  1. I loved that, evidently, Fitz wanted to be called “Bobo.” And Fitz’s kind of befuddled, but pretty patient interactions with Deke at the end we’re pretty cute. Deke’s excitement and Fitz’s response reminded me of my nephews when they were about 12 and 8. The 12yo had been on a trip with me and when my brother picked us up at the airport, he warned him that the 8yo had missed him and would likely be “in his face” when we saw him. At dinner that night I looked over at the boys and the 8yo was about three inches from his brother’s face, talking a mile a minute at him. And the 12yo had this amused, tolerant smile on his face. It was very sweet.

    A couple of belated thoughts: I like Not!Coulson. Our SHIELD heroes are sometimes a little ... smug, and Sarge's refusal to be impressed by the team was kind of appealing to me. Don't get me wrong. I love Director Mac, but his whole "See, we are awesome because we saved both people"--when even a moron (and by this I mean myself) could have told them that putting two people infested by Shrikes together in the containment pod was probably not a good idea--was a tad self-righteous. So Sarge's, "Sure. Let's see how that works out for you" made me kind of smile. Was this the first time we've seen Simmons and Fitz talk over each other and actually stop and say, "Oh, you go first"? I feel like usually they just talk over each other without pausing because they're both saying the same thing. Here they were still saying the same thing, but there seemed to be a bit of a misstep in their usual dance. It made me a little sad to see them out of sync.
  3. These were my questions exactly! He'd been running for FIVE HOURS and wasn't done yet?! In all seriousness, I'm sure it was very disappointing for Jared not to be able to finish the course.

    Another thing about this one that I loved was when Simmons yelled “Because I love you!” and Fitz yelled “I love you too!” you can see Iain go up on his toes with the force of it. To me that was such a great small moment that showed Fitz’s passion - and maybe competitiveness? - in his declaration.

    I enjoyed this episode and that we got to see both storylines. I'm looking forward to the team's reunion soon, though. I thought the scene between Deke and Mac was really good. And I liked that Mac was actually sympathetic toward Deke's feelings about Fitz. I kind of can't wait to see how this alternate Fitz reacts to Deke given the different circumstances of their meeting.

    Yea! Enoch and FitzSimmons! I was afraid after last week’s heavy FitzSimmons episode we go back to all-earth.
  7. Thanks! Edited to add: Is that because no one's asking or they're just not on that topic or they're avoiding talking about it? Or is it just not the time in the convention when people ask questions? Sorry. I don't know a lot about how the conventions work. 🙂
  8. Have they said anything about the show or next year?

    I also loved that Fitz's proposal is the one - or most of the one, I think - that Jemma didn't actually hear the first time around.

    On rewatch: --it was fun to watch the DemonSimmons scenes and try to figure out what she was made of. For instance, in addition to the gold on her face from their time in the future, she was also wearing her slave outfit. And over that she was wearing the remains of the shirt she had on when she was whisked off to Maveth. --while the two of them were screaming at each other in the containment pod and they were yelling about what it meant that it was "so English" of her to have repressed so that things would be neat and orderly, Simmons said something like, "How Scottish of you to bring that up in an argument!" Hee. --I kind of loved how consistent it was to have annoyed-Fitz even with KidSimmons. And when she corrected him about being seven and a half, he was all "Shut it" with his close-your-mouth gesture. Of course he knew she wasn't really a little girl, but he was similarly impatient with Robin (and Deke). I was thinking about the fact that his daughter described him so lovingly to Deke given that Fitz clearly isn't a kid person. It seems very Fitz-like to me to have little interest in children until he had one (or more - come on, people) of his own. --Daisy stepping on Mack's moment was awesome.

    I can't wait to watch this one again. So much good stuff. In the meantime, Simmons's music box full of pain made me think of one of my favorite scenes from Cheers. My brother and I have occasionally quoted Frasier to each other in light of our own family dynamics.
  12. Thanks for that! I saw the bill had passed and couldn’t quite remember if she was pro or con (though pro seemed most likely :)) and then couldn’t be bothered to figure it out. 🍺🍻

    Oh, good - thanks! I honestly had missed that and hadn't had time for a rewatch.

    I still want to know how Davis lived after being attacked by AIDA. We never found out, did we? I loved that Davis was all, “Those guys have no interest in my amazing story,” talking about the main team. I actually liked that we got a taste of this with the AoS team’s POV of the fall of SHIELD and the Winter Soldier story. Um, back to this episode. Davis and Piper insisting they could have escaped on their own was cute.
