As you very well know, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is the very first MCU-set television show, essentially the progenitor of Marvel Television. As the longest-running MCU show, S.H.I.E.L.D. is about to reach a landmark 100 episodes, which is much cause for celebration. But rather than say, airing a clip episode or perhaps throwing a reunion, the always plot twist-heavy S.H.I.E.L.D. is looking to shake things up.

Per EW, Coulson actor Clark Gregg (who directed the most recently aired episode) had this to say about the upcoming episode:

“Fans who hope that a 100th episode will contain something that will be a cataclysmic event or a gigantically resonate event for their feels after 100 episodes will not be disappointed.” 

Right in “their feels,” Gregg promises. Such an event can point to two possibilities: a hugely destructive event, like the foreshadowed destruction of Earth, or perhaps something more intimate and brutal—let’s say for the sake of example, something dire between Fitz and Simmons. Or, you know, maybe even both.

Ever since the two-part premiere of season five showed off what remains of Earth in the future, speculation has run rampant on what was responsible for the destruction. The character of Deke is fully convinced that Quake/Daisy Johnson was the perpetrator, getting her to “earn” the title of the Destroyer of Worlds. But with the release of Avengers: Infinity War looming in the distance, there’s the possibility of Deke’s theory being a red herring, and our purple boy Thanos could very well be the instigator of the cataclysm.

Marvel TV head and executive producer Jeph Loeb had this to tell

“Look, this is not going to come as a surprise to anyone that’s ever seen a 100th episode, that there will be a significant event. That’s all I can tell you. They gotta get home from space!”

An interesting quotation, as some of us have suspected that they would have gotten out of space sooner. For those of you who haven’t kept track, S.H.I.E.L.D. just aired its 94th episode in the time of this writing, meaning that we have a way to go before the big 100. We know from a now-deleted tweet showing off a t-shirt filled with unrevealed episode titles that the following episodes are next: “Together Or Not At All”, “The Last Day”, “Best Laid Plans”, “Past Life” and “All The Comforts,” before 100th episode “The Real Deal” goes on the air. Based on that sequence of episode titles, there’s plenty of room to speculate on what will happen that will lead to this supposed “cataclysmic event.”

I just want them to leave Fitz-Simmons alone.

What do you think will happen in this 100th episode? Speculate away in the comments!
