Apparently this is the season six logo for Marvel's Agents of SHIELD:
But what's this have to do with Peggy Carter?
IIRC that's the original logo for SHIELD back when it was first formed, by Peggy, Howard, and Col. Philips.
Maybe season 6 is going to be the time travel season?
Exactly. I think it may involve travelling through SHIELD's past and resolving Agent Carter's lingering plot threads.
That's an idea season 6 has Peggy Carter end up in the present. I'd watch that.
I would adore it if she and Howard ended up in the present, even for just a little while. I would love to see young Howard's reaction to what Tony has accomplished. He'd be so blown away! (But what they go back to would have to be an alternate timeline because the Howard Tony knows is part of the reason he's done all the things he has and they can't mess with that.) But if they went into the past and we got to see fledgling SHIELD I wouldn't mind that either.
We did time travel this season. I don't see them doing it 2 seasons in a row.
That was forward. This would be back.
They did time travel back to the present. Backwards, forwards, it's still a plot device they've already used.
Ugh I'd hate more time travel. I'd be down for a full flash back anthology ep though. I'm sure there's some Agent Carter season 3 script ideas floating around.
I'd rather they just bring Agent Carter back for a third season.
Doesn't matter. Time travel is time travel. They would just be treading the same ground.
I'm on board with that. Maybe even have flash backs throughout the season which leads to the founding of SHIELD and the first Agents of SHIELD and a mysterious threat originating there.
Yeah, and that doesn't matter either. How many times are they going to fight Hydra? Hell. How many times did they fight Ward?
Regardless of when this is being aired, going into the past is the smartest play because then they don't have to worry about a single episode not crossing over with any of the movies anymore. Plus, a lot of the audience would still like to see more of SHIELD's formative years, feeling a bit robbed when ABC cancelled Agent Carter. (But they don't have to actually include Peggy or Howard if the actors aren't available.) Nothing in any of their conflicts was even remotely like SHIELD in the late 40s/early 50s, so that alone would set it apart. In tone, style, the resources the team has available, how they go about solving the problem without actually screwing up the present, unlike how they behaved in the future where they clearly didn't care what they did as long as it got them home.
Actually, that would probably be more fun than Coulson and co finding themselves in the past.
They could use the 'Doctor Who logic' of when multiple Doctors are returned to their correct time when taken out of their timestream they forget the events which unfolded, and apply it to Peggy Carter and Howard Stark in AoS.
Does it matter? There are different types of time travel stories; they aren't all the same.
They wouldn't though. That's like saying every case in a detective drama is the same.
Could be great, but we know that she grows old and dies [in the present], so would time change, or would she end up back in the past - and if so, would that be by choice or circumstance?
Just take one of the last 13 episodes and have the present team researching something in the past to solve the current problem. And we get to see Agent Carter and her team dealing with the prototype and completing the story arc of moving from the S.S.R. to S.H.I.E.L.D.
I reckon she'd end up back in the past, because the SHIELD agents know she is supposed to die as an old lady in the present and therefore Peggy staying with them would cause too many catastrophic ripples to time.
Indeed it would. I remember reading a fanfic about a year where Peggy Carter ends up in the future and helps Coulson rebuild SHIELD and nothing changes time line wise as a result.
If they bring her from an alternate dimension to the currently accepted dimension, then she would exist in both places. Old Peggy could still die in CACW, and young Peggy could take over running SHIELD in Coulson's absence. Then again, they could snag Coulson from the alternate dimension prior to Loki stabbing him, and bring him too, thus negating his death.
I can't see Agents of SHIELD going into multiverse stuff. I think the Framework will remain the closest to that.
