@  unitremover : (22 February 2017 - 09:36 PM)

I haven't been up there in a while but one of the Walmarts around here still has AOE deluxes out. Some of the CVSs do too.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 February 2017 - 09:34 PM)

It's been the same thing in local stores for ages up here.

@  BlackMax : (22 February 2017 - 09:33 PM)

One near me is the same - I swear they have over forty Deluxes there, all from many months ago.

My Walmart had a Generations Rattrap hanging for the past 2 and a half years, and in trying to clearance it, inadvertently marked down the entire Generations Deluxe assortment.

A shelf warmer's ultimate revenge: being around long enough that in trying to clearance it...the store marks down the entire SKU!

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 February 2017 - 07:59 AM)

Eh, he would've gotten beaten up if the government sent just about anyone.

@  Pennpenn : (22 February 2017 - 07:56 AM)

Regardless, literally everything I've ever seen (and a lot on tfwiki) attributes Megatron's slide into violence to Whirl beating him up while in custody. Maybe not like flicking a switch but Megatron's line "You made me. You taught me words were weightless without force" kinda spells it out.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 February 2017 - 07:38 AM)

I'm not sure if there even was a specific turning point, but he didn't seem kill happy yet when he was with Terminus, and that was after Whirl beating him up.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 February 2017 - 07:24 AM)

It was also before any sort of uprising or him actually doing much of anything.

@  Pennpenn : (22 February 2017 - 07:20 AM)

I mean, the whole thing didn't start as "the great war". It was an uprising that eventually morphed into a the war.

@  Pennpenn : (22 February 2017 - 07:17 AM)

Yeah, of course it's before the war, Whirl beating Megatron while he was in custody was the tipping point that made Megatron turn violent.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 February 2017 - 05:12 AM)

But the thing with Whirl was before he started the war.

@  Pennpenn : (22 February 2017 - 03:28 AM)

Like so many awful things in that universe, it's basically Whirl's fault.

@  Telly : (22 February 2017 - 12:51 AM)

for about 10 minutes. then he got all kill happy

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (21 February 2017 - 10:27 PM)

Wouldn't IDW Megatron kind of count since his main reason for instigating the Great War was to overthrow the Functionist social order?

For the record? I'm kinda sick of LMDs at this point. I hope this arc comes to an end soon, because it's feeling a little old.

 

Also, Radcliffe's plan to grant humanity immortality? Death's better than that.

An earlier episode revealed that Radcliffe had constructed an LMD of himself - that was the other LMD in play beside the one of May.

 

Can't say anything about the framework, however, but I don't think everyone went in.

Just because Radcliffe turned out to be an LMD, doesn't preclude that another LMD was in play. Remember, Radcliffe also said that the other LMD might have a shot at the Darkhold.

Radcliffe also said he had no chance to grab the Darkhold. Hence why I'm not convinced he was talking about his own LMD.

As for the framework, we saw Coulson & Daisy Skyquake jump in together. The we later saw Mack tearing off his helmet & berating Fitz for creating such a thing.

As in, it was so amazingly good I'm not sure I'll be able to make it until April for the follow up. Fine episode. Kept me guessing straight to the end.

I really hope the whole remaining story-arc isn't built around Daisy and Jemma gathering up the troops within the framework.  That would make it difficult to tie-up the Ghost Rider story from the beginning of the season.

 

I want them all out within two espisodes, max, and have them all just move on.

I really wish the writers would remember that Jemma survived on her own in Hell World for quite a while, and as traumatized as that left her in the short term, she shouldn't be the "panics the instant things go sour" damsel in distress.

 

Also, Daisy has Rasengan, apparently.

That was my initial reaction to the scene, too...but, upon further reflection, she just looked a perfectly convincing Fitz straight into his eyes while stabbing him to death in the most intimate way.

I think she just went into shock.

An

 

Episode.

 

 

Jed Whedon can write and direct more as far as I'm concerned, that was amazing.

 

As far as the returning Hydra and Ward: I don't mind. I know it's fake world, so I think Ward may get that final redemption arc. And this season has been so great, I don't think we're going to be dropping the ball at this stage. (God, I hope we don't).

The latter more than the former, for me.

This episode was one of the whole show's best, and I've been reasonably invested this season in comparison to the last two, which just seemed interminable. Actual twists and stakes I care about will do that. This ep (following from the immediate previous one, and the build they've done so far) delivers -- gutpunch after gutpunch.

Wonderful performances too. Ming-Na has gotten opportunities to stretch a bit from her normally stoic character frame, and makes each showing count. And Natasha and Iain are SO GOOD. (I actually had to think a bit to remember their real names because their show names seem such better matches now, haha.)

Hey,

Spoiler

 

 

It's been a few days.  I'm skipping the spoiler tags.

 

Totally agree on Fitz's behavior.  I was thinking the same thing.

 

Also, regarding Hydra and the framework.  In the framework. the characters are able to live their lives without their regrets.  Coulson's regret was becoming a Shield agent.  As noted by the Russian, Coulsen is so central to the MCU, both with the Avengers and Shield, that without him, Hydra wins.
