After last night's episode settled at least part of the mystery of the alien writing, it looks like next week's episode, "The Things We Bury", might give us some answers to just what the obelisk/Diviner is!
So after all this time we see that what Coulson has been chasing wasn't a map, but a blueprint to an alien city. While that's all we know, it's easy to offer a guess that the city is Attilan, home of the Inhumans, a property Marvel has been developing for some time and one that will be hitting screens in 2018. Kevin Feige did tell us that we'd be seeing them sooner than expected and this may just be it.
Next week's episode, which will also feature a flashback involving Agent Carter, will seemingly turn the focus back onto Skye's father and the mysterious alien obelisk that seems like it may somehow be related to some sort of recognition of Kree/Inhuman genes in people. Check out the promo below:
If this is where all this is headed, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will really be kicking into high gear for November sweeps and be responsible for some HUGE changes going forward in the MCU!
