In tonight’s episode Fitz said he invented the Mouse Hole device but it was shelved. Garret then says the top brass gets all the good toys.
Fury used a device to get out of his car before the HYDRA agents could apprehend him. Maria Hill used it to get the Cap, Falcon, and Widow out of that armored car.
I’m so proud of my bb boy.
Good job Agent Fitz.
CBR: You’ve said from the start that there’s always been a plan and that you’ve been following it — was the massive Hydra infiltration and the fallout therein always part of the show from its original conception?
Maurissa Tancharoen: Yes sir.
Whedon: In our very first conversations with Joss, we were talking about what the show could be, and the challenges and opportunities a S.H.I.E.L.D. show would bring. We were discussing, all sort of on the same page, and there was a moment — “Oh, there is this one other thing.”
Tancharoen: Joss said, “Oh, any by the way, towards the end of your season, this happens. So let’s try and build a season around that.” That’s what we’ve done. So we’ve known about it from the outset. It puts us in a bit of a pickle, but it’s something we found both challenging, and also looked at as a very unique opportunity. It’s been thrilling for us to roll out the back half, now that “Captain America” is out.
Reactions to Captain America 2?
We’ll go first: !!!!!!!!!
stars-inthe-sky asked: I've been hearing different things regarding tonight's (4/1) episode of Agents of SHIELD and spoilers for Captain America: The Winter Soldier. I know there's going to be some overlap, but do you know what the "recommended" viewing order is supposed to be? Some folks have been saying tonight's episode contains major spoilers for the movie, but it's not clear if that's for international audiences (who I guess already got the movie) or Americans (like me, who are still waiting). Help?
No spoilers here, so read on if this question interests you.
Caveat: I haven’t seen either episode or the movie yet myself (also an American here). But from what the cast are saying on Twitter and the general PR going on, the intended viewing order is tonight’s AoS episode, then the movie, then next week’s AoS. My impression is that the tv episodes are intended to be like bookends for the movie.
Keep in mind, Marvel is smart and cautious. They’ve built a cinematic universe where you can watch the Avengers without necessarily seeing the preceding movies and still understand the characters and plot. But if you do watch all of them in the recommended order, there’s a layer of extra “aha!” moments that you pick up on. It’s fun, and you get a sense of bigger things going on, but it isn’t essential. I expect it’s going to be the same thing here, more or less. It wouldn’t be smart or cautious to make the movie or the the tv show truly dependent on each other. Not with international releases varying as they do.
So no, I don’t expect there are major spoilers in one for the other. From what I’ve heard it sounds like things that happen in the movie have implications for the tv show, and it sounds like the tv show gives you some extra context for the movie. Reading between the lines of some spoiler free movie reviews, it sounds like there’s an extra layer of “aha!” for the AoS fans. I wouldn’t worry if you can’t watch in the recommended order.
