Good to see that Fitz and Hunter observed proper cryogenic freezing protocol.

I genuinely laughed out loud at that, even moreso because of my split-second WTF? reaction before it sank in. I would not have thought it possible to catch me flat-footed with a SW joke, which made it even better.

This season's been pretty 'meh' to me overall. I prefer them set on Earth, present-day, but this episode was a real hoot. Hunter and Fitz have good chemistry together.

Having the Ark in the warehouse at Blue Haven whatever was a nice touch too.

I guess in the SHIELD universe Star Wars is a movie and Indiana Jones is history.

Star Wars is a historical drama. The events it's based on happened long ago in a galaxy far away.

This season has been notably funny. The show always had humor, of course, it just seems like they’ve cranked it up a few notches.

I really enjoyed this episode, and it was nice to get a break from the future-Earth setting.

But I miss SHIELD as an organization. But they’ve blown it all up at least twice now, so it’s hard to see how it becomes a thing again.

How many episodes did last season’s arcs run? Have they said if this season will be structured similarly?

I really enjoyed this one. Good payoff on the endless soccer watching and the cryogenic protocols. Bobbi has always been my favorite over Lance, but he was good here. Also intrigued by the alien anthropologist.

Aw, I missed Hunter. All the soccer made me laugh.

I wonder if Enoch is a reference to Enoch Root in Neal Stephenson books, or to the biblical Enoch, which might be referenced by Enoch Root.

I wonder if the daughter's "just" a precog or if she's a Cosmic Cube.

"Release the ferrets!" is the best line of the season so far.
