Last month, ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.‘ executive producer Jed Whedon revealed that the events of ‘Captain America: Civil War’ would directly affect Director Phil Coulson and his team. Though he wouldn’t get into any details, many assumed that he meant that literally because of the way that ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ impacted ABC’s corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, it seems like the Phase Three will be reflected thematically as well.
As we saw on the latest episode of the hit Marvel drama, Agent Daisy Johnson was revealed to be the Inhuman that was infected by Hive after Coulson and company suspected all the other Secret Warriors. With the parasite infecting Quake, she left her team to die in their own base and departed to join the former Grant Ward and HYDRA. With one of the most powerful S.H.I.E.L.D. agents going rogue and switching sides, where does that leave Chloe Bennet’s character in the impending war? The actress recently spoke to Entertainment Weekly to address this concerns and compare the developments to the same troubles Steve Rogers and Tony Stark about to face in about two weeks:
“There’s going to obviously be a struggle. There’s an aspect of it that was kind of exciting. We get to basically see how powerful Daisy has been and how much she’s been holding back. Without her moral compass working, her powers are so much more powerful than we even thought. You even see it with Malick; the way she kills him is so brutal and not something you’ve ever seen from her before. Moving forward, that will continue to happen. That really ties into the debate in ‘Civil War’. You see how an Inhuman in the wrong hands, or manipulated by the wrong person, is incredibly dangerous. You really see how much control Daisy has had up to this point of her powers. Then you see them unleash a little bit.”
It will be so cool to see Quake unleashed after all of this time, but these definitely weren’t the circumstances that True Believers were expecting. With only four episodes left in the season, including the actual tie-in episode with ‘Civil War’, business is certainly about to pick up. And with the promise of death looming above everyone’s heads, that may not be a good thing, especially for anyone with S.H.I.E.L.D. allegiances.
What do you think will happen to Daisy Johnson in the final four episodes of this season of ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’? Who will make it out alive? And are you suddenly regretting your wishes to see SkyeWard reunited? Sound off in the comments below.
‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ starring Brett Dalton, Ming-Na Wen, Iain De Caestecker, Elizabeth Henstridge, Nick Blood, Adrianne Palicki, Chloe Bennet, Henry Simmons, Luke Mitchell, and Clark Gregg airs on Tuesdays at 9:00pm on ABC.
Despite being a “professional writer”, Ben likes run-on sentences and puns far too much. Also, he’s excited to see how these developments with Quake shake up the MCU. For more of his attempts at being funny and the occasional insightful thought, follow him on Twitter and Instagram.
