Episode 11 'Brand New Day' drops some staggering twists, including one that makes the tragic FitzSimmons love story even more complicated
Spoilers for 'Agents of SHIELD' Season 7 Episode 11 'Brand New Day'
Since the very beginning of 'Agents of SHIELD', Leo Fitz (Iain De Caestecker) and Jemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge) has faced hardship after hardship. And now after all of that suffering, it appears the show's writers have more in store for our beloved scientist couple.
In Season 7 Episode 11 'Brand New Day', Nathaniel Malick (Thomas E Sullivan) digs into Simmons' memories to find out where Fitz is, a question we ourselves have been asking a lot all season. He doesn't find an answer but what's really troubling is that in order to defend Fitz from Malick, Simmons wipes her own memory of him, revealing to Deke Shaw (Jeff Ward) that she has no idea who Fitz is.
Well, obviously, fans are heartbroken about it and they've been taking to the episode's discussion page on Reddit to discuss the terrible twist.
"'Fitz... Who's Fitz?' FitzSimmons is the most cursed couple in the MCU. I am not ready for this show to end," one fan wrote.
"They are the most cursed couple on TV in general. Who would have thought the dorky scientists on the Bus would become the emotional core of the show? They have certainly elevated the show," another fan wrote in response.
To make matters worse, the episode also talks about some bloodwork that pushed Fitz to remove Simmons' memory of her last days with him. And that's got everybody worried that Fitz might be dead, though the fans are still holding onto whatever hope they can find.
"I thought they were referencing Fitz having bloodwork that showed he was going to die. That's why it didn't matter if she remembered him or not, he wouldn't be there to save them. I should also say that I think that is a red herring and they are faking that conversation with the knowledge it will eventually be eavesdropped on. Fitz is alive and well and is going to save the f***ing day for our Agents in the final mission. Book it," a fan wrote.
"This is the waterlogged branch I am clinging to for dear life," another fan responded.
Ultimately, the show better provide a happy ending for Fitz and Simmons, even if they don't for anyone else because, after everything these two have been through, the fans can't bear to see them suffer anymore.
"They can't just undo what they've created. FitzSimmons more than any other MCU pairing deserves their happy ending with Deke as the weird relative who comes in unexpectedly," a fan declared.
As one fan put it, "Ancient monoliths, evil robots, time travel, space, and then time-traveling evil robots from space. I swear to f*** if they don't get a happy ending after all the s*** they went through, I am going to be even more depressed than I already am about the show ending."
'Agents of SHIELD' airs on Wednesdays at 10 pm ET on ABC.
