    The last episode - both in terms of story-line and production order - was "Behind Gold Eyes".

    It looks like those 5 digital shorts released before the season premiered were the 3rd episode split into 5 separate mini-episodes. I kind of doubt at this point there's one more episode left they're withholding.

    I guess they were toying around with a red color scheme :cool:.

    Y'know, I actually kind of miss Ronan...

    I think he gave up and rejoined the Kree. He still needs to torment the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. at some point after these events.

    After losing some inches, gaining a few pounds, and getting a completely different voice :p.

    Maybe they have better plans for doing an MAU guidebook than a 100+ page kid's book?

    I think it would be fascinating if they did the same approach as the "Official Guidebook of the MCU" comic series. If Marvel has enough confidence in chronicling their animated universe.

    I'd have been interested if it had actual production notes or creator insight in there, although I imagine for the most part it would've just been traditional character bios or episode summaries summing up storylines from the shows and trying to make it feel like they're all in one cohesive continuity.

    I still find it strange to base a season around a theme park ride, but I guess it's nice to know Lane had some personal investment in it :sweat:.

    "There are a lot of big guest stars in the season and there are some huge Marvel characters, including probably the most exciting character to have team up with the Guardians, who appears in episode one." I'm guessing that's Spider-Man ;)?

    I can pretty much figure out how Peter and Rocket will spend their money, but I am curious to see what Gamora, Drax, and Groot use theirs for :).

    I love the Mission Breakout ride, but it seems like the actual breakout won't be more than a couple episodes. It seems more like the season will be built around the Guardians as fugitives and being framed for a crime they didn't commit. I think that works for the Guardians, but will see how much steam they can actually get out of that premise for an entire season of animation.

    That sounds about right for a sub-title in a Marvel cartoon :p.

    Well, they've got Black Vortex and a variant on Secret Invasion coming up, so that'll probably keep things dynamic ;).

    There will probably be three big arcs next season, each one running for about 8 episodes, but there might be some filler in there, plus an episode they'll split into shorts.

    The Guardians being framed and becoming fugitives kind of reminds be of Hulk & the Agents of SMASH, though I think it should work better here.

    Looks like the plan is to finish Avengers: Secret Wars in March and then premiere Guardians season 3 afterwards.

    I'm guessing "Back in the New York Groove" is the Spider-Man episode.

    The new Season is premiering sooner than I expected, but come to think of it it is similar to when Season 2 premiered last year (March 11th, but then it was a longer break since Avengers ended it's Season in January).

    We should also get another batch of animated shorts before the show comes back (even if they're probably an episode split into smaller segments again).
