Anyone else pick up on the namedropping of S.W.O.R.D.(finally)? (ETA Disregard, I thought Deke said SWORD people but he said smart people. That's what I get for watching while kids making noise)

That's not exactly name dropping.

Pretty obvious what she aiming at though. Her lines were "SPEAR or something".

Definitely look forward to next week to see Fitz's side of things. However, I worry that it may take several episodes of showing his journey before he catches up to the team, before the plot progresses much again. Either way, Fitz's side of things should fill in some holes, and could be very well told.
With all due respect, what you call "filler", I consider "character development and plot movement".

S.W.O.R.D. was already mentioned in a deleted scene from Thor.

Anyone notice that the music in that last scene starting with the ship flying into land, was very Blade Runner-esque?

Lots of interesting plot lines being set up here. I'm excited to see how the events unfolded for Fitz. And I'm sure May is alive (I hope ).

I'm just glad Fitz will finally be back.

Pretty sure S.P.E.A.R. is the Chinese version of Shield.
