Spoilers ahead for Episode 18 of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 5, called "All Roads Lead..."

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has spent most of Season 5 dealing with the destruction of the world. The good guys were stuck with the aftermath during their time in the future, and they've been doing everything within their power to stop it from happening since they got back to the present. Unfortunately, given the events of "All Roads Lead...", it seems that S.H.I.E.L.D. is setting up the destruction of the planet, and some of the problems that have already arisen may not actually be fixable anymore. Read on for three big ways Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. just set up the end of the world!

Ruby's Death

On the one hand, few characters (and probably not the vast majority of viewers) are going to be wrecked at the reality that Ruby was killed by Yo-Yo in the latest episode. She was a killer who aspired to become the "Destroyer of Worlds" and sliced off Yo-Yo's arms, and she was altogether too much of a wild card to roam free in S.H.I.E.L.D. Yo-Yo got her revenge by slitting Ruby's throat with Ruby's own circular scythe-like weapon, but it wasn't until after Ruby exposed herself to a whole bunch of gravitonium and manifested superpowers. While her powers didn't prevent her from dying, her death did seem to unleash a wave of gravitonium energy on all the people and land around her.

Yo-Yo said she killed the wannabe Destroyer of Worlds to try and save the world; by unleashing the gravitonium wave, Yo-Yo may have inadvertently damaged the planet in a way that it can be easily quaked or cracked or broken apart. Earth could be at its weakest point yet. By trying to prevent the terrible future, Yo-Yo may have helped guarantee that it happens.
