Is Agent Melinda May looking at a career change in Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 3? Actress Ming-Na Wen is hinting at as much. It seems that, after the Hydra reveal of Season 1 and the introduction of the Inhumans in Season 2, May isn’t entirely sure that her heart is with S.H.I.E.L.D. any longer.
"In any situation when someone is so devoted to their work as May was, but then realizing over the last two years that S.H.I.E.L.D. isn't really what she dedicated her life to," Wen tells TVGuide.com. "That there was definitely a lot of corruption to S.H.I.E.L.D., as well as uncertainty now with the Inhumans being brought in by Coulson. It's going to be figuring out her final decision in Season 3 and I think Andrew will probably play a part in it."
The events of Season 2 brought May and her estranged husband, Andrew Garner (Blair Underwood), back together. Ironically, this also brought Garner back to S.H.I.E.L.D., an organizations he had left on poor terms.
"What's interesting is now May is disgruntled by S.H.I.E.L.D., but last season when May came to Andrew with the idea of coming back to S.H.I.E.L.D., he was disgruntled and had left the agency," Underwood says. "But now he's back working with them and the Inhumans."
Will May leave S.H.I.E.L.D.? If she does, what will that mean for her relationship with Andrew?
Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.Season 3 premieres Sept. 29 at 9 p.m. on ABC.
