Finally caught up his season, went back to catch some of the conversation here and there basically is none. Less than 10 posts per thread and the last one had no comments at all.

Well, I didn't think the Ghost Rider stuff was all that bad, the LMD stuff didn't drag out too long and had a twist, though the Mace reveal was a bit disappointing. There are a lot of storylines based on betrayal, which is appropriate for a spy series but it does start to seem recycled.

This weeks episode should offer some comic relief at least.

Another "I was doublecrossed... just kidding" moment. How many times can they do it, at this point it's not even believable. And way to stretch the Koenig/LMD joke too far.

Glad they finally figured out that LMD May was an imposter. The Koenigs are moderately amusing.

LOL at seeing Zach McGowan (Charles Vane from Black Sails) play a Russian captain.

Now we have Radcliffe working with Nadeer.

Zach McGowan was definitely an interesting casting choice. Seems like he could be around for a few episodes too.

Glad the LMD story line has reached the tipping point so it will start being resolved. That Ghost Rider crap went on far too long and glad this is going much better.

I'm guessing an LMD of Grant Ward by the end of the season.

The escape with the Darkhold "out the back" was poorly written ... Quantum brains - interesting. Wasn't the russian captain also on 100 last (and this?) season?

The Koenigs were the highlight of this episode for me, especially the sister who convinced the brothers (well, three of the four) to join SHIELD.

I liked this episode but the Darkhold stuff is getting a bit old
