“Not agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., just agents of… nothing”

With last week’s episode showing that Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. can hold the weight of being the MCU tie-in that we all wanted it to be, this episode asked the question of “Can they keep it up?”  While the answer to that may have been obvious to most viewers, we’ve definitely got an idea of what we can expect from here on out.
