‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ finally gave FitzSimmons fans exactly what they wanted for 3 years at the end of last season with an explosive kiss and the steamiest hook-up of all time. So, with season four returning tonight, can we expect more of that? In a word, YES, according to Elizabeth Henstridge and Iain De Caestecker!
Elizabeth Henstridge and Iain De Caestecker know that fans are ready to see Fitzsimmons in love and happy, but what’s exactly next for Leo and Jemma? “Well, full frontal probably,” Elizbeth joked to HollywoodLife.com before the premiere. “We are just giving people what they want! They want this! I don’t know why I am going down this path, but yes we are going to see them in this relationship.” Cheeky! Yes, fans sure do want this, considering how HOT their hook up was at the end of last season. Who wouldn’t want to see more of that!
Rather than jump on the sexy-time bandwagon though, Iain added that “they are going steady,” which is good too… I guess. Moving on…
“They got by that awkward time of telling each other how they feel but now the real work starts, now the real relationship works,” he said, including that he feels like they do still have that close bond they had in season one, which seems like forever ago.
However, we can assume there are some issues in the future. The official synopsis for the season previewed some troubles ahead. ABC released the following: “Fitz and Simmons have taken a big step forward in their relationship. But with Simmons’ new promotion as Special Advisor to the Director in Science and Technology, Fitz, as well as her former team members, finds it hard to confide in or trust her since she’s now the Director’s confidant.” So, maybe with Jason O’Mara joining as the new director, things will be shaken up inside and outside the organization?
What do you think? Are FitzSimmons end game in your mind? Do you hope they last? Let us know, and tune in to Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. premieres on Tuesday, Sept. 20 at 10PM on ABC.
