So far, “Agents of SHIELD” season 2 has been a crazy journey for Skye … and it is only about to get even crazier. You should not look at the Inhumans reveal as the zenith of her story. Instead, it is in many ways just the beginning of what is going to be a difficult road for her to understand these powers, and also figure out how to use them for good.
Chloe Bennet understands now that she is going to have an enormous role moving into Tuesday night’s spring premiere, and she tells Entertainment Weekly that excitement is not going to be an emotion in her mind after what happened. Instead, it is more along the lines of grief:
“We’ll see her dealing with the loss of Trip … She feels extremely guilty over that considering he went down there to save her and then he died. It’s a lot of her figuring out that, ‘Oh, when I got upset down there, an earthquake happened, and I keep getting upset and that may be happening again.’ It’s her exploring whether or not it is her that is creating these things, and then her dealing with what she has to tell the team, because people who have powers, from S.H.I.E.L.D.’s perspective, are put on the Index. That’s not really a place she wants to be, I don’t think.”
Eventually, Skye could become one of the most dangerous and valuable members of the team. For the time being, though, this is just danger. This show has given her a prolonged origin story, so we don’t quite imagine her figuring this out immediately.
