It's finally back! Thanks to a corporate synergy SNAFU, the season premiere did something really confusing...

I was thinking it was some kind of possession of dead bodies with limited access to memories. Coulson recognized his name, but only vaguely, and Snowflake loves talking about reincarnation.

Maybe they're Space Phantoms?

I’m glad Agents of SHIELD aced the same plot prompt as The 100 last week for “Inescapable.” Seeing SHIELD Academy again reminds me how awkward secret HYDRA High was. Repression monster Simmons should be called Jemmacide.

me: Evil Fitzsimmons should hook up. Writer DJ Doyle: We got you covered, weirdo!

Yesterday Anthony Michael Hall guest starred as discount Grandmaster!

This dispels my theory that even numbered seasons would all be good ones.

It seemed like the creators were really in the groove with Season 4 being broken up into definite plot arcs, and Season 5, while it took a bit to get going, ended strong (and I think would've served great as a series finale). So I had some high hopes for this one, especially since it seemed to have a good setup - one half of the group in space finding Fitz (and Enoch), the other half on Earth dealing with Izel, and coming up with a good reason to keep Clark Gregg on the show without cheapening Coulson's (second) death.

Turned out to not be bad, but not great either. The writing was uneven (episode 3 with Daisy/Simmons' trip was pretty bad) and the ending felt a bit... abrupt? The sudden re-entry of the Chronicoms into the plot in the final few episodes came and went too quickly, and the actual resolution of the Izel threat was definitely too easy (they win because... Izel turns her back on May and gets stabbed? Did I miss a reason why she did that?) At least they ended up offing Coulson; I was really worried in the last few episodes they would use it as a way to bring him back (possibly with a season-long plotline of him regaining his memories). Having an LMD Coulson for next season is a much better move, I think, since I really want to avoid them undoing his death.

We'll see how next season goes, I can't say the setting (late 1920s) is especially exciting to me. Helps cut down on the set costs, I suppose. Simmons was talking really weird at the end - I started wondering if she and Fitz got turned into Chronicoms or something. (Did we see Deke at all after he landed the quinjet?)

No idea how to feel about it. Last season was alright, but I felt like it went downhill quickly toward the middle. Ill remain optimistic, though.

The final season of Agents of SHIELD should spend its whole runtime wrapping up Inhumans danglers.

S4 was definitely the high point, S5 dragged for far too long, and S6 was too much 'odd'. Obviously, any show like this will be a bit weird, but it felt like the progression of S6 was throw a lot of crap at the wall and hope some of it sticks and flows from what we've seen in the past in the show. S4 was the series which took everything we knew, tweaked it, played with expectations, and delivered a total package of mini-arcs that form a cohesive whole.

If (as the trailer indicates) there's a 'pod' / 'mini-arc' progression to the series, great, but I'm not overly looking forward to this.
