    Hm... I'm not really sure what I thought of that. But I do know that I really missed Fitz. I hope he comes back soon.

    I really enjoyed it a lot. I was very confused at first, but then I suppose that was the point.

    I don’t really believe (right now) that Daisy/Quake demoed the world, so my big question is whether this is the ultimate fate of Earth at some point in the future and is immutable (interesting storytelling possibilities), or if we’re just going to get a ‘ha ha we changed the future so that never really happened’ wrap-up in a few months’ time.

    I think he’s sitting a few episodes out this year while he films scenes for a movie. Something to do with zombie Nazis.

    I enjoyed that episode. Can't wait to see how they get out of it. It would be interesting if this was a future in which Thanos beat the avengers. But I know they won't have that sort of tie in.

    This was a pretty shocking season premier, but I think it's one of their best. But it raises all sorts of questions.

    Chief among them is how they could possibly fix this mess. They established in previous seasons that history is immutable. The future cannot be changed. So either Marvel decided that their tie in show will reveal that Earth is canonically destroyed in the future of the MCU (obviously not) or the show is likely just going to have a plot hole.

    Also, I wondered if Fitz left the show because I don't know how they are going to include him in this arc.

    It would be hard for me to believe Daisy destroyed the Earth. That would make her probably the most powerful being in the MCU so far. My first guess was that it was a reference to Infinity War.

    Part of me wonders if the writers saw the Expanse and said "Hey that's a cool show, lets put our characters in that situation" because at first all it seemed like the people on that space station were missing was the Belter accent.

    By the way, I couldn't help but feel Mac is at least partially kind of responsible for that guy's death. If he didn't punch him out, they wouldn't have stuck around in a dangerous area for so long.

    I would imagine Fitz will be in flashes to our time trying to get them all back. That post card said "I'm working on it - Fitz" and wasn't Hunter coming back to the show maybe Fitz recruits him back. I wonder tho if the act of trying to bring them back is what destroys the earth. Also you'd think that ghost rider could jump into Phil that might help them get back.

    That was... well I don't really know.
    That's confusing. I guess I'm stuck between "that was brilliant" and "what the hell happened"
    About Quake, well she could have easily been framed. It happened a lot in the past to all agents of Shield. Or maybe she was forced to do this to save someone. Or maybe the Kree have a way of controlling in humans. Maybe they made her do it.
    I'm sick of the show separating Fitz and Simmons over and over again. It's getting old and that's more than enough.
    And about that mining piece of Earth, I know it wouldn't have an atmosphere, but maybe there are people still living on it. Like inside the remaining crust.
    And about the Kree invasion, was it mentioned in the episode why they are interested in Earth or enslaving humans? Did I miss something? I mean why go to another sector in space, destroy a planet and get all its inhabitants to work on a space station??

    Oh, I can buy her trashing the planet, she may have been taken over by some external entity who used her ability w/out her consent. Even if that were the case, a lot of people would still place the blame on her for having the power in the first place.

    As far as a rollback, I would expect that.

    This show might actually hold my interest this year. I've started watching prior seasons, but usually lose interest 3-4 eps. in.

    Invasion? I thought it was just that they showed up after it had already been destroyed?
