Spoilers for 'Agents of SHIELD' Season 7 Episode 7 'The Totally Excellent Adventures of Mack and The D'

A brand new episode of 'Agents of SHIELD' Season 7 is here and it had some very enjoyable '80s madness. 'The Totally Excellent Adventures of Mack and The D' combined a whole lot of '80s tropes including touches of 'Doctor Who' and 'Back to the Future'. However, the fans are still a bit frustrated by the absence of Leo Fitz (Iain De Caestecker). A number of fans are demanding answers on the episode's Reddit discussion page and here's what they've been saying:

One fan wrote, "I SWEAR I THOUGHT AT THE END IT WOULD BE FITZ AND WHY WASN'T HE THERE! WHERE IS FITZ!?"

"Yea I was waiting for Fitz’s beautiful face, not Nathaniel the slimy hydra," another fan replied. In all fairness, not all the fans think Nathaniel Malick (Thomas E. Sullivan) is "slimy" though that doesn't mean they weren't upset. "I screamed 'FITZ?!!!!!' so loud and then got so upset (but then happy because he’s such an interesting character) seeing Nathaniel," a fan commented.

One fan mused, "To see Fitz or not to see Fitz? That is the question. But actually not Bc I want to see him now." 

While Fitz has been missing since the very start of the season, his time-displaced grandson Deke Shaw (Jeff Ward) has really come into his own. In Episode 7, we see a lot of growth from the character both emotionally and in terms of his skill as an agent.

"This has really been Deke’s season. Him checking up on Mack was so wholesome! With all the groceries and everything, he never stopped believing in his director. And I loved that he was always looking out for young Mack as well. He deserves all the lemons in the world," a fan wrote.

"Deke has a kind heart despite being born and raised in a post-apocalyptic hell-scape. His mother must have raised him right. I assume she takes after Simmons in this regard," another fan pointed out.

Well, we really are enjoying Deke's story so far this season but even that's not enough to make up for Fitz being gone. Seriously, where is Leo Fitz?

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