There isn’t much to be gleaned from Marvel’s official synopsis of the Agents of SHIELD season finale, “The Beginning of the End” but we’ll do what we can. You can consider some of this to contain mild spoilers, so beware if you want to go into the finale totally cold…
Here’s that brief synopsis, and then we’ll get into the details:
So, Deathlok, who returns on the next episode, “Nothing Personal” will still play a role as we finish out the season. Bill Paxton’s Agent Garrett remains the big baddie, so expect him to survive the next few episodes. While it’s not mentioned here, we do know what Samuel L. Jackson will make an appearance as Nick Fury. While Ian Quinn and Raina are still on the scene, hopefully this will see the end of Quinn, the least menacing villain in recent TV history. Hopefully B.J. Britt’s presence as Agent Triplett means that he’ll be back as a series regular should Agents of SHIELD get picked up for a second season. And…why the heck is Agent Koenig here? A little surprising considering recent events. Agents of SHIELD “The Beginning of the End” airs on Tuesday, May 13th at 8 pm EST. Keep up with all our Agents of SHIELD coverage right here.
