“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” keeps bringing in new characters, but would they consider bringing back an old one? Cal (Kyle MacLachlan) was written off the ABC drama at the end of Season 2, but actress Chloe Bennet, who plays Daisy, thinks his return has to happen eventually.
Bennet gave her opinion Sunday during a Q&A at a Chicago fan convention, C2E2. An audience member asked if Daisy’s father would ever be seen again. “I think we will, because everyone loves Kyle [MacLachlan]. He is awesome,” she said, Comic Book Resources reports.
Cal’s return wouldn’t bring back the exact same character that fans watched during Season 2. He spent much of his storyline trying to get his family back, but in his final episode, his mind was erased. He wasn’t aware that Daisy was his daughter, and he couldn’t recall anything about Inhumans or the experiments that gave him powers. He was simply a veterinarian opening a new office. Still, MacLachlan has previously said he was open to the possibility of returning.
“They’ve left it open. We haven’t really spoken about it, so I don’t know what to expect,” the actor told Collider last year. “I think they left the door ajar for him. He’s still around. He’s in a happier place now, but who’s to say if that’s going to remain that way. I don’t know. It would be fun. I would enjoy it.”
Though Cal’s return doesn’t seem likely for Season 3, there are still plenty of other surprises in store for the rest of the upcoming episodes. “I do know what happens at the end of this season and it's crazy,” Bennet teased.
“Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” can throw all the shockers they want to at audiences this year, and that might even include a few cliffhangers. They’ve already been renewed for Season 4, so they have plenty of time to set up storylines for next year.
“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” Season 3 airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. EDT on ABC.
