SHIELD Stars on Why Now’s the Time THAT FitzSimmons Twist

Full spoilers for Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD’s winter premiere, “Fun & Games,” continue below.

It’s a moment that the cast sees as a long time coming. IGN was on set for the big proposal scene (well, the second one, when Jemma could actually hear Fitz) and spoke to stars Iain de Caestecker and Elizabeth Henstridge about their reaction to this latest FitzSimmons plot twist.

Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD: “Fun & Games” Review

Warning: Full spoilers for the episode below.

Usually when a key cast member of a TV series is given an opportunity to direct an episode, it’s a somewhat middling affair. Not the effort, but the episode’s stakes/story. Fortunately, for star Clark Gregg, “Fun & Games” was a crucial, action-filled chapter that spiced things up as draw near this space saga’s endgame. There was plenty of brawling, visual FX, and characters getting wiped out. Sure, the body count involved new characters, the ones we’ve met in the future, but it was the sort of herd-thinning this arc needed.
