It’s very near the end of the road for the Agents of SHIELD. After this, there’s a two hour special finale, and that’s it. So, a moment of silence for the passing of a show I’ve really enjoyed with some great characters.
The final season of Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD is ticking down, and things are looking more and more desperate for the agents. The Chronicoms have been one step ahead of them in their mad dash through time, battling over timelines.
I don’t know if it happens often enough to be a trope, per se, but if you have a show that involves time travel, there’s going to be a time loop episode. I’ve seen them on Dr. Who, Legends of Tomorrow, Arrow, and the Magicians, among others.
A quick note about the New Mutants movie
We’re in their last season, the Chronicoms are trying to retroactively erase them from history, and now the Zephyr isn’t working right. Time is very much on everyone’s minds as they try and get their ship, and Yo-Yo, back in working order.
Things are getting complicated for the Agents of SHIELD as they play a sort of cat and mouse mixed with Quantum Leap type game, trying to keep their history intact. The Chronicoms have some elaborate plans to move up the worst parts of Hydra and take apart the best bits of SHIELD.
The Agents of SHIELD are having a lot of fun with their final season. They’ve made various changes in the production to accommodate the eras they end up in. Now, in the 50’s, we get a black and white, noir themed episode, even explained in story…
The Agents of SHIELD have been through a lot. Spinning out of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and even having a few guest stars from the MCU, the agents have drifted further and further from the movies, and the hoped-for crossover, or at least connection, with the now defunct Marvel/Netflix shows never happened. The show itself…
It’s been a rough season for Jessica and her friends. Everything ends here: the season, the series, the Marvel/Netflix world, and this incarnation of the character from what Krysten Ritter has said.
Last episode ended with the shocking death of Dorothy Walker, and Trish going to get her revenge on Salinger. Jessica, guided by both her own moral code and her love for Trish, stopped her sister from doing something she couldn’t come back from and got her out of there. Now, there will be repercussions, heightened tension, and a lot of trying to manage fallout.
