MARVEL’S AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. seemed to have wrapped up its various storylines at the end of Season 5 in an episode entitled “The End.” SHIELD director Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) chose to deny himself a life-saving antidote that Daisy/Quake (Chloe Bennet) could instead use it to save the world. Fitz (Iain De Caestecker) also died heroically, but due to a time paradox, another version of Fitz was still in stasis in space, leaving the possibility that his wife Jemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge) might someday find him. We last saw Coulson on a beach in Tahiti, enjoying his last days with […]Read On »
