Full spoilers for Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD continue below.
With only a few episodes to go this season, “All the Madame’s Men” had some heavy plot lifting to do to set the stage for the Season 4 finale. As such, it was a solid episode in this pod but not a standout, making some good strides with character development and tying up loose ends, and offering an interesting twist with Aida’s storyline.
After Daisy threw Madame Hydra out a window and seriously damaged her, she knocked that version of Aida out of the Framework for long enough for her to check back in with Anton Ivanov back in the real world. There, and during Simmons’ storyline where she discovers the Framework version of where Aida is hiding, we learn a good deal more about Project Looking Glass; namely, that Aida wants to use it to create a human body for herself and circumvent her programming.
