Not sure how I feel about the reveal at the end but we shall see what they do with it. Also, Mack is just annoying with all his whining about Inhumans and tech. Hello! you work with shield and yet you complain about everything they are working on.

The LMD swap at the end caught me by surprise.

I kind of liked the Coulson and May backstory on their first mission. We knew they had a past since the first season, but the show has never gone into it.

That was such a horrible episode until the twist, and they should have dragged it out a bit longer instead of showing the next episode spoilers. Oh well maybe there's a second twist with Fitz since I have no idea how or why they'd have him involved with the pseudo matrix in the first place, or what the time difference in the base would mean.

But the superior was such a dud. I mean it was dumb enough that he thought Coulson was the cause of all this alien stuff instead of, I don't know, some guy whose job is to follow all this alien stuff. Then we find out his backstory, which even Coulson just shrugs off. The whole episode and the flashback seemed pretty pointless. And then he inexplicably takes on Quake hand to hand even though he's hopelessly outclassed by her powers (although there was that weird moment where his blade jumped into her).

They've basically forgotten Daisy is supposed to be the computer genius, Fitz has that role now.

I won't be surprised to find out Fitz and Simmons are in the Framework and the others being LMDs is a "storyline" just to keep their minds occupied and distracted.

I thought of something similar when she kept taking about the time gap.

I liked the May twist, but this could quickly get ridiculous. Hopefully the pay off of this multiple replacement twist is worth dealing with the unbelievable aspect.

Fitz and Simmons figured out that Daisy, Coulson, Mack, and Mace were all LMDs. Especially after a loss of time that they couldn't account for.
