Stargirl 1x5; Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. 7x4
The Hourman and Dr. Mid-Nite backgrounds are introduced: Rick is an angry young man whose parents were killed in a car accident and he got stuck with an uncle who never wanted to raise a kid. His father was Rex Tyler, Hourman. Beth Chapel is a nerd through-and-through, but the goggles of Dr. Mid-Nite work for her.
When Courtney, Yolanda and Beth reveal Rick's heritage to him, he focuses on the super-strength he can command for an hour at a time and trashes his uncle's truck and destroys the tree his parents crashed into. When he finds out that the accident was murder via Dr. Mid-Nite's goggles showing him the actual events, he's in with the new Justice Society, but he's not looking for justice, but revenge.
Pat discovers Courtney took several items from the Hall of Justice.
Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. 7x4
After being short-circuited, LMD Coulson sees things in literal black-and-white and a film noir-ish voice narrates the episode: on July 22, 1955, Daniel Sousa is killed after delivering important tech to Howard Stark. His death inspires S.H.I.E.L.D.agents for decades to come.
Enoch helps the field agents stay in contact with the Zephyr and feels as if he's not valued. He's been the bartender at the safehouse bar since 1931, and now it's called The Crazy Canoe, a Hawaiian-themed place. :)
While going for the tech, Deke is captured by HYDRA agents and reminds 'Freddie' (now Wilfred) Malick of sparing his life in 1931. Malick repays the favor but warns Deke that if they meet again, the debt has been paid.
Daniel is attacked by the Chronicoms in the dining car of the train going to L.A. (Coulson is with him) and the agents save his bacon! He is brought aboard the Zephyr and discovers the agents are from the future. He leaves the ship to complete his mission and is killed...but it's Coulson instead! So now Daniel is a man-out-of-time, as everyone he knows thinks he's dead.
Meanwhile, May discovers that she has no emotions but can feel others' emotions in close proximity to them. Also, the Chronicoms contact Wilfred Malick.
