The Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 3 finale last month revealed some huge change. The team went through a major shake-up, with Coulson no longer the director of S.H.I.E.L.D., but maybe the biggest surprise is that Dasiy is now on the run, being hunted by S.H.I.E.L.D..
Based on some newspaper clippings briefly glimpsed in the finale, Daisy has gone full Quake and is acting as a vigilante independent of the official group. Considering Daisy used to view S.H.I.E.L.D. as her only family, this is a pretty big change for the Agent Formerly Known as Skye. It seems these changes were inspired by the death of her Inhuman boyfriend Lincoln, who sacrificed himself to kill Hive (A.K.A. SquidWard). Just like every other superhero, the death of her loved one will be a major motivator for Daisy.
Chloe Bennet, who plays Daisy on the show, was asked how Daisy will be different on Season 4, and the actress elaborated that Daisy is in a lot of pain, and won’t be feeling quite as sunny as her namesake for awhile. Here’s what she told EW:
I think it makes her more ruthless being so close to what she thought was her own death. And then it happening in one of the worst scenarios she could ever think of, which is the person that she loved doing it for her, I think it changes her in a way where she probably will face life with even more ruthlessness. Also, there’s a sense of sadness that was there that I tried to make apparent at the end of the episode.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will return next season in its new later time slot at 10 P.M. on Tuesday’s on ABC.
