As a minimal, this episode completely reveals us why Robin Hinton repeatedly looks so scrambled. Its structure bounces from facet to facet between screen day on the traditional Zephyr, where Coulson and the others are seeking to decide on out a technique to save the world, and the previous, where a toddler-extinct Robin watches as folk transition from life on Earth to life on the Lighthouse, for reasons that don’t was sure unless the very quit. So let’s attempt to untangle this timey-wimey ball.
We originate with Robin as a toddler, on a unheard of-less-rusty Zephyr. Simmons and Could perhaps well are seeking to pilot the ship by a gravity storm, so this desires to be rapidly after Daisy quaked the world apart. Robin says they’ll live on the rupture, but notes that “there’s one thing else I need to be mindful.” She has the identical assert in the screen. As an historical lady, Robin is unheard of extra enigmatic than she became once as a young lady. One of the important surviving folk residing in the Zephyr with her, a particular person named Voss, says that she can’t separate previous, screen, and future. For instance, he’s about to head out to bid the rest of Could perhaps well’s chums on board, and he is aware of where they’ll be because of Robin told him — a decade ago, that’s. Coulson is for the time being in the midst of crashing the ship they stole from Kasius, but your total S.H.I.E.L.D. people live on the rupture, true as young Robin predicted years earlier.
Coulson is desperate to get any and all recordsdata that can perhaps perhaps serve his team return to their comprise time and prevent this apocalypse from going down, but Robin isn’t very drawing terminate. All she’ll dispute him is that he’s the one who can bid your total pieces collectively, and that “this is the day all of it ends.” Coulson and Could perhaps well enchantment to Enoch for serve communicating with Robin, but Enoch says she became once best ever chatty with her mother; he has often been in a hassle to get things out of her by staying at her facet for days, but time is now no longer a luxury they’ve anymore.
Within the intervening time, Fitz and Simmons obtain the machine primitive to instructed the white monolith and bring them all here. They’ve even stumbled on a fragment of the monolith, but it completely sounds as if that’s now no longer enough. If they would possibly perhaps perhaps obtain extra, perhaps they would possibly perhaps perhaps reconstruct the portal and return in time to cease this all from going down. However whereas they are attempting to decide on that out, Fitz and Simmons in the end obtain themselves with some by myself time, and put it to correct employ.
