The team has expanded in “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” Season 4, but it isn’t complete. Daisy still hasn’t returned after going rogue several months ago, and it doesn’t seem like she is ready to work with her friends yet. Quake will have to find a way to forgive herself first. During New York Comic Con, actress Chloe Bennet told reporters that she believes her character will only stop being so hard on herself to benefit someone else.
“I think she’s so empathetic towards people and she’s so caring towards other people that I think it’ll end up being her — she’ll probably have to do it to help someone else,” Bennet told International Business Times. “Maybe for Coulson. You know what I mean? Because he’s hurting because Daisy’s not there so she’s like, ‘The only way I can get through this is to forgive myself for other people.’ Everything’s kind of about other people for her.”
Despite Mack (Henry Simmons) and Fitz’s (Iain De Caestecker) run in with Daisy in episode 2, Coulson (Clark Gregg) is still holding out hope that his protégé will return. He even feels guilty about her departure. Gregg explained that Coulson believes when he killed Ward (Brett Dalton), he started the chain of events that led to Daisy’s exit.
“He loses a lot of sleep over what he caused and the fact that it seems to have lead to Daisy being gone,” the actor said. “I think the most important thing in his heart right now is about getting her out of danger.”
She isn’t out of trouble yet, though. Bennet warned that the anti-Inhuman group, the Watchdogs, would continue to terrorize the country. “Yes, that will be a big theme throughout at least the beginning. I’m pretty sure. I don’t know, you should ask Jeph [Loeb, executive producer],” she laughed.
While the 24-year-old couldn’t reveal too many spoilers about how involved the Watchdogs are, she promised that they’re a serious threat. “They are a dangerous group of people who are prejudiced against people that they don’t understand,” Bennet emphasized. “I think that they are a very relevant representation of a lot of people that we have in our country right now.”
The Watchdogs and Ghost Rider (Gabriel Luna) are keeping Daisy distracted for now, but they can’t prevent her from dealing with her grief forever. Eventually, the actress thinks that Daisy will ditch the dark eye shadow and return to her old self. It’ll just take a while.
“Obviously, this is a rough time for her, but one of her strongest traits, I really think, is her resilience,” Bennet said. “I think that’ll translate into having that kind of exuberant energy that she had in the first season. I hope so because I would like more of that on set. Because I don’t want to just be like super moody all the time.”
Fans will have to keep watching to see if Daisy finds happiness again. “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” Season 4 airs Tuesdays at 10 p.m. EDT on ABC.
