Why are we here? That is a question that has racked the brains of everyone from the greatest thinkers in the world to the developing young minds at university classrooms (or more likely at dive bars near campus). But what happens when the complications of being part alien are thrown into the mix? Apparently we’ll find out during the second half of this season of ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’.
During a recent interview with TV Insider, Clark Gregg shared six reasons to watch the exploits of Director Phil Coulson and his crew now that they’re back in action. Aside from touching on characters like Fitz and “Ward”, the fan-favorite actor discussed HYDRA and the formation of the Secret Warriors. But the conversation got a bit more interesting when he touched on the philosophy of the Inhumans. As we have seen already, there are different schools of thought perpetuated by the likes of Jiaying and Lash and others about what the Inhumans are and what their purpose is. And according to Gregg, we’ll be getting a little bit more of that as the third season continues:
“There are [Inhumans] who were students of Jiaying, Daisy’s mom, who feel that it’s a fabric and that they are all complementary and that they’re meant to fulfill some unified effort. And suddenly there are people who are Inhumans who are very dangerous, and [other Inhumans] are the only way to deal with them. It puts Daisy in a very uncomfortable position and it creates an ‘us’ and ‘them’ vibe on the team that puts every character in a complex position.”
While already interesting to know that we’ll be learning more about the Inhumans and their philosophies, I’m more intrigued by Daisy’s positioning all of this. Obviously, she wants to do good and help people, but will any of these new points of view speak to her in a way that may see her leave the team? There’s a lot of season left, so anything can happened, but I’m very curious to see where Agent Johnson lands by the time the finale rolls around.
What do you think about Clark Gregg’s comments regarding the Inhumans? Are you interested to learn more about the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s most mysterious group of people (at the moment)? Sound off in the comments.
