Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD wrapped up its seven-season run tonight doing what it’s done best: playing by its own rules. While there was one big nod to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it was more about science than characters. Still, the two-parter still brought the feels, even as it brought many things full-circle. (It also makes me want to go back and rewatch the end of season six, but I imagine I’ll get there some time soon.) And while it didn’t take the path I had hoped, it still wrapped things up with a nice bow or two. Here’s the final scene, which ABC posted a few hours ago. I wouldn’t normally post something so final and so spoilery so quickly, but this is more for posterity’s sake.
Scripted television is now over for a good while, it seems. And when it comes back, there won’t be any Marvel on ABC. But that’s okay. SHIELD had a good run.
