This Week's Ghosts...
- In the Director's office, you can spy the axe Mack used to cut off Coulson's Diviner-infected hand. Ah, memories.
- Price's aliases include Margaret Campbell, Samantha Potter, Jane Thompson and Sarah Russell. Coulson also calls her "Roz." These could be winks to comic characters like Flash Thompson (who inherits Spider-Man's space symbiote suit to become Venom) and Rosalind "Roz" Solomon (a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent).
- Price works for a covert faction of DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) and formerly worked for NASA, the CIA and MI6. Could A.T.C.U. be building towards H.A.M.M.E.R. or, perhaps, S.W.O.R.D.?
- If S.W.O.R.D. becomes realized on the show, could Price's real name turn out to be something like Abigail Brand? That one's iffy, as Brand is a mutant in the comics, but film rights are a funny thing.
- "Meltdown" sounds like a pretty apt name for Joey.
- Where, oh where, could Simmons be? I'd put my money on Hala, the Kree home world.
- The fake news station WHIH featured heavily in this episode. You may recall it appearing in a series of viral videos from this summer leading up to "Ant-Man."
