While Adrianne Palicki is pretty busy these days working on ‘The Orville,’ she still has a special place in her heart for ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ and would love to return to the play the part. Her character of Bobbi Morse was written off the show with Nick Blood’s Lance Hunter after the third season of the series. It was initially to film a pilot for ‘Marvel’s Most Wanted‘ which ABC ended up passing on. While the two wouldn’t have been able to rejoin S.H.I.E.L.D., we already saw the character of Hunter return in the fifth season to help out the agents who are also still on the run.
According to Palicki:
“Listen, if they ask me to come back, I would absolutely come back. I was like, ‘Nick [Blood] came back [for a Season 5 episode] — what the hell, guys?'”
Her absence was addressed by Blood’s character when he said that both he and Bobi had “a tiff” and were flying solo these days. The two have had an on and off again relationship since they were first introduced so this isn’t a huge surprise and in no way, shape, or form would prevent the two from both appearing together again down the line.
As to the episode that was filmed, the actress shared that, ” Oh, I saw the pilot. It was actually really, really good. It was a little darker, grittier….” As to what happened in the pilot, Palicki didn’t share the exact details but was able to reveal this:
“We were mercenaries, yeah. It’s kind of an extension of what we were dealing with before, where we, like, ended up trying to get married again and all hell breaks loose because people are after us. Ultimately it’s us just kind of fighting for our lives.”
With how Blood’s character showed back up, the whole marriage not happening shouldn’t be that much of a surprise.
Would you love to see Adrianne Palicki return as Mockingbird on Marvel’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’? Do you think she can fit in filming for both the series and ‘The Orville’ at the same time? If she did return would it be as a one-off such as Nick Blood returned for or as an ongoing role? Share your thoughts in the comments below, True Believers!
