As we’ve already stated, we do not expect a seismic shift on “Agents of SHIELD” Tuesday night following “Captain America: Civil War” in the same way that we had one after “The Winter Soldier”; yet, we don’t want to diminish the importance of the Sokovia Accords in particular on “Emancipation.” This is going to lay the groundwork for the final episodes of the season, and to go along with that, it’s also going to introduce a few new wrinkles into the story of the Inhumans.
Speaking on the subject to Entertainment Weekly, Clark Gregg makes it clear that Inhumans having to register themselves could lead to some great divisions and conflicts:
“The Sokovia Accords have their own specific purpose within Civil War having to do with the powered people that we’ve met in The Avengers … It’s representative of how our show functions within the Marvel Universe, in some ways, in that it’s all connected. That ripples through our show because suddenly all these people who are Inhumans in our corner of the universe, they’re all subjected to the Sokovia Accords. That dilemma rises up in our show about the people who feel Inhumans should be registered and those who feel that’s a first step to them being sequestered, imprisoned, exterminated.”
Basically, what this could end up doing is bringing together the forces of Hive even more. It’s an us versus them mentality, and is’t the same sort of thing that we’ve seen over time in everything from sporting events to politics. It’s something that Gregg’s Phil Coulson is going to have to do everything in his power to try and combat.
