We will soon find out the truth about the dead blue alien from the ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ episode “T.A.H.I.T.I.” who is the source of the substance that saved the lives of Phil Coulson, Skye, and other S.H.I.E.L.D. agents. If you don’t want to be spoiled for the next few episodes of the series, avert your eyes, go to jail, do not pass go, and see ‘Guardians of the Galaxy,’ because it’s all connected.
AoS Executive Producer Jeffrey Bell has revealed that the big blue guy is from the humanoid Kree race, the same species that Ronan the Accuser (played by Lee Pace in GoG).
“Our people don’t know anything about the Kree or that there’s a planet full of them,” notes Bell. “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?”
Chloe Bennet also talks about upcoming revelations, which increasingly sound like the series is going to be introducing Inhumans, Attilan, and Terrigen Mist well before any Inhumans films come out.
“You’ll find out that Skye and Raina have something in common — and it’s not that they’re brunettes,” says Bennet. “Some of our überfans think the two of them are aliens. Or maybe they’re something else — something different and special. It’s all leading to a reveal that’s mother-effing crazy.”
If you aren’t watching the series as it is now, you are missing one of the best shows on television. Agent Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) was back again this week, Dichen Lachman (‘Dollhouse’) appears as a pivotal character (whose presence strongly suggests that events in ‘Agent Carter’ and AoS will be connected), and Kyle MacLachlan steals every scene he is in, with lines that sound eerily (and hilariously) like dialogue Joss Whedon would write.
According to AoS Executive Producer Maurissa Tancharoen, we will learn Skye’s real name sooner than we think, and “after the midseason finale, things will never be the same again.”
The Kree, Guardians of the Galaxy, Inhumans, Black Panther, and Captain Marvel are all part of the same mythology. In the comics, the connections between Daredevil, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, Jessica Jones, Dr. Strange, the Avengers, and the Civil War all overlap.
Costa Ronin (‘The Americans’) will join the cast of ‘Agent Carter’ in the role of Anton Vanko, who longtime Marvel Cinematic Universe fans will recognize as the father of one of Tony Stark’s deadliest foes.
