I just watched it. Glad to have something to watch now that Legends and the Arrowverse is on pause.

I definitely like the character writing and their interactions. I had a feeling about Freddy cause he kept popping up and the vague references to his dad.

From a technical perspective, I'm curious how Jemma created the new information or memories of Coulson. While big moments like losing a teammate or officiating a wedding are remembered, it's the smaller details. The internal narrative we tell ourselves and the small choices we make in that direction that make us who we are.

So how could Jemma believable create "memories" after the Framework that isn['t just a list of facts. She's not all knowing, she would have limited knowledge of Coulson, especially his relationship with May. So I don't think the LMD will work out. My bet is he will have a short life, at least with the team.

I will be surprised if they don't do an episode where he is abandoned to live decades/centuries alone and they find him and he hasn't aged a day.
