My WAG: all Enoch did was send people forward through time, which doesn't violate causality. Sending people back through time is a completely different issue.

I was watching this without my glasses. Can anyone tell me what was in the story book and it's title?

Also the make out joke was telegraphed from about ten kilometers away.

It was a story about Simmons search for Fitz. When he closed it the book was the Darkhold.

True - but it was still funny.

Yep - the evil book that created so much trouble a few seasons back.

I enjoyed this episode quite a bit.

Hopefully back on Earth they'll resolve the "we've got two groups fighting each other who have plenty of reason to be working together instead" issue fairly quickly.

I liked how (Ringu)Simmons had traces of gold on her forehead, as a reminder of her nightmarish Kree slave days.

Didn't catch that. Cool.

Standing O for the actors playing Fitz and Simmons in that one. One of my favorite episodes of the series.

I like how Fitz decided that mentioning Aida would bring back Simmons to the adult version of herself. I thought that was funny.

So the end of Enoch, and FitzSimmons will be back on Earth soon? I think the show is about to take a turn downhill.

And the utter stupidity of putting both Shrikers in the same isolation module was just terrible writing. Especially since earlier in the episode they stated that the two targets were traveling towards each other. Why would you put them in the same room?

Does anyone think that A-Hole Coulson (as the wife puts it) will be a permanent thing, or does he get somehow made back into The Original Coulsen by seasons end?

From the end of the last episode, it sure looks like A-Hole Coulson isn't going to stay on after all. But the crazy Deke humper will?

I just got caught up over the weekend and boy am I disappointed.

- Let's jump on this spaceship headed for earth with unknown space lady without asking any questions about who, what, when, where or why she is going to earth. Brilliant!
- Evil alien bird parasites are trying to meet up with each other to carry out some unknown nefarious plan. Hey, why don't we just swoop down, capture them and put them together in the same room? That sounds like a smart idea!
- Mac trying to have a battle of wits with NotCoulson by telling him everything SHIELD knows and all of their future plans. Yeah, that will totally work!
- The only funny part over the last few episodes was Mac hugging Fitz like he was his favorite toy.

What the hell happened to all of my cool SHIELD people? No interesting plot line(s), no interesting villains, no witty rejoinders...It's like they beat everyone over the head with the stupid stick just to make the plot move forward.

If this is what I can expect moving forward I think I'm going to pretend they ended the series last year.

I'm still waiting for the Ghost Rider hammer to drop. Thats why Coulson died anyway, right? Didn't the Ghost Rider take out the Kree Magic Stuff that kept him alive in the first place?

An amusing moment in this week's episode: Simmons calls Earth and gives the code word for duress to Davis, who replies with the same code word, since he's under duress as well.

I watch this show with my dad and after pretty much every episode he says "I miss Ghost Rider, they should bring Ghost Rider back." So I'm hoping he shows back up again, if only for his sake.

My wife concurs with you on this one.

Not sure if you saw my earlier post, but they're making a Ghost Rider spinoff:
