Re-live the highlights from the epic third season finale of 'Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'!

Take a look back at some of the best moments from this week’s episode of “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” with Agents of R.E.C.O.N.–Relive Every Crucial Objective Now!

This year’s season finale of “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” was a heartbreaker, with loose ends tied up and new questions raised. We finally learned who the fallen agent was, as Lincoln nobly sacrificed himself to save not just Daisy, but the entire world. We also said goodbye to Grant Ward for good this time as Hive met his end. Meanwhile, big changes are in store for Coulson’s team and the remainder of S.H.I.E.L.D. for next season as it appears Phil Coulson is no longer Director–and Daisy is on the run. Plus, what’s that Doctor Radcliffe’s working on in his lab? We’ll find out in season 4! But in the meantime, here are the most superlative moments from the season finale of “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.!”

Best Teamwork – S.H.I.E.L.D. Shuts Down Hive’s Missile Launch

The first part of the two-part finale featured one of the most finely-orchestrated heists S.H.I.E.L.D. has ever pulled off, even getting famously by-the-book General Talbot on board with skipping past the red tape and just getting down to business. First, Fitz and Talbot pulled off a bit of green screen wizardry to finagle missile launch kill codes from Secretary Thomas, who then passed them on to Director Coulson, who handed them to May and Lincoln, who were busy hacking into Hive’s missile launch system to override the launch. Meanwhile, Elena and Mack were busy rigging up the repurposed memory jogger to catch themselves a Hive. Then, while Lincoln used his powers to juice the machine and scramble Hive’s brains, May kicked the crap out of a bunch of primitives and rescued Doctor Radcliffe as Elena saved the hostages. And it all ended with them capturing Hive in a gel matrix suspension container. Go, Team Coulson!

The “I Almost Feel Bad For Him” Moment – Hive Gets His Brain Fried

Even though he was a bad, bad Inhuman and needed to be stopped, you almost–almost–had to feel bad for Hive when Lincoln, Mack, and Elena trapped him in the repurposed memory jogger. After having all the memories of the people he’d subsumed come to the surface all at once, Hive’s brains were scrambled and he emerged from the machine, well…more or less off his rocker. He looked so lost and disoriented, so traumatized by the memories hitting him left and right, that for a moment, it was like seeing the former ally Grant Ward again. And it was weird.

Worst Game Of Hot Potato Ever – Elena’s Cross

The writers really had fun messing with viewers for the finale. Having teased for a month that someone would die, there was foreshadowing aplenty throughout this week’s double episode, with the cross Daisy spied in her vision–along with the S.H.I.E.L.D. jacket–getting passed back and forth from character to character like a hot potato. First, Mack had the cross. After he dropped it, Fitz picked it up with the intention of returning it to Elena. Then it somehow ended up in Daisy’s hands. But Lincoln snagged it from Daisy and was the last to have it before sacrificing himself, becoming our fallen agent. Up to that point, the writers did a great job of keeping us guessing and making it appear as if every single team member we cared about was in real peril of dying.

Biggest Feels – Mack Forgives Daisy

When Daisy told Mack that he had almost been like a big brother, the heartbroken look in his eyes absolutely gutted us. Of all the relationships on the show, the Mack and Daisy partnership is one of the strongest, mostly because it’s platonic and pure, the sort of pseudo-sibling love that we’ve rarely had on the show. And when she almost killed him by crushing his chest, Coulson-style, it seemed the end of their friendship. So when Mack was the first agent to break protocol and visit Daisy in her containment unit, we knew that the big man would find it in his big heart to forgive her. And forgive her he did, knocking aside all her self-loathing to give her a huge hug as she finally broke down and cried it all out on his chest. If that didn’t give you warm and fuzzies, nothing will.

Best Fight Sequence – Daisy vs. Hive

Our Daisy has bloomed this season (see what I did there?), particularly in her physicality. As her Quake powers have leveled up, so have her fighting skills, and we’ve seen her put them to good use over the past few episodes, first with singlehandedly taking out a Kree warrior, then Mack. But she saved her best for last during the epic one-on-one fight with Hive. It was a great sequence, with Daisy flipping back and forth over crates and off equipment, using her powers to both blast Hive and propel herself around. It showcased just how in control of her powers she is now, and how unafraid she is to unleash them when need be. Plus, seeing her Hulk out right before she went to town on Hive? Awesome.

Toughest Customer – Elena Endures A Blowtorch Cauterization

While the episode teased us about who would die, for a while, it seemed like that would be Elena, a.k.a. Yo-Yo. The speedster took a bullet for Mack in a scene eerily reminiscent of Quicksilver’s sacrifice in “Avengers: Age of Ultron.” She pulled through after some quick thinking on Doctor Radcliffe’s part–but it wasn’t pretty.  Trapped in a storage room with primitive Inhumans climbing through the base’s ventilation shafts, they were without the means to staunch the bleeding or stabilize her. Until Doctor Radcliffe had the worst-best idea ever–use a blowtorch to cauterize the wound and stop the bleeding. Elena insisted Mack do it, and bless him, he did. It wasn’t pretty, and the sound of her screaming will haunt me for a while. But the feisty Elena is as tough as they come and she pulled through.

Best Frenemy – Doctor Radcliffe’s “Help”

Granted, Doctor Radcliffe is a weak-willed, weasely sort of guy, but you kind of couldn’t help but root for him when he acted as the voice of reason during his time with Hive, pointing out the insanity of the mission. When S.H.I.E.L.D. rescued him, he became a de facto part of their team, even helping them escape the supply room once he figured out the primitives’ eyes were sensitive to heat and infrared, spawning one of the most Radcliffe-like lines of the episode: “It’s not a hunch, it’s science. It’s a science hunch.” And it appears as if he’ll be sticking around next season, having taken a shine to FitzSimmons and even creating something that will either prove to be the best or worst idea ever. I guess we’ll have to wait until next season to find out.

The “I Literally Did Not See That Coming” Moment – Fitz’s Invisible Gun

When Fitz and May set out to spring Daisy from the containment unit on the Zephyr, which had been hijacked by Hive, they didn’t plan on Giyera attacking them and knocking May out, prompting me to shout, “Why won’t you just DIE ALREADY?!” at my TV and Giyera in general. But Fitz hurriedly bought some time for himself, convincing Giyera that he had hidden a weapon Giyera would never see on the ship, and if he killed Fitz, he’d never find it. Turns out, Fitz meant it quite literally as the formerly invisible gun in his hand turned visible just before Fitz pulled the trigger and put Giyera down once and for all. We, quite literally and figuratively, did not see that coming.

Best Bait And Switch – COULSON HOLOGRAM!!

Continuing with the trend of teasing character deaths, it looked like Coulson would sacrifice himself to save the rest of his team when he appeared on the Zephyr in front of Hive and it looked like he would try to take the Inhuman down himself. Hive thought the same thing as we did…until Coulson revealed he was just keeping Hive busy as a distraction while the rest of his team orchestrated a rescue of Daisy and heist of the warhead. It was a fantastic moment when Hive lunged at Coulson and Coulson, well…blinked, revealing he’d been a hologram all along and the real Coulson was with his team and safe.

Greatest Cameo – Shotgun Axe

Mack’s epic shotgun axe made its appearance during the all-out brawl between the agents and Hive’s inhuman primitives. When the time came to decide who would run and who would stay to fight them off, Mack was the first to volunteer. “I want to be in the fight. I built this damn thing for a reason,” he said, right before whipping out the shotgun axe, much to the delight of viewers everywhere. Two seconds later he was knocking heads and taking names. If Mack has taught us anything, it’s never bring a knife to a gun fight, but bring a shotgun axe to every fight.

Most Heartbreaking Parallel – Lincoln Sacrifices Himself Like Steve Rogers

Just as Elena channeled her inner Quicksilver, Lincoln and Daisy channeled Steve Rogers and Peggy Carter as they said their final goodbyes to one another. Just like Peggy, Daisy realized too late that Lincoln was piloting the plane away from Earth and sacrificing himself to save everyone else. And, just like the lovebirds of World War II, they both realized that they loved one another and had been foolish not to say it until that moment. It was absolutely heartbreaking, and ripped our hearts out all over again, especially considering we’re still reeling from Peggy’s funeral scene from “Captain America: Civil War.” A great parallel that left us inconsolable.

Most Poignant Heart To Heart – Lincoln And Hive

In the end, Lincoln and Hive went out of our world together, and at the very last moment, came to a mutual understanding. Hive finally had a moment of clarity as he realized for the first time in his entire long life the difference between humanity being worth saving and humanity needing to be saved. Meanwhile, Lincoln, who had never felt as if he belonged, found his own measure of inner peace as he realized that his purpose had always been to pilot the ship and save the people he loved. He died as a hero, and for the first time in his life, he actually felt he was one. The final shot of the two of them, together, floating side by side as they gazed down upon the earth was striking and symbolic: The one destined to destroy humanity and the one destined to save it, both finally finding peace just before they died. Beautiful. Brutal. And an image that will be seared in our minds for a while.
