First of all, I just want to say that I think the new season is great. Quality writing, moving character arcs forward, the new characters are good, I’m interested and engaged, etc.
But from a writing/continuity standpoint, I feel like the season is a cop out, since anything that happens will presumably get overwritten when they return to the present day. This is just my assumption, but I’m pretty sure that’s what will happen at the end of the season; they’ll have discovered what actually destroyed the planet (again, I assume it wasn’t Daisy, but maybe it was, in which case I’m sure she had her reasons, but the recent reintroduction of gravitonium leads me to believe that it will be at least somewhat involved), they’ll find the white monolith and go back to the present, and stop whatever it is that ultimately destroys the planet. Meanwhile, this entire season will have had *zero* effect on the rest of the MCU, since everything they’re doing in the future will have been reverted.
