Spoilers for 'Agents of SHIELD' series finale Season 7 Episode 12 and Episode 13
'Agents of SHIELD' has finally come to an end after seven glorious seasons. And to the joy of fans everywhere, the show finally gave Leo Fitz (Iain De Caestecker) and Jemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge) the happy ending they so deserve.
After being MIA for most of the season, Fitz finally shows up in the finale's first part, Episode 12 'The End Is At Hand'. In the course of the finale, it's revealed that Fitz and Simmons spent years together building the time machine, finally getting to live out the happy life they always wanted and having a daughter. Once they finish wrapping up the Chronicom problem, Fitz and Simmons are shown retired and living happily with their child. After all the heartbreak that these two have gone to, there could be no better way to end their story and the fans are loving it. Just see what they've been saying on the episode's discussion page over on Reddit:
"I don’t know if I’ve ever felt for any character ever as much as I have with Fitz, at least in terms of television. Seeing him be with Simmons and his kid at the end makes me cry," one fan wrote. Another fan responded to the above post writing, "I cried as well. I've cared so much about those two and I was just so happy to see them get their happy ending."
"Seeing him finally be carefree was a much-needed balm for the soul after all the torment and pain that they've gone through," another fan commented. "So happy that Fitzsimmons got such a happy ending. It’s all I’ve ever wanted," yet another fan wrote. One very emotional fan declared, "I can't even begin to describe what this show has meant to me. What a send-off to this team. All these characters wrapped up beautifully. And Fitz and Simmons lived happily ever after. I'm tearing up hearing the SHIELD theme for the last time."
Fitz and Simmons have had a truly troublesome time, going through every possible obstacle the universe could throw at them. The show had teased earlier in the season that Fitz might be dead and that had gotten us really worried but we're glad that they went with this beautiful ending instead. 'Agents of SHIELD' aired its series finale on August 12 on ABC.
