Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
The Final Four
Season 6, Episodes 10 to 13 Trailer


"I can feel the rage churning underneath my skin...It's all coming back to me. The memories, the pain, her song ringing through every bone in my body."‬

I knew they weren't done with Sarge after May unexpectedly shot him last week. His story can't end there! We need to know why he looks like Coulson, why they have the same DNA. It would be quite the coincidence that the team just happened to meet the doppelganger of their leader and friend after his death, and that one had nothing to do with the other. The writers wouldn't do that, I hoped all season. Thankfully, they didn't and it looks more epic than I could have imagined.

Speaking of epic, are they hinting at the "Snap" here with Sarge starting to disintegrate and pulling himself back together by will or by power? (Well, I was on the wrong track with that, but pay attention to the next sentence.) Last season, the Confederacy made themselves known to claim what they could and make a deal for protection before Thanos arrived, and Talbot fused with Gravitonium in a desperate attempt to be the one to save Earth. A huge fight ensued, which we both won and lost so much.

Then a year went by. I assumed either they weren't going to deal with it and suddenly they're in a new timeline or, better yet, Thanos just hadn't arrived yet, that the Confederacy had heard accounts far in advance. That's my hope, anyway, for these final four episodes. My hope is never as powerful, though, as what the writers and this cast brings us, and this glimpse of what the team is about to face was stunning.

Yet, after so much incredible storytelling over these past six seasons that only got richer, we must say goodbye. If you haven't heard the news yet, spoiler alert, next season will be S.H.I.E.L.D.'s last. At least they get to go on their own terms, with one more jaw-dropping season, rather than being cancelled out of the blue without having the chance to write an ending.

It's been too long since my last post: the final trailer for Endgame. It was a massive hit and a massively painful final bow for some in the MCU, the way the season five finale of MAOS was such a blow. It's wonderful that they got the time they needed to finish this story, even though what they did in "The End" was a poignant and powerful way to go out; and it's nice to be writing again, even if only for a few minutes... I just checked and, actually, my last post was a preview clip for MAOS "Missing Pieces," but I don't want to change what I wrote above.
