‘The last mission’: Space battles, super powers in trailer for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. series finale

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. comes to an end this week, and ABC has dropped a final trailer to set up the series finale — and it’s guaranteed to blow your mind and squeeze out some tears in the process.

The story this season has found the S.H.I.E.L.D. team bouncing across time, chasing high-tech aliens who are aiming to sabotage our time stream to take over the Earth for themselves. They’ve rewritten the MCU timeline, and the season finale kicks off with a seemingly unstoppable alien fleet in orbit taking out every S.H.I.E.L.D. base on the planet. All seems lost, which means it’s finally time for “the last mission.”

So what can we glean about the two-hour finale, airing Wednesday night on ABC? We get to see some major space battles, with the Zephyr facing off with a fleet of Chronicom ships; some super-powered fight scenes involving Yo-Yo’s super-speed and Daisy’s quake powers. There are also some glimpses of long-missing team member Fitz (Iain De Caestecker), who looks to finally make his return for the finale. Here’s hoping he brings some answers with him.

Check out the trailer below:

The framing really does a good job of setting the history and stakes here, as this team has become a makeshift family over the past seven years. Flashbacks interspersed with new footage is always fun. They’ve come so far, it’d really be a shame for the Chronicoms to destroy the world and erase that progress. Good luck, agents.
