With only four episodes remaining of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.‘s third season, ABC has finally released the full synopsis teasing the season finale. Earlier this month, we brought you a rather brief synopsis for the two-part finale, teasing the death of someone on the team. And while we’re still no closer to knowing who that’ll be with the full press release below, we do at least know which guest stars will be returning for the finale. (I hope you guys are ready for more Hellfire!)
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: “Absolution“/”Ascension” (5/17)
S.H.I.E.L.D. TAKES ON HIVE – WHO WILL LIVE, AND WHO WILL DIE? – ON THE MUST-SEE TWO HOUR SEASON FINALE OF ‘MARVEL’S AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.’ ON ABC
“Absolution”/”Ascension” – It’s a showdown a season in the making as S.H.I.E.L.D. takes on Hive, and when his master plan is finally revealed, the team must spring into action. Who will live, and who will die? Things heat up in the exciting two-hour season finale of “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” TUESDAY, MAY 17 (9:00-11:00 p.m. EDT) on the ABC Television Network.
“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” stars Clark Gregg as Director Phil Coulson, Ming-Na Wen as Agent Melinda May, Brett Dalton as Grant Ward, Chloe Bennet as Agent Daisy Johnson, Iain De Caestecker as Agent Leo Fitz, Elizabeth Henstridge as Agent Jemma Simmons, Nick Blood as Agent Lance Hunter, Adrianne Palicki as Agent Bobbi Morse, Henry Simmons as Agent Alphonso “Mack” MacKenzie and Luke Mitchell as Lincoln Campbell.
Guest starring in “Absolution” are Axl Whitehead as James, John Hannah as Holden Radcliffe, Natalie Cordova-Buckley as Elena “Yo-Yo” Rodriguez, Mark Dacascos as Giyera, Adrian Pasdar as Brigadier General Glenn Talbot, Derek Phillips as Agent O’Brien, Patrick John Hurley as General Andaz, Dorian Gregory as Undersecretary Walter Thomas and Hart Turner as Hudson.
Guest starring in “Ascension” are Axle Whitehead as James, John Hannah as Holden Radcliffe, Natalie Cordova-Buckley as Elena “Yo-Yo” Rodriquez, Mark Dacascos as Giyera, Lila Glaudini as Polly Hinton and Amanda Rea as Aida.
“Absolution” was written by Chris Dingess & Drew Z. Greenberg and directed by Billy Gierhart.
“Ascension” was written by Jed Whedon and directed by Kevin Tancharoen.
The synopsis once again teases the Fallen Agent subtitle ABC has attached to the series for the final few weeks of the season and we will know who it is by the time this comes to an end. While I do not think this indicates he is the one dying at the end, I find it very strange that Juan Pablo Raba is not listed to appear in either episode. Hopefully there is a good reason for this and not that he dies prior to the finale.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will air episode 3×19, “Failed Experiments“, tonight on ABC. Be sure to tune in. And then be sure to check back as we look at the possible death in the season finale in an upcoming One Shot!
