Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has spent three and a half seasons building its own complex corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe since it first began life as a spinoff of The Avengers.
As of the episode’s end, almost every main character is inside the virtual world known as the Framework, where they’re living out slightly altered versions of there lives.
Of course, with Hydra in full power, things are more than slightly different.
Since that time, the show has continued telling the story of Agent Coulson, introduced exciting new characters to Marvel lore, like Agent Melinda May, and brought characters like Quake, Mockingbird, Deathlok, and Ghost Rider to life.
