The Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 3 finale arrived with a big tease of things to come. With major spoilers, here’s our take...

This article contains spoilers for the Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 3 finale, and Captain America: Civil War.

Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. has done it again – concluded a season with a big tease about something from the comics. Last year, they had us talking about the Secret Warriors, and this time around it’s Life Model Decoys. Daisy’s fate, the new director, and the double-death of Hive and Lincoln are also hefty talking points. They crammed a lot in didn’t they?

Here’s our attempt to break it all down, and work out what the conclusion of Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 3 means for the future of the show...

The actual ending

If the ‘six months later’ section was the televised equivalent of an extended post-credits tease of things to come, »

‘Agents of Shield’ Finale: Bosses Break Down Deaths, Time Jump and Final Scene

17 May 2016 11:00 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Spoilers: Do not read on unless you’ve seen the “Agents of Shield” Season 3 finale, Episodes 21 and 22, titled “Absolution” and “Ascension.”

“Marvel’s Agents of Shield” capped off its Season 3 finale with a heartbreaking twist, which saw Lincoln (Luke Mitchell) sacrifice himself to take down Hive (Brett Dalton) — leaving both characters dead and Daisy (Chloe Bennet) devastated. But in true “Shield” fashion, the shocks didn’t stop there, as the episode then jumped ahead six months, revealing that Daisy was no longer with Shield, and Coulson (Clark Gregg) was no longer Director of the agency — with him and Mack (Henry Simmons) on the hunt for their former operative, who was traveling incognito and leaving a trail of seismic destruction in her wake. Elsewhere, Holden Radcliffe (John Hannah) was celebrating the “birth” of his Artificial Intelligence creation Aida, in the form of a Life Model Decoy — a concept that Marvel fans »

‘Agents of Shield’ Season Finale Death Will Be a ‘Game-Changing Event’

17 May 2016 11:38 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The “Marvel’s Agents of Shield” Season 3 finale is promising at least one major death as the show hurtles towards the ominous premonition that Daisy had earlier this season, which saw one member of the team trapped in space as an explosion engulfed their ship.

Co-creator Jed Whedon teases that the impact of the finale’s death will be “profound,” telling Variety, “We don’t want to tip anything, but it’s not a buy-back; we really do commit to putting our characters through a game-changing event.”

“Shield’s” season finales are always pretty eventful – and the past two have centered around the shifting alliances and unpredictable motivations of former agent Grant Ward, who died at the end of this year’s midseason finale and subsequently had his body taken over by the powerful Inhuman parasite known as Hive.

Agent Carter: The Context Of Its Cancellation, And The Petition To Save It

16 May 2016 5:56 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

At this point, it is almost tradition. A television network cancels a series, and fans of that series revolt. Back in the day, devotees would organise letter-writing campaigns, and inundate studios and network offices with missives pleading for their favourite show to be renewed. In this modern era, with the rise of social media, the reaction time is greatly reduced. Now, Twitter fills with bitter tears, and digital petitions are quickly circulated. Such is the case for Agent Carter – recently cancelled by ABC, and now the subject of a popular change.org petition, initiated by ‘Arnau S’ of Spain, asking Netflix to save the show.

Agent Carter has been a fantastic series. It was unlike anything else on television – including its stable-mate, Agents Of Shield – and it consistently delivered high quality storytelling, and a remarkable central performance from Hayley Atwell as the titular spy. For those of us, in particular, »

Marvel's Agents of Shield S3 E18, 'The Singularity' - thematic analysis

13 May 2016 1:58 PM, PDT | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

(spoilers)

Marvel's Agents of Shield S3 E18, 'The Singularity', written by Lauren LeFranc and directed by Garry A. Brown, is a very thematically coherent episode. This in itself is a representation of disparate elements coming together to form one (connected) thing or system, which is the theme of the episode.

Several other previous Marvel's Agents of Shield episodes (e.g. S3 E2), as well as Iron Man 3, also have this kind of thematic coherency. The Marvel Cinematic Universe also arguably functions the same way: each story works on its own terms, but they also inter-relate, and taken together, the world-building is extraordinary, making the McU more than the sum of its parts.

This episode's theme is in some ways similar to a key thematic conceit of Buffy the Vampire Slayer:  the tension between aloneness and togetherness. Hive controls Inhumans, forming a hive mind, and making them happy (kind »

How Does Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Tie Into Civil War?

10 May 2016 12:43 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ever since Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. debuted on ABC in the fall of 2013, the show has featured a number of connections to the Marvel Cinematic Universe at large. Samuel L. Jackson showed up early on in the first season as Nick Fury, and towards the season's end, the events of Captain America: The Winter Soldier had a huge impact, featuring the fall of S.H.I.E.L.D. itself. The show also helped address the aftermath of Thor: The Dark World, featuring a special guest appearance by Jaimie Alexander's Lady Sif in the show's second season. With Captain America: Civil War currently playing in theaters, fans have been wondering how the show will address the events of this blockbuster. Today, we have new details about how the movie's plot will affect this show. There will be plenty of Spoilers for Captain America: Civil War and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., so »

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 3 Episode 15 Review – ‘Spacetime’

7 April 2016 12:30 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Danny Hale reviews the fifteenth episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 3…

With series creators Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen penning the script and Kevin Tancharoen directing it was no real surprise that this weeks Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. stood out. With little preamble our team headed into the field to investigate a call for Daisy. We were quickly introduced to a new Inhuman, a recently homeless man named Charles. If he makes physical contact with anybody both parties are subjected to visions that show the death of another person. It was a cool mechanic and set up the episode nicely; from Hydra’s amazingly blatant public attack to Edwin getting gunned down and Charles being taken from right in front of Daisy, I was invested right away. We know how empathetic Daisy is and so for her to lose two civilians immediately followed by an ominous vision showing more doom for »

'Captain America: Civil War' Has a Ripple Effect on 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'

21 March 2016 5:07 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Long before Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. debuted on ABC back in 2013, it was confirmed that the show will be a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, bringing back Clark Gregg as Agent Coulson, who was presumed to be dead after Marvel's The Avengers. The show has featured a number of stars from the McU, such as Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury), Cobie Smulders (Maria Hill) and Jaimie Alexander (Lady Sif), but the show's biggest connection to the McU happened in the aftermath of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, where S.H.I.E.L.D. was dismantled after it was learned that Hydra had infiltrated the organization decades ago. Executive producer Jed Whedon revealed in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter that the upcoming Phase Three movie Captain America: Civil War will most certainly also have an impact on the show.

"It will definitely have a ripple effect. It is one world, »
