Agents of SHIELD Season 5: What Happened to Fitz When the Others Vanished

Last week on Marvel's Agents of SHIELD, we saw the surprise return of Leo Fitz (Iain De Caestecker) at the end of the episode. And as surprising as his appearance was, it has left a few questions: why wasn't he sent to the future with the rest of the team, what had he been up to since they were taken, and the big one… how did he get there? The clip below gives us the impression that we'll be getting answers to some of those right away.


The clips shows us the Fitz has been in custody for six months and whoever is holding him is fed up that he doesn't have answers on where his teammates went. He offers up that they were abducted by aliens… sort of true. Then, when they are about to tossing him into a deep, dark hole somewhere… they're surprised to find that his lawyer is there. And then we get to see that his lawyer is actually Lance Hunter (Nick Blood), former SHIELD agent who got disavowed at the end of season three. It was more of a save face move than SHIELD not wanting him or Bobbi Morse around anymore.

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