So at the end of season six, the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. were on their way to the past. New York City 1930’s to be exact. If they’re not careful, they could cause some serious time fluctuations, right? Daisy (Chloe Bennet) thinks they may have already altered time just by walking through NYC. You know…the Butterfly Effect. Maybe…Deke subscribes to a different time travel theory.
In this sneak peak, Deke explains his time stream theory to LMD Coulson (Clark Gregg), Daisy, and Director Mackenzie (Henry Simmons). He says time is like a stream of water. They are sticks that are thrown into the stream. The water and the stick move around, but all ends up in the same place. If there are too many sticks, it creates a dam. The dam will change the direction of the water and that’s when things get bad. This make so much sense to me and also has me wondering how many sticks the Agents will throw into the water this season.
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. also stars Ming-Na Wen, Elizabeth Henstridge, Iain De Caestecker, and Natalia Cordova-Buckley. Kevin Tanchareon directed the season seven premiere episode, “The New Deal.” Here’s the synopsis:
Coulson and the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. are thrust backward in time and stranded in 1931 New York City. With the all-new Zephyr set to time-jump at any moment, the team must hurry to find out exactly what happened. If they fail, it would mean disaster for the past, present and future of the world.
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns Wednesday, May 27 at 10 PM Eastern on ABC.
