'Agents of SHIELD' Season 7 Finale: Will the show end with another 'Spy's Goodbye'? Fans think so
With the massively popular Marvel Cinematic Universe show 'Agents of SHIELD' set to end with two-part Season 7 finale, speculations are raging online about how the final story will go. And one of the leading fan theories suggests that the series will end with yet another "Spy's Goodbye" scene like in the Season 3 episode 'Parting Shot'.
In that episode, after agents Bobbi Morse (Adrianne Palicki) and Lance Hunter (Nick Blood) are disavowed, the other agents gather in a bar to bid them farewell. They all sit at different booths and share one last shot, giving the episode its name and giving the audience a ton of feels.
Since this is the series finale, fans have been speculating that the upcoming episodes will end with a similar "Spy's Goodbye" scene for a while and those speculations became stronger after the promo for the finale was released. Discussing the promo on Reddit, fans suggested that such an emotional moment is exactly the kind of thing the show's writers would drop in the finale.
One sad fan wrote, "I’m getting Spy’s Goodbye vibes from the beginning part so I’m going to have a couple more boxes of tissues by my side :(".
Another fan wrote, "F***, I'm going to be right, aren't I? They're ending off the show with one last Spy's Goodbye and I'm going to be a blubbering mess by the end of it. :'(".
These speculations have also made it onto a prediction thread in the same subreddit where fans are swapping theories about the upcoming finale. "The team manages to save the day and returns to their original timeline where we'll get one last Spy's goodbye and possibly a montage on where everybody's headed off to," one fan theorized.
Another fan wrote, "All the major cameos from the past will take place in the bar, and turn into a giant spy’s goodbye. This could happen before or after the main plot is resolved. Any and all cameos could happen here, including Grant Ward. I think it’s going to come down to budget and who was available. But we will see faces from even dead characters. Either the timeline has changed their fates, or someone like Fitz has recruited them."
