Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Past Life
February 8, 2018 10:44 AM - Season 5, Episode 10 - Subscribe

The team has one final chance to return to their timeline, but their actions may have deadly consequences.

Kasius foreshadows his stash of Space PCP by giving it to his trainer, who goes off to muirder the humans, only to be killed by Daisy and Coulson. Yo-yo finds herself, but not in the good way. Coulson has spidery looking black stuff killing him, and future YoYo insists that attempts to save him are what dooms us all. Kasius slows down Mack and present Yo-yo by taking his own dose of Space PCP. Flint Duke and Enoich self-immolate to trigger the time splash back to the present, though it's ambiguous if the whole party made it back.

A.V. Club: Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. rushes forward trying to assemble a way back

Three weeks later a Kree missile arrives to punish humanity for their rebellion. There is no time to react, there are no survivors.

That's assuming anyone other than Kasius' father cares.

A rebellion that killed the son of a high ranking Kree (emperor?) would need to be made an an example of to deter other Kree colonies from rebelling. With Kree technology and gravitonium on the station obliteration would be a dramatic and effective solution.
No one cared about Kasius, his father would have cared the least, but he lost two sons in that rebellion. He would have his sons avenged.

This is entirely fictional, but I see no hope of the lighthouse surviving.

I think this was one of the more violent episodes of the series.

I enjoy seeing bits of evil lingering in Fitz from his time in the framework; e.g. freaking out Simmons by cooly executing a strategic triple beheading.

Uh, didn’t they blow the whole thing up when Enoch exploded to activate the monolith? What’s left to destroy?

This has nothing to do with the episode exactly, but I've been dying to share this with somebody who actually watches SHIELD, and this seems like the most active recent thread, so here goes.

If you remember the handheld "radio" SHIELD was using to contact the people dwelling on the surface of the earth, you may be interested to know it's not a radio at all. It's actually an audio recorder with absolutely, positively no radio broadcasting or reception capabilities whatsoever. The reason I can say this is because it's a TASCAM DR-05, the exact model I use on a daily basis. It's also very distinctively shaped.

When I first saw the shot with Coulson (I think) using it, I had to stop and laugh, but the final nail in my fall-over-laughing-at-the-bad-prop hysterical fit was when Sinara held it up to show Kasius that the radio had been found and confiscated. That shot was so clear, and it was evident the prop team hadn't done a thing to try to disguise it or make it look more like a radio and less like what it actually is. They couldn't even bother to remove the model number's big white letters from the front of the unit.

Does anyone else think the little piece of the monolith powering the device also liquified and sucked Deke back into the past with them?

Speaking of the radio, the fragment of Earth that they bounced the signal off was referred to as 616, which is a nod to Earth-616 which is the primary Marvel Universe.

So was his name Kasius Kasius? Because when he made the decision to take the space PCP he said he'd bring honor back to the Kasius family name. But Faulnak (his brother) called him Kasius didn't he? Why didn't he just say "... bring honor back to my family's name?" I am confused.

A rebellion that killed the son of a high ranking Kree (emperor?)

I think Kasius said that his father had been dishonored. Maybe he was referring to the dishonor he (Kasius Kasius) had brought to the Kasius family name, it wasn't clear, but I got the feeling that Dad was Kree non grata as well. But I could be wrong, it was just one line.

This was a hard episode to watch, the stuff with Yo-Yo was horrifying.

I love stuff like this!
