Trivia

Skye mentions receiving information from a contact named Micro, "a bit of a crime enthusiast." This is arguably a reference to the Marvel Comics character David Linus "Microchip/Micro" Lieberman, an ally/friend of Frank Castle, A.K.A. The Punisher. See more »

Goofs

(possibly intentional) When Grant Ward arrives at the Goldbrix Tavern, the sign on the door clearly reads Closed, but he walks right in and the bartender is behind the bar ready to serve drinks. See more »

Quotes

Alphonso 'Mack' Mackenzie: Replaced memories, jumbled memories how the hell is he supposed to keep everything together? What if he forgets what team he's on? You know, I like my bosses un-jumbled at all times.
Leo Fitz: Yeah, he is, or he will be. He'll recover. He did before. Besides, brains never delete files. They just lose connections. But there's always a backup. Just a matter of digging and finding them.
Alphonso 'Mack' Mackenzie: So you've got back up files too?

My gosh!
11 November 2014 | by nmgtheoSee all my reviews

First of all, my gosh that episode was awesome! And 9.9/10 on IMDb (at the time of this review)? I know it's right after the episode but dang.... looks like this was the best episode so far. All the other episode didn't even break 9. Not that that's bad. A solid 8 is still good. I'm hoping I don't jinx it for this episode though. This episode is one you would not want to miss. There was not too many big reveals but a lot of excitement and information nonetheless. So watch it before you watch the next one or else you will be horribly confused. And now, I leave you with my final words: this episode was good, and this review is spoiler free. Goodnight!
