Looking Back on Seven Years
For seven years Marvel's Agents of SHIELD has taken us on many intriguing adventures. From the introductions of the Inhumans to our first live action experience with LMDs, Jay and Josh have analyzed and discussed the beloved series as they explored the darkest depths of the Marvel universe. Now, one last time, they look back on the series and hear from listeners that have experienced Coulson and his team save the world again and again. Plus, they take a look at what's in store for the cast and crew in the future. Join your hosts as they turn in their badges to enjoy the quiet life on the final episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Case Files.
The End is at Hand & What We're Fighting For
"The End is at Hand". Do you know "What We're Fighting For"? The Agents of SHIELD complete their last mission as a team when they infiltrate the Chronicom's ship and save Simmons and Deke. They survive an attack on the Lighthouse from John Garret where they reunite to put all the pieces of Fitz's plan together. Luckily, that involves finally finding him too. They may have to say goodbye to a friend, but all will be revealed as they make their way back to the original timeline and bring the Chronicoms with them. In the final confrontation, they'll have to be there for each other and be unpredictable. Ultimately, our heroes will be triumphant and we will have to say farewell. Jay and Josh fit together the final pieces of a seven-year-long puzzle as they discuss the series finale on this week's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Case Files.
Brand New Day
It's a "Brand New Day" for our heroes. But even though they have successfully recaptured Afterlife and imprisoned the mercenaries and Kora, Malick and Garrett have escaped with the Zephyr into space. Because the bad guys can predict their every move, they try to act unpredictably. Daisy, Sousa, and Mack follow them to space in the Quinjet while the rest of the team tries to convince Kora that she can be good. But she proves otherwise when she shuts down the lighthouse, giving Sybil access to the SHIELD mainframe. Coulson uses his newly acquired computer code knowledge to slow her down, but they can't stop her. The newly summoned fleet of Chronicoms eventually destroys just about all the SHIELD bases. Malick tries to get the location of Fitz from Simmons by going straight into her mind. But that leads to some very nasty consequences for Simmons. Jay and Josh attempt to storm Nakatomi Plaza during the penultimate show breakdown on this week's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Case Files.
When things are "Stolen", the good guys must make it right. In 1983 Nathaniel Malick is determined to create anarchy everywhere. He steals the powers of the captured Inhumans and give them to his mercenaries. And he's recruited a young John Garrett to help him by having Sybil show him what his future holds. Our heroes must protect Jiaying from them and free Afterlife. But Malick has the upper hand. And it may be that he's not really after Jiaying at all. Jay and Josh promise to give the powers back after they're finished with them–honestly–on this week's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Case Files.
As I Have Always Been
"As I Have Always Been" tells a tear-jerker of a story when the Zephyr gets stuck in a time loop that causes the team to repeat the same short moments over and over. But they only have a limited amount of time to stop it before their ultimate destruction. Luckily, Daisy and Coulson are able to remember what has happened each time they loop. However, the key to saving everyone lies in the brain of Jemma Simmons and they can't get to it without removing the chip in her head which will spell certain defeat from a pre-programmed Enoch. If they are going to survive, it may mean the ultimate sacrifice for one of our heroes. Jay and Josh just keep looking up what the word 'phlebotenum' means on this week's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Case Files.
The team goes to "After, Before" when the Zephyr jumps uncontrollably through time. Yo-Yo may be the only hope to save them before it's too late, but she'll need her powers. So she and May take a trip to Afterlife to visit Inhuman expert Jiayang. The rest of the battered team stays on board to try to do what they can, but time is ticking away. After a few tests, they realize that Yo-Yo's trouble is mental, not physical. With May's help she'll come to terms with her past. But trouble brews outside of Afterlife when Nathaniel Malick show up and persuades an Inhuman to help him infiltrate the sanctuary. This mission is far from over as dangers seem to appear around every corner. Jay and Josh wait for their legs to print on this week's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Case Files.
