Television in 2020 saw the conclusion of one of the favorite TV show around EYG. Marvel’s Agents of Shield broadcast its seventh and final season of the superhero/spy drama and it was some of the best episodes of the series.
While initially, the cast believed that season 5, which saw a happily ever after ending for Philandra (Coulson and May), would be the final one. However, ABC surprised them with an order for two more shortened seasons.
Although season six was good, but not the best of the series, season 7 was unbelievable as the Agents of Shield went into the time stream and found themselves jumping around time.
We had spent so much time with these characters that this final stretch became remarkably emotional and, at times, painful.
Perhaps the best episode of the entire series was directed by our very own Simmons, Elizabeth Henstridge and was titled by “As I Have Always Been.” It saw the death of Enoch (Joel Stoffer), the Chronicon who had joined the group by befriending FitzSimmons.
Another amazing twist of the season was how the team wound up in the time with Daniel Sousa, a character from the Agent Carter ABC series. The inclusion of Sousa, along with the chemistry-filled relationship with Daisy, brought a new dynamic to the show. While I did not have a connection to Sousa in Agent Carter (although I know he was a hugely popular character there), it did not take long to fall in love with the fish out of water agent.
Then, the finale was so awesome too, but one of my personal favorite moment was when Melinda May embraced her past and admitted to her kick ass status as The Cavalry! She crashed through the ceiling in a perfect timed moment to crush villainous Sybil. I legitimately called out when it happened.
Agents of Shield was filled with action, adventure, humor, emotions and tears. The seventh season was the perfect way to wind the series up (even though I would absolutely watch more episodes if they would make them). That is even with the fact that Coulson and May did not end up together.
Thank you to Clark Gregg, Ming-Na Wen, Chloe Bennett, Elizabeth Henstridge, Iain De Caestecker, Henry Simmons, Natalia Cordova-Buckley, Joel Stoffer, Enver Gjokaj and Jeff Ward. This is one of my favorite shows of all time.
