With only four episodes left til the season finale, ABC is promising a major death on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. In an arc they're calling "Fallen Agent," ABC has announced that S.H.I.E.L.D.'s mission to take down Hive will have deadly consequences. Most recently, Daisy Johnson was subverted by Hive, turning against her teammates, ultimately using her powers to bring down S.H.I.E.L.D.'s secret headquarters.
Of course, ABC is mum on whose head is on the chopping block, but the official episode description for "Absolution & Ascension", the two-hour season finale, reads "#FallenAgent is revealed! It’s a showdown a season in the making as the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. try to thwart Hive’s master plan and take him down once and for all. 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."
"Absolution & Ascension" airs May 17 on ABC.
