I assumed the latter, but they should have at least mention it.

It was mildly surprising that the machine Aida used wasn't a plot point at the end at all.  With four candidates to use it, it just got forgotten as well...or was it destroyed on the oil rig?

It was destroyed in the oil rig. I though maybe Fitz could build a new one. But I realized that will never happen when they mentioned that Aida's body was made with the darkness (i.e. different dimension materials) from where the Darkhold comes. So anybody else would have been the same. + not much time to do all that anyway.

It was destroyed with the oil rig unless the Russian loaded it on to his submarine.    Fitz did design it, so if the writers had wanted to use it, they could have had them cobble together a new one some how.

I also thought the ending felt a bit rushed.  Still, I liked it and can't wait for next season.  Dying to know where Coulson is.

Ditto. I also wonder if this is going to intro S.W.O.R.D. and/or Abigail Brand into the MCU.

Do they have access to SWORD and Brand? I always saw her as more of an X-Men auxiliary.

 My hope for season 5 is to continue on the way they've been, but maybe a tiny bit more tying into the main movie universe with some referencing. I don't need a lot, but it would be nice if SHIELD felt like it belonged to something...

Decent finale to a solid arc.  Theyve really found their stride for the most part.  

But probably not going to watch next season.  The ham handed political references kept pulling me out of the story.  I assume its only going to get worse next season since a lot of this season was presumably planned before before November.

Fair point, but Inhumans are the new mutants (Puns!), so a form of SWORD is feasible in the MCU. I have a strong feeling this is going to tie in to the new Inhumans show and possibly we'll have SHIELD S5 intro the MCU to Blackbolt and the "royals" before their new show airs.

I believe Inhumans is premiering before Agents of Shield season 5.

Yup. It's getting that theatrical debut even. That was a terrible theory on my part. :/

It's been confirmed by the showrunners that they don;t have the rights to SWORD and that its not a version of SWORD.

Inhumans in fall, Shield in January, but Shield is getting 22 eps. It's weird.

Do you have a link? I did a Google search and the closest I could come up with was this article with a misleading title. It's based on a series of tweets by a VFX supervisor on AoS, and in one of his final tweets he states, "I will say this. I truly have no idea who this group is. The writers have said nothing to anyone."

I did find an IGN interview and an EW interview with he showrunners and in neither interview did they mention S.W.O.R.D. one way or the other.  :/

I can try and dig it up, it was in one of the million post finale interviews. But the simple reason is that SWORD originated in an X-men comic, and Fox has the rights to any organization/concept introduced in X-Men books by default, unless they renegotiate, and even then SWORD relies on a lot of stuff Fox has the rights to.
