Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD finished out a fantastic season with a great closing episode, successfully managing to tie together the many threads of Season 4 with a satisfying ending. And, in true SHIELD style, it ended with one heck of a cliffhanger.
Robbie Reyes’ return shifted the tone of Season 4 back toward where it was in the first pod of the season, but his return also showcased just how much has changed during his absence. To me, the Framework remains Season 4’s highpoint, even as well-executed as this finale was. Mixing both the supernatural and technological together one final time this season in the finale allowed for action sequences as great as Robbie and Daisy’s showdown against Aida and her goons, but also left room for some emotionally impactful sequences.
