‘Captain America: Civil War’ brought some major changes to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The Phase Three film introduced the world to the Sokovia Accords, a set of internationally ratified documents that provide regulation of superpowered individuals. In other words, it requires people with powers to register with the United Nations or be labeled criminals. We’ve seen how divisive these documents can be as Captain America and a number of heroes came out against it while Iron Man and his side showed their support.
But this doesn’t only affect the Avengers. Inhuman S.H.I.E.L.D. agents are also under pressure to sign on the dotted line so that they can continue their work with the organization. So far, we’ve only seen Slingshot AKA Elena “Yo-Yo” Rodriguez sign up. Now in this week’s episode of ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’, one of her more high-profile teammates takes the plunge as well.
Television Promos has shared a clip from the next installment of the popular superhero drama on ABC where it appears that the newly reinstated Agent Daisy Johnson AKA Quake will be signing the Sokovia Accords. However, Agent Phil Coulson informs some of the other key players in the organization that they could use this opportunity to gain the upper hand when it comes to their new nemesis Senator Nadeer. Check out what he has to say to General Talbot, Director Mace, and Agents Simmons and “May” in the clip below, followed by the official synopsis of the episode titled ‘Wake Up’:
May races to find the truth about what happened to her, while Aida’s next move could mean the death of them all.
While that plan sounds well and good, the synopsis and the preview at the end of last week’s episode indicates that things may not go as planned. Then again, how often do things really go as planned when it comes to Coulson and company? But the team is resilient, so we’ll see how they get out of this one on Tuesday.
‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ starring Clark Gregg, Ming-Na Wen, Chloe Bennet, Iain De Caestecker, Elizabeth Henstridge, and Henry Simmons airs on Tuesdays at 10:00pm EST on ABC.
