SPOILER WARNING: This article contains major spoilers for "The Real Deal," the 100th episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Leo Fitz and Jemma Simmons just got hitched. In "The Real Deal," the 100th episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., the two star-crossed lovers got married in front of their friends.
Fitz and Simmons' teammates threw them a wedding at the end of the episode, after Coulson successfully closed a tear in space-time. They got married in a park, which had manifested when the fear dimension began to bleed into their world. The wedding happened as part of a promise Fitz made to Coulson earlier in the episode, after everyone learned Coulson was dying: "That other thing we talked about. I want you to promise me you'll do that no matter what happens," Coulson said. "Symbols are important. Institutions are important. People need things to believe in, Fitz, especially now. People need hope."
Seeing as he survived his ordeal with the rip in space-time, Coulson officiated the wedding. "I think we can all agree that to wait even one second to do this is playing with fire," he joked. They then proceeded into the vows.
"Fitz, I knew from the moment I saw you, from our first conversation about dielectric polarization that you'd be in my life for a long time, but I didn't know you'd be my life, my heart, my home," Simmons said. "We joined this team for adventures and got more than we had hoped. I can't wait for our next adventure: building a family together. My love for you grows deeper and always will no matter where the universe takes us next."
"I've been thinking about what to say. Just words don't really seem enough," Fitz shared. "I think that you are perfect, and I don't deserve you, Jemma. I don't deserve you, and I'm well aware that I'm the luckiest man on any planet." He then kissed the bride, as the rest of the team, Deke and Deathlok looked on.
Fitz and Simmons' wedding follows their engagement earlier this season, after they reunited for the first time in Season 5. Even before that, though, the two had a rather complicated relationship. Fitz spent some time pining over Simmons, which culminated in him revealing his feeling to her. However, she didn’t reciprocate — at least, not yet. Shortly after, a Kree monolith sent her to the planet Maveth. Fitz risked life and limb to save her and managed to pull her back through to Earth. They began dating soon after that; their relationship progressed quickly, and the two began looking for an apartment together.
The Aida LMD threw a wrench in that plan by abducting them all and putting them in the Framework, where she erased his memories of Simmons and began to date him. He regained those memories when he left the Framework, but Simmons was abducted and sent to the year 2091 without him almost immediately thereafter. However, he used a cryosleep device to take "the long way" to 2091, where he reunited with her and they became engaged. They returned to their proper time period just last episode.
The wedding also makes good on Yo-Yo actor Natalia Cordova-Buckley's promise of "something really special" for the 100th episode: "Something really special happens in that episode, so I think for me it was more than ‘aw, oh my god!’ It was more like ‘awww’ endearing and happy that the audience is going to get that moment,” she had teased at the time.
