Yesterday, Agents of SHIELD star Elizabeth Henstridge and her fiancé, Zachary Burr Abel (Make It or Break It, The Secret Circle), hosted the pre-show for Smile Train's World Smile Day event. ComicBook.com had the chance to chat with the couple, who explained the importance of the charity, how they got involved, and how easy it is to help out. We also asked Henstridge about Agents of SHIELD and what it would take to get FitzSimmons out of retirement in the event of a reunion special. As always, she gave a delightful answer.
"I think Simmons is ready," Henstridge shared. "I think Simmons is just semi-retired right now. So for her, it probably wouldn't take very much. I think that, and honestly, if we had some Twiglets in bowls... You know what Twiglets are? They're a chip that Iain's obsessed with, like a snack, it's like a savory crispy snack. If there was something where someone had gone back in time and all Twiglets were vanished and didn't exist, that would get both Iain De Caestecker and Leopold Fitz on any mission going."
This answer won't surprise any fans who tuned in to yesterday's Smile Train event as De Caestecker showed up and named Twiglets as the thing that makes him smile. You can check out a clip in a fan's tweet below:

Back in August, Henstridge talked about FitzSimmons' long-awaited happy ending.
"I mean, we've been ripped apart so many times and so many tragedies have happened and I think, you kind of talk about earning moments of happiness for them," Henstridge explained. "And I think they definitely earned that happy ending and it's also nice that they're kind of ... they still have that conflict between them of Simmons wanting to... it's like sneakily staying in the game a little bit and he's completely checked out for a while. It's nice that they've got the happily ever after, but they still have that classic bicker bickering and you know, they're not perfect."
