‘Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ “World’s End” Easter Eggs And Other References

Ghost Rider Returns!

Agents of shield ghost rider

The first third of this season introduced Robbie Reyes AKA the Ghost Rider to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While many thought that Johnny Blaze (the most popular incarnation of the Spirit of Vengeance) was going to the Ghost Rider on the show. Instead, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. opted to bring the newest version of the character. Earlier on, he disappeared fighting his Darkhold-powered uncle Eli Morrow in another dimension. He returned last week after being gone for a little while to enact some vengeance on Aida as he’s the one person who strikes fear in her heart. Tonight’s episode made good use of him, but he, unfortunately, went away after helping save the day. There’s hope that he will still get his own spinoff show, but it was still good for him o return.

    The device the agents used on coulson and the others is similar to the sound paralysis used by obadiah in the first iron man movie

    I was hoping that when Robbie Reyes started talking about having been to “HeII”, he might have dropped a few hints about ‘Hel’, from the future Thor: Ragnarok movie…Maybe he did, but until the movie, we don’t know…

      Probably far fetched, but….is the Darkhold how Hela acquires an Infinity Stone and destroys Asgard???

        I don’t think Feige would give that much importance to an element from the TV shows…Would be a nice nod, though.

    I’m not so sure that was Prison 42. I’m thinking it’s more along the lines of introducing the agency S.W.O.R.D. into the MCU. For those unfamiliar with the Comics, essentially, they’re S.H.I.E.L.D. in outer space (in fact, in some iterations of the Comics, SWORD is a direct subsidiary of SHIELD). SWORD tends to deal primarily with extraterrestrial threats to Earth, like say….Thanos? The Kree and/or Inhumans? Howard the Duck? Okay, maybe not that last one.
