  • Johnson reveals to Fitz and Mackenzie that she has been tracking some of the Watchdogs, and decides to use her powers to stop and threaten one to find out information.

Johnson quakes him and runs back to inject sodium hydrogen acetate into the implosive, but instead of neutralizing it like it should, it only slows the implosion, because of Blake's modifications to the formula. She takes him back to a Containment Module with Oscar.[13]
  • Coulson comes to realize that Felix Blake is likely not really there, but simply a holographic projection.

Phil Coulson proceeds to interrogate Gideon Malick

  • At the Playground, the interrogation of Gideon Malick begins. Coulson speaks with Malick about "Hive", and comments on the fitting nature of the name, considering his parasitic swarm-like living. Malick states that Hive can make Inhumans change loyalty and join him, and warns that he may have turned any member of the Secret Warriors.[26]
  • Walking out of interrogation, Coulson asks Agent Mackenzie to quietly lock down the base, scared to trust any of the Inhumans.[26]

She brutally murders him by quaking him from both sides, as his head is crushed and bleeds, like he saw in his vision, having assumed his killer to have been Hive. She leaves the grenade next to Malick's body to explode and thus cover up the murder.[26]
  • Mackenzie finds that there is a grenade missing as Fitz and Simmons, on their way to Coulson to discuss their findings, notice the light of the grenade from inside Malick's room. They look around and see his dead body, just before the blast goes off.[26]
  • Knowing a swayed Secret Warrior must have been behind the murder, Coulson leads his agents to gather the Inhumans, to explain the situation and incapacitate them until they can determine who it is. However, the Inhumans escape together.[26]
  • After discussing who could be the traitor, Johnson promises the team that she will help them to escape,

  • Phil Coulson and Alphonso Mackenzie intend to capture Quake again. Coulson is confident that today will be the day she shows up. Johnson, keeping the promise she made to Charles Hinton several months earlier, meets with Polly and Robin Hinton in the square, and gives Robin the wooden robin figure her father carved for her. Polly thanks her for all her help.[54][55]
  • Coulson and Mackenzie notice Johnson and run to chase her. Johnson realizes that S.H.I.E.L.D. has found her and walks away to evade them, using her vibrational powers to lift herself off the ground in a very high jump onto a nearby roof, escaping successfully. The duo board a Quinjet to return to the Zephyr One.[54]
Ascension AIDA

Aida's birthday


  • After letting Quake slip through their fingers yet again, Mackenzie and Coulson return to base for another restock and catch-up, and to celebrate New Year. They are starting to push the boundaries of the Zephyr One, coming reasonably close to its longest recorded stay in the air.[58][45][59]

  3. 3.0 3.1 3.2 3.3 3.4 When Bouncing Back picks up, it has been long enough since Maveth that Coulson is still affected by Price's death, but is able to move forward. Some time has definitely passed, but he is still questioning Campbell's suitability for the team, and Fitz is still upset about destroying Daniels' body. 6½ weeks pass in the timeline, from January 24th to March 9th, which fits well.

  5. Andrew Garner's beard in Maveth seems to indicate that he has been under HYDRA custody for around a month. The timeline works out as December 13, 2015 to January 24, 2016, which works sufficiently.
  6. In BOOM, Phil Coulson says, "I've followed my worst instincts at times. Last year. Loss will make you do that. It feels good in the moment, but it never ends well. I've lost my temper. I've killed." He is referring to murdering Ward, and refers to it as "last year". He says this on April 27, 2017, referring to January 24, 2016, which fits the statement.

  9. 9.0 9.1 In Bouncing Back, it is shown that Campbell's death in Ascension is "3 months from now". The timeline lines up that Bouncing Back begins on March 8th, and Campbell dies on June 14th, which fits well as 3 months later.
  10. 10.0 10.1 The Marvel Cinematic Universe follows a general real time policy in most of Phase Two - set when the media is released when suitable.
  11. 11.0 11.1 11.2 11.3 In The Inside Man, Malick tells Hive, "I made some moves this week to ensure we have all the Inhumans we need when the time comes." This implies the kidnapping of Lucio was within the last week. Malick also needed to make a deal with the Watchdogs a few weeks before Watchdogs, and it would make sense for this to be included under this statement as well.

  15. In Parting Shot, the Russians skeptically say to Hunter and Morse, "In the woods of Siberia in the dead of winter." While "dead of winter" implies January/February-time, mid-March fits better with the timeline (the date being March 14th), and still fits this statement on the whole: the winter months in Siberia are December to March, with March still being very cold, albeit starting to slowly get a little warmer.

  17. 17.0 17.1 In The Singularity, the agents discuss, "Holden Radcliffe… He [worked] at the agrochemical lab we raided… He wasn't actually there [during the raid]. He was asked to step down a month before." The raid is dated as April 25th, so him leaving is dated as March 22nd, a month prior.

  24. 24.0 24.1 24.2 24.3 24.4 The WHiH Newsfront: The Avengers and the White House video, posted on April 28th, announces that Transia has appointed a new interim-CEO. This is referring to the fact that the last one died, presumably only a few days earlier. This is coupled with the onscreen text saying ""HYDRA eradicated" says Ellis Administration", implying that the Destruction of HYDRA was the night before. Working back, this would place the Transia massacre on the 24th, 4 days before the announcement of the new CEO, which fits perfectly as well.

  28. 28.0 28.1 28.2 28.3 28.4 The events of Emancipation are set shortly after the climax of Captain America: Civil War, which is set on June 10th (see other references), but The Singularity is set on April 27th-28th. In Failed Experiments, Campbell states that "it's been days" since he took the antidote. The reasoned date for him saying this is June 11th (one day after Rogers and Barnes go missing), and so Failed Experiments is reasoned to be dated as June 6th. There is also the necessity of 3 months to pass between Bouncing Back and Ascension. All these things create a necessary time gap of a little over a month between The Singularity and Failed Experiments, in which Radcliffe works on improving the experiment, and S.H.I.E.L.D. search for Hive and Johnson from satellite imagery.
  29. In BOOM, Radcliffe tells the Superior, "Pure Terrigen crystals. I picked up some samples last year when I was working for a previous benefactor. His goals were, well, the complete opposite of yours." He is referring to Hive, and his plan to increase the number of Inhumans, rather than kill them. He says this on April 27, 2017, referring to April-June 2016, which fits the statement of "last year".
  30. Scott Derrickson says that Doctor Strange spans one year. While he goes on to explain that he thinks the film spans from one year's fall to the next year's fall, this does not work with other timeline evidence, not lining up with Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Season 4 at all, and not particularly working with WHiH either. Derrickson goes on to say, "Don't hold me to this, because I haven't thought about this in a long time," allowing for leniency to make the timeline work. To fit with WHiH and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., while also working with the depicted weather (see other references), the film spans 10 months - close to a year, but from May 2016 to March 2017.

  32. 32.0 32.1 32.2 WHiH Newsfront refers to Stephen Strange as a top NYC surgeon in a May 2nd post and May 3rd video. This indicates that Strange has not yet had his car accident. Strange is giving an interview on new innovative life-saving techniques as well, which seems to be the same techniques which appear in the beginning of the movie. Palmer also talks to him about all his press and recent interviews early on, of which this WHiH interview could well be one of the interviews she is referring to. All of this indicates that the opening takes place shortly after the WHiH coverage of May 2nd and 3rd.

  36. 36.0 36.1 36.2 36.3 In the Spider-Man: Homecoming Prelude, it is shown that Spider-Man preventing the car accident (also seen in YouTube footage in Captain America: Civil War), the Attack on the IFID Headquarters, and Stark's MIT speech are all on the same day. Because of WHiH (see other references), we know this day to be May 3, 2016.
  37. 37.0 37.1 37.2 As Maximoff watches TV, the Attack on the IFID Headquarters is stated to be "last month". The Spider-Man: Homecoming Prelude also states that the Bombing of the Vienna International Centre is "one month later", after Lagos. WHiH gave the timeline date for the Lagos incident as May 3rd (see other references), and the interview is dated as June 5th, with the bombing as June 8th, fitting as one month later.
  38. 38.0 38.1 WHiH Newsfront: 2.05: WHiH Breaking News: Attack in Lagos
  39. 39.0 39.1 39.2 39.3 The WHiH Newsfront campaign posted videos and Twitter posts relating to the Attack on the IFID Headquarters, an event depicted in Captain America: Civil War, stating it to be on May 3, 2016.
  40. 40.0 40.1 Scott Derrickson says that Stephen Strange recovered for "about 3 to 6 months". The timeline uses a little over 4 months, as roughly the midpoint of this statement. This also works for having the evening when Strange loses his temper at Palmer be September, working well with the rainy weather.
  41. 41.0 41.1 Thaddeus Ross says that the signing of the Accords in Vienna is set to happen "three days from now", on the day of his meeting with the Avengers, which is dated as June 5th. This places the Bombing of the Vienna International Centre on June 8th.
  42. 42.0 42.1 In Captain America: Civil War, Stark says that Spencer decided to "spend his summer" in Sokovia, making May 2015 the earliest possible timeframe for Avengers: Age of Ultron. Zemo says he has spent "over a year" planning his revenge. This is on June 5, 2016, so the Battle of Sokovia being on May 6, 2015 works.

  47. In Captain America: Civil War, Parker tells Stark, "I've had these powers for 6 months." The date of him saying this is reasoned as June 9, 2016. The ending of Ant-Man is set shortly after he becomes Spider-Man. To appease both, the "6 months" is stretched to 7, with him being bitten on November 5, 2015, and there is a time jump of 3 months between Lang and van Dyne's kiss and Wilson looking for Lang.
  48. In Captain America: Civil War, Parker is coming home from school when he encounters Stark. He also implies that he has school the next day, because he feels unable to go to Germany considering he's got school and homework to worry about. However, it seems that when Parker returns from Germany two days later, it is the weekend, as he is at home, tending to his injuries. His encounter with Stark is dated as June 9th, a Thursday, with his return being Saturday June 11th.

  50. In Emancipation, when Coulson reads the papers reporting on Carter's death, they state that she died aged 95. Her date of birth was April 9, 1921, definitively placing her passing between April 9, 2016, and April 8, 2017. Her date of death on the timeline is June 5, 2016, which fits this statement.

  55. 55.0 55.1 In Ascension, the scene with Quake's escape is shown as "6 months later", after Lincoln Campbell's death. Campbell's death is dated as June 14th, and the escape is December 11th, which fits this statement.
  56. 56.00 56.01 56.02 56.03 56.04 56.05 56.06 56.07 56.08 56.09 56.10 56.11 56.12 56.13 56.14 56.15 56.16 56.17 56.18 After Ascension, Daisy Johnson goes rogue for 9 months. 6 months in, in December 2016, we see a map of her movements with pins on reported Quake incidents over the timespan. These numerous happenings are added to the timeline in the appropriate places, and the subsequent mentions that there were also incidents in Sunbury and Baltimore are slotted in at the right points as well.

It is said in Vendetta that "Coulson had just stepped down" in the scene in which we see him heading off to board the Zephyr for the beginning of the six-month span. Due to the April 17, 2017 date in Wake Up, The Ghost ideally picks up in March 2017 (see other references). Working back from this, the events of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Slingshot, and the first boarding of the Zephyr, is in September 2016. This works with Slingshot, as it picks up just before Broken Promises on April 13, 2017 (see other references), it then flashes back to the Baltimore incident, referring to it as "Several months ago". With the Baltimore event on September 26, 2016, this is 7 months prior. It is dated as late September - September 26, 2016, to allow time for Mace being selected for, and then go through Project Patriot, but still fit with Mace's statement in The Patriot, "Few months [after Vienna], Talbot came to me with an offer." This still fits, with the bombing being on June 8th, and his selection being September 4th, 3 months later. It is implied that Mackenzie and Coulson began testing the limits of the Zephyr, to go for weeks and weeks on a thorough hunt for Johnson, and that the director wanted to keep Coulson's Team apart after he took over, as the duo get to only see their friends every few weeks when coming back for restock. They get back after their last trip of 6 weeks (their furthest yet, impressing Fitz), and Fitz and Simmons are excited to see them, with Fitz exclaiming, "Six weeks. That's a record!" Coulson at this point has indeed spent 6 months with Mackenzie living mostly on the plane - September 26, 2016 to March 18, 2017.

  65. Mads Mikkelsen says that Strange trains for about 9 months before his fight with Kaecilius. However, due to the rainy weather when Strange falls out with Palmer, that scene is dated as September, but there is snow during the Ancient One's death scene, meaning it cannot be later than early March, especially with the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Season 4 timeline. Because of this, Strange trains for 6 months.
