Last night, the feature-length finale of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. aired on ABC. The show was launched in 2013 following the $1 billion success of The Avengers, and while initial reviews were mixed, the series did eventually find its footing and developed a passionate, loyal fanbase.
Of course, things got a little weird when Captain America: The Winter Soldier featured the fall of S.H.I.E.L.D., and from that point on, there was a very clear divide between Marvel Studios and Marvel Television projects. Despite that, the series continued on ABC, and finally reached its conclusion after an impressive seven seasons (and 136 episodes).
As you might expect, the finale delivered a lot of big surprises and a definitive end for these beloved characters. With time-travel factoring into this final season, there's been a lot of speculation about how it would tie into Avengers: Endgame, and whether Agent Coulson would finally be reunited with Earth's Mightiest Heroes.
With that in mind, this feature takes an in-depth look at everything you may have missed in the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. finale, including the final fates of these characters, the stories which are set up for the future, and just how much the show ended up tying into the wider Marvel Cinematic Universe...
