Season finales often bring with them surprising twists and turns, in addition to some devastating consequences. Marvel's Agents of SHIELD's fifth season concluded tonight and delivered audiences some truly shocking moments and, sadly, some final goodbyes.
WARNING: Spoilers below for Marvel's Agents of SHIELD
Heading into the episode, fans believed that either Agent Coulson or Glenn Talbot's life hung in the balance, as the Centipede serum could be used to save one while eradicating the other. Thanks to Quake, Talbot is launched into orbit, left to die in the vacuum of space. Coulson is revived, briefly, but retires from SHIELD and heads to Tahiti with Agent May.
Additionally, Agent Fitz is crushed by debris, though his actual body has been placed in a stasis, launching the team's rescue mission to recover his body.
Fans of the series have been on edge for weeks as the fate of the series was yet to be confirmed. Ultimately, ABC decided to renew the series, though Season Six won't debut until summer of 2019, making it a very long wait for fans who are interested in seeing the return of their favorite characters.
