‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’: Who will be the “Fallen Agent”?


We know a character is going to die. We know when. But what we don’t know is who. It’s the latest and greatest trend of this TV season and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is jumping on it too. Instead of making it a shocker, shows have been letting us know that there will be a major death and they let us wait, speculate and dread the death of one of our beloved peeps. So who will be the one snuffed out during the “Fallen Agent” arc?

Let’s take a look at the contenders: 


Why? Because they are finally happy and in a Whedon show you can’t be happy for too long. If they kill them, they better go together but be prepared for riots ya’ll. FitzSimmons fans are a force that you don’t want to piss off.


I don’t think it will be Coulson but really at this point, the team could go on without him. I just really don’t want it to. His new creepy edge has really made the Director interesting to watch as he becomes more and more unpredictable.


Mack’s death would suck. He hasn’t been around as long as the rest, but his bond with team is strong. I worry that it’s going to be Mack and that it will be Daisy that delivers the final blow. It would shatter her. What worries me is that in the episode “Failed Experiments“, Daisy is very focused on “saving” Mack. Could he be the one she saw die in her vision? He is my second guess for the big death.


She is such an amazing character but with Daisy rising as a leader and Mack taking point on missions, she is becoming less vital. It would be so sad for May to go. It would devastate the team, particularly Coulson.

Yo-Yo or Joey

I think that killing one of the newbies would be too “safe” and sort of a cop out with all of this build-up. It seems like we were meant to think that it’s Yo-Yo because in Daisy’s vision, we see that cross floating in the air. My very unhappy guess is that Yo-Yo will get very hurt during the final confrontation with Hive. I think that she will try to zap Hive into a Kree ship or something and it will go wrong but I don’t think she is the ultimate casualty. And if they hurt Joey, I am going to punch stuff.


Even though he is trying really hard to die, I don’t think it will be Lincoln. We need to see what he can really do. He has been on the sideline for way too long. Sparky needs a chance to shine before we lose him!


This show has always felt like it was her story. I think it would be a huge mistake to kill her. She is the connection to the Inhuman story and there is no way that Coulson would recover. I see her rising up the ranks of S.H.I.E.L.D. and I believe in the later comics, she eventually becomes the Director.

Who do I think it will be?

That’s right folks. I think May is going to be killed off and it’s going to suck. It will be a huge blow to the team, but I think it will be May. We have seen her role on the team fade a little, not because she is losing her touch but because it feels like she is stepping down so that other team members can grow. More like a nurturer. I love you May. I hope I am wrong.
