Agents of SHIELD: Beginning of the End – Season 1 Episode 22

Everything's set up and all that's left is to let the dominoes stall. It's the season finale and the confrontation between Garrett and Coulson is impending. Not all of the story lines from the series get wrapped up, but it's still a very entertaining episode and it encompasses a lot of things that make the Marvel Cinematic Universe great. Recap At the barbershop Coulson, Skye, May and Trip are in a firefight with Cybertek soldiers. May gets her hands on the Berserker staff and the team is able to fight their way out. Once they have a chance to regroup, Coulson informs them that they have a tracker on the plane but that they don't know where Fitz-Simmons are. He surmises that the best way to get them back is to find Garrett and take him down. To that end, they head straight to Cybertek. On the plane, Garrett's feeling the positive effects of the GH-325.

He is comforted to learn that his mentor can confirm Sawada's actual existence (which means he isn't crazy) but is confused when he tells him that the key to defeating Sawada is love. Hazama openly admits that he has little experience with love and consults some people to try to get his head around the concept (and ultimately fails). We also are shown some more details about Goto's failure to cope with his girlfriends death. We see how he came to have the phone and how those around him seemed to pity him even though there was little to be done to help or comfort him. The point of this is to let us know how bad things are going to get when Sawada kidnaps Goto and deletes the emails and contacts from his phone, essentially erasing his "girlfriend." Sawada reveals that he wants to turn Samurai Flamenco into a
