In a previous post, the later timeslot of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D hung between two (out of many) possible fates: darker storylines or the ‘death slot.’ Actress Chloe Bennet’s interview with the EW’s Spoiler Room may have shed some light on the show’s fate and what to expect for her character Daisy Johnson.
After the fallout from Daisy’s battle with Hive in season 3, it seems that she would be dealing with the burdens of isolation and the secret she’s still keeping: that Daisy could go back to Hive, if given the chance. “The two people who know she did that are both dead, so no one else knows,” said Bennet, referring to Daisy’s secret. “There must be a moment coming up in the next season where she reveals that. I think she feels like she can’t get close to people because wherever she goes, death follows. That hit home with her, especially this time.”
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D has been moved to a later timeslot and a possible darker character could be included in the show’s roster. In addition, anyone (especially superheroes) who’s experienced loss and isolation with no help coping would be left vulnerable, so a darker storyline isn’t that big a leap to make.
With both the movie and TV universes going down a darker path is there still hope that the heroes of the Marvel universe would see happy days and ends?
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D will premiere on ABC September 20 at 10/9c
