This season of AOS has been kinetic to say the least. Always moving always giving us something to thinks about and ponder about. While not much has been revealed about the reason the team is in the broken future we do know that this episode is a prelude to next weeks big reveal to some answers... hopefully. Episode 7 continues where 6 left off and that is Daisy, Fitz and Simmons' escape. The show has really taken its time with these characters, particularly the Fitz/Simmons relationship which from the 'Pilot' episode of the series could be seen millions of miles away. Always being torn apart but it just always feels so good when the come back together. Daisy has really taken a backseat in this season as far as screen time. Her significance to the past and future is talked about in great length throughout the season but Daisy herself hasn't been featured as prominently as say a Fitz or even Kasius. Lets talk about Kasius, his story in this episode took center stage with the rising tension between himself and his brother. The pros definitely out weigh the cons as we wish more story for the other members of the team. Flint, a character we just met had a much bigger role in this episode as he finally takes his inhuman gifts to action. May and Enoch on the surface was a fun sequence of events that set up next weeks episode but left you wanting more from that subplot. 

Overall this episode delivers on fun action, well acted character moments and more questions. Dominic Rains as Kasius was the MVP of this episode while we wish a little more Coulson wouldn't hurt.
