  • Rodriguez and Mackenzie get Flint to Zephyr One, where Piper starts giving him first aid. Mackenzie tells Piper about the Shrike zombies, and Flint comments about his first time seeing the Zephyr and jungle. Mackenzie pulls Piper aside and asks her to fly Flint back to the base, telling her that he and Rodriguez are going to return to the temple and provide backup for Johnson, May, and Sarge.[14][3]
  • Sarge and May hear Izel's song, which Sarge says indicates that she is close to opening a portal to her world. May says she is not afraid, but Sarge admits he is. Sarge tells May that even if he gets the ancient entity out of his head, he still will not be Coulson, but May says that nonetheless, there is good in him.[14][3]
  • Scared of the Shrike hosts, Shaw teleports himself as far as the semi-charged ShawDrive will take him, ending up in the jungle, where he finds more Shrike hosts who attack him. Shaw leaves the ShawDrive behind and follows Simmons' instructions to run to the nearby Quinjet.[14][3]

Johnson arrives at the Zephyr One

  • Mackenzie and Rodriguez prepare to leave, but Johnson arrives at the Zephyr and tells them that they are being chased by Shrike zombies and have to get the plane in the air.[14][3]
  • Izel continues to sing her song, and the Monoliths completely liquefy and start to take a new shape. Sarge gets a headache as Pachakutiq, the entity inside him, starts to come out and demands to be taken to Izel. Izel opens the portal.[14][3]
  • Johnson, Mackenzie, and Rodriguez start to fix the Zephyr, and Rodriguez and Mackenzie tell Johnson that Flint is with Piper on the Zephyr's Quinjet. Shrike hosts board the Zephyr while Mackenzie and Johnson argue about whether Flint is "real" and the decision to trust Sarge. The Shrike hosts attack, forcing Johnson, Mackenzie, and Rodriguez to fall back.[14][3]
  • Shaw arrives at the jungle Quinjet, and asks on comms if Fitz and Simmons could fly him out, but they cannot. Simmons assures him that he will be extracted soon.[14][3]
  • Fitz and Simmons watch Shaw's camera feed as May and Sarge confront Izel, and May threatens her. Sarge, however, insists that he be the one to kill Izel. He pins Izel down and goes to stab her with his sword, but finds that he cannot bring himself to.[14][3]

Johnson and Mackenzie argue

  • Mackenzie tells Johnson that bringing Sarge was the wrong move, but Johnson says the same to him about choosing to leave with Izel. They argue, and Mackenzie refers to Sarge as the Devil, which Johnson says he is not.[14][3]
  • Izel tells Sarge that the others are waiting for their signal, while May pleads with Sarge to be good. Sarge says that he is angry and afraid of a pain in his heart, but May describes the pain as love. She talks as though Sarge were Coulson and begs him to remember S.H.I.E.L.D. and the love he feels for them. However, in order to end the pain, Sarge stabs May through the chest, before sending her through the portal.[14][3]
  • Isaiah meets with Enoch on Kitson. He tells Enoch that all of the Chronicom anthropologists have been reassigned as hunters, and then attacks his former colleague.[3] Enoch defeats Isaiah and takes his skin suit, assuming Isaiah's appearance so he can infiltrate the Chronicom Hunters.[14][22]
  • After watching Melinda May get pushed through the portal on Shaw's camera feed, Jemma Simmons hugs Leo Fitz as the rest of the agents in the control room mutter to themselves. Daisy Johnson calls and asks for help with the Shrike hosts, and Fitz and Simmons tell her about May.[14][22]

Malachi arrived in the Lighthouse

  • Ambush at the Lighthouse: Malachi and the Chronicom Hunters arrive in the Lighthouse via Inter-Planetary Conveyance Disc and shut down S.H.I.E.L.D.'s communications and satellites. They attack the base, and Malachi orders the Chronicoms to leave no prisoners.[14][22]
  • Johnson admits to Alphonso Mackenzie that she should not have trusted Sarge, and Yo-Yo Rodriguez tells Johnson to make May's apparent death mean something. Deke Shaw contacts Zephyr One, trying to get to Fitz. Mackenzie answers the call and Shaw asks for help escaping the Shrike hosts. Mackenzie gives instructions to attempt to fly the Quinjet, and Shaw follows them, but the throttle does not work.[14][22]
  • The Chronicoms take command of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s operating systems and lock down the Lighthouse. They discuss Enoch's fondness for S.H.I.E.L.D., saying that it made him weak. Malachi orders the hunters to find and kill all S.H.I.E.L.D. personnel, and instructs "Isaiah", who unbeknownst to him is Enoch in disguise, to find the key to the Toolbox.[14][22]

Simmons discusses the current ambush

  • Fitz and Simmons hide with various S.H.I.E.L.D. agents, and Simmons says that Trevor Khan should be a team ready to fight. Fitz tries to contact Enoch, but gets sent to voicemail, causing them to realize that he must be dead. They discern that the Chronicoms are on Earth to exterminate humanity.[14][22]
  • Izel expresses her pleasure that Pachakutiq has awoken within Sarge, and the pair discuss their anticipation for creating a new home.[14][22]
  • May lies in the Fear Dimension, bleeding out. The First, The Second, and The Third of Izel's species prepare to perform the necessary ritual to come to Earth and inhabit bodies.[14][22]
  • Shaw continues to follow Mackenzie's instructions, trying to fix his Quinjet, but finds that the problem is a piece of the plane that a Shrike host has stolen. Mackenzie instructs Shaw to reroute power directly to the main engine.[14][22]
  • Rodriguez informs Mackenzie and Johnson that the Shrike hosts attacking the Zephyr have cut the hydraulic line to the door that had been blocking them. Johnson and Rodriguez barricade the door while hosts break the glass, and Mackenzie continues to instruct Shaw.[14][22]

Diaz protecting agents during the ambush

  • Ambush at the Lighthouse: Fitz and Simmons wander the Lighthouse and find that Khan's entire team, including Khan, are dead. They realize that the Chronicoms have access, through the Cerebral Fusion Machine, to everything they knew at the time of being plugged in, including S.H.I.E.L.D.'s emergency protocols. The pair come across Agent Diaz, and Simmons says that they could hide in Shaw's company's lab, since they did not know about it until after they left the machine. Simmons orders Diaz to bring every to the lab without them, planning to destroy the remainder of the Framework to prevent the Chronicoms getting access to the other agents' minds.[14][22]
  • Izel sees the anger in Pachakutiq, and says that she appreciates the strength behind his body, but Pachakutiq sees the body as a prison, noting that since Izel abandoned him instead of finding the Di'Allas to make him whole, it is his fault he ended up trapped in Sarge. He goes to kill her, but stops and resolves to bring the rest of their homeworld to Earth.[14][22]
  • Shaw fixes the Quinjet and starts to fly to the Zephyr.[14][22]
  • Rodriguez and Johnson struggle to hold the Shrike hosts back. The hosts break into the armory and attack, but Rodriguez uses her powers to slow time around her and shoot the hosts, killing them. However, a Shrike then flies onto the plane and down her throat, infecting Rodriguez.[14][22]

Shaw crash landing the Quinjet

  • Mackenzie tells Shaw to concentrate on flying, and Johnson and Rodriguez arrive and tell him about the Shrike that infected Rodriguez. As Mackenzie comforts Rodriguez, Shaw crash-lands the Quinjet onto the Zephyr.[14][22]
  • Fitz and Simmons enter the storage room where they keep the remainder of the Framework and prepare to blow it up. Simmons sees Chronicom Hunters moving the Theta Brain-Wave Frequency Machine and realizes they are gathering mind tech, so they need to destroy the Framework quickly.[14][22]
  • The First, The Second, and The Third begin their ceremony, starting to place their respective fragments of the Di'Allas into slots in a stone. May wakes up and removes Sarge's sword from her chest, watching the ceremony being conducted. Through a gap in a wall, she sees the other beings of Izel's species start to walk toward the portal.[14][22]
  • The Third prepares to put her stone in her slot, but May uses the sword to kill all three. She throws the stones through the portal, and Izel sees them come through in the temple.[14][22]

Jemma Simmons and Leo Fitz are saved by Enoch

  • Fitz and Simmons prepare to blow up the Framework, realizing that the only way to do it is for them to die as well, trapped with no timer. Hunters enter the room and point their guns at Fitz and Simmons, who prepare to blow up the room, but Enoch kills them and explains to Fitz and Simmons that he is wearing Isaiah's skin. He says that he has a plan that will change the course of Fitz and Simmons' lives for ever.[14][22][23]
  • Deke Shaw flies Mackenzie, Rodriguez, and Johnson toward the temple, and Rodriguez asks Johnson to kill her if she turns into a host. Johnson agrees to, and says that her motivation for beating Sarge will be revenge.[14][22]
  • Izel angrily accuses Pachakutiq of being responsible for the deaths of the Three, and draws her blade, preparing to enter the Fear Dimension and handle Melinda May herself. She passes through the portal and finds May, saying that life and death being meaningless in her realm is the reason she has survived. May engages Izel in a duel using Sarge's sword.[14][22]
  • Enoch, who has removed Isaiah's skin suit, uses an Inter-Planetary Conveyance Disc to transport Fitz and Simmons with him onto the Quinjet, which Piper is using to fly Flint back to the Lighthouse. Fitz has Enoch put on his normal face, and Simmons tells Piper they have to fly back to the jungle. Enoch tells them that the reason he could predict where the jet would be was a copy of the Time Stream device that he has stolen.[14][23]

Quake uses her powers to try and kill Sarge

  • Battle at the Temple of the Forgotten:
    • Mackenzie, Rodriguez, Shaw, and Johnson walk through the Temple of the Forgotten. Shaw stays behind to kill the oncoming hosts while the other three continue to look for Sarge.[14][22]
    • Arriving at the portal, Johnson uses her powers to quake Pachakutiq. Sarge's body is torn away to reveal Pachakutiq's true form, but Pachakutiq is unaffected by her quakes. Pachakutiq and Mackenzie fight and Johnson goes to help Rodriguez, who is starting to turn from her infection.[14][22]
    • May and Izel continue to fight. Izel knocks May down and places the Three's stones into their slots. May gets back up and kicks Izel to the ground.[14][22]
    • In the Quantum Realm, nearing arrival from the alternate 1983, Nathaniel Malick complains to Sibyl that she did not give him control of her Chronicom Hunters, angry at being pulled out of reality just before he could win. She tells him they are almost certainly travelling to the original timeline, already under attack by the Chronicoms, so Earth is still in their grasp. Malick leaves, and has the unconscious Kora taken to have her power stolen.[14][23]
    • Mackenzie explains plan to Rodriguez and Sousa

      As the older team get back to 2019 of their timeline, "Phil Coulson" reminds Yo-Yo Rodriguez and Daniel Sousa to join Leo Fitz and Jemma Simmons, while the rest of the team deal with the Lighthouse. Mackenzie takes Rodriguez and Sousa to don hazmat suits with Fitz and Simmons, explaining they are arriving just before when they left, so there is unfinished business at the temple. Rodriguez realizes what this means.[14][23]
    • The team arrive out of the Quantum Realm, back in 2019 of their timeline, and out in space.[14][23]
    • Meanwhile, in Izel's realm, Izel gets up from May's kick and flees back to Earth as the other beings arrive to attack May.[14][22]
    • The older team's Quinjet flies away from Zephyr One with the hazmat group aboard, while Zephyr One cloaks and shuts down to avoid being noticed.[14][23]
    • Sibyl impatiently orders for Zephyr One to be found and destroyed.[14][23]
    • In the temple, Deke Shaw radios the team to say he cannot hold off the hosts forever.[14][22]
    • Piper, Flint, Enoch, and the 31-year-old Fitz and Simmons land the earlier Quinjet back outside the temple, and Flint puts together a piece of the White Monolith for Enoch, Fitz, and Simmons. Enoch tells him and Piper to wait there for a moment, and the trio sprint to the Zephyr One the team in the temple have left outside, to steal the plane.[14][23]
    • In the temple, the younger Rodriguez begs Johnson to kill her, but she refuses. Pachakutiq knocks Mackenzie down.[14][22]
    • On Zephyr One, Enoch instructs 31-year-old Fitz and Simmons to pick a star system to jump away to, and Simmons chooses her favorite, Theta Serpentis. They make the jump.[14][23]
    • Zephyr One arrives back through time from 2023, with the older Enoch and 35-year-old Fitz and Simmons aboard, having spent 4 years together in Alya and then looped back with time travel.[14][23]
    • Meanwhile, the 31-year-old Fitz and Simmons arrive safely in Alya, hopeful that a future version of themselves is simultaneously back at the temple, if their time travel plans go correctly.[14][23]
    • In the temple, the younger Mackenzie crawls over to Rodriguez. Johnson gives him the Shrike Dagger and approaches Pachakutiq herself. Rodriguez is taken over by her Shrike and attacks Mackenzie.[14][22]
    • The Fitz and Simmons who have just arrived from 2023 are met by Piper and Flint, and unload the new Containment Module, as Piper realizes they have messed with time again to be back so quickly.[14][23]
    • Inside, as Johnson and Pachakutiq talk, Izel steps through the portal and prepares to kill Johnson.[14][22]
    • The 35-year-old Simmons who has just come from 2023 tells Piper and Flint that Fitz has to wait in the module to be transported through the Quantum Realm to an alternate timeline, and begs them to keep the module safe as if there is nothing more important, promising to do anything Piper wants in return.[14][23]
    • In the temple, before Izel can kill Johnson, May comes through behind her, running Izel through with Sarge's sword and killing her.[14][22]
    • Sousa, the older Rodriguez, and the older 35-year-old Fitz and Simmons who have arrived from the Quantum Realm touch down in the Quinjet near the temple.[14][23]
    • Inside, Izel's death also kills the Shrike within the younger Rodriguez, and May throws Mackenzie the sword.[14][22]
    • The younger 35-year-old Fitz who has just arrived from 2023 completes the Quantum Tunnel piece on their universe's side, and Simmons prepares to have to forget. Fitz gets into the module, being the one who has to stay to establish the link between timelines, since his brain injury means he cannot handle the implant.[14][23]
    • Quake is finally able to bring an end to Sarge

      In the temple, seeing their opportunity, Johnson quakes Pachakutiq to weaken him. Mackenzie swings the sword and kills him.[14][22]
    • The older, hazmat-wearing agents leave their Quinjet to find Enoch and the younger 35-year-old Simmons.[14][23]
    • Inside, the younger Rodriguez assures Mackenzie she is now okay.[14][22]
    • On the Zephyr One arrived from 2023, Enoch activates the younger 35-year-old Simmons' D.I.A.N.A. implant to suppress her memories. He checks with her that she cannot remember his location, and she cannot.[14][23]
    • The hazmat suit group find the younger 35-year-old Simmons, whose implant has just been activated. With the suits on, their faces cannot be seen, so the younger Simmons does not know the truth of who she is speaking to, as Enoch notes them to be reinforcements. Younger Simmons thanks them for coming and gives them instructions.[14][23]
    • Having left the Fear Dimension, the younger May starts to succumb to her wounds and die inside the temple.[14][22]
    • The agents in the temple are surprised when a S.H.I.E.L.D. team suddenly arrives, led by Jemma Simmons, who says they can heal May soon. Her team of four agents in hazmat suits cuts a sample from the White Monolith and brings it with them.[22] Unknown to the agents who just defeated Izel and Pachakutiq, or to the Simmons they are talking to, the four people in the hazmat suits are older versions of Rodriguez, Simmons, and Fitz, along with Daniel Sousa.[14][23]
    • Simmons, May, Johnson, Shaw, Mackenzie, and Rodriguez get on-board Zephyr One, where Simmons says they have had help and time to upgrade the plane.[22] Rodriguez is handed breathing apparatus, not knowing the person handing it to her is her future self.[23] They cryo-freeze May and Simmons says she does not know where Fitz is, and cannot know.[22] Unknown to her, the person in a hazmat suit standing right in front of her is the husband she misses, who has been reunited with her several days older self, also present in a suit. The older trio of agents depart Zephyr One with Sousa, having helped their younger selves onto the journey that will eventually take them back to this point.[14][23]
    • The younger 35-year-old Simmons explains to the team she has just taken from the temple that the Chronicoms have been attacking S.H.I.E.L.D. because they see them as the only threat able to stop them from establishing Earth as Chronyca-3. She launches the plane to take off.[14][22][23]
    • Meanwhile, the older Zephyr One team who have just returned from the Quantum Realm continues to cloak out in space, knowing from having experienced it themselves that the Zephyr One by the temple about to embark for 1931 will be spotted by the Chronicom fleet momentarily.[14][23]
    • When Sibyl's fleet spot the Zephyr One at the temple and mistake it for the plane they are after, they fire missiles down on it.[14][23]
    • The younger 35-year-old Simmons explains to the younger team that the Chronicom Hunters are after S.H.I.E.L.D..[14][22]
    • The older team from the Quantum Realm seize their opportunity with the fleet distracted and fly Zephyr One in toward the lead ship.[14][23]
    • The missiles aimed at the temple Zephyr One near their target.[14][22]
    • The younger 35-year-old Simmons radios Fitz to say they are ready for launch, not knowing due to her implant that he is answering from mere meters away in the Containment Module.[23] She tells the others to prepare for a jump.[14][22]
    • Out in space, May continues to fly the later Zephyr One to the Chronicom ship.[14][23]
    • On the earlier Zephyr One at the temple, Simmons explains to the others that the Lighthouse was not the only point of interest targeted, as they prepare to make a jump.[14][22][23]
    • The temple is destroyed by Ionizer Missiles

      The temple Zephyr makes its jump, which Simmons does not tell the others is in fact a time jump to 1931. The Chronicom missiles pass through where the Zephyr had been and blow up the Temple of the Forgotten.[14][22][23]
  • The older Quinjet hazmat team witness the temple being blown up. Elsewhere, Piper and Flint see it and prepare to protect the Containment Module if necessary. Inside the module, the younger 35-year-old Fitz shrinks down subatomic and enters the Quantum Realm as planned, the Quantum Tunnel activated from the other side, in the alternate timeline, where he is headed.[14][23]
  • In space, the older May lands Zephyr One on top of the Chronicom ship. Mackenzie radios the Quinjet team to head back to the Lighthouse.[14][23]
  • Sibyl is informed that it appears Zephyr One has been destroyed, but she is skeptical, noting the agents always beat the odds.[14][23]
  • Destruction of the Chronicom Fleet:
    • The older agents blow a hole in the ship ceiling and descend in. Daisy Johnson reminds the team that the domes inside the ship are radioactive, so to be careful. They are met by hunters, who Johnson immediately engages, managing to fight three at once and assuring the team they can go, because she has it handled.[14][23]
    • Mackenzie and "Coulson" split up. Mackenzie shoots a Chronicom with his Shotgun-Axe, while "Coulson" breaks a Chronicom's neck, only to be stopped by Sibyl, who grabs him by the throat and says he will be reassigned.[14][23]
    • Johnson finishes taking down the hunters, but Nathaniel Malick enters, saying he is honored to be her final enemy as his eyes glow with power stolen from Kora.[14][23]
    • In the Lighthouse, the older Rodriguez speeds through the corridors, clearing their way of Chronicoms by punching them down and stealing their guns, as the Quinjet team rush to control. Sousa is impressed to see her ability at last.[14][23]
    • Back in the control room, the older 35-year-old Fitz gets to work on wiping the Chronicom takeover from the system. Back in the familiar location, the older 35-year-old Simmons suddenly starts to remember the rest of what happened, and tells Fitz she thinks she remembers what they are fighting for.[14][23]
    • Malick aims a quake at Johnson, but she dodges and quakes him back. He gets up and taunts her about having killed Jiaying. They both quake at each other simultaneously, their forces clashing in the middle, until Johnson pushes their forces aside and kicks him. He gets back up and they end up in a fist fight, until Malick headbutts her and punches her in the gut with a quake.[14][23]
    • Alphonso Mackenzie reaches the unconscious Kora, freeing her from the transfusion machine.[14][23]
    • Sibyl tells "Phil Coulson" that she will strip away all but his Chronicom hardware so she can control him like the Chronicom Hunters. "Coulson" states, however, that they have won, with Leo Fitz and Jemma Simmons retaking the Lighthouse. Sibyl inputs her authorization to order the hunters to head to the Lighthouse and prepare to fire on the S.H.I.E.L.D. bases previously targeted, but "Coulson" notes that entering her authorization has given them exactly what they needed, as Melinda May drops through the ceiling, announcing her arrival as "the Cavalry", embracing that nickname. May and "Coulson" attack the Chronicoms present.[14][23]
    • Meanwhile, Daisy Johnson and Nathaniel Malick continue to fight. Johnson bashes his head into a wall, but he retaliates, quake punching her again.[14][23]
    • May and "Coulson" take down the Chronicoms. Mackenzie arrives with Kora, who is waking, and they are unsure whether she is strong enough to boost the transmission signal they need. "Coulson" asks her to fight for the very thing that gives them strength, and she says that she understands and can do it.[14][23]
    • The second wave of Chronicom Hunters at the Lighthouse close in on control as Fitz prepares to receive the planned transmission.[14][23]
    • Kora checks that "Coulson" knows how to give the Chronicoms orders, but "Coulson" explains they are not giving orders, but empathy. May inserts her arms into Sibyl's control unit, and Kora uses her energy to connect with the ship and boost and direct the signal for them, relaying a beam of transmission down to the Lighthouse, where the Chronicoms breaking into control are stripped of their hunter programming and returned to an empathetic disposition.[14][23]
    • Aboard the ship, Johnson uses her quakes to fly over a dome and continue to attack Malick.[14][23]
    • Mackenzie catches Kora as she falls, exhausted from her effort.[14][23]
    • Yo-Yo Rodriguez asks the Chronicoms if they are friends or enemies of theirs. The Chronicoms drop their weapons and state that they are friends, as they have always been.[14][23]
    • As "Coulson" and Mackenzie go to leave the ship, they see Johnson fighting Malick. Mackenzie reminds "Coulson" that they have to let her do what she needs to, no matter the cost.[14][23]
    • Quake obliderates the Chronicom Fleet

      Johnson tells Malick they have bought enough time and won, with the Chronicom data purged from Earth. He angrily attacks her again, quaking her to a dome and saying she cannot stop the ships from still firing on the bases without killing herself, but Johnson admits that is the plan, pushing him away with a quake blast from within. The domes erupt, engulfing the ship in an explosion which kills Malick and takes out the entire fleet.[14][23]
  • As Johnson floats through space, the team pick her up in Zephyr One. Kora uses her energy to revive her half-sister. Mackenzie thanks her, and "Coulson" notes that this is what they were fighting for, as Johnson affirms she understands: family.[14][23]
  • 35-year-old Leo Fitz and Jemma Simmons return to the Temple of the Forgotten and get back to Piper and Flint. Piper is confused since last she knew Leo was in the Containment Module, and wonders if they were protecting it for nothing, but Leo tells her that she was protecting their everything. The couple walk around to the back of the module, where they open it up to be reunited with Alya, who has been resting in the prepared bedding at the back of the module ever since they left it. Simmons cries at being reunited with her daughter, who is elated to see her mother, and notes that her mother told her they would be apart a long time, but it was not long. Simmons tells her it felt like forever. Alya says there was a loud noise, but that she was only a little scared, and Simmons says she was too, holding her daughter tightly.[14][23]

  • In Theta Serpentis, Enoch studies Jemma Simmons' brain patterns as they simulate the implant of D.I.A.N.A., a memory-suppressing device. Simmons notes the simulation results are improving as they get closer to a working design. Leo Fitz arrives and admits his time machine design work is not making progress. Enoch notes that it does not matter how long it takes, given the nature of making a time machine. Fitz asks him to leave so he can have a moment alone with Simmons.[26][27][23]
  • Simmons excitedly says they will be ready to rush back to the Temple of the Forgotten before they know it, but Fitz suggests that because it does not matter how long they take, they could take some time to live their lives together first, in a period without a mission. Simmons asks if it is about the blood work, and Fitz says it both is and is not, and that they deserve it regardless.[26][27][23]

References

  1. 1.0 1.1 1.2 In Inescapable, a Zephyr One team incident on Saldon is referenced. In Collision Course Part Two, an incident with an ocean of lava is referenced. In Leap, an incident on Krylor is referenced. In The Sign, incidents on a smelly planet and on a shiny planet are referenced. All of these occurred during Zephyr One's time hunting for Fitz, before the interrogation of Trok, so between July 2, 2018 (see 2018 references) and June 25, 2019 (see other references). They would all, therefore, be approximated to around December 29, 2018. Pushing the events apart, separating them by a week and using the order of mention as a guess, we would have Saldon around December 15, 2018, lava around December 22, 2018, Krylor around December 29, 2018, the smelly planet around January 5, 2019, and the shiny planet around January 12, 2019.
    However, their incident on Trinawa is dated to December 29, 2018, so Krylor, the smelly planet, and the shiny planet may be pushed a further week, with January 5, 2019 for Krylor, January 12, 2019 for the smelly planet, and January 19, 2019 for the shiny planet.

  4. In Missing Pieces, on July 2, 2019 (see other references), Mackenzie says, "May was my right hand these last few months." This would most likely refer to some point between November 2018 and April 2019. A calculation would suggest approximately February 4, 2019 as when May began helping him.
  5. In Fear and Loathing on the Planet of Kitson, it is said that Enoch and Fitz encountered "the MazTats", and in Window of Opportunity, it is mentioned that they were found on Sivos. The MazTats incident must come first, with the Sivos incident leading to them being on the Lazy Comet. These two events would have occurred after their cabin pressure failure on June 1, 2018 (see other references) and when Fit is shown on the Lazy Comet by June 26, 2019 (see other references). Distributing the events evenly, the MazTats would be around October 9, 2018 and Sivos around February 17, 2019.

  7. In Missing Pieces, it is said that the Zephyr One team found half of the ship, then traveled to locations including Trinawa and the moons of Pyree, seemingly in that order. These three events would have occurred after their departure from Earth on July 2, 2018 (see other references) and before this is said on June 25, 2019 (see other references). Distributing the events evenly, finding the ship would be around September 30, 2018, Trinawa December 29, 2018, and the moons of Pyree around March 29, 2019.

  9. During filming for Avengers: Endgame, Lexi Rabe was 5 years old, suggesting Morgan Stark is close to 5. While it is possible that Pepper Potts is unknowingly pregnant during Avengers: Infinity War, it is unlikely, given she specifically rejects that notion to Tony, and that it has been a few more weeks when she is reunited with him in Avengers: Endgame and there is no mention of having found out since. So, the earliest Morgan could have been conceived is likely late June or, more likely, July 2018. Therefore, Morgan was likely born at the earliest realistically in April 2019. With this making her 4 years old during Avengers: Endgame, to be as close as realistically possible to Rabe's age, it may be assumed that she was born at this earliest realitistic time, so approximately April 2020. This matches the Avengers: Endgame script, which describes her as "4".

In Missing Pieces, Alphonso Mackenzie says to Melinda May, "I don't have to remind you what the date is tomorrow [...] hard to believe it's been a year. I'm glad you got a little time together." May replies "We got more than we thought we would." It is the 1-year anniversary of Phil Coulson's death tomorrow (the day of the later events of Missing Pieces and the events of Window of Opportunity and Fear and Loathing on the Planet of Kitson). Furthermore, in Leap, Agent Davis refers to the events of Fear and Looting on the Planet of Kitson as the "space puff incident of 2019."
    In The End, Daisy Johnson asks Coulson on May 31, 2018, "How long did Simmons say you have?" Coulson replies, "Days. Weeks, if I'm lucky." With May saying in Missing Pieces, "We got more [time] than we thought we would," Coulson likely got "weeks", the "lucky" period of time, before he died. Coulson therefore died around June 26, 2018, making this now June 2019. This matches with the fact that Fitz is said in Fear and Loathing on the Planet of Kitson to have died "over a year ago", when Fitz died the same day Johnson and Coulson had that conversation.
    This is further supported in The New Deal, when Jemma Simmons and the Phil Coulson Chronicom LMD refer to the time between leaving the Framework on May 11, 2017 (see 2017 references) and his activation as "2 years".
    Finally, in What We're Fighting For, an epilogue is shown "one year later" after the end of Season 6, strongly implied to be specifically the 1-year anniversary. The Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Instagram confirmed this is set in 2020, again making Season 6 2019. So, Season 6 can be dated to June 25-July 4, 2019, and the What We're Fighting For epilogue July 4, 2020.
    While producers have claimed that this season is set prior to Thanos' Snap in Avengers: Infinity War, this is impossible. Not only does the timeline evidence (see 2018 references) make both the later part of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Season 5 and Avengers: Infinity War immovably the first half of 2018 (and therefore, with this now being over a year later, a long time after Avengers: Infinity War), but Option Two, The One Who Will Save Us All, The Force of Gravity, and The End are explicitly set simultaneously to the events of Avengers: Infinity War, finishing within hours if not minutes before Thanos' snap. Therefore with this being over a year after The End, this is also over a year after Avengers: Infinity War, and there is no other possibility.

  24. In Spider-Man: Far From Home, the film Hunting Hydra is shown to exist by June 27, 2024 (see 2024 references). This would be made after the events of January 12, 2014 (see 2014 references). It would take at least half a year to have been released, meaning it was released between July 14, 2014 and June 27, 2024. So, its release may be approximated to the midpoint of July 6, 2019. With most films releasing on a Friday, it may be approximated to the nearest Friday: July 5, 2019.

  26. 26.0 26.1 26.2 26.3 26.4 26.5 26.6 26.7 In What We're Fighting For, flashbacks are shown of Leo Fitz and Jemma Simmons' life following their move to Theta Serpentis on July 4, 2019 (see other references). They spent 4 years together, suggesting they jumped back in time around July 2023. It can be taken as a specific 4 years, so roughly July 4, 2023, or a more general "2023 - 2019 = 4", so any time in 2023 (approximating with mid-year). Putting more weight on the more specific, it can be approximated to July 3, 2023. This is suitable, given Leo and Simmons have been celebrating Alya's birthday, and if they have traveled a near exact number of years, this means Alya's birthday aligns closely with the date on which she becomes a year older, simplifying her birthday.
    Harlow Happy Hexum was 4 years and 10 months old during filming, suggesting Alya is around 4 in the 2023 and returned-to-2019 scenes, and 5 in the following 2020 epilogue scene. However, Alya was conceived no earlier than July 2019, meaning she was born no earlier than early 2020, thus maximum 3. So, for her to be as close as realistically possible to 4, she should indeed be born in early/mid-2020. On average, a pregnant woman finds out they are pregnant about 245 days days before birth. In Brand New Day, a flashback is shown to just after Simmons has found out she is pregnant, and is implied to have been a while after they began their work. Assuming it is at least 3 months, but taking it as no more than 3 months due to wanting to maximize Alya's age, that scene may be approximated to October 4, 2019, and thus Simmons finding out her pregnancy around October 1, 2019, finally therefore meaning Alya was born around early June 2020 (roughly June 2nd). This is suitable, as in What We're Fighting For it is seemingly implied in July that her birthday has been in recent month.
    It can be assumed that Fitz starting to study the Time Stream is July 5, 2019, and then the scenes of the montage shown between then and the scene approximated to October 4, 2019 can be evenly distributed to July 23rd, August 10th, August 29th, and September 16th. At some point between July 5, 2019 and July 3, 2023 during the studying of the Time Stream, Fitz finds out about Kora's importance and the team being together for the final time in the speakeasy. This may be approximated to the midpoint, July 2021.
    Simmons appears to be about a month from birth when Leo makes her the tea, so roughly May 2, 2020. Alya appears to be about 4 months old as the family watch a film, suggesting it is around October 2-November 1, 2020, so October 17, 2020. She is about the same age when they look at the stars together as when they time travel back to 2019, so this can be taken to be shortly before in 2023 - around a week prior, so June 26, 2023.

  28. In Spider-Man: Far From Home, the film Nova: Einstein Rosen Bridges with Dr. Erik Selvig is shown to exist by June 27, 2024 (see 2024 references). This would be likely have been made after Selvig is last seen in Avengers: Age of Ultron on May 4, 2015 (see 2015 references). So, its release may be approximated to the midpoint of November 30, 2019. With most films releasing on a Friday, it may be approximated to the nearest Friday: November 29, 2019.
