It’s been an uneasy couple of days for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. fans. Pilot season has caused large shakeups to happen in the world of television lately with major show cancellations being announced left and right. S.H.I.E.L.D. is one of the few shows left whose fate has yet to be announced despite the outcry for it to be renewed. With the finale just a couple of days away, the anticipation for a renewal or cancellation announcement grows as an announcement is expected in the next few days. And speaking of the finale, a report has surfaced about the season finale’s “Infinity War-level secrecy,” saying that some of the plot details are being kept from some cast members and crew alike.
According to a source, not everyone on the show may know how it all plays out at the end of the episode. Apparently, when they were filming key moments of the finale, it was a closed set with all non-essential people barred from it. That way nothing would leak and it was filmed with the utmost secrecy. The source also says that they believe there is “definitely” some misdirection going on with the promos for the episode.
It was revealed a few months ago that the showrunners have prepped the Season 5 finale as a potential series end should the show not be renewed. This report definitely adds credence to that. The Season 5 finale might be packed with so many monumental shifts that they absolutely don’t want any of it to leak out. Yes folks, this Friday’s episode may be the finale to end all MCU TV finales. Prepare your emotions!
