Spoilers for 'Agents of SHIELD' Season 7 Episode 11 'Brand New Day'.
'Agents of SHIELD' Season 7 has gotten really bleak with the finale coming soon and the Chronicoms appearing to have the upper hand. Hence, fans are all really grateful that Episode 11 'Brand New Day' took some time to give us a few light yet touching interactions between Alphonso "Mack" Mackenzie (Henry Simmons), Daisy Johnson (Chloe Bennet), and Daniel Sousa (Enver Gjokaj).
In the episode, Mack finally finds out that Daisy has feelings for Sousa and his reaction is priceless. Taking on his gruff older brother role, Mack has a conversation with Sousa about the veteran agent's "intentions" towards Daisy and the fan loved it. Many of the fans have taken to the episode's discussion page on Reddit to talk about how sweet it was seeing Mack threaten Sousa with futuristic technology and the wrath of SHIELD if he ever breaks Daisy's heart.
"I think the talk that Sousa and Mack had was great. I always saw Mack as sort of the older brother figure of the group and him giving the 'dating/better not hurt her' talk was a nice touch. The icing on the cake was when he tried to threaten him with the 'technology' that Sousa doesn't know about. I will say this though, he is being a true bro by telling Sousa that Daisy that she has feelings for Sousa," one fan wrote. "Everyone deserves a stand-up person like Sousa. Also, everyone deserves Mack’s 'hurt my friend and you die' speech," another fan noted.
Mack and Daisy also had a very heartwarming moment where they talked about the possibility of the team splitting up after this final mission is over. As sad as it was, that moment really resonated well with the audience. "Mack being the protective older brother to Daisy by giving Sousa the talk, but also joking with him. Love their dynamic! Also, Daisy calling Simmons her sister was amazing. The show really does an amazing job of highlighting the 'found family', especially with Daisy and Mack’s speech about the future. I honestly started tearing up then," a fan commented.
"I know all the little character interaction moments of Mack & Daisy, Mack & Sousa, Daisy & Sousa, May & Coulson weren't really, like, plot-related. But god I loved and needed them so much. I needed to see our team smile at and tease each other," yet another fan wrote. They even managed to plug in a scene where Mack and Sousa joke around about Daisy's superhero name "Quake". It was a really light moment but it was exactly the kind of wholesomeness we needed so close to the end.
"Mack cracking up at Quake with Sousa was the most wholesome thing that episode. It seemed like Henry Simmons was genuinely laughing," a fan wrote. One fan declared "Mack, Daisy, and Sousa in the quinjet was everything" adding. "I can’t believe we’ve finally reached the end. One more week until it’s all over. I’m glad to have made the journey with all of you." 'Agents of SHIELD' Season 7 airs on Wednesdays at 10 pm ET on ABC.
