‘Agents Of SHIELD’ Pays Tribute To The Late Powers Boothe In Its Shocking Season Finale

Entertainment Writer

WARNING: Spoilers for the season finale of Agents Of SHIELD ahead. Be careful not to step on anything.

The latest season of Agents Of SHIELD came to a close on Tuesday, giving the show a proper sendoff from Tuesday nights as it heads to Friday with Inhumans and allowing it to revisit some old favorites. The main favorite that seemed to excite everybody online was the return of Ghost Rider. His entrance into the show at the start of this season was definitely an injection of life into the series that some folks might’ve given up on. It also allowed the series to introduce not only the Robbie Reyes version of the character but also the original version — with hints that we might get a Netflix series for the character.

But before we look at more cool Ghost Rider stuff, we need to get the sad bit out of the way. While it’s not a major tribute, it does matter when you lose a legend like Powers Boothe. I missed the chance to talk him up a bit when he initially passed away but the Agents Of SHIELD finale gives a second chance.

The show posted a short tribute to the late actor on screen during Tuesday’s finale, keeping it simple for a guy who probably deserved so much more. Southern Comfort, Extreme Prejudice, and Red Dawn alone are worth an entire half hour of the show. I’ll accept some small words on the screen, though.
