At least, that’s what we assume happened to Agent Simmons when she was engulfed by that alien monolith in the closing moments of the season 2 finale of Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. Different dimension; another planet; it really doesn’t matter – the point is, poor Jemma (Elizabeth Henstridge) was gone for almost 6 months, and probably had to endure some unimaginable hardships to survive.
Next Tuesday’s installment, “”4,722 Hours,” promises to fill in some of the gaps and give us an insight into those hardships, but in this first sneak peek from the episode, we pick up right after Simmons disappeared from earth and re-emerged on the mysterious blue world. Ever the scientist, she calmly surveys the area, safe in the knowledge that Fitz will do everything he can to rescues her.
Which he does… y’know, eventually.
Tell us, where do you think Simmons was transported to? Why do you think she’s so desperate to return? Be sure to share your theories about next week’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. in the comments section below.
