Trivia

Coulson mentions the Pym technologies disaster to Fitz while Fitz is trying find out information about the monolith. This is a reference to Ant-Man (2015), which came out two months prior to the new season. See more »

Goofs

The Terrigen Crystals and Mist give superpowers to those with Inhuman lineage, but kill anyone else they come in contact with. When it was released in the ecosystem in the fish oil supplements, there should have been biotransformations and fatalities, but none of the latter have been reported yet.

Actually, the crystals themselves, as explained my Skye's mom, only affect inhumans. It's the outer metal shielding of the Diviner that is lethal to regular humans. One of the main characters was killed in the temple after the shards had stabbed him. Skye's mom's crystals had contained the metal since she had been unable to leach them after melting down one of the diviners. However, as Morse explains in the third season, the crystals melted in the water, leaving the metal behind, making the fish oil inert to all, except of course, the inhumans. See more »

Quotes

Leo Fitz: Okay, listen, because I'm only gonna say this once. I've already lost a friend. And it may sound strange, but to get her back I need to understand the properties of an ancient monolith. Now, I've learned it was buried in the Yucatan after being dragged around the Earth for a few hundred years. And originally found where there were artifacts, mostly worthless, except one. A scroll casing over a thousand years old. The casing holds a parchment which reportedly describes exactly what this monolith...

I turn my back, this show gets great
7 October 2015 | by XweAponXSee all my reviews

Honestly I hated Skye. Er, I mean Daisy Johnson. I stopped watching this show after S01e10, right before they revealed that Coulson's trip to T.a.h.i.t.i. was a trip to a Guest House that was housing a Guest Host from Kree.

A lot of things have happened since then. Hydra takes over. A Guy with No Eyes who can Teleport shows up. Shield vs Shield. Skye meets her dad - And her mum, who apparently never ages. Inhumans. Visits from Asgardians, even flashbacks to Agent Carter's days with the SSR and the 107th "Howlin Commandos". And finally, a rock that the Inhumans were scared of swallows the Simmons half of the Fitz-Twins whole. But they had not really been twins for most of S02, after being being dunked in the ocean and Fitz was brain-dead.

It was hard to see who exactly were the bad guys and who were the good guys. That's what made it interesting.

But at the end of S02, some blue goop that changes people into aliens somehow gets into fish-oil pills. That's where this starts. Shield is now a rogue agency, but there is another agency running about trying to capture New-Inhumans. Except, that the New-Inhumans are mostly showing up dead before either Coulson or these new guys can get to them. The reason for this is rather creepy.

From Season 1 to Season 3, these characters have gotten much more developed. These people have had enough Future Shock dumped on them to kill 100,000 Alvin Tofflers. And they never put a fishbowl on the side of Coulson's plane... Well, too late now. And is it too late for Simmons? If left up to Fitz, hell no: Fitz who confronts middle eastern terrorists just to get a Hebrew Scroll that might have a clue as to what this Rock that turns into liquid occasionally is. I have to agree that the Fitz character has gotten much more interesting.
