I thought this was a solid premiere, even if I forget pretty much everything that happened in season six. I was able to piece together what I think I remember that happened.
I like the time travel aspect for this season. Going back in time, I think, is working better so far than them going to the future.
I like the LMD Coulson. Better than whatever the hell Clark Gregg was playing last season. I like how self aware LMD Coulson is and how he knows that this isn't what the real life him would want, but he also wants to help save the world for the umpteenth time. I could see him helping and then asking Mack to shut him down for good, though. That would be entirely in character of Coulson. And since we do get old Coulson back, I'm super excited to see more of him. He had some excellent moments with Daisy and Mack. I feel like the show hasn't had as much of Coulson/Daisy as they used to so I'm glad we seem to be getting back to that.
FitzSimmons wouldn't be FitzSimmons if they weren't separated by time and space. I'm actually getting quite sick of that plot point but I also assume that this is Iain's choice, since he didn't even APPEAR here, nor do we know when he might show up. So, if this is an actor's choice, I get it, but it's still just the same old, same old. These two simply cannot catch a break.
So, YoYo gains some new artificial arms. I guess that's to cut down on the budget with her mechanical arms? I get it and I can't be mad. Plus, I like the reason for YoYo being resistant to it. It still made sense for her to do it while acknowledging that this is still a part of her.
Savng Hydra. Now that's a total 180 back to season 1 roots, in a way. I'm excited to see where it leads.
Also, May! Hi, you're clearly not ok so....I'm just gonna watch and see what happens.
Overall, decent premiere. Some very solid character moments that I enjoyed. Even Deke, who typically annoys me, wasn't a total comedic goofball dumbass as he usually is. They seem to be starting to get back to the person they introduced back in season 5, with a more serious and intellectual side to him. Also, if they completely drop the stupid Daisy crush, that's more props to the show.
Enoch, as always, is a treat. He's been a great character to see evolve and grow over the last couple of seasons.
