How has the time that has passed for Simmons changed her?

“We had time,” Simmons said when she took the others on the newly-outfitted jet. She had a new look, and she already seemed a bit different in the few minutes at the end of the finale. But will there be any other differences from the Simmons the others had just seen that day?

Where — and when — is Fitz?

Fitz was MIA when the others reunited with Simmons. “I don’t know,” she said asked where he is. “I can’t know.” How long will it take before the audience is made aware of his location?

What will it take to stop the Chronicoms from establishing Chronyca-3 on Earth?

S.H.I.E.L.D. has lost members while dealing with other threats in the past — they did just lose Davis, too, in the fight against Izel — and with this being the final season, it wouldn’t be surprising if it includes some sort of sacrifice from the team. After all, it’s probably too much to ask that everyone gets a happy ending, especially from a Marvel property.

What will LMD Coulson be like?

After a season of dealing with Sarge, who had Coulson’s face but was nothing like him, this new Coulson should be a walk in the park, whatever he’s like, right? But just because the LMD has Coulson’s memories doesn’t mean he’ll be Coulson. And it’ll have to be weird that the LMD knows everything that Coulson missed. But what’s most important is that they’ll have Coulson’s knowledge of S.H.I.E.L.D.

How will the others react to LMD Coulson?

We can assume that May (Ming-Na Wen) will probably have the hardest time around the LMD of the man she loves. And while Mack (Henry Simmons) was hesitant to activate the LMD, Simmons admitted she missed him, and Daisy (Chloe Bennet) was eager to have him back, that doesn’t mean that’ll be indicative of their reactions to and how they act around this Coulson once he’s been up and running.

How long will it take May to recover?

“She’ll be fine,” Simmons said when she joined the others in the temple, despite May’s stab wounds. We can assume that she’s right, so we’re not worried she won’t survive, but we also don’t know quite what kind of equipment will be used on her. Will May be ready to fight soon into the season, or will she need some time to heal?

How long will it be this time before Fitz and Simmons are reunited?

Fans probably shouldn’t have been surprised that the season ended with the couple separated; just look at the show’s history. But at least they’re in communication, though we do have to hope that with Season 7 being the last that the physical separation doesn’t last for long.

The Season 6 finale of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. killed off another one of Clark Gregg’s characters, but don’t worry — the final moments also brought him back as the beloved Coulson (albeit as an LMD).

Just after the team managed to stop Sarge and Izel, Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge) showed up in the newly-outfitted, now-time machine Zephyr and whisked the others away to 1930s New York. But while one important member was missing — Fitz (Iain de Caestecker) — she informed them that they’d be getting one back. They’d need him, too, with the Chronicoms planning to establish Chronyca-3 on Earth. (Believing only S.H.I.E.L.D. could stop them, the Chronicoms sent hunters to destroy S.H.I.E.L.D. and everyone within it.)

“We have a problem that Fitz and I could not solve, but Enoch provided a possible solution,” she explained. The Chronicom hunters had Fury’s black box and centuries of anthropological research to pull from, meaning, “our team needs an expert in S.H.I.E.L.D. history to have a chance of stopping them, to even know what the hunters might target.”

They had a Coulson LMD, with all of his own memories, the knowledge of what he’d missed, and Chronicom hardware.
