The preview for the Mack and Deke episode is amazing. I can't wait to see this one. Phil Headroom!

It was neat that they actually used the old classic SHIELD uniforms over the last couple of episodes. Though of course it did make me wish there was a classic style Nick Fury also making an appearance.

I've seen some decry the 80's episode as "filler" but I thought it was totally radical!!

I suspect that the last episode will have Coulson getting killed in the S.H.I.E.L.D. helicarrier, being revived, and seeing the original team just having found Skye and heading off into the sunset. A cameo by Samuel L is not unexpected either.

I'm loving this last season, right down to the openings of each episode.

POSSIBLE SPOILER: I wonder if this Lily is actually a precursor to AIDA?

They've quite rightly been calling last week's episode ("As I Have Always Been") the best of the series - yay, Elizabeth Henstridge! - and while this week's couldn't quite get up to those heights, it was also an excellent outing.  Season 7 could go down as their best, which is pretty goddamn impressive.

I appreciated the sentiment of having James Paxton play the young John Garrett, but he doesnít really resemble his father.

That was a really nice touch. He does sound like him a bit and I guess it was kind of bittersweet for him to fill in for his dad.

They haven't inserted agents into a previous episode, so this doesn't feel like a copy of Endgame, and only a little like a "Farewell Tour."

I was going to retract my prediction that they'd try for one more movie tie-in with the '90s events of Captain Marvel, but I see I never posted it. One advantage of having been busy!

There was a split second when he had a smirk and I seen a flash of WEIRD SCIENCE Bill.

Iíll be sad to see it go.  I am STILL pissed AOS wasnít part of Disney+ programming!  It would have been PERFECT (for me at least).

And now these great characters will most likely never be heard from again.  I still don't understand Joss Whedon making Coulson a part of this show...only to spend an inordinate amount of time making the show stand AWAY from the MCU proper.  

Iíll miss this one a lot.

The separation of the MCU and SHIELD had much to do with the personal conflict between Ike Perlmutter (who oversaw the TV half) and Feige (who did the films).  As that deepened, the two fictional worlds started to drift apart - particularly noticeable in the Netflix shows, which had extremely tenuous connections to the films.

The AOS showrunners have also said that they felt the show improved by being able to not have to slot itself into the films' timeline, which I mostly agree with, as Season 4 is my personal favorite and it's the first season that's got exactly nothing to do with the films.

That said, I still carry hope that Coulson's (Mack's?) team can someday have some small part of the films.  That would make me happy...
