In just a few days, season 3 of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will come to an end, but the season is not the only thing that will be finished. When the final credits role, there will be one less agent from the S.H.I.E.L.D. team. The team has already changed a few times throughout this season alone, most notably with Bobbi (Adrianne Palicki) and Hunter (Nick Blood) leaving the show to work on the Marvel’s Most Wanted pilot (which is not happening), but there will be at least one more person gone sooner rather than later.
Everybody within S.H.I.E.L.D. is a candidate, and that includes Luke Mitchell‘s Lincoln. The actor talked to Comic Book Resources about the finale, and obviously they were interested in finding out who bites the dust. CBR told Mitchell that he is a fan favorite to die in some fashion, but he says that every single one of you should be worried about whoever you’re favorite
The fans think Lincoln is going to die? That’s not really a surprise, given how risky his behavior has been in recent episodes. He’s willing to do anything to get Daisy back, he’s wearing a murder vest, then he’s infecting himself with anti-toxins. Lincoln has come close to death a number of times. I’ll just say fans should be worrying about all of their favorite characters. Everyone has their brush with death.
If Lincoln is the one to die, that could be the purpose that he has. Lincoln has repeatedly said that each Inhuman has a distinct purpose. Last week we found out that Lash’s real purpose was to save Daisy, but in the two hour finale we will learn what Lincoln’s purpose is.
That’s a very good question, and something that will be answered in the season finale.
Speaking of Daisy, Lincoln and her have started a romantic relationship this season and it has gone though it’s rough patches. They do not always see eye to eye, and he even tricked her in order to save her from Hive. With Daisy now back in S.H.I.E.L.D., their will definitely be time spent on how their relationship has changed after her encounter with Hive. Mitchell says that fans who ship this couple will not enjoy the state of their relationship.
They originally never had any relationship. As the seasons have gone on, it’s become more and more complicated. Fans of Daisy and Lincoln as a couple will be frustrated. You want them to be happy and together, [but] everything is working against that. The beauty of that is, their love is stronger than their needs. That’s what comes to the fore in terms of making the right decision.
No matter what Daisy gets involved with or how she acts, Lincoln will always try to rescue and protect Daisy. He has shown that repeatedly over the course of this season and if that means going toe to toe with hive, he’ll do it. Whatever Lincoln does and whatever his purpose is revealed to be, Mitchell says that Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will never be the same when this season comes to an end.
He’s willing to do almost anything to help S.H.I.E.L.D. defeat Hive, because he’s seen the danger of Hive. Hive is the most powerful Inhuman. Lincoln knows the threat is very real, but now that he has Daisy back — let’s just say, he’s going to throw himself into whatever he can. Lincoln will do whatever he can to help the team.
I’d be very surprised if there is a dry eye by the end of the finale; we’re definitely going to pull on the heart strings. Without being too dramatic, or spoiling things, I’m not sure the show will ever be the same. I’m curious to see what they are going to do in Season 4 after what happens in the finale. It feels like it’s going to go in a different direction. It’s exciting!
We will be giving a list of who we think is going to die in the next few days. Before we do, let us know who you think is going to die in the comments below!
The season 3 finale of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will air Tuesday at 9 p.m. EST on ABC.
