Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has officially entered the run-in to its big season 3 finale with a collection of episodes called 'Fallen Agent'.

Those who have been watching the show this season will know that the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is driving towards a major character death, teased in both Daisy's vision of the future and a flash forward scene earlier in the season. Which of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s beloved agents will be meeting their maker is going to be the big question as the show's third season draws to a close, and while everyone might have their suspicions, Marvel are keeping tight-lipped on the details.

However, we do at least now have a bit of an idea on the path we'll be taking to this climactic moment, because ABC has released the plot titles and descriptions for the big 'Fallen Agent' arc.

TUESDAY, MAY 3 (9:00 PM ET/PT on ABC) – "Failed Experiments"

But not everyone will survive the epic battle in the must-see Season 3 finale. Tune-in to find out who will live and who will die.
Closing quote

The show has been flirting with the themes of Captain America: Civil War, most recently in the episode Watchdogs in which Mack and Daisy butted ideological heads over the way Inhumans should wield their powers. Judging by the description of 'Emancipation', it looks like we'll soon see those themes coming at the show in the opposite direction, with the team struggling to deal with the fallout from the MCU's biggest showdown to date.

As for the finale, we're hoping they don't pull a stunt like The Walking Dead's recent season-ender, but we're struggling to think of a solution that we would be happy with. There really aren't too many disposable characters on the S.H.I.E.L.D. team, so it's looking like whichever name is pulled from the hat, the 2 hour finale is going to be a painful experience. Just pray to god they don't take either of FitzSimmons away from us. We've already lost Bobbi and Lance, we don't need to lose the show's other power couple too.
