(SPOILER) Synopsis for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. S1.13 'T.R.A.C.K.S.'. There's a very special guest star in this episode.

Aww.. don't take the fun out of it... the title is T.R.A.C.K.S.

At least we learned from F.Z.Z.T. that titles like this probably aren't going to be acronyms we have to speculate on while we wait for the episode and are just for fun. Although, now that I think about it F.Z.Z.T.'s title was released before a week off too so maybe it's designed to keep us talking over the break trying to figure out what T.R.A.C.K.S stands for.

Ha, I missed that. Tactical Reconnaissance And Covert Killing Strikeforce.
The Real Answers Can Kill Someone.
IIRC FZZT was never called F.Z.Z.T., that's just something different websites made up. FZZT is simply the sound of electricity, isn't it? Or did I miss the second meaning?

T.R.A.C.K.S. already has dots in it, so I guess it stands for... something. Would be a pretty lame joke otherwise.
Doesn't it kind of ruin the fun of the special guest cameo when they tell you about it?
ABC's publicity for the show does tend to go down the "HEY GUYS, WATCH THE EPISODE FOR THIS REALLY COOL BIT" route.
So Stan Lee as the Clairvoyant?
If Stan Lee isn't the Clairvoyant they're missing out on an epic opportunity.. ;) Unless they want the Clairvoyant to be running around in multiple episodes later on..
Am I the only one that gets fed up with Stan Lee appearing in every Marvel thing?
Yes you are.
harryK - nope, F.Z.Z.T. was in the official press info. I think the very first time the episode name was mentioned it didn't have the dots but all the official stuff that followed did.
He tends to have very small speaking roles, so it's not too bad, but I would like it better if he just had the more subtle, non-speaking, "hey, did you see that guy in the background buying peaches?" kind of role like Hitchcock used to do in his movies.
Didn't notice that Lauren LeFranc and Rafe Judkins are writing for the show. They wrote this episode and apparently The Hub as well. Responsible for some of my favorite latter-day Chuck episodes (vs. The Tic-Tac, vs. the Push Mix)
