Television: Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., "The Beginning of the End"

Season finale!

I won't go into the details. Let's just consult the checklist instead.

  1. Fitz and Simmons alive? Check. (Though Fitz is barely alive. But alive is alive, so . . . Check. Nice of Nick Fury to come pick them up in the chopper.)
  2. Garrett defeated? Check. (In a fun fake-out they made it seem like he might rise again, but Coulson took care of that.)
  3. Mike/Deathlok liberated and reunited with his son? Check. (Other Cybertek soldiers also liberated, though now they'll all have only one eye.)
  4. Ward . . . Something? Check. Ward has gone from colorless to major asshole in one fell swoop. But he's now in custody and May is ready to break him, in more ways than one.

And where does that leave us for next season? Fury has tasked Coulson with rebuilding S.H.I.E.L.D. Too bad Coulson is going a little crazy and carving diagrams into the walls.

We've also still got Reina out there doing her thing, and since she knows about Skye's odd origins . . . Well, actually, it turns out she knows at least one of Skye's parents! Family reunion forthcoming? We'll have to wait 'til fall to find out.
