Elizabeth Henstridge, Iain DeCaestecker, and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. writers share their thoughts on the fate of FitzSimmons, and other spacey ships.

Everyone knows that the course of true love never did run smooth on television, but Fitz and Simmons’ uniquely tortured path to romance might be one for the record books. As Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. enters its fifth season, the pair has been divided by everything from the mundanities of hesitation and the painful guilt of unbalanced scales, to unwilling relocation to a hell-planet and robot body-swapping.

(And let’s not even mention the space-boyfriend.)

In the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 5 premiere, the trauma continues. Fitz (Iain DeCaestecker) has been left behind on Earth, while Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge) and the rest of the team are catapulted into a satellite colony 90 years in the future. Suffice to say, by this point, even the characters have noticed that they seem to be prey to a cosmic grudge.

“You guys are constantly torn apart,” Daisy observes to Simmons in the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 5 premiere.

“Cursed, as he would say,” Simmons replies, though she tries to reject the idea herself.

But with events spiraling ever more wildly out of control (Simmons is now the drone-like servitor of an eccentric Kree overlord, for crying out loud!) we were wondering about that curse ourselves. So we went right to the source to see if the minds behind Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. have actually hexed these two star-crossed scientists to eternal misery.

“No,” insist showrunners Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen. “If you stick through the season,” Tancharoen adds, “You will be…”

“Iain’s still on the show,” Whedon interjects. “It’ll be fine!”

Elizabeth Henstridge is just as vehemently optimistic about the couple’s prospects.

“NO!” she says, when asked if she believes that FitzSimmons are cursed. “I don’t! No, I don’t. I think they’re members of S.H.I.E.L.D., is what they are.”

“Not at all,” Ming-Na agrees, cracking “It’s a smooth romance, through and through!”

“I mean, romances in real life are not plain sailing,” Henstridge notes.

Her on-screen love Iain DeCaestecker also insists that he “definitely” does not believe in the curse.

“They’ve faced some real tough shit,” he says. “But no, I think the reason they’re not cursed is because often, through it all, they manage to find a way through it together. And they don’t work as well seperately as they to do together — they kind of complete each other when they’re together. That sounds really cheesy doesn’t it!” he laughs.

Chloe Bennet and Clark Gregg each describe themselves as ardent FitzSimmons shippers (“The universe just tortures people like me,” Gregg says) and encourage fans to look to the future.

“They don’t know what’s happening this season, do they!” Bennet teases of despairing fans. “Listen, friction creates growth, so they are just going to become even better. So the more that they go through, the stronger of a couple [they’re going to be].”

With the “Agents of SHIELD” midseason finale right around the corner, we’re bracing for some king of huge twist or devastating revelation to hit the team, but the two people we’re most worried about are SHIELD’s cutest scientific pairing, Fitz (Ian de Caestecker) and Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge).

After struggling for so long to find a way to be together, we were a little nervous that the midseason finale might break them up somehow.

Henstridge and de Caestecker quickly assuaged those doubts, reassuring us that “FitzSimmons” would’t be facing any obstacles they couldn’t handle in the near future.

“They’re ultimately on the same side, always,” Henstridge says. “It’s going to be a dynamic that continues… How much can they tell each other and what secrets they’re keeping.”

“Things will never be smooth sailing for them, I’m sure,” de Caestecker says. “I think in general, just being in that early stage of their relationship — while simultaneously both working for the most secretive spy organization in the world — there’s always going to be hiccups for them. They would never keep secrets from each other, but they’ve both had to, because of the way their careers are progressing. There would have to be something pretty extreme to cause a major rift between them.”

Even if there are hiccups on the way for Fitz and Simmons, we don’t expect Aida (Mallory Jansen) or Ghost Rider (Gabriel Luna) — or even evil Uncle Eli (Jose Zuniga) — to throw any curveballs they can’t recover from… No matter what secrets they have to keep from one another.

“I think they want to be together more than they hate the secrets,” Henstridge says. “I’d never really thought of it, but I like that [Simmons] wasn’t like, ‘Ugh, how could you not tell me [about Aida], because she’s a hot girl?!’ It was more like, ‘This is super cool! How could you not let me in on this?’ There’s never an issue… [that] either of them is going to cheat on the other one.”

Ultimately, Fitz and Simmons’ trust in each other — and their total lack of any entanglements resembling a love triangle — is one of our favorite things about them, as scientific partners and a romantic couple. Thanks to Henstridge and De Caestecker’s encouraging comments, we’ve got faith “FitzSimmons” can weather whatever storm is heading their way.

“Agents of SHIELD” airs Tuesdays at 10 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.

Iain De Caestecker has SERIOUSLY grown up since playing the original Adam Barlow in Corrie

Coronation Street fans may remember when young Adam Barlow appeared on the cobbles, in 2001.

Ken Barlow’s daughter Susan brought him for a visit, and it was dramatically revealed then that Adam was actually the son of Mike Baldwin from when he was married to Susan.

Shortly after this bombshell was dropped, Susan was tragically killed in a car crash.

Mike took Adam in for a while before he then went to boarding school in Scotland.

Scottish actor Iain De Caestecker played the young Barlow.

Then, Sam Robertson took over the role in 2004 when Adam arrived back on the street after taking his A-levels.

While last week Coronation Street viewers left swooning after ‘hottie’ Adam Barlow made ANOTHER triumphant return to the street, original ‘Adam’ has also REALLY grown up.

Now 28, Iain De Caestecker has gone on to be extremely successful.

He also played Christina Hendrick’s son, Bones, in film Lost River, directed by Ryan Gosling.

The film is about single mother is swept into a dark underworld.

Her teenage son discovers a road that leads him to a secret underwater town.

He also appeared in the film Filth, with James McAvoy.

He is now known for playing Leo Fitz in action series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
