Agents of SHIELD: Elizabeth Henstridge talks FitzSimmons reunion, you’ll laugh, cry, ‘need to call your Mom’

This Friday’s episode of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.(ABC, 8/7c) will see Fitz and Simmons reunited after well over a year apart, perpetuating the “cursed” couple storyline. Now TVLine spoke with Elizabeth Henstridge about the “very ambitious” episode, the “new” Jemmas we will meet, Season 6’s split-up team, and more.

“I mean, as happy as a FitzSimmons episode can be,” Henstridge says of the “happy reunion.”

“They’re very relieved to be back together, but it’s never quite that simple with the two of them. So yeah, expect the usual trauma that comes with the pair of them sharing the screen.”

She discusses the inner demons inside of each of the characters which must be faced, before warning fans that this will be emotional.

“Oh, God, every emotion! You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll need to call your Mom…. As much as we know these characters and as long as they have been around, I think you learn something new about them. We get to see how they met, where they were both at and what they were thinking…. We also get to experience a darker side of Simmons we haven’t seen before, which was cool.

“It’s a very ambitious episode. Reading it, I loved it, but it was definitely a mountain to climb. But with Jesse Bochco as director, I knew we were in good hands. And we didit. We made something that we can be really proud of. As an actor, it’s a dream to play a few different versions of yourself, to discover things about [Jemma], especially after six years. I don’t know how the writers do it, but they do, and I love it.”

“Agents of SHIELD” season 6

Henstridge discussed briefly how they don’t see each other much on set as the team is split in two, using a run in with Agent May’s Ming-NaWen.

“You know, we thought Season 5 was it. We thought that was the end of the road and by the time we got to the last episode it was really difficult to film. But it felt like we all had to accept, ‘This is it.’ And then we got the sudden pick-up and Season 6 has had this, I don’t know, ‘vibe’ of, ‘What have we always wanted to do? Let’s just give it a go and see if it works!’ There’s a freedom and abandonment to that that is so courageous for the creators, because they had a formula that works. But it feels like they’ve gone, ‘Well, what about this…?’ It feels good and fresh and exciting. It even feels a bit dangerous!”

Speaking of Ming-Na, we now have confirmation of season 7 details, read HERE.

Actor Clark Gregg who plays Agent Phil Coulson told Den of Geek in an interview that Season 7 may be the last. “The announcement I read was, ‘Two more seasons, six and seven,’” said Gregg.

ABC’s boss Channing Dungey said it Agents of SHIELD had a long way ahead. “I hope that by moving it to summer, where our live-same-day ratings are less important, it might be able to continue for longer,” he told THR when explaining why it was pushed to a different release date.
