It was just brought to my attention we don't have somewhere to discuss speculations and theories about the rest of the season so here goes 🙂
Remember anything about FUTURE episodes in each of the episode review & discussion threads should be tagged with spoiler tags.
You can however discuss speculation and spoilers for the rest of the season without spoiler tags in this thread.

Thoughts on Jack Thompson:
I think most people believe that the Arena club is a front for Hydra (or a sect of Hydra) due to this evidence:
This would suggest Vernon Masters is a member. I think Masters (a pretty ominous name if you ask me) may be grooming Thompson to be a part of this organization. My hope is that we will finally see exactly how Hydra infiltrated SHIELD. If the SSR becomes SHIELD sooner rather than later, I think we will maybe see Thompson as Hydra's first mole. Masters seems to have, thus far, disguised his attempts to cover for the Council as patriotism. Given the Red Scare going on at the time, Masters may be able to convince Thompson that this is the case in working against the SSR and by the time Jack realizes the truth (if he ever does) he may just play along to keep out of federal prison, because by that point he would be a traitor.
I think at this point Thompson is still a wild card and may really be struggling to decide what is right, but the question is whether his desire for success and notoriety will outweigh other factors for him. Or, if the SSR becomes SHIELD soon, Thompson's wounded ego may lead him to turn against Peggy immediately if she is put in charge over him. Regardless, I think it would be really interesting to see the first moments of Hydra infiltration in SHIELD.

I discovered something kind of interesting tonight. During the end of "Better Angels" (203) Sousa is looking at a file (which Thompson rips from his hand). The file is on Broxton, OK. Broxton is the future site of Asgard in the comics (Asgard falls to Earth in the late 2000s). It may just be a little easter egg to make the comics' fans smile, but I think it would be kind of interesting if this is the first reference to what may be coming after Ragnarok!
