Review Quotes


The story flashes back to the diner from which Team Coulson was kidnapped, only this time the audience follows the perspective of Fitz, who was left behind.

Captured by the military and taken to a secret prison, he is interrogated heavily until they finally start to believe that he doesn't actually know what happened to them.

With their begrudging approval, he puts his mind to work trying to figure out the answer, but comes up with little useful theories after a full six months.

Then who should show up but Lance Hunter, impersonating Fitz's attorney! He quickly engineers an escape, and they look into the team's disappearance on their own.

They track down the man who took them, who is expecting them, oddly enough. He identifies himself as Enoch, an alien anthropologist, who is getting information from a seer who sees the future.

The seer turns out to be a little girl, an Inhuman. She has seen the end of the world, and now Fitz needs to get to the future to help his friends. After evading the military, they all go a mysterious facility underneath a lighthouse.

Enoch offers Fitz a way to get to the future: he arrive on Earth in a cryo-stasis pod, which is now in the hands of the military. Fitz and Hunter steal it back from them (along with a S.H.I.E.L.D. plane).

After Fitz and Hunter make their farewells, Fitz goes into stasis. Enoch wakes him up seventy years later and prepares him for his plan to help his friends.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 5 Episode 5 Quotes

Fitz: Well, at least you gave me enough time to come up with a good escape plan. So, it’s a mechanism that can slowly assemble, but I’m gonna need you to smuggle it in piece by piece. So, if you can visit three times a week for a month, then I should have everything I need-- what’re you doing?
Hunter [staring at his watch]: I’m gonna need you to move two meters to your left. Mm-hm. And come forward. [He presses a button, and the wall explodes.]
Fitz: What… the bloody *hell*?!
Hunter: Your coded message didn’t have an escape plan, so I had to come up with one of my own. Come on! Let’s go.

Fitz: They printed my letters in the last *six issues*. You ball-busting hooligan.
Hunter: And how many copies do you think are available in *Bangladesh*? None, as in *zero*. Soon as I heard you were missing, I got hold of some. What did you get off on calling Liverpool a bunch of wankers?!
Fitz: Well, if you never win anything--
Hunter: Well, at least we aren’t going to buy our way back to glory!
