SPOILER WARNING: This article contains major spoilers for "All the Comforts of Home," the latest episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
The Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. weren't the only ones time travel back to the past. As it turned out in "All the Comforts of Home," the latest episode, Deke went along for the ride.
Deke materialized in a different spot than Director Phil Coulson and his team. He appeared in the middle of a small park, but -- as soon as he saw his surroundings -- he knew exactly where he was: in the past. Realizing this, he went to explore a world unbroken and quickly ended up in a bar much like the one he imagined for the Framework.
As a man from the year 2091, Deke wasn't quite aware of how the currency worked. So, after devouring a hamburger and drinking several bottles of Zima, he tried to make a break for it to avoid paying. Unfortunately for him, he was too drunk to make it very far. This escapade landed him in the local prison, which led to Daisy's discovery of him.
Worried that Deke would reveal his association with her, Daisy set out to rescue him. She walked in just as he insisted to a cop that he knows people in the government. "I'm here for Deke Shaw," she explained to the officer, introducing herself as Sinara Smith. "I'm his state-assigned social worker."
Posing as his social worker, she got him out of his cell and pulled him over to a corner so they could speak privately. "I was with the monolith, and there was a shard, and I turned the machine on, and then the rock turned to liquid and then I was like buzzing, dizzy, and pushing and pulling but then bang! Zima!" he explained, clearly still inebriated. He then went on to share his excitement about being in the past.
Daisy ultimately brought him back to the Lighthouse with her, where he reunited with the other S.H.I.E.L.D. agents. As such, it appears as though he will be a part of their adventures moving forward.
