Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has been on deathwatch ever since the midseason premiere episode, “Bouncing Back,” hinted that someone on the team is going to find themselves in an exploding Quinjet in space. The idea was cemented when Daisy Johnson saw a vision of it happening in “Spacetime,” and the idea that someone would die as a result was seemed to be confirmed when Daisy told Lincoln as much in the most recent episode, “Paradise Lost.”
But hey, this is television. TV shows pull fake outs and plant red herrings all of the time, but if series star Clark Gregg is to be believed, these death threats are to be taken seriously.
Gregg was a guest on last night’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live – part of Kimmel’s “Marvel Week” – and he spoke a bit about the ever-present specter of TV death.
“It seems like a big deal now,” Gregg tells Kimmel. “People kill people off a lot on Game of Thrones, Walking Dead, and our show as well. People will be working and having a good day, and all of a sudden you look and all the executive producers are by the monitor, and everyone’s like, ‘Don’t look at ‘em…Oh my god, they’re looking at me! They’re looking at me right now!’ And you think, ‘This is it.’”
The really interesting part came when Kimmel asked when the last time this happened was, to which Gregg replied, “Kinda recently,” and then realized he may have said too much.
This seems to confirm that a major character will die before the end of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 3, so now the question becomes “Who?” Daisy’s vision shows Yo-Yo’s cross necklace floating, but that could be misdirection. Yo-Yo seems to share a connection with both Mack and Joey, so perhaps she gives the necklace to one of them before they head into space.
On the other hand, in order to remain consistent with her previous vision, Daisy would have to be seeing these events as they happen, so perhaps she’s seeing her own death. Then again, it could be more misdirection, similar to how she believed she saw Coulson shooting her, but it turned out to be Coulson firing at a mirror. Perhaps Daisy is only viewing these events through some kind of video monitor that is still active in the Quinjet.
