We are only a few weeks away from the fifth season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. finally airing on ABC’s new Friday line-up. We now only got a few trailers and clips trying to prepare everyone for the new season but we are getting more information on upcoming episodes. After the two-hour premiere, we will have to wait a week until the show returns with its third episode, which SpoilerTV reveals to be titled A Life Spent. The episode’s description teases what will happen to one of our main characters and also highlights that the agent’s adventure into space will not be a fun ride.


“A Life Spent” – Daisy decides she will rescue Simmons – even if it means risking everything to do it, on “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” FRIDAY, DEC. 8 (9:01-10:01 p.m. EST), on The ABC Television Network, streaming and on demand.

“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” stars Clark Gregg as Agent Phil Coulson, Ming-Na Wen as Agent Melinda May, Chloe Bennet as Daisy Johnson, Iain De Caestecker as Agent Leo Fitz, Elizabeth Henstridge as Agent Jemma Simmons, Henry Simmons as Agent Alphonso “Mack” MacKenzie and Natalia Cordova-Buckley as Elena “Yo-Yo” Rodriguez.

Guest starring are Jeff Ward as Deke, Eve Harlow as Tess, Dominic Rains as Kasius, Florence Faivre as Sinara, Max E. Williams as Tye, Kaleti Williams as Zev, Pruitt Taylor Vince as Grill, Rya Kihlstedt as Basha, Tunisha Hubbard as Ava, Ciara Bravo as Abby and Doug Simpson as emissary.

”A Life Spent” was written by Nora Zuckerman & Lilla Zuckerman and directed by Kevin Hooks.

It seems that the various aliens teased in the trailer for the show may have gotten their hands on Simmons. There are a lot of open questions in regard to where they are, why they are there and what we can expect from this space opera. It almost sounds as if the only way for Daisy to rescue her friend is to make a sacrifice, which is something she had the displeasure of doing in the past. The biggest question is what exactly happened to Simmons and if her scientific knowledge may have gotten her caught. There also seems to be a revolt coming together on this space station going by the pictures released from the episode, which may have been sparked by Daisy’s actions in the episode.

We also know the titles for the fourth and fifth episode in season 5, which are A Life Earned and Rewind, respectively. The title of the fourth episode may hint at a direct continuation of the events of “A Life Spent”. It may tease whatever consequences will follow after she tries to save Simmons. There seems to be a reason why the agents were brought there. At the end of the last season, we saw Coulson tease some kind of “job” he had to take care of, which we may see slowly come together over the first few episodes. It will be interesting to see what “Rewind” means, as reports of people who caught a glimpse at the first few episodes that someone was left behind. After traveling through space, we may return to earth and figure out what has been happening on earth since they left.

What are your predictions for the upcoming episodes? What do you want to see happen?
