Leopold Fitz's (Iain De Caestecker) location might have just been spilled in 'Adapt or Die'. The previous episode saw Jenna Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge) suffer memory issues and seeks help from Enoch who fits in a memory suppression device in her brain. Deke (Jeff Ward) notices this, knocks Enoch out, and questions Simmons who reveals a clue of where Fitz might be.
"He was fixing my memory so we can fix the ship," she explained. "You cannot imagine how impossible it was to track the Chronicoms through time, but Fitz and I found a place where all their moves could be observed. To guide us, Fitz stayed there. He is completely exposed and they will kill him if they find him, so no one can know his location." However, she admitted she knew the location when says, "But you know." She also tells Deke, "I designed a biological implant to suppress my memories. I named her Diana. She's adorable and we're inseparable, literally."
However, Deke realized that this would mean forgetting where Fitz would be. "I'm worried I might. Diana is acting up, and I'm forgetting the things I'm supposed to know and, more dangerously, I'm remembering the things I'm not," says Simmons in a matter-of-fact manner. Meanwhile, a conscious Enoch begins work on the implant while also accepting Deke's apology after he knocks him out. She also makes Deke promise he won't reveal the secret. While Deke can be counted on, how long before the team starts suspecting something?
For those who caught Season 6, Fitz's location was a secret since the finale. All that the team knows was no one could even know where he was and Simmons never outlined the details. While an exact location was not given, what we do know if Fitz is out there and a whiff of his whereabouts would lead the Chronicoms to neutralize him.
