I think it's really more the guilt they're carrying. Her for leaving him behind and him for not bringing him back. In 3x11, they didn't really talk about her feelings for Will, they basically said that the obstacle was Will's death and how it weighed on them. Then in 3x17, he didn't want to push too fast with her because of everything with Will. It didn't really bother him. He was concerned whether she'd put it behind her yet or not.

And then she did it again when she brought up Milton!

And the problem I had with Simmons bringing up her "dead boyfriend" like that wasn't about whether she loved Will or had gotten over him (apparently she has). It wasn't really about whether Fitz was okay about it either, because even when they thought Will was still alive Fitz already demonstrated how extremely understanding he was about the situation.

The problem I had with it was that throughout 3A Simmons wasn't just upset about leaving Will behind, she was very upset about how the situation with Will hurt Fitz. She avoided telling Fitz about Will for as long as she could, only asking for his help because she thought she had no choice. And she was upset that Fitz, though helpful, basically shut down after she told him about Will. It bothered her enough that she blew up at Fitz about it, which lead to their first kiss and "we're cursed".

So even if Fitz is okay about Will and even if he's secure in his relationship with Jemma (and I would totally understand if he's not at all secure about it, considering how long he though she didn't feel the same way about him, and how new their relationship is now), it seems jarring to me that Jemma would bring up something that she thought hurt Fitz in the past in such a cavalier way.

This was just posted on the AOS twitter account,





Which probably means Fitzsimmons is NOT going to die.

Yeahhhh, but you NEVER really know with these people

FitzSimmons are quite low on my who-dies-list, though

There are many reasons why I think it isn't them, but on top of everything else the show has ended the last two seasons with horrible things happening to Fitz and Simmons specifically while the rest of the team made it through relatively unscathed. Killing one of them in the finale would be the most unoriginal choice for the show, especially now that they're finally a couple. So I think the finale will suggest for a time that one of them will die, playing into people's expectations about their "curse" and how things usually go for them in finales, but then take a sudden U-turn where someone unexpected dies instead.

I love that little scene we've got in the last episode. There was literally no reason for her to be in that server room with him but she was there to keep him company anyway. (I mean, he even said he wished Mack would be there for an extra pair of hands.) He's been spending all his time daisy-proofing the base!! And he knows!!! I love my sexually frustrated OTP. And then he had a minute of free time for her and then they got interrupted. They didn't brush May off just to make out or anything (and he didn't rush his work to Daisy-proof the base as well). Because they didn't let their work disagreement affect their relationship and they won't let their relationship get between their work as well. They are in fact two horny teenagers in a very mature relationship. I love them.

giddy in love Jemma

I think these two are gonna be fine for this finale. It's time for someone else. But also at the same time, if something bad does happen to these two in the finale, I wouldn't be surprised. Also, even if I'm confident that these two would survive the finale, I low key want some classic FS angst in the episodes, as long as they are resolved by the end of the finale

First the good:

I'm so happy that Fitz and Simmons finally got together this season. That the wait since "you're more than that" did eventually pay off, almost 2 years later.

And I'm glad that, overall for the season, the two had lots of good scenes together (if not always happy ones), particularly in the first half. I wasn't at all happy with the Will plotline or the portal, but at least they resulted in lots of big scenes with Fitz and Simmons. And I'm glad the show made their relationship such a big part of the story this year, and that it evolved in a way that they're together for the long haul, and something pretty major would have to happen to break them up now.

I'm also glad Fitz and Simmons made it out of the finale unharmed and together, and are still together six months later, presumably when S4 will start.

And I was happy that Fitz finally got some payback for his and Simmons' capture and torture when he outsmarted then killed Giyera. Fitz is often at the mercy of the bad guys being smaller and more engineer than field agent, I'm glad he was able to finally to turn the table on someone as dangerous as that. It would have been better if it had been Ward, but the fact that it was Giyera was still pretty satisfying.


Then the not so good:

I'm not so happy that the show spends so much time dwelling on the angst in their relationship, and then doesn't spend nearly enough time trying to resolve that angst in a satisfying way. It happened in S2 when Jemma left Fitz during his recovery and they had a lot of scenes about them being hurt by the situation, but never showed them actually reconciling their differences. The closest we got was the date scene in 3.02 where Fitz acknowledged he was not the nicest person during his recovery, but they never had a scene where they came to an understanding about what happened and forgave each other.

And now, similarly in S3, they never really resolved all the angst that built up in the first half of the season. They had scenes with Jemma's PTSD and difficulty readjusting to the world, which just disappeared without comment all of a sudden. Fitz's feelings of inadequacy compared with Will and Jemma's claim to love Will and indecisiveness about how to deal with the situation when she might have to choose between Fitz or Will never came up again after they found that Will was dead.

I'm also not happy that FitzSimmons didn't get a bigger moment together in the finale. It was nice that they were planning a vacation together, though I was hoping we would actually get to see a bit of it. Nor did we get any kissing, declarations of love or even a really significant hug. Also, they were split up and both in danger at various points in the ep, and though at times Jemma expressed concern for Fitz, they never had a big reunion moment when they did finally reconnect. I also expected that they would struggle more with getting split up and/or put in danger, especially given their "cursed" history. Fitz did warn about the "complications" of them being in a relationship, and surely one of those complications with two SHIELD agents is knowing the other is in danger.

I'm not really happy either with the six month time jump and what that means for FitzSimmons. I'm glad they're still together, but it means missing the rest of the team reacting to finding out they're together, or all the moments where they try to navigate the initial stages of their relationship. When we come back six months later, they'll already be well established and have worked out any of those initial issues.
