There seems to be surprise and consternation that Agents of SHIELD will be taking a rest in February, likely during the Winter Olympics. Don't believe your pals at Phantastic Geek? Here's the proof:
One: ABC's press site has advance info through episode 5x10, "Past Life," stated to air on February 2nd. That episode will also be the 98th episode overall, as well as the last episode before the Winter Olympics starts its flow of pageantry, sports most of us Americans don't understand, and advertising opportunities. Oh, and the world will come together too!
Two: Marvel's website is celebrating Agents of SHIELD's 100th episode with some artwork--and notes that the 100th episode will air on March 9th. It is important to note that this episode will be 5x12.
Three: The Winter Olympics Closing Ceremony will air on Sunday, February 25th (meaning there will be Olympic coverage on the preceding Friday).
Our conclusion: Agents of SHIELD takes a break for most of February; after its (pod-finale?) episode on February 2nd, it will return with episode 5x11 on Friday, March 2nd.
Our Agents of SHIELD podcast will continue to cover the show every week, both here on PhantasticGeek.com and on iTunes.
