Agents of SHIELD Season 5: Will Mack Really Leave the Team?

He wasn't part of the first season of Marvel's Agents of SHIELD, but Alphonso 'Mack' Mackenzie has quickly become a fan favorite since his debut in season two. Henry Simmons's turn as the reluctant mechanic-turned-shotgun axe-wielding badass has been fun to watch and at this point in the series, he really does get the best lines. But one of those lines in the fifth season premiere includes him complaining about all of the crap they've been through lately and how he's done with it. But will he quit SHIELD?


Even though they're in the future and in a pretty post-apocalyptic hell, the question had to be asked if Mack was really going to leave the team. Executive producer Jed Whedon told

I think he's pretty fed up, but they're all pretty close, they all like each other quite a bit, so it's hard to leave your friends behind. One of the things that's fun for us this year is we really are just a family. At the end last year, Daisy says 'We all go down together,' and now we're putting that to the test.

Marvel's Agents of SHIELD season five airs Fridays at 9 p.m. on ABC.
