Whoa, lots of developments. I had been wondering if Aida would be able to incorporate Inhuman DNA into her new body (which was presumably built on the foundation of Agnes's chromosomal structure), and I guess that little teleporting trick answers that question. It makes sense. Otherwise she would go from being a super-powered android to a helpless human with no resources.  So the Framework escapade is ended, but the Aida story goes on-- and she's not done with poor Fitz. But I wonder if her conscience will get the best of her now that she's human.

I had half expected that they would decide to print out a hard copy of Mack's kid, but I never expected Mack to elect to remain behind. Not a wise decision, and made without access to his real-world memories. Even if SHIELD decides to maintain perpetual care of his body, it would still wither away and get bed sores and stuff until it finally dies-- which would not affect his life in the Framework, but it's still pretty macabre and I don't know if Coulson will go for it.  

I also wondered if the super 3D-printer could be used to restore Agnes, Mace, and Radcliffe somehow-- is the Framework perhaps programmed with an afterlife where their consciousness persists?  The process seems pretty complicated, though, so I wonder how much work and research would have to go into creating an individual. Presumably, in order to bring Hope into the real world, they would have to dig up the dead baby and reconstruct a cell nucleus and mitochondria and so forth-- which is probably doable after ten years, but, again, kind of macabre. It wouldn't be so weird for the others, who are freshly dead. But some modifications would need to be made-- a cure for Agnes, for example. And Mace would probably want his super powers.  And Radcliffe looks like nine miles of bad road, so he'd probably want to do something about that.

And then there's Good Ward, who could be brought to life as redemption for the original. Oddly, he wasn't seen at all in this episode.  Was that for lack of time, or is it foreshadowing something?

I'm hoping that the Framework continues, since it does seem to be a complete world with conscious inhabitants. It's kind of cool that Virtual Trip will apparently become the new Patriot.  And things will probably go easier for SHIELD without Madame Hydra, Fitz and Fitz Senior around-- and I wonder if our SHIELD would have the option of tweaking the program to help them even more.

Aside from that, the episode also had tons of great character moments, from Daisy's farewells to Trip and Mack, to Mack's daughter guilting him into going with Daisy, to Fitz's reaction to coming out of the Framework, to Coulson and May becoming themselves again ("I was kind of squirrelly." "It was kind of cute.").  And, of course, Radcliffe's apparent betrayal revealed as a plan to save Fitz-- and his final words to Fitz, taking the blame for himself. I don't think Fitz will listen.

Wow.  OK, that really came down to the wire.

Interesting development with Mack, and it is hard to blame him for his decision.

And, Jemma, poor Jemma ... going off half-cocked never ends well, and now there's a rival for Fitz's affections in the real world ... not to forget that Fitz is definitely rattled by his actions in the Framework.

Radcliff remained duplicitous, but I'm glad he chose the selfless path.

And alas poor Trip, to discover the affection he was held by Daisy and Jemna, and then realize that it was purely platonic.  Still, I liked Daisy's parting speech to him.

Oh, and YAY for Phil and May, there's a couple who need each other.

As for next week :eek3:

That scene with Trip cracked me up.  "You? No?  Simmons? No? May? No?  Damn!"   :lol:
