The outfit Nick Fury wears in this episode is exactly the same outfit he is seen wearing in the last scene of Captain America: Winter Soldier--sunglasses, a beanie, and a leather jacket and hoodie instead of his usual eye patch and trench coat. See more »


Fitz tells Simmons that he broke his arm in the same place as he did in '2nd grade' , but Fitz is Scottish and in Scotland the schooling system doesn't go up in grades but instead calls each year 'primary one , primary two , etc' ,the Scottish equivalent to '2nd grade' is primary four so he would have never been in 'second grade' and neither would Simmons as she is from England and would have been in 'year three' instead of 'second grade' See more »


Jemma Simmons: What do you think it's like?
Leo Fitz: Death? Well, depends on the method, really. Drowning's supposed to be quite pleasant in the end, apparently. Once the water fills up your lungs...
Jemma Simmons: I mean after.
Leo Fitz: Ah, yeah. Well, my mum always said that you shouldn't be afraid because it's just like the way life was before you were born which wasn't that bad, was it?
Jemma Simmons: That's sweet. Though, apparently, I was miserable before I was born upside down, umbilical cord all wrapped around my head.

What the the Whole Series Should have been
24 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode takes what was best about the Avengers and places it into a lower budget hour. I was hoping for an episode like this, unfortunately to get to it, it required quite a few average episodes that have very little action, excitement, laughs or any real importance to the marvel universe. With a surprise cameo. Some awesome twists at the end, it is possible one of my favorite season finales ever. My only real complaint is that the show took so long to get to this point. I mean, the shows fairly average and for a show with the name marvel that many would expect a show with this much hype to be awesome. But it was just average. So I hope as they go on into the next season they continue the cross overs from the movies and maybe, fingers-crossed, an avenger to cameo in an episode. If they do I think they can get back the fans they lost and create the show it was suppose to be.
