Fans of “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” can’t contain their excitement over the return of the show next year following an explosive mid-season finale that delivered on all its promises.
According to a report by Inquisitr, the episode titled “Maveth” set social media on fire over the positive feedback from the show’s loyal viewers.
It has earlier been reported that there will be casualties in the episode and true to the show’s promise, there was a death in the episode that was delivered in slow and dramatic fashion.
Prior to the mid-season finale, fans were wondering whether the casualty would be Agent Coulson himself as the synopsis hinted that he and Fitz will take the ultimate risk as Daisy and her team of Inhumans fight to counter Hydra’s offensive.
“I can only tell you that what happens before our winter finale… If you’re a fan of the show, you don’t want to miss it. There’s some really big surprises. The [writers] have really outdone themselves, and the cast is so extraordinary,” executive producer Jeph Loeb teased in an interview with Hypable.
In the end, it was long time antagonist Grant Ward who bid farewell to the series.
While the excitement has not yet died down over the winter finale, fans are already speculating what will happen in the second half of the season.
In a discussion on Fansided, one of the fan theories being floated is the possibility that Coulson will finally break and go dark when the show returns. According to the article, killing one of his own might be the final straw that breaks him. It doesn’t seem farfetched since he doesn’t to be himself lately.
Fans also expressed excitement over the possibilities presented by Joey’s newly discovered ability of melting vibranium and its implications on a possible Tony Stark guesting in the show.
