A synopsis has been released for the penultimate episode of what may be the finale chapter of Marvel's Agents of SHIELD. And while the synopsis doesn't really give away too much… read that as 'anything'… it does make one thing clear, the fact that ABC has not given the series a renewal and all of the shows cast and crew talking about how they are treating the season finale as a potential series finale makes it feel like the stakes have been raised. If the show is writing like there is not tomorrow, then anything could happen. They could go ahead and blow up the Earth and prove Fitz (Iain de Caestecker) right that time can't be changed. They could kill all the characters off. They could bring back Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and have him standing over an operating table as Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) wakes up from the Tahiti program for the first time and all five seasons were a dream. Or the entire show could take a drastic right turn after what happens in Marvel's Avengers: Infinity War just like they did after Captain America: the Winter Soldier…
The point being that just about anything can happen because Marvel's Agents of SHIELD may be down to their final four episodes… And here is what they're telling us now is going to happen in episode 21:
