I saved the premiere from last week and watched it again with the new ep. I needed to see it again without the constant distraction of them ignoring the snap. It helped a lot with my enjoyment of the show.
I took note of it when Snowflake was talking about people coming back as butterflies and combined with Sarge talking to Pax and the mention of a past life, that was when it clicked.
Of course they confirmed it on the show with the DNA match a few minutes after I figured it out but that is definitely Coulson. I kinda wish they would have waited another episode or two before that reveal but I am not going to complain too much because I am so stoked Coulson is alive.
Evil Coulson is actually compelling.

Calling it now. Evil Coulson is not evil. They are the good guys and they are trying to stop a greater threat. What we saw on that other world was not them causing destruction, rather it was us seeing them fail to stop it. Dude that got stuck in the wall said Pachakutiq is coming and cannot be stopped. Whatever Pachakutiq is, it is the main villain, not Sarge and his crew.
It would seem that Coulson does not know he is Coulson but his memories are still in there, as shown by his name ringing a bell. I'm very interested in finding out the explanation as to how Coulson was reincarnated.
I am officially on board with this season as of now. I still really hope they find a way to make it make sense that the snap was ignored but even if they don't, I am still going to do my best to enjoy it for what it is.
The B-plot with Fitz has been pretty damned good too.
One more time... Coulson lives!!!!!!
