After trips to Inhuman outposts, the future and the framework; and facing down foes like Hydra and AIDA, it seems Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is headed to the end. Or, at least this promo for next week’s season finale — titled “The End” — suggests, not everyone will make it out alive should the show be renewed by ABC.
And currently, the show’s real life cliffhanger is more thrilling than the show itself. Not to say the series has gone down a bad road, mind. Turning Talbot (Adrian Pasdar) into the final boss is both heartbreaking and thematically satisfactory. So is using the objectives from their earliest missions to bring things full circle. Which really suggests ABC already knows its choice and gave the writing team appropriate space to work their way back to the beginning to find the end.
That’s assuming the show is over, of course.
Back in the story, though, the team is left with one final choice, use the remaining fluid to save Coulson’s life or end Talbot; the exact choice Yo-Yo’s (Natalia Cordova Buckley) future self warned her about. Which choice will they make and will they be able to break the time loop before Thanos makes them vanish?
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. airs Fridays on ABC.
