Spoilers for 'Agents of SHIELD' Season 7 Episode 3 'Alien Commies From The Future!'

After a kickass adventure in the 1930s, 'Agents of SHIELD' Season 7 has moved on to its next stop on the timestream. Episode 3 'Alien Commies From The Future!' featured the team heading to the 1950s to continue their mission against the Chronicoms. The episode had a lot of great moments, perhaps the best of which was the reintroduction of Agent Daniel Sousa (Enver Gjokaj) from 'Agent Carter'. The fans loved seeing Sousa on screen again and even though the promo for the next episode teases that Sousa's life might be under threat, the fans are theorizing that the team might find a way to save them.

For those who don't know, Gjokaj also played Officer Saunders in 'Avengers', a young cop who dies during the Battle of New York. And that is pretty important to this fan theory. "What if they fake Sousa's death and he joins SHIELD in the time travel adventure? They could stop at the battle of New York and have Sousa go undercover as a cop," one fan wrote on the episode's Reddit discussion page. "In the eyes of the people from the past, Sousa died but actually he is in the future living with SHIELD under a new identity." "Oh yeah! Because Enver was a cop in Avengers," another fan replied. "That’d make so much sense!"

One fan wrote in desperation, "Please tell me that they're going to bring Sousa with them into the future, please." "It will be pure f***ing poetry if Steve Rogers goes back to the '40s to be with Peggy while Daniel Sousa gets abducted to the future to preserve the timeline," another fan wrote.

"If they save Sousa while preserving the timeline and he becomes a main cast member for the rest of the season I would not complain," yet another fan commented. "Great episode tho, absolutely loving this season. It's just a fun season." Do you think Sousa should be taken into the future? Perhaps he doesn't become a permanent addition but what if he's just around long enough to make it to the Battle of New York? Let us know what you think in the comments below.

'Agents of SHIELD' Season 7 airs new episodes on Wednesdays at 10 pm ET on ABC.
