All right, you abercrombies - let’s bump some gums. The butter & egg man brought us Season 7, and Season 6 left us all with a few . . questions.
(Or maybe just me. I feel like there was weather or election news that broke up my final few episodes, because I have zero idea what the nuance of the temple stuff was. Of course, I was also spending most of my time back then re-watching the FitzSimmons bottle episode, so that could be part of it, too.)
My Previously On is below; in the meantime — how are you, my darlings? The world has gone cattywumpus since last time we hung out, and I miss you all! Fill me in! Tell me jokes! Give your Terrible 30s Slang a test run!
Let’s do this!
What I remember:
The Runaway Truck sequence, where Deke, Skye, May, and Butterfly play SPEED! with an atom bomb while ConvenientPlotDevice has Fitzsimmons on Izel’s ship and Sarge commandeers the Zephyr.
Everything works out, kind of, except my pilot dude gets body-snatched and then we play Who’s Possessed?
I feel like someone does something to Sarge to get him vaguely redeemed-y?
Then everyone runs away to an Exotic Temple Location (must have been a Tomb Raider set at the lot sale), there’s some portal swapping and grim transdimensional beingness, I think, and May goes badass in a vestibule.
Everyone runs around, there’s a zombie attack on a bunch of places, and FitzSimmons make some sort of Separated For Our Own Good Featuring Timey-Wimey deal to rescue everyone, only Simmons has to be unemotional about it for Reasons.
There’s lots of mortal peril, but I don’t think anyone dies. May’s pretty close, though — doesn’t Simmons take her out on a stretcher?
Oh, and we have LMD Coulson, because in a show where AIs have already built human bodies we couldn’t make him for realsie reals to create a May/Coulson happy ending. Or at least, not until Show Finale.
