I LOVE THIS EPISODE! Everything about this episode is great, the concept and the execution are top notch, it is written by the showrunners, Jed and Mo, my heroes! and directed by the always excellent Kevin Tancharoen, so you know the action is great! I love how they handled seeing the future, the show has a unique take on the change the future idea and it's really nice to have, and this episode has a scene where Fitz explains spacetime, and I learned what that means from it! I also really love the team dynamics in this episode, the training sequences are pure gold!
