Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' earned itself a bit of good news last night as ABC officially picked up Coulson and the team for a second season, even opting for an 'Agent Carter' series as well, but we still have the Beginning of the End" looming next Tuesday. Get a first look at the 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' season 1 finale with the full set of photos and a clip from the hour!

There isn't much to see by the photos, which feature Coulson and Agent Triplett fighting their way through the desert and presumably the forces of Centipede/Hydra/Whatever, while Maye and Skye are similarly tasked with another infiltration. This week's earlier "Ragtag" left the group in a tight spot beforehand, however, as TVGuide's clip shows the Cybertek forces operating the various soldiers that confronted the team in Garrett's lair.

Here's how ABC describes next week's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' finale "Beginning of the End":

"Beginning of the End" - Dark secrets are revealed as Coulson and his team put everything on the line to stop Garrett and the forces of Hydra, on the explosive season finale of "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
