Trivia

The sleeping gas that Daisy is considering using on the base appears to be Methoxypropane, which used to be used as an inhaled general anesthetic. Though it is strange that S.H.I.E.L.D. would be using that, they have access to technology and medications not available anywhere else in the world. Methoxypropane hasn't been used in several decades since the discovery of safer and more effective inhaled anesthetics such as Desflurane, isoflurane and sevoflurane. However those are usually just used for medical procedures, the chemical of choice for most governments and law enforcement agencies for rendering large groups of people unconscious is fentanyl gas.

Goofs

When Daisy first encounters Jemma, she has on a black top with shoulder straps. Once she is dressed, her off-the-shoulder shirt shows she has no black shoulder straps. See more »

Best episode of the series so far
23 February 2017 | by ChrisInMiamiSee all my reviews

This is where the show proves it doesn't need the rest of the Marvel Universe to stand on. Now I want these characters to have roles in the movies, not the other way around. BRAVO to whoever came up with the season 4 storyline involving Ghostrider and the LMDs. I wrote a review on the main AoS page where I compared it to Star Trek Next Generation. Around Season 3 they proved they could stand apart from the original series. This is the episode that definitively proves AoS is its own man.
