This whole regret thing is related to feeling painless. Jemma’s biggest pain is when Fitz is in trouble so I’m thinking that Jemma’s regret was dragging Fitz into the field with her. Everything bad that’s happened to him came after that and she wouldn’t want that for him. As a result she dies in FZZT.
Alternatively, Fitz’ earliest pain is related to his father so I’m thinking that Fitz’ regret has something to do with that. Which means that he never meets Simmons in the first place.
Because of this paradox, having never met in the framework due to Fitz’ regret, Jemma’s can’t happen so once she is transported in and her regret integrated into the system, she’s shows up as herself and can work towards saving everyone.
Of course along the way she will see what Fitz has done with his life without her and it will break her heart, along with the fact that he’s seeing someone else (10 bucks it’s AIDA or Agnes because she likes him and she programmed the thing, also the idea of Fitz in love with a robot is great).
Daisy seems to know why she’s in there, her first thought was Lincoln not *shivers* Ward. I say that both Ward and “Skye” (she definitely goes by that in the framework, the hair is long again too - and I doubt she has her powers but we’ll see) work for HYDRA so she plays along to get info and try to find Simmons.
Daisy and Simmons meet up and solve the puzzle and save their team (throw in Lincoln or Trip somewhere in here too that’d be great), maybe with Radcliffe’s help now that AIDA has turned against him. Then we get a lovely reunion scene where they rush into wherever the team is being held, defeat the russian dude and save everyone.
But WAIT it’s not done because Fitz realizes whats happened and is so scared of never having met her that we get a lovely fitzsimmons scene (or two *wink wink* nudge nudge*)(or three - #proposal? I mean it’s been mentioned now…). Coulson and May and Mack, etc. have similar realizations about thier regrets as well - LMD!May said today that the regrets are what make us human and make us who we are.
I’ve been fuckin’ around while you’ve been savin’ the world. I’ve been out of my mind and I’ve been dreamin’ things, and schemin’ things. I’ve been smokin’ the poison. You’ve been slingin’ your anecdotes. I’ve been fuckin’ around while you were saving the world from nothing.
In the end, things will never go our way. In the end, things never go. So take it in, don’t hold your breath. The bottom’s all I’ve found. We can’t get higher than we get on the long way down.
Burning night in my eyes, blinding me from the truth. If there’s a shadow in me, the dark is a tidal wave inside of you. Taking shots at communion. Getting drunk on your antidote. I’ll save you a seat next to me down below.
