AGENTS OF SHIELDEpisode 420 Farewell Cruel WorldWritten by Brent FletcherDirected by Vincent MisianoBack to our regular programming as the gang gathers in the postconvention bunker to discuss the latest really tough to watch episode of AGENTS OF SHIELD and not because it was badly written but because there was plenty of emotionallycharged scenes that really worked Its a really solid episode with a lot of moments that build to a few gutwrenching final minutes As we predicted Fitz looks like hes going to have some issues And our intrepid heroes inside the Framework will have to live with the knowledge that theyre not real in the traditional sense but then what are theyAnd now that most of the team is out of the Framework what does it mean for everyone How does Fitz cope with the monster he became inside How does everyone process Macks decision What will happen to PhilLindaThe panel Maia Ades Mindy Inlow Sam Sentman Timothy Harvey Jason Hunt

AGENTS OF SHIELDEpisode 418 No RegretsWritten by Paul ZbyszewskiDirected by Eric LaneuvilleFinally the introduction of Dad and Fitz Iain De Caestecker is starting to lose a little of that selfassured swagger hes been sporting in the Framework Is Madame Hydra Mallory Jansen telling him everything Or is she manipulating her lover at the same time shes digging her claws into the rest of everyones worldIts clear that the elder Fitz David OHara has had a profound impact on his sons upbringing and resulting character and personality and its also clear why the real Fitz doesnt want to have anything to do with the man The lovable Leo Fitz is a product of his mothers influence and it remains to be seen what happens when the team gets out of the Framework and Fitz has to confront his memories of this twisted version of himselfLikewise with Mack Henry Simmons whos going to eventually have to give up the idea of being with his daughter Hope Jordan Rivera And though Jemma Elizabeth Henstridge is affected by that one relatively happy tableau shes still keenly aware that this is all just a digital makebelieve world Jemma faces a crisis of conscience of a sort complicated by the fact that Mace Jason OMara and Ward Brett Dalton dont buy her storyMay MingNa Wen also faces a crisis of conscience when faced with the notion that Hydra will brainwash and kill people to keep them compliant In the face of her failure at Baharain her failure at Cambridge and the way Daisy Chloe Bennet has been trying to get through to her maybe just maybe there are things finally not adding up Unless 1 1 terrigenesis and a lot of whoopinsProps to OMara for his very solid performance this week His life in the Framework as the Patriot is worthy of songThe panel Maia Ades Mindy Inlow Sam Sentman Timothy Harvey Jason Hunt
