I wonder if there's plans to carry Paxton over to the films.

Paxton is lots of fun in almost everything, I'll be glad to see him again. Now if only they'd schedule this show in such a fashion that I could actually remember what happened in the last episode.

This show really hit its stride in the last few episodes. Looking forward to tonight!

Finally. I hated that One episode return. Was like a carrot dangling in front of a horse.

Agent John Garrett rocked a porn mustache in the comics. Seeing Bill Paxton in a porn mustache would have been epic. Such a missed opportunity.

So, I don't know a lot about the Marvel universe, but I've got to think that Marvel fans are geeking out about this show about now - if they're still around. Seeing bits and pieces of Marvel canon that you haven't seen on the big screen. Now, who can tell me who GH is? At first I was like, Doctor Manhattan? But that's the wrong universe.

Yeah, looked like a Kree to me. Pretty decent episode.

Until recently, none of the stuff from Watchmen was folded into the main DCU, was it?

This was a freaking awesome episode. This show just keeps getting better and better.

Anyone who dropped off is really missing out now.

This has a lot of those classic Joss Whedon slow reveal kind of things, and it's really starting to pay off. This show was one of those payoff episodes - but there's still a lot more to discover. I'm really digging Agents of SHIELD now. I liked it from week two on (the pilot was truly uninspired mediocrity), but I've been loving the last few episodes.

And next week we get some Asgard action. That should be fun.

I agree, tonight was GREAT.

Do we see the beggings of Ms. Marvel?

Coulson is the only one the Clairvoent cannot see, interesting.

Garbha-Hsien was an immortal mutant

Immortal: his aging process is greatly retarded and he can apparently regenerate injured or missing cells from even near-fatal injuries.

Rapid Healing: ability to endure injuries (within unknown limits) without lasting harm or even feeling pain such as knife wounds

Jaw completely dropped when they showed you-know-who in the next ep! And I agree that Paxton killed it here.

So... how do they justify killing two agents, just to save one?

Spock is not amused.

Those weren't SHIELD Agents. They still don't know who is responsible for the Guest House.

Great catch, I went to the same site, but did not drill down into the "Other" Earths.

Not looking good:

ABC’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., which on Tuesday night returned to 5.1 million total viewers and a 1.7 demo rating, dropping 23 percent from its month-ago airing, to series lows.
I don't understand why they've taken so many breaks. They should held on to some episodes and given a more consistent run.

I feel like this is absolutely moving to Fridays next year (if it comes back). And it will most likely only get 13 episodes. Unless they drastically reconfigure the show. I want Cobie Smulders back full time.

An interesting Forbes article: http://www.forbes.com/sites/merrillb...nted-it-to-be/
