What I’m Watching: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D: Season 4, Episode 20 “Farewell, Cruel World!” (B+)

Well, they made it. Not all of them, of course, since Mack decided to stay behind with his daughter and Trip. This was definitely a huge ordeal, and you could see the relief Coulson felt as soon as he returned, with May showing up a moment later and then a completely wrecked Fitz coming through, unable to believe what he did which resulted in the deaths of both Agnes and Mace. I was worried that Fitz wasn’t going to end up going through, but Radcliffe showing one final act of loyalty to the good guys was a nice way to leave him in the framework. Something tells me they’re going to go back, partially to rescue Mack and likelier to try to find Fitz. I won’t pretend to understand how the darkhold is supposed to work, but the sight of Aida materializing and then somehow transporting Fitz somewhere just by touching him is cause for extreme concern. Aida was not happy to be losing control of her number one errand boy and true love, who was more interesting in hunting down the woman who killed his father than obeying the orders of Madame Hydra. Simmons and Daisy made it out, but it seems that those watching guard over them had to attract too much attention in order to keep them safely plugged in, and I think it’s going to be a long journey for Fitz and Simmons to be reunited, especially considering the fact that Aida is going to do everything in her power to keep Fitz for herself.
