4x19 (85) All the Madame's Men "The Bakshi Report with Sunil Bakshi" - the title reminded of "The Colbert Report," that had to be a nod. lol. It was a nice detail for them to remember Daisy isn't 100% after Terrigenesis like in season 2 and couldn't use her powers to the maximum then nodding to how it still felt like a hangover made of bees. The conversation between Coulson and Ward was just pure gold. Alluding to Fury, retelling the story of how he got recruited from season 1, Ward retelling his but with the different of his recruiter being Hand instead of Garrett -- brilliant writing. A bit subtle but pretty neat that Daisy and May jacked a run down Charger as a nod to Robbie Reyes and the Hellcharger. Simmons comment to Trip was so meta - "I always meant to ask you about that" - since they never revealed which Howlin' Commando Trip was related to. So great to see the team almost completely reunited. Nice touch that Coulson stepped out in front of May and talked down Mack. Then follow up with May having deja vu about doing his tie -- she did so in season 3 because he had a hard time using his prosthetic at the time. Another great touch was this version of Trip is still the cool guy we all know and love. Him accepting Simmons' theory right away and "Come on, girl" was such a nice callback. Unexpected but it was nice to see Daisy come to terms with Ward, Framework and real world. Didn't expect much humor given Mace's death but Daisy's line about the blonde woman gawking at them, "Maybe she's just racist. Or starstruck." was pretty awesome. Or the real world references with the furniture bit and Coulson using the "alternate facts" term was amusing. But the most brutal, Alistair turning on a dime and pummeling Radcliffe. Geez. So rewarding to see Aida finally take a hit getting quaked out of the Triskelion. But tying it all together... Aida's plan to become a real person using the Framework, Fitz, knowledge of the Darkhold, Eli Morrow's tech -- brilliant stuff. The Looking Glass was a decent curve ball. The implications are mind blowing. Totally called the possibility of evil Fitz being the next Big Bad but the idea of using that tech -- can it be used to bring back dead characters on the show like Mace, Trip, Ward, Agnes or Hope as well? Or just the main cast who're connected to the Framework?
