Loved the episode... and thought they did a great job with the current version of Ghost Rider. I grew up on Johnny Blaze's incarnation but thought Robbie Reyes was an interesting new take on the Spirit of Vengeance. Only thing I miss is the motorcycle! Ghost Rider naturally belong on Netflix, but i'm interested how they use him in this season of AoS.

So, I just saw the episode with the Ghost Driver in it. Nice start to the season with plenty of questions that need to be answered in the coming episodes.

On a side note, did they stop releasing dvds for agents of shield? I was waiting for the season 3 dvd set to show my brother and haven't found any listings. I searched around the net, but I have the anit-internet searching power.

I enjoyed this season premiere. The show really seems to have shaped up. This new Ghost Rider is more vicious, menacing that his predecessors, which works for me. I liked the face-off between Ghost Rider and Quake. The SFX doesn't feel at all cheap, which is always a good thing for a superhero show.

I think the S3 Blu Ray will be out later in the year, along with S2 of AGENT CARTER

@David Allen Perrin - I'm hoping the same. At which point, I will vault out of my chair and dance around like a chimp on his sixth cappuccino...

Have there been any hints or rumors that the new director may, in fact, be Jim Hammond? I love the idea, I just don't know where the Jim Hammond talk started.

I think the only definite information that's been given is that the new
director's Marvel roots trace back to the 1940s.

I am going to say he has some connection to The Angel or Citizen V.

Rumor has it the director is Jeffrey Mace, also known as the Patriot (and the 3rd Captain America, World War II era*.) who was created during the 1940s. There's a clip with Coulson calling him Jeffrey.

*When Marvel revived Cap in 1964, the story explained that he had been missing in action and in suspended animation since 1945. This discrepancy with his post war comic-book appearances was later explained as the result of replacement heroes (Mace) taking on the mantle.

Yep, watching it now. the closed captioning for the
directors first lines said he was Mace.

Watching the rest of the episode no reference to the
40's or a career as the Patriot (that I caught anyway).
But he is Inhuman with superhuman strength and
invulnerability.

I wish The Darkhold had been saved for a Dr Strange sequel or a
Netflix "Midnight Sons" set of series.

'Ghost Rider and Quake' has a nice ring to it.

I like the direction this season is going in. I was glad to hear the Darkhold mentioned. I hope this season is going to tie into Dr.Strange.

Jeff Mace - so possibly the Patriot was a contemporary of Ant-Man and the Wasp? With a super soldier type treatment, his aging could be greatly reduced.

I am liking this season. The one issue I have - and it's a tremendous one - is that the vehicle of choice is not a motorcycle. One does not ride a car; one drives it. Yeah, a technicality, but it's not as if this is unknown ground.

ITEM: Do they have the nerve to cameo Nic Cage? (Do they have the funds...? :D :D :D)

ITEM: I hope that this engenders a possibility of a flashback episode or two, set with Agent Carter, and involving the original Ghost Rider. Yes, I know they'd have to finagle the timelines a bit, but again... HE'S IN A CAR.

"Jeff Mace - so possibly the Patriot was a contemporary of Ant-Man and the Wasp? With a super soldier type treatment, his aging could be greatly reduced."

Not likely.  IF this is Jeff Mace, he has been retconned as an Inhuman in AOS.  He says so himself.

He seems to posses super strength and a degree of invulnerability based on what we saw last night.

Bummed that my Jim Hammond theory went up in.......FLAMES!

So am I but if this the same Jeff Mace that was Captain America during Steve's absense. I'd be happy with that. I was hoping that he would have been on Agent Carter but this would have been fine.

If the TV and movie sides of Marvel were more coordinated, I'd think
that the Director would be a *modern* replacement for Captain
America, giving a SHIELD led by a Captain America and leaving John
Walker for the films. Since it's not and because SHIELD is now under
the UN and the Sokovia Accords, perhaps they'll use The Patriot as a
more generic Cap replacement.

A buddy recently gave me a good argument for Director 'Jeffrey' being an LMD and not an Inhuman.  

Making him an Inhuman doesn't tie in the other storyline of the show.  It might be POLITICALLY safe to say the new director of SHIELD is a registered Inhuman (to show the world how much they can be trusted when they behave...and comply with the Slovakia Accords).  But they don't really trust them enough to put a powerful entity like SHIELD in the hands of a true Inhuman.  So instead they installed an LMD.  And the storyline with AIDA will dovetail into the Director's background at some point.

Jeff the Director's actions during May's attack were a little too...robotic according to my friend.  Hmmmm....

Stay tuned to see if my buddy is right.

Also:

When I told my friend Ghost Rider and Quake would make a good team he quipped back at me.....

"you mean Shake and Bake?"  (PERFECT)

So thats what I'm calling them from now on.

I've loved this series pretty much from the beginning (didn't love the pilot, but by episode three or so, I was on board).  But holy moley, this season is shaping up to be their best.  That's probably premature, but goddamn, this week's episode was good.

The second episode was going so well. But then the director had to say the "I" word.
