“I’d rather have a thin plan than live through the Eighties, again.”
One of the interesting things that Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. does with alarming regularity is sacrifice cohesive, linear storytelling for beating somebody senseless into understanding. It’s hard not to feel that as an audience member during this last season, because, ostensibly, the time travel stuff is coming hot and quick and yes, it’s internally consistent, so, yay!, but also, there’s a lot going on under the surface that we can’t predict because we don’t have all the information. I love that they added time-lost Sousa on to the team, here, at the end, because he’s the audience-in, now. “Finally, the scientist from the future and I are on the same page.”
I think that every third commercial break.
It’s no secret I thought the Inhumans seasons were interminable, but at least they are being tied into, here, in the endgame. There’s urgency and struggles, and ominous danger and whatnot.
I’m not sure they can tie it all together.
