and our listener feedback segment! This week we talk about Fitz’s manifest duality, Elena’s continuing recovery, Mack’s over-protectiveness, Deke’s conversation with Jemma, Ivanov’s surprising return, Hale’s alien puppet master, and Daisy’s unavoidable role in what’s to come. Read more…

SB92 – S5E13 – Principia

SB92 – S5E13 – Principia

While “Principia” may be a set-up episode of Agents of SHIELD, the search for CyberTek is a rousing adventure to find a solution to the fear dimension rift, Elena’s missing arms, and perhaps even Coulson’s fatal condition. Can gravitonium and cybernetic parts fix all of their problems before General Hale finishes her team of… whatever it is she’s doing?

Join us for show news, commentary and analysis for “Principia,” Faith’s CoulSass moments, and our listener feedback segment! This week we talk about Ruby’s robotic nature, Alex Braun’s newfound powers, Deke’s unwitting grandpa jokes, Fitz’s short-tempered manner, Elena’s understandable despondence, and Daisy and May’s refusal to accept Coulson’s situation. Read more…

SB91 – S5E12 – The Real Deal

SB91 – S5E12 – The Real Deal

The 100th episode of Agents of SHIELD entitled “The Real Deal” did not disappoint! With plenty of emotional moments, happy and sad, this almost felt like a season (or series) finale. But there’s still plenty of story left to tell, and the stage is set for a remarkable second half of the season.

Join us for show news, commentary and analysis for “The Real Deal”, Faith’s CoulSass moments, and our listener feedback segment! This week we talk about the ups and downs of the so-called fear dimension, the return of Deathlok, the marriage of Fitzsimmons, the parentage of Deke, the positive attitude of Elena, the importance of symbols, and the reactions of May and Daisy to Coulson’s fate. Read more…

SB90 – S5E11 – All the Comforts of Home

SB90 – S5E11 – All the Comforts of Home

As Agents of SHIELD returns from hiatus, “All the Comforts of Home” returns to familiar territory in more ways than one. Although some wonderful new characters spice up the action in this episode, the military enemy is a track well trod on this show. What tricks does Agents of SHIELD still have up its sleeve to make General Hale and her unclear motives surprise us in this second half of the season?

Join us for show news, commentary and analysis for “All the Comforts of Home,” Faith’s CoulSass moments, and our listener feedback segment! This week we talk about Ruby’s peculiar powers, General Hale’s strange “plan B,” Noah’s different Chronocom approach, Deke’s surprising but welcome return, Elena’s tragic dismemberment, and more! Read more…

SB89 – S5E10 – Past Life

SB89 – S5E10 – Past Life

The first pod of Agents of SHIELD ends with lots of death and plenty of questions, and Past Life takes on multiple meanings as an episode title. Apparently our team has made it back to the past, but what does that mean for those left in the future? And has anything been put into place to change things this time around, or does it all center around Coulson’s mysterious illness?

Join us for show news, commentary and analysis for Past Life, Faith’s CoulSass moments, and our listener feedback segment! This week we talk about Elena’s horrible fate, Daisy’s self-sacrificial motives, Coulson’s big secret, Fitz’s gruesome kill tactics, Jemma’s amazing rescue, and much more. Read more…

SB88 – S5E9 – Best Laid Plans

SB88 – S5E9 – Best Laid Plans

The Best Laid Plans in this week’s Agents of SHIELD episode were anything but. Although Mack excelled at rallying the humans against Kasius, the Kree has a few tricks left up his sleeve. And the crew onboard the Zephyr went flying off on a wing and a prayer! What’s the deal with the gravitonium, and who the heck is Kasius’ so-called seer?

Join us for show news, commentary and analysis for Best Laid Plans, Faith’s CoulSass moments, and our listener feedback segment! This week we talk about May’s mom face, Fitz’s time loop despair, Deke’s decision-making time, Sinara’s fateful journey, Kasius’ god complex, Mack’s leadership skills, and more! Read more…

SB87 – S5E8 – The Last Day

SB87 – S5E8 – The Last Day

In one of the most brain-melting, heart-warming episodes of Agents of SHIELD yet, The Last Day gives us plenty of answers and leaves us with a thousand more questions. We attempt to break down the time loop in our discussion but also discuss those left in the Lighthouse, and we share our largest listener feedback segment so far this season.

Join us for show news, commentary and analysis for The Last Day, Faith’s CoulSass moments, and our listener feedback segment! This week we talk about Fitz’s pivotal dialogue, Kasius’ possible next move, Daisy’s true culpability, Voss’ troubling motives, May’s moment of motherhood, Deke’s possible parentage, and much more.
