8 Reasons We're Shipping FitzSimmons

By Lisa Weseman | Oct 9th, 2014

After weeks of only seeing sad, heartbroken Fitz's imaginary Jemma, we finally got to see the real Simmons in action this week in "Making Friends and Influencing People." We loved seeing Simmons kick butt in deep cover as a Hydra agent, but we won't be fully satisifed until we see our favorite geniuses reunited! At this point, there are only two possible reasons you aren't rooting for FitzSimmons: you have a heart made of stone or you're Hydra.

 

1) They have the best couple name.

Forget "Brangelina." Fitz and Simmons spawned "FitzSimmons," a portmanteau of such cleverness and beauty, we can't help but hashtag it. #FitzSimmons

2) They understand each other and the importance of a good sandwich.

Simmons knows just what Fitz needs as he heads out on his first dangerous mission: prosciutto and buffalo mozzarella with a hint of pesto aioli. #FitzSandwich anyone?

3) Though they are lab rats, they both secretly love to kick ass.

After their first dangerous mission in the field, Fitz humblebragges that he saved Ward's life, and Simmons gushes that she shot a superior officer in the chest.

4) They're Actually Quite Sweet

They bicker. They banter. BUT every now and then, they say something impossibly sweet to one another.

5) Their brilliance shines brightest when they work together.

She's a genius bio-chemist and he's a genius engineer, and when they work together, magic happens.

6) Sometimes they don't need words.

For all their brainy banter, it's the quiet moments that mean the most.

7) They love nerding out together, even in the face of certain death.

Trapped at the bottom of the sea with no way to escape, Fitz and Simmons discuss the afterlife and the first law of thermodynamics. Of course.

 8) Everything About This Moment

Fitz tells Simmons he never had the courage to tell how he really feels about her, so he's going to show her. She begs him not to sacrifice himself, but the look on his face shows he's prepared to die for her. His face, her tears, that hug, her scream! There are only two possible reasons you aren't shipping FitzSimmons after watching this moment: you have a heart made of stone or you're Hydra.
