Finally, there’s a break in the darkness… mostly. Things take a turn for the comedic, and we sort of get an MCU/80’s Spring Break movie mash up as the Watcher looks into “What If… Thor Were An Only Child?”
After an enjoyable seven seasons, it’s time to say goodbye to some old friends.
After seven seasons, lots of fighting, battles, and successful missions, it’s the end of the line for the Agents of SHIELD. The series wraps up with a two-hour, double-episode finale, so this will be split in two parts.
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.
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.
Deke and Mack have been left behind in 1982 for a very odd, but highly entertaining, episode that crams in as many 80’s references as it can.
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 final season of Agents of SHIELD has the team hopping through time, and bouncing back and forth between the East and West Coasts of the United States. Their last stop has landed them in New York City in the 1970’s.
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…
Izel, the shrikes, and the mystery behind Sarge have dominated this season. Now, in a double length finale, all that gets wrapped up.
