              Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Final Season Premiere Recap: A Blast in the Past

              By Matt Webb Mitovich / May 27 2020

              Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. opened its final season with the team getting accustomed to a new time period, new clothes, new insides and new appendages, before brushing up against an all-too-familiar threat.

              Following a prologue in which the Chronicom hunters “erased” and stole the faces of three cops in 1931 New York City, Daisy and Mack aboard the suped-up Zephyr got from Simmons the 411 on the new Coulson, who was built using Chronicom hardware and thus is the most advanced LMD ever. Before Mack can express his hesitation, Daisy slams her hand down on the “ON” button and powers up Coulson. Since he was built using the last available brain scan from the Framework, two years’ worth of updates start flooding his noggin, all while he also tries to understand his new state/rebirth. It’s all too much for Mack, as well, who powers down Coulson and makes clear that to use him or not is a director-level decision.

              Asked to catch everyone up, Simmons explains that the Zephyr followed a time “tide” left by the Chronicoms — who are out to eliminate SHIELD from history — leading to when and where they are now. Simmons unveils the new command center, re-introduces Enoch to everyone, reports that the nearly killed May is recuperating in some sort of chamber, and then asserts that it is too dangerous for anyone to know where Fitz is. Using radios for comms and after sending Deke out for appropriate threads (and after taking the purple out of someone’s hair), Mack, Coulson, Daisy and Deke head into the city, where Deke explains his take on “time streams” — saying that if they don’t make too much of a ripple, they shouldn’t affect history.

              Investigating the “erasures” of the three cops, the team flash lame badges printed by Deke and pose as members of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. Stepping into the crime scene, Daisy meets some resistance by a flatfoot who wonders aloud why she isn’t home with a husband… and needless to say, she puts him in his place. Surveying the booze left behind by a killed bootlegger, Coulson spies a swordfish symbol, which reminds him of a NYC speakeasy he heard of from the SSR era. Sure enough, said watering hole is still there, and Mack and Coulson get in using the “swordfish” password. But it isn’t too long before these strangers say the wrong thing and end up on the wrong end of the barkeep’s shotgun.

              Back at the crime scene, Deke is slowly but surely running diagnostics to find out what the killed cops looked like when the “Chronicops” show up. Two trick Daisy into going out back, where a big brawl ensues. Deke meanwhile holds his own inside, by jabbing his opponent with the DNA gizmo. After Daisy deals her final foe a crushing blow, Deke hotwires a jalopy and drives them off to the Zephyr, with one KO’d cop in the truck bed. Meanwhile aboard the Zephyr, Jemma is happy to inform Yo-Yo that 1) any remnant shrike material is breaking down inside her body and 2) she whipped up a New pair of state-of-the-art, arm-like arms (in part because the 1930s won’t take kindly to robotics!). Yo-Yo is hesitant to put them on, for fear it’d look like she is ignoring her past/what she has been through (“It’s who I am, and I’m not ashamed”), but she later gives them a spin and likes what she feels.

              Back at the speakeasy, Coulson bravely and adroitly disarms the barkeep and explains that they have an interest in who whacked their delivery man, Jimmy Bottles. Coulson asks to see the man in charge, and out comes Ernest Koenig, who is a bit vexed to see his fellas laid out by the two strangers. Coulson explains that there is “a new gang in town,” of ruthless killers, and they want to take them out. When Koenig shares that he’s supplying the booze for a shindig that night — honoring visiting New York Governor Franklin Delano Roosevelt — Coulson surmises that the Chronicoms are out to kill the man who will one day appoint the SSR.

              While Simmons works to pump the Chronicop that Daisy delivered for intel (by flooding his limited bandwith with nonsense data), Coulson, Mack, Daisy and Deke work the party for FDR, wondering when the Chronicoms will make their move. When they see FDR get up to leave via a service entrance, they assume the time is now… only to realize FDR is not in any danger as they frantically race to his side. The Chronicop aboard the Zephyr meanwhile blurts out the name “Freddy” — as in the orphaned speakeasy staffer that Koenig years ago gave a job to, and who is in the midst of being lured into a back area by a mysterious brunette. This woman says that she and Freddy’s “powerful” father once worked together, and if he pulls off a job for her — by delivering a set of vials containing “the future” —- his “family glory will be restored.”

              Just then, the Chronicops show up and put a bullet into the woman. Before they can pop Freddy/”pull the thread,” Daisy shows up and drags the Chroncoms into the kitchen for a Quake-tastic fight, with superpowered LMD Coulson joining in. After besting the baddies and clearing out, Coulson lugs the injured woman into Koenig’s bar, asking why the new gang is after Freddy. Koenig has no idea, but references the lad’s father, “Old Man Malick,” at which point Coulson and Daisy realize that Freddy will be HYDRA co-founder Gideon Malick’s father. Meaning, the Chronicoms aim to end SHIELD by eliminating the need for it. Meaning, in order to save S.H.I.E.L.D., they will need to save HYDRA.

              “Great,” huffs Daisy.

              In the “bonus” scene, we see Enoch going to check on May… except the healing chamber is unexpectedly empty! As Enoch walks away, lamenting his screw-up, we see that May is lurking in the rafters above, looking a bit… mad.


              • Saw the Season 7 premiere:

                Great performance by Clark Gregg catching up on LMD Coulson's lost two years and reaction to not really being himself. Also nice to have Patton back

                Really enjoyed the kitchen fight.

                Simmons has gotten really comfortable with interrogation torture hasn't she?

                I enjoyed the banter with LMD Coulson/Mack and Daisy Deke

                Knew it was tied to Hydra from the promos, I wonder how long we'll be in the 30's and what other time periods we'll see

                No Fitz. I think Ian missed a few episodes because he had another project?

                Is May still just in battle mode or did she somehow come back "wrong?"

                I heard a spoiler list that sounds somewhat plausible for the season, I can PM it if anyone wants? I don't know if I believe it all, and there was a separate obviously fake one going around, but these spoilers do have a few callbacks and tie ins to another Marvel show. Much like how SHIELD ended up tying to Runaways in a way during their Season 3

                  Marvel's Agents of SHIELD Season 7, Episode 1: 'The New Deal' Premiere Review

                  Serve the Serpents.

                  By Matt Fowler
                  Posted: 28 May 2020

                  Warning: Full spoilers for the final season premiere of Marvel's Agents of SHIELD follow.

                  The official end of the Marvel Television era is upon us as Agents of SHIELD, which was once the MCU's heavily-hyped TV flagship, kicks off its farewell season with, appropriately, a storyline that's almost totally untethered from the overall goings-on in the Marvel-verse - so much so that everything starts with a rollicking romp back to 1931 for a few time travel shenanigans.

                  Obviously, the story still involves SHIELD, and thus Hydra (thanks to the reveal that the Chronicoms are out to eliminate Hydra from forming so that - er - SHIELD never forms?), but it's still all nestled within the show's insulated Hydra mythology (Gideon Malick, Maveth, etc) that doesn't veer too close to the MCU's big screen storylines, and the Chronicoms, which were beings created for the series back at the tail end of Season 4. The draw here, in the show's sunset season, are the characters we've been following for almost a decade. Anyone still on board with the show is watching because of Quake, May, Coulson, and the rest of this bizarre, unstuck-in-spacetime "family" (as, truly, none of them have anyone else except each other now).

                  Marvel Television (which was officially folded into Marvel Studios last October) was a modest success in its own right -- with programming on Netflix, ABC, Freeform, and Hulu -- but it was a noble failure on the MCU front. It was always a one-way street, with the TV shows alluding to the movies but never the other way around. Eventually, when Runaways and Cloak and Dagger started, the shows just stopped acting like the Avengers existed at all. And Agents of SHIELD, as of Season 5 (or really the second half of Season 4), decided the best course for itself was to remove its players from the game board completely - whether it meant putting them in a Matrix-style reality or wiping them from the timeline altogether so they wouldn't be affected by Thanos.

                  Fortunately, by the time that was necessary, Agents of SHIELD had built up a solid-enough team dynamic, filled with enough love affairs and close bonds and (numerous) resurrections that allowed it to evolve into a soapy superhero joy in its own right, no longer needing to rely on the Marvel Studios films as a backdrop. The gang's new adventure, which now has them surfing their own rebooted timeline in that timeline's past, feels like the kind of fun and charming adventure these crusaders should be having as the series winds down. That's not to say the stakes won't rise as the season pushes on, but right now even with the "Wilfred Malick" twist right at the end, the show feels more dopey than dangerous. (In a good way, mind you.)

                  "The New Deal" drops our prime time players back in the Prohibition, as the Chronicoms (except for Enoch) intend to muss up the works so that they can lay claim to Earth as their new home. As soon as Deke mentions a theory that allows the team to create a smidgeon of havoc in the past without Butterfly Effecting things too much, it's off to the races. Quake takes down hidden enemies posing as cops, Patton Oswalt shows up as the original Koenig, and Coulson -- who has now (finally) become a full LMD -- geeks out while meeting FDR.

                  We don't know yet how many of this season's thirteen episodes will take place in the '30s, though it feels like perhaps the bulk of the season will have this post-Great Depression setting, as even the opening title graphic is done up in old-style noir. We do know that Enver Gjokaj's Agent Carter character (and Peggy's love interest), Souza, is headed our way, so given the Hydra element and the (presumed) super-soldier serum we saw, this final run could lead into some really cool First Avenger stuff. And since Agent Carter got axed before its time, perhaps this series can offer up some mini-closure on that front. It's doubtful that Hayley Atwell will pop in, but perhaps a teenage Peggy is in the cards.

                  The SHIELD team is, more or less, the best version of themselves right now. Coulson's back, but not as a deluded manifestation from the fear dimension (did I get that right?). Quake is still a badass in the field. Mac is still a "heavy is the head"-style of director. A recuperating Yo-Yo now has her "real" arms back while Simmons keeps the Z1 home fires burning. Deke is a drip, but a delightful one. Fitz is, naturally, gone, as he's wont to do. And May is...well, we're not sure yet. After being almost killed by Sarge last season, she spent the premiere in a healing pod - but then popped up right at the end in menacing fashion. The Season 7 premiere is a good (and semi-goofy) start to SHIELD's last hurrah, giving us just enough teases to indicate bigger things are on the way.


                  Normally, jumping heroes back in time almost a century for an adventure is something that gets sewn up in one go, but "The New Deal" stakes its claim in the fact that this jaunt to the past will take up most, if not all, of SHIELD's final run. It feels very fitting for a series that, for the past few years, has spent large chunks of time in virtual and/or alternate realities, smartly relying on our love for the characters to carry us through its sometimes-sludgy homegrown mythology.


                  Agents of SHIELD kicks off its final season with a fun, charming trip to the '30s to save humanity from the Chronicoms.


                  • Very strong start to the season.

                    Also Mack looks really good in a suit(to be fair the whole cast looks really good).

                    • Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ EPs Talk Tonight’s Final Season Debut, More Marvel, Time Travel, Hydra & How It All Ends




                        7x02 Sneak Peek.


                        • I was somewhat underwhelmed by the season start. The costumes were cute, and always cool to have Coulson. Deke is desperately needed and earns his spot in the show. I am sure it will pick up, it just started out as a bit of a bore.


                          • So we have May emotionally damaged and Elena's speed damaged. Not good.

                            So does nobody know where Fitz is now? Enoch was the only one in the present with FitzSimmons at the end of S6 and she doesn't know.

                            Okay, they changed the future in Season 5 but Deke is still around so that points towards Multiverse time travel. But now with this and Enoch inspiring the Koenig family, it seems like Whatever Happened, Happened. I doubt the writing teams talk but
                            did end up erasing their older selves at the end of that show.

                            Enoch also went the "long way" into the future with the Other Fitz so we'll probably see him again at least.

                            The actor for Freddy did a real good job.

                            • Really liked tonight's episode.Especially how Koenig factored into the episode.Emotionless May is scary IMO.

                              Curious if the team will reconnect with Enoch in a future period?


                              S.H.I.E.L.D. Recap: Parent Trapped — Which Agent Tried to Kill Freddy?

                              By Matt Webb Mitovich / June 3 2020

                              “To save SHIELD… we have to save HYDRA.” That realization, which capped Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD‘s final season opener, proved to be easier said than adhered to as more and more team members came to realize who Wilfred “Freddy” Malick is.

                              Because while Coulson contended that HYDRA must be allowed to form in order to spark SHIELD’s own founding, others offered differing opinions. For example, Yo-Yo suggested, couldn’t they stick around to steer the kid right? Nope, Simmons asserted, because that would alter the timeline just as much as keeping Gideon from being born. Plus, Coulson said, in the absence of Gideon Malick something/something even more insidious could rise to power.

                              This week’s episode picked up where the premiere left off, with the “away team” split up — Mack and Deke driving Freddy to wherever his secret mission takes him, while Coulson and Daisy stayed at Koenig’s speakeasy to get the gunshot Lady in Red mended. As such, they called for Simmons, who removed the bullet and patched up the Lady in Red, and Yo-Yo. When the Chronicops came knocking, the team hid in a secret room inside Koenig’s office, while a sweaty Koenig did his best to ward off the baddies. It all went off with nary a hitch, save for when a disoriented Lady in Red knocked over a wine bottle that an unsure-of-herself Yo-Yo failed to dart over and grab.

                              Luckily, the Chronicops just then got a lead on Freddy, leading them away from the bar. Simmons then used some crafty 1930s chemistry to deduce that the vials Freddy is carrying contain a building blocking for the “super serum” that would create Red Skull! They then make tracks for the Zephyr, bringing a blindfolded (but excited) Koenig along for the ride.

                              Freddy himself first led Mack and Deke to a location that was not the meet site, which is actually 500 miles away. No, he planned to hobo it aboard a train by himself, leaving his new acquaintances behind. But Mack, knowing the mission is to protect this kid at all costs, insisted they tag along. Aboard the train, Mack kept pressing Freddy on what he was really delivering, to the point that an anxious Freddy briefly drew a pistol on the guys. Adding further tension to the trio’s travels was the fact that Deke’s “unplugged telephone”/radio wasn’t strong enough to stay in touch with the Zephyr or the rest of the team.

                              Meanwhile on the Zephyr, as hinted last week, May is not quite herself upon coming to. Quizzed by Enoch, she remembers everything about the mission to stop Sarge and Izel… except her own death. When May gets wind that the rest of the team is in the field and Mack is possibly in trouble, she suits up and attempts to leave, but Enoch stops her. What followed was a pretty epic slugfest between the Cavalry and the Chronicom. May gained the upper hand and was brutally whaling on Enoch with a fire extinguisher or something when Daisy & Co. pulled onto the jet in their car. Interrupted in her assault, May laid eyes for the first time on LMD Coulson. And yet she didn’t seem quite as fazed as she should….

                              Boarding the Zephyr, Simmons realized that a countdown timer was ticking down, giving them just 17 minutes or so until the jet got pulled into a new “time tide.” They flew to catch up with Mack, Deke and Freddy, who were at the drop site. There, Mack discovered one of the green vials that Freddy had slipped inside a bottle of booze. Daisy meanwhile got in touch with Deke, alerting him and Mack to the countdown timer — and to who Freddy truly is. She then, with some hesitation, ordered Deke to kill Freddy. Deke gave it some thought, until Mack ordered him to stand down and because the Chronicops arrived and began opening fire. Daisy, Coulson, Koenig and Enoch arrived to help fend off the “Martians.” Freddy, meanwhile, slipped away with whomever he was meeting, after slowing Koenig down with a bullet.

                              Enoch, too, got sadly left behind as the Zephyr blinked away into the time “tide.” But as we saw in the bonus scene, he would up tending bar at the speakeasy, where he would regale Koenig with craft cocktails and tales of robots.

                              What did you think of the episode “Know Your Onions?” And to when do you think the agents got whisked?
