The latest episode of Agents of SHIELD, "As I Have Always Been," followed Daisy and Coulson as they struggled to get out of a time loop. Once they realize the only way to save the team is to sacrifice Enoch (Joel Stoffer), the Chronicom gives up his life without hesitation to save his friends. The character's arc ended with a beautiful monologue written by Drew Z. Greenberg and performed by Stoffer. This tragic moment was met with lots of praise (and sadness) from fans, and they're not the only ones. TV Line named Stoffer their performer of the week, which caught the attention of much of the cast and crew.
“Our Performer of the Week: #AgentsofSHIELD's Joel Stoffer,” @TVLine wrote. “Thank you TVLine. Thank you,” Stoffer replied. You can check out the article below:

Atta boy @obleyo!
Joel showed up to be a silhouetted voice season four. The #AgentsofSHIELD writers all loved what he did and so we kept writing him in. #Enoch is the best friend any character could hope for. https://t.co/Xh7e3cvr0K— James C. Oliver (@JamesOliverInLA) July 25, 2020
