    they probably have the rest of the season already written and filmed, waiting for ABC.

    Yeah, it's more likely to effect a possible fifth season if anything.

    They finished filming this season last week (there were articles on the 18th indicating filming had wrapped)

    With the Darkhold-technology-based machine being built, it seems its possible to bring people in the Framework to life. So with that assumption, it should be possible to bring back dead characters, such as Ward, Trip and, if by some reason Mace survived (after Aida deactivated his connection and thus unable to observe his revival in the Framework), The Patriot.

    P.S. New to the site. Nice to meet you all.

    That was one quick reply. Thanks :p

    Feel free to point out any flaws in my theories. Getting all hyped up with all these self-brewed theories with no one to share with is a pain. Don't know why I didn't find discussion threads like this sooner.

    Ward has a motive for staying. his version of syke.

    tripp, hope, radcliff and evil fitz seem the candidates to leave the framework.

    gemma said getting it to work takes a lot of energy so possibly not all of them.

    That's true. Perhaps have him hook up to the "Real World" through a Framework-like terminal in the Framework as an LMD?

    I am not sure if Radcliff would wanna be back after losing Agnes. Probably wanna have the Framework dismantled.

    Hope would be a sweet candidate.


    Well lets hope they make the right choice then :p

    I just hope that there won't be a situation where someone who shouldn't step into the Looking Glass Machine stepped into it...

    I was thinking the same thing and was coming here to post the same thing. One other person who could cone out of the framework...Mac's daughter.

    Tbh, I'm rooting for Victoria Hand to come out, but I know that's not going to happen. Ideally Trip or Hope would be great.

    The tech would seem to allow them to bring people from the framework. However, even if they look the same as dead characters, they are not the same characters. They're copies that may be similar or not so similar. In the case of Mace, it would be a perfect match or almost so, since they have a brain scan up to the moment of death, and that machine gets either all of the info from the brain, or nearly all. In the case of other agents, they at best have some old SHIELD brain scan (if that) not designed to acquire the kind of info needed for the process. In the case of most people, they probably don't have any scans, so the copies would only distantly resemble the originals. I'm not sure what sort of scan (if any) they have of Ward, Hand, or Tripp.

    She could. But would the Mack of the outside world even remember her?
    After all, if the memories are back to the way they were before, he knows nothing about her. If he keeps both sets of memories, that would probably be a seriously confused Mack.

    Why wouldn't he? Radcliffe (when his real world body was still alive) was going in and out of the Framework to interact with Agnes and explore the world and what not, and he remembered what he'd experienced in the Framework (he would come out and talk to Aida about how real the Framework felt). So going by that, I don't see a reason as to why the others *wouldn't* remember. Yes, it'll result in some of them being seriously confused... or even regret that they were pulled out, but that may be part of how things end this season.

    Heh the writer's strike in the 70's gave birth to most the Marvel TV shows lol. I think even the two Hulk tv Movies with DD and Thor

    I expect two TV specials now with RuffaHulk battling Hemsworth Thor dressed as their TV counterparts and both of them failing to hold down a helicopter. Then I hope to see Ruffalo with a beard who transforms into a beardless Hulk and encountering Charlie Cox's DD in his black proto costume.

    But Radcliffe also remembered in the Framework everything he had experienced out of the Framework; there was continuity, and the memories were not altered. If Framework Mack came out of the Framework with Framework Mack's memories, he would remember her, but he wouldn't remember his life as a SHIELD agent. But on the other hand, they are to restore his earlier memories, they may have to - for example - reset his brain to the latest scan with the real memories, and if so, that would make him lose the memories from inside the Framework. In short, as near as I can tell, there are three "live" options:

    1. He remembers both Real World Mack and Framework Mack. That would make him very confused (which is real?), perhaps overwhelm his ability to remember (brains have limited capacity), and in any case, change him considerably.
    2. He remembers only Real Mack. Everything from the Framework is lost.
    3. He remembers only the real experiences in the Framework, i.e., what happened to him while he was hooked up, plus fake memories he consciously recalled during that period, and no more.

    I don't know which one will be the case.

    Side note: I'm speaking as if "he" would lose the memories, keep the memories, etc., assuming we're talking about the same person for the sake of convenience because I wasn't trying to get into the metaphysics of identity, but the issue of identity is complicated at least. There is also the question of whether one of the worlds is or isn't "real", etc., but I'm leaving that aside too.

    After further consideration, I think Aida is guilty. Framework Radcliffe brings complex issues of synchronicity vs. diachronicity in moral responsibility, so I'm undecided for now.

    I gotta say.. this last half of the season has been the best shield has done in a long while... it feels like watching a mini-series movie.. its all very well crafted

    Well in regards to Ward I want him back specifically because he is different in all the right ways but still has some similarities to Ward, as for Tripp they would want him back because he'd possess the face of their friend and seems to behave similarly enough that while they'd have to adjust it would still be like getting their friend back.

    Out of Ward, Tripp, and Hope I think Hope is the most likely. Ward was wearing pretty thin even before Hive, plus what's he going to do the real world knows him as a hydra agent, with shield being legitimate they can't have him as an agent. Maybe have him quietly retire to the cabin, giving him a happy ending he always pictured. Tripp would be awesome, I was really annoyed that he died would love to have him back. Hope would be a nice happy ending for something good to come out of all of the craziness.

    I was impatient enough to go back and watch "What If..." again, it's wild to watch Ward's scenes again knowing that he's the inside man.

    I guessed he might, in order to purge AIDA of the Darkhold.

    And why is this in spoiler tags? This news is on the front page of the Hype.
