That is about as vague as it gets, but should serve as good news for longtime fans. The question is, what will they "bump" into? Unfortunately, without more to work with, anything at this point would be wild and mostly baseless speculation. In the early seasons, the connections to the MCU were more prominent. Samuel L.

"May is very torn, because on the one hand, she understands the need to have them as allies as opposed to having them as the enemy, especially with Hive [Brett Dalton] in the mix right now and him being able to control the Inhumans. But there lies the dilemma, because as much as we want to believe and trust the Inhumans, they are the unstable, unknown element.

The data tells its own story about political interference into how doctors practice medicine. Texas has long been a testing ground for radical abortion restrictions; it also has the highest maternal mortality rate not only in the country, but in the developed world. After Tuesday’s Texas Senate vote on SB 25, it now heads to the state House. But no matter what happens with the bill, it’s important to wake up to political interference into medicine, and realize that pregnant people now need to ask their doctors: Is this information coming from you, or from a lawmaker? … [Read more...] about How Politicians Force Doctors to Lie to Women
