Did You Know?


When Coulson uncovers the Cybertek files on the Deathlok program, he notes how the program goes back to the 90's. The original Deathlok (Luther Manning) was introduced in 1974, but set in a post-apocalyptic future of 1990. The second Deathlok (John Kelly) was introduced in his own comic series in July 1990.

After Grant and Buddy were in the woods for six months, Buddy looks very nicely trimmed and groomed. Grant's hair looks the same as it did at Juvenile Hall as well, but that could be a choppy cut he gives himself. The dog's grooming takes more specialized tools unlikely to be available in the woods.

Phil Coulson: Oh, my God. Is that a handheld hypno-beam?
Antoine Triplett: One of the original betas. See how it has the switch on the bottom?
Phil Coulson: The production models moved it to the side. This is amazing. Almost as cool as...
Phil CoulsonAntoine Triplett: Transistorized blast gun.
[both laugh]
Skye: Ah, ha, ha. Okay. The two of you can get a room later, but we have a plane to catch.

The First Deathlok (SPOILER ALERT)
30 November 2014 | by (Massachusetts, United States) – See all my reviews

This episode is where things get the hang of it. This episode blew me away because it revealed a lot of Ward's past and Garrett's past before his demise in Beginning of the End. The episode revealed a lot before season two. It helped explain why HYDRA is so manipulative. It was not as good as "The Things We Bury" or "T.A.H.I.T.I." or "Turn, Turn, Turn". This episode makes Ward like Terra from Kingdom Hearts and Garrett like Xehanort from the same franchise. Ward is also my favorite character from SHIELD. I think he is much better than Bucky Barnes. This episode also explains the difference between a Night-Night Gun and an I.C.E.R.
