The latest episode of Agents of SHIELD was a game-changer. But while the show gave some long awaited answers, it threw up even more questions.
After last season’s shock reveal that Agent Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) had been revived with a serum derived from, well, a blue alien (JENGJENGJENGJENG), this season has been focused on finding out why the usually upbeat Coulson has been plagued by the need to carve intricate designs on walls.
This week, Coulson’s finally figured out that the carvings are the map of a city. And now executive producer Jeffrey Bell has revealed that the alien is indeed a member of the Kree race (SHOCK HORROR), last seen in the form of Ronan the Accuser (played by Lee Pace) in Guardians of the Galaxy (2014).
“[SHIELD doesn’t] know anything about the Kree or that there’s a planet full of them…What they do know is that the strange carvings created by Coulson after he was injected with the Kree serum are actually the map of a city, and they need to find that city before Hydra does. But where is it? Here or on another planet?”
There’s also further speculation that this mysterious city might actually be Attilan, the ancestral home of the Inhumans.
If this really is true, then that may explain why Skye and Raina haven’t been affected by the side effects of alien technology — they could be Inhumans!
Marvel previously announced an Inhumans movie as part of Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, slated for release in November 2, 2018.
That’s a looooong way away, but I have a feeling that the Agents of SHIELD mid-season finale might have some answers for us. That is, if they don’t throw up even more questions.
The first season of Agents of SHIELD was really hit and miss, but it’s been really ramping up the excitement in its sophomore outing. Tune in to the next episode, titled “…Ye Who Enter Here”, on December 2.
