A newly determined Talbot takes Coulson to meet the nemy and attempts to stave off the destruction of Earth.

And the sneak peek:

Will Talbot be Earth's savior, or its tyrant?

Can Coulson manage to redeem a Talbot drunk on power?

And what of Daisy and the rest ... can the team come back together in the face of impending doom?

For answers to these questions, and more, remember to tune in to ABC tonight,  True Believers, at 9pm Eastern/8pm Central, to find out.

Excelsior!!!

^ Those YouTube links are easy to fix. :)  Just remove the "m" and "." that are before "youtube", and they will embed like normal.  :cool:

(I am guessing you posted from a mobile device.  But it is an easy fix.) :)

Thanks, SFG, I'm still getting used to my kindle.  It was only the past couple of weeks when I figured out how to copy and paste on it.

Nah, I've just done the exact same thing in the past.  ;)  I think Orpheus has mentioned that the board is set to automatically embed videos based on recognizing the domain name.  So there is probably a (short) list of safe, known video sites, but the board doesn't know any variations on those.  :)

Hmm, it doesn't look like it worked.  I just quoted your post to see what happened, and it looks like you only changed the display part of the clickable link:

[url="https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=HeYYKjKbSxw"]https://youtube.co...h?v=HeYYKjKbSxw[/url]

And the sneak peek:

[url="https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=brnsBjXLT1Y"]https://youtube.co...h?v=brnsBjXLT1Y[/url]

You need to change it to say only the text of the link, like this:

https://youtube.com/watch?v=HeYYKjKbSxw

And the sneak peek:

https://youtube.com/watch?v=brnsBjXLT1Y

Though, I'm not sure if it needs to be www.youtube instead of https://youtube .

Just make sure you click on "light-switch mode" to see the code. :)

SFG's trick works perfectly if you do it while writing the post, but sometimes due to cache issues (there are separate caches in IPB, on our server, at your ISP, in your browser, and at other points in the chain), it can occassionally be annoying to edit. You may fix it correctly (or not) but not see the update until the cache entry expires -- "things once seen, cannot be unseen" (for a while)

I'll look into the code. Alas, it was an ancient BBcode written in PHP, not our current BBcode system, so I'd have to edit it manually in Notepad to avoid the risk of impacting the other PHP tags. (Long story, short form: don't have a PHP IDE installed my current machines). Upside: I can probably make the same patch to all of the PHP media codes at the same time. In Ye Olden Days, the video sites themselves only recognized the www subdomain.com or "no subdomain". m.domain.com wasn't a thing yet, and those sites STILL reject any subdomain, except "", "www." or "m."

PHP BBcodes don't require YOU to add the BBcode. They recognize the video URLs of certain approved popular sites and auto-add the BBcodes for you. The newer, non-PHP BBcodes, like [ Hulu ], require you to type the BBcode or use the "Special BBcode" dropdown.

IIRC, I fixed the youtu.be non-bug (It's a non-bug because YouTube decided to get cutesy, and supplied youtu.be in the url. ".be" means a Belgian domain, just as the more familiar .uk TLD means "UK". There is no logical reason why youtu.be should automatically be equivalent to youtube.com (indeed it would open up a world of scams), but Youtube and a handful of other domains bought their TLD lookalikes to avoid scammers doing it. Then they muddied the waters by USING those TLD domains intead of just putting up a redirect.

Anyhoo, NOW Oracle-Yoyo's warning makes sense.  It was concise and complete, the problem was that Yoyo was trying to anticipate the crisis-point and only served to confuse matters AND contributed to undermining her own credibility.  

And, yeah, Super Talbot has gone a little funny in the head, albeit one can't help but think his grievance with/envy of SHIELD did have some legitimacy.

Meanwhile, it looks like Daisy has attracted boyfriend number 3(?) with Deke.  Obviously, she has a type.  Then also, it was her rushing to Coulson's rescue that would propel her to meet her destiny.  Oy.

Yeah, SHIELD has pretty much disintegrated at this point.  :(  Aside from the core family of Coulson, May, and Daisy, there's really not any cohesion left. Mack feels that YoYo has betrayed both him and the principles of SHIELD, and he feels the same about Fitz-- previously his two best friends on the team. Daisy and YoYo have come to blows. Simmons feels that they are crossing a line in their efforts to save Coulson (though whether that line is using alien technology, genetic engineering, or grave robbing, I'm not sure).  And the biggest external threat facing them now is Coulson's old friend, and sometimes SHIELD ally, Talbot, who is totally off his rocker and not making a good impression on the universe.

At least everybody seems to be mellowing toward Deke.

And they got very explicit with the ideology this week, with Talbot complaining about Democrats and Mack telling Fitz he should follow the good word.

The latest Avengers movie got a plug with the mention of Thanos invading Earth.  It seems to be really bad planning by Marvel to have two alien invasions going on at the same time-- kind of redundant story-wise.

I wouldn't consider those the same thing. Mack's faith is a sincere personal belief, not a political stance. And I doubt he would agree with any of the ways that Christian teachings have been corrupted and misrepresented by people who claim to practice "faith-based" politics.

I think they kind of addressed that by establishing that the Confederacy is a band of scavengers. It follows that they'd take advantage of wars, invasions, and such to come in and take what they want under cover of the larger conflict. What we're seeing in the show isn't an invasion, it's just one ship coming to claim the gravitonium it's been offered. And I think Qovas said they needed the gravitonium to defend against Thanos.

I seem to remember someone else ranting about Democrats and saying "I alone can fix it"... it was the 2016 Republican National Conference. If only I could remember who.

I doubt that's a coincidence

Probably not, but it's a shame they used Talbot to make the point. I have the sad feeling he won't survive the season.
