Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 2 Picks Up with Skye Figuring Out Her New Powers!
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 2 is one of the few shows that has not returned from its winter break yet. Instead of returning in January or early February like many other TV shows, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 2 has taken a bit of a break, for an Agent Carter miniseries. Agent Carter was an agent at the SSR, which was the division that was the precursor to shield.
The miniseries takes place in the 1950s, after the events of the Captain America movie, and has been well received by fans so far. A promo clip for the next episode of the season has been released. The show will return the first week of March, and it shows Skye in the aftermath of her turning into an Inhuman. We never knew Skye’s full name on the show, but we now know her name is Daisy Johnson, and her character has some special abilities. Before this point on the show, none of the main characters on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. had any special abilities.
They usually took down minor supervillains in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We know that the returning episode will show how Skye is dealing with the loss of Tripp. He died trying to protect her in the winter finale of the show. Whenever Skye gets emotional or upset, she causes earthquakes, but she doesn’t know how to control her power just yet. Skye doesn’t know how her newfound abilities will affect her relationship with the rest of the team.
While this situation could lead to a slowdown for the storyline in the rest of the season, Clark Gregg (the actor who plays Coulson in the show) says that season two of the show will continue to be very fast paced. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. took some flak because the first season was extremely slow up until the very end of the season, where it suddenly picked up.
None of the team realizes that Skye actually has powers yet, but once they do, it will change the dynamic on the team. Now, it appears that they will be the ones protecting Skye from other people in the world who want what Skye has to offer. Introducing Skye as an Inhuman will be good for the MCU, because the Inhuman’s are a relatively minor part of the Marvel Comics compared to other comic series.
