We chat about Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD episode 7, “The Writing on the Wall,” as Coulson finally gets an answer to the symbols. Join us as we chat about blue aliens, Inhumans, Attilan and Ward’s present.

The symbols are beginning to take over Director Coulson’s life, with plenty of scene chewing scenes for Clark Gregg,  and he needs answers. When they find that someone has been hunting people who knew about the symbols he jumps into the torture machine to get his memories back. In the process, we find out exactly how the Tahiti project worked and it’s connection to both the blue, Kree-like alien and the symbols he and others have been obsessively carving. But the symbols and memories are driving Coulson over the edge and Skye, Chloe Bennet, has to take control while the rest are hunting Brett Dalton’s Grant Ward.

By the end we have turned a page on Agents of SHIELD and with Coulson’s memory and the Tahiti project behind us the Director can now take control and move towards their new objective, an ancient city that might just tie into the greater Marvel cinematic universe.

All the background of last year, alongside this seasons great character arcs brought us to a terrific, satisfying conclusion to some stories while opening up new and exciting places for the entire crew in “The Writing on the Wall.” We can’t wait to see where they go next.

Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD airs Tuesday nights at 9 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
