The clock is ticking in Friday’s next Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. episode, as Coulson and the team go in search of Gravitonium with which to save the world.
Last week’s emotional “The Real Deal” also marked the show’s 100th reveal-filled episode. We discovered that Coulson is dying as a result of his deal with Ghost Rider, that Deke is actually Fitzsimmon’s grandson, and Daisy is not responsible for the end of the world … maybe. However, with a rift in the basement that is leaking energy from a dimension that causes our deepest fears to become manifest, the jury is still out on whether Daisy’s worst fear (becoming the Destroyer of Worlds) could still happen — but just not in the way we originally imagined.
By the episode’s end, the rift was partially sealed, thanks to the actions of Coulson and a brief appearance by Deathlok, aka Mike Peterson — the show’s very first adversary. However, like a band aid on a bullet wound, Fitz was aware their workaround was a temporary fix.
And with the loglines for next week’s episode (spoiler ahead) teasing that “As Fitz and Simmons race to find a way to seal the rift, they are faced with one of their greatest fears manifested,” we know that the rift storyline is set to continue.
