This episode was written as a potential series finale, but it was eventually renewed for a 6th season. See more »


In the shot where the Remorath ship is heading towards the downtown area, the view of Chicago is backwards and the ship is heading south. In the next scene, where the ship crash-lands on top of some Chicago office buildings, the view of the city is correct, but the ship is now heading north. Buildings like the Willis Tower and AON Center are on both sides of the former John Hancock Center between the two shots. See more »


Daisy 'Skye' Johnson: You didn't take it.
Phil Coulson: It didn't feel right. It didn't feel like the way this was supposed to go. I'd have told you on the Zephyr, but you'd have pinned me down and jammed that syringe into my neck right there.
Daisy 'Skye' Johnson: Damn straight.
Phil Coulson: I'm sorry.
Daisy 'Skye' Johnson: You're the only one who can reach Talbot.
Phil Coulson: That's not true. And I think we may be beyond that. If so, you're the only one who can defeat him. Appeal to him as a military man. He took an oath when he enlisted.

User Reviews

best episode of the season, beacause...
10 July 2018 | by mwbenzSee all my reviews

It led up to this....

it was beautiful, frustrating and enlightening all within 43 minutes of airtime.

it gave us answers and want. both ends of the spectrum.

it fed some and it left some malnourished.

but, it doesn't take away from the fact that "network" television, (that is normally mediocre at best), allowed something to shine through -- regardless of its plot-holes and missing answers -- it gives you production value that allows you to transcend galaxies and pretend to wrap your head around the most complex (and benign) questions we're asking ourselves in 2018 (in our pop. cul. society).

<3 and hated it plot-wise, but the production value, acuity, cinematography, visual-effects are a few notches above anything in its league today, regardless of the sometimes laughable script-writing.

*** it's an escape from reality folks, and it does a great job of just that -- don't get too caught up in the plot-holes and you'll been in for a fantastic voyage.
