Agents of SHIELD: May Kills Sarge? | ScreenRant

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 6’s most shocking moment just happened: Melinda May (Ming Na Wen) murdered Sarge (Clark Gregg), the doppelganger of the late Phil Coulson, in cold blood! The unthinkable event occurred at the very end of “Collision Course Part II” after S.H.I.E.L.D. stopped Sarge’s plan to detonate an atom bomb to kill Izel (Karolina Wydra), Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 6’s real villain and the creator of the alien planet-killers called the Shrike.

In “Collision Course Part 1”, S.H.I.E.L.D. Director Mack Mackenzie (Henry Simmons) reluctantly recruited Sarge’s help in dealing with Izel and the Shrike. Perhaps the deadliest threat the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. have faced, the Shrike infects the inhabitants of the planets they seek to destroy (turning them into grotesque entities that resemble the crystalline structures of Superman’s Krypton). Sarge and his team have been fighting Izel and the Shrike across many worlds. However, despite his resemblance to Coulson, Sarge has behaved the opposite of the beloved former Director in every way. Sarge betrayed Snowflake (Brooke Williams), his own teammate, and left her behind to die in an atomic explosion. Sarge then commandeered Zephyr-One but lost a brutal fight to Mack and was locked up in the brig. Thankfully, Jaco (Winston James Francis) finished Sarge’s mission and sacrificed himself to destroy Izel’s spaceship.

Sarge remained locked up at the Lighthouse as S.H.I.E.L.D. celebrated a well-earned victory party for saving the world yet again and the return home of Leo Fitz (Iain De Caestacker) and Jemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge) from outer space. But after the party was over, May entered Sarge’s cell and shot him three times in the chest before delivering a headshot! “Collision Course Part II” ended with Sarge seemingly dead by May’s hand.

May harbored the most animosity towards Sarge of all of the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. because she was in love with Phil Coulson; they spent his final days together in Tahiti and she watched him die. Although the other Agents like Daisy Johnson (Chloe Bennet) were unnerved by Sarge being Coulson’s genetic double, May especially despised Sarge ever since he appeared in the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 6 premiere and immediately murdered one of their Agents. May was even kidnapped by Sarge, who taunted her about the affection she has for “this Coulson guy”, but Melinda managed to capture him.

At the victory party, May even confessed to Yo-Yo Rodriguez (Natalia Cordova-Buckley), “I should have killed him the moment I saw him.” After everything they’ve been through with Sarge, it’s quite clear he’s nothing like Phil Coulson despite their mysterious DNA match. Still, no matter how much she hates Sarge, it’s totally unlike May to just murder him without remorse, so there’s much more to this act of vengeance than meets the eye.

Now, it’s possible that Sarge either isn’t really dead or could still manage to come back. When Sarge and Izel had a verbal confrontation in “Collision Course Part II”, the mystery woman indicated she knows who Sarge actually is and that she knows his real name, which he himself has forgotten. Furthermore, Izel’s barb to Sarge – “Whose skin are you saving now? Just the one you’re wearing, I hope” – allude to a new wrinkle to the mystery of how Sarge resembles Coulson. Is Sarge some kind of shapeshifter or was Coulson somehow cloned but with a mind in a tabula rasa state that was infused with Sarge’s personality?

The answers to the major questions surrounding Sarge are sure to be revealed in season 6’s final episodes, but fans can look forward to some major teases at San Diego Comic-Con next week when Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. take over Hall H for the first time.

Agents of SHIELD Season 6 Photos Confirm Clark Gregg’s New Character Name

ABC has released a set of promotional images ahead of Agents of SHIELD season 6, and seemingly confirmed the name of the character Clark Gregg will be playing. It’s probably fair to say that Marvel Studios’ television output is going through a transitional phase at present, with Netflix culling its MCU-related content on one hand, and the Disney+ streaming service announcing exciting new ventures on the other. Remaining steadfast throughout all the upheaval is ABC’s Agents of SHIELD, which is currently gearing up to premiere its sixth season, with a seventh, and possibly final, run already confirmed to be in the works.

Viewers will remember that SHIELD season 5 concluded in highly dramatic fashion. Fresh from escaping a post-apocalyptic future and defeating the twisted villain known as Graviton, the time comes for Gregg’s wisecracking father figure, Phil Coulson, to keep his end of the Ghost Rider deal made in season 4. Essentially, Coulson was allowed to borrow Ghost Rider’s powers but, in return, the Spirit of Vengeance demanded Coulson die as nature intended from the wound inflicted by Loki in The Avengers. The final moments of season 5 saw Coulson resigned to his fate, spending his last days on a beach paradise with Melinda May.

Despite this, Gregg will be back in SHIELD season 6, but the actor has confirmed that he’ll be playing a different character who’s supposedly a mixture of several influences from the Marvel comics. ABC (via TV Line) have now unveiled some stylish promo shots featuring the main cast: Ming-Na Wen as Melinda May, Chloe Bennet as Daisy Johnson/Quake, Henry Simmons as Director Mackenzie, Natalie Cordova-Buckley as Yo-Yo, Elizabeth Henstridge as Jemma Simmons, Iain De Caestecker as Leo Fitz, and Jeff Ward as Deke. Finally, there’s also an image of Clark Gregg, listed as “Sarge.”

Despite the confirmation of Gregg’s new character, the name predictably doesn’t provide too many clues as to his role in season 6. There’s no immediately obvious direct character connection to the Marvel comic books that could reveal exactly who Sarge is, and the title itself is deliberately vague. However, there’s a clear military connection to Gregg’s new character, which might imply that he belongs to some kind of outside special ops division, the likes of which have cropped up in SHIELD on various occasions. In considerably less intriguing news, the photos also reaffirm that Mack has taken over as Director of SHIELD.

The key question regarding Sarge’s role in SHIELD season 6 is why he bears such an uncanny resemblance to Phil Coulson. Is Sarge a Life Model Decoy with a Coulson-shaped shell, or was Coulson’s dead body recovered by a group of shady bad guys and implanted with a new persona? And of course, the question most fans will be desperately asking: will the real Phil Coulson ever return? Considering the success of Captain Marvel, in which Gregg reprises his SHIELD role, it would seem logical to capitalize on the character’s big screen exposure and have him return to the show properly before too long.

Marvel Already Did Captain Marvel’s Story (But Better) on Agents of SHIELD

Diehard MCU fans may find the plot of Captain Marvel to be rather familiar, as it’s extremely reminiscent of Quake’s story in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Set in 1995, Captain Marvel is an origin story that attempts to break with the traditional Marvel formula. It kicks off with the superhero already serving as a member of the Kree Starforce, and it’s only when she comes crashing down to Earth that she begins to learn the truth of her own identity and the secret of her powers.

Marvel wanted to take a different approach to the superhero’s origin. As co-writer Nicole Perlman explained, Marvel was concerned about making her story too similar to Green Lantern’s. It’s easy to understand why they were worried; the broad strokes of the plot are very similar. Carol Danvers is an Air Force pilot who gains tremendous powers after an alien spaceship crashes, and she then goes on to join a group of cosmic peacekeepers.

Oddly enough, though, by changing the narrative Marvel Studios unwittingly made Captain Marvel very similar to another Marvel superhero – Chloe Bennet’s Quake, one of the main characters of Marvel Television’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. But which one told the story better: the MCU blockbuster, or the popular Marvel TV series?

  • This Page: The Similarities Between Quake and Captain Marvel
  • Page 2: Was Quake or Captain Marvel’s Story Better?

Quake and Captain Marvel Are Half-Kree Superheroes With Similar Mysterious Backstories

There are obvious similarities between Quake and Captain Marvel. They’re both important female superheroes: Captain Marvel is the first female character to headline her own MCU movie, while Quake is the star of Marvel’s flagship TV series. Both are tied to the alien race known as the Kree: Quake is an Inhuman, an evolutionary offshoot of humanity created millennia ago by the Kree; Carol Danvers unknowingly worked with the rogue Kree agent Mar-Vell and was exposed to Tesseract energy. Both women were also infused with Kree blood in order to save their lives: Quake when she was shot in the gut by a Hydra agent, and Captain Marvel when she was exposed to Space Stone energy.

The surface-level similarities aren’t the end of it, however. Quake and Captain Marvel both wound up working with S.H.I.E.L.D. in order to discover their true history. Quake had been dumped at an orphanage by S.H.I.E.L.D. agents, and it took her two seasons to unravel the mystery of her origins, learning that she’s the daughter of Mr. Hyde and the Inhuman Jiaying. Captain Marvel, by contrast, arrived on Earth to discover she’d been lied to, and wasn’t really a Kree warrior at all. Working with S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Nick Fury, she learned that she was a human test pilot who’d been transformed after a Tesseract engine exploded.

Both superheroes have been manipulated by the Kree. In the case of Captain Marvel, the Kree either caused her amnesia or took advantage of it, persuading her that she was one of them and using her as a weapon. They installed a device on her neck to inhibit her powers to ensure they could control her. In Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 5 the Kree attempted to use Daisy as a weapon as well, implanting a device that allowed them to control – and, when necessary, inhibit – her powers. In each case, the Kree ultimately trapped the women in a virtual reality environment called the Astralscape. The attempts failed, with both breaking free by sheer force of will.

Page 2: Was Quake or Captain Marvel’s Story Better?

While there are striking similarities between Captain Marvel and Quake, on closer examination Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has told a better story. In large part this is because Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. successfully pitched Quake’s backstory as a mystery. When she was introduced in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 1, Quake didn’t even know her real name; she’d grown up at an orphanage with the name “Skye.” As a result, viewers had absolutely no idea who she really was, no matter how familiar they were with the comics. The first clues turned out to be dead ends, and it was only when Quake was saved from death by Kree blood – without any side-effects – that some comic book readers began to guess she might be an Inhuman. The truth was gradually revealed in season 2, although even then it confused fans for a while; in the comics, Quake had traditionally been viewed as a mutant, not as an Inhuman.

Contrast this with Captain Marvel, where the mystery of Carol Danvers really isn’t too difficult to piece together. Marvel did their best to retain some sense of intrigue by avoiding revealing the identity of Jude Law’s character in the marketing, but as soon as fans began to suspect he might be Yon-Rogg, the pieces fell into place. It was an open secret that Carol Danvers had been a United States pilot who got caught up in some sort of alien crash-landing, and that the Starforce weren’t going to be the “noble warrior heroes” Carol believed them to be.

Tying in to this, while there are similarities between the two women, there’s one notable difference between the plot of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and that of Captain Marvel. In the case of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Quake was introduced as a part of a world viewers already knew – the world of Nick Fury, Phil Coulson, and S.H.I.E.L.D. – and was used to explore a world they did not. Quake learned who she was by diving into a brand new corner of the MCU, finding her place in Jiaying’s Inhuman Sanctuary in season 2 and only learning her own significance to the Kree by season 5. Every season added new layers to the show’s mythology, which by this time has become pretty sophisticated.

This is a perfect inversion of the approach taken by Captain Marvel. While the film does add new elements to the MCU, all of those are introduced at the beginning of the film not at the end. Captain Marvel is introduced as a part of something viewers had never seen before in the MCU: a member of the elite Kree Starforce, based on Hala, receiving advice from the Supreme Intelligence. As Captain Marvel investigates her own history, she finds herself diving into parts of the MCU that we already know; she meets Nick Fury, she allies with S.H.I.E.L.D., she infiltrates Project P.E.G.A.S.U.S. and steals a Quadjet, and she ultimately stumbles upon the Tesseract, Marvel’s favorite MacGuffin. By the end of the film, Carol Danvers is woven into the familiar tapestry of the MCU. It’s easy to understand why Marvel took this approach, but in dramatic terms Quake was handled better.

In truth, it was probably always going to be the case that Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. told this story in a better way than Captain Marvel. Although blockbuster movies have bigger budgets, the reality is that TV shows have a major advantage when it comes to adapting comic books, because both comics and TV shows follow an episodic format. That same format is ideally suited to drawing out complex mysteries, to spending time with characters in order to ensure they grow and develop, and to building complex mythologies over time. All these advantages work in Quake’s favor, making her story far more effective and immersive.

Agents of SHIELD Season 6 Cast Photo: Not-Coulson Lurks, Fitz Returns

Marvel releases the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 6 cast photo, featuring the return of Fitz (Iain De Caestecker) and Clark Gregg’s new character. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 5 concluded last May after a year that sent the team to the future, and to space. The Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 5 finale saw agents save the world from Graviton, but they were unable to save their leader, Phil Coulson (Gregg), or fellow team member Leo Fitz. Coulson lived out the rest of his days until his fatal injury from The Avengers eventually killed him – again – off screen, and while Fitz died, the remaining agents set out to rescue a past version of Fitz from space.

As a result, the team is going to look a little different at the start of season 6. Fitz won’t be around, Mack is the new S.H.I.E.L.D. director, Deke has joined the team and Daisy and May are still processing their grief for Coulson. However, the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 6 trailer confirmed Gregg will return in some form, though the exact nature of his role is unclear. Gregg himself teased he’s playing “Not Phil Coulson,” but fans can only speculate what exactly that means. Still, fans are eagerly looking forward to Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 6 after its year-long hiatus and now Marvel further teases the show’s return.

Producer Geoffrey Colo released a new photo of the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 6 cast, which can be viewed below. The image sees all the major cast members standing around a table, seemingly recreating Leonardo da Vinci’s The Last Supper. From left to right, the photo includes Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen), Gregg’s mysterious character, Elena “Yo-Yo” Rodriguez (Natalia Cordova-Buckley), Alphonso “Mack” MacKenzie (Henry Simmons), Daisy Johnson (Chloe Bennet), Leo Fitz, Jemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge) and Deke Shaw (Jeff Ward). Check out the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 6 cast photo:

In addition to the photo, EW reports Lou Diamond Phillips will direct the fifth episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 6, reteaming with his Stargate Universe co-star Wen. Phillips joins fellow season 6 directors that include Gregg, who helmed an episode of season 5 and the season 6 premiere. Phillips said of directing an Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. episode:

I got the call when I was directing Fear of the Walking Dead down in Austin: ‘Would you direct an episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.?’ ‘Yeah, done.’ Instant answer, because of the world, because it’s Marvel. It’s big. It’s comic-book stuff. It’s action. It’s mythology. It’s science-fiction. It’s all of that rolled into one. And of course my old friend Ming-Na was on it. That’s crazy, that’s wonderful!

ABC hasn’t yet announced when Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 6 will premiere, though it has been confirmed the show will return in May after about a year-long hiatus. It’s likely the cast will reveal the premiere date at the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. WonderCon panel this weekend. After all, the panel will screen the entire season 6 premiere episode for attendees, so even those not able to get into the panel will have something to look forward to out of the convention.

Until a premiere date is announced, fans can take heart in the fact that Marvel and ABC are kicking promotion of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 6 into high gear. Of course, it still remains to be seen if Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will tie into the MCU movies, especially considering Avengers: Endgame hits theaters just before the show returns. However, even if the series stays mostly separate, fans are looking forward to the return of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and seeing what’s next for the agents.

Every Loose Plot Thread Agents of SHIELD Has Left For Seasons 6 and 7

Agents of SHIELD Season 5 and 6

What could happen in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. seasons 6 and 7? When the scripts were written for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 5, the show’s fate seemed to be up in the air. As such, the season finale was carefully designed to wrap up as many plot threads as possible, so it could potentially serve as an end to the entire show. In the end, though, ABC renewed the series for an abbreviated sixth season, which will air in the summer; they then surprised everybody by announcing a seventh season as well, which is reportedly due to start filming in February.

So far, precious little is known about Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. seasons 6 or 7. Only two images have been released: one showing that Quake will get a new hairstyle, and the other confirming that Mack is still in place as Director (at least when season 6 begins). Chatter among the crew on social media has suggested that a trailer has been prepared, and that they’re pleased with it, but it will presumably still be a while before that trailer airs.

For all season 5 did try to tie together as many loose ends as possible, there are still a lot of interesting ideas that Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. could toy with going forwards. Since 2013, the show has established its own unique mythology; while it fits comfortably within the wider Marvel Cinematic Universe, it’s telling a story all its own. That’s proved a remarkable success, so it’s safe to say that seasons 6 and 7 will continue to build on the foundations of what has gone before.

The Fate Of Phil Coulson

Clark Gregg as Phil Coulson in Agents of Shield

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 5 came to a close with Phil Coulson facing imminent death. Hosting the Spirit of Vengeance had undone the miraculous effect of Project T.A.H.I.T.I., meaning his body was gradually shutting down. Although the S.H.I.E.L.D. team did everything they could to save Coulson, in the end they were forced to accept his fate. Phil settled down on the real Tahiti to live out the last few days of his life, with Melinda May staying with him.

But will Coulson actually die? This is a superhero show, after all, which means that nobody should truly be considered dead – not even when you’ve seen the body. Clark Gregg has had meetings with executive producers Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen, but the outcome of those meetings is unknown. Certainly Gregg has been on set, but that’s partly because he’s taken on a role behind the camera as director, even taking charge of the season 6 premiere. Right now, it’s impossible to say whether or not Phil Coulson will return.

Retrieving Fitz From Space

The first episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 6 is called “Missing Pieces,” and that seems entirely appropriate. Season 5 ended with the S.H.I.E.L.D. team heading into space to retrieve one of their members, Fitz, who was slumbering in cryogenic suspension somewhere in the depths of space. The season 6 announcement showed the S.H.I.E.L.D. logo against a backdrop of stars and swirling stellar gases, so it seems safe to say season 6 will remain in space – perhaps kicking off with S.H.I.E.L.D. retrieving Fitz. It’s sure to be a strange experience for his beloved Simmons, as she spent months of her life with a version of Fitz from a timeline that’s been averted – and even married him.

The Chronicoms

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 5 introduced some major new elements into the show’s mythology. One of the most fascinating was the idea of the Chronicoms, ancient androids who have monitored human civilization for millennia. Forbidden to intervene except in the case of an extinction level event, the Chronicoms revealed themselves in order to help S.H.I.E.L.D. save the entire planet. One of the two Chronicoms, Noah, was killed; the other, Enoch, is currently in space watching over the sleeping Fitz, so picking up Fitz will inevitably mean the S.H.I.E.L.D. team cross paths with Enoch. Interestingly, there’s some evidence the Chronicoms could play an important part in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 6. According to IMDb, Denney Pierce will play “Chronicom Hunter #1” in episode 5. Assuming this is accurate, it means Enoch will wind up hunted down by unknown forces over the course of the season.

Quake’s Power-Up

Quake could be more powerful than ever before in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 6. Quake was forced to inject herself with the Centipede Serum in order to defeat Graviton, and blasted him into space with her enhanced powers. It’s unknown exactly what components were part of this version of the Centipede Serum. Extremis seems to have been in every version, so was probably part of the cocktail, but certainly S.H.I.E.L.D. had added Jiaying’s healing properties into the mix in order to keep Coulson alive. So, the sample Daisy injected herself with likely contained both Extremis and Jiaying’s powers. It also possibly contained a variant of the super-soldier serum, and perhaps even sources of Gamma radiation, both of which were common components in the Centipede Serum.

Chloe Bennet released a single image of her new Quake look in season 6, and it’s interesting to note that she’s back to wearing wrist gauntlets. There’s always been a cost to Quake’s abilities, and she’s previously needed to be emotionally centered in order to use them without damaging her own body. It’s possible that Quake’s amplified powers mean she needs to wear the gauntlets permanently now. Meanwhile, it will be exciting to see whether or not the Centipede Serum triggers any new abilities in Daisy – whether she gains Extremis-based enhanced strength, for example, or her mother’s regenerative powers. Some versions of the Centipede Serum have had detrimental affects upon their subjects, and it’s even possible Quake’s enhancement could backfire in some way.

Of course, what’s unknown is whether or not this affect will be permanent. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Jed Whedon refused to give any indication. “Well, she’s definitely juiced up in some way,” he noted, “and how much that carries, we’ll see.

Page 2 of 2: Some Of The Most Important Stories That Could Be Revisited

The Sixth Race Of The Confederacy

The villains of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 5 were an alien Confederacy, a thousand-year-old alliance between different groups who plunder resources from other worlds and trade with one another. They included the Kree outcast faction House Kasius, the shadow-warrior race called the Remorath, the brutal Rajaks, a possibly-nomadic race called the Kallusians, and the metal-manipulating Astrans. It’s possible the Confederacy aren’t done with Earth; certainly the Rajaks may want revenge given Graviton killed their leader.

But here’s the catch: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. revealed that there’s a sixth member of the Confederacy, but didn’t identify who those aliens are. That’s led many to speculate that the sixth race in the Confederacy is intended to be the Skrulls, but that the show didn’t have permission to use them until after Captain Marvel. If that’s the case, the S.H.I.E.L.D. crew could be facing a terrifying and dangerous new threat.

What Will Happen To Deke?

Jeff Ward has been promoted to a series regular for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 6, which means the time-traveling Deke is sure to be important in some way. Deke originates from a now-averted future timeline in which the Earth was shattered like an egg, and he was last seen heading off to enjoy the Earth. How will he team up with S.H.I.E.L.D. again, and will Deke’s unrequited love for Quake ultimately mean he gets a shot at romance?

The Mystery Of Vijay Nadeer

Season 4 introduced viewers to Vijay Nadeer, the brother of an anti-Inhuman senator who unfortunately possessed an Inhuman gene. Exposed to Terrigen, he underwent an unusually gradual form of Terrigenesis, and emerged from a cocoon with some sort of combat instincts and enhanced reflexes. Vijay was shot by his sister, and his body was dumped into the ocean; curiously, trace elements of Terrigen in the water triggered secondary Terrigenesis, and a new cocoon formed around Vijay’s body. The idea of secondary Terrigenesis was revisited by Marvel’s Inhumans series, which revealed that it damages the Inhuman’s mind. Vijay hasn’t been seen since Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 4, so he’s surely overdue to return.

Could The Ghost Rider Return?

Gabriel Luna as Robbie Reyes Ghost Rider in Agents of SHIELD

Of course, there’s one character from Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 4 who every fan wants to see return; Gabriel Luna’s Ghost Rider. Luna played Robbie Reyes, a car mechanic from Los Angeles who became host to the Spirit of Vengeance, and he proved to be an absolute hit. The special effects were stunning, although they proved too expensive to keep the character for the full 22 episodes. Season 4 ended with Ghost Rider taking possession of the Darkhold, using his chain to open a portal, and stepping through it. He’s not been seen since – but there’s a huge appetite for the Ghost Rider’s return.

How Is Agent Davis Still Alive?

Played by Max Osinski, Agent Davis has been a recurring secondary member of the S.H.I.E.L.D. team – introduced all the way back in season 1. His fate appeared to be sealed during season 4, when he turned his back on Aida, failing to realize she was still alive. Davis curiously survived an encounter with the psychopathic ex-android, though, apparently walking away with only a scar. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has never explained what happened, but Davis quite enjoys telling the story – and it’s a rather spectacular one, prompting an astonished reaction from Deke.

But is it true? After all, Davis apparently survived an encounter with a powerful being known for creating android doppelgangers of S.H.I.E.L.D. agents. What’s more, the show exists in a cinematic universe where there are at least two races of shapeshifters, the Skrulls and the Xartans (introduced in Runaways). Many fans believe that all is not as it seems, and that Davis was really killed by Aida – and replaced. Interestingly enough, Davis is the only cast member confirmed to be appearing throughout season 6 on IMDb. So this mystery may well be resolved.
