Agents of SHIELD Season 6 returns next week


Trailer was released today so I figure we should get a thread going. No idea how much they'll reference Endgame, if at all, so what should the policy for Endgame spoilers be?

Also, they're making a Ghost Rider spinoff for Hulu:

Some echos of bringing back Brett Dalton after the Ward died. I'm willing to give them a chance to make it a compelling story.

I'm looking forward to the new season, especially how it might to Endgame. Are Endgame spoilers in spoiler tags OK?

I think boxed spoilers unless the show covers it specific should be fine.

Cool!

SPOILERS for both Endgame and the end of Season 5:

SPOILER:
So I think I saw Coulson on the list of the missing in Avengers HQ... If I'm right, does this mean he survived a few days (or even just hours) on Tahiti only to be dusted? If he died of dusting, then theoretically his terminally-ill self comes back alive 5 years later. I know the show creators have insisted Coulson is dead, but I find it's an odd inclusion in Endgame, given that in theory none of the Avengers know Coulson survived his attack by Loki. Then again, I could just be over-reading into a situation in which the TV scriptwriters didn't know how the movie script would end and possibly vice-versa.

Agents Assemble, its Season 6


Hopefully I did not miss a thread already started.

SPOILER:
Nothing mentioned regarding the snap or events that took place in infinity or endgame


Shield looks to be back and out of the shadow world and running business out of the lighthouse, and the new story line takes place a year after Chicago and that really bad parking job. Mack is the new director, and seems to have a full roster of team members plus Quinn Jets.

Quake, Simmons, Piper yada yada are on the bus touring the universe looking for Fitz.

Looks like we are going full fringe here folks, with Fauxlson and his team of merry men.

Yeah, it appears that AoS has irrecovably severed itself from the MCU. I'm taking a wait and see on this one - we have no idea what Sarge/Coulson and his small crew are up to, and apparently Quake and Jemma are torturing their way across the galaxy to find Fitz.

I'm usually a week or so behind on these, but I just caught up.

A perfectly fine beginning to the season IMO. SHIELD tends to get real stupid before it gets REAL good, so I'll give this season a country mile before writing it off. Honestly the hardest thing was remembering what happened last season and how it works with this one. Case in point: Did Yo-Yo lose her powers? I remember her hands getting severed by the living Bratz doll, and I remember she killed a dude and that's why she and Mack are no longer together, but her hand-to-hand with May makes it seem like she has no powers. Can someone remind me?

Two other points:

1. I don't watch much scripted TV at all save for Game of Thrones and you can really tell just how cheap SHIELD is compared to it! Obviously an ABC series isn't going to get the budget of HBO, so it's not fair to compare, but yikes is it noticible.

2. The Whedon's sure love Central Indiana! A handful of seasons ago saw the team head to Muncie to grab a Ball State student and this past episode saw not only a return to Muncie, but also a Castleton shoutout. It's also patently obvious the writers have never actually BEEN to Central Indiana as Castleton is a super rich suburb of Indy (aka, no street-tough black kids playing on a playground basketball court) but also a laughably HUGE Natural History Museum in Muncie that doesn't exist. What? They couldn't get the rights to Minnetrista?

Ruby cut off Yo-yo's arms. Mack fitted her out with some robot arms he salvaged from LMDs. The first time she tried to superspeed with them, something bad happened, because the nerve impulses to the arms were too fast or some other technobabble. So Mack fixed it. But Yo-yo's very first act with her fixed arms was to slit Ruby's throat, which made all the other SHIELD agents very sad, especially Mack.

So she should still have super-speed, but was practicing her fighting skills without it I guess?

Thanks

So Yo-Yo does have her super speed.

I'm incredibly disappointed that the portal paint wasn't blue on one side, and orange on the other.

Frankly, the SHIELD agents are the most boring part of the show now. I'm OK with that - Fitz and Coulson/Sarge pretty much carried the show anyway IMHO.

This morning I read an interview with Whedon et. al. In which they said this season takes place pre-Snap.

They said it was because when they started production, they didnít know if ABC was going to put them on in January, pre-Endgame, or now, post-Endgame. So they decided to duck the whole issue.

The only vague-ish connection Endgame that I can see, and I gather it may be unintentional:

SPOILER:
When Captain America hopped in the time machine at the end of the movie to restore the infinity stones to their rightful place, or whatever (the movie was kind of a mess on this point, but time-travel stories almost always are), somebody warned him that a mistake "could create all kinds of nasty alternative realities" or something. I gathered this happened, retroactive to the distant past, and "Sarge" and his crew have been travelling these realities for a while.
