Whether you realize it or not, May is right around the corner (and I ain’t talking Melinda). Fans have been waiting for the final season of Agents of SHIELD for what seems like forever and their patience may be rewarded. The official Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Twitter account gave fans a slice of what they can expect this season and MAN, the hype is real!
Let’s break down what exactly is going on here. The teaser gives us an establishing shot of New York City around the mid to late 1920s. The nearly completed Empire State Building helps hammer home the time period. The next couple of shots show the crew with a new unknown character as Melinda questions: “Where are we now?”
Following that, we have an intense glare with Deke pointing at the camera and Mack being a badass with a shotgun (shocker). In between are transition shots that are possibly on the Quinn jet or a SHIELD base. Either way, futuristic tech and possibly torture are evident. Just who is being tortured is still up in the air.
The bomb is then dropped as we find out from Daisy and LMD Coulson that they must save Hydra! This pretty much guarantees that the crew is in the past for a portion of the season. With SHIELD not being shy of bringing all sorts of crazy narratives, time travel doesn’t seem too out of the ordinary.
The bigger question is, what does this mean for the crew? Will the gang have to break the unwritten SHIELD code? How about Peggy Carter? Will we get a cameo from the talented Hayley Atwell? Will Melinda finally get back the real Coulson or will the doppelganger suffice? Hopefully, all will be answered sooner rather than later.
You can catch Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD on May 27th.
